PUBLISHER'S INBOX


'Basically



nothing'

T n your column you ask forfeedback.
I OK, here's some:
"Today, Nov. 1, 2013,1 read
the Sun. I was particularly looking for
more news on the
Affordable Care Act
problems. To my
chagrin, basically
nothing! There was a
Small mention under
"National News
Briefs" in an article
about democratic
unity, but that's it-
David are you kidding!
D Q *1"I have written in
DUNN-RANKIN the past and men-
tioned that I read
PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHER three newspapers a
three newspapers a
day. Your competition had many articles
on the subject, which is what I would
expect of this subject, again, you had
basically nothing. To get the news Ifind
myself depending more and more on
other publications. As an ex-businessman,
Ifind your business model fatally flawed."
-EM
Hello EM. We went back and counted.
From Oct. 1 to Nov. 1, we had 35 stories,
briefs, or columns in the paper that dealt
with Obamacare.
I will admit, I thought the number
would have been higher, but the gov-
ernment shutdown seemed to have had
a higher news priority compared with
the Affordable Care Act during that time
period.

Looking for trouble
"As a 24-year subscriber, I can't help but
wonder why you keep looking for trouble.
Negative people seem to thrive in their
misery. Positive people are pretty much
happy and realize that change is the only
constant in life.
"If a reader offers a good suggestion that
will work,fine. If not, then I don't see any
positive benefit in telling teachers how to
teach, doctors how to heal, or publishers
how to publish. But then, that's just one
opinion, and we all have one."-JR
JR, I admit I look for trouble. We have
about 635 paychecks every week. We
have about 1 million interactions with
the public in some fashion every week.
I freely admit it is very hard for me to
understand what is going on throughout
our company and with all of our custom-
er interactions. I need to make it clear
that I want to hear where we fall short.
My employees sometimes wonder
what in the heck I am thinking invit-
ing customers to share their thoughts
each week. I think asking for customer
feedback is part of the culture we strive
to create. One that is open to praise,
suggestions and criticisms. To be a great
community paper, first and foremost, we
must be servants.

Do not scrub
"l am so annoyed that you are picking
and choosing columns from Leonard Pitts
that might offend your readers. If they
disagree with him, let them speak their
minds. He is adamant in what he believes
and it is his right. Do not scrub his
column just because it might upset some
of your readers."- JG
JG, we pick and choose with all of our
columnists, not just Leonard Pitts. Some
days a columnist is interesting and some
days not. Leonard Pitts has some off
days.
The additional challenge with Leonard
Pitts is he is the company bugler sound-
ing a specific call to battle. He may be the
best in the country playing that call-
but a good newspaper needs a sympho-
ny of columnists, not just buglers. We try
to mix and match columnists to please as
many reader tastes as possible.

DNA key to burglary case


Report: North Port suspect tied to South Gulf Cove incident


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER
DNA evidence tied a North Port man
to at least one residential burglary in
the South Gulf Cove area in July, in
which the alleged burglar removed
hurricane shutters to gain access to
the home and left blood
on the scene after injur-
ing himself, according
H15 to the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office.
M M NikolayVladimirovic
Ivanenko, 31, of the 2600
block of Cliff Street, was
IVANENKO charged with two counts


of burglary and one count of grand
theft, after being connected to the
Englewood burglary. The homeowners
were out of town, a report shows.
But according to reports, Ivanenko
is believed to be connected to six
burglaries in the South Gulf Cove
area that share the same modus
operandi of hurricane shutters having
been removed to gain access to, or
attempted access to, houses where the
homeowners were out of town. The
burglaries took place between July and
September, according to a report.
Ivanenko's DNA was allegedly found
at at least one home on Miami Circle,
the report states, after authorities


discovered blood and hair samples
near a broken window where the
hurricane shutters had been removed.
The report states that the shutters
were removed and a landscaping rock
was used to break a window in the
rear of the home, and jewelry, alcohol,
power tools, a guitar, a pair of binoc-
ulars and $500 in cash were allegedly
stolen.
The crime was discovered on July 29
when a maintenance man found
hurricane shutters removed from a
separate, neighboring home lying
on the ground, and when authorities

Chambers offer business-friendly advice


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
After eight years of operating his busi-
ness from home, building contractor T.J.
Thornberry last spring decided to lease
office space, adding to his overhead and
to his list of responsibilities.
However, in the hectic weeks that
surrounded his move, he was late in
filing an annual report required of all
corporations. The result was having to
pay a penalty three times the $150 fee.
"That's a month's rent," he said. "I'm
trying to grow my business and I get hit


with that. I just saw it as a regulatory
burden."
Last week, state agencies endeavored
to ask business owners directly how
the government could help create jobs
and a better business environment. If
officials asked local chambers for their
ideas on how to improve the commer-
cial climate, they would have gotten an
earful.
"I asked an array of people and they
said there is a need for more advertising
and low-cost loans," said Deborah Beck,
executive director of the Englewood
Cape Haze Chamber of Commerce.


She explained the state's focus on
bringing more business to Florida, but
in doing so neglects existing merchants.
"The state promotes itself to lure
out-of-state companies, but there's no
advertising for businesses already here,"
she said. "We promote the beaches and
Disney, but not the businesses."
The other priority identified by
Beck dovetails with findings from the
Florida Chamber's own Small Business
Index Survey, which consistently lists
access to capital and financing as

Sarasota moves toward synthetic drug ban


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
SARASOTA COUNTY- Sarasota
County took a big step Wednesday to-
ward the ban of synthetic drugs known
as "K2," "Spice" and "Kratom," after
commissioners unanimously approved
holding a public hearing in February
2014 to adopt a ban on designer drugs.
The ordinance would ban the
substances many mimicking the
look of marijuana outright in the
county. Mel Thomas, a planner with the
county's Health and Human Services
department, said Wednesday that the
American Association of Poison Control


is calling synthetic drug use a risk to the
public's health and a hazard to public
safety. Reports of the drugs first sur-
faced in the United States in 2008.
Thomas said a recent survey
showed that 21.7 percent of high
school students in the county have
used synthetic marijuana, a figure
that shows the accessibility to the
drugs. That's compared to 13 percent
statewide. The proposed ordinance by
Sarasota County focuses on violations
of product labeling and misbranding,
product marketing and packaging, and
product display.
"Hopefully we're going to see chang-
es within the county on some of these


numbers because they're very disturb-
ing," County Commissioner Christine
Robinson said.
Part of Wednesday's discussion
focused on a newer synthetic drug
called Kratom, a natural, herbal psycho-
tropic stimulant and opioid substitute.
Thomas said Kratom is highly addictive,
with symptoms ranging from dry mouth
to hallucinations. It has been banned
in the U.S. Army and Navy. Cathinones
- more commonly referred to as "bath
salts," which are from an emerging
family of drugs containing an amphet-
amine-like stimulant with effects similar

Littles, Bigs,



celebrate the season


Dozens of Littles in
the Big Brothers Big
Sisters of Charlotte
County and Englewood
had a treat Saturday as
the organization held its
annual Christmas Party
at Port Charlotte United
Methodist Church.
The children and
their families got to play
games, have a lunch
and treats, decorate
their own pancakes, sing
songs, meet with Santa
and take home lots of
presents and prizes.
The program cur-
rently has 175 children
matched with mentors
in Englewood, Port
Charlotte and Punta
Gorda, but 75 children
are waiting for a match.
There are several ways
volunteers can mentor a
child, including in-
school coaching.
Anyone interested
in volunteering as a
Big Brother or Sister
should contact Melissa
Nelson at 941-764-5812
or email mnelson@
bbbssun.org.

Report: Housekeeper stole from client


DEEP CREEK- A
woman hired to help
an 83-year-old man
with various duties -
including managing his
finances has been
accused of stealing more
than $11,000 from him.
Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office deputies
arrested Renee Rolston,
32, of the 1200 block of
Rio de Janeiro Boulevard
in Punta Gorda, after she
was questioned Monday
following a lengthy
investigation.
The victim, a Deep
Creek resident, called
authorities in September
to report Rolston had
defrauded him of
$11,315.02. He said he
hired her in April to
help with housekeeping,
caretaking and finance
management. She was
given permission to help
him write checks, the
victim told authorities,
but she was not allowed
to use his credit/ATM
card.
The report shows
Rolston used that card
numerous times without
consent between July
and September, during
which the victim spent
some time in the hospital
and rehab.


I POLICE BEAT
The information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff's office, Florida High way
Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is
determined by the court system.


Rolston was charged
with grand theft and
credit card fraud. She
was booked Monday at
the Charlotte County Jail
and released the same
day on $5,000 bond.

Millar won the final
two races Wednesday
to pull into a tie with
Leibel. The pair have
won seven of the eight
races so far. Starts have
been the key for him,
Millar said.
"Allan has had trouble
with his starts, but he's
getting better and bet-
ter," Millar said. 'Allan is
wickedly fast downwind.
He really moves well."
Leibel said an early
winter in his hometown
of Toronto has kept him
off the water in recent
months. He didn't com-
pete in the Americas Cup
in St. Petersburg earlier
this month, so he has
struggled with his timing
on starts.

Sheriff's Office assistant
general council Patrick
Duggan said synthetic

lead to dangerous and

drugs have on a person's

recent case in Sarasota,
it took five officers to
subdue a man who had
been smoking a mixture

good, and I have to get
better," Leibel said.
A wind shift overnight
pushed the racing farther
offshore than Tuesday's
near-shore course, but
steady winds between
10 and 13 knots out
of the east-southeast
provided plenty of
power for the one-person
keelboats.
"It's fantastic; we've
had eight races so far and

of synthetic marijuana
and formaldehyde.
"It's one more sub-
stance that an officer
has to worry about
when they're dealing
with an encounter with
a citizen," Duggan said.
"This is a cat-and-mouse
game with these people
making these substances.
They're able to tweak the
molecular structure of
the substances, and thus
take it outside of what is
banned. It's hard to fill in
the gaps of laws that cur-
rently exist to try and stop
this in the community."
The Sheriff's Office will
enforce the ordinance,
which typically will in-
volve a fine and be pun-
ished as a second-degree


in two wind directions
too," Millar said.

ROWING ISSUES
Sarasota County commissioners unanimously approved a contract with Enterprise Florida for $5 million that
will be used toward future improvements of the rowing facility at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota, site of
the 2017 World Rowing Championships.
While the vote was unanimous, several commissioners took issue with a clawbackk" clause in the contract.
The clause states the governor may request the funds'return if provisions of a letter from Suncoast Aquatic
Nature Center Associates, or SANCA which states that the park will generate in excess of $25 million in state
sales taxes between July 1, 2013, and Dec. 30, 2018 are not met.
SANCA will not spend the money on improvements, which include construction of a starting tower, docks
and wave attenuation devices, until a business plan that includes details about how the entire $5 million is
to be spent is presented to the commission on Jan. 15, 2014. The money covers all improvements that will be
made to the park between July 1 and June 30, 2014.
"This is an amazing project, and it's a project like none other,"County Commissioner Christine Robinson said.
"These little hiccups sometimes occur, and they get worked out instantly. This is one of those'."
SANCA president Paul Blackketter announced Wednesday that the Benderson facility has been awarded the
2018 NCAA Women's Rowing National Championships, the first time that event has ever been held in Florida.
The University of Central Florida in Orlando will be the host school.


drug ordinances have to
be passed.
"These things aren't just
sold in smoke shops ...
they're sold in convenience


stores that we go in every
day," Hines said. "If you see
these for sale there, turn
around and walk out and
encourage the community


not to shop there until
that stops, so we can pass
laws and also vote with our
pocketbooks."

PANHANDLING ORDINANCE UPDATE
Sarasota County commissioners voted 3-2 to authorize a public
hearing that will insert new language, including the description of
medians and road surfaces, in its rights of way ordinance that was
passed earlier this year.
Earlier this year, commissioners took a stand against panhandlers
by adopting an emergency ordinance pertaining to activities in county
rights of way. It's in response to a recent court ruling against the city
of Sarasota that involved the city's conduct of making arrests, issuing
citations and directing people holding signs, including panhandlers, to
move away from streets.
The ordinance addresses two concerns: It prohibits someone from
obstructing vehicles traveling in the right of way, and prevents an
exchange between a motorist and a person standing in the right of way
there can't be anything handed back and forth between the two.
The new language includes the description of medians, road surfaces
and sidewalks to further describe the areas within rights of way.
Also included is new language clarifying the prohibitions of the
activities within rights of way, and that no exchange can happen within
4 feet of a road.
Charitable organizations, such as firefighters who stand in medians
during "Fill the boot"drives, no longer would be able to conduct their
donation drives in medians, but a special exemption could be placed in
the final version of the ordinance concerning them.
"That could always change, but we've got to be concerned about
opening floodgates later," Commissioner Christine Robinson said about
organizations wanting to use medians for fundraising purposes. "It
could eliminate the original intent to keep people safe'."
The ordinance will cover the unincorporated areas of Sarasota
County. An ordinance in North Port allows for door-to-door solicitation,
but any solicitation that obstructs traffic is not allowed. Robinson
and Commission Chairwoman Carolyn Mason's "no"votes were more
of a vote against the process, which they think should include all the
cities, in what could lead to the formation of a uniform, countywide
ordinance.
The public hearing is scheduled for March 5,2014.

By IAN ROSS

ENGLEWOOD A
local cheer team was
one of the top teams in
the nation this week.
The Englewood Pee
Wee Wildcat Cheer

Little Scholars team,
came in seventh place
nationally at the ESPN
Wide World of Sports in
Orlando on Tuesday. The

Elementary School,
Vineland Elementary
School, Myakka River
Elementary School,


L.A. Ainger Middle
School, and the Student
Leadership Academy in
Venice.
Kim Pulaskie, the
head coach, said in an
email statement: "This
experience was one that
these young ladies will
certainly remember for
a lifetime. As young as
this Wildcat team is ... it
certainly isn't expected
to be their only trip to
nationals!"
The Wildcats took
second place Nov. 29 at
the regional Pop Warner
championships at ESPN
Disney World to earn
their shot at the national
championships.
The team consists of
Kaitlyn Tucker, Karo-
line Bellamy, Nicole


Pulaskie, Jenna Lyons,
Krista Leo, Emaly
Powers, Alice Lewis,
Alyssa Baker, Chloe
Smith, Chloe Lepean,
Farrah Bellingham, Abby

Rojas and Anna Barber.
Assistant coaches are
Alissa Weaver, Jennifer

Sarasota Military middle



school moves forward


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY
- Sarasota Military
Academy is on track to
open a middle school
in time for the 2014-
2015 school year after
county commissioners
unanimously approved
a rezoning and special
exception application
Wednesday for the
campus' site.
Two different parcels
- 2 acres zoned "open
use, rural" and 8.5
acres previously zoned
"industrial and rural"
- will now be home
to Sarasota Military
Academy Prep. The
charter school is slated
to open in August 2014
with about 425 students
in grades six through
eight at buildout, 725
students are planned
for. It will be located
at the intersection of
Fruitville Road and
Bethel Lane in Sarasota.
The Sarasota County
School Board approved
the school's charter in
mid-October.
County Planner Mark
Loveridge told commis-
sioners "adjacent neigh-
bors" including three
houses of worship -
sent letters supporting
the project. The county
Planning Commission
also recommended
approval.
SMA's high school
campus in Sarasota just
celebrated 12 years,
and Headmaster Dan
Kennedy told com-
missioners 97 percent
of SMA grads go on to
college.


"We're very excited
about the opportunity
for a middle school to be
a direct feeder into our
SMA program," he said,
adding older cadets will
serve as role models for
younger students.
Phase one of the
59,000-square-foot
project will include
24 classrooms, a library,
two transportation loops
- for buses and parent
pickup and parking.
"In the second phase
there will be another
12 (classrooms),"
Kennedy said. "We still
have to work on athletic
fields and lighting."
He said the cost
of phase 1 is about
$6.2 million.
County Commission
Chairwoman Carolyn
Mason a former SMA
board member asked
whether parking at
the school would be
sufficient.
Kennedy said the
amount of spaces slated
will be enough, since
middle school students
don't drive.
"We'll have 30 initial
staff when we open
in August 2014, and
we'll have 150 parking
spaces," he said.
Bo Medred, president
of Genesis Planning and
Development Inc. that's
involved with the proj-
ect, told commissioners
some of the surrounding
churches have agreed
their lots may be used
if there is a need for
overflow parking.
Commissioner Joe
Barbetta called the
school plans "fantastic"
and said SMA is an


example of how a great
charter school can
operate.
"I've known Dan
Kennedy for a while,
from when he was
principal at Sarasota
High School and when
they started (SMA),"
said Barbetta, who also
went to a military high
school. "He's done a
phenomenal job with
that, and now to have a
feeder school to the high
school ... means a great
deal."
Commissioner
Christine Robinson
called SMA "truly a
county school."
"The number of
students who commute
from South County is
absolutely incredible,"
she said. "It's a jewel. I'm
really looking forward
to what you do at the
middle school level."
Kennedy was pleased
with the commission's
approval.
"It's nice to have
a partnership with
the Board of County
Commissioners," he
said, "We are going to be
breaking ground in four
weeks, if not sooner."
New Head of School
Jodi Kopacz, formerly
one of SMA's assistant
headmasters, has been
at the school for eight
years and is looking
forward to taking the
helm at the new middle
school.
"We are getting a lot
of interest literally from
all over the county,"
she said, including
Englewood and North
Port.

I OUR VIEW

A sound plan

to get Springs

back on track

OUR POSITION: A fair and
open-minded approach to break-
ing the Warm Mineral Springs
deadlock.
We were encouraged
to see agreement this
week between the
Sarasota County Commission
and the city of North Port on a
plan of action for Warm Mineral
Springs.
First on Monday, North Port
city commissioners proposed
a multi-step process to get the
Springs open again as soon as
possible and to establish a future
course. Next on Tuesday, county
commissioners agreed, with the
addition of a deadline.
According to the new plan,
the two which jointly own
the Springs, the spa buildings
and 81 acres will advertise
for a management company to
take over operation as soon as
possible.
Some, no doubt, had expected
this could happen quickly;
city commissioners appeared
hopeful Monday.
However, state law requires
the county use a competitive
bidding process. It is expected to
take a month to advertise the bid
and another two months before
the contract is signed, officials
said. That's three months before
anyone can get back in the water.
That will seem ridiculous to
many citizens including us -
but it's typical for government
bureaucracy. We just hope this
will be put on the fastest track
possible. We also hope some-
one will step up to bid on the
short-term management; there's
no guarantee anyone will be
interested at this point.
County Commissioner
Christine Robinson also inserted
an end date for the contract -
Sept. 1, 2014 "so this is not
drawn out years and years on
end."
A very good idea. Given recent
history, there's reason to fear
the short-term arrangement will
become a longer-term arrange-
ment. Everyone wants to see the
Springs reopened. But more im-
portant, we need to proceed to
step two, the long-term contract
that should first stabilize and
then enhance the public asset.
County officials agreed with
their city counterparts offer to
begin the selection process for
long-term operation and possi-
ble development. The procedure
will be along the lines of one
previously drawn up by the city
administration, but later rejected
by the City Commission.
We believe this is the right
way to go. And a nod to City
Commissioner Linda Yates, who
tipped the vote toward the more-
open approach.
It's important to remember
the long-term bid process binds
neither board. Assuming bidders
do come forward and that
may be a big assumption each
board will be able to vote on
preferred bidders.
On Tuesday North Port
Mayor Jim Blucher said he
thought his board would rather
do an initial review, then vote
and pass the question to the
County Commission. Robinson
proposed that a joint meeting
be held later if the boards
disagreed.
It was a reasonable compro-
mise. We would have preferred
the decision come during a joint
meeting (with each board voting
separately during the meeting),
but this procedure seemed fair
enough. It may also prevent per-
sonality conflicts from gumming
up the works.
At this point, we have a
reasonable process and a
reasonable deadline for action. It
may not be what Warm Mineral
Springs users were hoping for,


but it's certainly a step in the
right direction.
For that, we and they can be
grateful.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR


Different rules
for pet dogs

Editor:
There is a great deal of con-
fusion regarding pets versus
service dogs. The Florida
Department of Business &
Professional Regulation states
that any restaurant, grocery
store, etc., must obtain a
permit from the local govern-
ment to allow dogs (pet) in
outdoor seating. At no time is
the "pet" allowed inside the
restaurant or grocery store.
Theresa, in her comments,
mentioned that some folks
attempt to pass off their pets
as service dogs to allow them
to enter areas they normally
would not be allowed. The
ADA defines a "service dog as
animals that are individually
trained to do work or perform
tasks for people with disabil-
ities." By law, they are not a
"pet" and are allowed to go
anywhere the disabled person
goes.
I have a service dog and
we have run into many other
dogs in stores that are not
trained, have no service dog
ID and behave poorly. They
jump, bark and snap at my
service dog. All service dogs
are trained not to respond
to this type of behavior, as
it distracts their attention
from the disabled owner. It
takes months and $25,000 to
$30,000 to train a service dog.
A pet therapy dog is a "pet"
and does not have the same
privileges of a service dog.
The intense training makes
the difference, therefore, I am
in agreement that pets must
abide by government ordi-
nance laws.

that clearly states the subsidy
to be somewhere north of
$1.5 million per year. Now
that $55,000 has been wasted,

Editor:
In reference to a story print-
ed about a car crashing into a
canal, the driver Nick Malagisi
had a major accident July of
this year losing the sight in
his right eye with decreased
cognitive skills. I, his father,
shared this info with police on
the scene, further letting them
know that I was bringing Nick
in for a CT scan due to the
history of Nick's injuries due
to the medical opinion of the
ER doctor who concluded
that Nick most likely suffered
from a seizure resulting in
prescribing medication for
this condition and a follow-up
with his neuro doctor.


My concerns were that the
story was written as though
his current med condition
was set aside and focused on
a reckless driving incident,
jumping the gun as you will.
However it can't be taken back
that Nick Malagisi was labeled
as consciously driving reck-
lessly as he has been driving
for 5 years without one ticket.
We were concerned about
Nick behind a wheel, and
being that he did not suffer
a seizure for the first three
months following his July
accident all involved in his
care shared the opinion that
Nick should be OK to drive.

but poorly thought-out
program that is forced upon

end will cost everyone and

poor turnout for the annual
Parkside event should be a
telling picture of what most
people think of the project.
The best summary statement
for this project might be, "You
cannot make a silk purse out
of a sow's ear."
I, like most voters, was of
the impression that the lim-
ited county funds for beau-
tification would go to things
like finishing the medians and
side-road landscaping from
the 41 bridge to Murdock.
Compared to Punta Gorda,
41 north of the bridge looks
like a Third World country
in too many places. Why has
this needed effort not been
completed?
Hopefully some common
sense will enlighten Ms. Duffy
and the other county commis-
sioners as to what the voters
really want them to spend our
tax money on.

Wants trash
container back

Editor:
My wife used a black, pea-
nut-shaped container for our
yard trash. It was easy for her
to handle while dragging it
around the yard while trim-
ming the bushes and trees.
I drilled small holes in the
bottom for water to drain
out. We used this old, water
flower-garden container for
years. It made it easier on our
backs to use such a container,
as we are both physically
handicapped.
A truck came by one
Monday night and took our
container yard trash and
all. We are asking for its return
to our yard.

Sanity prevails:


Tea party no longer terrifies


R ep. Steve Stock-
man's moment as
a viable Senate
candidate lasted exactly
13 hours 47 minutes.
At 7 p.m. Monday,
the far-right Stockman,
R-Toxicity, announced
via the right-wing
websiteWND that he
would challenge incum-
bent John Cornyn in the
Texas Republican Senate
primary. And for a brief
period, it appeared that
Stockman could pose a
credible threat; his de-
cision was immediately
praised by the Tea Party
Patriots and the Senate
Conservatives Fund,
founded by the Heritage
Foundation's Jim DeMint.
But then something
unexpected happened:
Sanity prevailed.
The Club for Growth,
which started the trend
of conservative primary
challenges to incumbent
Republicans, issued a
statement just before
9 a.m. Tuesday saying
that it was not on board
with Stockman, the
flamboyant lawmaker
who distributed articles
of impeachment against
President Obama this fall


and who tweets messag-
es such as "Obamacare
is less popular than
chlamydia."
"While Congressman
Stockman has a
pro-economic growth
record, so does Senator
Cornyn, as witnessed by
his 87 percent lifetime
Club for Growth score,"
the group said, adding
that "we do not expect to
be involved in the Texas
Senate race."
Matt Lewis, a highly
regarded conservative
writer with The Daily
Caller, pronounced
Stockman doomed.
Conservatives were "in
danger of throwing some
babies out with the bath
water," Lewis said, and
he praised the Club for
Growth's restraint in
Texas as "leadership by
example."


It was one of
many signs that the
tea-party-driven purge
of the GOP has begun to
subside. Conservative
activists still dominate
the party and its pro-
cesses, but their reign
of terror may be easing.
Consider:
Rep. Paul Ryan, a
darling of the Republican
conservative base and a
likely 2016 presidential
candidate, just reached
a budget agreement with
Democrats that would al-
low a modest increase in
spending. Even the hint
of a spending increase
was enough to produce
howls from Heritage
Action this week before
the deal was announced.
The group, influential
among activists and
GOP lawmakers, issued
a statement Monday
that it "cannot support a
budget deal that would
increase spending in the
near-term for promises
of woefully inadequate
long-term reductions."
The agreement is
nothing for either side
to celebrate: Raising
revenue through fees
and gimmicks, it does


nothing about the prob-
lems with entitlement
programs, it doesn't
reform the tax code
and it doesn't even fully
replace the automatic
"sequestration" spending
cuts. But what's note-
worthy is that the threats
from conservatives didn't
deter Ryan.
At the same time,
Senate Republicans are
stepping up their efforts
to help each other beat
back primary challenges.
The National Republican
Senatorial Committee is
going to battle against
the Club for Growth
and other conservative
groups over a primary
challenge to veteran
Sen. Thad Cochran of
Mississippi. Roll Call
reported that Senate
Minority Leader Mitch
McConnell, who has
a primary challenger
in Kentucky backed
by some of the same
groups, is holding a
fundraiser this week for
Cochran. (Historically,
the committee has
saved its money for
general-election battles.)
Concern is also
spreading on the right


that House Speaker
John Boehner of Ohio is
planning to defy the tea
party set on immigration
reform. Reports in con-
servative media outlets
say that the speaker is
planning to hold off
on immigration votes
until after primary filing
deadlines have passed.
That way, lawmakers
needn't fear a challenge
from somebody criticiz-
ing a vote for "amnesty."
A Boehner spokesman
called the reports
rumor, but some GOP
lawmakers are hoping
the speaker pursues just
such a strategy.
Stockman, the would-
be senator, must have
thought he had gamed
the system just right
when he entered the
primary battle against
Cornyn on the last
possible day. He seems
to have calculated that
his extreme views would
automatically make him
a contender, but it hasn't
turned out that way.
Nobody can
out-conservative
Stockman. The former
street vagrant, on his
second tour in Congress,


has been known for
inviting Ted Nugent to
the State of the Union
speech, for opposing
Boehner's re-election as
House speaker (because
of "betrayal of conserva-
tive principle") and for
his bumper sticker an-
nouncing, "If babies had
guns they wouldn't be
aborted." He launched
his campaign Monday by
criticizing the "liberal"
Cornyn because the
incumbent didn't wholly
support Texas Sen. Ted
Cruz's brinkmanship
over Obamacare.
But Cornyn, a former
Texas attorney general,
is no liberal; he notes
with pride that National
Journal ranked him
the second-most con-
servative senator last
year. The difference
between incumbent and
challenger is character:
Cornyn has it, Stockman
is one. That the Club for
Growth can recognize
the difference is reason
for hope.

Scott on jobs: A for effort, C- for performance


Good news! The
economy is im-
proving.
Nationally, a strong
jobs report showed
203,000 jobs added
in November and a
.3 of one percent drop
in unemployment to
7 percent. The stock
market has reached an
all-time high, with the
Dow Jones Industrial
Average at more than
16,000.
Likewise, in the
state of Florida there's
more good news. More
private-sector jobs have
been added each month
and unemployment has
dropped to 6.7 percent.
All Americans should
be pleased with the
signs of a consistently
improving economy.
Interestingly though,
depending on one's po-
litical leanings and party
affiliation, there's a game
of credit-seeking and
blame-affixing going on.
One needs to suspend
reality to fully compre-
hend the arguments.
For example: How
is it possible to decry
President Barack
Obama, a Democrat,
and his handling of the
economy while praising
Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a
Republican, or vice versa,
when the numbers are
tracking pretty closely?
Sadly, the answer is
that it's all about winning
the next election.
Let's look at what's
happening in Florida.
Gov. Scott campaigned
in 2010, at the height
of the recession, on the
single issue of creating
jobs. He promised
to add 700,000 jobs
in seven years on


top of the 1 million
jobs estimated by the
Florida Legislature's
Office of Economic and
Demographic Research.
To his credit, Scott
spends the majority of
his time trying to fulfill
this promise. He has
been on more than a
dozen trade missions.
He makes cold calls to
businesses large and
small. He invites busi-
nesses in states with
Democratic governors to
leave their current state
and come to Florida. He
attends ribbon-cuttings
and groundbreaking on
an almost daily basis,
believing none is too
small to tout. He goes
on TV and radio, espe-
cially friendly media, to
extol the virtues of doing
business in Florida. He
uses our tax dollars, a
lot of them, to entice
businesses to move or
expand.
One cannot fault him
for not trying. But one
can, and should, ask, "Are
these efforts effective?"
This governor insists
on accountability. He is
bullish on measurable
outcomes and the use of
assessment tools. In fact,
he enthusiastically sup-

accountability in mea-
suring his campaign
promise of creating
1.7 million jobs in seven
years, especially since he
has used a sizable sum
of taxpayer dollars -
$266 million so far to
do so.
The challenge in
measuring these out-
comes is twofold: It is
difficult to obtain or trust
the numbers coming
from the responsible
agencies, and it is almost
impossible to identify
the determining factor in
creating the jobs.
The Miami Herald, in
conjunction with the
Tampa Bay Times, con-
ducted a comprehensive
six-month review of Gov.
Scott's job record.
Among their findings:
406,000 private-sector
jobs have been created
since January 2011, when
Gov. Scott took office.
*A loss of 49,163 jobs
at companies with more
than 100 employees.
The loss of 37,736 jobs
at companies with fewer
than nine employees.
More than 5,300 of
the lost jobs came
from manufacturing
industries.
While it's difficult to
determine definitively
who to credit for the
private-sector job gains
and losses, it's fair to
say the governor and
Legislature are partially
responsible through their
actions and policies.


It would also be
reasonable to credit
others: the president
and Congress, local
governments, consumer
spending and demand,
banks and investors,
big businesses, entre-
preneurs, small mom
and pop businesses,
chambers of commerce,
economic development
councils and our educa-
tional institutions.
The newspapers were
able to draw a more
direct correlation to the
jobs that were tied to the
governor's efforts involv-
ing incentives. Gov. Scott
and his Department of
Economic Opportunity
initiated 342 deals prom-
ising 45,258 jobs using

j'-l/iP btthy&i Fkti


$266 million in taxpay-
er-funded incentives. So
far, 46 of these deals have
collapsed and 96 percent
of the promised jobs
have yet to materialize.
I've long been a critic of
using tax dollars for this
purpose, believing that
there was little record of
success or accountabil-
ity. These numbers lend
credence to my fears.
So when the press
releases go out, the
ribbon-cuttings and
groundbreaking are
held and the announce-
ments are made, one has
to ask, are the governor
and his team directly
responsible for creating
real jobs or are they just
seizing on a really good


taxpayer-funded PR
opportunity?
We all want the
governor to be successful
at fostering a job-rich
Florida, but we expect
him to be honest with
us on the status of these
deals and accountable
for the millions of our tax
dollars that he is throw-
ing at them.
The governor gets an A
for effort, but a C- based
on the performance
of his Department of
Economic Opportunity.

Open house for art in Englewood


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD Carroll
Swayze's art hangs in more
than 40 galleries and is in
private collections world-
wide, but she also wants to
share her art locally.
Swayze invites the public
Saturday to her studio in
Englewood for her free 26th
Annual Studio Party and
Open House. This year will
include what she hopes
will be the inaugural soup
cook-off competition with
prizes for the best-tasting
soups. After the judging,
she said, "Everyone can sit
down and eat the soup."
Also, along with
Swayze's works, glassblow-
er Rich Fizer will include
his works for what Swayze
describes as a "lighted
glass extravaganza."
Years ago, before her
open house, Swayze said
she was at an Englewood
Elementary School Spring
Fling fundraiser where she


donated her work to be
auctioned off. Swayze said
she overheard a conversa-
tion where a bidder said
she really wanted one of
Swayze's work but couldn't
afford it if the bidding went
any higher.
"It was almost heart-
breaking that people in
town couldn't afford my
work anymore," Swayze
said. "That was the first
year I had the party and
a sale. For me, it gives
anyone who comes an
opportunity to buy my
work or to just come to
check out my studio."
This year, Swayze will
have a jar from which peo-
ple can draw 20 percent

to 50 percent discounts
for those who want to
purchase her work.
Swayze also will be
sharing an evolving shift in
her artistic style, resulting
from her recent stay at the
historic Hermitage House
Artist Retreat on Manasota
Key.
"I was sitting on the
beach, writing, sketching
and watching tourists,"
Swayze said. She described
herself at the "beginning
edge" of a new direction in
her work.
"I am playing for the first
time in a long time and
it's really exciting and it's
really fun," she said.
She calls the series

they're going to have to
shut their doors."
Bill Gunnin, who heads
up the North Port Area
Chamber, said more
incentives are needed to
stimulate local businesses,
adding that the labyrinth
of regulations also serves
as an obstacle to growth.
He called for the state
to limit or eliminate over-
reaching regulations that
stifle business start-ups or
expansion. In North Port,
for example, standards for
commercial signs cover

The style itself is a

"The No. 1 complaint
I hear is about the sign
ordinance," he said. "So
many merchants rely on
their signs to promote
their business. It's frus-

The vast number and
complexity of regulations

for business owners from

direction has her painting

watered down acrylics on
paper. The blending of
colors on canvas can be
more challenging than

and owner of Thomberry
Custom Builders.
One instance of costly
government regulation,
he said, is the state
requirement for workers
compensation insurance,
which costs him almost
$5,000 a year just to
employ one carpenter.
"Workman's compensa-
tion has gotten complete-
ly out of control," he said.
Moreover, some compa-
nies choose to ignore this
mandate or pay workers
under the table, allowing
them to gain an unfair

system of the home that
was burglarized was not
being monitored by law
enforcement, the report
adds.
Meanwhile, the
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement was
processing the blood and
hair found at the crime
scene and they matched
it to Ivanenko in mid-No-
vember, using existing
DNA samples they had
on file for him.
Charlotte County
investigators then
discovered that Ivanenko
had been charged and
found guilty of a North
Port home burglary in
2009, and questioned
him about the South Gulf
Cove incidents.
Ivanenko admitted
he was working in the
area for a construction
company at the time
of the burglaries, but

advantage by underbid-
ding for jobs, he said.
In addition, some rules
passed locally are unnec-
essary because they are
already covered by state
regulations, Thornberry
said.
"There are duplicate
regulations at the state and
local level," he said. "The
state should put more
pressure on local gov-
ernment to get rid of the

guidelines already being

denied any knowledge of
the crimes. Authorities
continued to develop
their case and eventually
issued a warrant for his
arrest, which was served
by the North Port Police
Department on Dec. 3.
Ivanenko was trans-
ferred to the Charlotte
County Jail on Dec. 4,
where he remains on
$60,000 bond. CCSO
spokeswoman Debbi
Bowe said more charges
could be pending.
Ivanenko was pre-
viously charged with
criminal traffic offenses
and disorderly conduct
in both Charlotte and
Sarasota counties
dating to 2007. The 2009
burglary case from North
Port has been reopened,
according to Sarasota

records.

Silent lie: Interpreter fakes it


Bogus sign language exhibited at Mandela service

JOHANNESBURG -The
sign-language interpreter on
stage at Nelson Mandela's glob- ...
ally broadcast memorial service ...
was a faker who was waving his
arms around meaninglessly,
advocates for the deaf said
Wednesday.
The allegation raised
questions of how and why he
managed to insert himself into
a supposedly secure event
attended by scores of heads of
state, including United States
President Barack Obama.
As one world leader after
another took the stage in a
gigantic soccer stadium to pay
homage to Mandela, the man at

peared to interpret for the deaf
at the hours' long memorial
so the world's deaf population

Key support for budget deal;


deficits would rise


WASHINGTON (AP) -
A newly minted budget
deal to avert future
government shutdowns
gained important ground
Wednesday among
House Republicans who
are more accustomed
to brinkmanship than
compromise, even
though it would nudge
federal deficits higher
three years in a row.
There was grumbling
from opposite ends of
the political spectrum -
conservatives complain-
ing about spending levels
and liberal Democrats
unhappy there would
be no extension of an
expiring program of
benefits for the long-
term unemployed.
Yet other lawmakers,
buffeted by criticism af-
ter last October's partial
government shutdown,
found plenty to like
in the agreement and
suggested it could lead
to future cooperation.
The plan was announced
Tuesday evening by
Sen. Patty Murray,

Ryan, R-Wis., and quickly

'12 Years a Slave' tops SAG nominations


LOS ANGELES (AP)
- Steve McQueen's
historic saga "12 Years
a Slave" topped the
nominations list for
the 20th annual Screen
Actors Guild Awards
Wednesday, cementing
it as a solid Academy
Awards prospect with
four nominations.
John Wells' dysfunc-
tional family adaptation
'August: Osage County,"
which hits theaters
Dec. 25 and features an
all-star cast including
Meryl Streep and Julia
Roberts, also picked
up awards-season
momentum with three
nominations, including
outstanding performance
for the cast.
The SAG nominations
are one of Hollywood's
first major announce-
ments on the long road
to the March 2 Oscars.
Also key are the Golden
Globe nominations,
which will be revealed
Thursday morning.
Noticeably absent from


Vallee's AIDS drama
"Dallas Buyers Club"
and the sweepingWhite
House servant tale "Lee
Daniels' The Butler." Both
films topped the list with
three nominations each.
Also nominated
for cast performance
was David 0. Russell's
1970s con-artist romp
'American Hustle."
And the film scored an
individual supporting

the film's lead actor,
Michael B. Jordan.
Joining the SAG list for
outstanding cast perfor-
mance were Jean-Marc

In addition to its cast
honors, "12 Years a
Slave" attained individ-

Study: Diet changes gut bacteria in a day


SAN FRANCISCO
(Bloomberg) -A change in
diet quickly alters the types
of bacteria living in the
human gut, a finding that
suggests this rapid adapt-
ability to different foods can
be used to control illnesses
tied to stomach microbes,
researchers said.
Switching to an ani-
mal-based diet increased
the number of microorgan-
isms that process protein,
while a plant-based diet
increased the number of
bacteria that help process
starch and cellulose,
according to a study led
by Harvard University
researchers published
Wednesday in the journal
Nature. The change in
the bacteria populations


occurred within a day.
Trillions of microorgan-
isms live in the human gut,
helping to digest food, fight
disease-causing germs and
process nutrients. Research
has suggested that diets
high in fat and sugar may
change the human gut's
bugs, perhaps contributing
to chronic illness, the study
authors wrote. Previous
work in mice suggested
that the microbiome
could change within a day,
though until now, the effect
hadn't been replicated in
humans.
"It's exciting and
gratifying to find out this
holds up in people," said
Lawrence David, who
was one of the Harvard
researchers and is now an


assistant professor at Duke
University's Molecular
Genetics & Microbiology
and Institute for Genome
Sciences & Policy. "We're
getting an increasing
appreciation of how
flexible and responsive the
microbiome is, even on a
very short time scale."
Humans are home to
more than 10,000 species
of microbes, mostly
bacteria that live in healthy
symbiosis, according to
the Human Microbiome
Project. The trillions of
microorganisms that live in
and on the body outnum-
ber human cells by 10 to
1, according to research
published in 2012 in Nature
and the Public Library of
Science journals.


Scientists are just begin-
ning to explore the compo-
sition of these ecosystems,
said David. Knowing how
these organisms interact
with their host can reveal
more about illnesses such
as inflammatory bowel
disease and obesity.
The 11 people studied
were allowed to eat as they
normally did for four days,
writing down what they
ate and submitting fecal
samples to the researchers.
Then they consumed what
was provided to them by
researchers for four days,
and were watched for
six days afterward. That
meant that each person
essentially served as their
own control group, David
said.

Geminid meteor
shower ramps up
tonight

CAPE CANAVERAL
(AP) It's time for the
December sky show.
The annual Geminids
meteor shower the
most intense of the year
- will peak Friday night.
But the best viewing may
be early Saturday, once
the moon sets. Between
100 and 120 meteors are
expected every hour at
peak time. But scientists
say the bright moon will
interfere and reduce the
number of visible me-
teors by half. That's why
the best shot for viewing
will be closer to dawn on
Saturday.
The Geminids come
from a small asteroid
named 3200 Phaethon,
which passes quite close
to the sun. Its trail of
dust and debris is what

AP-GfK poll:
Public admiration
of Obama drops

WASHINGTON (AP) -
Americans' perceptions of
President Barack Obama
are falling not only on his
handling of the economy
and other big issues, but
also on more personal
qualities such as honesty,
a poll finds.
A clear majority of
adults, 56 percent,
say "honest" does not
describe Obama well, ac-
cording to The Associated
Press-GfK poll. That's
worse than his 52 percent
rating in an October poll.
The latest poll finds
41 percent think the
president is decisive,
44 percent see him as
strong and 45 percent call
him inspiring.
Republicans pound-
ed Obama this fall
for repeatedly saying
Americans could keep
their existing insurance
plans under his new
health law. That turned
out to be untrue in many
cases, and Republicans
said it proved Obama
can't be trusted.

Floridians lead enrollment in federal marketplace


FORT LAUDERDALE
(AP) More Floridians
are signing up for the new
federal health insurance
program than residents in
any other state relying on
the federal exchange, with
nearly 18,000 registering
over the last two months,
according to figures
released Wednesday.
Nearly 14,500
Floridians signed up
under the Affordable Care
Act in November. That
compares to about 11,000
in Texas another pop-
ulous state that's using
the federal government's
website, according to
enrollment statistics from
the Health and Human
Services Department
Florida's November
enrollment figures are


considerably higher
than the dismal 3,500
in October when sign-
ups were hampered by
technical glitches with
healthcare.gov. But it's
still far less than what
officials had originally
projected for Florida and
nationwide.
Wednesday's enroll-
ment statistics showed
that 364,682 people
nationwide have signed
up for private coverage
as of Nov. 30. That figure
is less than one-third of
the 1.2 million people
officials had originally
projected would enroll
nationwide by the end of
November. Federal health
officials said during a
conference call with the
media Tuesday night that


they expect the numbers
to grow in the coming
months, with a likely
surge close to the March
enrollment deadline.
The Obama admin-
istration projected
7 million consumers
would sign up for cover-
age during the first year,
including about 477,000
in Florida.
Experts have been
working around the
clock to fix the troubled
website, and federal
health officials have said
the site is now working
for the vast majority of
users.
Jodi Ray, who oversees
the navigators for the
University of South
Florida, recently sat
down with a family and


completed one applica-
tion through the website
and another for the chil-
dren's Medicaid program
in less than an hour.
"It worked that fast. It
was that easy," she said.
Since the site launched
at the beginning of
October, 281,517
Floridians have taken the
first step in applying for
coverage and 75,480 are
eligible for a subsidy to
help pay for it, according
to federal health officials.
But the enrollment data
was not broken down
into detailed demograph-
ic information. Ray said
Florida applicants don't
fit a particular profile, so
far.
"They're not necessarily
the sickly. They're not


necessarily the poor.
They're not necessarily
the white or Hispanic.
They are a whole range of
demographics," she said.
The Obama adminis-
tration and insurers are
working desperately to
target healthy, young
adults as they need them
to enroll in the market-
place to offset the costs
of paying for older, sicker
consumers.
The federal health
law is facing several
hurdles in the wake of the
botched website rollout.
The administration must
find a way to lure frustrat-
ed consumers back to the
improved website, which
now includes a reset
button so consumers
can start their bungled


applications from scratch.
Federal health officials
are also giving priority to
those who visited the site
in the past two months,
but couldn't complete
their application because
of technical problems.
Many consumers are re-
ceiving an email inviting
them back to the site and
the response has been
strong, said Julie Bataille,
communications direc-
tor for the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services.
But many navigators
fear it will be difficult
to complete the enroll-
ment process before the
Dec. 23 deadline, which
allow consumers to start
getting health coverage in
January.

USDA predicts
smaller citrus crop
in Florida

WINTER HAVEN (AP)
- As many Florida citrus
growers have feared, the
smallest orange crop in
24 years will get smaller
as pre-harvest fruit drop
continues to plague
groves.
The Lakeland
Ledger reports that the
U.S. Department of
Agriculture on Tuesday
shaved 4 million orange
boxes or 3 percent -
off the projected 2013-14
orange harvest.
This was the first
monthly update since
its initial Nov. 8 forecast.
The new estimate is
121 million boxes.
"It's startling they took
that many boxes off
that quickly," said Marty
McKenna, a Lake Wales-
based grower and chair-
man of the Florida Citrus


Commission. "We're
having a rude awakening
to the effects of citrus
greening."
Greening is a bacterial
disease that weakens a
citrus tree and eventually
kills it. Greening first sur-
faced near Homestead in
2005 and spread quickly
throughout the citrus
growing region.
Growers and scientists
say they think most of the
state's 69 million citrus
trees are infected, with
some estimates as high as
75 percent.

Biologist

he cleaned its cage.
Joe Wasilewski

intensive care unit after
the Nov. 20 bite from
a 4-foot-long Eastern
diamondback rattlesnake.
Wasilewski tells The
Miami Herald that he's
been bitten by cobras,
cottonmouths and other
rattlesnakes, but this was
the worst bite yet. He says
it's been a tough recovery
and he's "just starting to
feel normal now."

Historic central
Fla. house moved
via barge
WINTER PARK (AP) -
A historic house in Winter
Park is on its way to its
new location after being
cut in half and moved on
a floating barge across a
lake to museum less than
a half mile away.
Half of the historic
Capen-Showalter House
moved to the grounds
of the The Albin Polasek
Museum & Garden on
Tuesday. The rest of the


house will be moved later
this month.
The house was built
in 1885 by a founder of
Winter Park, the tiny city
outside of Orlando. The
owners of the house had
planned to demolish it
until preservationists
raised objections.
Preservationists raised
$650,000 for the move
which required the house
to be cut in half, hauled
down a hill in a flatbed
truck and then placed on
the barge.
Gov. Scott and
Cabinet boost pay
for 2 agency heads
TALLAHASSEE (AP)-
Two top state officials are
getting a sizable boost in
their paychecks.
Gov. Rick Scott and
members of the Cabinet
voted Tuesday to give a
$33,500 pay raise to Ben
Watkins, the head of
Florida's Division of Bond


Finance. He currently
earns $150,000 and has
not gotten a raise in seven
years.
Scott and two other
Cabinet members also
voted to reaffirm the
appointment of Ash
Williams, the executive
director of the State
Board of Administration.
As part of that decision
Williams is getting a
$42,500 pay raise that
brings his annual salary
to $367,500. Williams has
not gotten a raise since he
took his position in 2008.
Scott and Cabinet
members said the hikes
were in recognition of
outstanding performance.

2 Spanish replica

The replicas of the Nao
Victoria and El Galeon

The original Nao
Victoria was the first
ship to successfully cir-

It was part of a Spanish
expedition commanded
by Portuguese explorer
Ferdinand Magellan,
who died during the
voyage. The replica built
in 1992 arrives Dec. 23
and will remain in St.
Augustine through
Jan. 10.
El Galeon is a 171-foot-
long replica Spanish
galleon. It will be in the
city from Jan. 4 through
July 10.

Cat gets head
caught in dog
food can
YUMA, Ariz. (AP)
It wasn't the kind
of rescue Yuma fire-
fighters usually handle.
This one involved a cat
with its head stuck in a
dog food can.
Yuma Fire
Department
spokesman Mike
Erfert says the cat was
brought to Fire Station
No. 4 by two women
who found the cat in
the street.
Phoenix TV station
KNXV says the women
told fire crews the cat
was walking blindly
and was nearly hit by
a car.
They picked it up and
brought it to the fire

Earnings deflate US stocks


NEWYORK (AP) -The
stock market fell the most
in more than a month as
investors assessed weak
earnings reports from
several U.S. companies.
Health care stocks
had some of the biggest
declines. Laboratory
Corporation of America
slumped after cutting its
full-year earnings fore-
cast. Quest Diagnostics,
a major competitor, also
dropped.
The broader stock mar-
ket also fell. The Standard
& Poor's 500 index has
fallen six out of eight days
in December, leaving it
down 1.3 percent for the
month.
The market may be
succumbing to "buyer's
fatigue" after a big
rally this year, said Chris
Bertelsen, chief invest-
ment officer at Global


Financial Private Capital.
The S&P 500 has surged
25 percent so far in 2013,
putting it on track for its
biggest annual increase
in a decade.
Another sign that
investors' optimism on
stocks may be flagging
was a sharp drop in the
Russell 2000, an index of
small-company stocks.
The index, which has
surged 30 percent this
year, leading the gains
for major indexes, fell 1.6
percent Wednesday, the
most in a month.
Investors also con-
sidered the impact of
the latest budget deal
in Washington, which
will avert the immedi-
ate threat of another
shutdown of the federal
government. The 16-day
shutdown in October
crimped economic


growth and hurt consum-
er confidence.
In the long run, the
deal should be good for
the stock market because
it will allow investors to
focus on the economy
and the outlook for
corporations rather than
having to worry about
politics, said Peter Sidoti,
a former Wall Street
analyst who now runs a
company that focuses on
analyzing small-company
stocks.
The S&P 500 index
fell 20.40 points, or
1.2 percent, to 1,782.22. It
was the biggest slump for
the index since Nov. 7.
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average dropped
129.60 points, or
0.8 percent, to 15,843.53.
The Nasdaq composite
fell 56.68 points, or
1.4 percent, to 4,003.81.

Amazon expands
grocery delivery to
3rd city, Frisco

SEATTLE (Seattle
Times) -Amazon.com
Inc. has begun dropping
off food and other small
items at doorsteps in San
Francisco, its third city as
it continues to look for
ways to speed up delivery
of the products it sells.
The company rolled
out AmazonFresh there
Wednesday, five months
after debuting the service
in Los Angeles. The com-
pany expanded into those
cities only after testing its
grocery delivery service
in Seattle for nearly six
years. And rumors persist
that Amazon is consider-
ing launching Fresh in the
New York metropolitan
area soon.
The service helps
Amazon move a step clos-
er toward giving custom-
ers same-day delivery of


the products it sells. That
remains the biggest ad-
vantage brick-and-mortar
rivals hold over the online
giant, which can offer
customers the sort of
instant gratification that
Amazon simply can't
match. It's the reason why
Amazon has been rapidly
expanding the number of
warehouses it operates,
and why it cut a deal with
the U.S. Postal Service to
deliver goods on Sunday.
The company high-
lighted shipping speed
in announcing the move
into San Francisco.
"Place an order by
10 a.m. and get items
by dinner, or order by
10 p.m. and get items by
breakfast," the company
said in a statement.

Xbox One sales
hit 2 million

SEATTLE (Bloomberg)
- Microsoft says sales
of the new Xbox One


video-game console
reached more than
2 million in its first 18
days on the market, as
the company vies to keep
pace with Sony Corp.'s
PlayStation 4 during the
holiday season.
Sony said on
Dec. 3 that it had
sold 2.1 million of its
machines since they
went on sale Nov. 15
in North America.
Microsoft, which in-
troduced Xbox One on
Nov. 22 in 13 countries,
is selling pretty much
every console it can
get into stores and has
"aggressive" plans to
restock, said David
Dennis, a spokesman
for Xbox, in an inter-
view this week.
"Sales of both plat-
forms are basically on
par with each other,"
said Colin Sebastian,
an analyst at Robert
W Baird & Co. in San
Francisco.


7 money stumbles to avoid


E everyone makes a a
money mistakes. UW summP
But missteps or
miscalculations can cost R UlOP t$U


you a lot over the long
term and could inadver-
tently hurt your family
when you're gone.
Consumer Reports
offers seven ways to
correct your missteps
or at least mitigate the
damage they can cause.
1. Not updating
your beneficiaries.
In Consumer Reports'
recent nationally repre-
sentative survey about
Americans' money
habits, 86 percent of
respondents said they
hadn't created their will
and other estate-plan-
ning documents or
updated them within
the past five years. Even
if nothing has changed
in your life, every year
you should check your
beneficiary designations
in your will, insurance
policies, investment
accounts and retirement
plans such as 401(k)s.
2. Withholding infor-
mation from family.
The survey showed that
in only 40 percent of
households did both
spouses know where
to find details of their
financial accounts,
required passwords and
keys to safe-deposit
boxes. An easy solution
is to designate a safe,
file cabinet or safe-de-
posit box to hold all
important documents
and account-access
information.
Communication
between generations
can also reduce hassles
and misunderstandings.
Yet just 37 percent of
respondents with adult
children said they'd told
their kids where to find
important documents,
accounts and passwords.
Adult children stand a
better chance of gaining


their parents' trust and
helping them make
plans if they get their
own financial houses in
order first.
3. Botching your
401(k). In interviews
with Consumer Reports
subscribers who've been
successful savers and
investors, a common
refrain was to start sav-
ing early in life, invest
consistently and put the
maximum allowed into
a retirement plan. But in
the survey, two-fifths of
respondents with 401(k)
and similar retirement
plans said they were
investing 6 percent or
less of their income, the
typical ceiling for getting
a full employer match.
Notably, a large
percentage of survey
respondents mentioned
costly investment errors,
such as buying or selling
at the wrong time.
Investing at regular in-
tervals and holding over
the long term is the most
surefire way to avoid
those mistakes and build
wealth in a relatively
risk-free way.
4. Underinsuring your
home and your life.
Only 36 percent of the
homeowners surveyed
said they'd purchased re-
placement-cost coverage,
a more expensive home-
owners insurance that
provides replacement of
your home with like-kind
and quality materials.
And only 20 percent
have umbrella coverage
against liability claims.
Two other coverages
that should not be
overlooked are life and
disability insurance.
Term life insurance is
more economical than
other types. Use an


online broker such as
Accuquote, SelectQuote,
Find My Insurance or
Lifelnsure.com to com-
pare premium quotes.
5. Not preparing
for emergencies.
Most Americans
don't save even half a
year's worth of living
expenses. Saving a bit
at a time say, $20 a
week- can help build
your cash buffer. That
money should go into
an accessible bank or
credit-union savings
account.
6. Ignoring your
credit report.
Consumers can obtain
a credit report from
each of the three
major credit bureaus
- Equifax, Experian
and TransUnion free
through the industry's
official website, at
annualcreditreport.
com. To most efficiently
monitor your credit,
Consumer Reports
recommends staggering
your report requests to
one every four months.
7. Mismanaging debt.
Credit cards generate
among the most expen-
sive type of consumer
debt; the average
interest rate is about
14.3 percent, according
to LowCards.com, a
credit card comparison
website. In spite of those
lofty costs, almost half of
the survey respondents
with credit cards said
they carry a balance on
their cards.
To begin to free your-
self from that balance,
consider consolidat-
ing your debt with a
home-equity line of
credit; rates on HELOCs
average between 4 and
5 percent, according to
Bankrate.com. Focus
on retiring your debt
by paying more than
the minimum due each
month.

India's Supreme
Court upholds
anti-gay sex law

NEW DELHI (AP)-
India's Supreme Court
struck down a 2009
lower court decision to
decriminalize homosex-
ual conduct, dealing a
blow Wednesday to gay
activists who have fought
for years for the chance
to live openly in India's
deeply conservative
society.
The judges said only
lawmakers and not the
courts could change a
colonial-era law that bans
homosexual acts and
makes them punishable
by up to a decade in
prison.
The lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender
community across India
reacted to the surprise
decision with defiance.

Winter in Lebanon
brings misery for
Syrian refugees
MINIEH, Lebanon
(Washington Post) -The
United Nations said
Wednesday that it is
"extremely concerned"
for the plight of Syria's
refugees, as snow and
freezing temperatures
descended on the region.
Syria and the coun-
tries that border it have
been bracing for what is
expected to be the worst
winter storm in years.
Snows hit Lebanon,
Turkey and northern Syria
overnight on Tuesday,
with sharp winds and
cold, heavy rains batter-
ing areas closer to sea
level, causing misery for
hundreds of thousands
in camps and makeshift
shanties.

Robot smart
enough to pass
college test
TOKYO (The Yomiuri
Shimbun) -An artificial
intelligence robot that
recently took mock exam-
inations of the National
Center Test for University
Admissions would have a
strong chance of getting
into about 70 percent of
the nation's private uni-
versities, its test results
show.
The results were
released at a briefing in
Tokyo on Nov. 23.
The goal is for Torobo-
kun, a robot developed
by the National Institute
of Informatics and other
organizations, to under-
stand words commonly
used by people and solve
complicated problems.
Specifically, the project
aims to have Torobo-kun
achieve high scores on
national center tests
by fiscal 2016 and pass
the University of Tokyo
entrance exam by fiscal
2021.

Pakistan's
high-profile chief
justice retires
ISLAMABAD (AP) -
Pakistan's chief justice
has stepped down after a
high-profile career during
which he was praised for
protecting democracy but
also criticized for judicial
overreach.
Iftikhar Chaudhry
marked the end of his
term on Wednesday with
a speech at the Supreme
Court in the capital,
Islamabad.
He was appointed
chief justice in 2005
and attracted national
prominence two years
later, when he was
sacked by then-Presi-
dent Pervez Musharraf.
He was reinstated in


2009 after a protest
movement led by the
nation's lawyers.
Chaudhry leveraged
his prominent position to
pressure the government
and military on issues


such as corruption and
illegal detentions. But
critics accused him of
wading into political
areas outside of the
judiciary's domain.
He will be replaced
by the next most senior
judge on the Supreme
Court, Tassaduq Jillani.

Canada's postal
home delivery
to be scrapped
OTTAWA (Bloomberg)
- Canada's postal service
will scrap door-to-door
mail delivery over the
next five years and cut
as many as 8,000 jobs
to offset declining mail
volume.
The Ottawa-based
agency is also raising
the price of stamps by as
much as 59 percent next
year, Canada Post said
today in a statement that
outlined steps to save
between C$700 million
($660 million) and
C$900 million a year.
"With the increasing
use of digital communi-
cation and the historic
decline of lettermail
volumes, Canada Post has
begun to post significant
financial losses," the
postal service said in the
statement. "If left un-
checked, continued losses
would soon jeopardize its
financial self-sufficiency
and become a significant
burden on taxpayers."

Basque separatists
sentenced to 3,860
years in prison
MADRID (MCT)-
Spain's National Court on
Wednesday sentenced
three Basque separatists
to 3,860 years in prison
each for a car bombing
that injured 160 people in
2009.
Reports said the sen-
tences were the longest
ever given for an attack
carried out by the Basque
separatist group ETA. In
practice, however, Spanish
law does not allow anyone
to stay in prison for more
than 40 years.
Daniel Pastor, Inigo
Zapirain and Beatriz
Etxebarria were found
guilty of 160 assassination
attempts and of com-
pletely destroying a police
barracks in the northern
city of Burgos on July 29,
2009.
The attackers used
a van loaded with 700
kilograms of explosives,
which they set off with a
timer.

Ukrainian leader offers talks,



protesters say no


KIEV Ukraine
(AP) Opposition
leaders in Ukraine
rejected President Viktor
Yanukovych's offer of
talks Wednesday, saying
they will not sit down
with him until he fires
his government and
releases all arrested
demonstrators.
That stance reflected
their growing confidence
after the abrupt with-
drawal of riot police from
parts of Ukraine's capital
early Wednesday raised
protesters' hopes that
weeks of demonstrations
have eroded police
support for Yanukovych
and his government.
Yanukovych issued
an invitation late in the
day to political, religious
and civil figures to join
a national dialogue. But
it gave no details about
a proposed date for the
talks and could have
been merely an attempt
to buy time and mollify
Western officials.
The opposition reac-
tion was scathing.
"Instead of a round
table, what we got is a
breakup (with) trun-
cheons. The authorities

Oleksandr Turchynov

Yuri Lutsenko, a
former Interior Minister
who is now another
opposition leader, said
the police retreat shows
that "basically only some
units remain" loyal to
Yanukovych.
"This is a great victory,"
ArseniyYatsenyuk, leader
of the largest opposition
party in parliament, said

(LA Times) -In a bold
and controversial move,
Uruguay on Tuesday
became the first country
to legalize marijuana and
make it a farm-to-table
state business.
President Jose Mujica
championed the bill
that narrowly passed the
Chamber of Senators,
arguing that "the repres-
sive path has failed" to dis-
courage drug use. Despite
penalties for buying or
selling marijuana, its
consumption has grown
and served to enrich the
criminals who control
illegal trade, he said.
"We've given this
market as a gift to the drug
traffickers, and that is
more destructive socially
than the drug itself,
because it rots the whole
of society," the president
told Argentina's Telam
news agency.
By legalizing, regulating
and taxing marijuana
production and sales,
Uruguay is moving the

Winston


and the


'Road to


Glory'

By KYLE HIGHTOWER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
LAKE BUENAVISTA,
SThe first time Florida
State quarterback Jameis
Winston ever thought
about winning the
Heisman Trophy, he was
a 12-year-old kid playing
video games.
"Playing NCAA 2006
was the first time I was
aware of the Heisman,"
he said Wednesday.
"When you could create
a player and do the 'Road
to Glory' and you could
get the Heisman."
Now that road could
end with him holding the
real thing, and several
other big awards.
Winston is the over-
whelming favorite to win
the award now that a
sexual assault complaint
against him in Tallahassee
has been closed without
charges being filed.
Winston enters today's

returns

as 49ers'

assistant
By GREG AUMAN
TAMPA BAY TIMES
TAMPA -Former
South Florida coach Jim
Leavitt will be on the
sideline at Raymond
James Stadium on Sunday
for the first time in more
than four years. But the
49ers' linebackers coach
said he's enjoying the NFL
enough not to worry too
much about the past or
present of Bulls football.
"You're focused on the
49ers," said Leavitt, USF's
first coach who was fired
Jan. 8, 2010, after being
accused of slapping a
player during halftime of
a game. "You don't look
back: 'Oh, I wish they
were doing better or not
better.' I try not to get
into that world. That's
somebody else's program.
I don't have anything to
do with it now."
Leavitt, whose last
home game for USF came
Nov. 28, 2009, got $2.75
million from the school
in a settlement after his
firing. He did not coach
in 2010. On Jan. 19, 2011,

Price braces for trade


Speculation
centers on Seattle
By MARC TOPKIN
TAMPA BAY TIMES
LAKE BUENA VISTA- David
Price will still be with the
Tampa Bay Rays when base-
ball's winter meetings end
today.
But based on how much talk
there has been about him here
and how little he has heard oth-
erwise from the Rays, Price on
Wednesday said he is prepared
to be traded.
"It's something I've kind of
prepared myself for," Price said
via text message. "I've seen my


teammates go through it and
watched how they handled it.
Just waiting to see what is going
to happen."
The suddenly free-spending
Mariners, who made two more
additions Wednesday, contin-
ue to be at the center of the
speculation.
Though they say they don't
plan to trade top pitching
prospect Taijuan Walker, that
doesn't necessarily preclude
a deal for Price as they could
put together an appealing
package of several other top
young players such as infielder
Nick Franklin, catcher Mike
Zunino and now-available first
baseman Justin Smoak, among
others.


SPRING TRAINING
COUNTDOWN


63
Days until Tampa Bay Rays pitchers and
catchers report for spring training on
Feb. 14 at Charlotte Sports Park

There is also thought that the
Dodgers, despite publicly deny-
ing interest in adding a starter,
could be positioning them-
selves to make a significant
offer. Though they don't have
a single premiere prospect,
they, too, could put together
a package and have extensive


financial resources.
A sampling of industry offi-
cials is that some teams have
expressed only initial interest
while others are further along
and, of course, there could
be a surprise team (Braves?)
but nothing is considered
imminent. For what it's worth,
Rays principal owner Stuart
Sternberg left the meetings
Wednesday.
Price has two years until
he becomes eligible for free
agency. But given the high price

* AUTO RACING: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series


Dillon b

Number hasn't
been used since
Earnhardt's death
ByJENNA FRYER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
CONCORD, N.C. -The late
Dale Earnhardt's famed No. 3
will be back on track in the elite
Sprint Cup Series next season
with Austin Dillon using the
number.
The move has been long
anticipated because car owner
Richard Childress has allowed
his grandson to use the No. 3 as
he's moved through NASCAR's
ranks.
"I know in my heart, today,
as I sit here, Dale Earnhardt is
smiling down," Childress said
at Wednesday's unveiling. "He
would want to see this 3. He
didn't want it to ever go away.
But I felt it was the thing to do
right after Daytona, and I know
today that he's accepting this

3 back to Sprint Cup


Austin Dillon smiles in front of the car he will drive in the 2014 NASCAR Sprint
Cup Series during a news conference Wednesday at Charlotte Motor Speedway in
Concord, N.C. The late Dale Earnhardt's famed No. 3 will be back on track in the
Sprint Cup Series next season for the first time since the driver's death in 2001.


highly. I knew him that well."
The number has not been
used since Earnhardt's death
in the 2001 season-opening


Daytona 500. The car was
rebranded to No. 29 for Kevin
Harvick following Earnhardt's
fatal accident.


But Dillon has been using it
in NASCAR national competi-
tion since 2009, when he made
his Truck Series debut in the
No. 3. He won the Truck cham-
pionship in 2011 driving the No.
3 for Richard Childress Racing,
and the Nationwide title this
year in the same number.
Childress kept the number
out of the Cup Series, though,
intent on hanging on to it for
the right driver.
"We held the number, I've
been paying NASCAR for it
throughout the years and Bill
(France) Jr. told me 'You know,
if we're ever challenged, we'll
have to let someone have
that 3,'" Childress said. "But
we weren't, and I knew that
the right opportunity would
come. It would have to be
an Earnhardt or one of the
Childress family that we would
put behind that."
Childress said he publicly

MLB plans ban on plate collisions


League cites

player safety

in its decision
By RONALD BLUM
ASSOCIATED PRESS
LAKE BUENA VISTA-
Major League Baseball
plans to eliminate home
plate collisions, possibly
as soon as next season
but no later than by 2015.
New York Mets general
manager Sandy Alderson,
chairman of the rules
committee, made the an-
nouncement Wednesday
at the winter meetings.
Player safety and concern


over concussions were
major factors in the
decision.
"Ultimately what we
want to do is change the
culture of acceptance
that these plays are
ordinary and routine and
an accepted part of the
game," Alderson said.
"The costs associated in
terms of health and injury
just no longer warrant the
status quo."
In a sport long bound
by tradition, a ban will
be a major step. MLB
also is instituting a vast
increase in the use of
instant replay by umpires
next season in an effort to


eliminate blown calls.
"What are they going to
do next, you can't break
up a double play?" Pete
Rose said in a telephone
interview with The
Associated Press. "You're
not allowed to pitch
inside. The hitters wear
more armor than the
Humvees in Afghanistan.
Now you're not allowed
to be safe at home plate?
What's the game coming
to? Evidently the guys
making all these rules
never played the game of
baseball."
Rose, banned for life in
1989 following a gambling
investigation, famously


bowled over catcher Ray
Fosse in the 1970 All-Star
game. Rose insists Fosse
was blocking the plate
without the ball, which is
against the rules.
"Since 1869, baseball
has been doing pretty
well," Rose said. "The
only rules they ever
changed was the mound
(height) and the DH. I
thought baseball was
doing pretty good. Maybe
I'm wrong about the
attendance figures and
the number of people
going to ballgames."
Citing player safety,
Alderson said wording
of the rules change will


be presented to owners
for approval at their Jan.
16 meeting in Paradise
Valley, Ariz.
"The exact language
and how exactly the rule
will be enforced is subject
to final determination,"
he said. "We're going to
do fairly extensive review
of the types of plays that
occur at home plate to
determine which we're
going to find acceptable
and which are going to be
prohibited."
Approval of the players'
union is needed for
the rules change to be
effective for 2014.

Marlins'

Morrison goes

to M's in trade

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAKE BUENA VISTA-
Free-agent right-hander
Bartolo Colon and the
Mets have reached a deal,
giving the New York the
starter it was seeking to
replace injured ace Matt
Harvey.
The deal is pending
the completion of a
physical for the 18-game
winner, a person familiar
with the negotiations
told The Associated
Press. The two-year, $20
million agreement came
Wednesday at the winter
meetings and increased
the Mets' spending on
free agents to more than
$87 million. The person
spoke on condition of
anonymity because an
agreement had not yet
been completed.
Out of baseball in
2010 because of injuries,
the 2005 AL CyYoung
Award winner revived
his career with New York
and Oakland over the
past three years. Even
though he will be 41 in
May, Colon went 18-6 last
year with a 2.65 ERA for
the Athletics in a season
he began by completing
a 50-game suspension for
a positive testosterone
test. He struck out 117 and
walked only 29 in 190 13
innings.

slugging first baseman-outfielders

STAFF REPORT
ENGLEWOOD -
Lemon Bay High School
coach Don Southwell
has seen a lot in his 12
seasons. But he was still
pumped up after his
squad's performance on
Wednesday night.
The Manta Rays got first-
place finishes from six girls
in a 44-33 weightlifting win
against LaBelle to improve
to 8-3 at the season's half-
way point. Jessica Garza
tied her personal best and
school record 135-pound
lift in the clean and jerk
at 119 pounds on her way
to winning the class. She
finished with a 230-pound
total.
Anna Fetzer (129
pounds) and Kacee
Nelson (101) also tied
personal bests in the
clean and jerk in win-
ning their respective
weight classes. Fetzer's
145-pound lift tied a
school record.
"I'm super excited about
this team," Southwell said.
"If we do really well on
Monday (at Venice) we'll
have the best record we've
had in the 12 years I've
been coach."
Claudia Ramirez (139),
Allyson Gilbert (183) and
Carlie Peacock (199) also
earned first-place finishes
for the Mantas. Ramirez
lifted 135 in the bench
press, and Southwell
said she will try to break
the school record with a
145-pound lift Monday.
Southwell was also
impressed with freshman

placed second in the

UCF dominates


second half in win


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ORLANDO Kasey
Wilson scored 20 points
and pulled down 10
rebounds to help the
University of Central
Florida rally past Howard
University 79-64 on
Wednesday night.
Calvin Newell scored
19 points and Daiquan
Walker added 10 for UCF
(5-3), which outscored
Howard 49-32 in the
second half to pull away
with the victory.
The Bison (2-10),
playing without leading
scorer James Daniel, got
20 points from Prince
Okoroh and 16 from
Solomon Mangham, but
couldn't get another play-
er in double figures and
lost their 10th straight
game.
UCF made nine
3-pointers in the second
half, when it shot 48.4
percent (15 of 31) and
found a solution for
Howard's zone defense.
The Knights had run of
four straight 3-pointers
that broke open what had
been a competitive game
for the first 30 minutes.
"We've seen a lot of
zone defense and we re-
ally struggle with them,"
UCF Coach Donnie
Jones said. "You've got
to make some shots to
loosen up the zone and
we did in the second half
because we made some
extra passes that gave us
good looks. Guys were
making the second, third
and even fourth pass to
get the best shot and it
showed."
Howard held a 32-30
halftime lead, but the
Bison, who played six
freshmen, couldn't find
any energy in the second
half when UCF started
pulling away.
"Freshmen and fatigue,
the same two things that
have gotten us all year,"
Howard Coach Kevin
Nickelberry said. "We've
played a lot of good
halves this season, but we
can't keep it going for a
whole game because we
just don't have the depth
or experience you need to
compete at this level."
UCF played the second

Patrick Sharp had a
goal and two assists for
Chicago, which has won

goals for the defending
Stanley Cup champions,

ings with 51 points.
Emery was pulled in
the third period of his
first start in Chicago since
he teamed with Crawford
to give the Blackhawks
one of the best goaltend-

17-1 with a sparkling 1.94
goals-against average
during his second year
with Chicago and then
signed a free-agent deal
with Philadelphia in July.
He received a standing

Magic snap six-game losing streak by beating Bobcats


By STEVE REED
ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N.C.-
Jameer Nelson had 12
of his 17 points in the
fourth quarter and the
Orlando Magic snapped
a six-game losing streak
with a 92-83 victory over
the Charlotte Bobcats on
Wednesday night.
Glen Davis added 17
points and 12 rebounds
and Nikola Vucevic
chipped in with 12 points
and 14 rebounds. Arron
Afflalo had 16 points.
Nelson came up with
a big 3-pointer late for
the Magic, and also had
seven rebounds and six
assists while outplaying
opposing point guard
Kemba Walker.
The Bobcats shot 37
percent to end their two-
game win streak.
Al Jefferson led
Charlotte with 10 points
and 11 rebounds. Walker,
who had 31 points
against Stephen Curry on
Monday night, was held
to 10 points on 4-of-18

shooting.
The Magic led by four
with just over a minute
remaining in the game
when Nelson knocked
down a 26-footer from
the top of the key to push
the lead to 86-79.
The Bobcats cut it
back to five, but Nelson
beat Walker on a drive
from the top of the key
to score on an easy layup
to get the lead back to
seven with 42 seconds
left and essentially seal
the victory.
Orlando led 43-42
at the break behind a
productive first half from
Vucevic, who had 12
points and 11 rebounds
while dominating early
inside against Jefferson.
It was Vucevic's 10th


double-double of the
season.
The game featured
a matchup of former
Indiana Hoosiers with
Cody Zeller taking on
Victor Oladipo and
both contributed. Zeller
finished with 10 points
on 5-of-7 shooting and
six rebounds, while
Oladipo had 10 points
on 5-of-10 shooting with
four rebounds.
After going 13 straight
games without giving up
100 points, the Bobcats'
second-ranked defense
allowed 111 points to
Golden State on Monday
night in a four-point
victory, prompting coach
Steve Clifford to say
tongue-in-cheek "we
shut them down." While
the Bobcats limited the
Magic to 42 percent
shooting, they couldn't
get their offense going
and the ball wouldn't go
down.
Charlotte allowed
36 points in the paint,
including 17 on sec-
ond-chance points.
Walker couldn't carry


over his momentum
from a terrific game
against the Warriors in
which he had 27 of his
31 points in the second
half in a duel with
Curry. Walker missed 9
of his first 10 shots on
Wednesday night and
never got on track.
Charlotte's trio
of Walker, Gerald
Henderson and Jefferson
were a combined 11 of 42
from the field.

U NFL:


Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, walks on the field during practice. It was announced Wedne
for the remainder of the season, and Kirk Cousins will take over as the starter.

Quarterback benched by coach Shan


By JOSEPH WHITE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
ASHBURN, Va. -Mike
Shanahan gave Robert
Griffin III a rest, and
may have turned up the
pressure on himself, too.
The Redskins' coach
announced Wednesday
that he is benching the
star quarterback for the
rest of the season. Kirk
Cousins will start, and
Griffin will be the inactive
No. 3 quarterback behind
Rex Grossman.
Shanahan said he
is benching Griffin to
keep the quarterback
healthy for the offseason,
pointing out the 24 sacks
and other hits Griffin
has taken over the last
five games. He said he
ran the idea by owner
Dan Snyder and general
manager Bruce Allen, and
that both offered their
support.
"You've got to take
a look at the risk and
reward," Shanahan
said. "And with Robert I
thought that his hits were
piling up on him, giving


him his toll, and I was
afraid that we would set
him back."
Shanahan cited the
need for Griffin to have
a full offseason of de-
velopment after missing
this year's workouts while
rehabbing from knee
surgery. But there's no
certainty that Shanahan
will be around to coach
in the offseason: The
Redskins have lost five
straight and are 3-10,
their third losing season
in Shanahan's four years
in Washington.
"I think anytime you
have a year left on your
contract and you have
three wins, that's going to
be out there," Shanahan
said
Griffin was clearly
unhappy with Shanahan's
move.
"I expressed my desire
to play," Griffin said.
"Of course I want to be
out there and finish the
season with my guys, see
it through. He explained
to me his reasoning, and
at the end of the day
Coach's decision is what


we go with it."
Cousins took the
first-team snaps as the
team worked out in the
indoor practice bubble
to prepare for Sunday's
game against the Atlanta
Falcons. Players say
Griffin ran the scout
team.
The benching is
the latest twist in a
Shanahan-Griffin rela-
tionship that has been
bordering on contentious
since a playoff loss to
Seattle last season, when
Griffin remained in the
game even though he was
clearly injured. Shanahan
conceded for the first
time Wednesday that
continuing to play Griffin
"cost us the game."
Griffin had recon-
structive knee surgery
a few days later and
missed vital months of
developmental work
before returning for
Week 1 in September,
but he hasn't been the
same player that won the
league's Offensive Rookie
of the Year in 2012. With

HOUSTON Some
speedy children in
Houston have received
more than $17,000
worth of toys and other
Christmas gifts thanks
to Texans wide receiver
Andre Johnson.
A dozen at-risk young-
sters on Tuesday had 80
seconds to dash through
a toy store and grab what
they could to be paid
for by Johnson. His jersey
is No. 80.
Some of the NFL team's
cheerleaders helped the
needy children push
shopping baskets that
quickly filled with dolls,
electronic toys, iPads
and other holiday treats.
Each child also received
an entertainment game

The tab topped
$17,300.
Johnson, who for a
seventh year hosted the
charity event, says it's fun
for the children and for
him, too.

The season could yet
unravel, sending the
Dolphins to a losing
record for a fifth consec-
utive year. The findings
of NFL investigator Ted
Wells might implicate
coaches and staff.
But Miami also could
make the playoffs for
the first time since 2008,
which would be an
improbable achievement
given the state of the
franchise only a month
ago.
The Dolphins appeared
doomed after an embar-
rassing prime-time loss

Tampa Bay dropped them
to 4-5. Amid the swirl of
scandal and scrutiny of
their workplace, players
found comfort in Philbin's
stoic demeanor.
"He has been a good
leader even-keel the
whole way," tackle Bryant
McKinnie said. "You don't
want to see somebody
distressed."
When the season
seemed to be slipping
away, Philbin stuck to his
script. It's a long season,
he repeatedly told his
players. Take one game
at a time and worry only
about what you can
control.
Coaching cliches, yes.
But the team embraced
Philbin's message.
Team owner Stephen
Ross has remained
publicly supportive of
Philbin, and his job
security is helped by the
team's recent surge.

better story line. I always
wanted to coach in the
NFL."
Leavitt, who graduated
from Dixie Hollins High in
St. Petersburg, also is ex-
cited about coming back
to Tampa on a personal
level. He secured about
25 tickets for relatives and
friends, including daugh-
ter DeAndra, a senior at
Northside Christian.
"The neatest thing is
just being able to see
my family," said Leavitt,
whose parents still live in
St. Petersburg and whose
brother and sister and
their families live within
two hours of Tampa.
"There's all kinds of aunts
and uncles, nephews,
nieces, the whole deal."
Harbaugh said
Wednesday that Leavitt
has been well-received
by his players and fel-
low coaches because
of his dedication and
unselfishness.
"He's a great teammate.
He's about the team," he
said. "(There are) many
qualities he showers
us with daily: enthu-
siasm, hard work and
intelligence."


Sunday's game also will
be another Big East re-
union. Leavitt lost his final
four games to Rutgers and
current Bucs coach Greg
Schiano. Schiano faced
former Syracuse coach
Doug Marrone and the
Bills last weekend.

Series testing for the 2014 season at Charlotte Motor Speedway

NASCAR DOES FINAL
TEST FOR 2014 RULES

PACKAGE

CONCORD, N.C. (AP)
- NASCAR took the final
step toward setting its
2014 rules package with
a critical test session
Wednesday at Charlotte
Motor Speedway.
The test featured four
simulated races with four
configurations on the
Gen-6 Sprint Cup Series
car. Drivers had to attend
a mandatory debrief with
NASCAR following each
session to give feedback
on the aerodynamic,
engine and suspension
combinations.
NASCAR had 30 cars
participating in the test,
and planned to choose
the configuration most
favorable among drivers
to test with a tapered
spacer designed to reduce
engine horsepower.
The goal of the test is
to improve the racing
at 1.5-mile superspeed-
ways, which has been a
stated goal of NASCAR
Chairman Brian France.
He was scheduled to
attend the test Monday,
but rain postponed it until
Wednesday.
"Really what we're
attempting to do here is to
get closer competition and
more passing, closer com-
petition, the cars running
closer in the pack, passing
more with an eye for the
fans," Gene Stefanyshyn,
NASCAR's vice president
of innovation and racing
development.
"We're using various
metrics to look at that,
like the first to fifth time
differentials, the time
differentials between the
10 fastest laps, those types
of things."...
Former General Motors executive
Brent Dewar was hired as chief
operating officer of NASCAR.
NASCAR also promoted chief
marketing officer Steve Phelps and
senior vice president of racing opera-
tions Steve O'Donnell to executive vice
presidents. NASCAR general counsel
Gary Crotty was elevated to chief
legal officer. The executive leadership
restructuring reflects NASCAR chairman
Brian France's effort to accelerate
progress on changes in competition
and research and development....
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway
said it is ready to start several
improvement projects using $100
million in state assistance.
Track officials said approval on
Tuesday by Indiana Motorsports
Commission will allow it to move ahead
on arranging financing for the projects.
Modifications include the repaving
and reconfiguration of the track's road
course that was done this fall. A new
scoring pylon and new video screens
are planned for next spring.


COLLEGE ATHLETICS

championships 11 times, including the
2013 event in June....
The NCAA women's basketball
regionals are going back to neutral
sites. The championship committee

to have regionals on campus for this
season's tournament....


Tampa will host its second Frozen
Four at the Tampa BayTimes Forum in
2016. The event was also held at the

Minnesota's Xcel Energy Center
was named the site of the 2018
men's hockey championship, which
also came to the arena in 2002 and
2011. Chicago's United Center gets the
2017 men's Frozen Four, a first for the
Blackhawks'home arena. ...
Madison Square Garden will host
the 2016 NCAA Division I wrestling
national championships the iconic
arena's first NCAA title event since the
1950 Final Four.
The announcement came when
NCAA officials announced 523 host
sites for 82 championships. Sites for the
Division I men's basketball tournament,
Division I baseball and softball tourneys,
Division I football playoffs and women's
Final Fours had already been chosen.
All three NCAA divisions will compete
for field hockey titles at Louisville in 2017.


TENNIS

Nishikori hires Chang
as coach: Japan's Kei Nishikori has
enlisted the help of Michael Chang as he
looks to break into the top 10 in 2014.
Chang will join Nishikori's coaching
staff for 17-20 weeks, Nishikori's
management team announced. The
41-year-old American will act as an
advisory coach to the 17th-ranked
Nishikori, with full-time coach Dante
Bottini remaining in his current role.
Nishikori has been training with Chang
for the last two weeks in California....
The WTA's Brussels Open has folded
after three years because it has become
too expensive to stage. The tournament
was a clay-court event the week before
the French Open, and drew top players
like Caroline Wozniacki, Agnieszka
Radwanska and Marion Bartoli....
The International Tennis Hall of
Fame in Newport, RI., has received
its first official go-ahead, winning
permission to demolish four buildings
and move a fifth to make way for the
new tennis complex that will include
indoor and outdoor courts, a fitness
center and other features.


SOCCER

Revolution's Reis retires:
New England Revolution goalkeeper
Matt Reis retired after a 16-year career
to become the goalie coach for the Los
Angeles Galaxy.
Reis, who spent the past 11 seasons
with the Revolution, is a four-time
MLS all-star. He starred at UCLA before
playing for the Galaxy from 1998 to
2002 and helping the club win its first
MLS Cup in 2002. He's coming off a
strong season with a 7-0-4 record for
New England, the first MLS goalkeeper
to go undefeated while playing at least
10 games. But he played in just 12
games because of physical problems
and the Boston Marathon bombing in
which his father-in-law, John Odom,
was severely injured....
Jason Kreis has stepped down as
coach of Real Salt Lake, three days
after losing Major League Soccer's
championship game, to become coach
of the expansion NewYork City FC team
that starts play in 2015. Kreis, who
turns 41 on Dec. 29, played for Salt
Lake from 2005-07 before becoming
coach. He led the team to the 2009
MLS Cup championship, becoming the
youngest coach to win the title.


SKIING

Vonn to skip St. Moritz:
Mapping out her Olympics preparation
after a three-race test, Lindsey Vonn
will skip this weekend's World Cup
stop at St. Moritz, Switzerland, and
is planning to return to the circuit in
a downhill atVal d'lsere, France, on
Dec. 21.
The 29-year-old American returned
to competition at Lake Louise, Alberta,
last week, 10 months after tearing
two ligaments in her right knee and
breaking a bone in that leg during a
crash at the world championships.
She also had a setback when she
partially re-tore one of those surgically

*COLLEGE ATHLETICS




Conferences seek power play


Big five leagues
want more
autonomy

By RACHEL COHEN
ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK -The five
power conferences of
college sports want more
flexibility in providing
financial support to
athletes.
A major reason they
lack that freedom in the
first place is other NCAA
members have feared
widening the wealthiest
programs' competitive
advantage. Now NCAA
President Mark Emmert
and the leaders of those


behemoth leagues must
convince schools with
fewer resources that giv-
ing them greater autono-
my is in the best interest
of college athletics.
"What's really hard in
these kinds of things is for
people to vote themselves
less political authority,"
Big Ten Commissioner
Jim Delany said
Wednesday. "They don't
do that. That's not a
natural thing to do."
NCAA leaders are
exploring ways to alter
their governing structure,
which would allow the
colleges that can afford it
to pay for certain expens-
es currently prohibited.
That includes offering


a stipend for the costs
of attending school not
covered by scholarships.
Emmert told reporters
at the Intercollegiate
Athletics Forum that
members are "cautiously
optimistic" an acceptable
plan can be devised.
Then again, he was
confident two years ago
that a Division I-wide
stipend proposal would
be approved. Instead, it
stalled partly because
programs with less mon-
ey worried it would force
them to choose between
unaffordable costs and
falling further behind
their richer rivals.
There are 340 schools in
Division I, and only 120 of


them are in the Football
Bowl Subdivision. Just 65
will be in the five power
conferences.
As commissioner of
the Sun Belt, Karl Benson
leads an FBS league that
lacks an automatic BCS
bid. He supports greater
autonomy for those five
as long as there's proper
oversight and believes a
change will come, though
it won't be very dramatic.
The non-FBS confer-
ences "have mobilized,
and rightfully so," Benson
said. "I think everyone
wants to protect their turf
and wants to protect their
future."
Delany acknowl-
edged that he and his


counterparts don't have
many concessions to
offer the other members
to entice them to approve
a change that clearly bol-
sters those five leagues.
But the tribulations that
have recently roiled
college sports may mean
this time really is differ-
ent. From the botched
investigation of Miami to
lawsuits seeking compen-
sation for athletes, "we
got to a tipping point last
year," Delany insisted.
When critics rip
universities for spending
lavishly on coaching
salaries and locker rooms
while athletes struggle to
pay for basic expenses,
they're thinking of his


league and the Atlantic
Coast Conference,
Big 12, Pacific-12 and
Southeastern Conference.
The time has come for
those five to address such
shortcomings, Delany
said. He argues that the
solution benefits all
NCAA members.
"If we're not healthy, it
doesn't help them at all,"
he said after appearing
on a panel with his
four fellow commis-
sioners at the forum,
which is sponsored by
IMG and presented by
SportsBusiness Daily/
Global/Journal. "When
we're criticized, they're
implicitly criticized."

floated the idea of allow-
ing Dillon to use the No.
3 at the start of the year
to get a fan response, and
got 90 percent positive
feedback the day after he
mentioned the number.
"That said to me it was
time, and if Austin want-
ed to it was his choice,"
Childress said.
Dillon said he was
ready, and it's the only
number he's ever used in
NASCAR.
"My grandfather has
done a great job of teach-
ing me how to handle
certain responses to
things, and I think we're
going to go forward with
it," Dillon said. "I've heard
a lot of good feedback
from the fans, and every
time I'm at an autograph
session I've had some-
one ask what's going to
happen. They are excited
and we are, too, at RCR.
"It's what our sport was
built on family and
history- and a great
opportunity for all of our
sport to see this No. 3
back on the track."
The No. 3 Chevrolet will
be sponsored by Dow,
Bass Pro, Realtree and
General Mills. Neither of
the two paint schemes
unveiled Wednesday
resembled the dominant
black cars driven by
Earnhardt, winner of
seven Cup titles and a
first ballot Hall of Famer.
But Childress believed
just having the No. 3 back
in the series will help
resurrect Earnhardt's
legacy.
"My hope is that Dale
Earnhardt fans will be
re-energized and say 'Hey,
it gives me something to
look at,'" he said. "We
know we aren't going to
please everyone. We know
that. We are going to do
our best to make them
proud and I know Austin
will. I think the new fans
will learn a lot about the
great Dale Earnhardt by
watching this."
Gil Martin, who led
Harvick to six berths in
the Chase for the Sprint
Cup championship, will
be crew chief for Dillon.
Childress said he's con-
sulted with Dale Earnhardt
Jr. and his sister, Kelley,
every time he's moved
the No. 3 to a different
level on the track and the
Earnhardt family has been
supportive. Earnhardt Jr.
declined to use the No. 3
following his father's death,
but has raced the number
in the Nationwide Series.
"I would be worried if
I didn't think he'd respect
it or not understand the
legacy, but he does. I
know he does. He appre-
ciates it," Earnhardt Jr.
said last week of Dillon
using the No. 3.
RCR will field a three-car
Cup lineup next season
with Dillon, Paul Menard
and Ryan Newman.

Capt. Mil


Mike Myers will be spilling all his
beans about winter fishing. Natu-
rally, he'll also be only too pleased to
answer whatever fishing questions
you might have.
I've heard a lot of charter
captains speak, but Mike is
honestly one of my favorites. He's
funny, he's down to earth, and he
actually shares useful information.
Too often, I've watched a seminar
devolve into an minfomercial for a
guide's sponsors. Capt. Mike doesn't
play those games. That's why
we chose him to be a WaterLine
columnist in the first place, and it's
why we chose him to kick off our
seminar series.


Secrets. Tricks. Tips. Every fish-
erman is always on the lookout for a
few good ones. The reason is simple:
Fishing is easy; catching is hard. But
this is a good thing. It ensures there
are fish for the future. It keeps the
tackle shops and charter captains
(and this magazine) in business. If
catching were easy, we'd probably
fish less. No sport in it.
I digress. An angler is only as good
as his (or her) education. To that
end, WaterLine will be conducting a
series of seminars. The first one just
happens to be tonight (Dec. 12) at
Gaspanrilla Marina in Placida. Capt.

e 's secrets


Mike is a very knowledgable
fisherman, and he's taught me a
lot over the past few years. I'm not
saying he's perfect nobody's
perfect but if you want to learn
how to fish in Southwest Florida's
inshore waters, you sure could pick
a worse teacher. The thing I really
like about Mike is how open he is
with sharing what he knows. Heck,
I've ever heard him share with
other guides at the boat ramp, and
I know it was straight dope because
I had just been out on the water
with him.
Mike's seminar is just the first. The
plan is to have a seminar every other
week, once we get past the holidays.


We have a broad spectrum of writing
staff to draw from, and our events
won't all be about fishing. Take a
look at the content of the magazine
- that's what our seminar series
will cover.
But this one will be, and I know
there are a lot of you who would like
to learn a bit more about our local
fishing. So come hang out with us
tonight at Gasparilla Marina (15001
Gasparilla Road, Placida). Mike's
talk will begin at 6:30 p.m. You
don't need to register, and we won't
charge you a dime. We'll be giving
away some nifty door prizes, and the
marina will be providing refresh-
ments. Don't miss it!

The sheepshead bite has really started to pick up
around Matlacha and Pine Island Sound. Use a small jig
head and some frozen shrimp or live fiddler crabs, and
be ready to setthe hook. Pompano have been feeding
near beaches and passes using jigs tipped with small
shrimp. Snook and redfish are scattered, and can be
found near the mangroves during the moving tides.


There have been reports of blackfin tuna,
barracuda and red grouper in at least
65 feet of water. Go deeper for mangrove
snapper and even vermillion snapper.

A few reports of king mackerel, and a lot
of red grouper around the offshore wrecks.
Take advantage of the lack of wind offshore.
Hopefully it stays that way for a while.


Trout are piling up, with a
few bigger ones scattered.
Any soft plastics will do.

Bigger trout are being
caught all over the flats. Get
them on the edges of the
flats or overgrass in 4to8
feet. Live shrimp under a
popping cork is a safe bet.


Hats are priced at $14.02 each plus tax, which
conveniently comes to $15 (we planned it
that way). Shipping is $7 anywhere in the

We're lucky to live, work and play in such
a special place as Southwest Florida. If there
was any doubt about this, a comparison
between our weather during the last week
and the weather across most of the country
is a good reminder. Not only do we enjoy
the best climate in the country, we also
live on Charlotte Harbor, a large, unique
estuary which is chock full of fun. Anglers,
sailboaters, kayakers, cruisers and people
who simply like looking at the dolphin-filled
water can all agree that this is a pretty cool
area. To make this area even greater, there
are a few things I'd like to see in 2014 that
could help to really put us over the top.

END TO BOCA GRANDE PASS CRAZINESS
Boca Grande Pass is a treasure. It's deep,
turbid, roiling water, hard-running tidal
currents and craggy, ledge-strewn floor
create a haven for fish of many kinds,
though the big inlet is most famous for the
tens of thousands of tarpon which congre-
gate there each spring.
Sadly, the thousands of tarpon anglers
that congregate in the Pass during those
spring months create a floating mayhem
of tense, tight-quarters fishing, complete
with flaring tempers and finger pointing.
In September, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission enacted regula-
tions affecting gear and tactics used when
fishing for tarpon. But these new rules
seem unlikely to solve the problems in Boca
Grande Pass because they do not address
the core issue too many people fishing
in too small an area.
Fortunately, so far the tarpon have


continued to use the Pass as a staging area
for their spring spawn in spite of all the
craziness. It would be a real shame if we
eventually drove the fish elsewhere.

END TO FRUSTRATING FEDERAL
FISHERY MANAGEMENT
Managing fisheries is a tricky business.
The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Manage-
ment Council is tasked with managing
commercial and recreational fisheries in
federal water in the Gulf of Mexico, and
most fishermen are not happy with the
results. There are hard-working, dedicated
and well-intentioned people on the Gulf
Council and employed as staff members,
but they're struggling with a system that
simply doesn't work.
Major management decisions are usually
based on fish stock information that is
years out of date, and the entire process of
creating or changing regulations is woefully
slow.
The most glaring example of frustrating
management comes from the red snapper
fishery. Everyone recreational fish-
ermen, commercial fishermen, fishery
biologists and the members of the Gulf
Council all agree that red snapper stocks
are healthy and growing larger, perhaps
now rivaling the highest levels in recorded
history.
But somehow, the fishing seasons grow
shorter each year, much to the befuddle-
ment of fishermen who find themselves
releasing never-before-seen numbers of
these popular fish. Grouper fishermen
have been through a similar scenario in


recent years as hetijpAlrejArding '
the harvest of red grouper and gag have
gone back and forth with seemingly little
correlation to the number offish in the
Gulf.
The solution to this problem will not
come from the Gulf Council, but rather
must come from Washington D.C. in the
form of a congressional redesign of the
Council system.

MORE YOUTH ON THE WATER
AND IN THE WOODS
I'd love to see more kids on the water
and in the woods. Which do you think is
healthier: A housebound child completely
engrossed in intently manipulating a video
game controller, or a child walking through
the woods, completely immersed in the
sights, sounds and smells of the forest?
Which would you rather see: Teens walking
the mall, many of them focused on their
cellphones as fingers pound out endless
texts, or those same youngsters out on
the Harbor chasing fish, piloting sailboats,
riding tubes or simply splashing around?
Most of the readers of this column are
outdoor types and will likely agree that
getting the kids outside is important, yet
the numbers show that youth participation
in hunting and fishing is slipping. It's to
everyone's benefit, our own and the young-
sters, if this trend can be reversed. If you
have kids, take the time to introduce them
to outdoor adventures. If you don't have
kids, or if you are past your child-rearing
years, then support organizations that offer
outdoor activities to the youth.


"A FEW SUGGESTIONS FOR FWC RULE TWEAKS
The FWC does a very good job at managing
Florida's complex and varied wildlife. So good,
that I'd give them about a 9.5 out of 10 in
their oversight of Florida's saltwater fisheries.
This said, there are a few issues in the current
fishing regulations that I think could be
addressed. In no particular order:
Reduce the bag limit on sheepshead,
15 fish per person per day is too many,
and I suspect that in recent years, that the
fishery has declined as a result.
Quit following the Gulf Council on
grouper regulations, and do what's best for
Florida's anglers, starting with the closed
season on gag. This year there were four
big bend counties that were given an open
season in the winter that coincided with
the best shallow water fishing, while the
remainder of Florida's Gulf counties were
stuck following federal regulations.
Reduce the boat limit on cobia. Six of
these special fish per boat per day is too many.
Close redfish season for a month or two
each summer.
Make the slot limit on snook a little
lower, and a little tighter. Maybe 24 to 27
inches? This would lessen the harvest of
spawning-sized females.
Let's go fishing!

is for the trailer to
breakdown.

If you trailer your boat, and neglect the
trailer, it will leave you sitting on the side
of the road. It's not a case of if, it's a case
of when. However, a little trailer care goes
a long way, and it's probably one of the
easiest things to care for when considering
all the other things we take care of as
boaters.
Most all trailer troubles can be seen,
unlike other things like engines. A visual
inspection of the trailer can give you clues
as to whether you will have troubles down
the road. Visually look at the tongue when
hooking up. Is it rusty? Do the wires to the
plug look good? How about the jack stand?
Does it function freely, or is it stiff and just
needs some lubrication? What about the
winch and winch strap? Is it rusty and sun


beaten? The best time to repair is before
it breaks.
Moving towards the back of the trailer,
how do the tires look? Are they full of air?
If they are low, you can usually tell just
by looking. Are they worn? That could be
signs of under or overinflation. It could
also be signs of other trouble with springs
or axles.
Have you checked the lights? Maybe
they need to be replaced now with LED
trailer lights. We see less light failures
with the LED lights. It could be a good
time to upgrade your lights if they are not
functioning as they should.
These may be a lot of questions, but
trust me, the last thing you need is to have
your trailer break down in the middle of


nowhere. Worse, it could break down on a
busy highway.
Many of us in Southwest Florida use the
boat and trailer more on the weekends
when repair shops are closed. Or if they
are opened, they have limited services and
hours.
You can get a little better look at the
trailer after you launch the boat. When
you go park, take a close look at the
hardware. Is there corrosion around the
bolts or springs? A little time looking and
getting repaired beforehand could save
hundreds of dollars in damage, and towing
- not to mention your day off to enjoy.
Don't forget the spare tire, too. Check your
air pressure and keep the lug nuts lubri-
cated in case of a flat. Salt water has a way


of seizing parts together.
We can tell you some horror stories of
trailers breaking that have damaged the
boat, the truck and so on. Keep up with
your trailer maintenance, and hopefully it
will take your boat to and from the water
safely.

Some of us like to share presents, and
others share their time. Our most valuable
gift is our time because it's very limited.
Make time to share with family and your
friends it's a wonderful way to enjoy this
special season.
Now, in case anyone's interested in gift
ideas, here are some possibilities. We all have
to consider price, even though we hate it, so
put more thought into this process. You want
to get the most for your investments.
There are many gifts that are not big
ticket items. Sure, we all like to target
the big fish with our buddies, but finding
time to take a kid fishing for anything
is wonderful. They don't care about the
catching part; they enjoy your company.
Emphasize the fun fishing aspect and make
a big deal out of the adventure. Catch
anything you can, and enjoy the time
shared. Point out the shore birds, pelicans,
eagles, osprey and other wildlife. Help them
see more of the ways we read the water
and understand nature. Let them show you
what gets them pumped up. Share, go slow


and look quietly while you listen together.
The waves, fish and birds all make delicate
sounds you won't hear over nosy engines.
Consider gifts that you can enjoy as a
family or with your friends. Kayaks and
paddleboards aren't too expensive these
days. They even help us exercise, and allow
us to fish where boats can't go. I can assure
you that the best way for you to learn about
our fishing and wildlife is to do it quietly.
Wading, walking, paddling and poling -
you don't catch bay fish trolling at 40 miles
per hour!
If you can afford a local guide, then
hire one. Do your research and be sure you
communicate your specific desires and
needs. We aren't really mind readers, except
with fish. Please understand that while
us guides are always working to help you
catch fish, most of our observation skills are
directed to the waters nearby to see any fish
activity. We're always looking for any fish
indicators. Our job is to entertain, educate
and try to help you catch fish.
Like most things in life, you get exactly


what you pay for when hiring a guide. To
duplicate my rig and minimum gear would
require about $100,000, not including the
truck to haul it. The cost of fuel is ridiculous,
and boats get very few miles per gallon,
even with my efficient $20,000 Evinrude.
I've been supporting myself fishing since
1972, and that's a lot of experience to draw
from. We have several very skilled, expert
guides in every area of our region. Just be
sure you and the guide understand what
you expect and make it reasonable we're
good guides, not God! Communication is
everything.
Fishing gear can be a great gift, and
you can find something for every budget.
Please take the time to understand what
the recipient can actually use. Don't talk to
the sales staff until after you talk with your
fisherman. It's fine to just get what you can;
be it a new rod or reel. Even some new line
and lures are fine. After all, this is about
you caring enough to give them something.
We have several quality bait shops adver-
tising in WaterLine. Select one or two, and


shop during off times so they can take the
time to answer your questions. Support our
advertisers. They're local and here for your
convenience. Yes, you may save a buck at the
big stores, but we need to take care of our
local businesses first.
Safety gear is an option most of us don't
take seriously. We tend to go for the fun
gear and short ourselves on safety gear.
Life jackets, fire extinguisher and safety
lights are just a few examples of affordable
gifts. Nothing is more important than your
family's safety!
See, it's not so hard, and most of our local
shops are not crowded now either. Let's try
to help each other and make this the best
holiday season ever! Thank you for your
time.

Visitors to Peace River Wildlife Center may
have been disappointed recently when they
noticed Bobo and Bebe, our two white pelicans,
were off display. They have been in a treatment
area closer to the hospital so Bobo could receive
daily medication for an infection in the back of
his pouch. His condition comes and goes and
has been treated over the years with numerous
medications. It is not contagious; none of the
other pelicans or other birds that share the
pond enclosure have been affected. And it does
not appear to cause any distress in Bobo, but
the growths are unsightly and we worry that
they could eventually impede his ability to eat.
Since his absence previously has caused Bebe
to become anxious, she joined him during his
convalescence.
The two of them are such a sweet couple.
We have to go into the cage every day to put
medicine down Bobo's throat. And each time
we approach, he huddles over Bebe as if to
protect her. Bobo has been with PRWC for over
six years. He came to us as a transfer from the
Wildlife Center of Venice. They had treated
him for a broken wing, but he was not able to
regain his ability to fly. Since WCV is not open to
the public and does not have a display area for
permanent residents, they sent Bobo to us for
safekeeping. He has always been a sight to see,
hanging out with our flock of brown pelicans,
which are half his size.
When Bebe was admitted to PRWC almost
two years later, it seemed like love at first sight
when she was taken out to the pelican pond
area in Bobo's eyes, anyway. When we add a
new bird to an exhibit, there is usually cautious
interest between all the birds involved. They
will warily circle each other and then normally
pretty much ignore each other. When we set
Bebe down at the edge of the enclosure, Bobo
came charging right over. His enthusiasm
apparently startled Bebe at first, and she
turned tail and ran away from him. They're not
the most graceful creatures on dry land, and
a pelican running at full speed is a sight to be
seen. Eventually she figured out that he meant
her no harm, and they have been inseparable


ever since.
Walt Disney himself could not have written
a more timeless love story. Of course, had this
been an actual Disney movie, the birds would
have been swans and when they shared true
love's first kiss they would have turned into
humans and lived happily ever after. Which is
much better than if it had been a Grimm's fairy
tale. If that were the case, the two beautiful
majestic white pelicans would have thrown the
scrappy little brown pelicans in an oven and
eaten them. In the real world (where most of us
live), the outcome of the story is somewhere in
between. Bobo and Bebe will live out their days
here at PRWC where we will endeavor to keep
them fed and safe from predators and disease.
They are both back out on display just in
time for our Sunset Celebration this Friday,
Dec.13 from 4to 6 p.m. The wine and cheese
reception will be held in our facility and all
donations will help us purchase new signs
for the residents' habitats. We hope to finally
replace the"temporary" signs that were put up
for a couple months a few years ago. Luna, our
leucistic screech owl, will be on hand (literally)
to greet all his Luna-tics and for a photo op.
Our gift shop will be open for those of you who
want to do a little holiday shopping for friends
and family, or even yourself! Grab a glass of
wine, listen to live music by Steve Widmeyer,
and stroll out to the beach to watch a beautiful
sunset over Charlotte Harbor. Stop in for a rare
after-hours peak at PRWC's residents as some of
them settle in for the night and some get ready
for their"day"to begin.
Peace River Wildlife Center is a nonprofit
organization, dedicated to the care, preservation

One of the nice things
about Florida weather is our mild winters.
But for a fisherman, a winter that comes in
fits and starts can be highly frustrating.
See, fish don't act the same in winter
as they do in fall. In a "normal" year, by
mid-December we should be moving into
a winter pattern water temperatures
in the 60s, no baitfish to be found, lots of
sheepshead on the inshore reefs, snook
headed up the rivers, and big trout abun-
dant and biting well.
Instead, what we have are more like
October conditions, with water temperatures
running 10 degrees warmer than they ought
to be. That would be fine, but the week of
chilly and overcast January-style weather
around Thanksgiving screwed that all up.
As a result, the fish are confused -
they're caught in a limbo between fall and
winter. When fish don't know where to be
or what to do, it's hard for you to figure out
where and how to fish. When this type of
weather wackiness happens, there's not a
whole lot we can do to change it. Instead, if
you want to catch fish, you've got to
find ways to deal with it. I
can hear you now:
"Josh, it


U


would really help if you gave me some
concrete examples.":' Since that's exactly what
I was planning to do, I guess I will.
One key is to cover more water, because
fish aren't really holding anywhere. You
might work a creek mouth or a set of
potholes with no success, and then find a
bunch offish in those exact same spots an
hour later on your way back. There are fish
out there, but trying to figure out exactly
where they'll be is a gamble you are likely to
lose. Stay on the hunt and don't give up.
Another trick is to get outside your
comfort zone and try fishing some new
spots. Go ahead and give your old standbys a
shot, but if there's nobody home, look some-
where that you haven't before. If I were you,
I'd see if I could find some deeper cuts or
holes in areas of shallow water. Those types
of locations are fish magnets. You might
even find a few new favorite honeyholes.
Normally, we'd be switching over to shrimp
this time of year. But the
..... ...... ........ ..........


shrimp are still running small and a lot less
abundant than we'd like, so the fish haven't
really started to key in on them yet. And the
whitebait are gone. Now what? Cutbait. A
chunk of ladyfish, mullet or sardine has scent
appeal, which will draw in fish that are trying
to fatten up a bit for winter. Redfish and
snook love cutbait, and lately even the trout
have been interested in it.
So how long is this oddness going to
continue? No one can really say. Last winter,
we had warmer weather and great fishing
pretty much the whole way through, except
for a few days here and there when fronts
pushed through. That probably won't be
the case again this year, but I can't say that
for sure. Most likely, it's going to get cold
at some point. If and when it does, the fish
should slip into their normal winter patterns.
If you fish this area, you know that odd
things happen all the time. Sometimes it
seems that odd things happen more than
normal things. Even so, I've noticed some
extra weirdnesses lately. The other day, we

trout fishing in Pine Island Sound. It ate a Lil
John. We thought it was a small cobia until
we brought it into the boat and saw the
sucker pad on the head. What the heck was a
remora doing out there?
Then we caught a 4-pound mangrove
snapper on one of the nearshore reefs,
along with eight more 15-inchers and a
spinner shark. I expect that kind of fishing
in September, but September was three
months ago. These fish need a calendar.
Since that's never going to happen, it's
up to us to figure out how to catch confused
fish. It might take a little more work and a
little more hunting around, but it definitely
can be done if you're up to the challenge.

Sheepies take



all kind of bait


FREE TOWING, FUEL DROPS,

24/7 NATIONWIDE COVERAGE,
L KNOWLEDGEABLE CAPTAINS,


There's a certain sense of adventure that comes
with catching your own sheepshead bait, and it's
part of what makes targeting this winter staple so
much fun.
Chasing around fiddler crabs or trying to throw a
castnet on them, flipping over rocks to look for mud
crabs or pistol shrimp, finding an untouched piling
with an abundance of big barnacles on it, scraping
limpets off rocks at the Venice jetties, collecting
tube worms or digging for sand fleas on the beach.
These are some of the pre-fishing festivities that are
almost as enjoyable as catching the fish.
So what's the best bait for sheepshead? That's a
tricky question, and there are a couple of factors that
have to be considered, but ...
Until recently I would have told you without any
hesitation that you can't beat mud crabs. They're
easy to catch, stay on a hook well and have produced
some of the most consistent bites from sheepies I've
overseen.
But then I had the best sheepshead fishing day
of my life using barnacles. The fish simply could not
resist the offering. If my bait was in the water longer
than two or three minutes without a bite I would
reel in thinking I'd been picked clean. Yes, the fishing
was that good.
So was the bait that good or was it the bite? The
answer is probably both. And while it was one of
those days that the fish were actively feeding on
both the outgoing and incoming tides, there was
one big difference. In the early part of the day I was
using fiddler crabs, and while I was catching fish
it wasn't an impressive number and they were all
undersized. When I switched to barnacles I had my
first two keepers in 20 minutes and the biggest fish I
landed was 17 inches.
I also have to factor in scraping the pilings, a
way to chum sheepshead, into that day's equation.
Let's just say I'm a believer in that technique when
coupled with using barnacles.
As for the other aforementioned baits? You
can catch fish on all of them. But think about the

natural feeding habits of sheepshead in their winter
habitats. They hang out around pilings, cruising up
and down and nipping off barnacles. You can watch
them doing this in spots where the water is clear
like Placida. So a lot of the effectiveness of using
barnacles for bait is just plain Mother Nature.
I have a theory that barnacles work best when
sheepshead are being extremely picky. So if crabs
or shrimp are not working, it's time to switch to
barnies. Or"bonnies" if you're from up north.
If you want to go a little more off the beaten bait
path, you've got options. Ever seen a sea roach? Yup,
those little creepy-crawlies running around on rocks
when the tide is low can catch sheepshead too. And
they're actually crustaceans, not insects.
I've also heard of some anglers who swear by
worms. You know, like the kind you use to catch
freshwater panfish. I've still got to put this theory to
the test along with Skittles and other bizarre baits
- but in all likelihood it probably works.
What are yourfavorite sheepshead baits? If you
use something not mentioned here or have an
unusual and effective bait, drop me a line!
Until next time, hook'em up and fight'em hard.
Fish on, fellow anglers.

Let's be honest. I would like to be
able to go out and buy a boat. But I
can't. They're just too expensive. Maybe
someday, but not anytime soon. But a
paddleboard falls right into my budget.
You can take it almost anywhere, and you
can get a good workout on one. You can
even fish on one. They can make a pretty
good holiday present, without breaking
the bank account.
Before you buy a paddleboard, there are
some things to take into consideration.
First, what do you want to do with your
paddleboard? There are various sports that
beginners can explore using a stand-up
paddleboard. Touring and paddle surfing
are the most common. However, advanced
paddlers are taking SUP to a new level
with racing. Yoga and fitness classes on
the water are also gaining popularity.
Paddleboard companies realize the
demand for these growing sports, and
are making models specific to them. The
boards are made with different dimen-
sions depending on the sport. Before
making an investment in a paddleboard,
consider your ambitions.
Second, it's not about the brand! Look


beyond the brands and focus on dimen- commonly purchased are stock board
sions and materials used to make the models. Stock boards vary in size from 7
paddleboards. Most paddleboards are to 14 feet long
made with a foam core and hard epoxy and are typically
shell. The foam core creates the boards between 30 to
shape, makes it lighter and 33 inches wide.

are different types Beginners usually advance fast, and desire
of boards, and the most more from the basic stock board as their


skills increase. Touring boards are ideal for
intermediate paddlers pursuing distance.
These boards are usually lighter than stock
boards, and are shaped differently. Some
models feature a nose rocker that elevates
the board up after waves. Racing models are
targeted toward intermediate to advanced
paddlers. There are three classes for racing: 12
feet 6 inches and under, 14 feet and anything
over 14 feet is considered unlimited. Shaped
more like boat hulls, racing models are
narrower and will increase your speed.
Try before you buy! Always demo
the board that you are interested in
purchasing to make sure it's a good fit
for you. SUP Englewood is offering free
paddleboard demos at Stump Pass Beach
State Park from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every
Sunday this month. Various models of SUP
Englewood and SUP ATX paddleboards will
be available for demos.

Rows of rods, cases of reels and endress aisles
of baits. Decisions, decisions. What exactly does
the bass angler need outside of the boat, motor,
trolling motor and electronics to catch bass? This
can be an answer that takes on a different form,
depending on how you fish and where you fish.
Some people buy rods and reels based
on favorite brands. Some like a certain feel,
others buy these items because they look
cool or have great commercials boosting their
product. No matter which way you go when it
comes to buying rods and reels, make sure you
pick equipment coming from a company that
services your needs in the event of a failure. By
failure, I mean something like a broken rod, or
a reel that has a part go bad and you can't get
it replaced or fixed. Those things, if not bought
from a reputable company, will result in a loss of
funds on your part.
I've owned just about every rod made over
the years I've been fishing. Some were high-tech
rods, some not much more expensive than a
cane pole. I've broken just about every rod at
least once, and I can tell you, not all companies
service their product like you would hope. So,
keep that in mind as you shop for your bass
fishing equipment.
As far as selecting certain rods, or the number
of rods you need, think about the style of fishing
you do the most. If you like to slow fish with
plastics and cast to edges, rods with a medium
to heavy action are probably your best choice,
preferably 6- to 7-feet in length. These rods
allow you to cast the bait with enough distance
to keep you near the spots you want to fish
most. If you like to throw crank baits, a bigger
rod is your best choice, but you should look for
a medium action rod. The key to catching bass
with a cranking rod is to make sure the action
is light enough to not rip the hooks out of the
basses mouth, but flexible enough to play the
bigger fish once you do get them hooked. The
medium action also allows you to cast it greater
distances.
Top water rods can vary in length depending
on the bait you are throwing. The one thing I
look for is a rod with a quick tip. By that, I mean
the first six to ten inches of the rod are very
flexible. This allows you to twitch the bait, or
jerk the bait, without moving it great distances.
This gives a top water bait the best action, and
makes the bait much more real. Spinner baits
need to be thrown on a medium or medium
heavy action rod. I like to cast spinner baits in
and around cover, and at times, I prefer the
stiffer action rod. I do like scaling down to a
smaller rod. This allows me to be more accurate
with my casts when I fish in and around cover.
When selecting a reel, you have two different
style reels available for bass fishing in two


different types of retrieves. You have spinning
reels and you have bait casting reels. You have
fast retrieving reels, and slow retrieving reels.
The trick is to know which reels fit your way of
fishing. Some anglers prefer using spinning reels
over bait casting reels. Just make sure you make
the proper selection with your retrieval ability.
Reels have gear ratios that cannot be ignored
when selecting a reel for a specific way of
fishing. The one big factor to keep in mind is
this: If the bait needs to be moved slow, like a
soft plastic worm where the rod tip creates the
majority of the movement, you want a higher
gear ratio. This will allow you to pick up any
slack line quickly, and in the event you're fishing
around cover, will allow you to get that bass
away from anything that may break your line.
If you're fishing a moving bait, such as a crank
bait or spinner bait, you want a gear ratio that
is lower. You want to be able to have absolute
control when retrieving these baits. A reel that
has a high gear ratio may make the bait look
unnatural in the water. A slower retrieving reel
will allow you to have that control and retrieve
your bait back at the speed that keeps in looking
real.
I prefer a bait casting reel for everything
except fishing my drop-shot rig. The bait caster
allows me accurate casting when fishing around
vegetation. It's just easier to control the flight of
the bait and stop it when needed. The spinning
reel is great for distance when you don't want
to get up on fish, or are out in an open water
setting.
When it comes to the number of rods and
reels that you actually need to have, that's
personal preference. It's based on the style
of fishing you do, and how often you like to
switch your gear. I hate it. I have 13 different
set ups that I carry, and three or four are simply
worming or soft plastic rigs. When I break off
a bait, I simply grab another rod and use it,
because it is already rigged. I carry rods for crank
baits, spinner baits, swim baits, top water baits,
Carolina rigs and a drop-shot rod. You could say
that I'm prepared for anything that will come
my way that day.
Again, numbers are a preference based on
the individual, but rods and reels for certain
styles of fishing should never be ignored. Go
through your inventory of rods and reels and see
if yours match up with the style of fishing that
I've linked them to. You never know, the proper
combination could put more bass in your live
well.

A little whimsy,






goes a long way


Sailboats race to a corrected time based on
their design and record of results. The rules of
racing are copious and infractions are dealt
with by a committee of rules experts. Serious
racers enjoy this complexity and the on water
application of the rules. To other sailors, the
complexity is a barrier too high, and racing
is shunned. Sail clubs can be divided into
"them" versus "us.":' But apply some whimsy,
and both camps can enjoy the event. That
pretty much sums up the Picture of Beer Race
- a little whimsy goes a long way.
Formalized by the Punta Gorda Sailing
Club in 1995 as the Pitcher of Beer, the
concept was a distance race that ended in
a raft up of boats and a pitcher of beer at
Cabbage Key for the winner. The"also ran's"
bought the pitcher and the winner had to
chug it. The course was from Peace River
marker 1 to marker 4 due north of Bokeelia.
Boats started together and their finish time
was corrected by performance rating to
determine the lucky winner. The winner had
to organize the next year's event.
The second year's race announcement
listed it as the Picture of Beer. The name
stuck and Susan Vielhauer made a sketch
of a beer pitcher to present to the winner.
In 1999, Jerry Marchetti attached a pewter
pitcher to a wood base that has become
the traveling award. By 2003, the race had
evolved into a fun sail event that could
appeal to racers and cruisers. New to the
club, unaware of the traditions, Faye and
I set spinnaker at the start and won. Our


smiles moderated when given "congratula-
tions, you run the event next year.":'
This year's race had a Cuban theme, and
perhaps the highest whimsy content yet.
Each boat was given three limes at the start
line. At least one lime had to be placed in
a dingy at the finish line for the boat to be
scored and eligible for the trophy, and a gift
lottery at the post race celebration. There
was also a contest for best Cuban garb at
the celebration.
With all the peripheral entertainment
and eye candy, you might think no one was
seriously racing wrong! Almost all of the
23 boats crossed the start line together at 10
a.m., and with good speed. There was a mix
of seasoned racers and true cruising boats
with all the amenities including dinghies. At
about 11:30 a.m. the wind speed dropped,
and when Mariner rounded the last marker
around noon, it was a slow go with fortunate
assistance from the ebb tide. The finish order
was Mariner, Sun Chaser and Journey On.
The celebration dinner, held at Gasparilla
Marina, had nearly 100 in attendance. The
crew of Mariner drank from the pitcher and
there was music, raffles and dancing. By
tradition, the crew of Mariner has to format
and manage the event next year. Not your
typical day of sailing. Just add a pinch of
whimsy.

Like most other fishermen who have spent
years with a rod in their hands, I don't usually get
super excited about reeling in a fish. I've caught
a whole lot of fish in Southwest Florida over the
past 17 years, and it's getting pretty rare for me
to have a "first." So when I have the opportunity
to watch someone catch their first fish of a partic-
ular species or even their first fish ever I
truly enjoy it. It reminds me of how lucky I have
been when I get to see that experience through
someone else's eyes.
That was brought back to the forefront last
week when I went out to one of the local reefs
with Fishin' Frank Senior and Vinny Madsen, the
new guy working at the tackle shop. Frank and
I are old hands at this, but Vinny is fairly new to
fishing here and has a lot of firsts still in front
of him. The first I was there for was a Goliath
grouper. He's been trying to catch one for a while
now, but hadn't been able to make it happen
until he hooked an 80-pounder last Friday. It was
a good reminder of what it's like to get really
excited about fishing.
Of course, I was new once. My uncle took me
to El Jobean when I first visited this area in 1985.
I caught my first blacktip shark not huge,
maybe 30 inches. I caught my first trout with him,
my biggest snook, my first sheepshead. A dozen
years later, after I'd learned a whole lot more
about local fishing, I was able to take him and his
son out and put him on his first cobia. I also was
there when he caught his first big tarpon at the
U.S. 41 bridge. That was truly awesome to be able
to pay him back like that.
My wife Kristie and I went to Hawaii to
get married. I figured I couldn't
pass up the opportunity
sto sample their
fishing (after all,
when would I be
in Hawaii again?)
so we booked a blue-
water trolling trip. I was
just like what I'd seen on TV.
I married a girl who didn't like to
fish, so I told her to take the first
fish that got hooked, hoping she'd
get hooked too. But I didn't count
on the first fish to be a marlin. She
took the rod, did everything perfect
because she listened to the captain's
instructions, and landed a 300-pounder. The
captain got on the radio and learned everyone
else had zeroed, even on mahi. Kristie still doesn't
like fishing, but she does like telling that story.

I've watched my two cousins April and Elyse
(yes, they're girls) catch their first sharks. While
we were fishing with Capt. Angel Torres, Elyse
caught her first really big shark a 9.5-foot
lemon. That fish kicked her butt, but she was a
real trooper and got it in by herself Who says
girls can't fish? Not me; I know better. I've also
witnessed them catching their first tarpon, and
they handled those like champs too. It doesn't get
much better than that.
Fishing runs in the family, apparently. In my
immediate family, Dad was the fisherman. But
I've got to give Mom credit she was the one
who stopped at the bait shop on her way home
from work to buy me lures, or worms, or water
dogs (which became pets, because they were
too cool to use for bait). Mom visits every year,
but she never goes out on the water. A few years
ago, I asked Capt. Angel if he would mind taking
her out to see the Harbor one afternoon after
his charter. We planned to go down the west
wall, maybe see a manatee or two, and just
enjoy whatever was out there.
Well, we came across a school of ladyfish
busting on the surface, near where Angel had
been catching some sharks. I asked Mom if she
wanted to try catching a shark. She said it would
take too long, but we told her we could put out a
couple baits for 15 minutes and try. Angel whis-
pered to me, "It won't even take 5 minutes -
they've been thick'" And he was right that bait
was barely in the water when the reel went off.
That was incredible, to see her so excited
like that. Mom is truly a lady and usually very
restrained, and she doesn't curse (unlike her
potty-mouth son). But she was so over the moon
she let a couple f-bombs slip when she actually
saw the shark. That wasn't just her first shark; it
was her first fish. To share that with her, and with
Angel, was one of the most incredible experiences
of my life. I will always treasure that memory.
If you have the opportunity to go fishing, you're
fortunate. If you have the opportunity to fish
in Southwest Florida on a regular basis, you are
truly blessed. It's human nature to become jaded
and to forget how lucky we really are. Watching
someone experience our amazing fishing for the
first time is a fantastic reminder of what it's like.
Take your neighbor, or your grandkids, or whoever
out on the water it's not a bad thing.

Now that the results of a feasibility study
for an aquarium in downtown Punta Gorda
are in, the big questions on everyone's mind
is: Can proponents raise enough money to
bring such a project to fruition, and who has
coffers deep enough to support their vision?
The answers appear to depend on how
folks interpret the consultant's findings -
released Thursday which conclude that an
aquarium is feasible downtown on the former
City Marketplace site, but the price tag to
develop and keep the aquarium afloat would
cost as much as $67 million.
Those who see the aquarium tank as
half-full make the case that the information
provided by the study, while valuable, was
incomplete, because it doesn't take into
account pertinent variables that support the
aquarium's sustainability, including more
competitive entry fees, attendance from
nearby attractions, and staffing levels that are
more on par with aquariums in the region.
By adjusting some of the study's calcula-
tion, potentially partnering with another
tourism attraction and reducing the size
and scope of the Punta Gorda aquarium as
presented by ConsultEcon the firm hired
by the Charlotte Harbor Aquarium committee
to study the matter supporters show in a
two-page sensitivity analysis that the project
is not only doable, but it even could turn a
profit.
"By tweaking some of these variables, it
can at least be a break-even or a positive
(bottom line);' aquarium committee member
Tom Kerr said. "Then you're talking about
trying to raise $32 million to build the
aquarium, as opposed to $65 million:'
But those who see the tank as half-empty


a day-to-day basis, then the fundraising campaign can get underway. I mean, it's been done elsewhere."--
Punta Gorda City Manager Howard Kunik
"Mostly this is a local issue. As far as funding from the state, I wouldn't be optimistic about it. The community
would have to be united across the spectrum to support the project. Whether that support is there or not, has
to be determined."- state Rep. Ken Roberson, R-Port Charlotte
*"The (penny) sales tax generates currently about $18 million per year. From my perspective, could (an
aquarium) be ruled out or could it go on the list (of projects to be funded)? I think it could go on the list, but it
would really be up to the community. We have a $300 million deficit in projects that we either need to build
or we have already started, but we don't have the money for all the different elements. There are projects that
have been in the queue for years. So the answer is: Could you do it? Yes. But is that what the community and
policymakers want? I'm not sure."- Charlotte County Administrator Ray Sandrock
*"is $60 million feasible? I don't know the fundraising capacity of this community. I need to see the business
model and see a return on investment analysis!'- Charlotte County Economic Development Director
Tom Patton


call the project a pipe dream that, while
noble, needs to be thrown back in the water.
"It's like the craziness of putting that
water park in the middle of Murdock;'former
Punta Gorda mayor Bill Albers said about an
idea that's been floated, but has yet to gain
traction. "It seems clear now that the size of
our community or the demographics of it will
not support an aquarium. I think it's time to
say: 'It's been fun, but it's time to pull the plug
and move on!"
According to the ConsultEcon study, a
50,000-square-foot aquarium with 250,000
gallons of water could generate between
134,000 and 341,000 attendees annually,
with a mid-range annual attendance of
238,000, composed of local residents, as well
as out-of-town visitors.
The $55,000 study concludes that
supporters would have to raise between $60
million and $67 million. Of that, up to $37
million would be needed for development,
including acquisition of the site


and construction.
About $30 million would be needed in
the form of an operating endowment, the
study finds, to cover a potential $1.5 million
annual shortfall between the cost to operate
the facility and the revenue it brings in.
ConsultEcon estimates the aquarium will
earn $3 million a year, based on its projected
attendance.
Using that information and the sensi-
tivity analysis it prepared, Charlotte Harbor
Aquarium committee members now will
begin to shop for vendors, or professional
aquarium operators who see the potential of
the area.
"Before you start fundraising, you have
to have the vendor;' Kerr said. "You have to
have the name of who is going to build the
aquarium to help you do the fundraising, so
we need to find out who would be interested
first.
"And then, when we find out who is
interested, we would have to do a fundraising


analysis with their name to find out what kind
of support we could get:'
Kerr said the committee plans to reach out
to area vendors like the Florida Aquarium, as
well as others across the country.
In the meantime, Mote Marine Laboratory,
which operates a working aquarium in Sara-
sota and initially had pledged support for the
project, has pulled back, saying that while it
won't put its name on the facility, it "remains
committed to working with Charlotte Harbor
communities to strengthen its science educa-
tion and research programs in the region:'
"Mote will continue our discussions with
community and business leaders on how our
existing education and research programs
throughout the Charlotte Harbor region can
be enhanced and better support the long-
term sustainable use of the fisheries and
other natural resources of the region, while
increasing the overall level of ocean literacy
among residents and visitors alike;' said
Michael P. Crosby, Mote Marine Laboratory
president and CEO.
Committee members have started discus-
sions with city and county officials about
other possible funding sources, including
tourism tax and infrastructure sales tax
dollars which would have to go in front of
the citizenry for a vote and state grants.
The outlook, local officials said, isn't bright.
"1 wouldn't be optimistic about it at this
point;' state Rep. Ken Roberson, R-Port Char-
lotte, about state funding. "We are projecting
an $800 million surplus, but half of that is
nonrecurring funds, and everybody is putting
requests for what's out there.
"The big question is sustainability,"
Roberson added. "Say you raise the money
and do it. Is it going to sustain itself once it
gets built?"

Staff Report
On any given
The fish you will find at Port Charlotte-based Harbor Seafood day there are 10

tough time finding it anywhere nearby. types of fish
For the past seven years, owners Maralee McGowen and Tony available.
Millan have been serving Southwest Florida seafood fanatics !
the freshest local fish available in these parts. How do you know
it's fresh? Because they get their catch from local commercial
fishermen.
Capt. Tom McLaughlin owns and operates his own commercial
vessel for grouper, snapper, amberjack and other delicacies from
the Gulf. He sells that fish to Harbor Seafood.
"He does a good job for us'" says Bob Davis, manager of
Harbor Seafood. "He works pretty hard out there, but he always
delivers for us."
Once fresh fish is delivered, an on-site fillet specialist slices up
the fish to customer specifications. Stone crabs
"I used to do a lot of cutting, but it's easier to bring in and shrimp.
somebody to do it," Bob says. "I paid my dues back in the day."
In addition to local fish, Harbor Seafood also carries salmon, .
mahi-mahi, flounder, cod, swordfish and tuna. Of course, they
can special order as well.
"We'll be getting in some monkfish in a few weeks;' Bob says. i
"If it's available, we can get it."
If fish isn't your cup of tea, Maralee makes sure there is plenty
of shrimp this time of year. She also makes sure that clams, stone iH
crabs, scallops and oysters are on hand.
"Half of our seafood is local, and half is imported from other
areas" Maralee says."There are strict guidelines we must follow,
and those guidelines are always changing. Right now, it's impos-
sible to get oysters from the Panhandle. So instead, we get them
from Texas'."
Maralee also helps operate Tortuga's Seafood Restaurant in Punta
Gorda, and you can bet she serves up the latest catch every day.
"I really like educating people about our local seafood," Maralee
says."What I would really like to do is team up with an organiza-
tion like the Peace River Wildlife Center and have a night where
we serve up local seafood, and raise awareness and for a good ...
cause. If we want to keep enjoying our local seafood, we have to .
be responsible.":' i'

The Miami Herald
MIAMI Eleven of the short-finned pilot
whales that survived an original stranding a
week ago along a remote beach in Ever-
glades National Park swam more than 70
miles only to die just feet apart from each
other on another remote beach in the lower
Florida Keys.
A fisherman reported finding the
mammals on Snipes Point, about six miles
north of Sugar Loaf Key, which is 15 miles or
so from Key West.
While it remains a mystery why a pod
of about 51 whales initially stranded in
shallow water more than 20 miles from
their deep water home range, it was not
surprising a few members ended up south in
the Lower Keys, said Blair Mase, southeast
marine mammal stranding network coordi-
nator for NOAA Fisheries.
"Basically, it is history repeating itself,";'
she said, citing other pilot whale strandings
that have occurred along the island chain.
"Due to the makeup of the currents and
geography, they continue to drift southward
and end up in the general facility of that
location.":'
This brings the total of known dead
whales to 22, with the other 29 unaccounted
for. Last week, seven were found dead and
another four were euthanized at the original
stranding location at Highland Beach, which
is an hour's boat ride from the nearest boat
ramp at Flamingo Marina in the national
park.
Mase said it's quite possible more of the
whales will wind up dead in the backcountry
of the Keys.
"We just don't know what's going on in
this group,;' she said.
The Coast Guard auxiliary has been
conducting aerial searches of the area for


more of the pod but has not located any
more mammals in the Keys.
There was hope that the majority of the
whales might survive the stranding after
about 33 of them were spotted nine miles
north of Highland Beach in water up to 18
feet deep. But instead of continuing in that
direction to water hundreds of feet deep, at
least 20 of the whales reversed course and
began heading south in waters that remain
shallow along the Keys.
A group of vets, biologists and volunteers
from NOAA Fisheries and the non-profit
groups Marine Mammal Conservancy of Key
Largo and Marine Mammal Rescue Society
of North Miami traveled to Snipe Points to
perform necropsies on the dead. The initial
results will not be known for two weeks and
the complete result will not be available for
months.
The vets are testing for possible diseases,
including the morbillivirus that has killed
hundreds of dolphins along the Atlantic
coast this year. They also are testing for
contaminants and biotoxins.
But from visual inspection, all 11 whales
found on Snipes Point appear to be emaci-
ated and malnourished, which could be
caused by either disease and/or from being
in shallow water for so long, Mase said.
While there was a large rescue response
by air, land and sea of federal, state and
local wildlife officials, as well as the volun-
teer groups, it is not known if their efforts
and resources led to any survivors.
One animal activist who has been
involved in previous mass strandings said
the rescue effort should have been more
proactive, with the whales herded to deeper
water on the first day of the mass response
with oil boom and plastic fencing.
"They simply observed these animals to
death, and burned a lot of fuel doing it.'
marine mammal activist Russ Rector said.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico Roberto Reyes
grabbed the bright orange buoy and steadied
his breath as sharp columns of hazy sunlight
pierced the green seawater beneath him,
fading before they reached the depths that
he was about to explore off Puerto Rico's
northwest coast.
The 50-year-old freediver took a final deep
breath as he plunged with arms outstretched,
propelling himself downward until his long,
black fins became tiny black dots and then
disappeared into the abyss.


"You're aware that it's very dangerous;' he
said afterward with a quick smile. "It becomes
an addiction'."
The recent death of a New York man while
freediving in the Bahamas highlights the
dangers of the sport, with some 70 freediving
deaths recorded worldwide last year, up from
more than 50 the previous year, according to
the North Carolina-based Divers Alert Network,
which believes many other deaths went
unreported.
At the same time, freediving is growing in
popularity as more people than ever seek to
test the limits of human endur-
ance despite the risks. 0

Fans of the sport say it's an adrenaline rush to
plunge without an oxygen tank to staggering
depths, using weights or relying on gravity
alone, and see how long they can remain
underwater before what can be the hardest
part: coming back up. Competitive freedivers
have set records including diving to 182 meters
(597 feet) on a single breath or remaining static
underwater for nearly 12 minutes.
"It's just the ultimate way to really challenge
yourself;'said Mark Healey, a professional big
wave surfer from Hawaii and a renowned free-
diver, in a phone interview. "It feels good, that
feeling of overcoming and pushing yourself
and finding out you're capable of things that
you've never been capable of before'."
Freediving is the fastest growing segment of
the diving industry, according to Grant Graves,
former president of the U.S. Apnea Association,
which oversees the sport. It can take many
forms, with some participants wearing weights
to help them navigate under water.
He said people are drawn to it in part
because not much equipment is required and
classes have become more available in regions
such as the Caribbean.
"It's masks, fins and a wetsuit, and you
can have a go at it"Graves said. "It does an
amazing job of connecting people with their
bodies, and what their bodies are capable of in
the water. ... You can do things that were not
thought possible ever in really the first day or
two of training.":'
Healey, who has dived to 156 feet (48
meters), said one of his students beat him at
staying underwater on one breath even while
still learning the basics of the sport.
"There was one girl right next to me who
absolutely smoked me in the pool session;' he
said.
Still, the dangers are clear. Physicist Neal
Pollock, research director of the Diver's Alert
Network, said the number of recorded deaths
is likely only a quarter of all freediving deaths
that actually occur.
"There are probably a lot of freediving
deaths that are registered as drownings;' said
Pollock, who practices the sport recreationally.
High-profile freediving casualties include
California surfer Jay Moriarity, who was the
basis for the movie "Chasing Mavericks;' and
French record-setter Audrey Mestre, who died
in the Dominican Republic in 2002 while trying
to emerge from a 171-meter (561 feet) dive
when a balloon that she was going to use to
propel her to the surface apparently failed.
Puerto Rican freediver Reyes, who trained
with Mestre, said he always takes precautions,


12 soft-shell crabs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp tarragon
1/8 tsp garlic powder


including diving with a partner and slowly
testing his limits.
At formal freediving competitions, only one
death has been recorded in the last 20 years,
according to the Swiss-based Association
International pour le Developpement de
I'Apnee, or AIDA, the worldwide federation for
breath-hold diving.
New York-based freediver Nicholas Mevoli
was that casualty. He surfaced with breathing
problems and lost consciousness during a
Nov. 17 competition at a popular freediving
spot called Dean's Blue Hole in the Bahamas.
The authorities did not release the autopsy
report, but said his death was consistent with
drowning. AIDA officials have said they believe
the 32-year-old diver suffered a depth-related
injury to his lungs.
The association said it is reviewing the
accident to determine how serious injuries can
be prevented. Freediving record holder Alexey
Molchanov, whose mother also currently holds
seven freediving records, said the association
should also perform medical tests on athletes
before and after diving.
"(Mevoli) was pushing himself, and he had
injuries from previous diving;' Molchanov said
in a phone interview from Russia. "Now we
know that there are people who can push so
much that they don't pay attention to lung
injuries.":'
The divers' heart rates slow and their lungs
become squeezed while underwater, with
fluids shifting to fill that vacuum, Pollock said.
That's why freedivers will sometimes spit up
blood.
In addition, some divers underestimate the
time it takes to surface after reaching certain
depths.
"If you make bigger jumps, you may not
know you are in major trouble until it's waytoo
late;' Pollock said.
The human body can tolerate deep dives
through training and practice, but safety
thresholds are different for every person, he
said.
"There's a science to freediving, but it is an
art;' he said. "Not everyone can do the same
thing.":'
Reyes said he trains his students in the pool
first, asking them to give him a thumbs-up
underwater when he taps them to make sure
they're doing well. When someone fails to do
that, he pulls them out, fearing a blackout.
"It looks very simple, but it goes beyond
that;' Reyes said. "If you do it once, it's addic-
tive. It feels so good that your body is asking
you to return to the ocean'."

The little man to list your boe! oday! _--
.._ a_._a aa W127


Armadillos aren't very popular. Homeowners
dislike them because they have a habit of
digging small pits all over a lawn. Nighttime
drivers aren't fond of the way an armadillo will
wander onto the highway, completely heedless
of oncoming vehicles. Dogs despise them, just
because. Also, armadillos can carry leprosy. Is it
any wonder they have few friends?
Yet armadillos are survivors. Despite
sometimes concerted effort to shoot them into
extinction, and the frequent sight of dead ones
lying on the asphalt, these animals are still
plentiful. Why is it that some creatures seem to
do well in spite of no one caring about them,
while some of the ones that have the most
charisma and legions of fans are in danger of
vanishing?
One word: Adaptability. Raccoons, white-
tailed deer, doves, possums, gray squirrels and
armadillos (at least the nine-banded armadillo,
which is the only species you'll find in the U.S.)
are all species that have adapted well to the
dramatic changes humans have made to their
environment over the past 300 years. Agricul-
ture has been very good for armadillos, which
are mostly insect eaters. When they dig holes
in your lawn, they're digging up beetle larvae
that would otherwise eat your grass from the
roots. Many other things are also on the menu
- small reptiles, bird eggs, fungi, sometimes
even carrion.
Armadillos have weak, peglike teeth and
can't do much damage by biting, but they can
sure tear up an attacker with their powerful
claws if the need arises. There are few preda-
tors that can get into the tough shell and make
a meal of them. Florida panthers, black bears
and coyotes can, but there just aren't enough
of these animals around to make a serious dent
in armadillo populations, which have a high
expansion rate.
A female armadillo is mature after one year
and will produce offspring annually. Unlike
most other mammals, which have a highly
variable litter size, armadillos almost always
have four young at a time. The fertilized egg
splits into four parts, each of which develops


armored one," sometimes translated
as"little man in armor."
*The nine-banded armadillo is one
of about 20 species of armadillos.
The rest all live in Mexico and Central
and South America.
The smallest armadillo is the 6-inch
fairy armadillo. The largest is the
100-pound giant armadillo.
Armadillos are the last repre-
sentatives of an ancient group of
mammals that includes the extinct
glyptodonts, some of which weighed
thousands of pounds.
Glyptodonts lived in Florida during
the last ice age, and gyptodont fossils
are fairly common finds locally.

its own placenta. The baby'dillos are identical
quadruplets. This quirk of nature has made
them candidates for scientific research when a
number of identical animals are required.
When they're born, the young have shells
that are soft and pliable, like leather. By the
time they're weaned at three months, their
shells have gotten quite hard and bony. They'll
hang out with their mother for as long as a
year, after which they leave to establish their
own territories. Because armadillos don't like
to share turf females especially the
juveniles sometimes have to range far afield
to find their own place. That's one reason why
armadillos have been spreading across the
southeastern United States surprisingly quickly.
According to Columbia University's Intro-
duced Species Summary Project,
until 1849 there were no arma- .0p

dillos north of the Rio Grande. Instead, they
ranged from northern Mexico to northern
Argentina.
The animals began to expand into Texas
and other parts of the desert Southwest
following the decimation of predator popula-
tions there. Some researchers claim that the
animals that colonized Florida were escapees
from zoos or circuses; others say natural
range expansion brought them here. Even
if they did hitch a ride to get here, they'd
probably be in Florida by way of natural
expansion by this time. Regardless of how
it happened, it's a fact that there are now
armadillos from New Mexico to Nebraska
to North Carolina. Future range expansion
will be limited by cold armadillos are not
hibernators but it's expected that they
could push as far north as NewYork.
It's true that some armadillos carry
leprosy. It hasn't been documented in
Florida specimens, but as many as
10 percent of the animals in the western
part of their range may be carriers. Arma-
dillos are the only creatures besides humans
",that have been found to not only carry
'''. *'I '


but also show signs of illness from leprosy,
though they rarely live long enough to
become debilitated by it. But leprosy is an
Old World disease, and armadillos live only
in the New World. How did they get leprosy
in the first place? From humans. So the 50
or so cases each year of armadillo-to-human
leprosy transmission are really just a cases
of givesies-backsies.
My grandfather grew up in Florida in the
Depression years. Back then, armadillos
were sometimes called "Hoover hogs;'
because the meat tastes a lot like pork and
in honor of the much-hated president many
felt was to blame for their poverty. Grandpa
told me that armadillo roasted in its own
shell isn't bad, but if you have to clean one
you probably won't have much appetite
afterwards. I just took his word for it.
Whether you consider them native or not,
armadillos have become one of the most
recognizable of Florida's animal species, and
one of those that you're most likely to see
out and about. Next time you see one, tip
your hat to the little man in armor and let
him beon his way.

ISlowly getting solunarI



slowly getting soluner


If you've ever read the solunar table in this fine
publication, you've likely noticed that at the bottom
of each day is a prediction. Terms like average, best,
better and even better++ are used. If you check
out the table this week (page 29, just to help you
out) you will notice the prediction says"The BEST."'
It actually said "The Season's Best;' but it looked like
chickenscratch by the time I squeezed every letter
onto the same line. So I had to make a crucial decision
to abbreviate it down to two words. I think I chose
the correct words -"The BEST." In case you didn't or
haven't noticed, I even capitalized the word "BEST,";'
just to add a little pizazz. But just exactly what does
that prediction mean? You mean to tell me that the
fishing this upcoming Tuesday is the best it gets?
So what is a solunar table? It's a table that shows
you when the moon is rising and setting. At a quick
glance, you can get an idea of what fishing could be
like on a particular day and decide when the best
time is for you to go out. Fish have feeding times,
just like us. These tables help us find those feeding
times for particular locations based on the sun and
moon.
The most important parts of the table are the
"major" and "minor" columns. These are broken
down into a.m. and p.m.
Major feeding periods are two hours long,
centered on the solunar time you see in your time
table. If you have a major time of 6:30 a.m., then
you would want to be at your location no later than
5:30 a.m. and remain there until at least 7:30 a.m.
Minor feeding periods are only 1 hour long. That
means a minor time of 6:30 p.m. would require you
to be fishing no later than 6 p.m. and remain until
7p.m.
We'll get into the solunar tables more in upcoming
issues. For starters, take a look at the chart labeled
"Solunar 101:" And just remember, there is a reason
next Tuesday's prediction is "The BEST.":'


1. Locate the day that you plan to hunt or fish on the
calendar. This is often located horizontally on the top of
the calendar or on the left side listed vertically.

2. Locate the moon data on the day you've chosen.
This is typically listed as"moon data'""moonset"or
"moonrise." Look for the indication of moon position
and time within the data such as"overhead moon time"
or"underfoot moon time.":' For fishing and hunting, the
moon position plays a critical role in activity, according
to the solunar theory. A directly overhead or directly
underfoot moon generally spawns greater activity.

3. Identify the moon phase. This is listed on all solunar
calendars. These will typically have a success percentage
listed under the phase. For example, a prime day to hunt
or fish will be a full moon or new moon, while the least
successful days are a quarter or three-quarter moon.
This is because the moon and sun's gravitational pull is
strongest when directly above or below the head.

4. Identify the major and minor periods. These are
listed in time frames, typically under the moon phase
data. These indicate the peak times for predicted activity
based on the position and phase of the moon and the
time of sunset. For example: A calendar day that has a
100 percent success prediction rating or a "best" rating
will have a major or minor period that occurs within 30
minutes to an hour of sunset, and the moon will also
be setting, which adds to the peak rating. The major or
minor periods are often underlined or in bold to indicate
the best time to hunt or fish on a particular day.

NAKED WITH FISH WAIT. WHAT?


Heres one or fthe odder ceieDrity-centric campaigns out
there. FishLove, a British organization that advocates for
sustainable fishing practices, has just launched its third
annual photo campaign in which diverse stars pose nude
with dead sea creatures. Draped in a conger eel, Gillian
Anderson ofX-Files fame is the headliner this year, though
most of the stars will be relatively unknown to American
audiences. It's hard to tell if the results are meant to be
unappetizing, since the idea is to celebrate the love of
seafood while supporting nondestructive harvesting, but
the shots probably won't do much to further your craving
for sushi. To see all the photos, go to http://bit.ly/IdOZXAQ.

TALKING HEADS WERE RIGHT: THERE IS
WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN
Australian researchers said Dec. 5 they had established the
existence of vast reserves of fresh water trapped beneath
the ocean floor which could sustain future generations as
current sources dwindle. Lead authorVincent Post, from
Australia's Flinders University, said that an estimated
120,000 cubic miles of low-salinity water had been
found buried beneath the seabed on continental shelves
off Australia, China, North America and South Africa.
"The volume of this water resource is a hundred times
greater than the amount we've extracted from the Earth's
sub-surface in the past century since 1900,"'said Post of
the study, published in the latest edition of Nature."Fresh
water on our planet is increasingly under stress and strain so
the discovery of significant new stores off the coast is very


Twenty Haitian migrants have been confirmed dead after a
sailboat carrying 150 people capsized Dec. 2. The overload-
ed wooden freighter that ran aground and capsized near
Staniel Cay in the central Bahamas. U.S. Coast Guard plane
and helicopters also dropped 10 quick-inflating life rafts
into the water to help keep survivors afloat until a Royal
Bahamas Defense Force patrol boat could save them from
the water. "They drop it right next to them and they can
swim over. Once they're out of the water they have a better
chance of surviving:"said Petty Officer Mark Barney, a Coast
Guard spokesman in Miami. "There's just so many people in
the water." Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Ryan Doss called
the incident an "avoidable tragedy"common to the area.
"Unfortunately we see these types of tragedies occur on a
monthly basis'," Doss said. "Every year we see hundreds of
migrants needlessly lose their lives at sea taking part in
these dangerous and illegal voyages."

DRILLING OPENS OFF FLORIDA
The federal government will open areas off the coasts of
eastern Alabama and western Florida for new oil and gas
drilling in March, the first lease sale in that area in five
years.The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management said Dec. 3
that it will put more than 465,000 acres in the eastern Gulf


of Mexico up for lease at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in
New Orleans on March 19.The leasing area covers waters
more than three miles off the coast of eastern Alabama
up to an eastern borderline that falls around Pensacola,
Fla. The sale will immediately follow the planned central
Gulf lease sale announced in October, which will open 39
million acres offshore Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama
for oil and gas exploration and development.The last time
oil and gas companies had the chance to bid in the eastern
Gulf was in March 2008. BOEM estimates the 465,200 acres
that will go up for lease hold 71 million barrels of oil and
162 billion cubic feet of natural gas.

CLOSING THE PLASTIC GUN LOOPHOLE
Plastic guns manufactured using 3D printers could still
escape new legislation designed to protect airport security,
according to US lawmakers trying to close a major loophole
in the regulations. The House of Representatives voted Dec.
3 to extend for another 10 years the Undetectable Firearms
Act, an existing law that bans weapons made entirely of
plastic because they can evade metal detectors meant
to keep guns out of airports and other secure locations.
But the law was originally drafted in 1998, years before
the advent of3D-printing technology made domestic
production of such weapons a reality.The existing law
requires guns to have a minimum amount of metal parts
that can be picked up by detectors and x-ray machines, but
it does not stipulate that the metal cannot be removable.
Critics argue that it is therefore possible to manufacture
guns made with metal pins that comply with the law but
which can be withdrawn shortly before passing through a
security checkpoint. Congressman Steve Israel, a Democrat
from New York, has introduced a separate bill which stip-
ulates that metal components must be a permanent part
of any plastic weapons and impossible to remove without
compromising the ability to fire it. Staff involved in drafting
the legislation concede it would not prevent a determined
criminal from making a weapon in contravention of the
law, but it should be an important step in deterring anyone
from carrying such a weapon without risking arrest.

SHARKS DO GET CANCER
Scientists have known for more than 150 years that sharks
get cancer. And yet the belief persists that the animals
don't suffer from the disease. That misconception is
promoted in part by those who sell shark cartilage, who
claim that the substance will help cure cancer. But no
studies have shown that shark cartilage is an effective


treatment, and the demand for the material has helped
decimate shark populations: Humans kill about 100
million sharks per year, according to a March 2013 study
(although many factors contribute to the killing of sharks,
including demand for shark-fin soup). Recently, researchers
in Australia noticed a large tumor protruding from the
mouth of a great white shark, as well as another mass on
the head of a bronze whaler shark. The great white's tumor
measured 1 foot long and 1 foot wide, according to a study
describing the tumors published online in November in
the Journal of Fish Diseases. "Sharks get cancer,"said David
Shiffman, a shark researcher and doctoral student at the
University of Miami."Even if they didn't get cancer, eating
shark products won't cure cancer any more than me eating
Michael Jordan would make me better at basketball."


WHERE'S YOUR LICENSE?
After watching a couple guys loading up a cooler with
sheepshead at the Venice jetties, an FWC officer decided to
check them out. He walked and said, "Howdy, fellas. Can I
see your fishing licenses?" One man looked up with panic
in his eyes, threw his rod down on the rocks and took off
running.The FWC officer was surprised, but went after him
as he raced down the beach. After about halfa mile, the
guy stopped and stooped over with his hands on his thighs
to catch his breath, and the FWC officer caught up. "Alright,
buddy, I'm gonna cite you for no license and for running!"
"Wait a sec, officer'," he said. "I've got my license right here."
He handed it over.The officer looked at in amazement and
said,"Well, you must be about as dumb as a box of rocks!
You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!"
"Yeah, I know/the guy replied,"but my pal back there is a
slow runner, and he don't have one."

Diabetes can have no-symptom

'honeymoon period'


DEAR DR. ROACH:
My 13-year-old son was
diagnosed with Type 1
diabetes on March 7,
2012, at the University
of Michigan Hospital
in Ann Arbor, Mich.,
and his A1C was 12.
Of course, I prayed for
a miracle, and about
one week after he was
diagnosed, I started him
on a nutraceutical called
Protandim. After 17 days
of being on Protandim,
he came off of insulin
and has been off ever
since. His doctor says it's
a "honeymoon period"
and that it will not last.
I asked him how long
a honeymoon typically
lasts and he said, "Days,
weeks, months, but not
years." I've told his doc-
tor about the product,
but he does not believe
there is any correlation
between taking it and my
son not needing insulin.
His A1C went from 12
down to 6.5 within three
months, and then it was
7.0 and then 7.5, and
we still check his sugar
and monitor his diet not
allowing him to have too
many carbohydrates, nor
do we allow him to have
real sugar, but he takes
one Protandim per day.
All of the information
I have researched this
drug shows that it does
help with diabetes that
would be Type 2 and
also Type 1, especially if
caught early. A different
doctor explained that
Protandim helps repair
the islet cells over time.
-M.A.
ANSWER: I have
heard of Protandim, but
was unable to find any
research showing that it
improves diabetes care.
It is supposed to prevent
aging, but the evidence
that it works is sparse.
I think that your
son probably is in a
prolonged honeymoon
period, which occasion-
ally can last for years. The
careful diet he is on cer-
tainly is helping as well.
However, with the A1C (a
measurement of average
blood sugar over a few
months) rising, and now
in the frankly diabetic
range (normal is less than
6.5 percent), I think he
will very shortly need to
be back on insulin.
It is almost impossible
to say in any given person
whether a medication or
supplement is effective.
I can't recommend this
supplement based on
your son's experience,
even though it sounds
very promising. I will be
watching carefully for any
peer-reviewed articles on

DEAR DR. ROACH:
Does acinic cell carcino-
ma fall under carcinoid
tumors? My son had a tu-
mor in his neck when he
was 27 years old. He was
a healthy young man; he
never smoked and does
not drink. The tumor was
removed successfully,
but the biopsy said it was
acinic cell carcinoma. Do
you know what causes
this kind of tumor (the
acinic cell carcinoma)?
-N.I.
ANSWER: An acinic
cell cancer is not a
carcinoid tumor. It's a
low-grade cancer of the
neck that, if it was re-
moved successfully, with
clear margins (meaning
no tumor cells near the
edge of the surgical site),
then it usually doesn't
need further treatment.
Radiation is used if the
cancer cells are too
close to the edge of the
surgical incision.
Nobody knows exactly
what causes this tumor.
However, radiation
exposure, certain viral
infections (such HPV and
HIV) and some industrial
chemicals seem to in-
crease the risk, although
people with no known
risk factors certainly may
get it.

he is unable to answer

Don't Waffle on Cleaning Iron


Dear Heloise: How do
I clean my waffle iron? -
Cindy C., Arlington, Va.
The first thing to do
is read the manual or
visit the manufacturer's
website. That said, here
is the Heloise hint, and I
just did this! If it's a greasy
buildup, all you need is a
little ammonia and paper
towels. Put the towel
on the grid (unplug the
iron), then pour on about
a teaspoon of ammonia
and let sit a few hours.
Keep away from pets and
children! Use a plastic
brush or scrubbie with
a drop of dish soap and
scrub away!
Heloise hint: do not
spray oil on a hot waffle
iron! Use only while the
iron is cool, so it will heat
up as the iron heats up.
This prevents the sticky
residue from building up
on the iron. Heloise

Twisting and
turning
Dear Heloise: With
a queen- or king-size
bed, I have a hard time
figuring out which way
to put a fitted sheet on
the bed without having
to keep turning it (which
way is top to bottom,
or side to side). I took a
permanent marking pen
and put a mark on the
two top corner seams.
Now, before putting on
the fitted sheet, I look for
the two marks and put
these corners at the top.
No more twisting and
turning! Faith H., Port
Charlotte, Fla.

Hints from Heloise


Gift-wrap holder
Dear Heloise: We all
know the frustration of
keeping gift wrap from
unrolling. Repurpose
paper-towel and toilet-
paper rolls to prevent this
problem. Cut the card-
board roll longways and
open it to fasten around
the gift-wrap roll. Place a
rubber band or piece of
tape on the toilet-paper
roll where the slit is. When
it's time to wrap gifts, just
remove the band or cut
the tape and reuse the
recycled roll again. A
Reader, via email

Sticky idea
Dear Readers: I am
always jotting down quick
notes for a zillion things!
Here's a green hint: Cut
several sticky notes in half
or thirds, vertically. If you
don't need to write a lot,
this cuts down on wasting
a whole note. It's also great
for the office or just for
little reminders through-
out the day. Heloise
PS.: I also use the "slim"
sticky as bookmarks for
things I want to go back
to while I'm reading.

Common sense and courtesy

keep bicyclists safe on the road


DEAR ABBY: As the
education director of the
East Bay Bicycle Coalition,
I work hard to encour-
age safe and courteous
cycling for everyday
transportation in Northern
California. There are a
number of points I would
like to address to "Caring
Reader, Sacramento,
Calif." (Sept. 13).
"Caring" described seeing
bicyclists run stop signs, not
wear protective gear, tex-
ting/talking on cellphones,
and suggested a greater
enforcement of the law.
Rolling through stop signs
is, indeed, just as illegal as
it is while driving a vehicle,
except in Idaho where
cyclists may treat stop signs
as yields. I encourage all cy-
clists and drivers to come to
a complete stop at signs and
signals, even when turning
right, and especially when
pedestrians are present.
Talking or texting on a
cellphone while biking
isn't currently illegal in the
state of California. I feel
that using cellphones while
biking is an unsafe practice,
and I encourage cyclists (or
drivers) to simply pull over
before making or taking a
call.
Helmets are required gear
only for bicyclists under the
age of 18 in California. As an
adult, I choose to wear one
when I'm biking. However,
it is not illegal for an adult
to bike without a helmet.
You said in your response
that people who cycle at
night should avoid wearing
dark clothes to increase
their visibility, but clothes
color alone has been
shown to have little or no
effect on visibility in dark
conditions. During low-
light times of day like dawn
or dusk, wearing bright
or fluorescent clothes is a
good strategy, but at night
bicyclists should rely on
lights and reflectors to be
seen.
The law in California stip-
ulates that bicyclists must
have a white headlight,
a red rear reflector and
yellow or white reflectors
on their wheels or spokes
as well as on their pedals,
shoes or ankles. However, I
also recommend adding to


DearAbby

these required items: a red
rear light, and additional
lights and reflectors at the
front, rear and sides of the
bike, or on one's clothing or
helmet. Highlighting one's
silhouette with lights and
reflectors, and applying
them to moving parts of
one's bike or body, will
increase visibility substan-
tially after dark.
Abby, thanks for your
attention to these is-
sues. ROBERT PRINZ,
OAKLAND, CALIF.
DEAR MR. PRINZ: You're
welcome. And thank you
for kindly sharing your
expertise with my readers.
DEAR ABBY: Last
year, my 40-year-old
stepson, "Rod," gave his
father a beautiful robe for
Christmas. The problem is,
we had given the robe to
Rod for Christmas several
years ago. I didn't say
anything at the time, but,
of course, I recognized it
because I was the one who
had bought it for him.
Should I have said
anything? Or was I right to
have played dumb (which
is what I did)?
Rod has "saved" other
presents we have given
him and regifted them to
us years later. This man
has a high-paying job and
isn't hurting for money. I
think what he's doing is
insulting. I have suggested
not exchanging gifts, but
he ignores me. What can I
do about this in the future?
-"RECYCLEE" IN THE
SOUTH
DEAR"RECYCLEE": Rod
may have forgotten that he
got the robe from you. As I
see it, you have two choices.
You can be offended, or you
can turn it into a joke. For
this Christmas, give him the
robe back.


"While we look not at the things which are seen, but
at the things which are not seen: for the things which
are seen are temporal; but the things which are not
seen are eternal."- 2 Corinthians 4:18
Perhaps it is "all in the way that we look at things,"
- but the person willing to write off the eternal in
favor of the temporal is not taking a very good look.
"Look unto me and be ye saved all ye ends of the
earth for I am God and there is none else."
