PUBLISHER'S INBOX


See comics


inside

SW AT e have been a longtime
Subscriber to the North
Port Sun and think your
paper is doing a great job. But I do
have one thing
to point out that
surprises me it has
gone unnoticed for
S so long.
I read the comics
every day,and
when you switched
to putting them in
the classified sec-
David tion that was OK
Apparently, some-
DUNN-RANKIN one then decided to
PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHER put a heading on
the top of the clas-
sified section, "SEE COMICS INSIDE!"
to make them easier to find.
However, on Saturdays we usually
get two classified sections and they
both say "SEE COMICS INSIDE!" and
then on Sunday we get a classified
section that still says "SEE COMICS
INSIDE!" and the comics are in a
separate section. Maybe they are just
generic suggestions?
This is not an issue, keep up the
great work." BT
Well BT, as the great American
philosopher Gomer Pyle once
said, "Surprise, surprise, surprise."
Imagine our "surprise" when we
took a closer look at those weekend
classified sections. Shazam! See
Comics Inside was there in beautiful
bold print on the front of classified
on Sunday and the front of the
Automotive classified section on
Saturday, just like you said, and
completely in error.
We never noticed until your
thoughtful email. You are, of course,
absolutely correct. We made the
appropriate changes when we got
your note. How could we have been
so blind?
My friend Dave Powell, who
worked in retail for many years,
calls our condition store blindness.
A store manager can look at a faulty
display for months and not see the
error. It takes his colleague, with
fresh eyes, just moments to walk
into the store and ask why the store
display is done so poorly.
The person to blame? Me. As
usual. A number of our readers like
FH told me that when we moved the
comics to classified, new readers
could not find the comics in the
paper anymore. I got emails from
new readers who said we were the
strangest newspaper in the country.
The only daily newspaper in the
country that did not print comics
every day.
Our team pointed out to me that
our index on the bottom of the front
page each day lists the location of
the comics. Readers couldn't find
the comics? Well what else were we
supposed to do?
I think I responded, "If it takes
putting SEE COMICS INSIDE in big
bold letters every day on the front
page of classified, then do it."
And so they did. Our team made
me happy. The challenge of finding
the comics went away, but SEE
COMICS INSIDE was now on the
front of classified every day, as per
my request, whether it needed to be
on the weekend or not.
We were store blind, but thanks to
BT now we see.
We are thankful that we have the
greatest newspaper readers in the
country who help us in our quest to
be America's Best Community Daily.
Thank you BT. You made my day.

The burden of sewers

Residents ask Charlotte for financial help


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
MURDOCK Marilyn Pazora and her
retired husband live on a fixed income.
So when their 2013 property tax bill
arrived with an extra $700 fee the first
year's assessment of a centralized sewer
system coming to her Spring Lake neigh-
borhood- she worried about the cost.
"The money is not there," Pazora, who
owns two adjacent lots, told Charlotte
County commissioners Tuesday.
Pazora was one of several citizens who
went before the County Commission
in opposition to the mandatory sewer


project. The controversial $17.7 million
project, aimed at protecting the Alligator
Bay watershed, will cost East and West
Spring Lake homeowners about $10,000
each over a 20-year period.
And many who lined up to protest the
sewer project also objected to the lack
of a promised hardship program to help
homeowners pay for it.
But Terri Couture, Charlotte County
Utilities director, explained there
is financial assistance available for
property owners, based on need and
circumstances.
For example, the county already
has provided more than $400,000 to


residents as part of its rebate program,
with individual payments ranging from
$700 up to the maximum of $6,400.
Property owners with newer septic
systems, 10 years old or more recent, are
entitled to the rebates.
For low- and moderate-income resi-
dents, Couture said a hardship program
also is in the works. The county is looking
into using $700,000 in Community
Development Block Grant money for the
hardship program, she said. Under this
scenario, qualified property owners could
receive up to $1,000 per unit annually,

SARASOTA COUNTY The addition
of a deadline extension to complete
the long-term management agreement
for the Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa
turned out to be a misunderstand-
ing- and information for potential
bidders interested in operating the
property could now hit the street by the
end of the week.
With the mix-up out of the way, the
Springs could reopen in the spring,


officials say.
At Wednesday's County Commission
meeting, Interim County Administrator
Tom Harmer told commissioners that
North Port City Manager Jonathan
Lewis told him that morning that the
North Port Commission did not vote
Monday on the specific language
within the agreement that stated there
could be an extension past a Sept. 1
deadline to have a long-term oper-
ator in place at the 81-acre Springs,
which is jointly owned by the city and
county. Lewis said the section would


be removed as a result. The removal
means that no further action is re-
quired by the City Commission.
"Based on the 4-1 vote by our (coun-
ty) board Tuesday, there was language
in the draft in the proposed agreement
with a management company that
had the extension provision," Harmer
said. "Our board asked that that be
removed, and in talking with the city
this morning, they agreed that they
would remove that and be able to send

Random act of kindness

STAFF WRITER

The Mannings Linda, 72, and Dwain,
79 drove in late October from Barnard, Vt.,
to Port Charlotte.
They are staying with Linda's sister, Gaffil
Murray, through April. It's too cold up north,
they said, and Dwain who has had two
strokes and gets around with a walker can't
manage very well in snow and ice.
But after Linda misplaced her purse recent-
ly, the Mannings almost had to cut short their
Florida stay and return to a tough winter in
Vermont. But a local Good Samaritan made
sure they didn't have to.
It all started Monday afternoon when the

their trip was almost cut short Monday after
Linda misplaced her pocketbook, which contained
important medical paperwork the couple needed.
A Good Samaritan saved the day Wednesday.

Mannings and Murray were going to dinner

offerings at at the Tringali Recreation Center at 3460 N. Access Road, Englewood on Wednesday.


A network of opportunities


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD- A
spirit of partnership
and cooperation can
get things done, as
Wanda King, a Waste
Management talent
scout, illustrated.
King manned the Waste
Management booth at
the Community Career
and Education Fair at
the Tringali Recreation
Center at 3460 N. Access
Road, Englewood on
Wednesday, telling the
fair's attendees what they
need to get hired.
She said that "if some-
body comes to my booth
and says 'I'm interested in
being a mechanic,' I walk
them over to Universal
Technical Institute
or Suncoast Trucking
Academy," institutions
that train mechanics and
truck drivers, respectively.
Such teamwork was
the driving idea behind
the fair. By bringing
job-seekers directly to
skill creators, employers
hoped to build a better
workforce. More than 19
educational institutions
and at least six employers
sent representatives to
the event.

"It's not necessarily a
hiring event; we're trying
to close the skills gap in
Charlotte County," King
said.
Vinny Barber, a repre-
sentative for the Universal
Technical Institute,
couldn't agree more.
"If you live down here
in Charlotte County and
you think there's no jobs
- you're wrong. There
are jobs. You just need the
skills," he said.
The fair was a joint
effort by the Charlotte
County Society of Human
Resource Management,
the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office, and
Charlotte County Parks
and Recreation.
Gladys Williams of Port
Charlotte attended the
fair initially expecting it to
be more hiring-oriented.
Williams, a retired nurse,
came looking to get back
into the workforce, but
was happy to learn about
some possible revision
courses offered in the area.
"I found a lot of
information about State
College of Florida....
(and) I just talked to
(B.J. Holbach) of the
(Charlotte Technical
Center). She even gave
me some information."
Holbach, the center's
job-placement specialist,

was promoting the cen-
ter's programs as well as
dispensing general advice
on getting hired.
She said fairs like this
are good opportunities
for job-seekers to practice
introducing themselves
to employers, build
interviewing experience,
and even ask an employer
what he thinks of their
resume. And practice is
important.
"It's not necessarily the
most qualified person
who gets the job. It's who
knows how to present
themselves the best and
match their skills to
the employer's needs,"
Holbach said.
In addition to promot-
ing career and education
opportunities, the fair
also focused on provid-
ing assistance to those
struggling to make it in
the competitive market.
Representatives of
Southwest Florida Works,
which will change its
name to CareerSource
Southwest Florida by the
end of the month, were
on hand to help people
who qualify for grants
and scholarships. They
also promoted their free
workshops, which aim
to help job-seekers to be
more effective.

Englewood reassessing island fire service


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD
-Since 2011, the
Englewood Area Fire
Control District has
provided fire protec-
tion to the bridgeless
Don Pedro and Knight
islands.
Both the fire district
and islanders are
rethinking whether they
want to continue with
the fire district at a high-
er cost. The property
owners do have the op-
tion of having Charlotte
County provide fire
protection.
Island homeowners
could see a $300 in-
crease to their assess-
ments if they stay with
the fire district.
Island resident
Bill Peterson told


Englewood fire com-
missioners Wednesday
that islanders intend to
hold meetings to decide
whether they want
Englewood or Charlotte
County to provide fire
protection.
"It's strictly a budget
issue," Peterson said.
At a recent meeting
of islanders and fire
district officials, he said,
"The 60 people said
they preferred to stay
with the Englewood
fire district. They are
pleased with the service
and want to stay with
the fire district."
A decision must be
reached by April 1,
giving the county time
to formalize its assess-
ments to islanders.
The issue of fire ser-
vice to the islands first
arose after the island's


volunteer department
- which had provided
island fire protection
for decades folded in
2011.
Islanders pay for their
fire protection through
a county municipal
service benefit unit.
The islanders now are
assessed $140.57 per
residential unit, 20 cents
per square foot for
commercial properties,
$54.47 for vacant lots,
and $11.81 for other
undeveloped properties.
In 2011, Charlotte
County proposed
manning the island
station 24/7 with paid
firefighters. At that time,
the county proposed as-
sessing property owners
$511.88 per residential
unit, and 42 cents per
square foot for commer-
cial properties.


To date, the fire
district has provided
daytime fire service
from the mainland sta-
tions, depending upon
the island's ferries, and
after-hour service with
volunteer firefighters
stationed on the island.
Fire commissioners no
longer feel it's prudent
to provide fire-protec-
tion services without
having professional
firefighters on the island
24/7.
"We have to think of
worst-case scenarios,"
Fire Commissioner Ron
Davison said, partic-
ularly concerned with
having an unmanned
fire station during the
daytime hours and the
time it takes to ferry
firefighters to the island.
"I want (the fire
district) to give


100 percent, no matter
what situation comes
up," he said.
Englewood Fire Chief
Scott Lane proposed a
$1.2 million budget for
staffing the island with
six firefighters, two for
each shift, and for addi-
tional capital improve-
ments remodeling
the island station and
replacing a fire vehicle.
Lane hasn't finalized
what the assessments
will be, but preliminary
figures suggested the
islanders might pay
11ls f *


$468.29 per residential
unit, 53 cents per square
foot for commercial, and
$95 for vacant lots. He
expects to finalize the
proposed assessments,
based upon an accurate
count of island parcels,
within the next two
weeks.
Lane also stressed
Wednesday that what-
ever the costs, mainland
fire district ratepayers
will not be affected, and
will not bear any of the
costs for island service.

Wildlife center


is objecting to


planned 253 homes


By GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

VENICE- The Wildlife
Center of Venice, a rehabili-
tation facility unique to the
area, is disputing the claim
that a planned housing de-
velopment in NorthVenice
won't displace wildlife.
Kevin Barton, director
and co-founder of the
Wildlife Center of Venice,
located practically next
door to a planned Neal
Communities subdivision
on Border Road, sent out a
call for action this month
in the WCV's newsletter,
saying the rezone "doesn't
belong here."
The call to action gener-
ated nearly 400 signatures,
some from out of state, on
an electronic petition on
Facebook.
"The WCV is the only
facility of our type in South
County, and is the largest
in the tri-county area,"
Barton said. "Selling these
parcels under existing
(zoning) code into 5- and
10-acre tracts would be
a much slower (develop-
ment) process and much
better for wildlife, and the
Wildlife Center of Venice."
What irked Barton
was a claim by Neal
Communities land use
attorney Jeff Boone that
there's practically no wild-
life in the area but cattle.
"This wildlife hotspot
is where I admire deer,
turkey, quail, bald eagles,
swallow-tailed kites,
panther tracks, chuckwills
widows, ground doves,
fox, bobcat, all types of
woodpecker, all types of
songbird, woodstorks,
barred owls, various hawk
species, lightning bugs,
crawdads, kingfishers,
alligators, a million frogs
and insects, flying squir-
rels, kestrels, bats, otters ...
basically everything in the
area," Barton said.
He believes this par-
ticular 151-acre tract is
indispensable to securing
a wildlife corridor to the
Myakka River tracts and
that alone makes it worth
preserving.
"This is the buffer,"
Barton said. "They're start-
ing with the worst piece of


(land to develop). The rest
will fall like dominoes if
they succeed."
Boone pointed out
that Sarasota County has
already set aside huge
amounts of conservation
lands, mostly on the other
side of the Myakka River
east of the proposed
development.
"This county has tens
of thousand of acres that's
in public ownership. Very
few counties on either
coast have as much land as
Sarasota County set aside
for wildlife and public
recreation," Boone said.
"These are the kind of
issues that often come up
when new development is
proposed further inland. In
this instance, some of the
houses that are along the
Myakka River were built
50 years ago. That urban
boundary was set 50 years
ago. We're not talking about
pushing out any further."
Boone said the current
proposal is similar to oth-
ers made in the early 2000s.
Those, he said, "stalled out
during the recession and
are now coming."
The property was an-
nexed and then designated
through the city compre-
hensive plan for future
development at under
five units per acre under
then-mayor Ed Martin, a
slow growth proponent.
Neal Communities
and the city Planning
Commission met last week
in a "pre-conference" to
discuss Pat Neal's idea to
develop the parcel with
253 single family homes.
Barton wants his own
"pre-conference" with the
commission to make his
case against changing the
zoning.
"I know he (Pat Neal)
is well-respected in the
community as a developer
and politician but from a
wildlife rescue and rehabil-
itation point of view, I am
all too familiar with these
developments from those
in Lakewood Ranch south
to Sawgrass down the road
from us," Barton said. "As
these developments go in,
the native wildlife go out,
often on a stretcher."

Report: Man rages over printer return


DEEP CREEK-When
a man learned he couldn't
return a printer at a local
retail store Tuesday, he
went on a rampage that
led to his arrest on four
charges, according to the
Charlotte County Sheriffs
Office.
Jose Daniel Morales,
24, of the 25300 block of
Sandhill Boulevard in Deep
Creek, accompanied his
girlfriend around 6:15 p.m.
to theWalmart on Kings

printer. The report shows
Morales became irate
when employees told
them the item couldn't be
returned because there
was no receipt and the
purchase was made over
three months ago.
Morales allegedly started
cursing and smashing the
printer on the floor before
throwing it at two custom-
er service representatives,
who ducked behind a
counter.
Morales then stormed
out of the store and
chest-bumped an assistant
manager "as if to cause him
to fight" and "karate-chop
kicked" an anti-theft se-
curity device near the exit,
causing $500 in damage,
authorities said.
Authorities reportedly
found Morales at his home,
hiding in a closet.
He was charged with
assault, battery, criminal
mischief and resisting
an officer. He was held
Wednesday in the
Charlotte County Jail
without bond.

To think it's already four years since the tragic accident that took
you both from this world. It seems as if it was just yesterday you guys
were born on your older brother's birthday. Such a special day for two
special babies, who were instantly loved by all. Nobody would have
thought that just 12 months later both of you would be pulled away
from your loved ones. In an instant you were gone, leaving so many in
pain and sorrow.
But now the time has come to remember the good times and happy
moments you were part of, and we all know there were many. Today,
Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, please light two candles for Joshua and
Christian at 5:55 p.m., the time of drowning, and please say a prayer
for the family.
Family and friends, please be thankful today. We have to treasure the
time we had with them, honor them, talk about them, talk to them,
and remember their lives. Joshua and Christian are still close beside
you, in a new special way, and they love you all dearly, now don't shed
a tear. Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather an opening
where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy (from -
an Eskimo proverb and unknown authors).

Official: Fla. Bar Association needs to address technology


By PAUL FALLON
SUN CORRESPONDENT

PORT CHARLOTTE -
The president-elect of the
Florida Bar Association
believes the organization
needs to address issues
concerning technology to
help attorneys throughout
the state.
And he is leading the
charge to address these
issues sooner rather than
later. Greg Coleman,
who will take over as
president of the Florida
Bar Association in June,
addressed attorneys in the
county on Wednesday.
During the presenta-
tion, Coleman discussed
that the state bar associ-
ation has not yet passed
rules addressing issues


that arise from the effect
technology has on the
practice of law.
"There are a thousand
different ways technology
is going to affect lawyers,"
Coleman said. 'Attorneys
are often resistant to
change, but change is
coming, regardless."
"The members of the
bar that embrace tech-
nology are going to be the
ones that are successful,"
Coleman said.
Coleman pointed out
that the rules for the
Florida Bar Association
were written 20 to
30 years ago, and that
they have not changed to
address leaps in technolo-
gy that include email and
video chatting.
"Ethical issues are


boiling to the forefront
rapidly," Coleman told the
crowd of attorneys assem-
bled atVisani Restaurant
in Port Charlotte.
Changes range from
etiquette when corre-
sponding via email to
security of files that are
often accessible through
mobile devices such as
smartphones and tablets.
For example, around
10 years ago, when an
attorney wanted to set up
a deposition, he would
contact the lawyer repre-
senting the other party via
email and fax, Coleman
said. The attorney would
then request that the
deposition be scheduled
at a later date convenient
to both parties.
The entire process


could take a week or
longer, he said.
Nowadays, attorneys
communicate through
email, which can cause
some professional prob-
lems, Coleman said. For
example, an attorney may
send an email to another
lawyer late at night asking
for a deposition to be
scheduled. That attorney
is also likely to demand
that the other respond
to the request almost
instantly.
"And that's just not pro-
fessional," Coleman said.
Coleman also discussed
privacy when it comes
to electronic devices.
He asked the assembled
attorneys if they would be
willing to let any member
of the public go through


their private files placed
in a filing cabinet.
"That wouldn't be very
ethical, would it?" he said.
But he pointed out
that there are often
confidential files which
can be accessed via smart
phones and tablets. Those
devices needed to be
password protected.
Coleman will be
focusing on technology
and the issues surround-
ing it when he becomes
president of the state bar
association.
The association is
also setting up a three-
year committee to look
at issues dealing with
technology and draft rules
addressing situations that
could arise, he said.
Charlotte County Bar


Association president
Michael Powell believes
Coleman was spot on
with his assessment of
technology's effect on the
practice of law.
"Everyone of us needs
to learn how to use this
new technology and
social media," Powell said.
Coleman declined to
discuss issues dealing
with laws such as Stand
Your Ground and issues
surrounding concealed
weapons in the state
for this article. This is
because the Florida Bar
Association does not
permit its officers from
taking an official stance
on current laws.
"We have to be very
careful what we weigh in
on," Coleman said.

the bid documents out
as soon as possible."
Harmer said that
Tuesday's vote will not
hold up releasing the
solicitation as was ini-
tially feared. The county,
believing the city wanted
the extension, had voted
against the management
agreement.
"I've told the city
that we are OK with the
documents going out
as soon as possible with
just that one segment
removed," Harmer said.
"I think there was some
language that our board
was uncomfortable
with, and this takes
that language out so it's
very clear about that
Sept. 1 date.... with the
extension language they
were concerned that was
different than the previ-
ous direction they had,
which was a short-term
management agreement
that expires by Sept. 1."
County Commission
Chairman Charles


Hines, who was the lone
vote Tuesday to allow
the clause to remain in
the agreement, said its
removal and allowing
the process to move
forward "was good
news." Commissioner
Christine Robinson
said the matter was a
miscommunication.
"This is a very positive
step for both North Port
and Sarasota County,"
Robinson said. "I'm
encouraged that we
are starting to agree on
things."
City Commissioner
Linda Yates concurred.
"It's good that it's on
its way. The next thing
is that we hope we have
a long-term vendor
selected and in place
by Sept. 1," Yates said.
"That's our goal at this
point. We're continuing
on with our interlocal
agreement and hopefully
during this period of
time, nothing unfore-
seen comes up and we
wouldn't have something
in place."
North Port Mayor
Jim Blucher said there
was some confusion


NEIGHBORHOOD
GRANTS AWARDED
In other business Wednesday, Sarasota County
commissioners awarded nearly $33,000 through
the Neighborhood Initiative Grant Program, aimed
at preserving and enhancing neighborhoods. Three
communities in Englewood received more than half
of the grant funds.
The program is a 50/50 matching grant program.
Neighborhoods can provide their 50 percent match
with cash, donations or volunteer hours credited
at $15 per hour. Alameda Isles received a $10,000
grant, the maximum amount that any neighborhood
can receive in the program. Documents show that
the Alameda Isles Homeowners Association plans
to replace the existing plantings along 1,800 feet
of walled frontage along State Road 776. Plans also
call for the removal of existing red cedar bark mulch
and replacing it with melaleuca mulch. Residents
will also recycle red cedar bark mulch throughout
the park community, and Florida-friendly plantings
will be arranged in groups under the existing palm
trees.
The project is expected to cost around $27,000.
Alameda Isles is contributing $15,332 in cash and
$1,275 coming from volunteer hours.


between city and county
staffs after county staff
had already approved
the language that was
presented to both com-
missions this week.
"We're going to be
fine," Blucher said. "It's
worked out for the best."
Both boards are anx-
ious to see the Springs,
which closed June 30
after the two govern-
ments failed to secure
a contract to operate
North Port's only tourist
attraction, reopened
soon. Residents, in pro-
tests and meetings, have
demanded the day spa
be reopened for swim-
ming only, saying its
mineral-rich waters cure
ailments like arthritis.
Bid documents
should hit the street this
week, and bidding for a
Springs operator would
be opened on Feb. 24
if there are no further
delays. After the city
and county review the
proposals and make a
selection of a vendor in
March, the day spa could
open sometime in late
April.

Englewood Isles received a $5,294 grant that
residents will use to update the entryway to their
property.
Their application says they would like to replace
the original sign from the 1970s with "a modern and
visually pleasing sign that will enhance the beauty
of the Englewood Isles community and our neigh-
borhood."The project also includes updated LED
lighting and environmentally friendly landscaping,
as well as drip irrigation at the entrance to the
community.
The project is estimated to cost around $16,700.
Englewood Isles has contributed $5,293 in cash and
$6,075 from volunteer hours.
The Pine Lake Homeowners Association received
a $2,920 grant that will go toward the installation
of an aerator on Pine Lake to improve oxygen levels
to help prevent fish kills, improve water quality and
keep weeds down around the lake. The total project
cost is estimated at $5,839, with Pine Lake contrib-
uting $2,575 in cash, $45 from volunteer hours and
$300 in donations.
A fourth project in Englewood the construc-
tion of a small, secure, kayak storage facility
beneath the building housing the Lemon Bay Park
Environmental Center and park offices was
withdrawn from the application process.

In addition, because

helped Dwain into the
front seat, and put his
walker away," Linda said
Wednesday. "Then off we
went."
She forgot to grab her
pocketbook
The purse contained the
couple's Social Security
cards, credit cards and
cash. But more important,
it contained medical cards
and documents needed
for Dwain to get local
treatment for his medical
issues.
"Down here, doctors
seem to demand all your
paperwork, so I keep
everything with me in my
pocketbook," Linda said.
Gail drove about a mile
down U.S. 41 from the
restaurant back to her
apartment and couldn't
find it. She called the
Charlotte County Sheriffs
Office, but a deputy
couldn't find it either. The
purse had gone missing in
about 30 minutes.
The Mannings panicked.
"Nothing is simple," said
Linda. "If he had to go to
the doctor or I had to go, I
wouldn't have any paper-
work to show them."
Dwain was disgruntled
just thinking about it.
"It's terrible to be old,"
he said.
None of the items in


to fund this hardship
program," Couture said.
Meanwhile, the county
actively continues to
seek alternative funding
sources to further assist
homeowners. Couture
is particularly optimistic
about receiving up to
$4 million in federal funds
from the Resources and
Ecosystems Sustainability,
Tourist Opportunities,
and Revived Economies
(RESTORE) Act, which
dedicates 80 percent of
all penalties related to
the Deepwater Horizon
oil spill to a Gulf Coast
Restoration Trust Fund for
the restoration and protec-
tion of natural resources.
These funds would
be used to offset the
project's cost to everyone


the pocketbook had any
information about how to
contact the Mannings in
Florida.
"It's mind-boggling to
think about what you have
to do because of every-
thing that was lost," Linda
said.
The Mannings were
starting to think about
heading back home to deal
with sorting matters out
and to have peace of mind
about medical options.
But on a whim
Wednesday morning,
Linda who thought
some kids may have taken
the cash and tossed her
purse- pulled off to the
side of the road to look
near a canal by Gaffs
apartment. A middle-aged
man -who identified
himself only as Sean -
was passing by in a pickup
and stopped when he
noticed her license plate
was fromVermont. And, he


affected, she said.
But other concerns
remain. Since the central-
ized wastewater-treatment
system was approved as
a pilot project, Pazora
has seen an exodus of
homeowners and renters
moving out of her Spring
Lake neighborhood, and
more "For Sale" signs
going up on vacant lots.
In a later interview, she
said landlords who don't
qualify for these assistance
programs likely will pass
the added sewer costs on
to tenants, placing more
of a burden on those least
able to pay.
"It's not a wealthy
neighborhood," Pazora
said. "We're just living
from day to day."

found Monday afternoon.
Sean told Linda he
was driving near the
apartments located off
Forrest Nelson Boulevard
- when he saw people
swerving out of the way
of something dark in the
road. Thinking it was a
turtle, he stopped to help it
cross the street.
But it was a pocketbook
Linda said Sean gave her
her things and drove off.
"I'd just like to thank
him," said Linda, who
doesn't know how to
contact the man.
Linda is a Christian.
She said others should
learn from random acts of
kindness like this.
"We have so much
negative in our country,"
she said. "See how nice it
is when we can help each
other?"

WHAT TO DO WITH FOUND PROPERTY
Per Florida law (705.102),"Whenever any person finds any lost
or abandoned property, such person shall report the description and
location of the property to a law enforcement officer."
But Charlotte County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said
it's also OK to return property to the owner yourself or to a lost-and-
found section of a store where the item was found, for example.
"Just as we need community support to be effective in law enforce-
ment, it really helps to have so many citizens such as those in
Charlotte County who are willing to help others/she said.
Evidence supervisor Erin Hume said the agency in 2013 was able to
give 550 found items back to their owners (or the finders in some
cases if there was no identifiable owner).
The CCSO can be reached at 941-639-2101, and the Punta Gorda
Police Department can be reached at 941-575-5519.

Man gets eight years



in child sex case


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY
-A judge sentenced a
Venice man to eight years
in prison for a sexual
relationship he had
with an underage girl in
2012, according to court
documents.
Dustin Lynn
Underwood, 33, of the
1000 block of Capri Isles
rBlvd., was
originally
charged with
multiple
counts of
transmission
of harmful
^j1 materials
UNDERWOOD toaminor,
lewd and
lascivious molestation and
battery, and sexual battery
in connection with mul-
tiple incidents that took
place between September
and October 2012.
Underwood pleaded
guilty Dec. 20 to one count
each of transmission of
harmful materials, lewd
and lascivious battery,
and lewd and lascivious


molestation. The state
decided not to pursue the
remaining charges, court
records show.
Friday at the Sarasota
County Justice Center,
12th Circuit Judge
Frederick Mercurio
sentenced Underwood to
eight years in state pris-
on, along with two years
of community control
and five years of proba-
tion upon his release,
records show. He was also
adjudicated guilty of the
crimes.
Underwood was
first charged twice in
December 2012, and
then again in October
2013, but his crimes date
back to September 2012.
It was November 2012
when the female victim's
mother became aware of
the girl's relationship with
Underwood and ap-
proached Venice police.
The victim had been
molested at Underwood's
home and in the park-
ing lot of the Sarasota
Square Mall on several
occasions, a report states.
Underwood also fondled


the victim on multiple
occasions and made her
watch him masturbate in
the mall parking lot.
Authorities also ex-
amined Underwood's
cellphone, where they
discovered multiple por-
nographic images. They
also found images of fully
naked prepubescent boys
and girls on the phone.
The report states they
also found nude images
of Underwood himself
on the phone, including
photos of his genitalia
surrounded by $100 bills,
the report states. Dates
on the photos went back
to September 2012 and
continued through the
time of his arrest.
Information about the
victim, including her age,
was redacted from the
report, but it did state
Underwood knew the girl
and had photos of her on
the phone.
Assistant State Attorney
Amanda Gambert, lead
prosecutor on the case,
could not be reached for
comment.

I OUR VIEW

Warning shot

law another step

in wrong direction

OUR POSITION: The Florida
Legislature is moving in a dan-
gerous direction as it considers
expansion of the controversial
Stand Your Ground law.
retty soon, Florida could
be a haven for duelists
who want to settle their
differences.
That's the path our lawmak-
ers are taking as they prepare
legislation to make it legal to
draw a gun and firing a warn-
ing shot.
Already, Florida has a Stand
Your Ground law that makes it
legal to shoot someone if you
feel threatened. That legislation
was pushed through by law-
makers who failed to properly
vet the law or its unforeseen
consequences. It's a case of
groupthink where nobody
bothered to raise objections
because they wanted to toe the
party line.
The reasoning behind both
laws is obvious. We just feel
the reasoning is skewed and
shows a lack of confidence in
a legal system charged with
deciding if a person is acting in
self defense. The court system
worked for decades before
someone decided we needed
to protect people who want to
take potshots at others.
In a sense, the new warning
shot bill is a no-brainer. If you
can already legally shoot some-
one when you feel threatened,
why would it be a problem if
you just flashed your gun, or
fired a warning shot? Of course,
the key is that you are good
enough with a firearm that a
warning shot is just that a
warning.
The legislation was drawn
up after a Jacksonville woman,
Marissa Alexander, was sen-
tenced to 20 years in prison
for firing a warning shot at
her estranged husband. The
sentence was mandated by
Florida's tough 10-20-Life law
that makes is an automatic
20 years to life sentence for
anyone discharging a gun while
committing a crime.
An appeals court threw out
Alexander's sentence and she
will have a new trial this year.
State Attorney Bill Cervone,
who represents the Gainesville
district, said lawmakers were
only hearing one side of the
case. He said people who are
in prison were put there by
a judge and jury after they
claimed self-defense. He agreed
with our thinking that a judge
and jury should be able to
determine the truth and
we have faith that our judicial
system works.
Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, the
bill's sponsor, disagrees. He
said Floridians have a right to
defend themselves and that
includes brandishing a firearm
and even shooting at the per-
son they believe is threatening
them.
Evers brought up the case
of a 74-year-old man in the
Panhandle who was sentenced
to prison because he had
a shotgun visible during a
confrontation.
Cervone countered with the
logic that perhaps the crime of
aggravated assault should be
removed from the list of crimes
drawing a mandatory 10-20-
Life sentence.
When the Legislature con-
venes, this bill will surely get
plenty of attention.
Florida already has garnered
national attention after the
shooting death of teenager
Trayvon Martin.
If our lawmakers insist on
leaning toward legalizing the
use of firearms in confronta-
tions, then the best idea may
be to legalize duels and charge
a fee to attend. The money
could be used for education.


At least some good would
come out of all the shootings.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Englewood fire
does great job

Editor:
Several days ago, I did a
stupid thing and forgot I put
some oil in a pan to heat up
in order to brown some meat.
Needless to say, several rooms
were smoke-filled, but not
enough, I guess, to set off my
fire alarms.
This bothered me, so I
called our Englewood Fire
Department to see if they
would come out and check
my smoke detectors. That
very day two men from the
fire department came and
checked them out and found
they were working okay.
I just want to acknowledge
our great fire department to
everyone and the excellent
service we received from
these two gentlemen. They
were two of the nicest fellas I
have talked to and the chief
can be very proud of them.
In talking to them, I even
found out one of them used
to live in New Jersey, not more
than 10 miles from where I
grew up. What a small world!
We can all be proud of what
a great group of men make
up our fire department and
the many dangers they go
through in their profession.
Hooray for the Englewood
Fire Department!

stop foolishness
Editor:
No president should be
gung-ho about war.
Kennedy did not trust the
military either. LBJ fell for
their mystique and it got us
into Vietnam. George Bush
did also and we are still trying
to clean up that stupidity.
Warriors spend their whole
lives preparing or conduct-
ing war. That is their job. A
president has a responsibility
to the citizens of this country.
The president knew there was
no way to win in Afghanistan,
but he let himself get boxed in
to support a troop escalation,
but he made it very clear,
you war commanders have
two years to make this work
with these number of troops,
and he got them, including
Gates, to sign on to that.
He made it clear don't hold
what you can't transfer.
So, Mr. Gates, stop with this


foolishness. Mr. Biden was
asked by the president to play
devil's advocate, so again stop
with the mis-characterization.
Mr. Gates has shown his
true colors writing a book
which has always been
written after the president
has passed on. The lack of
respect for President Obama
that has been written in this
newspaper has astounded me.
This country will not survive
until we learn to work togeth-
er, something the House of
Representatives are not doing
because of their obstructionist
antics at all costs.

Why now
for lawsuit?

Editor:
I am referring to today's Sun
editorial and the Friends of
Warm Mineral Springs new
lawsuit.
A question you could ask
them: "Why did you wait so
long to decide the owners
violate EPA standards, U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers,
state Division of Historical
Resources, then press an
additional lawsuit against the
above and asking taxpayers to
pay court costs?" Why, when
you had virtually two years
while WMS was in limbo to
take such action?
Seems absurd to me. I feel
you, commissioners, should
take a stand that reasonable
time limits for this action has
expired or to be questioned.

Credit cards

Editor:
One writer recently wrote
about credit cards. I have that

found someone using my card
and I was saved a mammoth

The subject of food stamps

about. I believe people who
truly need help should get it.
The people who are getting
help should not be able to buy
all the frills, soda, beer, candy
and T-bones. It should be for
the necessities.
I have stood in line watch-
ing people using the stamps
and cards to buy these things,

help pay for them cannot af-

The 'town' of Englewood: United it stands


ho speaks for
Englewood?
Who is the
final arbiter of decisions
affecting our little piece
of paradise? That is a
complicated question
with an even more con-
voluted answer.
With the county line
cutting Englewood right
in half, the answer also
depends on the subject.
In a normal commu-
nity, police, fire, water
and sewer, schools and
municipal offices are
under one umbrella.
For Englewood, secur-
ing and retaining our
identity truly has been a
labor of love.
Foresighted business
leaders have given us a
hometown radio station,
newspaper, Chamber of
Commerce and Board


'- I r Is
While



of Realtors. They over-
saw the establishment
of Englewood Water
District, which serves
both sides of the county
line. And we have a Fire
Control District that
serves the entire town.
Policing isn't so clear
cut. Both Charlotte and
Sarasota counties cover
their respective sides of
the line. And while we
have three elementary
schools, one middle
school and one high


school, they fall under
the school boards of
the counties in which
they are located. The
only Sarasota County
school in Englewood is
Englewood Elementary.
Often, families must
contend with two
different school vacation
schedules.
Interestingly,
Englewoodians flow
back and forth over the
invisible line without
thought to the county.
They are in Englewood,
they care about all
things Englewood. They
may live in Charlotte
County and go to school,
work or church in
Sarasota County. Or any
combination of possibil-
ities. Community leaders
live in one county and
work in the other.


It is challenging
to stay on top of the
different rules over the
invisible line. Zoning
laws, sign ordinances
and permitting proce-
dures (to name a few)
change at the line.
Business people who
deal with this have
double the information
to learn.
One has to wonder
if our county leaders
really get this? Sarasota
County established
the Community
Redevelopment Agency
to allow tax dollars
to stay in Englewood.
Charlotte County has
no such effort un-
derway. And, further,
given the mindset of
the people and the
challenges to life in a
divided community,


wouldn't some mutual
planning and mutual
goals be advisable to
protect the identity of
the community?
The obvious answer
would be to incorporate,
but that is virtually
impossible.
In order to include
all of Englewood, it
would have to be in one
county or the other.
That would involve
annexation by one
county. Charlotte would
lose a money-making
portion of the county, or
Sarasota would have to
do the same. The miles
of shoreline and the
tourist dollars gener-
ated make Englewood
integral to the budgets
of both counties. Not
to mention the burden
placed on the citizens


by yet another layer of
bureaucracy and anoth-
er tax hit to support an
incorporated city.
Many communities
abut other counties.
But few are divided
by the county line as
Englewood is. This
unique situation
demands creative
governance by both
counties and a true and
honest understanding
of the hearts and minds
of the citizens. We live,
work and educate our
children with no notice
of that invisible line. We
need representatives
and ideas that help unite
us, not divide us further.

ness owner and activist

Strategic investment should dominate legislative efforts


n a typical Florida
legislative session,
some 2,000 bills are
usually floating some-
where in the process.
The 120 state House
members and 40 state
senators introduce a
thousand or so member
bills. Add to that the
appropriations bills,
implementing bills,
budget conforming bills,
claims bills and commit-
tee bills and pretty soon
you've got 160 legislators
chasing their tails to
move thousands of bills
in a 60-day session.
While the session
officially starts in early
March, legislators have
been making the trek
to Tallahassee since
September in prepara-
tion. These committee
weeks are held to allow
legislators the oppor-
tunity to start moving
their legislation through
committees and to allow
the public to comment
on proposed changes to
Florida law.
So, while many politi-
cians extol the virtues of
less government, there
is no shortage of policy
initiatives each year. In
fairness, it does take a
bill to revise or repeal


fPaula




a current law, but, in
truth, very few of the bills
actually repeal existing
law.
The one and only order
of business required of
the Florida Legislature
during the legislative ses-
sion is to pass a balanced
budget. Legislators must
put forward a spending
plan that spends no
more than the estimated
revenue expected to be
collected.
I humbly suggest
the Florida Legislature
should focus on a
limited agenda and
resist the temptation to
micromanage, meddle
and mandate. The less
they do, the more they
can do well with careful
attention to detail and
with plenty of opportu-
nity for input, research
and reasoned debate.
The end result should
be a well-vetted policy


decision or spending
plan.
With increasing
revenues and a signifi-
cant anticipated surplus,
the Legislature has the
opportunity to increase
spending in underfund-
ed areas, save funds for
future needs or return
dollars in the form of
tax relief or fee cuts.
A balanced approach
would incorporate all
three options.
Education: Increases
in all levels of education
would result in greater
learning gains, better
recruitment of teach-
ers, more competitive
colleges and universities,
less pressure for high-
er education tuition
increases and a greater
economic development
tool than costly and risky
tax incentives.
Child protection:
Increases in child
protection funding will
begin to address the
chronic problems at the
Department of Children
and Families. The
additional funds should
be used for in-depth
training, recruitment
and reducing caseloads
to a manageable level to
better protect our most


vulnerable children.
Mental health: In light
of all the recent tragedies
involving those suffering
with mental illness, leg-
islators should invest in
mental health treatment
for the growing need
in our communities.
This could keep these
individuals from moving
into our costly criminal
justice system.
Water and environ-
ment: Increases in water
resource and environ-
mental projects such as
land acquisition, water
restoration, water supply
development and land
management would
not only benefit our
nature-based tourism
but would also help our
farmers and ranchers,
our seafood producers,
and, most importantly,
our quality of life and
sustainability. Significant
Florida Forever funding
should resume after a
several-year hiatus and
funding should be pro-
vided to begin the Indian
River Lagoon restoration.
Transportation:
Increases in funding for
transportation and other
infrastructure would act
as a stimulus to create
jobs, attract industry


and improve our quality
of life. Funds should be
allocated not only for
new construction, but
also for improvements,
maintenance and repair.
Seaports: Investment
in our deepwater sea-
ports could pay huge
dividends as ports
function as economic
engines for international
trade, manufacturing
and investment.
State reserves: After
wisely investing tax dol-
lars, some portion of the
revenue should be added
to the state's reserves
to address any number
of unforeseen events,
natural or manmade.
License fees: The
Legislature should look
at giving back. Driver's
license and vehicle tag
fees should be reduced
as originally intended.
The increases occurred
during the recessionary
years of sharply de-
creased revenues and
were intended to tempo-
rarily fill the budget gap.
Tax breaks: Additional
tax breaks should be
broad-based and affect
low- and middle-income
workers and small busi-
nesses that are struggling
to get by.


Medicaid: Legislators
should move quickly
to expand Medicaid
for the nearly 1 million
Floridians who would
be eligible and who are
trying to gain access to
affordable health care.
Many of these individu-
als could use this to tran-
sition to self-sufficiency
by purchasing their own
private insurance.
Criminal code: It's
well past time to rewrite
the criminal code and
sentencing laws to better
reflect today's realities.
Decriminalize those
nonviolent offenses that
do not pose a threat
to our citizens. Focus
on rehabilitation and
reintegration into society
after the debt is paid to
reduce recidivism.
An agenda that focuses
on fiscal responsibility,
job creation, public
safety and quality of
life would show a real
commitment to limited
and smart government.

Robert Gates portrays Obama as a different kind of president


ike just about
everybody else in
Washington and
many across the country,
I've been reading the
excerpts from former
Defense Secretary Robert
Gates' book "Duty: Mem-
oirs of a Secretary of War."
It presents a signifi-
cantly more negative
picture of Barack Obama
and Hillary Clinton
than Gates' statements
in office led anyone to
expect.
And it presents an
interesting contrast with
Gates' previous memoir,
"From the Shadows: The
Ultimate Insider's Story
of Five Presidents and
How They Won the Cold
War," published in 1996.
To be sure, Gates
in "Duty" says many
positive things about his
most recent former col-
leagues. He calls Obama's
decision to target Osama
bin Laden the "most
courageous" presidential
decision he has seen.
He praises Clinton's
judgment, her sense of
humor and her penchant
for hard work. Though he
doesn't make the point
explicitly in the excerpt,
the secretary of state
and secretary of defense
weren't constant and
mistrustful antagonists.
But he also presents
some damning testimo-
ny. Listening to Obama
soon after he had ordered
a surge of troops into
Afghanistan, "I thought:


Michael
_Barone


The president doesn't
trust his commander,
can't stand (Hamid)
Karzai, doesn't believe
in his own strategy and
doesn't consider the war
to be his. For him, it's all
about getting out."
If this is not cynical
enough, he is shocked
that Clinton and Obama
admit that their opposi-
tion to the Iraq surge was
politically motivated -
in the presence of Gates,
who was in the chain of
command on the surge
and helped make it work.
As for Vice President
Joe Biden, Gates writes
that he "has been wrong
on nearly every major
foreign policy issue"
over four decades. And
he expresses even more
angry contempt for
congressional leaders.
Gates wrote "Duty"
after leaving government
with no intention or
expectation of ever
returning. But he wrote
"From the Shadows,"
published in 1996, in
similar circumstances.
He had risen quickly
from a junior Russia
analyst at the CIA to


positions at the National
Security Council in the
Nixon, Ford, Carter,
Reagan and first Bush
administrations. He was
nominated to be CIA
director in 1986, but
withdrew in the face of
congressional opposition;
he was nominated again
for the post and con-
firmed in 1991.
In "From the Shadows"
he does not always fawn
on the leaders he served.
"No stranger man in
American history" is his
verdict on Richard Nixon.
Ronald Reagan "began
to fade a bit beginning in
late 1985-early 1986."
He has especially warm
praise for George H.W
Bush and his foreign
policy team, and notes
that Bush had almost
a familial relationship
with National Security
Adviser Brent Scowcroft
(as George W Bush
would later have with
Condoleezza Rice).
He sees Secretary of
State James Baker as "a
master craftsman of the
persuasive and backroom
arts at the peak of his
powers," but notes that
he "demanded more
loyalty of the president
than he gave in return."
Even more notable
than the individual
portraits in "From the
Shadows" is Gates'
argument that there was
far more continuity in
American foreign policy
during the presidencies


in which he served than
was suggested by parti-
san rhetoric.
In this view, Nixon's
detente with Russia
was sealed by Ford's
Helsinki Accords, whose
human rights provisions
were built on by Carter,
who began the defense
buildup accelerated by
Reagan, whose nego-
tiations with Mikhail
Gorbachev provided the
basis for Bush's manage-
ment of the collapse of
the Soviet empire.
Presidents were
constantly buffeted from
the Right and Left by
members of Congress,
but, Gates argues, if the
process was unpleasant,
the results were usually
benign.
In the excerpts from
"Duty," Gates seems
to take a similar view
of George W Bush, a
"mature leader" who on
the Iraq surge "risked
reputation, public es-
teem, credibility, political
ruin and the judgment
of history on a single
decision he believed was
the right thing for the
country."
But the excerpts
suggest that Gates sees
Obama out of line with
the continuity he admires
in his predecessors.
Clinton and Obama's
cynical opposition to the
Iraq surge and Obama's
half-hearted commitment
to his Afghanistan strate-
gy are in jarring contrast


with his description in
"Shadows" of Ford, Carter,
Reagan and Bush I.
"For each," he writes,
"the country came first,"
and "each, in his own
way, was a modest man."
Let's see if in the full text


of "Duty" he says the
same of Obama.

House passes spending bill


$1.1 trillion budget goes to Senate for vote this week


By ANDREW TAYLOR
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

WASHINGTON -A $1.1 trillion
spending bill for operating the
government until just before next
fall's election steamed through the
battle-weary House on Wednesday
over tepid protests from tea party
conservatives, driven by a bipartisan
desire to restore painful cuts in
domestic and defense programs and
show disaffected voters that Congress
can do its job.
The bill swept through the House
on a 359-67 vote and was on track
for a big Senate vote by week's end.
Republicans voted for the bill by a


21/2-1 margin, and just three
Democrats were opposed.
The measure funds virtually every
agency of government and contains
compromises on almost every one of
its 1,582 pages. It covers the one-third
of government spending subject to
annual decisions by Congress and
the White House, programs that
have absorbed the brunt of budget
cuts racked up since Republicans
reclaimed control of the House three
years ago.
Excluded are the giant benefit pro- AP PHOTO

Study: Muscles linked to diabetes prevention


By MARY MACVEAN
Los ANGELES TIMES WRITER

LOS ANGELES -Women
might consider aiming for
those Kelly Ripa sculpted
muscles it's not just
jogging that will keep Type
2 diabetes at bay, scientists
said in a study this week.
The benefits of aerobic
exercise such as running and
swimming to help prevent
Type 2 diabetes have been
established, but with a study
of thousands of middle-aged
and older women, research-
ers say that weight-lifting
and other muscle-strength-
ening exercise including yoga
were associated with lower


levels of the disease.
That doesn't mean you
should hang up your running
shoes or swimsuit.
"The findings from our
study also suggest that incor-
porating muscle-strength-
ening and conditioning
activities with aerobic
activity according to the
current recommendation for
physical activity (from health
authorities for 150 minutes
a week) provides substantial
benefit for Type 2 diabetes
prevention in women," the
authors wrote Tuesday in
the online journal PLOS
Medicine.
Women who did at least
150 minutes of aerobic


activity a week and at least
an hour a week of mus-
cle-strengthening exercise
were a third as likely to
develop diabetes as inactive
women, said the research-
ers, who were from several
institutions including the
Harvard School of Public
Health.
The researchers followed
99,316 women ages 36 to
81, from two ongoing health
studies of nurses, for eight
years. The nurses completed
questionnaires about their
activity levels. (The authors
note that two weaknesses of
the study are that most of
the nurses are of European
ancestry and that they were


self-reporting their work-
outs.) During the study, 3,491
women developed diabetes.
There is evidence that
glycemic control can
be improved with mus-
cle-strengthening activities,
the researchers said, adding
that there had been less
evidence that such work-
outs helped in prevention.
Examples of that activity
include resistance train-
ing, yoga and lifting free
weights.
In the follow-up years, the
researchers found that the
more activity, the more the
benefit, even if not at the
level of Ripa, the super-toned
television personality.

MIAMI Florida
has the nation's
highest rate of iden-
tity theft, led by the
fraud-wracked Miami
area, and thieves are
increasingly using the
ill-gotten personal in-
formation to rip off the
government through
fraudulent tax refunds,
a top federal prosecu-
tor said Wednesday.
The identity theft
rate in Florida in 2012
was more than 361
complaints for every
100,000 residents,
according to the most


recent Federal Trade
Commission data.
Georgia was next at
194 complaints per
100,000 residents,
followed by California
and Michigan at about
122 complaints each
and NewYork at 110.
The 2012 figures are
the most recent.
Among metropolitan
areas, the Miami region
topped the identity
theft charts just
as it has previously
for Medicare fraud
and mortgage fraud
- at more than 645
complaints for every
100,000 residents,
according to the FTC.


Florida has all five top
identity theft regions:
Naples, Tampa-St.
Petersburg, Fort
Myers-Cape Coral and
Tallahassee round out
the national top five.
U.S. Attorney
Wifredo Ferrer, whose
district covers South
Florida and the Florida
Keys, said in an inter-
view that identity theft
could spike even high-
er this year as income
tax filing season gets
underway. A criminal
armed with only a
laptop and an Internet
connection can
easily file hundreds of
fraudulent tax returns


seeking thousands or
even millions of dollars
in refunds, he said.
"This is the fastest
growing and most
pervasive scheme we
are seeing," Ferrer said.
"It spreads like a virus."
Ferrer said his office
has prosecuted 270
defendants since
an identity theft-tax
fraud strike force was
formed in 2012. Those
cases involved some
$449 million in fraud-
ulent tax refund claims
and about 76,700
identity thefts.
Even so, Ferrer said
the Internal Revenue
Service's inspector


general has estimated
there will be $21 billion
in fraudulent refund
claims made nation-
wide over the next five

said. "We're not done
by any stretch of the
imagination."

The Sun/Thursday, January 16, 2014


WASHINGTON (AP) -
President Barack Obama's
blueprint for overhauling
the government's sweeping
surveillance program is
just the starting point. The
reality is few changes could
happen quickly without
unlikely agreements from
a divided Congress and
federal judges.
The most contentious
debate probably will be
over the future of the
National Security Agency's
bulk collection of tele-
phone records from mil-
lions of Americans. In his
highly anticipated speech
on Friday, Obama is
expected to back the idea
of changing the program.
But he'll leave the specifics
to Congress, according to
U.S. officials briefed on the
White House review.
That puts key decisions
in the hands of lawmakers
who are at odds over
everything from whether
the collections should
continue to who should
house the data.
Even a widely sup-
ported proposal to put
an independent privacy
advocate in the secretive
court that approves spying
on Americans is coming
under intense scrutiny.


In this Dec. 20 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks
during an end-of-the year news conference in the Brady Press
Briefing Room at the White House in Washington.


Obama has indicated he'll
back the proposal, which
was one of 46 recommen-
dations he received from
aWhite House-appointed
commission. But a senior
U.S. district judge declared
this week that the advocate
role was unnecessary, and
other opponents have con-
stitutional concerns about
whether the advocate
would have standing to
appear in court.
The uncertain road
ahead raises questions
about the practical


impact of the surveillance
decisions Obama will
announce in his speech at
the Justice Department.
The intelligence commu-
nity is pressing for the core
of the spy programs to be
left largely intact, while
privacy advocates fear the
president's changes may
be largely cosmetic.
Stephen Vladeck, a na-
tional security law expert
at American University,
said the key questions will
be "how much of this re-
form conversation is going


to be about curtailing
the specific surveillance
programs and how much
of it is going to be instead
about improving the
checks and balances on
the programs that already
exist."
Obama's speech marks
the end of a monthslong
White House review
spurred by former NSA
analyst Edward Snowden's
revelations about the
secret government
surveillance programs
both at home and abroad.
The disclosures restarted
a dormant debate over
surveillance on Capitol
Hill and among outraged
allies overseas.
For Obama, changing
the overseas spying
program may well be
easier than implementing
domestic reforms. On its
own, the administration
can enact two internation-
al surveillance changes
officials say the president
supports: extending
some privacy protections
to foreign citizens and
tightening the protocols
for decisions on spying
on foreign leaders. Still,
it's unclear whether those
steps will be enough to
soothe international anger.


Study: Birds sync wing beats in V formation


NEWYORK (AP) -The
next time you see birds
flying in aV, consider
this: A new study says
they choreograph the

That's what scientists
concluded after tracking
a group of large black

with a tiny GPS device
to record its position
and every wing flap. One
expert in animal flight
said just gathering that

accomplishment.
Scientists have long
theorized that many
birds like these northern
bald ibises adopt aV for-
mation for aerodynamic
reasons. When a bird
flies, it leaves a wake.

NM shooter warned some students away


ROSWELL, N.M.
(AP) -The 12-year-old
boy who opened fire in
a New Mexico middle
school gym warned some
students away just before
the attack, State Police
Chief Pete Kassetas said
Wednesday.
Kassetas said the attack
at Berrendo Middle
School in Roswell was
planned in advance.
But he said it appeared
the boy's victims an
11-year-old boy and
13-year-old girl -were
chosen randomly.
During a press briefing,
Kassetas declined to
speculate on a motive or
say when charges would
be filed. But he said the
boy got the shotgun


from his family's home
and had three rounds of
ammunition.
"All three rounds were
expended during the
incident," Kassetas said.
"There was no indication
that he had any ammuni-
tion other than what was
loaded in the gun."
Officials also said
Wednesday the 11-year-
old boy who was shot
in the face and neck
remained in critical
condition at University
Medical Center in
Lubbock, Texas. The
13-year-old girl, identi-
fied as Kendal Sanders,
was in satisfactory
condition with injuries
to the right shoulder. The
family of the injured boy


has asked that his name
be withheld while he
recovers.
Kassetas said investi-
gators worked through
the night executing
search warrants at the
school, and determined
through those searches
that the attack was
planned. They exam-
ined the boy's locker
and the duffel bag the
seventh-grader used to
transport the .20 gauge
shotgun to school.
Kassetas said the
handle of the gun was
sawed off so it had "more
of a pistol grip."
The police chief added
authorities had some
indication that the boy
verbally warned "select


students" about the
attack as he arrived at
the school. Kassetas
didn't elaborate. He also
declined to speculate on
a motive.
The whole thing was
over in 10 seconds, officials
said, after the boy shot
at the ceiling, the floor
and then the students. An
eighth-grade social studies
teacher, John Masterson,
then stepped in and talked
the boy into dropping his
weapon.
Masterson and other
teachers were lauded for
taking quick action that
authorities said would
have saved lives had the
boy had more ammuni-
tion, or had there been
another gunman.

Drinking linked
to faster mental
decline in men

NEWYORK (AP) -
Middle-aged men risk a
faster mental decline as
they age if they've been
drinking heavily for years,
new research suggests.
The study of about
5,000 British civil servants
found that over a decade,
the added decline was
the equivalent of about
two extra years of aging
for a combined measure
of mental abilities like
reasoning, and about six
years for memory. The
heavy drinkers' abilities
were compared to those
of men who drank mod-
erately or abstained.
It's no surprise that
heavy alcohol consump-
tion can affect the brain,
but the study focuses
on an age range that
has received much less
attention from alcohol re-
searchers than the elderly
and college students.
The work was pub-
lished online Wednesday
by the journal Neurology.
Researchers found no
such effect in women,
but the study included
too few female heavy
drinkers to test the effect
of drinking the same
amount as in men, said
Severine Sabia, a study
author from University
College London.

CAPE CORAL (AP)
-The Cape Coral Fire
Department is about
to hit prime time in
Germany.
The News-Press of Fort
Myers reports a two-man
crew is following Juergen
Schmidt, 51, a firefighter
from Germany, for a
show called "Achtung
Kontrolle!" The show is
one of the most popular
reality shows aired on


Kabel 1 in Germany. The
segment could air in
March.
The hour-long show
features 15-minute
segments on people
who work in either law
enforcement or other
high-risk professions.
A crew arrived in
southwest Florida last
week to follow Schmidt
as he goes about his
work as a first responder.


They got a close-up
look during a 24-hour
shift as the firefighters
aided a woman who had
fallen and injured herself
to saving the life of a
small child who was not
breathing.
Schmidt speaks fluent
German. He explained
on camera what the
firefighters experienced,
as long as patients give
their permission.


It's actually the second
time Schmidt has been
featured. He said the
department has received
over 100 emails a week
from fans of the show
asking questions.
"A lot of Germans have
a house here or live here
or they come on vaca-

Luecke. "When they
can, they move into the

Michael Heeder, a

show has been good for
the city, too.
"That same dedication
(firefighters) show this

Heeder said. "It's great
for the residents to know
that the city is working
hard."
Schmidt was a police
officer in Germany be-
fore switching to the fire
department. He moved
to Cape Coral in 2001.
He said his co-workers

Black legislators
cancel meeting
with Gov. Scott
TALLAHASSEE (AP)
- Florida's black state
legislators on Wednesday
abruptly canceled a
scheduled meeting with
Gov. Rick Scott, saying
that "nothing" would
come from the one-hour
session.
The Florida Legislative
Black Caucus has met
with the Republican
governor several times
since he took office. All
the caucus members are
Democrats.
But on the eve of
this year's meeting,
the group concluded
that the talk would be
"fruitless" because Scott
has not responded to
previous complaints from
lawmakers.
"We decided this was
not going to be the best
use of our time and that
at the end of the day
nothing would come
out of it," said Rep. Alan
Williams, D-Tallahassee.
Jackie Schutz, a
spokeswoman for Scott,
said the governor was
"disappointed" that the
caucus voted to cancel
the meeting. But Scott
still kept open an hour
on his schedule in case
anyone wanted to still
meet with him.
Williams contended the
decision was not related
to Scott's attempt to win
re-election.
"This is not a matter of
disrespecting the office
of the governor or being
against him politically,"
Williams said.
Scott found out about
the snub personally when
he ran into Williams on
Wednesday morning
while walking through the
Capitol.
"Gov. Scott believes
the best way to serve
Floridians is for the
Legislature and the
governor's office to work
together to find solu-
tions," Schutz said.
Some of the items
that legislators have
questioned Scott about
include judicial appoint-
ments and whether he is
willing to appoint black
judges as well as his deci-
sion to support a propos-
al to make it harder for
convicted felons to win
back voting rights.
Scott previously told
black legislators that he
appoints judges whose
philosophy reflect his
own.
The governor came
under fire from black


legislators in his first
meeting back in 2011,
after he told them that
he "grew up in the same
situation" as they did
because he spent time in
public housing.

Boy recovering
after dad tosses
him off balcony

KISSIMMEE (AP)- A
41-year-old man is
charged with attempted
murder after he tossed
his son off a second
story hotel balcony in
Kissimmee.
The 2-year-old is
expected to recover from
injuries received Tuesday.
Police say Juan Pablo
Maradiaga also jumped
from the balcony. A man
pulling into the Budget
Inn parking lot called
911.
Maradiaga had a severe
leg injury and was taken
to a hospital. Once he's
released, officials say
he'll be taken to jail.
The child was flown to
Arnold Palmer Hospital
in Orlando. His injuries
include a fractured arm
and abrasions but his
mother told WESH "he's
"a miracle baby."
Police say surveillance
video shows the father
walking out of the room
and throwing the baby
over the railing.
The Florida
Department of Children

HOMESTEAD (AP) -
Artists can apply to have
their work on display
at the visitor's center at
Everglades National Park.
The park announced
Tuesday that artists -
especially local, amateur
artists can submit their
applications by March 31.


The artwork can include
a variety of media that
focus on the natural and
cultural beauty of the
Everglades.
The park said it's also
interested in highlighting
artwork done by students.
Superintendent Dan
Kimball says the mis-
sion of the gallery is for
visitors to leave "feeling
inspired to explore the
Everglades and wanting
to help protect this fragile

Westminster dog show adds mixed breeds


NEWYORK (AP) -
Long the province of the
purebred, the Westminster
Kennel Club dog show is
opening a doggie door
this year to mixed-breed
competitors.
While Labradoodles,
puggles and who-knows-
whats won't be able to vie
for the prestigious Best
in Show award, they'll be
included in its new agility
trial.
It's a notable embrace
for the nation's premier
canine event, which also
is adding three breeds at
next month's show: the
chinook, the Portuguese
podengo pequeno and
the rat terrier. No mixed-
breed dogs have appeared
anywhere atWestminster
since the 138-year-old
event's early days, organiz-
ers said at a news confer-
enceWednesday.
But this year, Alfie the
apparently-part-poodle,
part-terrier will be among
the dogs weaving around
poles, walking up a plank
and springing over jumps
on the agility course.
Alfie's background
isn't rarefied. Owner

Eisenhower formally assumed
command of the Allied
Expeditionary Forces in London.
On this date
In 1547, Ivan IV of Russia
(popularly known as"lvan the
Terrible") was crowned Czar.
In 1883, the U.S. Civil Service
Commission was established.
In 1920, Prohibition began
in the United States as the
18th Amendment to the U.S.
Constitution took effect, one
year to the day after its ratifica-
tion. (It was later repealed by
the 21st Amendment.)
In 1935, fugitive gangster
Fred Barker and his mother,
Kate "Ma" Barker, were killed
in a shootout with the FBI at
Lake Weir, Fla.
In 1942, actress Carole
Lombard, 33, her mother
Elizabeth and 20 other people
were killed when their plane
crashed near Las Vegas, Nev.,
while en route to California from
a war-bond promotion tour.
In 1957, three B-52's took
off from Castle Air Force Base in
California on the first non-stop,
round-the-world flight by jet
planes, which lasted 45 hours
and 19 minutes.
In 1978, NASA named 35
candidates to fly on the space
shuttle, including Sally K. Ride,
who became America's first
woman in space, and Guion
S. Bluford Jr., who became
America's first black astronaut
in space.
In 1989, three days of rioting
began in Miami when a police
officer fatally shot Clement
Lloyd, a black motorcyclist,
causing a crash that also
claimed the life of Lloyd's
passenger, Allan Blanchard. (The
officer, William Lozano, was
convicted of manslaughter, but
then was acquitted in a retrial.)
In 1991, the White House
announced the start of
Operation Desert Storm to drive
Iraqi forces out of Kuwait.
In 2003, the space shuttle
Columbia blasted off for what
turned out to be its last flight;
on board was Israel's first
astronaut, Ilan Ramon. (The
mission ended in tragedy on
Feb. 1, when the shuttle broke
up during its return descent,
killing all seven crew members.)

NEWYORK (AP) It

After piercing its all-

Verizon victory on
net-neutrality seen
as loss for Netflix

(Bloomberg) -Verizon
Communications' legal
victory over the Federal
Communications
Commission lets the
carrier charge extra fees
for speedier delivery of
online content, poten-
tially increasing costs for
Netflix and other Internet
companies.
The U.S. Court of
Appeals in Washington
decided in favor of
Verizon Tuesday, striking
down the FCC's so-called
net-neutrality rules. The
regulations would have
required Internet service
providers to treat all on-
line traffic equally, rather
than giving preference
to companies willing to
pay extra fees for faster
service.


S&P 500 was down
1.6 percent.
But a combination of
positive economic reports
and strong earnings on
Wednesday sent all three
major indexes higher.
The S&P 500 gained 9.50
points, or 0.52 percent, to
1,848.38. The last closing
high was 1,848.36 on Dec.
31, 2013. With Wednesday's
rise, the index is now
basically flat for the year.
In 2013 the S&P 500 closed
at record highs 45 times.
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average closed up
108.08 points, or
0.7 percent, to 16,481.94.
It is 94.72 points from
its closing high, just
one good up day away.
The Nasdaq composite
rose 31.87 points, or
0.76 percent, to 4,214.88.
The tech-heavy index is
still 16 percent below its
high during the dot-comn
bubble more than a
decade ago.


With the restrictions
lifted, carriers like
Verizon, AT&T and Time
Warner Cable could be
free to charge Internet
companies higher rates
for preferred treatment
- expenses that may
ultimately be passed on
to consumers. Netflix,
Google's YouTube and
Amazon.com, meanwhile,
face higher costs of doing
business, changing the
industry's economics. In
Netflix's case, the expens-
es could climb into the
hundreds of millions of
dollars a year, according
to Wedbush Securities.

Bank of America

its mortgage division,

7 ways to cut phone costs


uTo can save hun-
dreds of dollars
per year by mak-
ing smart choices, ac-
cording to Consumer
Reports. Here's how:
Consider prepaid
service. Pay-as-you-
go plans used to
come with limited
service and bare
bones phones. Not
anymore. Prepaid
providers now have
more smartphones,
and some offer fast
4G connections.
Consumer Reports'
subscribers gave
those services some of
its highest scores for
satisfaction. If you're
not a marathon talker,
texter or Web surfer,
you'll usually come
out ahead by paying
only for what you
use. You'll probably
pay more upfront for
a phone if you don't
sign a two-year con-
tract, but the savings
on service can more
than make up for that
over time.
Be strategic when
you surf. To keep from
burning through your
monthly allowance,
beware of data hogs
such as streaming
video and music and
playing games on-
line. You can usually
monitor data usage
in real time using
your carrier's app,
such as MyVerizon
Mobile. Use Wi-Fi as
much as possible at
home, in the office
or at places such as
Starbucks.
Check for dis-
counts. AT&T, Sprint,
T-Mobile, U.S.
Cellular and Verizon
offer discounts
to employees of
companies that use
their service. To see
whether yours does,
do a Web search for


Consumer

Reports


the carrier's name and
"employee discount."
You'll be directed to a
page on the carrier's
website at which you
can enter your work
email address.
Consider a family
plan. It often pays
to buy in bulk, and
family plans (some-
times called share
plans) usually provide
a discount for buying
service on multiple
lines. For example,
for the usage needs of
an average consumer,
Verizon would charge
$90 per month for
one line and $210 for
four a per-line cost
of only about $53, or a
41 percent savings vs.
buying four separate
lines. Sprint would
charge the same cus-
tomer $70 per month
for one line and $50
per line for four, a
29 percent discount.
Wait to buy that
hot phone. Resist
buying the latest
must-have phone
until a newer model
comes out, and you
may be able to get
it at a much lower
price. For example,
if you bought the
Samsung Galaxy S
III from Sprint when
it first came out, it
would have set you
back more than $200
upfront. When the S4
arrived, the SIII price
dropped to $100, and
it's now $0 with most
service contracts.
Go beyond the
carrier store. Your
local cellphone store
may be the first place
you think of going to
buy a phone, but you
might get a better


deal elsewhere. When
Consumer Reports
surveyed almost
9,800 subscribers
in 2012, the Apple
Store, Apple.com and
VerizonWireless.com
got below-average
scores for price.
ATT.com, Best Buy,
RadioShack and U.S.
Cellular stores were
average for price.
Costco and Wal-Mart
were the only cell-
phone retailers in the
survey that received
above-average scores
for price. Costco
is among the best
venues for bargain
hunters, provided you
can find what you
want in its limited
selection.
Think twice about
add-ons. Like other
service providers,
cellular carriers try to
lard on extras, includ-
ing navigation, insur-
ance and GPS tracking
of your children.
Assess those offers
carefully. You might
be better off paying
$1 per day for maps
and directions only
when you need them,
rather than paying
a $5 navigation fee
every month. And
take a pass on phone
insurance, which runs
about $7 to $11 a
month, or up to $264
over two years. Only
one in five survey
respondents had to
replace a lost, broken
or stolen phone, so
you probably won't
collect. If you do,
you'll face a deduct-
ible of up to $200,
and the replacement
may be a refurbished
model. Better to hang
on to an old phone
in case you need a
replacement until you
qualify for the next
upgrade.

Vigilantes reject
disarming in
Mexico standoff
APATZINGAN, Mexico
(AP) Federal forces
struggled to bring
order to western Mexico
Wednesday as vigilantes
battled a vicious drug car-
tel that apparently tried
to reassert its authority
by burning a downtown
pharmacy to enforce its
orders that no businesses
should open.
The fire attack came
just two blocks from the
Apatzingan city center
where, the day before,
dozens of federal police
had paraded in an im-
pressive display of force
meant to re-impose order
in a region where heavily
armed vigilantes have
taken up a freelance fight
against the drug gang.
An employee of the
pharmacy said two men
pulled up with jerry cans
of gasoline and began
dousing the store and its
merchandise. "They just
told us to get out, because
they were going to burn
the place," she said.
The employee, part of
whose hair was burned
off in the attack, refused
to give her name for fear
of reprisals.
Owners of other stores
have said that cartel
gunmen have ordered
them to close or risk
being burned down.

Trial in 2005 death
of former Lebanon
premier set to start
THE HAGUE,
Netherlands (MCT) -An
international tribunal
was set Thursday to begin
the court case against
five men accused in a
February 2005 bomb-
ing that killed former
Lebanese Prime Minister
Rafik Hariri and 22 others.
The attack, which many
have linked to Syria, led to
popular uprisings across
Lebanon and, ultimately,
to a diminishing of Syrian
influence on the country.
The case starts nearly
nine years after the attack.
The Special Tribunal for
Lebanon, based outside
the Hague, was set up
specifically to investigate
the 2005 attack. It will
be the first international
court case related to an
incident of international
terrorism.
Five Lebanese citizens
stand accused of the
attack. Another man also
alleged to be involved
in the plot died in the
attack. However, all of the
men are fugitives, which
will make this the first
international tribunal
case in which none of the
accused are present.


Iraqi army retakes
western town
seized by gunmen
BAGHDAD (AP) Iraqi
officials say army troops
backed by airstrikes have
retaken a town that had
been seized by al-Qaida
linked militants in a
mainly Sunni area west of
Baghdad.
Senior military offi-
cials sayWednesday's
counterattack came a
day after heavily armed
gunmen surrounded
the main police station
in Saqlawiya and forced
all the policemen to
relinquish their weapons
and leave. Militants then
gained control of the rest
of the Anbar province
town.
Security forces then
launched airstrikes
against the gunmen, who
fled, allowing Iraqi troops
to enter the town later
Wednesday.

Kerry plays down
spat with Israeli
defense chief
JERUSALEM (AP)-
U.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry on Wednesday
played down criticism by
Israel's defense minister of
American efforts to broker
peace in the Middle East,
saying he wouldn't let "one
set of comments" under-
mine his work.
With his subdued reac-
tion, Kerry appeared to
be attempting to quickly
move beyond the uproar
that exploded Tuesday
over comments reported-
ly made by Israeli Defense
Minister Moshe Yaalon,
in which he called Kerry
"obsessive" and "messian-
ic." After harsh criticism
from Washington, Yaalon
issued a late-night apolo-
gy. Speaking to reporters
in Kuwait, Kerry said that
he speaks regularly with
Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu and
said they were both "very
committed" to moving
forward on peace efforts.

Somali pirates
seize fewer ships
LONDON (Bloomberg)
Somali pirates hijacked
the fewest merchant ships
since 2004 last year as
armed guards and naval
patrols helped deter and
repel attacks on a trade
lane linking Europe to
Asia. The number of
vessels seized off the East
African country's coast fell
to two last year from 14
in 2012, the International
Maritime Bureau, a
London-based group
tracking sea crime, said
in a report Wednesday.
Last year's tally was the
smallest since 2004, data
from the bureau show.


Egyptians vote 2nd day for charter


CAIRO (AP)-
Undeterred after a day
of sporadic violence,
Egyptians onWednesday
lined up to vote on the
second, final day of a key
referendum on the coun-
try's new constitution.
The vote is a milestone
in a military-backed polit-
ical roadmap toward new
elections for a president
and a ballot-box test of
public opinion on the
coup that removed Islamist
President Mohammed
Morsi and his Muslim
Brotherhood from power
last July.
The charter is almost
certain to win a majority
approval, following an
intense endorsement
campaign in the mostly
pro-military media. Nearly
all voters interviewed
by The Associated Press
said they backed the new
constitution.


Those who campaigned
against the draft have been
arrested and now face
criminal charges. Monitors
suspected of Brotherhood
ties were not given permis-
sion to oversee the vote,
and judges in charge
of supervising the vote -
were carefully selected to
weed out those suspected
of links to the group.
Hours after polls
reopened at 9:00 a.m
Wednesday, the turnout
appeared lighter than on
the first day but the mood
was upbeat.
In Cairo's upscale east-
ern district of Heliopolis,
patriotic songs about
the military blared from
loudspeakers mounted
on pickup trucks. A
small group of female
voters ululated in approval
outside a polling center in
the central Mohandessin
district. Many voters at the


scene said the referendum
consigned Morsi and the
Brotherhood to a bygone
era.
"This constitution is a
nail in the coffin of the
Muslim Brotherhood,"
said Badiea Mansour, a
65-year-old former tourism
employee.
Newspapers, most of
which are pro-military,
claimed a "heavy" turn-
out on Tuesday was a
defeat for Morsi and the
Brotherhood.
"The elephant smashed
the ant," read a headline
in the daily el-Watan.
"Millions defy terror of
the (Brotherhood) orga-
nization in referendum
lines."
In an attempt to
disrupt the vote, a group
of pro-Morsi protesters
took to the subway tracks
in Cairo's southernmost
Helwan station, forcing the


trains to stop, according
to a security official. Police
intervened to disband the
demonstration, he said,
speaking on condition of
anonymity in line with
regulations.
On Tuesday, dozens of
protesters burned tires and
pelted police with rocks
and firebombs in several
villages near the Giza
Pyramids and in southern
cities known as strong-
holds of the Brotherhood
and Islamists in general,
creating just enough ten-
sion to keep many voters
at home. Health Ministry
said Tuesday's death toll
reached 11.
Col. Ahmed Mohammed
Ali, the military spokes-
man, said the violence
was a "desperate attempt
to stop the train of Egypt
from heading toward the
future" that would not
succeed.


NEWDELHI
(Bloomberg) Police were
seeking eight suspects in
connection with the gang
rape of a Danish tourist in
the center of India's capital,
the latest incident expos-
ing the dangers for women
in the world's second-most
populous nation.
Police Wednesday
released 15 detained
men who had provided
information on the
suspects, Deputy Police
Commissioner Alok
Kumar said by phone. Two
people were arrested late
Wednesday, Press Trust of
India reported, citing an
unidentified police official.
The 51-year-old woman
told police she was raped


at knife-point by a group of
men early in the evening of
Jan. 14 in a neighborhood
popular with backpackers
and budget tourists.
"The message being
sent to the world is that
if you are a woman, you
shouldn't come to India
alone," said Ranjana
Kumari, director of Centre
for Social Research, a
women's advocacy group
in New Delhi. "We're not
doing enough to stop these
attacks."
The case adds to
safety concerns that risk
deterring tourists from vis-
iting India, where reported
rapes jumped 57 percent
over the past decade. The
growth rate of visitors to


India slowed to 4.1 percent
last year following the
December 2012 gang rape
and murder of a medical
student in a moving Delhi
bus, the weakest pace in
four years and below the
average 9.9 percent growth
rate since 2004.

Andy Warhol on exhibit at The Dali Museum


ST. PETERSBURG (AP)
- AndyWarhol was an
early adopter of selfies, if
a new exhibit showcasing
his work is any indication.
The iconic pop artist's
work is showcased in
a large new exhibit at
The Dali Museum in St.


Petersburg, Fla., and it
includes paintings, draw-
ings and yes, self-por-
traits taken with the
Instagram of the 1970s, a
Polaroid.
There's Warhol posing
with a skull, Warhol look-
ing moody in black and


white and Warhol wedged
in between John Lennon
andYoko Ono (bonus
points: celebrity selfie!).
And despite the 1970s
clothing and Studio 54-era
glitter of the art and
photographs, the exhibit
feels fresh. Warhol's vision

corn.
The exhibit of more
than 100 works and
some films opens to the
public Saturday and runs
through April 27. The
works are on loan from
the Warhol Museum in
Pittsburgh, where Warhol
was born and raised
before moving to New
York City
It's a first for The
Dali, which is an entire
museum devoted to the
surrealist master's work.
Museum executive
director Hank Hine said
during a media tour
Wednesday that the
exhibit called "Warhol:
Art. Fame. Mortality." is
the first large-scale special
exhibit for the museum
since it moved into a stun-
ning new building along
St. Petersburg's waterfront
in 2011.
"This is totally appro-
priate to the legacy of
Dali," said Hine.
The exhibit showcases
some of Warhol's famous
silkscreens, including
a red self-portrait
taken a year before
he died. There's also
several panels of Jackie
Kennedy Onassis and
a few quirky versions
of his Campbell's soup
cans. There are also TV

An Andy Warhol exhibit entitled "Jackie" a series of photos of
former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, is seen in a media tour
Wednesday, at The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Fla. "Warhol:
Art. Fame. Mortality." opens to the public on Jan. 18 and runs
until April 27.


monitors set up to show
the artist's "screen tests,"
short films of a single
person against a plain
background.
Dali and Warhol had
much in common, Hine
said, and the exhibit
contains two photos of
the men goofing around
in a hotel room together.
Dali was a generation
older born in 1904 -
than Warhol, who was
born in 1928, but both
captivated the public with
their attention-getting
and sometimes contro-
versial works of art.
Warhol often visited
Dali when Dali stayed
in a suite at the St. Regis
Hotel in New York (one
story goes that Dali tied
Warhol to a spinning
board and splattered


paint over him). Warhol
also made one of his
famous "screen tests" of
Dali, and like the others
filmed, Warhol told Dali
not to move during the
three-minute filming.
Dali ignored Warhol's
instruction to sit still and
left the frame.
The exhibit not only
shows Warhol's screen
tests, but offers viewers
to do their own.
The show has a
replica of his screen test
set where visitors can sit
in front of a camera and
then send their "tests"
to Twitter and Facebook
- allowing everyone
their ubiquitous 15 min-
utes of fame on social
media.
Warhol would have
approved.

Bobcats' senior UP NEXT


leads late charge

to beat Pirates
By CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
NORTH PORT -When North
Port High School needed a cool
hand in a hot game, senior guard
Justyn Miller delivered.
Miller scored eight of his game-
high 18 points in the fourth quar-
ter, including a pair of three-point-
ers that proved to be the difference
in the Bobcats' 63-62 victory over


Port Charlotte: at Charlotte in Wally Keller
Classic, Friday, 7:20 p.m.
North Port: vs. Sarasota, Friday, 7:30 p.m.

Port Charlotte on Wednesday in a
nondistrict contest.
With Port Charlotte on top 53-
52, Miller sank a 3-pointer to give
the Bobcats (16-3) the lead for
good, then capped off an 8-0 run
with another trey to extend the
lead to 60-53 with 3:18 remaining.
"He's a good shooter, and we
tell him that's his job," North Port
coach Travis Slanger said. "We had
guys set screens for him, they did


their job and he did his. It helps
alleviate the pressure on our point
guard and opens up the post."
The Pirates (11-6), which had
overcome a 10-point lead in the
third quarter, chipped away before
Kyle Collins hit a three to make it
63-62 with three seconds left.
Port Charlotte had a chance to
win after Brian Thatcher missed
the front end of a one-and-one,
but Harrison Rains' 50-footer at the
buzzer bounced off the backboard.
"It was a big win. We played
great defense. We focused on
their main players inside," Miller
said. "We had a plan to double

* GIRLS SOCCER: Lakewood Ranch 5, North Port 1


Mustangs overpower Bobcat girls


By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER
BRADENTON For North
Port High School, the shock of
the loss was long over before the
final goal by a startled Lakewood
Ranch freshman and the full-time
whistle that came right after.
That's what happens in post-
season games like North Port's 5-1
loss to unbeaten Lakewood Ranch
in the the District 4A- 11 semifi-
nals Tuesday.


It allowed Bobcats coach Lee
Thomas to be reflective after
the game with the team he had
identified before the season as
young, maybe too young.
The powerhouse Mustangs
move on to the district finals to
face Braden River, and they're
probably expected to be there.
Talia Falco scored twice for
Lakewood Ranch (19-0-1) and
Lindsay Martinez added a
first-half goal for the Mustangs,


who turned in a sound, mature
performance.
The Bobcats (8-9) had to take
consolation in Maddison Krstec's
goal in the 48th minute on a feed
from Isabelle Rogers, a break-
through of sorts.
"We've gone a long time with-
out scoring on Lakewood Ranch,"
North Port coach Lee Thomas
admitted.
There was also consolation in

Braden River


blanks Tarpons


By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
BRADENTON-
Charlotte High School's
postseason magic ran out
quickly Wednesday night.
The Tarpons fell behind
in the first minute of the
district semifinal game
when Braden River's
Ashlyn Schellentrager
scored off an assist from
Carly Provan.
The goal set a tone that
played out very differently
from the one in Charlotte's
surprise win against
Venice in the first round
of district play on Monday
night. The Tarpons
controlled the ball well on
Monday, but couldn't put


together lengthy posses-
sions against the Pirates in
a 4-0 loss.
"I don't think we were
mentally prepared. When
you give up a goal that
quickly that's usually
what it comes down to,"
Charlotte coach Toni
Ivankovic said. "We made
a lot of small technical
mistakes. Braden River's a
good team, very fast, good
speed of play and they
took advantage of those
mistakes tonight. That's
what happens."
Braden River scored
again in the 28th minute,
then put the dagger into
the Tarpons when Abigail
Holmes scored from about

Novak Djokovic makes a forehand return to Leonardo Mayer during their second-round match
Wednesday at the Australian Open.



Being Novak Djokovic


Serbian player

matures as a

player, person

in 5 years

By DENNIS PASSA
ASSOCIATED PRESS
MELBOURNE, Australia
- Six Grand Slam singles
titles and more than $58
million in career prize
money appear not to have
affected Novak Djokovic's
perspective on life, both
on and off the tennis
court.
Not long after the
Serbian star's 6-0, 6-4,
6-4 win Wednesday over
Leonardo Mayer at the
Australian Open his
24th win in a row at
Melbourne Park as he
attempts to capture
his fourth consecutive
Australian title he was
asked to explain the best
part of being him.
"Well, usually I do not
like to talk too much about
myself, I leave that to oth-
er people," Djokovic said.
"I think they can make a


judgment about who I am
and how good or not good
I am on the court and off
the court.
"But for me it's im-
portant to always know
where I come from, be
grateful for the life that I
have. Since I was four or
five years old I played this
sport, always dreamed of
playing on this stage, so I
don't take any situation for
granted. Being aware of all
these things is the best of
being Novak Djokovic."
The 26-year-old former
No. 1 didn't take anything
for granted Wednesday
on Rod Laver Arena,
preferring to get off
the court as quickly as
possible in the continuing
hot temperatures a
high of 42 degrees Celsius
(108 Fahrenheit) at
Melbourne Park.
Attempting to become
the first player to win
five Australian Open
titles since the start of
the Open Era in 1968,
Djokovic appeared to be
in peak fitness -except
for a turned left ankle
that caused him some


momentary discomfort.
He says it won't be a
problem when he returns
to the court Friday to play
Denis Istomin in the third
round.
Five years ago, before
his dietary changes,
Djokovic was anything but
supremely fit in the hot
Australian conditions. It
was never more apparent
than when he retired from
his 2009 Australian Open
quarterfinal against Andy
Roddick due to a heat-re-
lated ailment.
"Obviously as the years
go by, I'm more mature
as a player, as a person,"
Djokovic said when asked
to explain the differences
in his condition between
then and now.
"I learned new things in
life. I develop myself. I'm
physically got stronger,
mentally also. All of this
plays, of course, an im-
portant role when you are
playing in such conditions.
Generally it's much more
efficient for me nowadays
to recover and to get ready
for next point than it used
to be 2009."


By JOHN PYE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
MELBOURNE, Australia
- Maria Sharapova sur-
vived the searing heat and
an intense challenge from
Karin Knapp to advance
to the third round of the
Australian Open with a
grueling 6-3, 4-6, 10-8 win
in 3 hours, 28 minutes.
The temperature was
forecast to spike at 111
degrees today, on the
third straight day of a
heat wave. Organizers
were forced to enact the
Extreme Heat Policy,
suspending six matches
on outside courts.
Despite serving three
double-faults in the last
game, the third-seeded
Sharapova held on to win
on her fourth match point
when Knapp made con-
secutive errors at deuce.
"It's tough for both of
us. We fought as hard as
we could," Sharapova


said. "She played some of
the best tennis I've seen
her play."
Sharapova, playing
her second tournament
back from extended time
off for a right shoulder
injury, wore ice vests in
every changeover after
the third game, draped
ice bags over shoulders
and poured water over her
head.
Sharapova recalled
a first-round match in
sauna-like conditions
in Australia in 2007 that
she won 9-7 in the third
against Camille Pin and
where "I remember being
really close to passing
out."
"I'm feeling much better
now," she said.
She'll next meet No. 25
Alize Cornet of France,
who sobbed on court
after coming back to beat
Camila Giorgi of Italy 6-3,
4-6, 6-4 in 2 12 hours.


"I think I spent enough
time on this court for
today," Cornet said. "I
went really further than
my limits. It was really
hot, that's why I'm so
emotional. Doing some-
thing physical in this heat
it's just unbelievable."
No. 29 Anastasia
Pavlyuchenkova also
complained about the
heat after her 6-2, 6-2 win
over Mandy Minella.
Pavlyuchenkova
finished in 1 hour, 17 min-
utes, but said it still took
a toll. She said she nearly
passed out on court in her
first-round match.
"It's really tough to play
your best," she said.
No. 11 Simona Halep
had a 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 win
over American Varvara
Lepchenko, who only won
one game after needing
treatment for heat-related
problems late in the
second set.

SNFL NOTEBOOK



Vikings hire Bengals' Zimmer as coach


Bucs rookie
arrested on
drug charges
FROM WIRE REPORTS
MINNEAPOLIS -Mike
Zimmer, known as a
no-nonsense disciplinari-
an, is the new coach of the
Minnesota Vikings.
A 20-year veteran
NFL assistant coach
who worked with Hall
of Famer Bill Parcells in
Dallas before turning
the Cincinnati Bengals'
defense around as their
defensive coordinator the
past six seasons, Zimmer
will be named the ninth
head coach in the Vikings'
54-year history.
Zimmer, a 57-year-old
who has never been a
head coach at any level,
replaces Leslie Frazier,
who was fired on Dec. 30,
and becomes the third


head coach hired since
current owners Zygi and
MarkWilf bought the
team in 2005.
The hiring on
Wednesday came six
years to the day Zimmer
was brought in by the
Bengals as their defensive
coordinator.
"It's a good hire," said
defensive end Brian
Robison. "I think he's one
of those guys that's very
passionate. Obviously
he's going to expect the
best out of his players
week-in, week-out, and
I think it's a great job.
(General manager) Rick
(Spielman) and the (staff)
did their homework as far
as interviewing a bunch
of guys and came up
with what best suits our
organization."
The intense Zimmer will
be a change from Frazier,
who was usually calm and

"We've got the guys in

throw at us," Robison said.
"We got a lot of mentally
tough guys that, if you
look at our season last
year, things weren't going
the way they needed to
be. Guys stayed in and
fought hard, so I think we
have guys that can pretty

Underclassmen


feel the draft in


record numbers


By STEVE MEGARGEE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
South Carolina de-
fensive end Jadeveon
Clowney and Texas A&M
quarterback Johnny
Manziel headline a record
number of underclassmen
entering the NFL draft
heading into Wednesday
night's deadline.
At least 90 players
with college eligibility
are expected to enter the
draft, shattering last year's
record number of 73.
"It's a humongous
number, so the first
reaction is it makes you
step back a little bit," said
NFL Network draft analyst
Daniel Jeremiah, a former
scout with the Baltimore
Ravens, Cleveland Browns
and Philadelphia Eagles.
"What I'm hearing is that
the agents always have to
make the sales pitch to get
these to come out. This
year, what I've been told
is the sales pitch is that all
your money right now is
coming from the second
contract, so you need to
come out early so you can
get to that second con-
tract a year earlier ... and
apparently it's been pretty
effective."
ESPN analyst Mel Kiper
Jr. released a mock draft
Wednesday in which
23 of the 32 first-round
picks were early entries.
Kiper had Manziel going
first overall and included
Clowney, UCF quarter-
back Blake Bortles and
Clemson wide receiver
SammyWatkins as top-
five picks. Jeremiah's list of
the top 50 draft prospects
includes early entries
in the top three spots:
Clowney at No. 1, Watkins
at No. 2 and Auburn
offensive tackle Greg


Robinson at No. 3.
"It's going to be a huge
number of underclassmen
that go high and have
long careers," Jeremiah
said. 'And there are going
to be some other guys
who don't get drafted and
will be in a tough spot
and would have been
better served to go back
to school. It works both
ways."
Here's a position-by-po-
sition breakdown of some
of the early entries.

QUARTERBACK
Manziel, Bortles and Louisville's
Teddy Bridgewater are all projected
first-round picks. Although the 6-foot-1
Manziel lacks the size of Bortles and
Bridgewater, the 2012 Heisman Trophy
winner played tougher competition in
the Southeastern Conference. Jeremiah
ranks Manziel as his No. 7 overall
prospect, with Bridgewater 10Oth and
Bortles 22nd. Kiper's mock draft has
Bridgewater getting taken eighth.
Wyoming's Brett Smith could get
chosen later in the draft.

RUNNING BACK
Auburn's Tre Mason boosted his
stock by rushing for 663 yards against
Alabama, Missouri and Florida State
over his final three games. Jeremiah
rates Mason 47th overall and second
among running backs, behind Ohio
State senior Carlos Hyde. Other notable
running backs to enter the draft include
Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey, Washington's
Bishop Sankey, Oregon's De'Anthony
Thomas, LSU's Jeremy Hill, UCF's Storm
Johnson and Florida State teammates
Devonta Freeman and James Wilder Jr.

WIDE RECEIVER
The impact of underclassmen on
the draft is perhaps most evident at
wide receiver. Kiper's mock draft has
seven early entry receivers going in
the first round: Watkins, Texas A&M's
Mike Evans (13), Southern California's
Marqise Lee (18), Florida State's Kelvin


AP PHOTO
Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin, catching the game-winning touchdown in front of Auburn's Chris
Davis in the BCS championship on Jan. 6, will be one of at least 90 underclassmen in the NFL draft.


Benjamin (22), Oregon State's Brandin
Cooks (28), LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. (30)
and Penn State's Allen Robinson (32).
Jeremiah has nine listed among his top
50 overall prospects. And that doesn't
factor in the available tight ends. Kiper
has North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron
going 16th overall and Texas Tech's Jace
Amaro 29th.

OFFENSIVE LINE
Robinson has parlayed a break-
through season at Auburn into a likely
top-10 selection in the draft. Alabama's
Cyrus Kouandjio and Tennessee's
Antonio "Tiny" Richardson could join
him in the first round.


DEFENSIVE LINE
The headliner here is Clowney,
who may have the most upside of any
prospect regardless of position. Florida
State tackle Timmy Jernigan also is
a potential top-10 pick. Notre Dame
teammates Louis Nix and Stephon
Tuitt as well as Missouri's Kony Ealy
could both get taken in the first round.
Florida tackle Dominique Easley was
playing at an All-America level this
fall before tearing his anterior cruciate
ligament.

LINEBACKER
Ohio State's Ryan Shazier is rated


as the No. 31 overall prospect by
Jeremiah. Other linebackers turning pro
early include Florida's Ronald Powell,
California's Khairi Fortt, Alabama's
Adrian Hubbard and Connecticut's
Yawin Smallwood.

DEFENSIVE BACK
Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
and Louisville safety Calvin Pryor are
both listed as first-round picks in Kiper's
mock draft and top-15 prospects
in Jeremiah's rankings. Ohio State
cornerback Bradley Roby, rated 50th
overall by Jeremiah, is the 25th pick in
Kiper's mock draft.

back

ByMARCTOPKIN
TAMPA BAY TIMES
ST. PETERSBURG- Of
the 24 Tampa Bay Rays
prospects gathered
Wednesday in the
Tropicana Field clubhouse
as part of the winter
development camp, OF
Josh Sale was undoubtedly
the happiest to be there.
Suspended indefinitely
in May for conduct detri-
mental to the organization,
the 2010 first-round pick
is on track to resume his
once-promising career.
"It was humbling," he
said. "It was a reality check,
definitely. It's an amazing
feeling to be back."
Sale, 22, spent the
forced sabbatical at his
family's Seattle-area
home, speaking almost
daily withVince Lodato, a
therapist who heads the
team's employee assistance
program.
Sale had just completed
a 50-game suspension
after testing positive for a
performance-enhancing
drug the previous season
when the Rays sent him
home after a Facebook
post about a visit to a strip
club. He was set to join
Class A Charlotte.
"I was able to grow up,"
he said, speaking publicly
for the first time since.
"It was demoralizing, but
something that my actions
induced ... nobody's
bigger than the game."
Farm director Mitch
Luekvics said the Rays are
pleased with Sale's prog-
ress and would anticipate
reinstating him from the
restricted list at the end of
spring training, assuming
he continues to progress.

Dodgers make Kershaw 8215 million man SCOUNTDowRAINING


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOS ANGELES-
Pitcher Clayton Kershaw
agreed Wednesday to a
$215 million, seven-year
contract with the Los
Angeles Dodgers, a
person familiar with the
negotiations told The
Associated Press, a deal
that makes the two-
time CyYoung Award
winner baseball's first
player with a $30 million


average salary.
The person spoke on
condition of anonymity
because the agreement
had not yet been
announced.
Kershaw receives the
most lucrative deal for
a pitcher, breaking the
mark of $180 million set
by Justin Verlander last
March for his seven-year
contract with Detroit.
Kershaw would
have been eligible for


free agency after the
upcoming season if the
new deal hadn't been
reached. He was eligible
for salary arbitration, and
those figures were set to
be exchanged on Friday.
He was coming off a two-
year, $20 million deal
that included $200,000
in bonuses in 2012, a
$500,000 escalator to his
2013 base salary, and
$300,000 in bonuses last
year.


Around the majors:
A Major League Baseball Players
Association lawyer said Alex Rodriguez
wanted the union to pursue "extraordi-

Spartans pull STATE SCHEDULE
away from TODAY
Northwestern ETSU at Stetson, 7p.m.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
COLUMBUS, Ohio-
After losing its second
game in a row last Sunday,
Ohio State coach Thad
Matta noticed in the
locker room that fresh-
man Marc Loving was
obviously discouraged.
Matta approached him
and said, "Hey, my man.
This isn't going to be the
only time in your career
you're at a low point. Trust
me. It happens.
"The thing we're trying
to find is, how do we
get back to playing our
consistent our best
- basketball?"
Matta has been preach-
ing this week that the
Buckeyes shouldn't and
can't dwell on the
defeats. After all, it seems
there's always another
major Big Ten test right
around the corner.
Matta, Loving and the
rest of the Ith-ranked
Buckeyes (15-2, 2-2 Big
Ten) are trying to pick
themselves up. Whether
or not they have been
successful likely will
determine the outcome
of tonight's game at
Minnesota (13-4, 2-2).
Judging from the mood
of the players, Matta's
upbeat approach is appar-
ently getting through.
"We were all down at
first. We were pretty upset
by the way we've been
playing lately," point
guard Shannon Scott said.
"But we're starting to get
back our winner's mental-
ity now. We're all positive."

No. 4 Michigan State 54,
Northwestern 40: In Evanston,
III., Gary Harris scored 14 points and
Michigan State beat Northwestern for
its ninth straight win. The preseason
favorite to win the Big Ten, the
Spartans (16-1,5-0 Big Ten) overcame
a sluggish start and pulled away down
the stretch even though they were 2 of
16on3-pointers.

double figures for the
Wizards, who shot a
season-high 55 percent
and closed the game with
a 17-9 run to avoid an
second straight embar-

They had lost seven
of eight at the Verizon

a lead to the Houston
Rockets on Saturday in a
game twice delayed be-

points, and LeBron James
had 25 points, eight
rebounds, seven assists
and four turnovers for the
Heat, who have dropped
three straight, all on the
road. Because the come-
back wasn't completed,
the historic moment of
the game came when
Oden stepped onto the
court for his first regu-
lar-season game since
Dec. 5, 2009.
Oden, who has strug-
gled to overcome knee
injuries throughout his
NBA career, played nine
minutes and scored six
points.
The Heat had been
off since Friday, giving


them time to be feted by
President Barack Obama
on Tuesday for winning a
second consecutive NBA
title. For one half, the
Wizards made Miami look
like a team that will never
again be invited to the
White House.
The Wizards played in
front of their first sellout
crowd this season.

I QUICK HITS

NCAA OPEN TO
DEBATE CHANGES
IN GOVERNANCE
INDIANAPOLIS (AP)
- The NCAA wants the
nation's most powerful
conferences to have
more autonomy on
some of college sports'
thorniest issues. It wants
athletic directors to
have a stronger voice in
decision-making. It wants
the board of directors to
focus on big-ticket items.
And it wants everybody
currently in Division I
engaged in the debate,
which begins today at the
NCAA's annual convention
in San Diego.
"I think the board would
like to charge others
with doing more of the
tactical and complicated
details and the board
should function more
like a board should,"
Chairman Nathan Hatch
told The Associated Press
on Wednesday. "There are
huge issues that face the
NCAA what's the nature
of amateurism, what's the
nature of injuries, what
do you do when there's a
strong critique that it's all
about the money, what
do you do to preserve
academic integrity? That's
what the board should be
dealing with."
After months of discuss-
ing how to overhaul the
NCAAs governance struc-
ture, the board is ready to
put a broad proposal on
the table.

The Hat Trick
DeSoto County plays at Cardinal
Mooneytonight in the District 2A-11
girls soccer championship, one of Rob
Shore's three subjects in The Hat Trick
Wednesday at suncoastsportsblog.com:
DeSoto County had a huge edge
on every other area girls soccer
team going into their respective
district tournaments -the
Bulldogs only needed to win one
game to advance to the district final
and regional playoffs.
Regardless, DeSoto County is
regionals-bound after a 3-2 victory
over Sarasota Military Academy in
a penalty shootout in the District
2A-11 semifinal.
That's two regionals appearances
in five years for a school not known
to be a soccer power pretty


good,eh?
The Bulldogs also got a great
performances for attacking
midfielder Lucero Perez with two
goals, including a rocket from 25
yards out in the 72nd minute that
should have been the game-winner.
"They were OK," Perez said of
the goals.
Keeper Casey Hall, who made the
final save in the penalty shootout,
is in her first year as a goalie after
playing outside hitter on Bulldogs'
volleyball team that won a District
5A-11 title last fall.
"This means the world," Hall said
of going to another district final.
"This is my first year playing (soccer)
and they accepted me like a sister."

the No. 25 senior in the
nation. He's averaging
24.9 points a game, along
with eight rebounds and
four assists.
Allen, who has designs
of claiming this year's Mr.
Basketball accolade, is
headed to Duke as part of
Mike Krzyzewski's banner
2014 recruiting class.
Both players are guards,
meaning they could
spend time matched
against each other.
If you wanted a little
more intrigue, the game
will pit the defending
state champions in
Class 4A (Lake Highland
Prep) and Class 3A
(Providence).
Game on.
'As a Tar Heel fan who
respects Duke's program
the way I do, I'm looking
forward to watching
them play," said Charlotte
coach Tom Massolio, a
staunch North Carolina
fan. "Then down the
road, we'll be watching
them on ESPN. It'll be
awesome."
This sort of elite
talent isn't new to the
Wally Keller Classic. A
Montverde Academy
squad featuring Florida
point guard Kasey Hill
defeated Hialeah Gardens
in 2012.
The year before,
Louisville coach Rick
Pitino made an appear-
ance, ducking in the gym
to get a first-hand look
at a potential recruit.
The slate of games at the
showcase was altered to
accommodate Pitino's
schedule.
"I think more than
anything, that sort of put
a stamp of achievement
on the event," showcase
organizer Donnie Wilkie
said. "(It was like we
were) kinda, sorta big
time."



MUSTANGS

that there will be next
year, when this group
will be more experienced
and battle-tested. North
Port had three seniors on
this year's squad and a
combined 10 freshmen
and sophomores.
And Lakewood Ranch is
a team the Bobcats aspire
to become.
"They made some really
nice runs on the outside
that caught us by sur-
prise," Thomas said. "It's
what I've been preaching
to our team, that is the
direction we're heading."
The Mustangs con-
trolled the flow of play
early, grabbing the lead
when Delaney Riggins re-
directed a Julia Ortiz shot
past North Port keeper
Sabrina Murray. They took
a 2-0 lead into halftime
after Martinez converted a
penalty later in the half.
That might have been
enough, considering
Lakewood Ranch outshot
North Port 11-2 in the first
half.

The showcase begins

of Charlotte and Port
Charlotte in the Wally
Keller Gymnasium. The
Tarpons defeated the
Pirates 95-73 on Dec. 16
at Port Charlotte.
But after that rivalry,
each team still has work
to do. Charlotte will face
Class IA powerhouse
Chipley on Saturday night
immediately after the
Lake Highland Prep-
Providence game.
Port Charlotte will face
Lakewood on Saturday in
another tricky matchup,
part of a Pirates schedule
that has amped in inten-
sity since a late December
showcase game at the
City of Palms Classic.
"We've played all differ-
ent types (of opponents),"
Port Charlotte coach Bill
Specht said on Saturday.
"Next Saturday night's a
totally different, big team
- St. Pete-Lakewood."
The Wally Keller Classic
will also serve as the set-
ting for a Charlotte-Port
Charlotte girls basketball
game on Saturday. North
Port, Lemon Bay and
Venice will also play in
the showcase.
Charlotte and Port
Charlotte aren't the only
teams pulling double
duty at the Wally Keller
Classic. Allen's Providence
team open's the showcase
on Friday night against
Miami-Norland, them-
selves a two-time defend-
ing champion in Class 6A.
Two state champions in
two nights? That's par for
the course in the Keller.
"We obviously sprinkle
in some really, really good
basketball teams from
Florida and the South
if they want to come,"
Wilkie said. "We want to
create as good a show as
we can from a basketball
standpoint."

ball (gave us problems),"
Thomas said. "Their
ability to control us with
their ball control. And
that proved to be the big
difference in the game. We
had trouble moving the
ball and doing the control
things we need."
Krstec scored in the the
second half, cutting the
Lakewood Ranch lead to
3-1. But Falco followed
with her second goal five
minutes later to cut short
the Bobcats' feel-good
moment.
"That's what you want,"
Thomas said. "You want to
be a well-controlled, ball
passing team and they
always have been."
The only surprise at the
end was Mustangs fresh-
man Carolina Nordhausen
unwittingly deflecting a
shot at the end for the
final goal.
Lakewood Ranch coach
Gaetano Virgilio saw
enough to believe.
"You can see it," he said.
"They (North Port) do a
lot of great things. The
more they play together,
the more confident they're
going to get. In a few years,
they're going to be a force."

Senior duo lifts


Port Charlotte


By BRUCE ROBINS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PORT CHARLOTTE -
Seniors Taylor Lindsay
and Courtney Roberson
combined for 55 points,
leading Port Charlotte
High School to a 72-57
victory against county
rival Lemon Bay in a
nondistrict matchup
Wednesday night.
The teams played a
see-saw first quarter.
Consecutive three-point
baskets by Sarah Lutz gave
the Manta Rays a 17-15
lead, and Hayley Smith's
bucket at the buzzer put
Lemon Bay on top 19-18
at the end of the period.
But that was the last
time the Mantas led all
night, as the Pirates (18-5)
dominated the second
quarter by outscoring
Lemon Bay 17-5 to take a
35-24 halftime lead.
"Lemon Bay always gives
us a battle. It's what we
expected," Port Charlotte
coach Kevin Purcell said.
"With 72 points on the
board, you should win
most nights. We need to
work on 57 on the board
for them, but overall, I'm
very, very pleased. We
played zone the entire
night. That's probably the
most zone I've played in
five years. I'm happy with
their performance."
For Lemon Bay coach
Mike Young, it was a case
of missed opportunities.
"We didn't play up to our
potential tonight," Young
said. "We're a better team
than we showed tonight.
For whatever reason, we
don't play the way we're
supposed to play when we
come over here."
Young said the second
quarter has been a
recurring problem for the
Mantas.
"We've had bad second
quarters against a lot of
teams. It never fails. I don't

know if it's fatigue, I don't
know if it's adjustments.
But we still fight and we
still claw."
Lindsay led the Pirates
with 31 points.
"I didn't even know. I
guess I was making free
throws for once," said
Lindsay, who made 11 of
13 from the charity stripe.
"Both of us are really
physical teams. In the
beginning, they were
out-physicalling us. In the
second half we started
running the ball more and
finishing on the layups."
Roberson finished with
24 points, including two
3-pointers in the second
quarter that Purcell said
gave the Pirates a spark.
"She got our motor
going. I thought we made
some poor decisions from
our point guard play in
the first quarter, but then
she started making better
decisions. Taylor Lindsay
was lights out."

Blanc may have had
a rough night from the
field, but he made his
presence felt in the third
quarter after North Port
built a 44-34 lead. The
Pirates got him to the
free-throw line, putting
the Bobcats in the bonus
midway through the
quarter.
That sparked a 10-0
run, with a Chase Leggett
three-pointer tying the
game with 2:46 left in the
third quarter.
Rains' three-point play

Collins hit four 3s to

defeat.
"It was a great game,
we just didn't do enough
defensively. The same
thing we've been doing
to lose to good teams
all year," Port Charlotte
coach Phil Specht said.
"We have big bodies, we
have to use those big
bodies. We gave up too
many put-backs."

See you at the boat show


It's definitely winter in Southwest Florida.
The roads are getting crowded, and there are
plenty of events and activities to partici-
pate in. This past weekend we held the first
WaterLine Trout Scramble. It was an inter-
esting experience, to say the least. I learned
to always have more roasted pig on hand,
and that running out of beer is never a good
thing. But the needy got fed, and people had
a good time.
No rest for the weary: The 13th edition
of the Charlotte County Boat Show kicks
off today and runs through Sunday at the
Charlotte County Fairgrounds. Of course,
WaterLine will be there. More specifically,
WaterLine Publisher Josh Olive and myself
will be there, handing out papers and maps
of the vendor booths.
Many major boat dealers will be on hand
starting at 10 a.m. today. The show will
include more than 250 boats on display and
a variety of marine accessories and services.
Best part of it all is it's free although
parking is $5.
There will be boat lifts, clothing and
yacht brokers, as well as information about
marinas, boatyards, service suppliers and
more. You'll find hundreds of boats from
nearly every local dealer.
Although we all like to bring home free
stuff from the different vendors, perhaps the
best part of the show is learning more about
area boating, safety and fishing. The U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary, Power Squadron and local
yacht clubs can answer just about any ques-
tions you may have about where to go and
how to enjoy the waters of Charlotte Harbor.
Fishin' Frank's Bait & Tackle will be there,
and their crew will hold fishing seminars
throughout all four days of the show. They'll


i


talk about both inshore and offshore fishing,
and will be happy to answer all fishing and
equipment-related questions. Trust me, they
live for this type of stuff. This year, Frank
will bring his fishing simulators, where you
can experience the excitement of catching


everything from a bass to a tarpon. This will
be a free attraction in the seminar area. If you
haven't tried the simulator, you should. I can
vividly remember the burning sensation in my
legs after battling a tarpon.
Yes, winter is here, and there are plenty of

things to do. Enjoy this week's special edition
of WaterLine, and I hope to see you at the show.
The Charlotte County Fairgrounds are at

LEE:
I suggest a new short column titled "What
am I doing wrong," since I frequently ask
myself the same question. I live on Long
Island and have fished salt and fresh water
for 50 years. I have fished Charlotte Harbor
and read WaterLine for years. For me, fishing
this winter is terrible. I fish from my boat and
kayak and only use artificial lures, mostly
Berkley Gulp shrimp on jigheads. I fish the
PGI canals, the U.S.41 and 1-75 bridge areas,
and the Ponce de Leon flats down to Alligator
Creek. Historically, I always catch something,
but this year I hardly get a bite. What am I
doing wrong?

LEE:
When I saw Capt. Ralph Allen's article
entitled "Grounded" and saw the picture in
the background, I thought"Finally." Finally,
someone was going to point out the inappro-
priateness of the marker placed well outside
the navigable channel. As you head south in
lower Lemon Bay just outside Buck Creek, you
pass channel marker 13. The next markers
are 11 and 12 and are about 1,000 yards due
south, requiring about a 40 degree starboard
correction. Here's the problem: About 500
yards almost dead ahead of marker 13, there
is a manatee zone marker right smack in the
middle of shallow water, and it is frequently
mistaken for the next channel indicator. Of
course, captains should always be checking
their charts, but mistakenly heading for the
manatee zone marker is almost a no-brainer
to those not totally familiar with Lemon Bay.
On numerous occasions, mostly on weekends,


I have waved, shouted and otherwise warned
vessels that they're heading for the wrong
marker and sure grounding. The manatee
zone marker needs to be moved or unwary
captains will be putting a lot more calls into
tow boats.

Sheepshead and flounder bites have really started
to pick up. For the sheepshead head out to the jetties
with a small jig head and some frozen shrimp or live
fiddler crabs, and be ready to set the hook. Pompano
have been biting near the Pine Island Sound passes
using small shrimp or pompano jigs. Redfish have been
active around Matlacha and have been being caught on
spoons, rootbeerjerkbaits.


Offshore action has been good. Shrimp are
better than crabs or sand fleas for offshore
sheepies. Grunts and lane snapper are
good there too, but even better at the Power

A little while back, I read an article in The
Coast Guard News man having been rescued
after his 26-foot boat capsized in the area of Pine
Island Sound. The article reported that Sea Tow
contacted the U.S. Coast Guard Station in Fort
Myers after the boater communicated to them
via cell phone, telling them he could not pull
up his anchor due to the sea conditions and he
was taking on water from the stern of his boat.
A 45-foot Coast Guard response boat arrived on
scene in 20 minutes, in time to witness the boat
capsize, throwing the boater into the water. The
boater was quickly pulled from the water and
transported to the station in good condition.
The weather pattern was ugly around that
time, the result of the very large storm system
which caused high winds (at times gale force)
high waves off shore and choppy water for bays
and protected waters. The National Oceano-
graphic Atmospheric Administration's National
Weather Service issued a small craft advisory
which lasted for several days.
A small craft advisory is a type of weather
warning issued by the NWS in coastal areas. It is
issued when winds have reached, or are expected
to reach within 12 hours, a speed slightly less than
gale force. Wind speeds that trigger a small craft
advisory are between 25 and 38 knots. The advi-
sory strongly suggests that wind and wave action
will be hazardous to small craft. Inexperienced
mariners, especially those operating in smaller
vessels, should avoid navigating in these waters.
An official description of a small craft is not
set in stone. However, any vessel that would
be adversely affected by weather conditions as


described by a small craft advisory should be
considered a small craft. (Editor's note: The Coast
Guard Auxiliary unofficially assigns the designa-
tion"small craft"to any boat with a total length of
less than 65 feet.)
"The Coast Guard wants to remind boaters
to always check the weather before leaving the
dock/said Petty Officer 2nd Class Mike Miller, a
crewman at the station. "Weather can deteriorate
quickly, putting boaters in harm's way."
Additionally, the Coast Guard wants to remind
boaters to carry a VHF-FM marine radio. Cell
phones often lose their signal and run out of
battery power after a day on the water. They are
helpful, but not reliable in an emergency. In the
event of an emergency, contact the Coast Guard
on channel 16. Making a Mayday call when you
first realize you are in distress, with your exact
position, will notify not only the Coast Guard but
every boater who hears the distress call that you
are in need of immediate assistance.
Additional recommended emergency safety
equipment include an emergency position-indi-
cating radio beacon (EPIRB), flares, signal mirror
and whistles attached to the life jackets. A ditch
bag, specifically stocked with additional safety
equipment such as an air horn, hand held marine
radio, some snack items and bottled water,
will improve your chances of survival if you are
stranded for a longer period of time.

see you on the water.

To anyone who might be offended by
being called a dummy, get over it. When
it comes to trailering a boat, we were
all dummies once. It's just a stage every
Sboater has to grow past.
If you've been trailering your boat for
years, it's probably second nature to you
by now. This article is not for you. If you've
never dragged a boat behind a truck and
are thinking that doing so might be in your
near future, or if you've done it once or
twice and were scared out of your mind,
read on.
Although I do love teaching people
things, I'll admit that I do have some
selfish motivation for wanting you to get
Better at trailering your boat. See, you
* might be the guy in front of me at the boat
Sramp. I want that guy to be really good
at what he's doing, because if he's not
then he's slowing me down. When I need
to get my boat in the water and there's
someone in front of me backing up, and
going forward, and backing up, and going
forward, and backing up a dozen times,
that's a problem.
Following written instructions for some-
thing like boat trailering is almost as hard
as it is to produce those instructions. It
can also be dangerous. Therefore, I am not
going to even attempt it. Instead, I suggest
you learn from someone who has both
experience and patience (and no, don't
call me). I will tell you the hardest part
for most newbies is remembering which
way to steer when you're backing up. It's
counterintuitive, and your brain will fight
against itself at first.


Once you've learned what to do and how
to do it, you need to practice. You know
where to not practice? At the boat ramp.
You will need to get some actual experi-
ence there, but first you need to get better
at controlling the trailer. An empty parking
lot is ideal, preferably one that doesn't
have parking bumpers all over it. Here you
have room to make mistakes and figure
out how to correct them, and you won't
damage your trailer or be in anyone's way.
After you can maneuver confidently,
you're ready to try it at the ramp. Since
you're new at this, you really ought to
select a time when the ramp isn't busy.
Launching a boat is much easier when you
have the room and time to go at your own
pace without anyone shouting at you.
Do this a few times and you should be
really comfortable with backing your boat
down and getting it in the water. That's
fantastic. However, there are still a few
things you need to keep in mind. I spend a
lot of time at the ramp, so I have watched
people screwing up in countless ways.
Learn from their mistakes and you'll avoid
looking like an idjit.
Don't wait until your boat is on the ramp
to load it, remove the trailer strap, screw
in the plug, etc, etc. That should be done
in the parking lot ahead of time. Once your
truck is on the ramp, it should take you no
more than two or maybe three minutes to
get the boat launched and get your truck
out of the way so the next guy can launch.
Double ramps are for two boats, not
for you to have lots of room to back right
down the middle. That's OK when you're


the only one trying to launch, but when
you're blocking up two spaces with one
boat on a busy day, you're not going to
make too many friends.
When you take your boat off the trailer,
there's usually a little dock right next to the
ramp. That's not there to tie your boat up
- if you do, you're blocking the ramp from
being used. The little dock is for two-person
launching or to quickly offload a passenger.
The long docks running along shore are for
tying up while you park the truck and grab
your tackle. Let common sense be your
guide here: If your boat is going to be in the
way, you're doing it wrong.
There's more to trailers than just being
able to back one up. Upkeep is always a
chore. Most boat trailers have maintenance
issues. I know mine does; it wears out faster
than I can fix it. Salt water is really, really
hard on trailers. I've seen some of the bass
guys'trailers, and they always look new and
shiny. Makes me a little jealous. Of course, I
get to catch bigger fish.
Anyway, there are a few things you can
do to keep your trailer in working order.
Rinse your trailer in fresh water as soon
as possible after every use. Dried-on salt
crust is not good for it in any way. Check
your bearings monthly, and grease them
when necessary. On most hubs, when you
add new grease it will displace any salty
brine that has gotten in. There's no such
thing as over-greasing! When you check
your bearings, give your tires a look. Be
sure they're not balding, low on air or
developing odd bulges at weak spots. Trust
me, there are very few things that will get


your heart pounding like blowing a trailer
tire in traffic, and not in a good way. If your
trailer has brakes, be sure to check them
periodically. In my experience, there are
no brakes that will stand up to salt water
for long.
Salt and electrical devices never mix.
No matter how well your trailer's lights
are insulated against seawater, it's going
to get in there and wreck stuff. And the
nice officer who pulls you over probably
won't care about your excuses he'll just
write you an expensive ticket. That's why
you need to make a habit of checking your
lights every single time you take your boat
out.
Trailering a boat is not really all that
difficult. It can't be just look at some of
the folks who are doing it (yes, I'll include
myself on that list). But don't assume that
it's something you can just go out and
do without getting an education first.
Learn the basics, hone your skills and pay
attention to your trailer. That way, we can
all have fun out on the water instead of
fighting at the boat ramp.

When outfitting your boat, have you
considered including a Spade, a Rocna, or
perhaps a Bulwagga? If not, I fully under-
stand. These are three of the newest genera-
tion of boating anchors being offered to the
public. Each is a variation of the old designs
we all know, but the latest models claim ease
of use, storage, and higher holding power.
While these claims are yet unsubstantiated,
the new designs come with some hefty price
tags. High prices and no history of successful
service might cause us to better look to the
old familiar stand by designs like a Danforth,
mushroom or plow.
While most boating club logos depict a
"kedge"type fouled anchor, very few boaters
carry a kedge. Even with a folding stock, they
are unwieldy to store and have limited holding
power. Most recreational boaters today use a
variation of the kedge called a Danforth. The
Danforth folds fiat and its flukes dig easily into
soft muck. Its hinged shank allows it to dig
in under a horizontal pull and release easily
with a vertical pull. The plow anchor has a
single fluke with a hinged shank. It will dig
itself deeper into sand or muck as additional
horizontal pull is applied. A mushroom anchor
looks like an upside-down mushroom with the
shank as its stem. This design is great on a soft
bottom, particularly for long or permanent
moorings. Its mushroomed head will sink into
the bottom and then depend on suction to hold
it in place.
The Bruce anchor, in large sizes, is
frequently used on large offshore oil and
gas rigs. With its three claws and bent


shank, it looks a little like a flat version of
a shorebird's foot. Its distinct advantage
is that once it is dug into the bottom, it
can turn 360 degrees with wind and tidal
movement and not relinquish its holding
power; yet a sharp vertical pull will result
in a quick release. Another type is a grapnel
anchor with its four to six extension arms.
On some designs, the arms are curved
upward with sharp points on the extremi-
ties. Others have flat arms that fold upward
for storage. This anchor may also be used
to drag and retrieve lost items. The arms
will grab onto bottom projections and hold
fast. The problem with this type is that it
may do harm to coral beds, and once they
have locked onto a projection they may be
difficult to retrieve.
If my description of horizontal pull confuses
you, remember that no anchor will hold well
if the anchor line or rode is exerting a vertical
pull. That is why to allow the anchor to do its
job, you need to have sufficient line out to
achieve a ratio of at least five to seven times
the distance from the bow of your boat to the
bottom and a length of chain to hold the shank
down and absorb upward tugs on the anchor.
The larger this ratio (also known as scope),
the more horizontal the pull will be upon your
anchor, helping it hold fast. Even an expensive
Bulwagga or Spade won't keep the bottom
with a vertical pull. You will learn more about
anchoring at your basic boating class don't
miss it.

SThere are lots of ways to propel boats.
_ Oars, paddles and sails have provided nautical
i propulsion for millennia and are still in use
M today on a multitude of vessels, but during the
" last 150 years humans have figured out how to
M harness the more reliable mechanical energy
Produced by a variety of engines. Early in the
" powerboat game, wood-fired or coal-fired
boilers produced steam which turned paddle-
Swheels. This design still exists today, but has
fallen out of common use because it isn't a
very efficient arrangement.
Today's marine propulsion systems gener-
Sally employ an internal combustion engine
Sor an electric motor to produce energy and a
Submerged, rotating propeller. The propeller
transfers that energy to the water in the form
Sof a prop wash aimed astern, which pushes the
4t boat forward. A variety of fuels, including gaso-
Sline, diesel fuel and even propane, are used to
Power marine engines, and there are several
Sways that engines or motors can be connected
to a propeller. Thirty or 40 years ago, the
u. powerboats found in Southwest Florida were
almost all propelled by one of three arrange-
Sments: Inboard, outboard or inboard-outboard
*r. ;. -.


(sometimes called sterndrive). In recent
decades, the inboard-outboards have all but
disappeared, and today virtually every power-
boat in the region utilizes an outboard motor
or an inboard engine. (Owners of airboats,
jet drives, Go-Devils and other niche systems,
please don't take offense.)
In our region, boats equipped with outboard
motors outnumber by far those outfitted with
inboard engines. Even though there are fewer
of them than there are outboards, there are
applications for which inboard systems are a
better choice, so it's unlikely that inboards will
ever disappear as the inboard-outboards did.
In very general terms, outboard motors are
best suited for smaller, lighter boats and inboard
engines are better for larger, heavier water-
craft. Like most generalizations, this one is full
of exceptions and there is a very large middle
ground where either type of propulsion is a
reasonable proposition. As the manufacturers of
modern outboards produce increasingly powerful
and increasingly reliable motors, outboards are
now appearing on larger and larger vessels.
Following are a few of the pros and cons associ-
ated with each type of propulsion.
*,-:*-U -


DRAFT
This one is simple: If your vessel is going
to spend much time in shallow water, then
you need an outboard motor. Outboards can
be mounted high on the transom, especially
on boats equipped with tunnels or pockets in
the hull, so the boat can be operated at high
speed-in fairly shallow water. They can also
be trimmed and/or tilted way up for slow-
speed operations in even shallower water.
Inboards employ fixed underwater running
gear that hangs beneath the boat, and even
tunnel-equipped inboards which can go fairly
shallow get into trouble in the skinniest of
water. Also, when an outboard-equipped
boat touches the bottom it's usually not a big
deal, but even a slow-speed grounding of an
inboard boat can result in expensive repair
bills.

HORSEPOWER VS. TORQUE
An engine's horsepower rating is not
necessarily indicative of the amount of boat-
moving thrust it provides. Outboard motors
produce high horsepower at high RPMs, but
a big-block gas or diesel inboard engine


qA ~.


produces much more low-speed torque. If
you are at the helm of a 30-foot boat and
engage a 300-hp diesel engine swinging
a 24-inch prop, the boat will immediately
surge ahead, even at idle speed. If the same
boat were powered by a 300-hp outboard
motor, the engine would have to be revved
up substantially to produce the same results
with the much smaller prop required by the
outboard. Any skipper who has struggled to
dock a large vessel in windy conditions will
confirm that the immediate response of an
inboard makes the job much easier.

WEIGHT
A 300-hp outboard motor weighs much less
than a 300-hp diesel engine and the attached
marine transmission. This fact alone gives
the nod to outboard power for the operators
of many lightweight boats. On the other
hand, outboards are generally restricted to
mounting points at the very rear of most
boats. Inboard engines can be positioned
nearer the center of the vessel, which give
boats designers more options when posi-
tioning vessel components for efficient trim.


LONGEVITYAND RELIABILITY
Up until the last decade or two, one of the
major reasons that skippers chose inboard
power was that outboards were simply not
as reliable as inboards, and they didn't last as
long. Many outboards were cold-natured (hard
to start), were prone to a variety of malfunc-
tions, and were often hard-pressed to survive
much past 1000 operating hours in salt water.
Fortunately, the designers of outboard motors
have made great strides in the level of corro-
sion resistance and overall reliability of their
products. Longevity has made great strides
forward, particularly in the latest four-stroke
models. A sturdy diesel engine, as long as it
isn't cramming too much turbo boost pressure
into the cylinders, will probably always outlast
even the most smartly engineered outboards,
but the gap has narrowed considerably.

FUEL ECONOMY
A 350-hp diesel engine might burn 13
gallons of fuel per hour at cruising speed. A
350-hp four-stroke outboard might burn 26
gallons of fuel per hour at cruising speed. If
that were the end of the discussion, the twice-


^-- _

as-high fuel consumption of the outboard
would likely sway many boaters towards the -
diesel inboard. However, as mentioned above,
all horsepower is not the same. The 350-hp -
diesel will have a hard time pushing a 26-foot -
center console at 40 knots, and the 350-hp -'
outboard will have a hard time pushing a
40-foot sportfish boat at 25 knots.

THE BOTTOM LINE
There are 20-foot boats on Charlotte Harbor "
that are powered by inboards, and there -
are 40-foot boats pushed by outboards. In ^
general, outboard motors are likely to prevail
among the owners of smaller boats while -
inboards, especially diesel inboards, are likely
to prevail among the owners of larger vessels.

A boater's glossary


Whether you're new to the water or an old salt, you have to
agree that boaters and anglers use some terminology that
takes a while to pick up. Although the following list is far
from complete, it should be enough to get you started.

ABEAM: At a right angle to the keel or centerline of the
boat.
ABOARD: On a boat.
AFT: Toward the stern.
AGROUND: When a boat's hull is in contact with the
bottom. If this happens under power, it's called running
aground. If the boat can't be freed, it's called hard
aground. If the tide goes out while you're aground on a
flat, you may end up high and dry.
AID TO NAVIGATION: Any device intended to assist
navigators in determining their position or safe course,
or to warn them of dangers or obstructions to navigation
(channel markers, lighthouses, buoys, etc.).
ANCHOR: A device used to secure a vessel to the bottom.
There are many designs. In some cases, even a concrete
block can be used as an anchor.
ANCHOR PIN: A long, thin rod used to stake out a boat.
Can be manual (i.e., Stick It) or power-operated (i.e.,
Power-Pole).
BACKCOUNTRY: Inshore areas characterized by narrow,
shallow waterways and heavy mangrove growth. There is
open water in the backcountry, but getting to it is often
difficult. Sometimes used to refer to any inshore waters.
BARRIER ISLAND: A large sandbar between inshore
and offshore waters. Barrier islands naturally shift over
time, a process that humans try to control because
beachfront property is expensive. Good luck!
BILGE: The compartment at the bottom of the hull where
water collects and must be pumped out of the vessel.
BIMINI TOP: An open-front canvas top for the cockpit of

So, I get this email from Waterline
Weekly editor Lee Anderson (thank God
They got rid of that other hack, Josh
Somebody-or-other), informing me that
the annual boating guide is coming up
soon and that he would like me to write a
column about boating etiquette. Now, the
first thing that crossed my mind was, why
me? Emily Post, I ain't. Why would this guy
want me, a fishing guide, to write about
proper etiquette on the water? I'm pretty
- sure he realizes that my job is to write
columns that are geared towards helping
people become better anglers. At least you
g would think he knows that, right? Then I
thought to myself, this guy probably thinks
(because I'm a guide) I'm one of those jerks
-, who think I own the ocean kind of rude
if you ask me.
'OK, Capt. Mike; I think to myself,'let's
give this guy the benefit of the doubt
(because he's new and all). Maybe he just
thinks that because I'm on the water so
much that I might have seen "other" people
do some really stupid stuff out there.
Maybe he thinks that because of my many
years of being a boater, angler and guide
that I never make mistakes out on the
water and that just maybe I could teach
a few people how to conduct themselves


better while there running around in the
waters of Charlotte Harbor.'Ya know, any
guy that has that kind of faith in allowing
me to write about etiquette must be an OK
guy or stone-cold crazy.
So, what is etiquette? Etiquette is
defined bythe Encarta dictionary as the
rules and conventions governing correct
or polite behavior in society in general or
in a specific social or professional group or
situation. Sounds about right, but I really
like the boating and fishing world's defini-
tion much better, as it's a little more to the
point: Don't be a thoughtless jerk-weed
when you're out on the water. Now that's
what I'm talking about.
I can't tell you how many times I've
been out in the middle of the Harbor
drift-fishing for sharks or working a school
of tarpon with the trolling motor down -
just minding my own business when all
of a sudden here comes a 35-foot pleasure
boat doing 30 knots, headed right at me.
There will be literally a half-mile of water
on either side of me for the boat to go
around, but for some stupid reason they
choose to miss me by only 50 yards -
sometimes even less. Not only is this rude,
it also puts me and the people on my boat
in danger due to the towering wakes those


boats produce. If you're that person in the
35-footer, remember that you are respon-
sible for the wake your boat produces and
any damages it may cause. You capsize a
boat with your wake, and what used to be
yours becomes theirs. Seriously, people, a
little common sense goes a long way out
on the water.
How many of you have had this one
happen? You're working a school of redfish,
trout, mackerel or tarpon, and you're
having just a great time catching fish,
when all of a sudden here comes another
boat running right at you full blast. The
boat runs right over your school offish -
or worse yet, parks on top of them and
starts fishing. Most people are friendly
by nature, but that sort ofjackassery will
light a raging fire inside even the calmest
individual. If you see a boat working a
school offish and you'd like to get in on the
action, shut down far enough away so you
don't spook their fish, then drift or trolling
motor over and ask if they mind you taking
a few stabs at those fish. You'll be amazed
at how many people will let you in on their
action just because you did it the right
way. If you're just driving by a boat that's
actively fishing, be sure to put as much
distance as possible between you and them


so you don't ruin their great day. It's the
polite thing to do, and it's what you would
want them to do for you.
Following proper etiquette is a must
for all of us outdoor types. Each of us -
sailboaters, kayakers, wade fishermen,
guides and weekend warriors has
the same rights when out on the water.
When you're in a powerboat, try to
remember the guy who's in a kayak or
on foot doesn't have the same mobility
and speed you have. Give him a little
extra space. How much space? Well,
put yourself in his shoes and see how
much space you'd want a passing boat
to give you. Please, show each other the
respect you all deserve. If you happen to
run across someone with no etiquette,
don't let them ruin your day. Just smile,
wish them a happy life, and give them a
one-finger salute as they pass by.

Airboating offers a unique perspective
________________ .~ -.~ ut on the water, and land.
- r- -,


By Lee Anderson
WaterLine Editor

You may have seen them around when you're
cruising the flats or up the rivers. If you haven't
seen them, the odds are that you've heard
them. Airboats and don't call them fanboats
- are in a class all by themselves when it
comes to boating.
They are invaluable when it comes to
cruising in shallow water. They can operate in
only a few inches of water, making them ideal
for places like the Everglades. But they are also
superb for cruising in much colder weather.
Believe it or not, there are more airboats in
operation in snowy climates than down here
in Florida. They are ideal for gliding across ice,
snow and water. The only difference between
warm- and cold-climate airboats is the material
they are constructed with you need a
stronger hull and a lot more protection from
the elements when airboating in snow and ice.
You can't mistake an airboat for any other
vessel. Just like other boats, you need a
propeller to move. But unlike traditional boats,
airboats use airplane propellers. The flat bow of
the airboat and its protective metal prop cage
set it apart in appearance from all other boats.
That cage prevents objects from coming into
contact with the powerful rotating propeller.
Like an airplane, the propeller on an airboat
produces a rearward stream of air that propels
the boat forward. Steering can be tricky at first,
but like anything, you get used to it. Airboats
have no brakes, and really aren't designed to go
backwards. So steering one of these boats prop-
erly is a big deal. Most boats have two vertical
rudders, which steer the boat via the forced air
passing across them.


Another common characteristic of airboats
in Florida are the elevated seats. They are posi-
tioned high for a reason visibility. Just like
the towers on flats boats, the elevated seating
on an airboat allows the driver and passengers
better visibility over swamp vegetation, and a
better perspective on fish that may be lingering
nearby and gators, hogs and other wildlife.
Of course, cold- and warm-weather airboats
differ. Airboats operating in cold weather
generally have an enclosed cabin, which is
usually heated. But airboats in Florida are not
all the same. Airboat tour guides use vessels
that are larger than most recreational airboats.
They tend to have multiple seats, sometimes
accommodating up to 18 passengers. The
typical recreational airboat seats four comfort-
ably. Then there are the racing airboats. Now,
these are a totally different breed of airboats.
Speed is the name of the game here, and the
lighter your boat, the faster it goes.
Just like car racing, airboat racing is a big
deal in Florida. On any given weekend, families,
friends and fans flock to various airboat tracks
around the Sunshine State. These tracks are
specifically designed for racing airboats. There
are two lanes consisting of shallow water
where two boats compete against each other.
Some venues even have sound systems and
electronic timing displays at the end of the
track. And like NASCAR, airboat racing has
sponsors. It may be a foreign concept to the
average boater, but these events mean the
world to your diehard airboat fans.
Some airboats use aircraft engines, but most
of them use automotive engines after all,
they are cheaper. If you speak to any airboat
aficionado in Florida who knows what they are
talking about, they are likely to mention things


like a 500 cubic-inch Cadillac engine, gear
reduction units, wood props, composite props,
steel hulls, fiberglass hulls and other things
that make little sense to traditional boaters.
The characteristic flat bottom of the airboat
hull makes it ideal for navigating over shallow
marshes, swamps, ice and snow. It is also ideal
for flood and ice rescue operations, and airboats
are used by many governmental operations
throughout the world. The United Nations even
contracted with an airboat company in Homestead
for a couple boats to bring to southern Sudan in
Africa. The region there has more swampland
than the Everglades, and the civil wars there
have displaced many victims, who are living in
the swampland commonly known as"The Sud."
Airboats can easily navigate such the terrain to
deliver much-needed supplies. The Army Corps of
Engineers in Florida also utilizes airboats, as does
Charlotte County and the city of North Port.
The sound produced by an airboat's propeller
and engine can be loud. Modern airboat
designs and modern technology engine
mufflers and multi-blade carbon-fiber propel-
lers, for example have significantly reduced
the sound produced. But there are boats out
there with wooden propellers, and they are
loud. It's a personal preference.
Personal preference is what it's all about
when talking about boating any kind
of boating. The term "different strokes for
different folks" applies here. Airboaters share
a common bond, just like motorcyclists and
recreational vehicle owners. And the boats
aren't cheap. You can easily spend six figures on
a boat. Just check out any of the top manufac-
turer's websites and you can get a better under-
standing of the airboat industry. As another old
saying goes,"don't knock it until you try it."

Charlotte Harbor is a boaters'paradise,
but that isn't something that just magi-
cally happened. While we are blessed with
wonderful boating opportunities, providing
access to them and ensuring boater-used
facilities stay in good condition takes a lot of
effort and a lot of money.
What constitutes good boating infrastruc-
ture? I'm sure everyone has their own ideas,
but some of the common priorities probably
include shore access to the water, access to
deep water, access to fuel, pumpout stations,
bait and ice, access to good fishing, transient
access to land (including beaches) and then
land-side facilities such as food, liquor, shop-
ping and parks.
Charlotte Harbor is our nation's 17th-largest
estuary and Florida's second-largest open
water estuary. According to Charlotte County
Government, Charlotte County's portion of the
estuary contains 830 miles of shoreline,
84 percent of which is in permanent pres-
ervation, 365 miles of canals (190 of those
saltwater) and 28 miles of beaches.
Just over 20,000 boats are currently regis-
tered in Charlotte County and that number is
expected to increase to around 28,000 by 2050.
The majority of these boats are and will be in
the 16- to 26-foot size range. Because Char-
lotte County has so many miles of saltwater
canals, it's not surprising that more than half
of all boaters access the water that way
(53 percent). That leaves 35 percent accessing
the water from boat ramps and 12 percent
from a marina wet or dry slip (including
min-county and visitor use). Currently, Charlotte
County has a surplus of saltwater-accessible
lots available (roughly 50 percent), but we
have a deficit of ramp lanes and will need
another 15 ramp lanes by 2050 to meet in- and
out-of-county ramp demand. Additionally, the
county will soon have a deficit of marina slips
and will need to add more than 1,000 wet/dry
slips by 2050.
Of course getting your boat in the water
is only half the battle. If there's no water
under your boat, you're not really boating!
This leads me to maintenance of waterways,
which is very complicated. Some waterways
are maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, some by the West Coast Inland
Navigation District, some by the counties or
cities, and some are privately maintained. For
instance, the main channel that comes into
Charlotte Harbor and goes up to the Peace
River is federal and thus maintained by the
Corps. Many of our other public waterways
are maintained by the WCIND. Generally, the
counties and cities assume responsibility for
dredging within canals, creeks and sometimes
rivers out to main channels. Funding for
maintenance of public waterways generally


comes from WCIND. WCIND is a regional taxing
authority, so all property owners in the four
member counties that make up the WCIND
pay to fund this program. Funding for canals
that are considered public (meaning there is
a public facility on the canal, such as a boat
ramp or restaurant) may be eligible for WCIND
funds for the portion of the dredge occurring
downstream of the public facility. Funding for
canals that are not considered public comes
from those property owners who would
benefit from the dredging.
Not all canals or waterways that have boats
on them are maintained by dredging. Some
don't need it, some have no history of being
previously dredged and some have environ-
mental resources in the dredge footprint that
are too valuable to impact. When boaters are
looking to buy waterfront property, they really
need to know if the waterway is maintained
and to what depth. When dredging does
occur, frequently mitigation for impacts will
be required. Mitigation may involve restoring
habitat such as seagrass or oyster beds, or
possibly establishing no-motor (pole-and-troll)
zones.
A good source for local boating information
is the Southwest Florida Marine Industries
Association. Their website (GoBoatinmg Florida.
com) offers a variety of information, including
mapped locations for fuel and pumpouts. You'll
also find links to outside information including
the online Boating and Angling Guide to
Charlotte Harbor, online Lee County Waterway
Guide (also available as a mobile app),
Anchorage Guide to Southwest Florida, and
boating regulations. Another good resource is
Boat2PuntaGorda.com. This website is main-
tained by the Punta Gorda Boaters Alliance and
contains a wealth of information important to
visiting boaters.
Readers interested in learning more about
what's going on with Charlotte County boating
infrastructure should familiarize themselves
with the Charlotte County Marine Advisory
Committee. This group, appointed by the
Board of County Commissioners, is comprised
of area boating interests and meets at
9:30 a.m. on the second Thursday of each
month in the Commission chambers (Room
149) at the Murdock Administration building.

When buying a boat, one of the biggest
hidden costs to be considered is where and how
you are going to store your boat when it's not in
use. I'm going to talk a little about storing your
boat in Southwest Florida.
Just about anyone can Google indoor boat
storage, but you still have to know what exactly
you are looking for in a boat storage facility.
Choosing to store your boat indoors rather than
outdoors comes at a higher price. However, it'll
ensure your boat's safety from the elements.
Many people who live seasonally in Florida go
this route because it gives them the peace of
mind that their investment will be protected
from Florida's harsh summers. Knowing that
the storage facility will physically take the boat
out of the water and place it onto a rack is also
comforting.
But this extra safety for your boat will cost
more than your typical outdoor storage. And
you'll find that to get a realistic price estimate,
you should call your local indoor storage facilities
and ask about prices and services offered.
Transportation, covering and storage prepara-
tion are just a few of the extra services that most
facilities offer, so call around and research on the
Internet to get a feel for the competition.
If indoor storage is too costly for you, there is
always the option of outdoor storage. If you're
looking to save some money, storing your boat
outside should be considered first.
To store your boat outside in Florida means
you'll have to do a lot more to prepare it for the
weather. A few of the dangers to boats being
stored outside include hurricanes, daily thun-
derstorms, sunlight, animals and other various
things that aren't good for boats. Safe outdoor
storage means you'll have to shrink-wrap
your boat, which can cost from a few hundred



4 trout fillets
1/4 cup tomato juice
4 or more drops liquid red pepper seasoning
4 tsp vegetable oil
4 tsp Dijon or prepared spicy brown mustard
4 tsp prepared horseradish
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


dollars to almost a thousand, depending on the
size of the boat. There are kits you can buy to
shrink-wrap your boat yourself, or you can pay
professionals to do it.
If you're trying to save a buck, go farther
inland. The farther you go inland, the cheaper
storage generally is. You can often find facilities
that will offer transportation for your vessel to
encourage business. Ask around for deals and
see what you come up with.
Whether you choose indoor or outdoor
storage, you should also consider the other
services that are offered by boat storage
facilities. These include general repairs, gloss
finishing, transportation of the vessel, docking
and launching and much more. Considering
that seasonal boaters won't be using their boats
during the summer, that's the best time to have
your boat fixed up to be ready for the winter.
You should also choose to have the basic
routine maintenance done on your boat during
the summer. Things like flushing out the engine,
gear lube, fluid checks and disconnecting the
battery are all part of the long-term boat storage
plan. Ask your storage crew about what services
they recommend.
And finally, before committing to a storage
facility, make sure you're comfortable with the
level of security they provide. You should inspect
the facility and ask about access everything
from the hours of operation to who has access
to the premises. That's something you'll have to
trust your instincts with.

maintenance at Ingman Marine's facility located
in Placida. He has been around boats and
engines for two decades and has seen just about
everything. Just ask him. You can contact him at

Preheat broiler to high. Butter the rack of the broiler pan and place the trout fillets on it. Combine
the tomato juice, red pepper seasoning, oil, mustard, horseradish and Worcestershire sauce.
Spread the mixture evenly over the trout. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat, without turning, for 5
minutes or longer, depending on the thickness of the fish. When the fish flakes easily when tested
with a fork, it is done. Serves 4.

Before the wrap can be
installed, the hull must
be carefully cleaned.

Capt. Josh Greer sits in his newly
wrapped boat. It's hard to belive
this is the same vessel, but it is.


If you spend any time on the water,
you've seen wrapped boats. Most of them
sport flashy graphics on the hulls, often
featuring brand names. The graphics are
printed on heavy-duty vinyl, and these
floating billboards are a very effective
means for charter captains and tournament
competitors to advertise their sponsors.
But what you might not realize is that not
every wrapped boat has a bunch of logos
splashed across it. In fact, there are many
wrapped boats that you would probably
just assume were painted, and many of
them feature very low-key you might
even say classy finishes.
Rapid Graphix is a full-service commer-
cial printing and graphics company based
in Punta Gorda. They are able to perform a
wide variety of printing services business
cards, forms, brochures, stickers, menus,
banners, signage and just about anything
else you might need. Their sister company,
BrandWearInc.com, offers screen printing,
embroidery and dye sublimation services
for custom apparel. Rapid Graphix is the
sort of operation that flies along just under
most peoples' radar. You can be forgiven
for not knowing they're even there after
all, this is a sign company that doesn't have
a sign on their building. But they've been
quietly building a reputation as the top
local company for any sort of graphics work
you might want done on your vessel. Boat
names, port-of-call designations, custom
registration numbers and yes, full
custom wraps.
What's the appeal of slapping a vinyl sheet
on your boat? According to Steve Bair, who
not only runs the whole company but is
also the head installer, the main reason is to
protect what you've invested in your boat.
"The 3M vinyl and clear lamination film
we use is specifically formulated to block
the sun from getting to your gelcoat," says
Steve. "Ultraviolet radiation will absolutely
destroy your gelcoat, but the vinyl keeps
it from degrading. I bought my 2006 Sea
Pro new and wrapped it right away. I took
off the wrap just this month, and the
gelcoat literally looks like it came out of the
showroom."
"Because sunlight doesn't ruin the gelcoat,
a wrapped boat retains more of its resale
value while also costing the owner less in
maintenance and upkeep," he adds. "If you
do the math, figuring out the cost of waxing,
polishing and ultimately refinishing gelcoat
versus the cost of a quality vinyl wrap, you'll
realize it's a no-brainer. And that's not even
taking resale value into account."
Cleaning is a simple process: All that's
needed is soap, water and a soft cloth. The
vinyl is very slick, so not much sticks to its
surface. The finish is highly durable and
requires no polishing. Some boaters are
concerned about possible damage adhe-
sives may cause to the hull under the wrap,
but Steve says that's not a problem with
their process.
There's no damage none at all," he
says. "Now, I have seen some wraps that
installers have actually glued on. Those are
a nightmare, because eventually it has to
come off- no wrap is truly permanent. But
we don't use any actual glue. The vinyl has
an adhesive that holds it in place but never
completely dries or bonds to your hull, so
removal is a fairly simple process and leaves
no residue or marks on the hull."
Vinyl-wrapping a boat is also far less
expensive up-front than painting about
one-third to half the cost of a quality paint
job. And while the price of custom paint
work can quickly climb to stratospheric
levels, any type of customization you want
on a wrap can be done at minimal cost.
"We're able to handle any level of color
or image customization, or it can be kept
as simple as a customer wants," says Steve.
"We can print vinyl with any color you like,


and the material also is manufactured in
about 35 different colors and finishes -
matte, gloss and even metallic options."
A wrap that is properly installed and
correctly sealed will last about five years.
The material is impervious to sun damage,
but can be physically damaged if you try
hard enough.
"The 3M vinyl we use is durable, high-
tech stuff, but let's be realistic it's still
plastic," says Steve. "If it's banged against
rocks, pilings or other boats, it's likely to
sustain some type of damage. The good
news is that in most cases, spot repairs can
be done at a moderate cost."
If you store your boat in the water, there's
one more caveat: The wrapped part of the
hull needs to be out of the water. In that
case, Steve says they'll wrap to the bottom
paint and then seal the edge. Of course,
normal use in the water is no problem it
is a boat, after all.
As with many other things, you can find
wraps available at a variety of price points.
And as with many other things, a good one
isn't cheap and a cheap one isn't good.
"Some companies will quote low prices
and then hit you with 'extra' charges for
things that should be standard, or give a
price that is just for printing then want
another thousand bucks to install it," says
Steve. "We don't play pricing games, and we
don't skimp on materials. There are cheaper
vinyls and inks out there that might save
money in the short term but won't have the
durability and longevity that our genuine
3M products do. When we do a job, we
insist that it be done right."
"When you're shopping around for a
company to do your wrap, be sure to ask
for referrals," he adds. "Not every graphics
company that offers wraps has the training
and expertise that we do. I've been certified
by 3M to do boat and vehicle wrap instal-
lations. That's an expensive process, so a
many installers don't bother. Also, it's really
in your best interest to verify that they are
using the proper inks and materials."
So what does a Rapid Graphix wrap cost?
Well, that depends.
"There are a lot of variables that affect
our pricing," says Steve. "The size of the
boat not just the length, but also the
depth of the hull makes a huge differ-
ence in the amount of materials required,
and the materials are expensive. But I'll give
you an example: We just did a custom-de-
signed wrap for 22-foot Pathfinder bay
boat, and the price on that one came in at
$1,995. That includes printing, installation,
everything. But every boat is different. The
best way to find out what a wrap will actu-
ally cost for your specific boat is to contact
us for a free estimate."
Naturally, you can't call on Thursday and
have your boat wrapped and ready to go
Saturday morning.
"If the wrap is being designed with graph-
ics, the normal process takes something
like two weeks," says Steve. "If you want to
use off-the-shelf materials, it's closer to one
week. Of course, we're a small family-run
business, and sometimes we have big
projects to do that extend those timeframes
out a bit, but that's about the average."
If you've got something else to wrap,
Rapid Graphix can take care of that as well.
"What else can we wrap? Well, boats of all
sizes, for starters," says Steve. 'And big is no
problem we're in the middle of a wrap-
ping a 42-foot Hatteras yacht. Of course, we
do small boats too. Kayaks, oddly enough,
are tough because of the plastic they're
made from. We also do cars, trucks, trailers,
RVs, buses, vans basically any sort of
vehicle, any way you want."

7m 7 AAs a professional charter guide, I spend a lot of time
''mlB^ mm m on the water. Much of that time is spent in the shallows
of Charlotte Harbor and Pine Island Sound, so I see a
a-whole bunch of people boating on the flats. And I'm just
about hoarse from shouting, "You're doing it wrong!"
Hey, I get it I know it's not really your fault when you
run aground in skinny water. Nobody told you any better.
Plus, you've seen a hundred boats zip right through that
same area with no problem. I'm not here to place blame.
--- I'm here to educate, and class starts right now.
First, a question: How much water do you need under
your hull? If you don't know, that's a problem. I know I
need 12 or 14 inches of water to float my boat, I can run
in 10 inches if I have to, and I need 30 inches of water
to jump up on plane. But that's my boat, not yours -
every boat is different. If you don't know your boat well
enough to tell me that same information, you need to
get better acquainted.
To learn how much your boat drafts, you can check your
spec sheet, or you can drive toward the bar slowly until
you can't go any more and then measure the depth. Most
boats can run an inch or two shallower than they can
float, but to be on the safe side, don't run where you can't
float. If you think a hole is deep enough and to get you up
on plane, try it but if you hit bottom, stop. Don't dig
a trench. When your prop starts cavitating, it's not gonna
stop until you do something different.
Once you know your boat, you need to get to know
the terrain. There are flats where I have to follow a
particular route to avoid getting too shallow. If you
watch me from 100 yards away and then try to run that
flat, you'll probably get stuck. A few extra inches of
depth is a big deal out there. You've got to become an
expert at reading the water and bottom contours. One
great way to get familiar with the bottom is to go out
on a day when the tide is extra low. Make a mental map
if you can, or mark the high and low spots on a chart.
Bottom contours can be tricky. On the east side and in
most of Pine Island Sound, sandy patches usually indi-
cate deeper water. But in certain areas of the Sound and
Turtle Bay, sandy spots are actually hills. Run toward
one of those, and you'll have a problem.
Reading water is a skill that you have to learn. No one
just"knows"this stuff. For example, when there's a chop
on the water and you see a smooth, calm spot, avoid it.
That's probably a shoal area. Deeper water usually has a
darker, richer color. Shallow water usually becomes very
clear very quickly. But looking for the bottom is not the
best way to avoid grounding. The Harbor's water is often
dark or murky anyway, and sometimes you just can't see

home, there's going to be dry ground between you and -
the dock. And that's hardly the worst problem. Getting
too comfortable running in ankle-deep water can be
very dangerous -- deadly dangerous. More than one
boater has run aground at high speed on this Harbor,
and those impacts have sent more than one person to
the hospital in a helicopter. It's likely just a matter of
time before someone is fatally injured.
For some reason, it seems that burning shorelines
has also become more popular recently. By that I mean :
people running on plane within a few yards or feet of
shore to look for fish. You see this a lot just before a
redfish tournament. Some of it is guys trying to find
fish, and some of it is guys trying to chase fish away -
from a shoreline to punk out a fellow tournament
competitor (yes, there really are guys low enough to
do that). Burning shorelines is a really bad idea not -
only is it dangerous because you have reduced sight-
lines running around points, it also disrupts the fishes'
natural behavior and ruins fishing for everyone. It's just
a jackass move.
The most important tool you can have on the water
is basic common sense, and that's especially true when
you're boating in water that's knee-deep to a toddler. If
you're not sure, then you're not safe. Try to learn from
other people's mistakes when you can, and tread with
extreme caution the rest of the time. And remember,
if you see me out there waving my arms and yelling at
you, you're probably doing it wrong.

GLOSSARY
FROM PAGE 17
PONTOON BOAT: A vessel that utilizes enclosed tubes to
provide flotation, which allows for a flat, open deck.
PORT: Nauti-speak for the left side.
POTHOLE: A sandy area on a grassflat. Usually slightly
deeper than the surrounding area. Also called a sandhole.
PROP SCAR: A strip of bare sand on a grassflat caused by
a boat's propeller digging into the bottom. Some grassflats
in high-traffic areas have more prop scars than grass.
PUSH POLE: A fiberglass or carbon-fiber pole used to
propel a boat forward by pushing against the bottom.
Usually used from a special platform.
PWC: Personal watercraft (i.e., WaveRunner, Jet Ski, etc.).
RED TIDE: A bloom (rapid growth) of an alga (Karenia
brevis) that naturally occurs in Florida's salt waters. In
heavy concentrations, the algae produce toxins that can
kill fish and other marine animals. Blooms may make the
water look dark or milky.
RODE: A line used to attach an anchor.
ROLLER: Generic term for large wave.
RUB RAIL: A strip of rubber or plastic on the outside of a
boat's hull, usually atthe top of the gunwale, to prevent
damage when contacting a solid object or another boat.
RUDDER: A steering device that uses water resistance to
change a boat's direction.
RUNNING LIGHTS: Lights required to be used on all
boats longer than 5 meters while operating at night. The
basic running lights are white to the stern, red to port
and green to starboard.
SANDBAR: Often shortened to bar. On the flats, the
shallower areas between troughs. On the Gulf beaches,
the shallower areas created by wave action (usually the
shallowest is closest to shore, with one or two more
farther out). In most cases, bars run parallel to shore.
SCUPPER: A drain hole to remove water from the deck.
SEAGRASS: Any of several rooted plants found in
shallow water (0 to about 10 feet in this area).
Sometimes seen uprooted and floating.
SEAS: In weather forecasts, the expected wave height
(e.g., seas of 4 to 6 feet).
SEAWALL: A concrete or stone wall used to prevent
erosion of waterfront property. Usually colonized by
barnacles, mussels and other sessile organisms.
SEAWEED: Any nonvascular marine plant (macroalgae).
SHEET: A line used to control the setting of a sail.
SHOAL: An area with water significantly shallower than
the surrounding area. Also, a school offish.
SKEG: A downward or sternward projection in front of the
rudder. Also, the lowermost part of an outboard motor


which protects the propeller from danger.
SKIFF: A generic term for any small boat.
SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY: A warning issued when
winds have reached, or are expected to reach within
12 hours, a speed approaching gale force.
SONAR: A method of using sound pulses to detect and
sometimes view images of underwater objects and/or
the sea floor.
SPILLWAY: A section of a dam that is open to allow
water through, usually during times of high water.
STARBOARD: Nauti-speak for the right side.
STERN: The back end of a boat.
SWELL: A large wave with a long wavelength, seen only
in open water.
T-TOP: A rigid roof for the cockpit of a boat. The sides
are left open.
TELL-TALE: On an outboard motor, the small hole that
spits water out above the waterline. This indicates the
water pump is functioning.
THRU-HULL: Any hole drilled through the hull of a boat,
usually to fit plumbing or electronics.
TIDES: The rising and falling levels of the sea. When the
water level is dropping, the tide is outgoing; when it's
rising, it's incoming. A neap tide is the weakest and occurs
at the first and third quarters of the moon. A spring tide is
the strongest and occurs at the new and full moons. A hill
tide is the local term for a summertime full-moon tide.
TOWER: A metal superstructure on a vessel used to
increase viewing height above the water. Found on both
large offshore boats and smaller flats-fishing vessels.
TRANSDUCER: In a fishfinder, the device that creates
and receives sound waves to produce the image.
TRIM: The relationship of vessel's hull to the waterline.
TUNNEL HULL: A vessel design that uses air pressure to
reduce draft while on plane. In many cases, tunnel-hull
vessels can operate in shallower water than flat-bottom
or vee-hull vessels.
UNDERWAY: When a vessel is not anchored, moored,
made fast to the shore or aground.
VEE HULL: A vessel design that is meant to cut through
water. Usually provides a comfortable ride, but has a
deeper draft than other hull designs.
VESSEL SAFETY CHECK: A survey conducted by the
Coast Guard Auxiliary to determine if a vessel has the
legally required safety equipment.
WEEDLINE: A floating line of any marine plant or
macroalgae. Also, a stand of plants rooted in shallow

Preparedness
is a key factor
in successful
cruising trips.


- "- r -r




F.. =i._ __-- -. -_









Sometimes it's the destination. Sometimes
it's the journey. Regardless, cruising is all of it
wrapped up into one package.
To some, cruising means traveling across oceans
around the globe. To others, it means touring
Charlotte Harbor during the winter. But there is no
doubt about it, cruising is a state of mind.
Cruising invoves a mix of many things. When
it comes down to it, all boats are like little
islands. Everything that a boat and its crew
need to survive and operate must be on board.
Water, fuel, electricity, food, clothes and many
other items need to be consistently maintained.
The knowledge needed to get from one point
to another, understanding weather patterns,
understanding navigational charts and much
more need to be understood. And if a crisis
arises, cruisers must be prepared to deal with it
on their own.
Getting food, keeping tanks filled, making
electricity are just a few key aspects that are
involved in cruising. And then there's the financial
aspect of it all. Being on a fixed income can be a
real challenge if you want to stay on the water as
long as possible. Health maintenance is extremely
important, and this requires a higher degree of
self-sufficiency than required when on land.
Boredom is another factor you need to deal


with. Some people are content with a book or
guitar. Some are not. There is a lot of time out
there on the water. When you are out there on
the water, you should bring your hobbies with
you. Fishing is a terrific way to spend the day
- plus, you might just catch dinner, saving you
some cash.
And no matter how much you plan, things do
go wrong. No matter how much preparation is
done or how much knowledge you have, it isn't
wise to get cocky out there. The moment we
think we've got it all under control, a small thing
can turn into a major emergency in the blink of
an eye.
We've all heard stories about boats becoming
grounded, running out of fuel or drifting off with
the tide after a rope becomes untied. Mistakes
happen on land, and they certainly happen on
the water. It's just that the ones on the water can
oftentimes be a little more severe than ones on
land. Preparation and planning are invaluable
when it comes to a cruising trip no matter if
it's a monthlong trip or just a single day. Sure,
dicey situations make for some good stories, but
jeopardizing friends or family has no place on the
water. There are certain things you can prevent,
and there are certain things you can't.
The ocean and the weather can be dangerous,


perhaps fatal. We can never be absolutely certain
that a trip will be trouble-free, but we can stack
the deck in our favor by knowing the best times
for travel in a particular part of the world. For
instance, make sure that crucial boat systems
are in good working order, and watch schedules
and other responsibilities that are designed to
avoid fatigue. Discipline is needed. The discipline
to consider worst-case scenarios when making
decisions is important.
How you prepare, how you plan your itinerary
and how you meet challenges once you are on
the water are keys to making a successful cruise.
And it doesn't matter where or for how long
you go. A weeklong trip to Key West sounds
like a good time, depending on your planning.
Likewise, a daylong trip to Cabbage Key can be
a fun time, depending on your planning. There
have been plenty of boats that have run aground
in Pine Island Sound due to lack of knowledge of
the area. So, instead of scarfing down a burger
while sipping on a beer listening to Jimmy Buffet
at your favorite waterside restaurant, you could
be stuck on a sandbar waiting for a towboat.
Peace of mind is priceless when it comes to
cruising. Whether it's the journey or the destina-
tion you crave, once you have everything planned
out, you can sit back and enjoy.

Everyone knows that, most of the time, a boat
is a necessary tool for getting to where the
fish are. But did you know that your boat can
also serve as a fish attractor, bringing the fish
to where you are and keeping them there?
A boat that's at anchor or drifting with the
current becomes a form of shelter. Of course,
it may take a little bit of time for fish to find
it, so don't expect the hull to be swarming
with fish the moment you drop anchor. Small
fish in open water often gravitate toward any
sort of cover. Natural floating structure such
as weedlines and driftwood usually holds
baitfish, which provide a food source for larger
fish. Because larger fish know there are usually
little fish around floating debris, they will
be drawn to such objects whether there are
baitfish there or not. Certain species are more
likely to show this behavior. A couple of the
best-known are cobia and barracuda, both


of which can commonly be sighted cruising
slowly around the hull or hovering motionlessly
beneath. When you're reef fishing, they can
be a pain because they'll dart out and grab
grunts, snapper and other smaller fish you're
trying to bring aboard. Inshore, you can get
ladyfish and Spanish mackerel to drift with you
if you chum just a little bit. One method that
can amass truly large schools of predators near
your boat is to release several dozen or even a
couple hundred whitebait while you're in open,
fairly deep water. The baitfish won't stray far
from the relative safety of your hull. Then toss
over a handful of finely ground chum every few
minutes. It usually takes an hour or so to get a
bunch offish drawn to the boat, but if you have
the patience for this technique it can provide
virtually non-stop action once the party gets
fired up. It's amazing how close they'll get and
how long they'll hang around.

AGIG11RRunning aground
Running aground


There are only two kinds of boaters:
Those who have run aground, and those
who will run aground. Pretty much
everyone who has been boating in South-
west Florida for more than a year or two
has run aground at some point maybe
not bad enough to get stuck, but for sure
enough to know they kissed the bottom.
The good news about this is that the
Harbor's bottom is mostly sand or mud.
Only a few spots are hard enough to
wreck your prop or scar your hull. Still,
it's not good that for some reason, a
lot of people who are good, careful
drivers on the road become lunatics on
the water. Thing is, there are a lot more
unknowns out on the water, and a lot of
things hidden just below the surface.
Nobody wants to run aground.
Fortunately, there are some solid steps
you can take to reduce your chances of
getting stuck. The best thing you can do
is get as much on-the-water experience
as you can, but here are a few tips that
will help keep you out of trouble while
you do that.
Winter tides are low, especially right
after a cold front. Even though it's chilly
out, that's the time to get educated


- bundle up and hit the water. Winds
out of the northeast push water out of
the Harbor, exposing a good bit of the
seabed. That's a great opportunity for
you to identify sandbars, humps, oyster
bars and all those other potential obsta-
cles that are usually underwater. You can
also take note of deeper cuts, sandholes
and any other areas that will hold a bit
more water very useful when the
water is shallow and you're trying to find
a slightly deeper path. Go slowly with a
chart, GPS and bottom machine. Mark
locations both mentally and mechani-
cally.
You may think running aground isn't
a problem if you don't take your boat
out on the flats. Not true. If you are
just cruising around, being a half-mile
from shore doesn't mean you can't run
aground. Our sandbars can be up to a
mile away from the nearest shore. Take
a look at the Cape Haze Bar on a chart.
That one gets a lot of boaters who aren't
expecting it.
The Intracoastal Waterway is pretty
well-defined with channel markers.
Once you get outside of the channel, be
careful and go slow until you're confident


of where the safe areas are. Pine Island
Sound is an especially tricky area, with
shallow rocky areas from
channel-dredging. These spoil piles can
ruin your day, and they come up very
quickly in some places, the depth
goes from 10 feet to less than a foot
right now. There are also some oyster
bars out there that can easily rip your
lower unit right off.
When you are running anywhere in the
Harbor, a good rule of thumb is to start
slowing down when you see 4 feet or less
on the bottom machine. That way, if you
do start to skip the bottom, you can turn
around or trim the motor up, which you
should do as soon as you kiss bottom. We
have manatees to mow our grass, so you
don't have to, and we definitely don't
need any more prop scars out there.
Another reason for slowing down: If you
get stuck, most of the time you won't
be stuck so hard that you can't push the
boat off. If you run into a sandbar at
full throttle, you might end up high and
dry. If the tide's going out, you might be
there for a long time.
Truly the best option for learning the
Harbor's waters is to hire a captain to


take you out on your boat (not his boat
- YOUR boat). Not every captain offers
this service, and we are lucky to have
several real good ones at Fishin'Frank's.
Time is money for these guys, and it's
going to cost you to have one on your
boat, but a crash course like this can ulti-
mately save you huge amounts of time,
fuel and aggravation.
Be safe while you're learning. Use your
head. Take the time to learn safely with
maps and GPS and bottom machines.
Try to commit as much as you can to
memory. Your chart might blow out of
the boat, and the cable on your depth-
finder might fray. But if you can keep a
decent map in your head, it'll always be
there when you need it. And remember,
Sea Tow is a boater's best friend. Boats
break down, run out of gas and get stuck
in the mud. I happens to everyone; all
you can do is try to be ready for it.

Outfitting bass boats


Every bass angler's dream is to have their
bass boat outfitted with everything to make
their bass fishing easier. Problem is, it all costs
money you could easily drop 10 or 15 grand
into toys for the boat. If you can afford it,
that's great, but I know I can't. With so much
technology out on the market today, you have
to be careful to separate what you need from
what you want. That can be tricky, because we
know that we can talk ourselves into almost
anything.
The absolute most important thing to every
bass fisherman is a trolling motor. If you don't
have anything else on your boat, this has to
be your number-one tool as a bass angler.
The need to move around the edges of grass
lines or trudge through vegetation to get to
a certain spot is essential. A quality trolling
motor is an absolute necessity on a serious
bass angler's boat. In order to make sure you
buy the right pound thrust trolling motor, take
into account the size and weight of your boat,
then look at what types of areas you fish most
often. You don't want to overbuy on this item,
because more thrust means a lot more dollars
going out. However, you want to make sure
that your trolling motor is strong enough to
get you through any heavy vegetation you may
want to fish.
For me, the next item to look at is elec-
tronics. I could write a small novel on the
thought process that goes into purchasing
certain electronics, or the combination of
electronic packages that are available, but let's
break it down into two forms of electronics:
Smaller individual purchases versus larger
all-in-one units.
On the smaller side, you can look at getting
quality electronics that will serve your needs
without dropping a bunch of money to do
it. If you need to have a GPS, you can look at
buying a handheld model. With the bigger
models that are out today, you can pick up
handheld GPS units at pretty reasonable
rates. If you go this route, you can then move
to a depthfinder/fishfinder unit that fits
your needs. Depending on the detail you are
looking for, you can go with something that
is pretty plain and simple. If all you need is to
read the depth, keeping you from running your
boat on the bottom; basic depthfinders can be
had for under $100. More money buys you a
display screen. You can get units that display
in color, or even give you side-scan images of
the bottom. Less expensive versions just draw
a simple line and let you know what the depth
is. Once again, it's up to you to decide what fits
your needs and budget the best.
I find a temperature gauge is an absolute must
in a depthfinder. When I'm fishing, I like to know
what the water temperature is at all times. This
has proved to be a very useful tool, especially in
helping me determine when the fish will start
that movement for spawning in the spring, or
moving to warmer waters in the fall.


\/'al]er ,L n hi : It:

Rigging your
bass boat can get
complicated.


My choice for a GPS/depthfinder combo is
the Humminbird 898. Because of the fishing
I do, it's important for me to have a unit that
takes care of all my needs. The 898 also gives
me the option to add another head to it so
I can see the readings in another location
on the boat. Now, I will be honest, these big
side-scanning, image-reading depthfinders
with built-in GPS aren't cheap and may seem
like overkill. However, once you become profi-
cient at reading the displays, this is a device
that can truly enhance your fishing experience.
It has shown me things on the bottom of lakes
that I have fished for years and never knew
what was down there.
These combo imagers are truly remarkable,
and the fact they come contained in one unit
sure makes the wiring and maintenance a lot
easier. They take up less space on the dash
or console, the color screens make them very
easy to read, and if you have the Navionics
chip in the unit, the detail and bottom contour
are simply phenomenal. Like I said, these are
expensive units, but it gives me all I need in
one package.
Let's look at anchoring devices. The old


method of securing a boat was to drop an
anchor off the back, another off the front,
and tie them both tight so the boat held
its position. You can still do that today, but
now we have the ultimate in anchoring
devices at our ready: The hydraulic Power-
Poles or an electrical version called the
Talon. Both of these devices will secure your
boat. Powered pole anchors can get pricey,
but if you want to be able to fish an area
and not have the boat blown around by the
wind, these devices are the way to go. If you
are a tournament angler and fish during the
spawning season, they're a virtual must-
have. Having the luxury of dropping the
poles silently at a moment's notice when
you spy a big bass is the ultimate edge for
the angler.
Outside of rods and reels (which is a whole
other subject) these are the main devices
you need when fishing for bass. Don't get me
wrong you could do without all of them.
Heck, I did without them for years. But I know
from my own experience that your fishing
enjoyment can be enhanced by having some
of them.


There is one other item that is an absolute
must have on any boat: A first aid kit in a
waterproof container. It's never a bad idea to
carry some of the essentials along in case of
an emergency. I have two kits on my boat, just
to be safe. Bandages, Neosporin, gauze pads,
tape, scissors, aspirin (beware of expiration
dates), sunscreen all of the essentials, in
case someone gets hurt or doesn't feel well.
The other thing I make sure I have is a quality
pair of metal cutters. If someone gets a barbed
hook buried in them, I can cut that hook and
run it through them if we can't get it out the
way it went in.
Always take a good look at what your needs
are for the fishing you plan on doing. Make
sure you cover all the necessities that fit your
budget. If you do this, you too can make every
fishing trip that much better knowing you
have everything to fit your needs right on the
boat.

My 23-foot Dorado works great for most of
my desires. It has a shallow draft if I want to
fish the flats and backcountry. It has a sharp
47-degree forward entry to cut through the
waves in choppier waters. It's got enough
beam to offer stability and yet still be trailer-
able. At 23 feet it's perfect for three folks, OK
for four, and we can squeeze in two couples
plus the captain if need be. Power and cost
are major considerations. Cost is critical, but
remember there are reasons the more costly
boats still sell you usually get what you
pay for. If a deal seems too good to be true,
there are reasons.
Do you want to fish near shore or the blue
waters? Size does make a difference here.
Maybe you prefer the flash of a new boat, or
perhaps saving some serious bucks on a used
rig is more appealing to you. Either way, I
suggest a little extra horsepower, because
you don't push the RPMs up and waste fuel.
Larger engines, if they don't add too much
more weight, allow you to drop RPMs and
save wear while also burning less fuel.
Do you want to fish live bait? Are you
ready to pole around or troll? There are
many options. Before you decide, experi-
ment, go with friends, and talk with some
of our advertisers, especially the bait shops.
Be sure to date a boat before you marry it. I
recommend that you spend the day in less-
than-perfect weather on the boat you think
you want before you commit to purchase.
Charter a similar rig if the sales staff can't
help. The salesman probably does want to
see you happy in the long term, but he also
works for commissions and needs to sell to
get paid.
In my case, I can share this with you.
If you call and tell me you want to do a
certain type of fishing, if it can be done
safely, I say, "Yes sir," even if I know you're
asking for something that may not be in
your best interest. But if you ask what the
best bet is for now, I'll gladly discuss the
options and make sure you have a great
time. It's the same way with boats. Please
don't get mad because you ask the dealer
for something and they deliver exactly what
you requested. We can't take the chance of
talking you out of the sale. A good sales-
person hands you the contract and pen
when you are ready to sign.
What do you want and what do you
actually need? What can you afford to own
and operate! It's not cheap to store boats.
Maintenance is more than $100 an hour at
dealerships. There's always something to
repair or replace. Fuel is expensive. If you
don't use your rig almost weekly it's usually
a good bit cheaper, much less work, and also
more productive to rent or charter. And if


you add up all the costs, the charter gets to
look better the costs are very close, plus
you have no responsibilities and better odds
of catching. Most charter guides have years
(in my case, half a century) of experience to
help maximize your enjoyment, safety and
productivity. Look close and make decisions
that work for you before you ante up. Once
you decide, don't second-guess just enjoy.
Boat ownership may not be for everyone.
You don't have to own a boat to enjoy the
water. There are boat clubs, charter and
guide boats, tour boats, friends with boats
and many options. If you think these are too
expensive, then you cannot afford a boat
- sorry, but it's true! Boating with power
costs. But kayaks and paddleboards can be
your answer. If you want to enjoy our waters
without big expenses, try a paddlecraft. To
get more out of your investment, slow down
and eliminate the fuel bill. You can learn
more by slowing your attack and seeing
more wildlife and action. Plus the exercise is
good fer ya.
One critical area we tend to overlook is
safety gear. When you are getting the boat
together, remember that while cheap emer-
gency kits are legal to cover you, they are
not what you want when your family's life
is on the line! Quality is within your reach.
Make sure you get what you need to protect
your lives. The little extras can save your
life. Offshore boats need safety beacons to
report problems. Radios and phones are
great, but not while you're in the water
drowning.
The last but most important factor is you
will need to learn to read our waters. Just
because it's wet doesn't mean your rig will
float over it. We have shallow areas and
remember that the transducer that says
it's 10 feet deep is on the transom, not the
bow. You will need to slow down and learn.
Polarized sunglasses are necessary gear, not
optional equipment. Experience is gained
with practice and through making mistakes;
it does not come built into the boats.
Reading water and weather are not hard,
but they are skills that must be learned.
Your life can depend on your skill and judg-
ment, so don't take foolhardy chances.
Everyone can enjoy our wonderful waters,
and boating is the way to go. Just decide
what type is best for you, and I'll see you
out on the water.

was piling up. We ended up collecting more
than 800 pounds just of canned goods. Our
anglers brought in 172 trout, plus an assort-
ment of whiting, bluefish, mackerel and
flounder, all of which were processed by the
staff at the Placida Fish Market (and a few
volunteers from the crowd) into more than
250 pounds of fillets. After our tournament
expenses, we're also going to be able to cut
a $1,000 check to The Salvation Army, which
should help them restock the pantry shelves
or do whatever they need to get done. I know
they'll put it to the best possible use.
Our anglers were the best. We made them
wait too long to check in at the captains
meeting and too long to check out when
they were ready to start fishing, but they
hardly complained. They cheerfully brought
us the other fish they caught fish they
could have taken home for their own
families as donations. We had a great
mix of people fishing, from young kids to
seniors, and as far as I could tell they all had
a good time despite the windy conditions.
In fact, I had several anglers tell me they
were really looking forward to fishing this
event next year. As they're pulling up to
the dock, they're already planning for 12
months away. It just really makes me feel
good to know we planned a tournament
that emphasized fun and camaraderie over
competition, to the point that even though
these anglers knew they were out of the
running for first or second place, they were
ready to go out and do it again.
I suppose I might mention who won.
First place went to Team Scales and Tails
(Capt. Billy Barton, Matt Barton and Austin
Phelps). They brought back eight trout in
just one hour and one minute. Second place
was Team For a Cause (Capt. Shane Parker,
Salina Mason, Billy Whitfield and Chasten
Whitfield), with eight trout in an hour and
23 minutes.
Third and fourth places were drawn from
the teams that had entered at least one
trout in the tournament. Team Roughing
the Snapper (Capt. Ken Boudreau, Andy
Boudreau and Perry Nelson) took third, and
Team Apparently Not (Capt. Timothy Krebs,
Clay Krebs, Hand Woodmancy and Zak Wood-
mancy) landed fourth place and a charter trip
with Capt. Mike Myers. Big fish went to Team
Dingleberries (Jamey Peyton and Jeff Hunt)
for a 4.85-pound trout.
Our volunteers were also the best. Without
them, we absolutely would not have gotten
it done. Lee rounded up Jack Cavic and
Romeo Carrano, both seniors at Charlotte
High School, from the boxing gym to handle
getting cars parked where they need to be. I
collared a couple coworkers at the newspaper
(Travis Gilpin and Pam Staik) and"voluntold"
Greg Whaley and Josh Greer that they would
be our judges. Again, we leaned on them and
they didn't whine.
And I'm especially grateful to a gentleman
whose name I don't know. He was out on the
dock when I was bringing in the last load
of fish three coolers on one dolly. The
leverage was bad and my back was already
shot from heavy lifting. He insisted that
he take over pushing the cart to the fish
market. I protested a little, but thanks to
him my back was on fire for only two days
instead of the rest of the week. That also
reminds me: I f we borrowed your cooler and
you didn't get it back, it's at Fishin' Frank's
and you can pick it up there.
We are also very thankful to all of you who
came out to show your support for our tour-
nament and for The Salvation Army, which
does a fantastic job of helping out local folks
in need. All in all, we did what we set out to
do: We had some fun and we did some good.
Next week, I expect to be able to
announce some concrete details about our
next WaterLine tournament. I don't want to
say too much, because plans that aren't set
in stone have a way of shifting around, but
it looks like it will be in March and it looks
like it will be held at Burnt Store Marina. And
we'll definitely be partnering with another
charity to help local people in need.Once we
get the details hammered out, I'll be sure to
share them with all of you. In the meantime,
thanks again for your support. I look forward
to seeing you this weekend at the Charlotte
County Boat Show.

your trip out on the water isn't successful.
Sometimes you catch fish, sometimes you don't.
Sometimes you have fun, sometimes you don't.
Sometimes you make it back fine, sometimes
you don't.
Sometimes you're the bug, sometimes you're
the windshield.
Breakdowns on the water happen. Many
times they can be avoided if you just take the
time to look over your vessel and inspect the
little things. Clogged filters, lost propellers, bad
bilge or livewell pumps and bad wiring are all
things that should be caught long before they
become a problem.
But hey, I get it. You come home, you're tired,
you've got fish to clean and you just want to get
out of the heat and relax. Believe me, it's the
story of my life. But you know the saying: An
ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Let's say you haven't done your preventive
maintenance and something breaks while you're
on the water. Now what?
Well, if you don't have a tool kit and a few
obvious spare items on your boat, you're up that
creek without an outboard. I hope your Sea Tow
membership is up to date.
Before we talk about fixing things, we need
to talk about a way to fix them. What tools
should you have on your boat? Beats me... it's
your boat. But I can help. Take a look around
your boat and make a list. Hit the obvious things
first: What tools do you need to disassemble and
reassemble the things that are out in the open?
Normally a flathead or Phillips screwdriver is all
you need for things like loose rod holders. Look
at your trolling motor and see what you would
need to tighten it up, should it rattle loose (and
this is the time of year that will happen).
Once that's done, let's look at power. Low or


no electical power can be a day-ender. Today's
high-tech outboards need good, clean voltage
or they start acting goofy. Sensors can't read
properly, which can throw your engine out of
tune, make it run rough, put it in idle safe mode,
or even make it stop completely. See what you
need to tighten or repair battery cables. See
what other tools you may need to swap out your
trolling motor batteries with your main batteries
as a quick fix to get you home.
If you have fuses in your boat, make sure
you have several spares of each type, size and
amperage. Throw in a handful of connectors and
different size wire nuts. I also like to carry some
spare wire and a set of wiring pliers so I can
make quick splices if necessary.
Then look at the drive system. Some of us
carry a spare prop and hub, a spare castle nut
and a spare cotter pin. Do you have room for all
that? That will be your deciding factor. A spare
fuel filter is always a good idea to have on your
boat. If not, then a fuel line splice is a good
thing to have. That will cover you if your fuel
filter clogs or your priming bulb develops a hole.
Simply use the splice and some extra fuel line
to bypass the filter or bulb. Remember, that's a
quick fix to get you home, not something you
leave on until you feel like fixing it.
Another part of your boat to think of is your
lights. Many people rarely fish at night and the
day you decide to stay out a little later than
planned is the wrong time to find out your lights
won't work. It's a very good idea to carry a few
spare bulbs in your toolbox. Smaller boxes or
even prescription pill bottles are perfect to keep
bulbs safe and sound while rattling around in
your toolbox.
No tool kit is complete without a good knife, a
roll of electrical or duct tape and vice-grips. Once
you have your tool kit assembled, I would find a


a darn if they're rusted solid. Another item I like
to keep on hand is a small bottle of Dawn dish
detergent. It's great for removing grease from
your hands after you make the repair and go to
touch your fishing gear. Fish don't like the taste
of oil, grease or gasoline.
Now let's talk about money. It's a good idea to
chipmunk a little cash in your toolkitjust in case
it's needed. That day you need to refuel because
you ran farther than you expected will be the
day you have no cash on hand or the fuel dock's
credit card machine won't work. You'll be glad
you stuck that $50 bill in your toolbox.
Believe it or not, planning your boat's rigging
is another way to have quick and easy fixes
already in place. Now, not everyone gets the
chance to rig their own boat or even have a say
in it. If you're buying your boat new, chances are
you're going to get whatever they usually do
on that particular boat. The downside to that is
that things are hard to get to on a boat when
everything is installed before the top-cap goes
on the hull. That means you get to deal with
hard-to-reach wiring, pumps and other vital
parts. Custom-rigging your boat will allow you
to choose your hardware and how you install it.
As a bonus, you'll be intimately familiar with it
when you need to make a fix on the fly.
My boat's pump system is very simple. It's also
redundant. My livewell pump, bilge pump and
recirculation pump are all the same and they
use the same heads. But I've also left enough
wire on them so I can switch them around
with each other. If my livewell pump dies, I can
simply swap out the pump cartridge heads with
the bilge pump or my recirc pump. Same if the
bilge or recirc pump heads go south. Let's face it,
when you're fishing in a foot of water, some-
times keeping that whitebait alive is way more


have a self-draining single-thickness hull.
Another thing to keep in mind when rigging
your own boat is to always always! leave
yourself extra wire. I like to leave at least a foot
if possible, so if I need to rewire something in
an emergency I have enough wire to do so.
Running your wires tight may be neater, but
if you have to cut 3 inches off to make a new
corrosion-free connection, that wire isn't going
to reach.
The best thing to do when rigging your boat
is to think about that item and how it can fail
and how you can fix it. Do that before you even
think of cutting holes or wires. Plan ahead. As a
charter captain, my goal when rigging my boat
is to be able to fix it in 5 minutes good enough
to get me to the dock after the trip where I can
fix it permanently. I don't want to cancel a trip
because my livewell pump decided to go on
strike an hour into the charter. Maybe you don't
have paying clients to keep happy, but we'd all
rather be catching fish than spending hours
rewiring something.
Simple maintenance checks prior to your trip
can keep you from having to fix something out
on the water. Run through the systems on your
boat and make sure they're 100 percent. Even
though my pumps are triple redundant, if that
livewell pump head is sounding squeaky at the
dock in the morning, I'm going to take the time
and fix it then and there instead of tempting
fate. And above all, keep safety first.

I WEIL HAVE THE FISH e HUNTER& MCCALL


The wind was howling out of the
northeast and pushing the Harbor up
into a pretty good chop. We were looking
forward to a relaxing boat ride, but with
the weather uncooperative we almost
decided to stay home until an idea
occurred. Why not go upriver?
Navigating the lower Peace River can
be tricky. The water is dark and so is
the bottom, so mud bars can jump up
seemingly out of nowhere. Stick to the
channel and you're all right.
We hadn't planned to stay out long,
but in the river's protected waters we got
a little more comfortable than we had
thought we would. Soon it was getting to
be lunchtime, then it was past lunchtime.
We were enjoying the view, but rumbling
bellies were urging us to head for the
ramp. Then, once again, an idea: What
about the Nav-A-Gator Grill?
The Nav-A-Gator is many things: A
marina, a boat rental facility, a concert
venue. You can go on a guided river tour
or even rent cottages. All those things are
great, but we were there for the eats. We
selected an outdoor table and a server
was there in mere seconds, ready to take
our order. The outdoor seating has about
as casual an atmosphere as exists, with
a lovely white sand that just begs you to
take your sandals off, and the view of the
boat ramp is highly entertaining.
The first thing we noticed on the menu
was swamp cabbage. This Florida Cracker
treat is rarely offered in restaurants, so
we decided we'd have to try it. Gator
bites are another Cracker specialty, so we
ordered those as well. Although there
were several seafood options on the
menu, Hunter announced that the smell
of red meat on the grill had convinced
him to go with a burger. McCall opted for
fish and chips, a tried-and-true standard.
The swamp cabbage and gator bites
arrived together after a few minutes'
wait. We immediately realized this was
not the swamp cabbage we're used to.
Although it's the same plant (actually,
it's the growth bud of a palm tree), this
was pickled and crunchy, with a tangy
and slightly sour taste. It was served
with Mrs. Dash, which added a lemony,
peppery kick. McCall decided this
was better than Cracker-style swamp
cabbage, which is usually cooked tender
in broth with pork, but Hunter said it
ought to be called "hearts of palm" on
the menu so no one would confuse it
with more traditional swamp cabbage.
Alligator is served mostly as a tourist
novelty, but it's a favorite of Hunter's.
Some folks think it tastes like chicken,
but we say it tastes maybe a little like
turtle but mostly like alligator. The
texture is much like chicken, though
some pieces are tougher than others


)


(Hunter like the chewy bits they're
almost like chicken gizzards). The batter
they're fried in is made with a good bit
of black pepper, which is enough extra
flavoring for us. They're served with
tartar and honey mustard sauces, but we
thought both masked the delicate gator
flavor too much.
The main course showed up just as
we were polishing off the appetizers.
According to the menu, the half-pound
burger is made from Angus beef. We
couldn't verify that, but it sure was
good. Ground beef should always be
cooked well done to ensure no bacteria
end up in your meal. The hard part is
that many restaurants can't fully cook a
burger without turning the outer layer
into charcoal. This one was just about
right deeply browned and crusty, but
not burnt. The bun was also done right,
buttered and grilled to match the meat's
crustiness. The ripe tomatoes and a squirt
of ketchup and mayo were all it needed.
Be aware that it doesn't come with any
sides, so if you want fries (or chips -


see below) you'll need to order them
separately.
The fish and chips were pure delight.
The fillet was heavily battered, almost to
the point it was encased in a batter shell.
Not only was the shell magnificently
crunchy, it also preserved the fish's mois-
ture. The chips were sliced very thinly
and fried super crispy a couple steps
past golden, but not quite to burnt. This
brings out lots of complex flavors that
are missing in most chips and fries. The
basket was served very lightly salted, so
we did have to shake a little sodium on
there, but otherwise it was exquisite -
simple country food with a gourmet flair.
Because we arrived hungry, we may
have overeaten just a tad. We'll have to
compensate with a couple salad dinners,
but at least our late lunch at the Nav-A-
Gator was worth the extra calories.
The Nav-A-Gator is located at 9700 SW
Riverview Circle in Arcadia. Call them at
941-627-3474, hail them on VHF channel
16 for directions from the water, or visit
Nav-A-Gator.com.

What does 'No Wa


Judging by what we see out there on the
water, a lot of boaters seem to not quite
grasp what a no-wake zone is. Chapter 327
of the Florida Statutes applicable to vessel
safety states that:
Any person operating a vessel upon
the waters of this State shall operate the
vessel in a reasonable and prudent manner,
having regard for other waterborne traffic,
posted speed and wake restrictions, and all
other attendant circumstances so as not to
endanger the life, limb or property of any
person. The failure to operate a vessel in
the manner described in this, subsection
constitutes careless operation. It goes on to
state that anyone violating the provisions
of this subsection commits a non-criminal
violation, enforceable by the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
There are various types of wake control
signs posted in the interest of protecting
wildlife, swimmers, docks, moored boats
and floating boat houses. Every boater
should know the type of control dictated
by the signs. "No wake" is the most strin-
gent. No wake means that the vessel must
not exceed the slowest speed at which the
captain is still able to maintain steerage.
"Minimum wake" is another common posted
sign, and is interpreted as bow down and
boat settled in the water, with no white
water displaced at the bow.
In addition there are also wake control
signs that specifically state the speed allowed
in that area. These signs are much less subjec-
tive than the wake control signs. The statute
clearly states that it applies to "any vessel


ma~esasamm~muumuu m~.umuumu.s.mhuEm


e' mean?


--
a


upon the waters of this State," that means
you. However, there is an escape clause for
violators as the statute makes allowances for
any wake damage to shoreline or prop-
erty that, absent negligence, occurs from
reasonable and prudent operation. Damage
resulting under these conditions does not
constitute damage or endangerment.
Thus all boaters need to know that posted
speed and wake control areas apply to
them and that the state of Florida considers


disregard for these signs as careless
operation, which leaves you subject to a
citation by FWC as well as a lawsuit for any
resulting damages. So before venturing out
on the water, make certain you know what
those wake control signs mean and that
you comply with the posting. Did you know
that Florida law requires every vessel to
have someone acting as a lookout? So don't
expect FWC to buy your "I didn't see the
sign" excuse.


Boating isn't complicated, but you do have
to know the law and to comply with it. In most
cases, good common sense and a concern for
the welfare of property owners and other
boaters will serve as an excellent guide for
your vessel operation and wake control.

My mom and dad liked sailing. As a
7-year-old, I envied the kids whose parents
zoomed by in a runabout with water skiers
in tow. Fast-forward 30 years: Faye and I are
enjoying going nowhere slowly on a small lake
in a cheap 18-foot sailboat. After a stressful
day at work, it was perfect relaxation: Just the
sound of the water lapping against the boat
hull. Totally opposite from the dirt bike racing
that my body was about to reject.
The reasons to consider sailing as a hobby or
even a profession are many. It is accessible for
a wide range of ages and affordable to a wide
range of incomes. Sailboats can be configured
to resemble an exercise machine or easily be
used by those with severely limited strength
and mobility. There are three boat designs
that are sailed by disabled in local and Olympic
events (the 2.4mR is used at a sailing center
here). Sailing independence spans up to 70
years, and people can find satisfaction with the
same boat for 40 of those.
Men and women are equal in the potential
for recreational and professional prowess.
Consider Tania Aebi, who sailed single-handed
around the world starting at age 18, navi-
gating primarily via sextant. She was 21 when
her book was published. Consider the records
of the BYC Port Huron to Mackinac race, where
nine individuals have competed in 50 of these
300-mile races. Completing 25 gets you in the
Old Goats club; the guys who have done 50
must be the Old Rams.
Our culture puts a premium on self-reliance
and sporting achievement. Not all of our
children are suited for sports common to our
school system. Sailing teaches self-reliance and
understanding of weather and tides. Sailing
competition teaches them strategy and tactics.
Teens with a good record of sailing accom-
plishments stand a good chance at college
scholarships. Sailing teens must make their
own decisions there is no way for coaches
or parents to yell at them during the event.
Making a boat sail to its potential takes
study, continuous monitoring, analysis, and
tending of sails and course heading. There is a
satisfying job for everyone aboard, family of all
ages, or first-time guests. You can continually
analyze the interaction of heading, sail shape


and current for best passage time (aka velocity
made good.) Or you can just sail casually and
watch the dolphins.
Southwest Florida is an excellent and
practical place to sail. The season is long; there
is a multitude of clubs, races, and cruising
destinations nearby. You have a choice of
sailing in the Gulf of Mexico or the many
ports that can be reached in the shelter of the
Intracoastal Waterway. If you are starting with
a trailer-launched boat, there are lots of great
destinations within two hours'drive. Public
launching ramps are located near these desti-
nations. For example, trailer to Marco Island
and sail to Everglades City to visit the famous
Rod and Gun Club.
Charlotte Harbor stands tall as a home
port. The Harbor seldom has dangerous wave
heights, and safe overnight anchorages are
close to portside amenities. A day sail gets you
safe anchorage with Gulf beach access at either
Cayo Costa or Stump Pass. Or anchor off Useppa
Island to get your"cheeseburger in paradise"
and leave your autographed dollar at Cabbage
Key. Join sail club members for a multi-week
cruise of the Bahamas. Build your sailing
resume here and qualify for bare-boat charters
in exotic places.
I became addicted to sail racing success.
Faye overcame her fear of the water, learned
to snorkel and became a first-class sailor at
Womenship on Sanibel. She and I competed in
double-handed races of 200 miles (I slept while
she had the helm). Boat size increased and our
vessel became a mobile summer cottage at
the end of a distant race finish. We have many
great memories of"camping on the water"
with friends. Faye even caught a salmon while
the boat sailed at about 3 knots in Georgian
Bay. Now we are downsizing to get a boat
that can be easily towed and set up in distant
waters.
Why not start or resume your life story on
the water? Learn more by attending an open
sail club meeting or learn to sail at nonprofits
identified here in WaterLine.

By Josh Olive
WaterLine Publisher

Southwest Florida tides are mysterious
things. They come in and go out in odd
patterns, with as many as five a day or as
few as one. Low tide may occur an hour after
high tide and be recorded at the same height,
then the water may flood in and get 18 inches
higher in a few hours.
It may seem like multiple personality
disorder, but our strange tides are really just
the result of the shape of the Gulf of Mexico.
See, on the open Atlantic coast, you have one
high tide and one low tide in a 24-hour period.
These are called diurnal tides. In other places,
there are two high and two low tides. These
are semidiurnal tides. So far, so good.
But along the Gulf coast, we have what
are called mixed tides sometimes diurnal,
sometimes semidiurnal. The mechanics of it
are very complex, so let's leave it at this: The
sea bounces off the coastal contours of the
Gulf like water sloshing about in an irregularly
shaped bin. Determining what it will do can
be done by mathematical equation, but not by
simply observing the previous day's tides.
Fortunately, there's a solution and it's
on page 6 of this magazine. Tide charts do all
that pesky math for you, so at a glance you can
find out how much water will be under your
hull when you're crossing the Cape Haze bar.
(Actually, that's only mostly true; I'll explain
in just a moment.) But a tide chart is no good
unless you can read it. If you're still in the dark,
no worries.
Here's how it works: Tide heights are
expressed in feet above or below mean lower
low water, which is a technical term for sea
level. Abbreviated MLLW, these are the depths
shown on a navigational chart. On the charts
to the left, these are expressed in both text
and graph form. The graph (the ones that look
a bit like a very unhealthy heart rate readout)
is a bit easier for the uninitiated to grasp.
Wherever the line goes up, the tide is rising.
Where it goes down, the tide is falling. It's easy
to see the relative height of each day's tides.
The numbers at the top and bottom of each
squiggle show the time of the maximum high
of low in a 24-hour format and the predicted

height. Days are represented by light or dark
blue boxes.
In this format, it's easy to see when the tide
will be rising or falling quickly the steeper
the slope, the faster the tide (again, mostly
true; I really will explain in just a sec here).
Below the graphs, you'll find the same
information in a text-only format. This is how
tide charts are usually presented on giveaway
cards, because you can fit the information into
a smaller space. If you look at the numbers and
compare them to the ones on the graph, you'll
see they're the same.
Tide charts are only accurate for the listed
location. Inshore, the closer you are to the Gulf
the sooner a low or high tide will happen. For
example, the times listed for Punta Gorda are
correct only for the exact spot where the tide
station is (I believe it's the U.S. 41 bridges). If
you're at Ponce de Leon Park, a couple miles
closer to the Gulf, low and high tides will occur
a few minutes sooner than the time shown. It
takes time for water to flow.
Now, about that explaining: There are a
couple variables that can affect tide height,
sometimes hugely. Tide predictions are avail-
able years in advance. They're based on moon
phase and season, and there's no way they can
account for local weather conditions. In the
winter, we have naturally lower low tides. We
also have a prevailing north or northwest wind
that tends to push water out of the Harbor. No
tide chart takes this wind into consideration,
which is why sometimes a tide that's predicted
to be, say, 0.36 can actually be -0.24. The
harder and longer the wind blows, the more
this effect will be magnified.
In summer, strong southerly or westerly
winds can have the opposite effect, driving
water levels up. We saw that twice this past
year, with high tides nearly spilling over
seawalls all around the area. High rainfall and
the river flooding that ensues can also cause
tides to be higher than predicted.
Be absolutely clear on this tide height is
a prediction ONLY. You as a responsible boater
must factor in conditions at your location. That
weakness aside, tide charts are a fantastic tool
for anyone who uses the water, which is why
we devote the time and effort to producing
them every single week.

Other than vessels designed
for commercial or public service
operation, few boats are
designed with diving in mind. ,,-
But with proper planning and
the addition of some easily
obtained equipment, almost
any private vessel can be
adapted to support recreational
diving. I have personally worked with friends
and many clients to set up boats of many
types sportfishermen, center consoles,
walk-arounds, flats and bay boats, kayaks and
inflatables for diving.
The most critical issue in supporting divers
on your vessel is space. Dive equipment is
heavy and takes up quite a bit of space. Larger
boats with lots of open deck space and storage
capacity make diving much easier, but some
smaller vessels can be made to work. As an
example, I operated a 22-foot Boston Whaler
center console for a number of years that easily
accommodated four fully equipped spearfish-
ermen.
So how many divers can your boat handle?
The limiting factor is usually scuba cylinder
storage and weight. You should survey your
boat to determine where and how spare cylin-
ders and assembled dive gear can be stowed.
Companies like Roll Control Systems have
developed a full line of tank racks and mounts.
Such off-the-shelf solutions are great but can
be an expensive proposition. Another solution
for most boats is deck tank holders made of
PVC or foam. These holders allow cylinders
to be laid down on the deck, and along with
stacked assembled gear.
The weight and balance of the vessel also
must be considered during your survey. A typical
aluminum 80-cubic-foot cylinder weighs 40
pounds, and an average steel cylinder will
weigh more than 50 pounds. Incorrect loading
can cause difficulties in getting your vessel on
plane and affect stability when underway. After
your survey, you will be able to develop a load
plan that will tell you how many divers you can
handle. Remember, divers come with other gear
that must be stowed, which may require some
creative solutions.
The next thing that you have to think about
is how you will get your divers into and out of
the water. Larger boats with a swim platform
and a good-size ladder make this simple. On
small boats, the most effective water entry is
to backward roll over the side. Getting back
on board is another matter. Climbing a typical
swim ladder and getting over the transom
with heavy dive gear is very difficult for most
divers. Small boat divers most often remove
their gear in the water and tie it off to a float
line. Then, keeping fins and mask on, they kick
up and over the side of the boat. This is easier
than it sounds. The diver also has the option of
removing his fins and climbing a swim ladder if
there is one.
Some additional items of boat equipment
are needed when diving from your boat.
The most important item and the only one
required by law is a diver down flag (red with a
white diagonal stripe running from the upper
inner corner to the lower outside corner). In
Florida, all vessels, no matter what their size,
must fly a 20- by 24-inch diver down flag from
the highest point on the vessel whenever one


or more divers are in the water. Divers are
required to remain within 300 feet of the flag.
Vessels approaching a vessel flying the diver
down flag may not approach within 300 feet
unless moving at idle speed and keeping a
watch for surfacing divers. The operator of the
vessel is required to lower the diver down flag
once all divers are out of the water.
A very valuable piece of safety equipment
is tag/trail line, which consists of 30 to 50 feet
of floating line and a substantial float ball.
This line is deployed once the boat is anchored
on a dive site and will trail with the wind and
waves behind the vessel. This line provides
divers a larger target when swimming back to
the boat, and something that they can grab to
prevent drifting away as they wait their turn
to get back aboard. Another valuable item is a
mooring line, which is necessary when diving
on sites where anchoring is not permitted and
where mooring balls are provided (wrecks and
reefs, such as the USS Mohawk). A mooring
line can also be used as a tie-off for gear when
reboarding small boats. Mooring lines should
be built from a floating line at least five-
eighths of an inch in diameter, a substantial
carabiner and a small float to prevent the
carabiner from sinking.
There is no such thing as too much safety
equipment aboard any vessel, especially a dive
boat. An expanded first aid kit, which includes
supplies for diving-related injuries is absolutely
necessary. First aid for dive-related injuries
(DCS, arterial gas embolism, near-drowning,
cardiopulmonary emergencies) in almost cases
calls for giving the victim 100 percent oxygen
and performing CPR. If you are going to regu-
larly dive from your boat, and take others out
diving, you should consider taking a first-aid
course that includes CPR and oxygen admin-
istration and have an oxygen kit aboard the
boat. NAU I and Divers Alert Network instruc-
tors teach first-aid courses that include oxygen
administration and meet USCG standards for
dive professionals and merchant mariners.
While diving from your own boat may not be
as easy as just throwing your gear aboard, with
a little effort diving from it will be a pleasure.
As a diver, having your own boat expands your
possibilities for the fun adventures diving
provides. Always keep safety in mind, plan
ahead and file a float plan with someone
before you leave the dock. When in doubt, seek
out professional advice rather than going it
alone it will pay off in the end. Good luck,
and go diving!

Everyone has an ideal boat
and a load of toys along with it
when they're imagining their
dream. Keeping that in mind,
if money were no issue, what
would be on your must-have
list for a boat in 2014? Some of
mine I have deemed necessary
from past experience, and some


are just fun or imaginary. Here's what I came
up with:
LOUNGING ROOM: Any boat I'm on needs
to have space. You never know when you'll
be beached at Ski Alley and have a crowd of
people who want to make friends. When you're
in that type of situation, the more the merrier!
My ideal boat would seat comfortably at least
six, which is plenty to get the party started.
BEACHABILITY: During my wonderful
summer days off spent at Ski Alley or Snake
Island with hundreds of other water-lovers,
I have learned that when it comes to those
kinds of parties, being able to run your boat
aground on any sandbar without too much
hassle is ideal. Man Friend's (MF) 16-foot Scout
is perfect to pull up right next to whoever has
the best party going on at the time. When the
tide starts to run out, it's easy to push back,
so we're not dealing with the stress of time
constraints while living the Florida life.
TUNES: A boat without music is no boat I'd
own. Access to Sirius or Pandora is a bonus,
but my boat would at least need to have a set
of speakers. Music is great for the aforemen-
tioned Ski Alley parties and even better to ease
the tension when your boat malfunctions and
is drifting slowly out to sea (more on that in a
minute).
A GOOD CAPTAIN: In any situation that can
be thrown out, a good captain is the root of
all success stories. When a friend won a free
5-hour deck boat rental last year, 20 of us were
immediately in, with booze, tunes, food and
all the fixins of a great day. The one problem?
No one knew how to drive the boat, or where
any sandbars or beaches were within driving
distance. We spent the entire 5 hours putting
around without ever actually being in the
water, which we would have done had we had
someone who knew what they were doing.
This also applies to fishing trips and where to
set up for certain fish, reading tide charts and
GPS screens, etc.
A TROLLING MOTOR: The seriousness of this
accessory came into play just before Christmas.
We were fishing, the tide was out and much
shallower than usual and the water was
unswimmable because it was one-half of one
degree above freezing. MF and I tried to visit
our favorite fishing grounds using the same
route we have taken time and again and got
stuck. I'll spare you the gory details, but the
next 15 minutes involved me stripping down
to my underwear, jumping into icy water and
knee-high muck, and pushing that stupid boat
until we were clear of the sandbar we had run
aground on. I can still hear the fisherfolk on
the boat directly behind us laughing at me...
so I bought MF a trolling motor for Christmas.
I'm still not convinced this wasn't a scheme he
hatched to get a new toy for his boat.
PADDING: Smaller boats bounce in waves,
so if you don't want a sore keister, padded
seats (or a bench, or a random seat cushion
stolen from rarely-used patio furniture) are a


girl wants




in a boat


must-have.
SHADE: I'm descended from centuries of pale
Europeans and spent my first 20 years in Mich-
igan, so on a clear summer day I can go from
vampire white to Dawnberry pink in about 15
minutes. Constant sunblock application seems
to help a little, but what I want on my dream
boat is a total refuge from the beating rays, in
the form of a cabin or Bimini top.
A FULL GAS TANK: Let's just take these
next three and lump them all together as one
(three) bad experiences) I've had when I first
met MF. They all sound silly, but without any
one of these, your fishing day can turn into
a disaster. Let's not try to get from El Jobean
Marina all the way to Cape Haze Point and
back on a quarter tank of gas, or else our
girlfriends will be posting frantic, "Please help
him!" messages on Facebook until she coerces a
friend of a friend to bring us gas, right? Thank
goodness for the kindness of strangers.
A SPARE BATTERY: Same goes for this one.
Although it made for a first date I'll never
forget or let him live down, the ol'"faulty
battery" ploy and ensuing Sea Tow rescue only
harmed his ego and his bank account. An extra
battery would have come in mighty handy that
day, and we were fortunate to have escaped
the incident with minor issues. If our cell-
phones hadn't worked, we might have possibly
floated from Boca Grande beach all the way
out to whatever island Elvis and Tupac are
living out their days on. Or died. DIED!
PLUGS: Much the same as a functioning
battery, plugs are essential. Our second date
- another fishing trip, since the first one
went so well lasted just long enough to
realize that one of us (cough) forgot to secure
the transom plug and watch the boat half-sink
before we maneuvered it back on the trailer.
With all plugs in place, we might have made
it out long enough for the battery to die...
again. Hey, there's a reason I stick around MF:
Life with him is never dull.
ANTI-DOLPHIN SONAR: I hate dolphins. I
mean I really, really hate dolphins. When I first
moved here from Michigan, dolphin sightings
were the coolest! But then I began to fish,
and I realized that dolphins are the biggest
jerks in the Gulf. I'd hook a giant fish ... and a
dolphin would eat it, spook it or wound it, then
continue circling the boat, no matter where we
went, to spoil the fishing.
If I had some kind of anti-dolphin device to
drive these pesky (but cute!) mammals back
to a safe distance, the world would be a better
place.
So there you have it, my ideal watercraft. If
anyone insanely rich is out there and feeling
charitable, please feel free to build this boat
to my specifications and shoot me an email...

"Red Right Returning" is U .!
the slogan that is taught to
most boaters when they ask an
experienced boater how to get
somewhere on the water. My
get a nautical chart of the area
and remember that slogan.
What it means is red buoys and marks, when
passed, need to be on the right (starboard)
side of the boat when returning from
offshore. That's helpful but there's much
more to learn than just that.
The U.S. Aids to Navigation system uses
buoys, beacons and minor lights as marks.
These designate the location of obstructions,
dangers such as wrecks, the sides of channels
and other things of importance to mariners.
The U.S. ATON system has six types of marks:
Lateral marks, safe water marks, isolated
danger marks, range marks, regulatory marks
and special marks.
In our immediate area, many of the aids
to navigation we see are day marks. Red day
marks are triangular shaped signs mounted
on wood or steel poles driven into the
seafloor. The triangular sign has a red outside
rim over a lighter shade of red background.
If numbered, the number will be an even
number and colored red. Triangular day marks
are shown on nautical charts as a red triangle
followed by the capital letter R and the mark-
er's number. Similarly, green day marks are
square signs mounted on wood or steel. The
outside rim is green and the background color
is a lighter green and when numbered, its
number is odd and colored green. Green day
marks are shown on nautical charts as green
squares followed by the capital letter G and
its number. Day marks associated with the
Intracoastal Waterway will also show a yellow
triangle or square.
Buoys are floating ATONS and come in
various sizes and configurations. Buoys are
most frequently used to mark the sides of
navigable channels. Each is attached to a
large concrete block by a length of chain.
Caution should be used when approaching
these floating ATONS. The chain is of suffi-
cient length to allow the buoy to float and
not be submerged when the tide is at its
highest level. When the current flows, the
buoy will swing with it on the chain (called a
watch circle) and may not be directly over its
anchor or, for that matter, the side of the
channel.
The two most common buoys are cans and
nuns. Red nun buoys are conical in shape
and if numbered, the number will be even
and red. Nun buoys are shown on nautical
charts as red diamonds over a white dot.
It will then be followed by a capital letter
R over a capital letter N with the buoy's
number. Green can buoys are cylindrical in
shape and if numbered, the number will be
odd and colored green. Can buoys are shown
on nautical charts as a green diamond over
a white dot. It will then be followed by a
capital letter G over a capital letter C with the
buoy's number. If the can or nun is lighted,

the navigation chart will also show its light
characteristics.
If the buoy is of significance to the ICW, it
will also display a yellow triangle on a nun
buoy or yellow square on can buoys. Another
thing to remember, if the lateral marks are
designed and placed to show a preferred
channel, the mark will display both red
and green color in horizontal stripes. The
top-most color signifies the preferred
channel. For example, a nun buoy with a
red horizontal stripe over a green horizontal
stripe, the preferred channel is to the left.
Remember, keep the red buoy to starboard.
Another useful publication by the U.S.
Coast Guard is titled "U.S. Aids to Navigation
System'." It is a handy pocket guide which
summarizes the basics of Aids to Navigation,
including colors, shapes, bridges, numbers
and lights you will see while on the water.
I encourage every boater to learn how to
read navigation charts. There are a number of
good reference books available at your local
boating supply store or online. For instance,
"Chart No. 1, Nautical Chart Symbols, Abbre-
viations and Terms" is useful in interpreting
nautical charts.
Interested in learning more about naviga-
tion and safe boating? For more information

MERMAID ATTACK!
Fishermen in the Zimbabwean town ofGokwe have
reportedly been having a bit of trouble netting fish in
the area of the Gwehava Dam. It seems that mermaids
- yes, the half-fish, half-woman kind have been
terrorizing fishermen who try to fish in the waters
without the approval of the custodians of the area.


A Gwehava local, Mr Prisai Kamutondori, said the
fishermen were living in fear after the mermaids
revealed themselves to them."' was going home at
night when I heard screaming and before long four
men came running from the direction of the dam as
if something was chasing them. I stopped them and
asked what they were running away from and they
told me that mermaids had suddenly appeared from
the water and asked who had given them permission
to fish'he said. "They also told me that some of their
fishing nets had been dragged under water by an
unknown force and they failed to retrieve them. I think
the nets were pulled into the water by the mermaids.
I suspect the fishermen went into a water area that is
frequented by the mermaids and they were just marking
their territory. There is an area in the water that is a
no-go-area, for even us locals because we know that the
mermaids don't want us there,' he said. Chief Njelele,
a local tribal leader, confirmed the reports, saying the
waters in Gwehava Dam were sacred and urging people


who want to use them to seek permission from the
elders in the area. "That water is sacred; it cannotjust be
used by everyone,'he said. "Outsiders who want to go to
Gwehava and fish must first go to the elders of the area
and also talk to me. If you just go, the mermaids will
deal with you. But the people of Gwehava do not have
to seek permission because the water is theirs to use."
USTO BP: PAY UP
(Reuters) A panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals on Friday affirmed a federal judge's approval
of a multi-billion dollar settlement between BP Plc
and businesses and individuals who lost money and
property in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. BP had
supported the settlement agreement leading up to the
December 2012 ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Carl
Barbier approving it. But the company has since argued
the administration of the settlement is faulty because it
allows claimants without actual damages to join in. In
the 2-1 decision, the appeals court panel rejected the
arguments by BR It noted that the company had failed
to explain "how this court or the district court should
identify or even discern the existence of'claimants that
have suffered no cognizable injury." BP had originally
projected that its settlement in the case would cost
$7.8 billion. As of late October it had boosted this
estimate to $9.2 billion, and said this sum could grow
"significantly higher.'
MAINE SHRIMPERS SHUT DOWN
PORT CLYDE, Me. (NewYorkTimes) Shrimping in
the Gulf of Maine was so bad last season that Randy
Cushman, a longtime fisherman, wondered if there
was any point in going out at all. 'I can honestly say it
was the worst catch that I've ever seen in my career,"
said Mr. Cushman, 51, who has captained a boat for
more than 30 years. "'I was calling people and saying,
'Let's shut this fishery down, this is stupid." Regulators
recently did just that, closing the 2014 Gulf of Maine
shrimping season which, in a normal year, might
have run from December through the spring to give
the supply time to recover. The shrimp in question are
called Northern shrimp or, more locally, Maine shrimp.
Maine is the southernmost part of this Artic species'
range. They are usually caught in the winter, when
females come close to shore to lay their eggs in cold

DEAR DR. ROACH: The
answer to J.P needs to
address the strong family
history of breast cancer.
She should be referred
to a genetic counselor to
determine whether she
needs to be screened for
BRCA I or II. -J.T.
ANSWER: J.E wrote in
December about the safety
of vaginal estrogen, and
noted that she'd had "a
grandmother, aunt, sister
(both breasts) and now
a first cousin with breast
cancer."
It indeed sounds like
her family history would
qualify her as having an
increased risk for develop-
ing breast or ovarian cancer
associated with BRCA1
or BRCA2 mutations. The
United States Preventive
Services Task Force has
recommended genetic
counseling for women at
increased genetic risk.
There are several benefits
from testing for BRCA
status. The results allow the
physician to better estimate
risk for future breast and
ovarian cancers, which
in turn can inform the
decision as to medication
or surgery to reduce risk
of breast cancer. Secondly,
the information can be of
benefit to family members.
Thirdly, knowing the results
can reduce anxiety.
Potential harms of
genetic testing need to be
considered. The USPSTF
says: "Routine referral for
genetic counseling and
consideration of BRCA1
and BRCA2 testing clearly
has important psychologi-
cal, ethical, legal, and social
implications, although they
are not well-quantified in
the literature."
The younger one is, the
greater the personal benefit
to knowing genetic risk.
However, even for an older
person, it may be worth-
while to know their genetic
risk, especially for family
members.
TO READERS: Questions
about breast cancer and
its treatment are found in
the booklet on that subject.
To obtain a copy, write: Dr.
Roach -No. 1101, P 0. Box
536475, Orlando, FL 32853-
6475. Enclose a check or
money order (no cash) for
$4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the
recipient's printed name
and address. Please allow
four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. ROACH: How
long do shin splints last?
Is there anything besides
ice that will make them go
away faster? My left shin
started hurting a little more
than three weeks ago, and
I ran once or twice on it,
then I stopped, but it still
hurts. Is this normal? When
do you think I can run


Dr. Roach

on it? I don't think it was
increasing my distance that
did it, but I did a longer
run on a flat path, and
normally I do it with hills,
so I thought maybe that
was the problem but
three weeks seems like too
long. -H.O.
ANSWER: Pain in the
shin bone (tibia) is com-
mon in runners, but the
hard part is distinguishing
between "shin splints,"
properly called "medial
tibial stress syndrome," and
a stress fracture of the tibia.
A stress fracture usually has
a discrete area of tender-
ness, but MTSS has more
diffuse tenderness. An
X-ray maybe needed to be
sure it isn't a stress fracture,
since the treatment is very
different. A runner with
a stress fracture needs to
avoid impact activities like
running, whereas MTSS
usually gets better with just
lower running mileage.
In your case, the degree
of pain is higher than I
would expect after three
weeks. I'd recommend an
X-ray.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
After two years of seeing
several doctors and being
misdiagnosed and treated
with wrong medications,
my 27-year-old daughter
has been diagnosed with
psoriatic arthritis. Her joint
pain has been constant
during this time. What
kind of long-term damage
has been done during this
time? -A.E
ANSWER: Psoriasis is a
common inflammatory
skin condition, with well-
known plaques raised
red patches with silvery
scales or flaked skin -
most commonly seen over
the elbows, knees or on the
back. Only a minority of
people with psoriasis will
ever develop psoriatic ar-
thritis, but you have to have
psoriasis to get psoriatic
arthritis. Sometimes, the
arthritis shows up before
the skin lesions, making the
diagnosis difficult.
Unfortunately, damage to
the joints can happen early
in the course of psoriatic
arthritis, but only an X-ray
can show the extent of
damage. Your daughter
may need aggressive treat-
ment. A rheumatologist
experienced in psoriatic
arthritis is essential.

Solving sweater storage
Dear Heloise: I have a
question about the best
way to store sweaters. I -0
purchased some clear b. -- I.n


" OA-TIAE O-r, CLJAN.U S PUT
z TOO tAuCR TSRC IN '(0o1
f TURTLENECLK WINT7



itV


totes and thought of
keeping them in those
with some moth cakes.
Would this be the best way
to store them? Julie V.,
via email
If your totes are plastic,
then that's not the best
way to store your sweaters
for the long term, but if
it's just a seasonal thing,
then you probably are OK.
And moth cakes really
don't kill moths; they are
supposed to repel them. If
the clothes are clean and
in a well-sealed container,
then there is no need
for moth cakes! Before
packing away the clothes,
wash or dry-clean them,
making sure there are no
stains. You can roll them to
prevent creases.
Sweaters need to be kept
away from moisture, so
don't store the container
in an attic or a basement,
if possible. Find a closet
or some other area in
your home with the same
temperature. Heloise

Mailing photos
Dear Heloise: I often
mail photos to some of my
relatives. I have found a
trick that helps the photos
get to their destination
unbent. I place the photos
(I usually send only one
or two at a time) in a
card with a quick note.
Then I take a piece of
thin cardboard or card
stock that I have saved,
cut it to size and place it


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

in the envelope as well.
It gives the photos extra
support. Just be careful -
depending on how much
you put in each envelope,
the postage may go up. -
Leslie in San Angelo, Texas

No burning fingers
Dear Heloise: When I
heat a small dish of food
in the microwave, I used to
put the item in the center
of the microwave. When it
was done, I had to take out
a hot dish. I discovered a
better way. I put the item
to be cooked off to one
side. When it is done, I slip
a hot pad into the micro-
wave on the opposite side
and quickly place the dish
on the hot pad. -WW in
Salem, Ore.

Save from spills
Dear Heloise: I have a
small child, and spills on
the floor are a common
occurrence. To help save
our carpet, I place a large
blanket on the floor in
the room we are in most.
It easily can be picked up
when we have company or
if it needs to be washed. -

Man's reticence about sex puts MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley
Man's relatieonshipe about sex putspardy t
relationship in jeopardy ?Ta^ ^


DEAR ABBY: I have
been seeing a guy, "Karl,"
for eight months now, and
we have never had sex.
After two or three months,
I brought up the subject.
He said he was stressed
because he had just lost
his job. He also said there
is never any privacy at his
place because he has room-
mates/tenants. I offered to
go to my place, but he said
that with my son there, it's
the same issue.
Karl says he's very
attracted to me, but doesn't
want our "time" together
to be ruined by his current
money problems. I told him
I understood and I have
waited. I also explained that
it makes me feel insecure
and unwanted.
He now has a job, but we
still haven't had sex He has,
in the interim, told me he
loves me and wants to mar-
ry me. I constantly worry
that there's someone else
and wonder what's wrong
with me. I love Karl, too,
but I don't know what to do.
Please help. LOVE, BUT
NO SEX IN NEW JERSEY
DEAR LOVE, BUT: Is
there any intimacy at all in
your relationship with Karl?
Is he affectionate? Is there
any physical response when
he holds and kisses you? If
the answer is no, your boy-
friend may have a physical
or emotional problem, be
asexual or gay.
Before agreeing to marry
him, I recommend you
schedule some time alone
together by spending a few
romantic weekends at a
hotel or motel. It may give
you a better idea of what
your future would be like if
you two decide the tie the
knot.

30-year-old gay man who
works in an office with 20
women. In the five years I
have worked here, many of
my co-workers have either
gotten married or had
children.
Our office has a tradition
of throwing showers for
the lucky ladies, and I am
always asked to contribute
money toward food for the
party or an extravagant gift.


DearAbby

While I'm happy to
donate to a charity or help
a friend in need, I wonder if
a wedding or a baby shower
would be given for ME? Am
I selfish for feeling hesitant
to donate money or gifts
when it's likely the favor
will never be returned?
-MINORITY MALE IN
TEXAS
DEAR MINORITY: I don't
think you are selfish for
feeling the way you do. In
fact, it's understandable.
However, in the case of a
wedding or baby shower,
people give gifts as a way
of offering congratulations
and good wishes. And I
would hope that, even if
same-sex marriage isn't
recognized by the state of
Texas, that your co-workers
would do something to
honor you if you had a
spiritual ceremony, which
some religious denomina-
tions offer.
DEARABBY: I am
turning 60 and naturally
looking a little "worn." My
man friend keeps telling
me I need a facelift and
to lose 10 pounds, so I'm
starting to save my money.
Something tells me he
wants a "hot chick" and
thinks he'll have one once I
get these procedures done.
It's expensive. What do you
think? LOOSE-FACED
LOUISIANAN
DEAR LOUISIANAN: It's
not only expensive; as with
any other major surgery,
there is some risk involved.
If you had said you wanted
cosmetic surgery because
you thought you needed
it, I would say to go ahead.
However, if it's only because
your man friend is pushing
you, then he should save
his money and offer to foot
the bill.

faith-Christ died for our sins." Today invite Him in
