A very special algae that makes 4 most important fuels for under 1-30 a gallon.

Algenol has gotten 10 million dollars in taxpayer money to create 120

jobs by 2015- but first it had to hit 108 by full time positions by

the end of this month.

Today, commissioner Cecil Pendergrass says he suspects that won't happen.

I did a tour and an curious how many real employees they have working.

Algenol CEO Paul woods personally gave Pendergrass the walking tour

and says he's flat out wrong.

We file papers- they have the numbers.

Woods says he already beat even next year's goal- with 126 employees

working in the fort Myers office- and more off site.

Really disappointing to hear someone could use suspicion word around

us cause algenol has done nothing but great things for lee county

county- there are plenty of other counties who want algenol. Return to index of stories...

DOGS SAVED BECAUSE OF DRUGS.

IF NOT FOR A VISIT FROM DEPUTIES AT THIS RESIDENCE ON GLADIS AVENUE IN PORT CHARLOTTE, THESE DOGS - ILL WITH PARVO AND TOO WEAK TO STAND - MAY HAVE NEVER BEEN RESCUED.

SU "Investigators first entered this home last week with a search warrant for drugs… they ended up finding dozens of animal horrible condition… now animal control says they're doing everything they can to make sure they don't get them back."

"We had no idea what we were in for when we went to those front doors."

LT. BRIAN JONES WITH CHARLOTTE COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROL SAYS THIS WOMAN ON THE LEFT, 47-YEAR-OLD JENNIFER PETHTEL WILL FACE ANIMAL CRUELTY CHARGES.

SHE'S ALREADY BEEN ARRESTED ON DRUG-RELATED CHARGES, ALONG WITH THIS MAN, 42-YEAR-OLD DAMOND HUMES.

"I'm just making it clear!"

WE WENT BY THEIR HOUSE TODAY WHERE ONE PERSON CAME OUT ON THE LAWN, BUT DIDN'T SAY MUCH ABOUT WHAT WENT ON HERE.

"No one wants to answer any of your questions and I already talked to the owner and she doesn't want anyone on the property."

INVESTIGATORS TELL US THEY'RE LOOKING AT ADDITIONAL PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THIS HOUSE AS POTENTIAL SUSPECTS.

ULTIMATELY A JUDGE WILL BE THE ONE TO DECIDE WHETHER THESE ANIMALS, FOUND IN FILTH, WILL GO BACK TO THE SAME PEOPLE OFFICERS SAY BARELY FED THEM AND KEPT THEM IN CONFINED KENNELS TO BREED.

ANIMAL CONTROL TELL ME THEY WILL ISSUE AN OFFICIAL ANIMAL CRUELTY CHARGES WEDNESDAY AFTER A FULL EXAMINATION BY THE ANIMAL WELFARE LEAGUE OF PORT CHARLOTTE.

NAPLES PAINTING WITH NAZI STAMP-BNR-PKG


FROM EXPRESSIONISM TO REALISM.

WHEN IT COMES TO FINE ART - OLGA ARKHANGELSKAYA HAS SEEN IT ALL.

Olga Arkhangelskaya/Gallery on Fifth/3:00:24 "We receive a number of interesting paintings."

BUT IT'S WHAT HAS APPEARED IN HER GALLERY OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS - THAT HAS ALL OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA TALKING.

Olga Arkhangelskaya/3:07:59 "it's an honor to have a piece of art of that magnitude in our gallery."

THE GALLERY ON FIFTH HAS A UNIQUE WASSILY KANDINSKY PAINTING FROM THE 1930'S.

WITH WHAT APPEARS TO BE A NAZI STAMP ON THE BACK OF IT.

Olga Arkhangelskaya/3:06:40 "I think the stamp is the best province for any piece of art."

OFTEN CALLED THE "FATHER OF ABSTRACT ART" - THE RUSSIAN ARTIST LIVED IN GERMANY BEFORE HE WAS FORCED OUT BY WORLD WAR TWO.

Olga Arkhangelskaya/3:02:27 "their free creation and free expression of art was quite difficult and he disagreed strongly obviously with politics and policies of Nazis Germany."

THE OWNER OF THE PAINTING DIDN'T WANT US TO USE HIS NAME BUT SAYS HE BOUGHT IT FROM A JEWISH FAMILY IN PENNSYLVANIA A FEW YEARS BACK.

Amy Snyder/Executive Director, Naples Holocaust Museum/3:17:16 "it's not often because of the questions that surround it - it's not often that a piece like this would become public."

AMY SNYDER IS THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA.

SHE DID SOME RESEARCH ON THE PAINTING AND SAYS THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ANY CONCERN ABOUT WHERE IT CAME FROM.

Amy Snyder/3:16:57 "Anyone who survived and was able to identify something from their family's collection or gallery or what have you, it was very difficult to prove it was theirs. "It doesn't look to be that way, Kandinsky art work was confiscated straight from his own possession by Nazis."

MAKING THIS PIECE OF HISTORY A ONE OF A KIND DISPLAY.

ONE THE OWNER HINTS COULD FETCH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

Amy Snyder/3:18:31 "Anything related to this is priceless, the story behind it is almost more valuable then the piece itself."

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


SUNSHINE RETURNS TOMORROW

Quiet weather will be back again on Wednesday. For the rest of the evening our skies stay clear and our temperatures drop back to the mid and upper 50's. No rain is on the radar and non anticipated tonight.

Mostly sunny weather is on the way again tomorrow with daytime highs in the lower 80's and slightly cooler weather right at the beaches during the day. No rain forecast again tomorrow. By Thursday and Friday our humidity will start to creep back up and a few fair-weather clouds will develop in the afternoon.

In the long-range outlook we will be tracking an approaching cold front over the weekend. The front is forecast to move over the Florida peninsula and hang out for a few days. That would argue for a few showers to post in the forecast late Saturday, Sunday and Monday. At this point it still does not look like a very wet pattern is setting up for the weekend ahead. but plan on a few showers anyway.
