Sign critic cited for s


The city code inspector
issues a notice on a 'For Sale'
sign to the man who
accused him of ignoring
school referendum signs.

BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

If you're going to criticize the
police department for not writing
enough traffic tickets, watch your
driving.
The same could be said for criti-
cizing the city's code inspectors.
Norm Lupo was an outspoken
critic of the Sarasota County Schools
1-mill referendum that passed last
week by a 61-to-39 percent vote.
Lupo and other challengers filed
complaints with Venice and other
municipalities over election signs in
the right of way supporting the four-
year education tax.
In a March 15 letter to the city
clerk, Lupo states that he "thought


we had a paid code enforcement
officer whose job it is to look for
these political signs during an elec-
tion and remove them" and suggests
that "somebody ask him is he doing
his job or needs help?"
Two days later, Code Enforce-
ment Officer John Patek did cite
someone for sign violations Lupo.
"Isn't it wonderful to live in the
city ofVenice," Lupo said sarcastical-
ly.
As of Tuesday, Lupo hadn't re-
ceived the .notice in the mail and
didn't find out about it until a Ii9nice
Gondolier Sun reporter called him
for comment.
The notice was for two "For Sale"
signs and one "Open House" sign on
the right of way along Tampa
Avenue. All three were for Lupo's
condominium at the Waterfront on
Venice Island, 147 E. Tampa Ave.
Lupo had received a warning
about the signs, but the citation was
not written until a follow-up inspec-
tion, according to Patek. Evidence
photos of the signs are dated Jan. 18
and March 2.

School impact fee update in the making


Placed on the back burner until after the
referendum, Sarasota County School Board has
hired a consultant to update scho61 impact fees


before summer's end.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

If you thought the school
referendum drew heated dis-
cussion, just wait until the
school impact fee issue heats
up.
Sarasota County School
Board approved a contract
Tuesday with the same con-
sultant that helped establish
school impact fee amounts in
2004, the Henderson Young
and Company out of Wash-
ington. Their charge is to
review current school impact
fees, suggest any methodolo-
gy changes and then come up
with a new fee amount.
The contract between the
school board and Henderson
Young calls for the update to
be completed by June 30.
Henderson Young's fee is
$68,000, plus $4,200 per
meeting for at least three
school board meetings and
reimbursement of expenses.

nance that went into effect

fee. Sarasota County School
District provided the Board of
County Commissioners with
a review of the impact fees in
December 2005, but didn't
recommend an increase.

ATA GLANCE
Sarasota County school
impact fees were established
in 2004 at $?,032 for a single-
family dwelling and remain
unchanged. Dan Lobeck,
president of Control Growth
Now, believes the amount
should be twice as much.
Manatee County recently
raised its school impact fee for
single-family dwellings from
$4,080 to $5,886, Charlotte
County from $2,510 to around
$8,000, based on square
footage. St. Lucie and Lee
counties both charge $4,800
per unit.

"From the school district's
perspective, all elements (in
the methodology) ... are
working fine. There are no
recommended amendments

at this time," states the De-
cember 2005 report.
School impact fees were
established in 2004 at $2,032
for a single-family dwelling,
$474 for multifamily dwelling
and $138 for a mobile home,
with exemptions for afford-
able housing and housing for
older persons.
Impact fees for schools can
only be used for construction
of facilities required to serve
new growth. A fee is paid by
the builder prior to receiving
a certificate of occupancy for
every new dwelling or condo
unit, except in adult-only
communities where children
don't permanently reside and
affordable housing units.
Anxiously awaiting
Dan Lobeck, president of
Control Growth Now, is not
happy about the delay in
updating school impact fees.
His interpretation of the
interlocal agreement be-
tween the county and school
board is that fees are required
to be updated annually.
District officials say that isn't
the case it simply calls for a
review of impact fee method-
ology.
Lobeck claims the school
district put off a bonafide

airport property. Albee Airport, Venice's original municipal
airport, was built in 1939 over an emergency landing strip
used by Dr. Fred Albee to fly patients to the Florida
Medical Center on West Venice Avenue. The dedication
ceremony in 1939 was a gala event, according to VHPB,
and included parachute jumpers, stunt-men and sky writ-

STAFF REPORT


The Caspersen family has
but one day left to respond to
an offer by the county to pur-
chase Caspersen Beach for
$1.73 million or face possible
condemnation proceedings.
Nine days ago, after 22
months of waiting, Sarasota
County Attorney Richard
(Dick) Nelson hand delivered
a letter to Finn W. Caspersen


prior to a presentation at
the March 11 county com-
mission meeting. Caspersen
was given 10 days to consid-
er the offer:
Caspersen said he had ap-
peared on the agenda before
the commission to protest
delay on the county's part.
"Five minutes before I was
to appear Mr. Nelson handed
me a letter offering the fam-
ily $1.73 million for 9,100


feet or 110 acres of gulf front
property," Caspersen said.
Both Caspersens and Nel-
son refused to divulge the
offer that day but Caspersen
termed the amount "damned
ridiculous."
The $1.73 million figure
is less than half the original
county preliminary appraisal
of $3.66 million.

this was a ploy to allow Nel-

County Commissioner
Beverly Clay asked Tuesday
that the amount be made

are being used for the land

ESTIMATED JACKPOT $10 MILLION


S1% Mortgage
No Broker Fees, No Points or Loan Origination Fees
No Income Verification
Sound too good to be true?
This new hybrid mortgage is for the homeowner who wants
the lowest monthly payment possible, period! At only,
$321.00 per month, per $100,000 you can see how your
monthly savings could be tremendous if you combined
mortgages and paid off credit cards and bills. This is not an
introductory teaser or gimmick, but is a 30-year mortgage
and the 1% is for the first 5 years. You will have a fixed
payment schedule that will not change..
Here is the real Truth in Lending.
Because the 1% payment is so small, 'you are only paying
about 1/2 the monthly interest due. This makes your
payment about half of what an interest only payment
would be. The lender adds the unpaid interest back to your
principle balance, to be paid later. The beauty here is your
new future gift of equity appreciation pays this interest
later, instead of your hard earned money today. In real
dollars your balance could increase 3 to 5% per year. This is
only $3000 to $5000 per year per $100,000 (this is the same
amount you save per year). This is pocket change compared
to the record equity growth we have been blessed with here
in Southwest Florida. Our homes are appreciating $25,000
to $50,000 or more per year. The real bottom line here is
you get a real low payment and you still net tremendous
cash equity even though your balance increases slightly.
The realty is that 1% is not your note rate, but is merely a
numeric percentage used to calculate the actual amount of
your extremely low monthly payment. Your actual note rate
is adjustable, based on the Libor index plus a margin for
the lender. At a note rate of 6%, your APR would be about
6.5%. If-your note rate would increase, it has no affect on
your monthly payment. It only affects the amount you defer
to your balance to be paid later by your new gift of equity.
Again this program is for the homeowner who wants the
absolute smallest monthly payment they can pay.

Because hunger knows no boundaries


STAFF REPORT


About 17 years ago a group
of individuals representing
many ,religious denomina-
tions came together to help
solve the problem of hunger
in our conununity. The doors
to All Faiths Food Bank
opened in May 1990 in a rent-
ed: warehouse on School
Street in Sarasota.
In October 1994 it moved
to its current address on
Cattleman Road in Sarasota.
All Faiths Food Bank is a
member of America's Second
Harvest, which is the nation's
network, of more than 200
food banks fighting hunger in
every state and county in the
nation.
The mission of All Faiths
Food Bank is: "To feed those
in need, reduce food waste
and educate the community
as to the issues of hunger."
It is with this in mind that
the Friends of All Faiths Food
Bank are presenting the third
annual Casino Night. The
proceeds from the event will
go toward supporting the
many local agencies that use
All Faiths Food Bank.
Let the organizations that
rely bn the food bank tell you
what it means to them:
Senior Friendship Centers
By Keith Backhaus
It, is hard to imagine being
in your late 80s and hungry. It
is even harder to imagine this
in Sarasota County.
One day a couple came
by my office in the Senior
Friendship Centers-Venice.
They asked for help with
something minor, but as we
talked I learned they were


selling off their possessions
just to keep their lot rent paid.
Out of the blue she asked if
she could have just a couple
of crackers for her husband
because he had not eaten and
was a diabetic.
They ate a big lunch on the
table Brother Geenen used to
start the Senior Friendship
Centers many years ago.
I am no longer sure how
many times I have encoun-
tered a similar situation over
the last six years, but I am just
as shocked each time. "Not
here," my mind says.
Six years ago we started out
with a bag or two of food from
All Faiths Food Bankirn our car
trunks. It was just for emer-
gencies. Soon we were carry-
ing 10 bags, and now volun-
teers deliver almost 100 food
bags each month to elders
who have a hard time access-
ing the local food pantry.
We keep some food at the
center for emergencies like
the one above and a donated
small freezer stocked with
some frozen chickens and
things from the All Faiths
Food Bank to make someone
a meal.
We never intended to have
such a program, but those
elders who ask for help for the
first time; often come to the
center, and this way we can
give therm immediate assis-
tance and refer them to other
local resources.
We are one of two programs
that take the food bags to
these isolated elders. The
friendly visit and the food bag
make a powerful statement
of hope and caring.
The generosity and great
staff of All Faiths Food Bank


always overwhelm me; with-
out them we could not keep
the food program going.
They supply us the basics
and we can spend any other
funds donated to add elder-
specific foods to the food bags
and meet emergency needs.
We most often spend it with
them because their volume
purchasing helps us stretch
these scarce dollars a long
way.
Each month the folks from
the Easter Seals program
come on a bus with some
80-plus bags of food. They are
such a great, ,happy bunch
and most often eat their
lunch on a picnic table near
the Intracoastal here at the
Senior Friendship Centers.
Without their help and
labor in packing and bringing
the food from Sarasota, we
could not have our Friendly
Visitor Volunteers spread out
on their routes to visit and

We encountered an elder
on a home visit who was try-

food supplier for the South
County area.
We have served 608 fami-


lies with food from November
2005-January 2006. This does
not include the extra holiday
food given for Thanksgiving
and Christmas. And at least 80
percent of the food was given

Moore opposes



charter officer change


Ducks stuck


Three council members support the idea
of making the finance director a 'regular'
employee .in the city manager's office.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

At least one city council
member thinks the city's fi-
nance director should remain
a charter officer.
Charter Review Committee
met last Thursday and lis-
tened to testimony from sev-
eral Venice City Council
members about proposed
changes to the city charter,
which governs how the city
operates.
John Moore was the only
one of four council members
who spoke to defend.keeping
the finance director as a
charter officer reporting di-
rectly to city council.
Other council members
have suggested making the
finance director an employee
in the city manager's office
because there are no real
checks and balances in the
charter. According to Moore,
however, that .is the fault of
council members not adher-
ing to the charter and requir-
ing the finance director be
their "chief fiscal advisor."
"I'm very comfortable
with that. That's the way city
council has worked for years,
and it has worked very well,"
Moore said.
Moore's interpretation of
the city charter has the fi-
nance director advising
council members on money
issues. While the city man-
ager may say buying a gar-
bage truck will help opera-
tions, it's up to an indepen-
dent finance director to de-
cide if that's a. st iart idig'"or
to render fiscal,.opinions on
city leases.
"That's what I would want
from my finance director,
some checks and balances,"
Moore said. "It's really no more
complicated than that."


ATA GLANCE
The Charter Review
Committee is considering four
major
revisions to the city charter,
which is basically Venice's
constitution. Three
of the four proposals would
grant more power to the city
manager, while the fourth
proposal would alter term linm-
its for council members.
i The next public meeting is
at 1:30 p.m. April 6 in council
chambers of City Hall. Public
input is asked for at every
meeting, as any changes
would have to go to a vote in
November.

The committee also is re-
viewing the idea of giving the
city manager the power to
hire, fire and suspend the
police and fire chiefs and the
authority to launch internal
management audits without
council approval.
The fourth proposed
change would change term
limits so that nine consecu-
tive years as a council mem-
ber do not count against
mayoral term limits, and vice
versa.
Hybrid
Committee member Greg
Shanika was among those
interested in how Moore
views the finance director as
a charter officer position.
For years it seems the,
finance director has been
treated like someone who
tbalfnce's chelkbo k \wlfin7
,in reality, he orLsheasJq4uld
be shaping financial policy
decisions.
"Do we simply want the
finance director to just be a
bookkeeper or an actual fi-
nancial advisor? ... It seems


M 6

merchandise less than $500 r-mms


like we have a sort of hybrid
right now," Shanika said.
Mayor Dean Calamaras,
Vice Mayor Fred Hammett
and council member John
Simmonds all believe it's best
to make the finance director
an employee of the city man-
ager's office.
In their opinion, charter
officer status was why it took
nearly two years to hire a
new finance director, and the
city charter as it's written
- doesn't offer any true
checks and balances.
"We don't have enough
information or expertise to
supervise a finance director,"
Simmonds told the commit-
tee. "We just spent two years
looking for a finance director
as good as (the retired) Mike
McPhail. As soon as they
heard (it was a charter offic-
er), they were turned off
immediately."

-thority has been advised to

problems.

North Venic



its own storE

The first retail development is approved
for Laurel and Knights Trail roads, despite
concerns about traffic congestion
at the intersection one commissioner
calls a'nightmare.'


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


For. years, a gas station
with a, convenience store
and pizza shop has been the
only'retail spot to North
Venice's industrial park and
an expected 9,000 homes.
That's about to change.
The Venice Planning Com-
mission approved site plans
for the Shoppes of Laurel
Square shopping plaza Tues-
day. The 42,000-square-foot
center will be divided among
three buildings on the nearly
5-acre parcel at the north-
west intersection of Precision
Drive and Discovery Way.
The BP gas station will be
the plaza's neighbor to the
east. All other North Venice
existing development east of
1-75 is either industrial or
residential.
Traffic congestion at the
Knights Trail and Laurel inter-
section prompted planning
commission member Benny
Weaver to cast the lone dis-
senting vote. I
"Do you know how you
intend to get people in and
out of there?" Weaver asked
the developer. ,"What's gotten
to be a bad situation out
there will only be made


worse. Now is not the time
for this. ... You're creating a
nightmare out there, and the
nightmare is already there."
Laurel and Knights Trail
are county roads. The devel-
oper's engineer said Sarasota
County will file intersection
improvement plans by the
end of the week, and con-
struction for road widening
and traffic signals could be-
gin by January.
The Venice planning de-
partment agreed with the
developer. City impact fee
money has already been
allocated and funding is in
place, according to city
comprehensive planner Don
Caillouette.
That was good enough for
the remaining planning com-
missioners.
"This will be a nice addi-
tion to the city," planning
commission chair John
Osmulski said.
Other news
Also at Tuesday's planning
commission meeting:
Venice Commons delay-
ed Developers withdrew
expansion proposals for Ven-
ice Commons shopping cen-
ter at the southeastern comer
of Venice Avenue and Pine-


gets





brook Road before it could
be denied. A clear majority
of commissioners appeared
ready to vote against the
project because of five office
buildings they said failed to
meet Venetian Gateway Dis-
trict appearance standards.
"We, would be taking a
step backward to approve
these five office buildings. ...
The Mobil (gas) station looks
better than this," Weaver said.
The shopping plaza owners
will revise the plans and
resubmit. The proposal has
two major areas of expansion
and involves retail and offices.
The planning commission
had no objections to the retail
expansion, listed at about
23,000 square feet. The five
office buildings would have
been 25,000 square feet.
Venice Commons also would
add 209 parking spaces.
Pregnancy parking -
Planning commissioners ap-
proved a motion asking
Venice City Council to con-
sider creating an "Expectant
Mother" parking ordinance.
Commissioner Janice Hollo-
way asked a year ago for the
parking signs, similar to
handicap-parking signs, be
placed in local parks. In an
update Tuesday, she was
told city staff concluded it
was not possible because
there is no "Expectant
Mother" parking ordinance
in Venice.

County wants city input


on East Venice Avenue plan


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Hearing about a commun-
ity plan for the first time,
Sarasota County Commis-
sioners decided Tuesday to
allay some fears long before.
it can be formally implement-
ed.
The East Venice Avenue
Community Plan is intended
to be the answer to a recent
spate of uncontrolled growth
in the area.
The county commission-
ers went so far as to impose
a building moratorium in
October to last until July.
On Tuesday, they ruled
that any rezoning or develop-
ment project already in the
county building development
process is exempt from any
future ordinance which could
be in place.
Anne Merrill, a consultant
hired to create the plan, said
the idea of the plan is to
cre-ate a neighborhood feel
without the area losing its
rural feel.
Tuesday was the first of
two public hearings that
could eventually lead to the
development of an ordinance
to guide future development.
The next meeting is at 5 p.m.
April 11.
During the public com-
ment portion of the hearing,
the commissioners heard
from developers and proper-
ty owners who are afraid of
the guidelines, saying they go
to far.
Commission chair David
Mills said that at his first
look, they are too much.
"Maybe we are trying to


do a little overplaning," Mills
said. "I have some real ap-
prehensions."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said she wants more
public comment at the next
hearing since no individual
homeowners were there to
offer input.
"I know there is a lot of
interest there, and I am a little
disappointed," Staub said.
She also led a board effort
to create exemption zones
within the district on either
end of Venice Avenue.
"Those, plus what is in the
pipeline, really shouldn't be
a part of this," Staub con-
cluded.
The board also was wor-
ried about the lack of com-
ment from Venice city offi-
cials, especially in light of
recent comments by Venice
City Council members who
complained about a lack of
opportunities to provide in-
put.
Tate Taylor, a county


planner, said invitations and
notices were sent, but no
responses. Those invitations,
however, were for the city to
sit in the audience instead of
participate, according to the
ones Venice City Manager
Marty Black received.
The commissioners later
agreed to send a letter to
the city manager and the
council members asking for
their input.
The boundaries of the
planning area are Jacaranda
Boulevard to the west, North
River Road to the east, Inter-
state 75 to the north, and
one block south of East
Venice Avenue to the south.
The basic plan calls for
two different guidelines for
the north and south sides of
East Venice Avenue, a grid
system for the north side
and an interconnected com-
munity to the south.

Why VLhigh gas prices? HereILa list





Why high gasprices? Here's a list


BY BOB FLISS
BUSINESS WRITER

Iran's nuclear ambitions...
sectarian violence in Nigeria
... a neo-Marxist regime in
Venezuela ... growing de-
mand from China ... hurri-
cane damage to Gulf of Mex-
ico refineries ... complex
environmental regulations ...
rising taxes ... exploration
and drilling stifled by pres-
sure from the Green move-
ment.
Without much effort, there
are eight reasons why gaso-.
line prices are so high. This
list covers a good deal of terri-
tory but by no means ex-
hausts the possibilities.


Florida Attorney General
Charlie Crist has stated that
there appears to be no evi-
dence of systemic price-fixing
by oil companies. However,
there have been individual
cases of price-gouging.
That's the basic lay of the
land as Florida approaches
what promises to be another
jittery year at the gas pump.
"I kind of expected it to
increase sooner or later.
There's nothing you can do
about it but pay it," said
motorist Keith Plummer.
The last couple of, weeks
have seen a roughly 20-cent
increase for all grades of gaso-
line statewide, wiping out any
sense of relief that motorists


might have felt since the 2005
hurricane season ended.
As area residents celebrat-
ed St. Patrick's Day Friday,
prices were hovering in the
$2.50 to $2.60 a gallon range
for regular unleaded. Mid-
grade and premium were
normally 10 cents and 20
cents higher.
"It stinks," said Brian Pet-
erson. "I drive a lot and there's
no way around paying it ...
You know it's going to get
worse this summer when the
hurricanes come."
Still down
Peterson's comment is a
good example of how nothing
puts fear into American con-


sumers like a rise in gas
prices.
Gasoline is among the few
of life's necessities that have
no substitute. Don't like the
price of breakfast cereal? Try
eggs. Don't like the price of a
tool at Home Depot? Try
Lowe's.
And for any American age
40 or older, there are also the
bad memories from the 1970s
- gas lines, odd and even
days. If any good has come
from the current tight market,
it's that gasoline has always
been available, albeit at a
price.
Even in the worst days fol-
lowing Hurricane Katrina,
only a few stations closed


briefly for lack of supply.
Although political instabil-
ity in oil-producing regions
worldwide is the biggest rea-
son for high crude petroleum
prices, there are other factors
at work that may not be get-
ting enough attention.
Fuel taxes represent any-
where from 42 to 52 cents,
rounded, of the price of a gal-
lon of gasoline in Florida. This
begins with a federal excise
tax of 18.4 cents a gallon. Add
to this a 14.9-cent state tax,
up from 14.5 cents in 2005.
Finally, there's a confusing
group of local option taxes -
a penny here, a nickel there.
Hurricane Katrina did ex-
tensive damage to refineries


and drilling installations in
the Gulf of Mexico region. The
industry responded to the cri-
sis decisively. But much work
remains to be done and lost
capacity will probably affect
gasoline prices for. many '
months.
Boutique fuels
On March 9,, federal En-
ergy Secretary Sam Bodman I
testified before Congress that

County Administrator Jim
Ley said the county, too, has
been patiently waiting for an
update of impact fees.
"We're anxious to receive
the school board's update,"
Ley said.
Controversy
School impact fees have a
history of controversy. .
'Fiscal neutrality' is an
emerging trend statewide and
nationally that supports im-
pact fees. There are a lot of
folks who believe strongly
growth should pay its own
way," Associate Superinten-
dent Bob Early said.
"Others do not," he said,

The consequence of main-

said.
"The result is more inade-

more subsidies of growth by

South Creek algal bloom will eventually dissipate


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


If you've been concerned
about the large and growing
masses of what looks from the
shore like burned grass float-
ing in South Creek and other
waterways in Nokomis and
Osprey, you can relax.
They are not harmful, and
they should be breaking up
soon, according to Elizabeth
Jensen, a biologist with the
Florida Park Service district
office at Oscar Scherer State
Park.
"It's neither sea grass nor
land grass," Jensen said of a
mass of the material covering
about 25 percent of South
Creek off Sorrento Shores on
the west side of U.S. 41 in
Nokomis.
But it was enough to worry
Marvin Gaines of Renoir
Drive. He and neighbors had
begun noticing the material
on the opposite, or north, side
of the creek about two
months ago.
"I've been living here for 18
years," he said. "Except for
some small patches of the
stuff on mangrove trees, I've
never seen such big clumps
before. And neither have my
neighbors."
Jensen believes that it is an
algal bloom, and that in South
Creek residents have seen
algal matts, which she de-
scribed as large accumula-
tions of algae.


GAS from Page 6A.
17 percent about 255,000
barrels of crude oil a day -
isn't coming back any time
soon.
This production represents
mostly older drilling plat-
forms and oil fields that are
nearly played out. Oil compa-
nies are building new plat-
forms jand_drilling in more-
promising locations, but this
will take rime.
Bodman also told Con-
gress that there's better news
on the refining front three
hurricane-damaged refiner-
ies should be producing by
mid-April, adding badly
needed capacity.
Another largely unnoticed
factor driving up gasoline
prices is the increasing
prominence of so-called
"boutique fuels," said Kevin
Bakewell, senior vice presi-
dent of AAAAuto Club South.
The Environmental Pro-
tection Agency mandates that
gasoline be specially formu-
lated for various markets,
depending on how badly the
community is doing on meet-
ing its federal air emissions
requirements. As a result, the
gallon of unleaded you buy
here is probably not quite the
same as the gallon you buy in
Atlanta.
"They might add chemi-
cals to keep the gasoline from
evaporating as fast in the hot
weather," Bakewell said.
There are now literally
dozens of these formulations,
and early spring is the time of
year when refineries are
changing over from winter to
summer gasolines. This tends
to drive up production ex-
penses.
"Boutique fuels were a
good idea that got out of
hand," Bakewell said. "And as
metro areas go in or out of
compliance, the government
keeps changing the require-
ments, which makes it
worse."

"Nutrients, light and tem-
perature keep the algae alive,"
she pointed out. "It grows on
the creek bed, and when it
dies, the algae rise to the sur-
face. Bubbles are often seen
on the surface. They're a
byproduct of oxygen in the


photosynthesis process."
Gaines; a next-door neigh-
bor, Seward Smith; and
Donald Sibbett of DaVinci
Drive in Sorrento East, on the
east side of U.S.41, revealed
that they had been trying for
weeks to determine what was


floating in South Creek.
Smaller patches began to
appear several days ago on
Sibbett's side of the highway.
He also said he had never
seen them before.
The switchboard operator
at Oscar Scherer State Park


SP


complained that "we've been
swamped with calls about the
stuff for weeks. What is it?"
Jensen explained that the
larger masses of algae are
formed by the wind, which
pushes the matts together.
"It will break up eventually,


and those people on the
creeks can stop worrying,"
she said.
"But if you're going off-
shore in your boat," she
warned; "try to avoid any that
you see. It could damage your
propeller."

EWD expansion option is worth a look


proposal floated recently by Sarasota
A County Commissioner Shannon Staub
merits scrutiny.
During a commission workshop, Staub
proposed allowing the Englewood Water dis-
trict to expand north and east into Sarasota
County.
On the face of it, the idea has merit. But there
is good and bad potential in the proposal.
First, the good news: It would make sense
for the Englewood Water District to consoli-
date its operations from Cape Haze through
the rapidly developing areas of Southwest
Sarasota County. North Port is growing at a
rapid pace, and there are plans to bring an
entirely new village into being on the site of
the old Taylor Ranch. '


Roger Rasbury, a county environmental
services official, said there are more than
20,000 potential utility customers in unincor-
porated parts of South County.
The Englewood Water Utility has a strong
reputation for dependable service. Recently the
utility has moved to acquire several of the
smaller utilities in the area, which were left over
from the days of wide-open development.'
Such' moves could lower costs and avoid'
duplication of services. They also serve to
help monitor the volume of water, which is
becoming a scarce commodity in Southwest
Florida.'
The Englewood Water Distfict is already
creeping up Manasota Key, at the imitation
of local residents. Good government should


not be predicated solely on county lines, and
if the utility can handle the business, why
restrict its work?
Staub's proposal also takes, into account
the growing cost to the county of keeping the
water flowing. The utilities department has a
debt of more than $360 million.
But all that said, there is reason to think
long and hard about Staub's idea. -
What works in Englewood, where a largely
contiguous area is served by the district, may
not work if expansion moves the utility oper-
ations far from its base. Any expansion that
comes too rapidly carries with it the potential
for over-extending resources.
Also, would there be initial higher costs to
current ratepayers to finance infrastructure


improvements, new equipment and person-
nel to handle any expansion? At no point
should current ratepayers be taxed to pro-
vide new residents with service. -
With those caveats in mind, we see no rea-
son why the idea of EWD moving into areas
of South Venice and further north should not
be considered. It's a way of addressing the
historic' myopia of Sarasota County govern-
ment regarding South County without fur-
ther straining overstretched government
resources.
The county should sweeten the pot with
incentives, and continue its wise policy of
findingways to workwith other governments
to continue to bring urban services to unin-
corporated areas.


Land here



and there


News item: The city of
Venice found a piece of land it
did not want to annex!
,"We1ll. that s not exactlv-
true, Actually, city staff did
recommend the annexation,
of a property in the Myakka
flood plain in .the North
Venice area, but the planning
commission turned it down.
Benny Weaver asked rele-
vant questions, including the
one I believe sank the propos-
al: "Why should we do this
and what's in it for the city?"
or similar words. The answer
was, essentially: "Nothing."
Weaver, almost alone on
the commission, often asks
hard questions about devel-
opment issues, although this
time he had support from
other members and the vote
not to recommend annexa-
tion was unanimous.
Ship ahoy
City Manager Marty Black
met with Housing and Urban
Development officials while
in Washington on airport
shatters and asked for $2 mil-
lion to assist with the design,
engineering and construction
of a 200- to 400-slip marina
with public boat launch and
promenade. The proposed
funding would be an eco-
nomic development project
at the airport.
I asked Black what kind of
a grant request he submitted,
as I had heard it was some
kind of "earmarked" funding
of the kind much in the news
these days. He said HUD wel-
comed an informal letter-of-
interest type proposal.
From my experience in
Washington, there were re-
markable differences be-
tween agencies as to what
kind of formal proposal they
required. The. Department of
Education had a very formal
process. HUD, like the Labor
Department in my day, seems
to have a simpler system: float
an idea and if they like it,
bingo! Approval, however, is
not assured.
At the airport advisory
committee March 8, the sub-
ject of a marina came up. The
chair, Paul Hollowell, who
conducted the meeting in an
efficient and courteous fash-
ion, stated that moving the jet
facilities away from their cur-
rent location to the east side
of the airport had the highest
priority for that land. I asked


Black about that and he said
there was plenty of room for
both on the east side.
In contrast to Hollowell's
demeanor, the vice chair, Jo-
seph Rand, took what seemed
.to me to be a very aggressive
posture in responding to the
concerns of residents ques-
tioning why the airport was
moving ahead to rehabilitate
runway 13-31, rather than 4-
22, and also raising noise and
pollution issues.
Rand announced he was a
"scientist" and insisted that
citizens produce data when
they spoke of increasing
numbers of, flights and in-
creased noise. He reported
that a survey. done by, the
Venice Aviation Society found
that both runways were used
in each direction about the
same percentage of time.
He answered committee
member Jim Leis' question
about why the committee
was recommending approval
before the final financial data
were available to them by say-
ing curtly that he "trusted"
airport manager Fred Watts.
Bebe Teichman, a citizen,
said she liked the noise of
planes and that jets brought
money to the city. Rand did
not ask her to cite her data
sources. I did, later, and'
Teichman, a pilot herself, said
she knew of no studies.
I asked Rand how he saw
his role on the committee -
as an advocate for aviation
interests or as a representa-
tive of the citizens at large. He
told me he was neither; he
was a "technical advisor for
the city council."
I checked the information
he filed with the city when
applying for the committee
appointment and it says he is
an endocrinologist who
seems to have received his
single-engine private pilot's

C.J. Fishman, president of

umn to my reporting his re-

ing.
Rather than discuss the re-

of CQG political contribu-

chose to criticize me for not
being charitable, or involved
with church and community
functions.
It's not the first time a CQG

as the other ones. I am and

Manufacture help for manufactured homes


Editor:
The Sarasota County commissioners' recent support of the
idea of manufactured homes as an "affordable" housing solu-
tion for many of Florida's median income employees is com-
mendable.'
This "solution" should be pursued posthaste; however, there
are some obstacles to overcome that may require action of the
Florida Legislature.
Few banks and mortgage companies in our area will under-
write a mortgage on a manufactured home, and these mort-
gages are at a higher rate than is required for a site-built home.
This factor eliminates manufactured-home buyers who must
seek a mortgage for much of the cost of the home.
Since insurance companies in Florida have suffered great
losses due to hurricane damage, many, manufactured home
owners have had their policies canceled even if they had no
claims, as the insurance carriers have reduced their exposure
'in Florida.
Some insurance companies continuing to cover manufac-
tured homes in our area no longer underwrite "replacement"
costs. This means that mortgage lenders may find their "collat-
eral" in the manufactured home is not sufficiently covered to
protect their risk of loss. '
Even where the potential buyer of a manufactured home
has been able to arrange a mortgage and adequate insurance,
zoning and permitting regulations may block the placing of the
home on a suitable lot.
There is no doubt that manufactured homes are an answer
to the affordable-housing problem in Florida. The quality of
construction, the comfort, convenience, and curb appeal of
these homes are all pluses for this type of housing.
It is time our legislators took steps to remove the obstacles
mentioned here.

New chief
just in time
Editor:
If there was need of any
further evidence that the
Venice Police Department is
in urgent need of a new
broom in the form of a no-
nonsense female chief, it was
provided by the farce of
Friday's "terrorist" attack on
city hall.
When our male police
believe a presumably senile
citizen's 9-1-1 call that some
Hispanics of "Middle Eastern"
appearance plan to blow up
our mission-critical local gov-
ernment offices with not just
one but two trucks full of
dynamite, and they send out


a two-county security alert,
then we would be better off
converting the whole force to
down-to-earth women offi-


cers.


Isn't anyone
else fed up?
Editor:
Just what will it
the American peol
look beyond the
see that the Repub
House and the I
Party simply refuse
to their mistakes?
The thought of
ports of our count


people from another country
is a disaster ready and waiting
to happen., Katrina was a dis-
aster, but the Republicans
and our president are trying
to put the blame on anyone
except themselves., The
Democrats feel that they can
do much better.
What is wrong with the
American people that they
will not say enough is enough
and take back our country
before we are no longer the
America that we have known
and loved? Let us not let it be
destroyed by incompetent
people.
Are the wiretaps that are
going on the way we want to
live in this country? Are we so
fearful that we will sit back
and allow these things to hap-
pen? Do we want our children
and grandchildren to live
under the shadow of fear?
An investigation into the
White House and the Repub-
lican regime needs to weed
out the corruption there. Let
us help our own people for a
change. Bring our boys home
from war-torn Iraq. Enough
blood has been shed, and for
what reason?
We need to be able to trust
our government once again.

Bush is no
John Clarke conservative
Venice Editor:
I find the letters about the
Bush administration interest-
ing. I am a conservative Re-
publican, and what I don't
understand is how anyone
t take to get with one eye and half a brain
ple to really could support this adminis-
surface to traction and yes, I voted for
)lican White him the first time.
Republican I don't know how to de-
e to own up scribe this regime, other than
crooks. They are not conserv-
having the ative; they are more like tax-
itry run by and-spend Democrats, ex-


cept they don't tax the very
rich. They are wrecking our
economy with the national
debt, loss of jobs and trade
deficits.
The war in Iraq is a sham; it'
never was about terrorists.
Sept. 11 was but an excuse,
and I can't believe the Amer-
ican people bought into it. I
don't know the reasons, but
you can bet it involves greed,
money, power, influence and
a great deal of arrogance.
Not one shred of evidence
linked Iraq to Sept. 11. We
were attacked by 19 terrorists,
15 of whom were Saudis.
Osama bin Laden is a Saudi.
The bin Laden family is a rich
Saudi family. Have you ever
heard this administration
mention the Saudis? I am
sure you know that the Bush
family and others of influence
have economic ties with the
Saudis.
It is not only the adminis-
tration that is crooked, our
entire Congress has been
bought by the lobbyists for
the rich and powerful, and
until we 300 million little peo-
ple demand real reform, it will
not change. We will always be
at the mercy of the top 1 per-
cent.

Cutouts unused because

Leasing a lot is a bad idea


Not prepared. In response to the lady who purchased her
manufactured home in Bay Indies: It is not the fault of Venice,
the county or the state that she finds herself in a very unfortu-
nate situation. I have lived in my wonderful park for 30 years
and have the same amenities as Bay Indies. The difference is
that years ago, we had some very intelligent people heading
our association who had the foresight to prepare for a possible
sale, should the opportunity arise. Bay Indies residents had the
same opportunity to buy their land, but they were not pre-
pared. Now, the homeowners will suffer because they do not
own their land. I could only wonder why anyone would want
to pay outrageous lot rents without looking into land-owned
parks. Manufactured home living is a wonderful way of life. But
my advice to future buyers is, do your homework.


Stinky town. I'm in down-
town Venice right now, came
down to mail a postcard at the
post office. The wind is blow-
ing and wow, downtown Ven-
ice smells like sewer. What a
stench.
Terrible traffic. I just came
into Venice from North Ven-
ice. I'll tell you, the traffic,
because of the bridge being
up for a boat ... all the damn
lights were red, which I think
is asinine. I don't understand
that. People are going through
the gas station, the old other
station that closed up, all this
near Miami Avenue. Terrible,
terrible. We waited a long
time. I don't think that's right.
I really, really don't. For one
stupid bQat we have to do
this.
Not free. I was very disap-
pointed at the Italian Fest last
weekend. It was advertised as
free to the public. When I
arrived there,-I had to pay $3
to park my car. When I ques-
tioned that, they said it was to
park the car, it's still free to the
public, you can leave your car
home and walk in.
Well, anyway you slice it, it
still cost $3 to get in. I was very
disappointed, and in the
future, I think they should
advertise that the admission
is free, but it's $3 to park your
car.
Dirty dealing. I'm wonder-
ing \why would the Washing-
ton, D.C., military contractor


who pleaded guilty to paying
more than $1 million in brib-
es to California Republican
Congressman Randy Cun-
ningham, also turn out to be
the exact same person who
was responsible for the largest
contribution to Katherine
Harris' political war chest. Do
you think she ever asked
Mitchell Wade, the briber,
why would you want to do
that and give me that kind of
money?
Go back to two. I really
used to like the Gondolier
Sun. I really wish that you
would go back to publishing
twice a week and not three
times. It's seems to me that'
the major changes in going to
three times a week are'the fol-
lowing: One, a heavy increase
in advertising, and we are just
overwhelmed by the ads; two,
articles about North Port,
Warm Mineral Springs, Key
West, Mount Dora, Arcadia
and other nonlocal places;
three, boring articles with


bylines of staff report, instead
of identification of names and
writers; four, long articles de-
scribing real estate for sale -
those should be in the classi-
fied section; five, do.we really
need six or seven installments
of moment-by-moment act-
ivities of people on vacation
in Bali?
An embarrassment. Just
returned from a minor league
football game in Venice, the
Venice Vikings. You could hear
the profanity from the coach-
ing staff in the top row, and
about half way through the
game, the head coach was ar-
rested on the field. The police
came on the field and hand-
cuffed him after he assaulted
one of his own players. And
they wonder why the com-
munity doesn't support the
team.
I would never take my. kid
there. Why would you take
your kids there to listen to the
profanity and watch adults
assault each other and get ar-
rested on the field? It's ridicu-
lous. It was an embarrass-
ment to be a citizen ofVenice.
Doing what's best. Lopez
should not be out in Venice,
Lopez should get a raise and
be held in our highest regard
because he is doing what's
best for Venice reducing
the number of low-income
units. Good for him.

eign ports if you disown

there are 12-inch curbs. Thus,

It is my understanding that
soon the county will be
putting down access curbing

Venice yacht stolen


Waiting for help


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Authorities are still trying
to make all the pieces fit, but
according to various police
and U.S. Coast Guard reports,
there may be a new entry in
this year's dumbest criminal
competition.
Two men decided to go for
an unauthorized boat ride
last weekend and apparently
figured as long as they were
going to steal a boat, they
should ride in style. So they
stole' a 35-foot Tiara "yacht"
owned by a Venice resident
and valued at $249,000.
It has an inboard diesel
engine and a fiberglass hull.
The boat was last seen by
the owner's son docked at the


owner's residence north of
the Venice Yacht Club at
about 11 p.m., March 18.
It was discovered missing
about 4:30 a.m. Sunday.
The owner's son said he
used the boat on the 18th
during the day.
He said he left the keys hid-
den in the boat near where
the maps are kept.
The suspects also figured if
they took off all the decals,
including the registration
numbers, nobody would sus-
pect the boat was stolen and
it would be impossible to
trace.
They headed south to Fort
Myers and anchored al-
most off Sanibel Island,
according to police.
"They drifted and wound
up miles offshore," Venice
Police Detective Sgt. Mike
Treanor said. "None of the
onboard electronics worked,
so they couldn't call for help.
Maybe they ran down the bat-
teries."
Treanor said he was told


they finally shot off flares. The
men were rescued by the U.S.
Coast Guard and immediate-
ly arrested for stealing the
boat.
The USCG turned over the
suspected thieves to the Lee
County Sheriff's Office.
The men identified them-
selves to authorities as Tim-
othy Frost, 21, and Cody
Thomas, 19, according to
Venice police.
They gave a Punta Gorda
address, Treanor said.
However, local police think
at least one may be from the
Venice area.
Local investigators are still
trying to make positive iden-
tifications through finger-
prints.
Investigators also believe
that one of the men has a
criminal history.
The pair was charged with
grand theft, police said.

Patrick Kelly was returning
to North Port from Sarasota
after having the decals
changed on an ambulance
when he spotted a minivan
overturned in the woods on
Interstate 75.
"I was the first on the scene
and called it in," Kelly said.
Kelly immediately started
first aid on the two occupants
of the vehicle. He continued
to help Sarasota County Fire

"He gave a great size-up of
the accident, which dispatch
said helped them greatly,"
said NPFD Deputy Chief
Howard Bearse.
"I was a single man and
out-of-service when I came
upon the accident," Kelly.
said, who did not hesitate to
jump in and start helping.
After both patients were
taken to area hospitals, he
received thanks from every
Sarasota County firefighter at

North Port Fire Rescue firefighter/EMT Patrick Kelly, front,
helps Sarasota County rescue workers pull a victim from a ,
minivan that overturned on Interstate 75 Friday. Kelly was
returning from Sarasota when he was the first to find the van
overturned in the woods.


Bearse said. "Now he is a
member of our tactical
search-and-rescue team."
According to Sgt. Herbert
Head of the Florida Highway
Patrol, a preliminary investi-
gation indicates the minivan
was traveling south on 1-75
when a tractor-trailer either
cut it off or hit it.
The passenger of the mini-
van died en-route to Doctor's
Hospital in Sarasota. The dri-
ver of the minivan was flown
to Bayfront Medical Center in
St. Petersburg by Bayflite. He
was in serious condition,
according to police.

Indians rally to snap losing streak


Venice tops Manatee
for the second time this
season.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

After a week looking like
they were spaced out, the
Venice High baseball Indians
returned to planet Earth
Tuesday night with a 4-3 vic-
tory over visiting Manatee.
"We played the way Ven-
ice High is supposed to
play," Venice head coach
Craig Faulkner said. "Even if
we would have lost tonight,
I still would have been proud
of the way we played."
Venice had lost three in a
row last week to North Port,


Orlando Boone and Char-
lotte.
The skid was snapped
against Manatee, one of the
top teams in Class 5A District
12. In fact, if it wasn't for
Venice, Manatee would be
unbeaten in district play.
Manatee fell to 9-4 overall
and 7-2 in district. Venice
also won at Manatee earlier
this season.
In Tuesday's game, Venice
got excellent starting pitching
from Jeremie Cook and in-
spired relief from Brett Holte.
Jordan Lucas and Jordan
Wean were back on the left
side of the infield after miss-
ing action because of injuries.
"This was the first light I
thought Lucas was 100 per-
cent back," Faulkner said of

Tilka tough out of the 'pen for Daytona


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Andrew Tilka never got to
realize his full potential at
Venice High because of a
touch of tendinitis in his
throwing arm during his
senior season.
But the coaches at Day-
tona Beach Community
College have learned that a
healthy Tilka can go a long


way as far as holding down
the bullpen fort.
Now a freshman hurler, the
right-handed Tilka has been
DBCC's top reliever this sea-
son according to pitching
coach Chris Reilly.
Daytona Beach owns an
18-8 overall record and is 6-3
so far in Mid Florida Con-
ference play.
Tilka has appeared in 10
games with a record of 2-2.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Players, coaches, families,
friends and fans got together
Tuesday night at the Venice
Community Center to toast
Venice High's 2005-06 boys
basketball season.
There was a pasta dinner
served up by Kaydie Lyons
and her mother, Linda Klein,
who worked hard to make
the banquet unfold smoothly.
Varsity head coach Steve
Cavallaro, who finished his
first season at VHS with a
record of 15-12, claimed the
program is heading in the
right direction.
"It's the first winning sea-
son at Venice since 1998," said
the Maine native. "We laid
down the foundation to
rewrite the history of Venice
basketball. It took a total com-


mitment, .a new work ethic.
There was a new coach and
new ideas."
Winning the prestigious
Most Valuable Player Award
was senior guard George
Stritz Jr. He also won the
Defense Award.
The Offense Award went
to senior swing man Kalen
Lyons. Senior forward Billy
Mehserle captured two
awards Sixth Man and
Academic. The Most Im-
proved Award went to senior
guard Ariel Bonilla. The
Coaches Award was garnered
by senior center Ilya Vasi-
levskiy. The Rookie of the
Year was freshman guard
Kyle Jutras. Three-Year Vars-
ity Awards went to Bonilla
andVasilevskiy.
Assistant coaches Jim Davis
and Dave Shacklett were also
in attendance.


He leads the Falcons with an
ERA of 3.60. In 20 innings,
the 6-2 Tilka has allowed 21
hits, just seven walks and has
fanned 21.
"Andrew has an above
average curve, a good
change-up and he keeps his
fast ball low so they don't hit it
far," Reilly said.
Daytona has just seven
pitchers on the roster. There
are' four starters and three
relievers.
Tilka battled through a lit-
tle adversity earlier this sea-
son.
"He pitched 3 1/2 innings
in a game early in the year,"
Reilly said. "He had a bruise
on his elbow. We shut him
down two weeks. He came
back and has been fine ever
since."

Former VHS standout A.J..
Hiner is the starting shortstop
at St. Petersburg College. He
sprained his wrist Friday and
was scratched Saturday at
Polk.
St. Pete will play Manatee
this Friday and Saturday.
They play in St. Pete Friday


and in Bra-
denton Sat-
urday. Hiner
should be
back in .the
lineup.

Matt Kin-
dell got off to
a hot start Tilka
swinging the
bat for Hillsborough Com-
munity College. The big out-
fielder had a grand slam
home run early in the season.
Kindell has been in a bit
of a slump lately but is
looking to battle his way out
for a big stretch run.
*
Former Venice High slug-
ger Steve Strausbaugh has
been named the South Con-
ference's Player of the Week.
"Stackhouse" is now a sopho-
more at Western Carolina

The, granddaddy of Venice
beach communities is Gold-
en Beach, which also boasts.
the widest beach easement of
the three communities on the
island of Venice, which have
deeded beach access.
Private beach access is a
lure for potential homeown-
ers, giving residents in the
beach communities a private
entrance to the-Venice Beach
and, in the case of Golden
Beach and its neighbor to the
south, Gulf Shores, tropically
landscaped picnic areas as
well. For those people who
want access but do not want
to live directly on the beach
for whatever reason, private
beach access confers all the


benefits of living at the beach
without anything that might
be considered a downside,
such as the dampness and
potential for flooding in a
severe storm.
At 60-feet, the Golden
Beach easement is the widest,
more than double the width of
the 25-foot wide Gulf Shores
Southern easement and far
wider than its northern access,
which is nothing but a narrow
path to the beach, the normal
type of beach most people
enjoy along the gulf coast,
when they live in a beach com-
munity.
Golden Beach was devel-
oped by the AERO Corp-
oration, which granted the
deed to Golden Beach home-
owners in 1959. The space-
age sounding name was


Tile floors provide a clean and cool background to dark wood

home at 416 Spadaro.


derived from the first names
of company principals
Anthony Spadaro (A), Edward
Darling (E), Robert Baynard
(R) and Orlando Mahon (0).
Wasting nothing, the AERO
founders used their last
names for four streets leading
from Harbor Drive to Golden
Beach Boulevard.
But Golden Beach is bigger
than that, extending south
from Gulf Street to Golden
Beach Drive, from Harbor
Drive on the east to Flamingo
Drive and Golden Beach
Boulevard to the west and
east of Harbor Drive, three
streets off Coral Street (Serata,
Cincy and Roberts streets)
plus a short section of Firenze
Avenue.
Residents of those streets
are eligible to join the Golden
Beach Associates, which
maintains the easement and
its facilities. Members receive
a regular newsletter, ease-
ment parking permits, guest
passes, the ability to make
reservations to use the gazebo
and grill facilities, post notices
on the bulletin board and
receive invitations to sunset
gatherings and other special
events designed for the
homeowner members and
their guests.
Homes in the Golden
Beach area are representative
of most every era in the city's
history, with most dating to
the 1960s and later. Three cur-
rently on the market and
recently listed with Golden
Beach resident and Realtor
Lueanne Wood, who con-


tribute information for this
article, were built in 1969,
1975 and 1993.
The 1969-era home at 501
Everglades is a Florida ranch-
style classic with a split bed-
room plan, especially large
heated pool and attached
two-car garage. It has some
jalousie windows, and en-
trance courtyard and several
upgrades, which have been
added over the years, includ-
ing the pool's automatic
cleaner and pool deck. It has
three bedrooms and two full
bathrooms. Decorator cane
and rattan furniture plus a
tropical peach color scheme
give the interior the look of a
brand-new home, as do the
multi-paned sliding glass
window walls that separate
the pool from the now
enclosed lanai. When the


house was built that space
would have been called a
Florida room and was likely
enclosed with jalousie win-
dows.
The tropically landscaped
yard is fenced and features
outdoor lighting. There also is
an outdoor shower.
Its list price is $598,000,
and it is just one-quarter
block from the beach.
The 1975-built home at
416 Spadaro is a three-bed-
room, two-bath split-plan
home that has been totally
redone. Both the entry court-
yard and the interior have
been tiled and the kitchen has
been completely redone from
cabinets to granite counters..

Pine View students"'B.I.G. idea is a success

BY MICHELLE MILLER "
CORRESPONDENT 1L K.


My fourth-grade class at
Pine View School recently had
an idea about bridging
the inter-generational gap
through outreach to a local
retirement home.
The class of 20 fourth-
graders visited The Fountains
in Sarasota March 9 to build a
relationship with their B.I.G.
buddies. Students were
paired and partnered with
one resident. The students
came equipped with a poem
about themselves, and a list of
interview questions to ask
their new friend.
The information will be
used by the students to write a
poem about their new buddy
to present at their next visit
May 11.
Thanks to a grant awarded
by the Southern Poverty Law
Center's Teaching Tolerance
Grant Program, my class was
able to design their own T-
shirts to wear to the meetings,
purchase a digital camera and
portable printer to provide
the residents \with certificates
and pictures on the day of the
0isit. We were also able to pur-
chase various books that
highlighted positive relation-
ships between inter-genera-
tional friends.
These new friends shared
many personal experiences
with the students about the
Great Depression, World War
I, times of segregation, and
other things the students had
only read about in books.
My class and the parents
involved in the program can-
not wait to return in May.
B.I.G. is an idea that really
paid off. ,

Young filmmaker showcase


finalists announced


STAFF REPORT


New Gate School and the
Sarasota Film Festival have
announced that six finalists
have been selected for the
second annual Young Film-
makers Showcase.
Out of approximately 20
submissions, the selected fi-
nalists were Bryce Bochan,
Hali Gardella and Erika Sny-
der from Booker High School;
Nicole Bucchino from Lake-
wood Ranch High School;
Datev Gallagher from New
Gate School; and Vincent
Dale from Pine View.
"On behalf of the SFF and
New Gate School, We want to
congratulate all of the stu-
dents who participated in this
year's Young Filmmakers
Showcase," said Paul Wenn-
inger, head of school for New
Gate and presenting sponsor
for the event.
"The criteria for selection
this year included the sub-
mission of a screenplay, chal-
lenging filmmakers to think
more deeply about their fin-
ished product. I'm sure that
the selection of the finalists
was a very difficult choice. We
hope every participant will
feel like a winner."
. The entries were submit-
ted from students in grades
nine-12 throughout the Sara-


sota/Manatee area. Length of
films selected was varied,
with a limit of up to fifteen
minutes.
Finalists will have their
films shown as part of the
2006 Sarasota Film Festival at
one of the Hollywood 20 the-
aters Sunday, April 2, at 1 p.m.
Judges who are profession-
als in the film and entertain-
ment field will be in atten-
dance. A Youth Awards Re-
ception will follow at the
Metro Caf6 at 2:30 p.m.,
where the winners will be
announced.
As part of their sponsor-
ship, New Gate School is
donating $2,000 in prize
money.
The grand prize is ,a $1,000

ally, two $500 prizes will be

"The Film Festival is very
pleased to team up with New
Gate School for the second
consecutive year and pro-
mote the talents of area stu-
dents with the Young Film-
makers Showcase," said Hans
Wohlgefahrt, director of out-


reach and education for the
SFE "This year's quality of
films affirms the importance
of continuing to support this
unique and creative endeav-
or. The enthusiasm and ex-
citement of the students is
very compelling. Creating a
film starts with an idea, that
has to be written into a script,
cast, acted and directed, and
finally edited into the final
product. The work of all the
students was extraordinary,
We salute them all and look
forward to April 2, when we
will see the finalists on the big
screen."
The Young Filmmakers
Showcase was started in 2005
through a sponsorship from
New Gate School.
Students in Sarasota and

HUMOR COLUMNIST

This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished March 7, 1999.

I was surprised to learn
that there are people in
Miami who practice sword-
fighting. I never thought of
Miami as a sword kind of,
town. Down here, we like to
brandish our weapons at
other motorists from inside
our cars, which would be
risky with a sword:
FIRST MOTORIST (honk-'
ing): Watch where you're
going!
SECOND MOTORIST: Oh
YEAH? (He brandishes his
sword.)
FIRST MOTORIST (flee-
ing): Yikes!
SECOND MOTORIST: I
showed him! (To his children
in the back seat:) Kids, could
you look on the floor and see
if you can find Daddy's ear?
- But it turns out that Miami
does have practicing sword-
fighters. They belong to the
Renaissance Historical So-
ciety of Florida, a group of
-people who wear costumes
and pretend they're living
during the Renaissance. The

Considered one of the
most popular farces when it
Swas first written by Pierre
vVeber and Maurice Henne-
mquir in 1895, 'Anything to
Declare?" has been translated
and adapted by Greg Learning
iwho has infused it with a
slightly more modern appeal.
Pierre Hennequin was one of
the strong influences on
,George Feydeau ('A Flea in
SHer Ear").
Learning, whose transla-
tion/adaptation of 'A Flea in
Her Ear" was nominated in
2002 for Best New Play by the
Dallas Theatre Critics Asso-
ciation, is the new director of
the FSU Asolo Conservatory
as well as associate artistic
director of the Asolo Theatre
Company.
This is his first directing
"project for the Asolo's main-
stage.
Continuing in rotating
repertory through April 27,
'Anything to Declare?" is a
highly amusing sex farce set
in Paris, France,
The cast features Asolo res-
ident actors Bradford Wallace,
Carolyn Michael, James
Clarke and David Breitbarth;
and brings back professional
guest artist Richard B. Wat-
son, who wowed audiences in
the 2004-2005 season as
Sherlock Holmes in "Sherlock
Holmes and The West End
Horror."
Scenic design is by the


historical period that started
in the 15th century at approx-
imately 3:30 p.m. when
humanity, after centuries of
being cooped up in the Dark
Ages, finally stumbled out
into the light and got a whiff
of its own armpits and said,
"Whoa! Time to invent co-
logne!"
This was followed by
tremendous advances in sci-
ence, philosophy, literature
and paintings of naked
women.
On a recent Sunday after-
noon, I watched members of
the Renaissance Historical
Society rehearse for a public
performance at an upcoming
Renaissance festival. They
were leaping around, swing-
ing large, realistic swords at
each other and yelling
Renaissance insults such as
- this is an actual insult they
yelled "You snotmuffin!"
When they were done, I
talked to two of the organiz-
ers, Roger Zollo and Kyle
Mathews, about the Ren-
aissance movement, which
involves groups and festivals
all over the country.
"We try to be as period as
possible," said Zollo.
"Although we do bathe,"
noted Mathews.
"Right," agreed Zollo. "We
don't want to smell Renais-
sance."
The re-enacters wear
authentic costumes, which
means the men wear tights.
(And before I hear any snick-
ering from you guys out there
who think men look silly in
tights, I have two words for
you: "golf pants.") The Ren-
aissance men also wear cod-
pieces, which are pieces of
cloth that cover up a man's,
um, codpiece area. Zollo and
Mathews told me that some


renowned artist Steven Rubin
..and the period costume de-
sign is by Michele Macadaeg.
Ticket prices for the play
are $16-$48, depending on
the performance day and
time, with special discounts
for students, seniors, and
groups of 10 or more.

****** *
In case you missed this bit
in last week's column, I think
it deserves repeating.
Soon after Hurricane Ka-
trina did its best to destroy
southern Louisiana and Mis-
sissippi, Venice resident Gail
Martin began a campaign to
send books to Slidell High
School in Slidell, La.
The school was destroyed
and all its library and text


guys make their own cod-
pieces and personalize them:
One guy made a fuzzy red
codpiece that squeaked if you
squeezed it. (My feeling about
that is: If. you have a squeak-
ing codpiece, you had better
have a really big sword.)
The Renaissance people
also spend a lot of time learn-.
ing authentic sword-fighting
techniques. I have an interest
in this topic dating back to
1964, when my friend Lanny
Watts talked me into joining
the Pleasantville High School
fencing club. This was a seri-
ous competitive club, but
Lanny and I frankly did not
have the correct attitude, a
fact that became clear when it
came time to form into pairs
and practice a basic fencing
technique.
Lanny was paired against
one of the veteran club mem-
bers, who had assumed his
fighting stance, holding his
fencing sword in the ready
position; suddenly Lanny ran
from the room, only to return
a moment later holding: a
trombone. Even though I was
lying on the floor and trying
not to wet my pants, I still
have a vivid motion picture in
my mind of the scene that fol-
lowed: Lanny charging for-
ward, blowing into the trom-
bone and thrusting boldly
with the sliding part, as his
opponent retreated in confu-
sion and yes fear. Lanny
and I were immediately
kicked out of the fencing club.
But I think they knew who
won.
Anyway, my main question
about sword-fighting tech-
nique is this: How come,
when you see a sword fight in
the movies, where two guys
are doing everything they can
to kill each other, and one of


books lost.
She has already sent sever-
al loads of good new books
and the Salvation Army of
Venice and others have
helped by carrying books to
Slidell with other supplies
whenever a truck has been
headed that way.
The people of Venice,
Publix, Walgreens, the Friends
of the Venice Public Library,
its employees, Friends presi-
dent Ken Rodriguez and oth-
ers have contributed books
and much-needed office sup-
plies.
They contributed so much
that Martin was left with 18
boxes in search of the ship-
ping costs, which were esti-
mated to be in excess of $200
at the very least. '
Unfortunately, this time
the shippers are scarce so

them finally gets the upper
hand and has his sword point
pressed against his enemy's
neck, instead of killing him -
which he has been trying
hard to do for 10 minutes -
HE MAKES A SPEECH, usual-
ly involving the word "varlet"?
Because while he's yakking,
the other guy ALWAYS gets
away.
I asked Zollo and Mathews
why movie sword-fighters did
this, and they answered,
"Theatrics." They also said
they rarely kill people in their
performances.
"We try to show respect for
life," said Mathews.
"Plus," said Zollo, "it's a
pain in the butt to carry the
bodies away."
Thus we see that the
Renaissance movement rep-
resents positive historic val-
ues. This is heartening be-
cause many of its members,
at least in the group I saw, are
young people. So the next
time you find yourself think-
ing that today's youth are
nothing but mindless, giant-
pant-wearing, tattoo-getting,
MTV-clone snotmuffins
whose definition of "ancient"
is "before Ginger left the Spice
Girls," remember that there
ARE young people who are
interested in preserving, and
promoting, a vital part of
humanity's cultural heritage.
And while you're remember-
ing that, bear in mind that
"Varlet and the Squeaking
Codpieces" would be an
excellent name for a rock
band.

Thanks to Martin and

Thank you one and all.

estate statistics
As of the end of February,
there were 97 listings on the
island of Venice, with prices
ranging from a low of
$299,000 for a two-bedroom,
one-bath home in Bayshore
Estates to $3,970,000 for a
four-bedroom, three-and-
one-half bath home on
Hunter Drive iri the Gulf
Manor neighborhood just
north of Golden Beach.
Venice MLS active-inventory


information for the 12-
month period ending Feb. 22
showed 1,342 listings (up
from 694 a year earlier) in the
greater Venice area with a
median price of $389,000 (up
from a median price of
$299,900 a year earlier). The
same study showed a $86,286
decrease in the average price
of residential property for the
time period, although that
number could simply be: a
reflection of there being one
less multi-million dollar list-
ing to skew the numbers. The
median price is a better indi-
cator because it represents
the midpoint of all the sales
prices as opposed to an aver-
age, which is too easily
bumped one way or another
by a few houses priced either
very low or very high. For
example, if one new $20 mil-
lion house on Casey Key were
added to the mix, the average
price would jump by nearly
$270,000, while the median
price would barely move at all
(based on 1,342 listings).

nomics students.

Aging and sliding-scale race results


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

For two weeks I've been
struttin' around town, iith
my chest puffed out, remind-
ing people I'm just as fast a
runner as I was at 18.
The first half dozen times
people heard this, they were
nice. and even excited for me.
Now they just want' me to
shut up about running the
Sarasota Marathon in 3
hours, 53 minutes.
Admittedly, I have been
blowing my horn quite a bit.
Equaling my finish from 15
years ago before abandon-
ing my running shoes for a
decade filled with pizzas and


beers is something that
seemed impossible to
accomplish.
Now that my unobtainable
goal has been obtained, the
question pops up, "How fast
do you want to go?"
Racing Father Time
Many studies suggest dis-
tance runners peak in their
mid-30s, regardless of his or
her training regimen.
There is a story inside of
the April edition of Runner's
World magazine that details
this process and places a
numerical value on how
much a person will slow
down with age.
Writer Amby Burfoot
writes in his column that
studies show race times will
slow down 3-6 percent per
decade for runners in their
30s and 40s. That amount
jumps to around 10 percent
in his or her 50s and 60s, and
then 15 percent in the 70s.
Burfoot also cites Yale
University economics profes-
sor and marathoner Ray Fair's
formula to calculate slow-


down factors. According to
Fair's system, a person starts
slowing down after 35 years
old.
Pretend that your best
half-marathon time is 1 hour,
30 minutes at 35 years old.
That time would slow to 1
hour, 45 minutes at 55 years
old (multiply 90 minutes by
1.175).
It's all speculation
The article, "How Long
Can You Keep Up With Your
Past?", should be required
reading for runners bemoan-
ing how slow they've gotten
(not-so-subtle hint directed
at an unnamed member of
the Venice Runners Group).
Expecting to run like you
did 'at 35, years old when
you're 55, 60 or older is pretty
silly. Perhaps these charts will
help older runners accept
their slowing race results.
However, do not expect
any sympathy from me for
runners 50 or older com-
plaining about ONLY running
a half-marathon in 1 hour, 50
minutes. Times like that still


put runners in the top 30 per-
cent of nearly every road race
I've ever attended.
Of course, all these num-
bers are speculative numbers
based on aging alone.
Injuries, training and diet also
have a significant impact on
race results.
Quite a few people set their
personal bests in their 40s
when they're supposed to be
slowing down. These runners
are usually the ones who
started later, missing out on
their 20s and 30s in favor of
work and family, and finally
have the time for dedicated
training (at least that's what
I've seen in Venice).
As for me, it looks as if
there's another 5-7 years in
these legs to set that "best
time ever" before Father Time
catches up with me.

COURTESY PHOTO
In its first year, the Sarasota Marathon and Half-
Marathon raised $50,000 for Sarasota YMCA.
Marathon organizer and founder Lisette Riveron pre-
sented the check last week to Jim Purdy, executive
vice president of the YMCA. The YMCA was the sole
beneficiary of the Albritton Fruit Sarasota Marathon
Grouper Run, which was held March 5. More than
1,600 runners took part in the 26.2-mile marathon or
13.1-mile half-marathon. The proceeds were generat-
ed by runner registration costs. "An event like this is a
benefit to the entire community. It promotes the
healthy lifestyle we have here in Sarasota, and the
YMCA is proud to be a part of i.t," Purdy said.


FITNESS BRIEFS


April Pool's Day
April Pool's Day is a nation-
al annual educational initia-
tive to boost awareness of the
importance of water safety
among children and families.
Fun-filled activities at Ven-
ice YMCA include:
Presentation of sub-
merged vehicle escape by
Cape Coral Fire Department.
U.S. Army Corps teaches
children how to, wear a life
jacket, and a free boat ride for
kids.
Water rescue display by
city of Venice rescue workers
and lifeguard rescue demon-
strations.
Learn about skin and eye
sun protection.
Free goody bags to first
250 participants.
Free hot dogs and drinks.
The goal of the event is to
educate and spread aware-
ness of pool safety.
Drowning is the second
leading cause of unintention-
al death for children 1-14
years old. More than 80 per-
cent of drowning of children 4
years old or younger occurs in
residential pools, and approx-
imately 75 percent of drown-
ing occurs because of a lapse
of parental supervision.
The event will be at the
Venice YMCA, 701 Center

Former county staff

attorney's advice ignored


Eeew, shrimp!


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
A Sarasota County staff
attorney warned in 1997 that
the U.S. Fair Housing Act pro-
hibits local governments
from adopting codes that dis-
criminate against mentally ill,
addicted and poor residents
who live in homes of six or
fewer unrelated people. His
advice apparently went un-
heeded.
In 2004, county building
and zoning officials inexplica-
bly attempted to get around
the federal law by limiting
such homes to no more than
four unrelated residents and
requiring at least 1,000 feet of
separation between them.
The Pelican Press has ob-
tained copies of the 1997 legal
advisory letter and a 2004
county staff report that
describe how portions of state
statutes and local codes were
selectively interpreted to jus-
tify substantive policy chang-
es in the politically sensitive
issue of housing for the poor
and afflicted.
Those changes outlined in
the 2004 report by Building
Official Paul Radauskas and
Zoning Administrator Mary
Beth Humphreys with the
approval of Assistant County
Attorney Gary Oldehoff- are
now the subject of a U.S.
Justice Department discrimi-
nation case against the coun-
ty.
On Dec. 15, 2005, the fed-
eral law enforcement agency
announced the county would
be charged in a lawsuit unless
an out-of-court consent de-
cree is signed that includes a
county admission of guilt,
apologies, fines and code
changes that conform with
federal law.
The 1997 warning letter
that recognized federal au-
thority in housing decisions
was written by former As-
sistant County Attorney
Charles D. Bailey III to Warm
Mineral Springs Civic Asso-
ciation President Eva Curtis. It
explained why homes with six
or fewer unrelated residents
are protected by federal law.
"Under the. Fair Housing
Act," Bailey wrote, "the coun-
ty must be careful not to


impose distance or locational
requirements for these types
of homes which are not also
imposed upon other single-
family residences." The letter
referenced residents who are
recovering alcoholics and
drug addicts.
"Accordingly," Bailey's let-
ter concluded, "based upon
the federal statutes and the
county's regulations, Sarasota
County is not in a position to
enact regulations for manda-

homes you have described."
It was copied to then Com-
mission Chair Bob Anderson.
The homes described by
Curtis are clustered in a com-
plex known as Tammi House
located at the dead end of
Sevilla Street. They are cur-
rently owned and operated
for unrelated residents by a
nonprofit partnership that
includes Coastal Recovery
and Renaissance Manor.
Almost three months have
passed since the Sarasota
County Attorney's office re-
ceived its copy of warning let-
ter from the Justice Depart-
ment letter and, with the
threat of an embarrassing
lawsuit pending, a decision
has tentatively been made to
negotiate rather than fight.
County Attorney Steve
DeMarsh has informed the
county commission that a
Washington, D.C., law firm
with Fair Housing Act exper-
tise will be employed to con-
fer with Justice Department
lawyers and try to avert litiga-
tion over the civil rights of
Tammi House residents.
In a parallel effort to head
off litigation, Deputy County
Administrator Susan Scott
flew with Oldehoff to Wash-
ington for a face-to-face
meeting on Wednesday with
Justice Department officials
who are directly involved in
the Tammi House case.
The county's legal dilem-
ma began to unfold on July 7,
2004, when Radauskas and
Humphreys concluded that
the Tammi House complex
fits the state's criteria for

Easter Seals Southwest Florida opens Children's Therapy Center


STAFF REPORT


Easter Seals Southwest
Florida announces the open-
ing of their new Children's
Therapy Center in Sarasota
(2415 University Parkway,
Building 3, Suite 218, Sara-
sota).
This unique therapeutic
play center is staffed by a
team of certified, licensed
speech-language, occupa-
tional, physical and develop-
mental therapists who pro-
vide children with disabilities
and their families the oppor-
tunity to connect and explore
healing through fun interac-
tion.
It is one of only a'handful
of therapy centers in South-
west Florida devoted solely to
providing therapy services to
infants, toddlers and school-
age children.
The Easter Seals Children's
Therapy Center uses a multi-
disciplinary approach to en-


gage families in their thera-
peutic journey to treat the
whole child in an enjoyable,
healing environment where
children learn and develop
through play. Programs en-
gage families to participate in
child-centered therapies that
emphasize the influential role
of the family in the child's
development and success.
Infants and toddlers at risk
for developmental delay or
who have multiple disabilities
benefit from the knowledge
and expertise of certified,
licensed specialists in the
areas of speech-language, oc-
cupational, physical and
developmental therapy.
The Children's Therapy
Center maximizes positive
educational and life interac-
tion through early diagnostic
and therapy services.
These services and valu-
able support encourages and
empowers families to actively
engage in their child's learn-


ing and development at the
center and in the home.
Families may obtain services
from the Children's Therapy
Center with or without direct
referral from physicians,
health professionals or com-
munity agencies. For more
information about the Easter
Seals Children's Therapy Cen-
ter at University Health Park,
call 359-9555.
Green standards
The new facility, built by
architect Michael Carlson, a
specialist in building "green,"
and contractor W.G. Mills,
also incorporates green
building principles and nat-
ural day lighting to provide
the. healthiest, safest indoor
environment for the well-
being of its children, their
families and staff.
Features that improve the
Indoor Environmental Qual-
ity (IEQ) of the space such as
using Wood stalk cabinetry,


low VOC adhesives, and no
VOC paints help to reduce the
amount of chemicals in the
materials and the air.
Recycled and rapidly re-
newable materials like In-
terface carpet tile and Forbo
Linoleum also help in creat-
ing a healthier indoor envi-
ronment.
About Easter Seals
Southwest Florida
Celebrating its 60th year of
service, Easter Seals South-
west Florida has been helping
children, youth and adults
with disabilities gain greater
independence since 1946.
Its primary services -
medical rehabilitation (physi-
cal, occupational and
speech/language therapies),
inclusive child care, and chil-
dren's respite care services -
benefit more than 1,000 chil-
dren, youth and adults with
disabilities and their families
each year.

ADVICE from Page 9B


derly, frail, disabled and
handicapped people are
allowed to live.
According to their report,
Florida Statutes 394 and 419
indicate "a nondangerous
mentally ill person" is eligible
to live in a community resi-
dential home, but "such
homes shall not be located
within a radius of 1,000 feet"
of one another without
approval of a local govern-
ment.


The 1,000-foot separation
conclusion appears to con-
flict with Bailey's 1997 letter,
which advises "the county
must be careful not to impose
distance or locational re-
quirements for these types of
homes which are not also
imposed upon other single
family residences."
While Bailey's letter didn't
go into a lengthy explanation
of the Fair Housing Act, it
implied that if the county


attempted to adopt or en-
force "distance or locational
requirements" on supportive
housing it could be found in
violation of the federal law.
In their 2004 report circu-
lated to commissioners,
Radauskas and Humphreys
contended both state law and
"the county zoning ordinance
lead us to determine" that the
Sevilla Street houses known
as Tammi House "are and will
be operated as community


residential homes."
They concluded: "These
findings and determinations
were discussed with Assistant
County Attorney Gary Olde-
hoff, and he agreed with
them. Both state statutes and
the Sarasota County Zoning
Code do not permit such
houses to operate within
1,000 feet of one another."
On July 21, 2004, Radaus-
kas and Humphreys followed
up their report to the com-


mission with a letter to
Tammi House co-owner Scott
Eller that stated the complex
of six single-family homes
was in violation of state law
and local codes. It ordered
him to' operate only one of
them.
Andrea J. Steinacker, a
Justice Department attorney
in Washington, D.C., was
assigned to investigate the
Tammi House case in early
2005, after it was referred over


by the Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development
in late 2004. She visited Warm
Mineral Springs last June.
Lawyers representing
Tammi House are seeking
$1.5 million from the county
to recover lost operating rev-
enue from grants that were
denied, $10,000 for leach of
four residents, and $130,000
in legal fees. A civil penalty
could drive the total to' more
than $2 million.

The
sciatic nerve
-(the largest nerve
Iin the body) branches from the base
Tof the spinal cord (where it is
attached) to form the motor and
Sitc sensory nerves of the legs and feet.
Sciatica develops when a bulging spinal disc
impinges the nerve. The result is excruciating
pain that radiates to the buttocks and down the
path of the nerve at the back of the leg. Until
fairly recently, conventional wisdom held that
bed rest could benefit patients with sciatica.
However, just as it has been found that prolonged
bed rest does not help alleviate lower back pain,
research shows that bed rest does not help sciatica
either. In fact, gentle movement has been found to
be a better choice.
Sciatica affects about five percent of adults in the
SIUnited States and is one of the most common causes
a jof chronic disability.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER
we will always discuss with you optimum chiropractic
healthcare and other choices if you desire, as well as

) P.S. Piriformis syndrome, a condition in which
the piriformis muscle irritates the sciatic nerve,
can mimic symptoms similar to those associated

PHOTO COURTESY OF VENICE ARCHIVES AND AREA HISTORICAL COLLECTION
The Venice Archives and Area Historical Collection has prepared a display on the Venice Army Air Base. The collection will be on display through November. The exhibit consists of early
photographs, artifacts and information of the Venice Army Air Base that was in operation from 1942 to 1945. During its operation, some 22,000 men were trained at the base, with facili-
ties to accommodate up to 6,000. This included trainees as well as hundreds of base personnel and civilian maintenance workers, doctors and nurses, food service people, teachers,
lawyers, military police, chaplains, entertainers and even a K-9 guard dog unit. An average of 300 civilian employees were required to keep the air field functioning smoothly. The
Archives, located in the historic Triangle Inn building, is located at 351 S. Nassau St., and is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, January through May; and Monday
and Wednesday, June through December.

Acoustic Alchemy performs at Van Wezel


STAFF REPORT

Acoustic Alchemy featur-
ing Terry Disley with special
guest Eric Darius takes the
stage at the Van Wezel
PerformingArts Hall at 8 p.m.,
Friday, May 26.
Tickets are $35 and $40.
and go on sale at.9 a.m. at the
Van Wezel box office.
Acoustic Alchemys Amer-
ican/English is just such a
journey. It is an appropriate
one, coming from a band
entering its 20th anniversary
year, who trans-Atlantic
membership and wide-rang-
ing influences make it a con-
duit for a myriad of sounds
and textures.
If the band has been enter-
tained by the sounds of jazzy
improvisation, late night
dancing in a far away locale,
or Caribbean grooves, those
experiences. might well seep
into a new Acoustic Alchemy
composition.
American/English's open-
ing track, The Crossing, in-
vites the listener to begin the
voyage. With its wide, sprawl-
ing-melody and uncluttered,
spacious feel, the song tells an
instrumental tale of unchart-
ed territories waiting to be
discovered and unknown
adventures that might be
right around the corner.
"It is not about a literal
journey," explains guitarist
Miles Gilderdale, "but rather.
about whatever journey the-
listener might dream of
embarking upon."
Gilderdale is joined on
American/English by his gui-
tar partner and founding
member Greg Carmichael,
bassist Frank Felix, drummer
Greg Grairingei, and keyboard
player Fred White, the five
musicians that make up
Alchemy's touring band. They
have also got wonderful per-
formances from their saxo-
phonists of choice Eddie M
and Snake Davis.
Joining them are In-
cognito's horn section, key-
board wiz Neil Cowley and on
one track, original drummer
Bert Smaak Production
chores on the project were
largely handled by Richard


Bull, who produced 'the
band's popular AART (2001)
and The Beautiful Game
(2000) releases..
"Our last album (2003's
Radio Contact) was a- bit of a
step backwards," says band
manager Stewart Coxhead.
"The Beautiful Game and
AART both took the music in
very different directions than
we had explored in the past,
but for Radio Contact we
stepped back a bit ,and did
something more familiar. On
American/English we real-
ized that the music had to
move forward, so the band
took some chances and tried
some new sounds and ideas."
However, rather than 'in-
dulging in the piano, key-
board, and horn lines that
played prominently in The
Beautiful Game and AART,
American/English finds the
band using those instru-
ments as textural accompani-
ments, setting up dramatic
surroundings for the dual
nylon and steel string guitars
that have defined Acoustic
Alchemy since the band's
inception two decades ago.
"Our signature is two gui-
tars, but from there we have
jazz tracks, reggae tracks,
salsa tracks, and all forms of
rock and pop," says
Gilderdale. "We tend to be a
musical travelogue, repre-
senting a wide range of influ-
ences, people, and occur-
rences that inform our musi-
cal and personal lives."
The Talented Eric Darius
will be the opening act for
Acoustic Alchemy.
Eric Darius, also known as
the "Smooth Breeze," was
born in Livingston, N.J., Dec.
3,1982.
Born into a musical family
(his father plays the bass, his
mother sings, his older broth-
er plays the drums and trum-
pet, and his younger sister
sings), Eric first expressed his
interest in playing the saxo-
phone at the age of 10, when
he first heard Nolan Sheritz
play the saxophone at his
church.
Inspired by his soulful
playing, Eric started taking
lessons with Nolan several'


weeks later.
Several months afterward,
he then began studying with
Melissa Marko, who was a
student at Hillsborough
Community College at that
time.
He then began performing
at the age of 11 with Sonny
LaRosa and America's
Youngest Jazz Band, which
later performed at the presti-
gious Montreaux Jazz Festival
in Switzerland in 1995. Eric
attended Blake High School
of the Performing Arts in
Tampa, Florida, where he was
a member of the Blake Jazz
'Ensemble, Jazz Combo, Wind
Ensemble, Marching Band,
basketball team, soccer team,
and National Honors Society,
in which he graduated with a
5.2 grade point average. His
musical influences range
from artists like John Col-
trane, Cannonball Adderly,
and Charlie Parker, to today's
artists such as Kirk Whalum,
Kenny Garrett, Michael
Brecker, Branford Marsalis,
and the late Grover Wash-
ington Jr.
In 1999, Eric and the Blake
Jazz Ensemble were selected
to perform at the Essentially
Ellington Festival in NewYork
City, where they placed fourth
out of the top twenty jazz
bands in the United States.
While in New York, he got the
privilege to play with Wynton
Marsalis and Paquito
D'Rivera in a jam session.
Also, in 2000, Eric and the
Blake Jazz Combo toured and
performed in Japan as part of
Florida's Cultural Exchange
Programs.
Throughout the years, he
has received numerous indi-
vidual honors and awards.
Also, he has performed
with the following notable
artists: Richard Elliot, Ed
Calle, Richard Smith, Slide
Hampton, Buster Cooper,
John Lamb, and many others.
In addition to this, Eric has
had the opportunity to meet
several renowned artists,
such as, Kirk Whalum, Gerald
Albright, Dave Koz, Peter
White, Jeff Lorber, Rick Braun, ,,
Najee, Warren Hill, David
Benoit, Nelson Rangell,.

fashion event

and Women's

Resource Center

STAFF REPORT

The high fashion, unscript-
ed drama, slick choreography,
tempting fare, creative cock-
tails and gorgeous models that
all combine to create The
Colony's annual Still Life in
Motion fashion show will once
again take center stage on
Thursday, May 4 from 6:30 to
10 p.m.
A benefit for the Safe Place
and Rape Crisis Center (SPAR-
CC) of Sarasota and the
Women's Resource Center of
Sarasota County, this fashion-
able event highlights the sea-
son's greatest trends from the
most creative designers of
women's and men's clothing
and accessories which are fea-
tured in Le Tennique, The
Colony's designer boutique.
Borrowing elements of a
performance art piece as well
as the more stylized compo-
nents of a runway show, Still
Life in Motion turns a tradi-
tional fashion presentation
into renegade theater. This
year's show, "In Living Color,"
will begin in classic black and
white before exploding into
full, brilliant color, showcasing
the fashions of design houses
such as Luisa Cerano, Elie
Tahari, Etro, Escada Sport, Axis,
Tommy Bahama, Alexander
Julian, Missoni, Nicole Miller
and more. The event overtakes
the Monkey Room Patio, which
becomes a fusion of runway
style and beachside elegance
set against the backdrop of a
spectacular Gulf of Mexico
sunset.
Tickets for Still Life in
Motion are $60 per person.
Guests are encouraged to bring
quality clothing for donation to
The Women's Resource Center
of Sarasota County's Encore &
More Shop. For more informa-
tion or advance reservations,
please call Le Tennique at The
Colony at- 383-7576, or visit

JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR COLUMNIST

Soon it will be that time of
year when spring houseclean-
ing is on the minds of most
women around the world. A
time when the curtains from
every window are taken down,
washed, starched, ironed and
reinstalled. A time when any-
thing, and everything, gets
scrubbed and rubbed to
remove the long winter's dust,
dirt and grime. And, I suppose
it wouldn't be such a bad idea if
only they, the women, espe-
cially my wife, would not ask
for masculine help. I mean,
come on don't they think
we, the men of the world, have
enough worries with port
security, the war in Iraq, the
upcoming hurricane season,
border patrol and the impend-
ing shortage of European


hops, without which, beer is
just not the same, without.
worrying over a couple of dust
bunnies under the bed? Geeze!
This year, however, I have
vowed to help as much as pos-
sible. Actually, the vowing was-
n't my choice, but rather than
treat multiple contusions that I
no doubt would incur, I simply
acquiesced. I agreed to do
whatever it takes to ease the
pangs and labors of spring
cleaning that might involve a'
tiny bit of work to get the job
done. In fact, to help out, I
bought a fairly new eight track
tape of Jimmy Dean singing
"Sixteen Tons" at a local garage
sale. I probably shouldn't have
cranked up the volume as I
did, as the very nice policeman
who was pounding on my
front door told me he would
shoot me if I didn't turn it
down. Some people have no
appreciation for great music.
But, I persevered and in
fact, thought I looked rather
cute dancing around the living
room with the vacuum clean-
er, much like Mrs. Doubtfire in
that Robin Williams movie. It
would have been better, how-
ever, had the policeman not
confiscated my eight track. I
really missed Jimmy bellowing
out the ballad of "Big John."

And, I really thought she, my
wife, would appreciate my
effort of good will and that, just
possibly, it would get me off
the hook. But, to my surprise, it
did not.
My idea of spring house
cleaning was to rid my house
of clutter and involved taking
everything in the garage that I
haven't used in the past five
years and selling it in a garage
sale. Now, if you haven't been
through your garage lately, you
might be surprised to find
things you thought were long
gone- For instance, I found
something resembling a thing
I lost a long time ago. I have no
idea what it is, but I do remem-
ber thinking that one day it
might come in handy. I also
know there are enough things
in my garage to have several
garage sales with a truck load
of leftovers. Unfortunately, I
learned that on any given
weekend, there are approxi-
mately 75,000 garage sales in
our community, making it nec-
essary to make signs larger
than those with whom you are
competing. One guy in my
neighborhood has gone so far
as to hire the Goodyear blimp

OK, so having made the
decision to empty my rather
untidy garage of a few things. I
decided I must first figure out
where to start. It would, or
could, be a disaster to simply
attempt to walk through my
garage without a hardhat,
steel-toed shoes and a com-
prehensive life insurance poli-
cy. But, it had to be done.
The first thing to do had to
include where to relocate
those few things I intended to
sell, until the day of the sale. I
suggested using one of the
spare bedrooms, but was
voted down. Finally, I figured
that if I have lived with all my
"stuff", as George Carlin calls it,
for most of my life, I could live
with it a while longer. And
besides, what's a little dirt and
grime? Then I closed the
garage door and thought, what
the heck, I like my stuff.

Good wine grows on trees


S.. sort of


Wine and wood can be a
good marriage of flavors or it
can be like chewing a fireplace
log.
We're talking about oak
here.
Oak can be responsible for a
wine's complexity and its bou-
quet. Oak can give a taste of
tannin and nose of vanilla that
when combined with other
chemical elements in the juice
will produce a balanced and
complex wine.
Or it can be so overdone and
overwhelming that it so masks
all the other attributes of the
wine that only a beaver could
appreciate it. One of the easiest
ways for a winemaker to hide
or mask the flaws in a wine is to
over-oak it.
One of the biggest decisions
a winemaker will have to make
is how to mature the wine after /
it is fermented. The choices are
to leave it in concrete tanks,
stainless steel tanks or oak bar-
rels cooperagee).
The decision to age in oak
will mean more decisions
about cost, type of oak, and
size and age of barrels.
Not all wines lend them-
selves to oak. Riesling is one,
for instance, although it may
be held in very large ovals or
large wooden tanks.
This is a subject on which*
entire books are written, so we
will hit some high points here.
American oak gives the
most flavors and is generally
used for red wines, such as
cabernet sauvignon, merlot,
syrah and Zinfandel. American


oak is generally too strong for
white wines such as chardon-
nay.
French oak is the choice for
chardonnay and pinot noir,
and depending on the style of
wine desired by the winemak-
er, can be used for cabernet
and other reds as well. French
oak is a tighter-grained wood
and doesn't give up its flavor as
easily as American oak.
Buying oak barrels is a
major expense for a winery. At
a cost of $800 to $1,000 a barrel
for French oak and almost as
much for American oak, you
can see where a winery can tie
up a lot of its capital in barrels
alone.
Barrels are toasted on the
interior. The degree of toasting
brings out certain chemicals
and flavors and also helps the
cooper bend the staves into
shape.

There are four levels of
toast: light, medium, heavy'
and charred. Whiskey barrels
are charred. That's why old
whiskey barrels are not recy-
cled as wine barrels. -Plus,
whiskey soaked up in the
wood would eventually leach
out into the wine.
It's the same reason old bar-
rels previously used for red
wines are not reused for
whites. No matter how many
times they're washed, you'll
still get some red wine leach-
ing out of the staves into the
white wine, thus ruining the
color and giving off off flavors.
The level of toasting is a styl-
istic decision the winemaker
makes for each particular
wine.
The size of the barrel will
influence oak's effect upon the
wine. Barrel size determines
the ratio of the volume of wine

to the internal surface of the
barrel, with the smallest barrel
having the highest ratio. This
ratio influences the rate at
which oak flavors are taken up
and the rate of wine matura-
tion.
Once the wine has been
emptied from the barrel, the
barrel has to be cleaned before
reuse. This is one of those
glamorous, romantic jobs in a
winery you hear little about.
One day I was working in a
barrel room steam-cleaning
barrels with another worker.
He would fill the barrel with
nitrogen gas for short-term
storage after I cleaned it.
After a while I felt so tired I
could hardly summon the
strength to move. Very hard
work, I thought, and took a
break outside.
That night I told my wife
about how tired I got. "What!


*You idiot! That was caused by
breathing all that nitrogen!"
The next day my friend and I
opened all the doors, set up a
fan and got an oxygen meter to
*monitor the air quality.
Barrels are good typically
for three vintages (three years)
before a winery will try to sell
or replace them or mix in a
percentage of new barrels each
vintage as replacements.
New barrels quickly impart
flavors to a wine and must be
monitored to be certain a wine
does not become over-oaked.
When the time comes to
bottle the wine, some wineries
run the wine straight out of
each barrel to the bottling line.
Each barrel is different in the
case of quality, and this is a
quality-control area where you
can get a lot of bottle variation

Asolo offers 'Lady Windemere's Fan'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Despite what should have
been a strong cast, the Asolo
Theatre Company's produc-
tion of "LadyWindemere's Fan"
doesn't come up to the compa-
ny's usual standards.
The Oscar Wilde piece is set
in 1890 London. During a 24-
hour span Lord Darlington
(James Clarke) hopes to
seduce Lady Margaret Winde-
mere (Deanna Gibson) but she
will have none of it, at least not
until she hears gossip about
her husband (Richard B. Wat-
son) and a certain lady of ques-
tionable reputation, Lady
Erlynne (Ibi Janko). The cast
includes Sharon Spelman as
the Duchess of Berwick, Doug-
las Jones as Lord Lofton with
Geoffrey Todd, Mariam Habib,
Natasha Staley, Rose Boeringer,
Leslie Dodge Crane, John
Long, Carrie Mills and Bryan
Crossen.
Wilde's story is fun, filled
with twists and turns that
uncover several surprises and
Spelman turns in her usual
wonderful performance.
It is the rest of the cast that is
sadly in need of a dialect
coach. It is especially sad
because one is listed in the
credits. At best there were mere
hints of London in any age,
which would have been fine
had the director changed the
scene to America in the same
time period perhaps, or
France, or almost anywhere
but a place where one would
expect an English accent.

VLT offers world premiere

in Pinkerton Theatre


STAFF REPORT

The Venice Little Theatre's
Stage II season continues with
"The Dunes" by Craig Pospisil.
*It's not every day that the
playwright travels from New
York to Venice to work on his
play, but last week Craig
Pospisil did just that at the VLT.
The drama opened in Stage II
on March 16 and will run
through April 2, with perf6r-
mances Tuesday through Sat-
urday at 8 p.m. and Sundays at
2 p.m. Tickets are $20 per per-
son and are now on sale at the
theater's box office, by phone
at 488-1115 or online at
venicestage.com.
This Florida premiere by
one of America's most promis-
ing playwrights takes its
inspiration from Chekhov's
"The Cherry Orchard." In it, the
author introduces us to a fad-
ing movie star, her somewhat
unusual family and at the
heart of everything their
oceanfront homestead on
Long Island, now threatened
by her falling finances. As she
furies against the loss of her
youth, those around her con-
nive to protect what's left of
their inheritances. Pospisil
uses humor and drama to tell a
compelling story of family ten-
sions.
On his Web site, craig-
pospisil.com, the author opens
with "I've returned from a very
productive trip to Florida,
where I'm developing my play,
'The Dunes,' at Venice Little
Theatre. I was there for a week
of rehearsals, which went well,
and it allowed me to hear the
play and make cuts and revi-
sions to the text. I really thank
the -theater for this chance to
work on the play."
Pospisil's previous works
have premiered in New York
and at Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose
Theatre.

At the heart of New Orleans'
Mardi Gras events lie the
grand, elaborate floats that fill
the streets during the celebra-
tion. These rolling canvases
represent the various krewes of
the city to the public, and
along with the beads thrown
from the hands of their riders,
are the most recognizable ele-
ments of Mardi Gras.
While a number of compa-
nies design floats each year,
one stands above the rest in
terms of tradition and artistry
- Kern Studios. Founded by
Blaine Kern "Mr. Mardi

creating floats for Mardi Gras
since 1947, and for the last 11
years has designed and pro-
duced the floats for Universal

'Sophie Scholl The Final

Days' explores anti-Nazi student


PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Julia Jentsch.as Sophie Scholl, a student in 1943 Germany, arrest-
ed for distributing pamphlets against the Third Reich in "Sophie
Scholl The Final Days."


BY CHRISTY LEMIRE
GUEST WRITER


"Sophie Scholl The Final
Days" was nominated for an
Academy Award for best for-
eign-language film. Probably
only the first half, however,
deserves that honor.
Based on the true story of a
young woman who was arrest-
ed, questioned, tried and exe-
cuted in just six days for dis-
tributing anti-Nazi leaflets as a
college student in. 1943 Mu-
nich, the German picture
begins -with subtlety and sus-
pense, then builds to an
overblown crescendo.
Julia Jentsch is cunning and
fearless in the title role,
though, especially in the tense
scenes in which Sophie spars
with Gestapo interrogator
Robert Mohr (played with ob-
sessiveness by Alexander
Held). Sophie consistently
reveals herself to be a cool liar
with nerves of steel and a quick
wit qualities we might not
have expected from her initial-
ly.
Director Marc Rothemund
depicts his heroine in the be-
ginning as a God-fearing,
seemingly innocent creature,
singing along with the radio
like a starry-eyed schoolgirl
and turning her face upward to
smile into the sun. But later in
the uninviting confines of
Mohr's office, she will have an
answer for every question
that's fired at her, a readymade
alibi for. why she's on campus
with her brother, fellow Nazi


resister Hans (Fabian Hin-
richs), when the leaflets evis-
cerating Hitler are discovered,
and why she's carrying an
empty suitcase that happens
to be the exact same size as the
stacks of paper that were dis-
tributed.
(The filmmakers had access
to previously unpublished
transcripts of the Gestapo in-
terrogations, which provide
"Sophie Scholl" with its great-
est sense ofnw r.'- entum.)
After hours of hammering
her from every direction -
even leveling accusations
based on incriminating evi-
dence taken from her home -
Mohr finds himself in awe of
her. "You're so gifted," he re-
marks. "Why don't you think
and feel like us?"
But Sophie has a question of
her own: "What if your fuhrer is
insane?"
Certainly a smart, strong
woman who risked her life -
and ultimately lost it for a
cause she so passionately
believed in deserves a film that
takes some risks, too. In detail-
ing the last days of Sophie's life,
though, Rothemund and
screenwriter Fred Brein-
ersdorfer have locked them-
selves into an episodic struc-
ture that offers virtually no
nuance. WA_ never get a sense
of how these events ones of
great seriousness, played out
with dizzying speed affect
the people enmeshed in them.
Sophie is always deter-

One grand opening is past
and another is looming at the
John and Mable Ringling Mu-
seum of Art multi-museum
campus in Sarasota.
Crowds are pouring in to the
newTibbals Learning Center at
the Museum of the Circus
while others are awaiting the
April 22 reopening of the late
18th century Asolo Theater,
which gave its name to the
Asolo Theatre Company,
which performs across the
street from the new museum
entrance in the Florida State
University Center for the
Performing Arts.
It will be interesting to see
the confusion that arises from
people planning to see peifor-
mances at the old Asolo
Theater and others planning to
attend performances by the
Asolo Theatre Company. No
longer will the Banyan Theater
Company be the only "er" the-
ater or theater company in the
greater Sarasota area.
Meanwhile, as you contem-


plate that scenario, take the
time to visit the art museum
itself to see Waking Dreams:
the Art of the Pre-Raphaelites
from the Delaware Art Mu-
seum and also to check out the
reopened Huntington Gallery
on the southeast corner of the
museum.
On display through April 2,
Waking Dreams is considered
to be one of the most signifi-
cant collections of Pre-Raph-
aelite art outside the United
Kingdom.
Organized by Arts Services
-International and on loan from
the Delaware Museum of Art,
the collection spans most of
the Victorian era and includes
the 1848 practice work of
young Dante Gabriel Rossetti
and extends to several paint-
ings completed by Edward
Burne-Jones just before his
death in 1898.
The landmark art forms
practiced by the Pre-Raph-
aelite movement include oil
paintings, watercolors, draw-
ings, ceramics, jewelry and fur-
niture.

liam Holman- Hunt and John
Everett Millais were the three
young British artists who
banded together in 1848 in
London with other like-mind-
ed artists to found the move-
ment to revolutionize British
art, seeking the truth in their
subjects, eschewing anything
formulaic while studying
nature in great detail with a
goal of painting "thoroughly
good pictures."
Seeing what they wanted to
accomplish in the period of
western European art preced-
ing the Renaissance painter
Raphael, they dubbed them-
selves the Pre-Raphaelite Bro-
therhood.
Working with a bright pal-
ette of colors, the painters'
style was highly detailed and
precise.

"This exhibition bears wit-
ness to the 'cult of beauty' as it
evolved into the, Aesthetic
movement, taking shape in
Burne-Jones' evocative folk
tales and Rosetti's incompara-
ble 'stunners,' which crystal-
lized not stories by states of
mind," Ringling curator Joanna
Weber said.
"There are works by mem-
bers of the Pre-Raphaelite
Brotherhood, such as John
Everett Millais, that were
meant to overturn the rigidity
of the Royal Academy and
echoed Ruskin's call for 'truth
to nature' a direction that
lived on in artists such as
William Holman Hunt and
Frederick Sandys. The Pre-
Raphaelite Brotherhood was
revolutionary and truly signifi-
cant in 19th century art."
Weber is the Ringling cura-
tor for this show and associate
curator of the Ringling art
museum.

exhibition's cornerstone.

and are closely allied with
poetry and religion. Rossetti
works include "Lady Lilith
(1868), Water Willow (1871),
Veronica Veronese (1872) and
Mnemosyne (1881).
The Millais works in the
show include "The W\aterfall

Also part of the show are

tile manufacturer and art
patron who was the only col-
lector of Pre-Raphaelite art in
American at the turn of the
century.
A 396-page catalog will be
available in the new museum
store. The new store is to the
left of the lobbywithin the new
museum entrance.
The location of the former
museum store has been
reopened as the Huntington
Gallery. Finally, it is possible to
see the beautiful plasterwork
and other details of that hand-
some room, which once was
part of the Huntington man-
sion in NewYork.
When the mansion was torn
down in 1926 to make way for
Tiffany's, John Ringling pur-
chased the fittings of the room
at auction and had them
installed in Gallery 21, which


originally served as'the muse-
um's auditorium.
Ringling liked to purchase
things that, belonged to the
rich and famous,- buying
things from many prominent
estates for his own mansion. In
February, items form the
Ringling Museum's permanent
collection were installed in the
gallery.
Coming later in the year are
shows about the Early Modern'
Painter-Etcher (July 1-Aug. 19),
Master Drawings from the col-
lection of Yale University (Oct.
19-Jan. 7) and at the beginning
of next year, Encouraging
American Genius: from the
Corcoran Gallery of Art (Feb. 1-
April30).
Construction. continues
apace on a major addition to
the art museum gallery area on
the north side of the building
and in the planing stages is a
tea house to house the collec-
tion of the Museum of Asian
Art, which will be installed
there when the building is
complete.


Ongoing in the Circus
Museum is a salute to "The
Greatest Show on Earth," con-
sidered to be the greatest of all
circus films. Three years in the
making, it had num y scenes
that were filmed in Sarasota
and its world premier was at
the old Edwards Theater.
which is now the Sarasota
Opera House.
If you have not been to the
museum this season, don't
park where you used to. The
best parking is now at the
north end of the parking lot in
front of the FSU Center for the
Performing Arts, 5500 North
Tamiami Trail.
Enter the museum through
the former driveway gates
leading to the Ringling winter
home, Ca d'Zan on the bay
shore.
Consider that by entering
the museum campus this way,
you are now able to see the
complex in chronological
order
Ringling made his money
first from the circus, which is


delightfully displayed in min-
iature in the Tibbals center.
Then he and Mable built their
winter home, drawling on the
great homes of Europe for
inspiration and finally, -when
he was a real estate developer,
he built the museum, which so
strongly influenced the devel-
opment of Sarasota and this
area.
When he diedin 1936, some
seven years after the death of
Mable, he left the bulk of his
estate, including the museum,
home and an endowinent to
the state of Florida.
All the museums and the
home are included in the regu-

55 minutes.

ior helped him to an early grave,
most likely from syphilis. Along
the way, Wilmot wrote some
arguably brilliant poetry that was
not appreciated until after his
'death. The film looks at his life
and exposes the dichotomy of his
vagrancy and genius. 2 hours,
10 minutes.

MRS. HENDERSON PRESENTS
Mrs. Henderson Presents is the
story of the unheralded Laura
Henderson, a widow who took it
upon herself to buy the Palais de
Luxe, a tiny cinema in Great
Windmill-Street. With the help of
Vivian Van Damm she creates the
legendary Windmill Theatre, a
performance hall that was
London's answer to the Moulin
Rouge where women
appeared naked on a London
stage for the first time. Deep
down inside, Mrs. Henderson is
still fueled by her tragic past.
1 hour, 43 minutes,.

THE PASSENGER
For decades, Michelangelo
Antonio's existential drama has
been nearly impossible to track
down, but thanks to Sony Pictures
Classics, The Passsenger finally
* gets the exposure that it deserves
(making this event even more
noteworthy is the fact that the re-
released version contains
Antonioni's preferred 126-minute
cut). In an impressively low-key
performance, Jack Nicholson
plays David Locke, a reporter who
is researching a story in the North
African desert. But when he dis-
covers the dead body of a myste-
rious man he had just recently
befriended, a strange compulsion
overtakes him. Passing off the
dead man as himself, Locke
assumes the identity of Martin


Knight and travels to Barcelona
on a dangerous mission. Once
there, he finds himself falling for a
beautiful girl (Maria Schneider) as
he drifts further and further away
from the man he once was. It isn't
long before he realizes just how
much danger he is in, but at that
point, it might be too late to turn
back. 1 hour, 59 minutes.

NEIL YOUNG: HEART OF GOLD
Academy Award-winning
director Jonathan Demme (Whose
film Stop Making Sense is one of
the definitive concert movies) has
turned his eye on another rock
icon Neil Young. Demme's
gripping documentary captures
two nights in the life of the defi-
ant but aging rocker in perfor-
mances at Nashville's historic
Ryman Auditorium. This glimpse
of one of rock's elder statesmen is
also the study of a survivor.
Young was diagnosed with a
potentially fatal brain aneurysm
in 2005 and recorded the album
"Prairie Wind" four days before his
surgery. Two months later, the
fully recovered singer-songwriter
collaborated with Demme to cre-
ate this personal and reflective
portrait. With help from the
visionary cinematographer, Ellen
Kuras, Demme transforms
Young's performance of new
material and classics into a bitter-
sweet reverie on life choices, fam-
ily and mortality. 103 minutes.

MRS. PALFREY AT
THE CLAREMONT
The radiant Joan Plowright
brings an endearing warmth and
stately bearing to the title role of
Mrs. Palfrey, an elderly widow
who forms an unlikely friendship
with a young writer. When she
moves from Scotland to London
to be near to her 26-year-old
grandson, she ends up at the

ing for and Mrs. Palfrey finds
the grandson she wished she
had. A warm, honest story of
deep-rooted friendship and artis-
tic awakening. 108 minutes.

covering who's behind the rob-
bery of the Pink Panther dia-
mond. 1 hour, 32 minutes.

Douglas (Tim Allen) is a worka-
holic and frequently puts his job
before his family. After taking on
a case involving an animal labora-
tory, he becomes infected with a
top-secret serum that transforms
him into a dog. Life as a canine
gives Dave new perspective on
the importance of family, but
before he can make things right
with his wife and kids, he must
sniff out the villains responsible
for the serum. 1 hour, 39 minutes.

plications threaten her scheme to

Night. 1 hour, 45 minutes.

SYRIANA
From writer/director Stephen
Gaghan comes Syriana, a political
thriller that unfolds against the
intrigue of the global oil industry.
From the players brokering back-
room deals in Washington to the
men toiling in the oil fields of the
Persian Gulf, the film's multiple
storylines weave together to illu-
minate the human consequences
of the fierce pursuit of wealth and
power. As a career CIA operative
(George Clooney) begins to

his life to, an up-and-coming oil
broker (Matt Damon) faces an
unimaginable family tragedy and
finds redemption in his partner-
ship with an idealistic Gulf prince.

tionable merger of two powerful

tem that powers the industry.

LAUNCH from page 10
out on their own.
Tripp, though, poses a spe-
cial challenge.
Smart, charming and hand-
some, he lives at home not
only because it's convenient
but also because it's the perfect
excuse for ending relation-
ships that are getting too seri-
ous.
What self-respecting wom-


an wants to stay the course
with a middle-aged guy still
living with Mommy and
Daddy?
"Failure to Launch" stum-
bles its way to a preordained
happy ending without gener-
ating either much romance or
comedy.
Tom J. Astle and Matt
Ember's screenplay is one
cliched situation and card-
board character after another.


There's some really stupid
physical comedy, badly staged
by director Tom Dey ("Shang-
hai Noon").
Justin Bartha and Bradley
Cooper struggle mightily to
give some personality to their
characters, a couple of live-at-
homers who are Trip's best
buds.
As Paula's irony-drenched
roommate, Zooey Deschanel
aims for quirkily amusing and


ends up being merely irritat-
ing.
The only excuse for wast-
ing a couple of hours 'on
"Failure to Launch" is to bask
in the glows of Parker and
McConaughey.
Face it, they're hugely
attractive individuals who
ooze charisma from every
frame of film.
But after a half hour, even
they are floundering.


QUICK 1


sion. As Evey uncovers the truth
about V's mysterious background,
she also discovers the truth about
herself and emerges as his :
unlikely ally in the culmination of
his plot to bring freedom and jus-
tice back to a society fraught with
cruelty and corruption. 2 hours,
12 minutes.


THE WHITE COUNTESS
The last ever Merchant Ivory
film. Stars Ralph Fiennes and
Natasha Richardson with Vanessa
and Lynn Redgrave. Set in
Shanghai in the latel930s, this is
the story of the relationship
between a disillusioned former
U.S. diplomat and a refugee
White Russian countess reduced


to a sordid life in the city's bars.
Todd Jackson, once an American
diplomat filled with idealism, has,
lost his sight several years earlier,
and is now languishing in
Shanghai's grand hotels and elite
gentlemen's clubs, a burnt-out
case. He has become bitterly disil-
lusioned by realpolitik and the
seemingly unavoidable nature of


war and conflict. He is, moreover,
deeply bereaved by the deaths of
his wife and children victims of
violent events in the political tur-
moil of 1930s China that also
robbed him of his sight. 2 hours,
15 minutes.

SOPHIE fromPage 7
mined. Mohr is always antago-
nistic. Sophie's communist
cellmate, Else (Johanna
Gastdorf), is always support-
ive. And the judge presiding
over the farce of a trial, in
. which Sophie, Hans and one of
their partners are quickly
found guilty, is the most two-
dimensional of all.
Andre Hennicke portrays
Judge Roland Freisler in.singu-
larly shrill fashion eyes pop-
ping, veins bulging, voice
piercing with disdain and ven-
om. It's a performance that's
startling not for its closed-
minded cruelty, but for .its
high-pitched volume, and it
leads to a heavy-handed end-
ing that leaves no question as
to Sophie's martyrdom.
"Sophie Scholl.- The Final
Days" is not rated but contains
language and violence. In Ger-
man with English subtitles.

SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
Before or after a tour of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, spend some time in Ca d'Zan, the former winter home of the
Ringlings. The 8,500-square-foot marble terrace behind the mansion was the site of many Ringling parties, especial afternoon tea
dances, which were a favorite mode of entertainment by Mable Ringling.
