City manager announces future plans


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

In making his annual presen-
tation to members of the Venice
Nokomis Rotary Club Thursday,
City Manager Marty Black broke
the news on his future plans to
the enthusiastic audience.
He began by quoting the
words of Eleanor Roosevelt, "Do
what you feel in your heart to be
right for you'll be criticized
anyway. You'll be damned if you
do, and damned if you don't."
Many of his fellow Rotarians
had asked about his future
plans. Black said, "Instead of 12
hours, or more at a city council
meeting next Tuesday, I'll be off-
shore fishing for shark and


goliath grouper with my two
boys."
His wife has created a three-
ring binder to hold her "honey-
do" list. He had already started
on it and it would keep him busy
for some time. She also had one
other condition of his leaving
city government; they had to be
able to keep Venice as home.
On the professional side, he
had accepted the offer to serve
as a senior consultant, providing
governmental affairs, communi-
ty development, strategic plan-
ning, expert testimony, munici-
pal services and financial exper-
tise with Kimley-Horn & Asso-
ciates of Sarasota.
"They will be making a formal
announcement in the next


month or so,
after my wife,

made enough
progress on
the honey-do
list," said
Black.
He opened
his presenta- Black
tion with pride
relating to the city's success in
balancing its budget with reduc-
tions as promised, and no
employee layoffs. Funds are still
available for several new com-
munity projects including
Tramonto Vista Park; Legacy
Park; Venice Myakka River Park;
sidewalk extension on Auburn
Road; utility system renewal;


construction of Ruscellatto Park,
tree planting, including U.S. 41
Bypass entrance and finance
toward future beach renourish-
ment costs.
The future
As for Venice's future, Black
said it's up to the citizenry.
He asked if the people wanted
to continue to focus the growth
of the city as a retirement com-
munity, and risk becoming a
bedroom suburb of North Port,
or to emphasize creating an
environment where the historic
downtown can flourish with
retail and other amenities. Or
would residents like to empha-
size the advantages of a retire-
ment community that also has a


resort destination component?
"There continue to be oppor-
tunities to make Venice success-
ful; there are a range of future
scenarios," he said.
The average age continues to
increase. There are fewer and
fewer workforce options and we
are in the process of eliminating
the potential for the growth of
economic diversification, Black
said. Venice was planned to be a
city with a variety of housing
options, employment opportu-
nities and amenities. Focusing
on those strengths, he said, will
build a successful future from
which everyone can benefit.

Struggling father evicted


Unable to prove legal
custody, a family is
forced to move.

JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

This hasn't been a good year
for Christopher Fenimore; he
and his two daughters are being
evicted by the Salvation Army.
Eight months ago, before his
"common law wife" left him,
they shared a house in Venice, a
bank account and two daugh-
ters 8-month-old Rianna and
1-1/2-year-old Haylee that he
lovingly refers to as, "my girls."
But when she left, she took
everything except the kids.
"She basically just emptied
the bank account and left," Feni-
more said.
For several months afterward,
he scraped by working full-time
for a painting company in
Venice. He sold his car to help
pay the rent, but that was only a
temporary solution to a long-
term problem. When the money
from the car was used up, he and
his daughters were forced out
onto the street.
"I couldn't afford anything,
even working full-time ... it was-
n't enough to keep up," he said.
With nowhere to turn for help
in Venice, he went to the
Salvation Army of Sarasota. On
July 1, he and the children mov-
ed into an apartment offered by
the Families in Transitional
Housing program, an 18-month
program designed to help single
parents get back on their feet
after suffering economic hard-
ship.
But now, the Salvation Army
has asked Fenimore to move out
because of a stipulation that
requires parents to provide
proof of custody of their chil-
dren.

Christopher Fenimore's daughter Haylee sits on a suitcase while he pre-
pares to vacate a Salvation Army apartment.


Fenimore was never married,
and his name doesn't appear on
the children's birth certificates.
Since he's thus far been unable
to legally prove custody of his
children, he will need to go
through the court system to
draw up custody papers; a pro-
cess that takes time and a lot of
money to complete.


"It's going to cost me about
$5,000 in lawyer fees to have these
papers produced," Fenimore
said. "I just can't afford that."
Last Monday, a Salvation
Army representative informed
him that he would have a week
to produce custody papers or be

for disaster

BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

A staff dedicated to helping
others is the key to surviving a
disaster according to represen-
tatives from Venice Regional
Medical Center and Village On
The Isle.
"We have a lot of buy-in from
our staff," said Ann Pasik,
VRMC's director of risk manage-
ment. "That's a key component.
They don't have the 'running'
kind of mindset. The staff really
wants to stay and help."
The staff at Village On The
Isle, a local retirement commu-
nity, has the same attitude.
"We have a very dedicated,
expert team in my opinion," said
James Rafiner, disaster coordi-
nator for Village On The Isle.
VRMC
George Sorbino, VRMC direc-
tor of plant operations, is confi-
dent VRMC is well prepared for
any disaster.

so we have a lot of experience

was working at the Charlotte

Hurricane Charlie hit the area.
"We do two or three drills a

Currently Sarasota County
recycles two types of plastic.
These plastics are, polyethyl-
ene terephthalate ethylene
(PETE), used for soft drink,
juice, and water bottles, etc.,
and high density polyethyl-
ene (HDPR), used in opaque
plastic milk and water jugs,
bleach, and cooking oil con-
tainers, etc. These containers
are designated with either a
"1" or "2" encircled by a trian-
gle shape that can be found
on the bottom of the various
plastic containers.
Numbers "3" through "7"
are not recyclable at this time
and should be discarded into
the regular trash receptacle.
The caps of all plastic bottles
should also be discarded as
they are usually made of non-
recyclable plastics.

Estimate Social Security benefits online


FROM THE SOCIAL SECURITY
ADMINISTRATION

Michael J. Astrue, commissioner of
Social Security, has unveiled a new
online calculator at www.socialsecurity.
gov/estimator that will provide imme-
diate and personalized benefit esti-
mates to help people plan for their
retirement.
The Retirement Estimator is tied to a
person's actual Social Security earnings
record and eliminates the need to manu-
ally key in years of earnings information.
The Retirement Estimator is interac-
tive, allowing the user to compare differ-
ent retirement options. For example, a
person can change retirement dates or
expected future earnings. Individuals
also can print out up to three different
scenarios at one time, in addition to
information about their benefits at age
62 (current age if older), full retirement
age and age 70.


Best of all, the Retirement Estimator
is secure. The only thing it provides
online is retirement benefit estimates. It
does not show the earnings record infor-
mation on which the final benefit esti-
mate was calculated, nor does it reveal
other personal information.
"The Retirement Estimator is just one
of many things we are doing to make
more information and services people
need available over the Internet," Astrue
said. "We recently unveiled a new home
page at www.socialsecurity.gov that
reduces visual clutter and is easier to
navigate. In the fall, we will introduce
the public to our next initiative: a total
overhaul of our online retirement
application that will reduce the average
filing time from 45 minutes to about 15
minutes.
"These initiatives will help us better
handle the baby boomer wave and
make it easier for the public to do busi-
ness with us online."

School lunch price stays the same; breakfast cost raised


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

With all the concern over
increased fuel and food costs
these days, there is one place
parents can feel secure that their
children will be fed at a reason-
able cost: the public school.
Beverly Girard, R.D., director
of food and nutrition services for
Sarasota County Public Schools,
said lunch prices will remain the
same this year as they were last
year. Prices for a paid lunch are
$2 at the elementary level, $2.25
at the secondary level, and $3 for
adults. A reduced lunch will
remain at 40 cents.
"We did not raise lunch prices
and the quality will be the same,"


Girard said. "There is talk around
the state of decreasing the
amount and variety of fruits and
vegetables, or limiting the types
of food, but we will not do that.
We will continue to be as effi-
cient and cost-conscious as pos-
sible and offer a good program,
because for many of our children
this is the largest meal they will
receive in a day. For some, it's the
most nutritionally balanced."
More applications
Girard expects to see more
students apply for the free- and
reduced-price meals. She said at
the beginning of 2007-08 school
year 33 percent of the total stu-
dent population received the
value priced meals.


"By May, there were more
than 37 percent, and I believe we
will see 40 percent this year. This
is a huge, unprecedented step
for our students," she said.
Girard said this is the biggest
need she has ever seen in
Sarasota County in the 16 years
she has worked with the district.
Confidential
Girard wanted to remind
older students that they, too, are
eligible to apply for free- and
reduced-price lunches, and they
should not worry that someone
may find out if they do so.
"The older students tend to
be reticent about applying, but
by law, the information is confi-
dential," she said.


Breakfast price goes up
"We did have a price increase
for paid breakfasts, from 75
cents to $1.10 at the elementary
level, from $1 to $1.25 at the sec-
ondary level. Adults pay $1.50,
the same as last year. The price
increases are because we haven't
changed our breakfast price in
about 15 years, and the state has
mandated that every associated
cost for breakfast must be cov-
ered by the purchase price,"
Girard said.
"It's nothing amazing. We are
trying so hard to get kids to eat
breakfast and lunch, and because
food and fuel costs are up, we
were forced to raise the price of
paid breakfasts," she added.
Those receiving a reduced-


price breakfast, if they qualify for
a reduced lunch, will pay 30
cents for breakfast.
Those that qualify for a free
lunch will receive a free break-
fast. Calculations are based on
household size and income.
Milk a la carte costs 50 cents,
the same as last year, and comes
with the free- or reduced-price
breakfast and lunch.
"The reason we did not
increase the price of milk is to
encourage kids to take it," Girard
said. "We want to be financially
sound, but we want the children
to have good nutrition and suc-
ceed during the school day."

No tax-free week f


back-to-school shopping


BY JESSICA MILLER
INTERN

As summer vacation
winds down, back-to-
school shopping is creep-
ing closer. School starts
Aug. 18.
Some studies have
shown that the school
shopping rush is second in
terms of total revenue for
retailers only after the
Christmas holiday season.
Expect to spend more
than you are used to this
year. The state of Florida is
having not having the
annual tax-free week to
lighten the load of the
essential back-to-school
expenses.


This is not the first time
the Senate did not pass the
tax-free period. It was not
authorized in 2002 or 2003
either.
Not only have fuel and
food costs spoiled any
remains of a summer bud-
get, but employment,
especially for high school
and college students, was
at a significant downfall
this summer.
Venice High School
graduate Natalie Gaudreau,
now a sophomore at St.
Leo University, said she
was disappointed about
the absence of tax-free
week this year.
"Everyone looks for-
ward to saving money on


school supplies during
tax-free week," Gaudreau
said. "Students like myself
are trying to save as much
money as possible for
books and other college
necessities."
Now it's time to hit the
books again.
Even though the econo-
my is gloomy, new note-
books, pencils, paper and
glue sticks are still a must.
Parents can only expect
school expenses to become
more costly.
Venice Resident Paul
Cardamone, father of an
8-year-old, remembers
when he was in school
supplies were actually
supplied to students by


the school.
"My daughter is eight
and we buy new school
supplies every year,"
Cardamone said. "What
really adds up is what
teachers request you to
supply to the entire class-
room as well as your own
child's supplies."
Department stores are
taking it upon themselves
to offer sales throughout
the back-to-school shop-
ping season.
Bealls offered an extra
10 percent off the entire
purchase all day Aug. 6 in
lieu of tax week.
Pitching in
Given the general state


of the economy, the police
department, teachers and
local organizations are
doing what they can to
help with back-to-school
expenses.
Lisa Collins, Venice Ele-
mentary School teacher
and mother of three boys,
has been picking up sup-
plies all summer long when
she sees them on sale.
"I think teachers in gen-
eral want their classroom to
be supplied to ensure every
student has what they need
for success," Collins said.
The 13th annual Shop-


with-a-Cop event, coordi-
nated by Officer Dave Aker,
will take place Tuesday.
Thanks to contribu-
tions by Venice Police
Department employees,
and support from local
businesses and individu-
als, several students are
are able to purchase back-
packs filled with supplies
they need for the upcom-
ing school year.
"Students need their
tools to become educat-
ed," Collins said.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Timber thinning at Knight
Trail Park and Venice Minerals
Over the next several weeks,
Sarasota County and the Florida
Division of Forestry will begin a tim-
ber removal project at Knight Trail
Park and county-owned land just
east of Venice Minerals in Nokomis.
The project will occur east of
Interstate 75 between the Myakka
River and Cow Pen Slough.
Approximately 10 percent of the
timber areas will be cleared to assist
with future site improvement plans.
The remaining portions will be
thinned to help improve tree growth,
help restore pine flatwood and scrub


habitat, improve wildlife habitat,
provide a safer condition for pre-
scribed burns and help reduce the
potential for catastrophic wildfires.
Timber equipment will begin
moving onto the properties within
the next week.
Residents who have questions
about the equipment or would like
more information on the timber thin-
ning project may call 861-5000.
County seeks
indemnity agreements
Sarasota County is asking for the
public's help to collect "hold harm-
less" and right-of-way agreements


from owners of private roadways in
advance of the hurricane season.
According to Solid Waste Manager
Lois Rose, debris cleanup on private
roads after a natural disaster is at the
discretion of county commissioners,
but having signed indemnity agree-
ments on file will allow cleanup to
begin sooner for the areas affected.
Rose said some of the roads lie in
older areas where homeowners asso-
ciations may have disbanded years
ago. In those cases, residents will
need to contact the county individu-
ally, so they can sign the agreements.
For more information, call 861-
5000.

More m
People with
low-back pain choose to
be treated by chiro-
practors than any other
healthcare practitioner.
Efficacy aside, most seem to
like the hands-on care they
receive as chiropractors
endeavor to restore range of
motion and ease pain by
manipulating, or realigning, the
spine. At least one study also shows
that chiropractors tend to offer
patients more self-care advice and
information about their condition and
treatment than physicians. In
addition, research indicates that back
patients treated by chiropractors are
more satisfied with their caregiver
than those treated by medical
doctors. Taken together, these
findings add up to a healthy
endorsement of chiropractors as
back-pain specialists. If you
suffer from back pain, you owe it
to yourself to see a chiropractor.

OUR VIEW



You slander them, you buy them


From crime to bad drivers to money,
the range of topics that put frowns
on faces is long and diverse. But it is
probably fear of the unknown that tops
most lists.
So when the federal government issues
warnings that a certain food is the cause
of a nationwide salmonella outbreak, it's
understandable that people will err on the
side of caution. Such was the case with
this summer's tomato scare.
What began in April as an isolated
spike in salmonella cases soon spread
until the number of confirmed cases hit
1,220 in 42 states. Across the country,
restaurants altered recipes and menus,
grocers dumped inventory and farmers
watched plump, red tomatoes die on the
vine.
Then the Food and Drug Adminis-
tration announced it no longer suspected
tomatoes as the culprit behind the salmo-


nella outbreak and lifted its warning on
tomato consumption.
There is no hard figure on the cost of
the episode, but estimates range from
$100 million to $500 million nationwide.
The Palm Beach Post reported the eco-
nomic impact on Florida's $500 million
tomato industry could hit $100 million -
Florida provides 45 percent of the nation's
fresh tomatoes.
Today we join with the Post, Florida
agricultural commissioner Charles
Bronson and other voices in calling for the
FDA to make amends for its mistake. The
trade group representing Florida tomato
farmers is seeking compensation through
negotiations with the feds, but will resort
to a lawsuit if that doesn't work.
And rightly so. Not only weren't Florida
tomatoes to blame for the outbreak, it
turns out tomatoes weren't even involved.
In fact, Florida tomatoes were cleared by


the FDAbackin June but many stores and
restaurants took an understandably con-
servative route and didn't use or sell toma-
toes even up to the announcement clear-
ing them.
Worried consumers, not sure what to
believe, may let even more time pass
before testing the tomato waters again.
No matter how tasty a juicy beefsteak
tomato might sound, fear of the unknown
dictates caution.
Tomatoes may have been cleared, but
for this summer's crop, it's a little like the
governor calling with a death-row pardon
one minute too late. Watch out jalapeno
growers the FDAis tossing around your
crop as its next suspect.
Rep. Tim Mahoney, whose district
includes dozens of large growers, has
called on the FDA "address these crises
more quickly and to better publicize the
safety announcements, so that con-


sumers will immediately know which
foods are safe in the future." His House
colleague, Rep. Allen Boyd, is sponsoring
an appropriations bill that would com-
pensate growers.
There's no doubt the FDA is charged
with an almost impossible task. The sal-
monella outbreak occurred despite some
of the most stringent produce regulations
in the world.
Too few inspectors chasing too many
potential threats means this summer's
scare won't be the last. But because we
know another outbreak will happen and
another industry will be injured through
no fault of its own, there should be a
mechanism in place to compensate those
who suffer economic damage.
The Great Tomato Scare of 2008 will
prove to be a test case for how the govern-
ment treats those it has injured. Let's hope
it passes the test.


Saturday nightfever


MARY KAY RUPPEL
GUEST COLUMNIST


If it were not for the
weekly sunset party, Carib-
bean Sno-Ball, at theVenice
Beach Pavilion, I would
probably be in a rubber
room by now. Why? Be-
cause at sunset on Saturday
night I gather with my
friends, the Karaoke Kids,
and nobody talks about
politics. What a break! Our
leader is Bruno ofVenice.
Bruno moved to Venice
from Ohio awhile back
and has become one of its
preeminent movers and
shakers in entertainingVe-
netians. As a teenager,
Bruno became a profes-
sional singer and hung out
with some pretty famous
people. This emerald-eyed
son of Italy has a great
voice himself and is refer-
red to as the "singing D.J."
Our group of singers and
entertainers is talented,
diversified and brave, many
having never sung outside
of their showers. One of the
exceptions is Patty who has
performed professionally
on stage. She is a diminu-
tive cutie who belts out
"Hey Big Spender" like no-
body's business.
Blake was born in San
Antonio, Texas, so his rep-
ertoire is heavy on Garth
Brooks and Bob Seager.
This suave bachelor puts a
lot of emotion into his
songs and really draws the
audience into the lyrics.
Dee hails from Omaha,
Neb., and has a "trained"
voice. However, she does-
n't let that stop her from
belting out "Give Me that
Old Time Rock and Roll."
No offense to any of the
other singers, but Dee is
the "dancin' queen." Every
Saturday she leads the
electric slide in which
most of the audience par-
ticipates. Not me, because
I have two left feet and a
broken toe.
Andy is our tall, hand-
some baritone. He tends
toward Randy Travis tunes
and excels at "Forever &
Ever." Believe me, when
Andy sings everyone lis-
tens. He told me for this
article that he really likes
Santana and is going to
work up some of their
tunes. I can't wait because I
think singers should have
diversity.
Kaylie is 16 years old and
attends Venice High School
and resides in Nokomis. She


is Andy's daughter, which
just proves that genes rule.
She has a great voice and
was a runner up in a Miss
Pre Teen America contest in
Tampa. She's got it all, plus
good diction which is prac-
tically unheard of in our
average mumbling, whis-
pering teenagers today.
Luis was born in Puerto
Rico and moved to Venice
two years ago. He just
started doing karaoke five
months ago and aside
from being handsome, he
really rocks out on "La-
Bamba" and "Twist and
Shout." He dances with
Dee and does a mean
"YMCA," which Bruno has
rechristened "YOGA" in
honor of Elin, our resident
yoga instructor.
Our beautiful blond,
Valerie, resides on Venice
island with (sorry guys)
her husband Jack. She also
does modeling/sales for
the Classic Rose boutique
on Venice Avenue. Valerie
leans toward show tunes
and does a memorable
version of "Memories"
from "Cats." I cannot talk
about Valerie without
mentioning her mom, Lor-
raine, who accompanies
her every Saturday. Lor-
raine, as well as Val, hails
from Malden, Mass. Lor-
raine is one heck of a fun
lady and she can dance
with the best of them. Like
I said, it's in the genes.
Mike, from Pontiac,
Mich., just started singing
with us, but he is so good.
Like Andy, he has a nice
deep voice and casual man-
ner. Let's just say, Mike was
made for the mike.
David, who hails from
Northampton, Mass., has
been coming to the Carib-
bean Sno-Ball for ages, but
finally worked up the nerve
to sing. Last night he sang the
heck out of "Silver Wings," a
Merle Haggard tune.
Duncan is another new-
comer to karaoke. He's from
Flushing Meadows, N.Y,
and has never lost his New
York accent. Having had
some theater training and
once actually appearing in
a production with actress
Nita Talbot, he brings much
drama to his renditions of
"Nice and Easy" and "New
York, NewYork."
Now, until next Saturday,
I'll have to content myself
with obsessing on politics.
Nancy Detert and Mike
Grant are running for state
senate. I e-mailed them
with the same question.
Nancy e-mailed me back
promptly, but Mike "Cary"
Grant called me personally
to answer my question. Oh,
I wonder if he can swooon!
Mary Kay Ruppel is a
Venice resident and has

tor to other publications.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Friends are helping historic house


Editor:
Hold your horses, catch your breath, give us a break-
the Lord-Higel House has not been abandoned.
A new group has been formed and is awaiting full sta-
tus as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. This group
is know as "Friends of the Lord-Higel House" and will
serve as a fundraising group to carry on the restoration
and maintenance of the Lord-Higel House.
A board of directors has been appointed and they
have elected their officers, had an organizational meet-
ing and are in the process of planning their first mem-
bership drive. Many of the board have already put their
money where their mouth is and have contributed their
share of dollars to push ahead on the restoration project.
Anyone who is eager to be a naysayer should remem-
ber the old adage: How do we know where we're going if
we don't know where we've been?

Try offering a
little service
Editor:
Is anyone wondering
why the airlines are going
bankrupt? Have you flown
lately?
A recent trip from New
York to Florida took me 42
hours. Due to a mechani-
cal problem with a Delta
Airlines plane, I missed my
connecting flight to Tam-
pa. Things were so over-
booked, with so many de-
lays and cancellations,
and so inadequately han-
dled, I went from Albany,
to JFK, to LaGuardia, to
Boston, to Atlanta, to Tam-
pa.
At no time did anyone
even offer a bottle of water.
I kept being told that Delta
was not responsible be-
cause it was caused by
weather, which is an "act
of God" not the fault of
the airlines.
Wouldn't it be nice if we
all had a one-word "out"
for being responsible? If
we continue giving our
money to companies that
continue to treat cus-
tomers like dirt, they will
keep on going without im-
provement.


It's time to find an alter-
native to flying and tell the
airlines it's time to discover
customer service.

Even Democrats
know Buchanan won
Editor:
Before we fall all over
ourselves patting Chris-
tine Jennings on the back
for single-handedly saving
the integrity of the Florida
voting process, we need to
look at the evidence.
She charged that "faulty
voting machines" caused
more than 18,000 ballots
to go missing, thus caus-
ing her to lose the hotly
contested November 2006
election.
After all of her legal
shenanigans, after the tax-
payers of Florida funded
the replacement of the
very machines that she
charged were faulty and
caused her to lose the elec-
tion, after extended and
costly investigations at the
state level, after a costly
investigation at the federal
level by the nonpartisan
Government Accounta-


ability Office, after all of
that, the Democrat-con-
trolled U.S. House of Rep-
resentatives dismissed
Democrat Christine Jen-
nings' contest of the No-
vember 2006 election.
Why was her contest of
the election dismissed?
Because congressional in-
vestigators found no evi-
dence to support Jennings'
claim that malfunctioning
voting machines in Sara-
sota County contributed
to her narrow loss to Bu-
chanan.
So we replaced perfect-
ly good voting machines
based on now proven false
allegations by the loser of
the 2006 congressional
election.
Does she deserve acco-
lades for saving the Florida
voting system from voting
machines that even the
nonpartisan GAO says did
not malfunction? I don't
think so.
What I think is what the
GAO and the Democrat-
controlled U.S. House of
Representatives conclud-
ed there was no mal-
function of voting ma-
chines, and the results of
this election were always
correct.

Best government
governs least
Editor:
There are properties in
Venice that need grass and
plant cutting. But until the
city begins keeping its
public areas all pruned
and mowed, it doesn't
seem reasonable to come
down on private property
owners for the same thing.
Some cities just issue a
warning, then cut the
grass and send a hefty bill
for it. This can lead to a fat
lien on the property if con-
tinued for long.
Dilapidated structures
are different, and I agree
that there should be an
enforced standard for
exterior maintenance. But
this should allow great lat-
itude as so many of our
residents are elderly and
can't make or pay for re-
pairs for every flake of
paint that falls off their
house.
If a porch is falling off,
it's time to step in. Other-
wise, leave folks alone.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


Americans deserve to enjoy retirement


LORI PARHAM
GUEST COLUMNIST


Remember when you
were 10 years old and
carefree?
Remember when you
were 16 and just getting
your license, or 21 and
finally becoming an "offi-
cial" adult?
It probably doesn't seem
like that long ago. Time has
a way of moving too fast
and before we know it, we
find ourselves unprepared
for retirement.
A new study out by
Ernst & Young found that
most middle-class Amer-
icans three out of five -
will outlive their savings.
Not surprising we're liv-
ing longer and we're sav-
ing less. Most Americans
have less than $35,000
saved for retirement.
Another report high-
lighted the plight of for-
mer GM workers, who
thought they did every-
thing to prepare for retire-
ment only to have the rug
pulled out from under
them. The company was
looking for ways to reduce
costs, so it cut health ben-
efits and pensions.
Americans deserve bet-
ter. If you work hard all
your life, you should have


the tools you need to be
able to save for retirement.
Your pensions should be
protected.
Floridians, we have the
power to demand change.
AARP the Business
Roundtable and the Serv-
ice Employees Interna-
tional Union have joined
with millions of ordinary
Americans to hold our
elected leaders account-
able on the issues of health
care and lifetime financial
security issues that most
affect our lives.
Though we make rather
unlikely allies, we recog-
nize the power of coming
together to focus on what
we have in common. We
share a common commit-
ment to fixing health care
and lifetime financial se-
curity for future genera-
tions.
And that's the good
news we are not alone.
By joining with a million
other Americans, we can
make a difference.
For too long, we've
heard the concerns about
skyrocketing health care
costs. We know that too
many families can't afford
to get sick. We've heard
that most Americans have
little saved and are not
prepared for retirement.
These two issues jeop-
ardize our families and our
country's economic secu-
rity. Official Washington
has wrestled with the
problem, but it's tough to
solve. It's time to tell our
leaders that this must be
their top priority.
Only one in five Amer-
ican workers is still cov-
ered by a traditional pen-


sion. While many compa-
nies have replaced tradi-
tional pensions with 401K
plans, only half of all work-
ers eligible for an employ-
er savings program take
advantage of them, and
many who have saved for
retirement have a long
way to go.
If we don't give Amer-
icans effective tools to pre-
pare for their own futures,
millions of older Amer-
icans could be forced to
accept a bleak future. Yet
while our problems grow,
Washington seems mired
in partisan bickering. It's
high time we hold our
leaders accountable for
solutions.
These are not issues
only for Democrats or Re-
publicans these are is-
sues for all Americans.
We believe there are
solutions that many from
both parties can agree on.
It is critically important
that we work to get the
presidential candidates to
focus on providing work-
able, realistic solutions
that appeal to a broad
range of Americans. The
time for change is now. We
are optimistic that togeth-
er we can make a differ-
ence in securing a better
and stronger future for
America.

your voice be heard; visit

elected officials and candi-
dates and tell them we
must find bipartisan solu-
tions for America.

The drumbeat of city council


Unnatural. I think it's downright despicable, this
drumbeat of attack on city council, especially the Sun-
shine lawsuit brought by someone's stooge from Sara-
sota, of all places. The Sunshine Law is necessary but it's
also unnatural because the natural thing is for the coun-
cil members to talk to each other. When they don't talk,
it's like your children; when their natural chatter goes
quiet, that's when you start to worry. Sure, on previous
city council there was never a hint of Sunshine Law vio-
lations, but why? Because there wasn't any need for con-
versation, the majority of the council members all got
their instruction from the same pro-growth lawyer, so


they were always in synch.

Favoritism. I would
hope city council would
quit showing partiality and
favoritism to Venetian Golf
& River Club residents.
They knew or should have
known that their property
was adjacent to commer-
cial property. And if they
had done their homework,
they wouldn't have bought
there. I just hope council
will stop showing favor-
itism to them. They're not
the only ones in Venice. We
need the economy, thejobs,
that commercial property


we've never offered single-
day delivery You can get the
Sunday paper at a newstand,
but a subscription is a much
better deal.
Enjoy it. Hey, come on
you guys, leave the airport
alone. Just be thankful that
they're not fighter pilots
coming in and bombers.
They make a lot more


noise. Just enjoy what you
have.
Missing. Bicycles, bicy-
cles everywhere, and yet,
Mr. Vedder, you keep for-
getting about our bicycle
and conservation man.
Where is he, and why
haven't we had anymore
tips in your newspaper? I
looked forward to those
weekly comments and
truly wish you would put
them back in your news-
paper. So think about that,
Mr. Vedder, since we have
bicycles everywhere on
our roads, and we obvi-
ously need help with our
conservation efforts. Bring
that column back to life.

umn still runs regularly on

New hotel at your 'bark and call'


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


A new hotel has opened in
Osprey with a familiar sounding
name, but its slogan is a little dif-
ferent. "We're at your bark and
call," said Gail Marrison, owner
of the Howl-a-Day Inn, 120
Bayview Lane, Osprey This
boarding and day care facility,

Economist: Recovery about a year away


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Interest rates could start to rise
as early as September this year,
according to Dr. Sean Snaith and
his research staff at the Institute
for Economic Competitiveness.
Housing prices have probably
not bottomed out, according to
Snaith. The continuing large
inventory of houses combined
with the tight credit will conspire
to cause further declines in


prices in most parts of Florida
through 2008 and into 2009.
New car and truck registra-
tions likely will be lower than
1996 levels until the stronger
economy and aging stock of
vehicles combine to drive up
registrations in 2010.
Retail sales will rebound
between the fall of 2009 to the
end of 2010, growing at an aver-
age pace of 5.9 percent. Receding
inflation and a resurgent econo-
my in 2010 will power disposable


income growth of 4.4 percent,
the highest growth rate since the
height of the housing boom.
As the price of food and
essentials increase, the econom-
ic forecasters at the University of
Central Florida provide encour-
agement in their latest projec-
tions, indicating changes are
likely to begin later this year and
by 2010 we could again be enjoy-
ing the American dream.

Tumblers get a personal touch


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Kids Day is the first new
customer participation event
planned by Tervis Tumbler, pro-
viding youngsters the opportuni-
ty to design their own tumblers.
Children and families are
invited to visit the Tervis Tumbler
store, 928 South Tamiami Trail,
Osprey, between 10 a.m. and 4
p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9, when they
can draw their own designs to
decorate their tumblers.
"We will be opening up a spe-
cial room for young artists of all
ages," said Gail Bowman, Tervis
Tumbler's vice president of busi-
ness development.
The company is providing
markers and pencils with a wrap


tumbler template. Additional
staff will be on hand to assist the
kids with their drawing and help
with ideas.
The completed wrap template
fits the company's new tall, slen-
der 10-ounce tumbler. Artists and
their families can place single or
multiple orders for their own per-
sonal tumblers, which are priced
at $9 and will be available for
pickup or mailed within a few
days.
Employee families were invit-
ed to participate in a prototype
venture.
"We were surprised at the
high standard of the artwork and
the interesting designs provided
by the children," Bowman said.
Examples of the artwork are
being used in promotional


material to promote Kids Day.
"These will be treasured gifts
for grandparents, friends and
the artists to show off what they
can do and be proud of it," said
Bowman.
Assuming the project proves
to be popular, Tervis is consider-
ing introducing the complete kit
for young artists to do at home
and then mail in with an order. It
would be a new shelf item for
the store and retailers.
There are discussions about
holding a pet picture day for
owners to bring in photographs
of their pets with family or
friends and place orders for

tumblers incorporating the pho-
tographs.

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

A new networking group for
businesswomen in South
Sarasota County launches in
August, almost 12 months after
the founding of the Sarasota
club.
Women with Moxie's first
extension will be the Venice
chapter, spearheaded by Sandra
Finger, vice president of a bank
office in Venice Village Shoppes.
The organization was found-
ed 12 months ago by enthusias-
tic Sarasota businesswoman
Elsie Gilmore, who launched
this club for women business
owners.
"I had a craving for interac-
tion with other women, wanting
to hang out with cool chicks,"
said Gilmore.
She recruited a business
friend with whom she had set up
a small networking group four
years previously and they began
connecting with business col-
leagues. They pooled their lists
and the results were staggering.
Where did the name origi-
nate? Gilmore wanted spunky,
ambitious and creative busi-
nesswomen. She researched
Roget's Thesaurus, discovering
what she considered the most
appropriate descriptive name:
"moxie," meaning vigor, verve,
pep, courage, and aggressive-


ness, nerve, skill and know-
how.
In August 2007, she orga-
nized the first meeting of
Women with Moxie, an entirely
new style of business network-
ing group focused on helping
women build their businesses
by increasing their social net-
working. Meeting monthly,
membership has exploded and
currently exceeds 700.
"We have set ourselves apart
by communicating through our
Web site, www.womenwithmoxie.
com. I don't know of any other
such interaction online," said
Gilmore.
Networking
Finger attended a Moxie
Mixer meeting and immediately
saw a need in Venice. Following
a meeting with Gilmore, com-
mitments were made and Finger
began making contact with like-
minded Venice businesswomen.
Within a few days, Angela
Balsinger and Paula Carney
became co-hostesses of the new
Venice chapter.
"I see it as women helping
women," said Finger who is excit-
ed about the first Women with
Moxie mixer, taking place at the
Boca Royale Golf & Country Club
on State Road 776, Englewood,
from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12.
There will be no structure, speak-
er or commercials, just network-


ing by members to get to know
each other.
"We're matching up women,
good friends, good fun and good
business," said Finger.
Venice chapter meetings
will take place on the second
Tuesday of the month. Success-
ful WWM business promotion
mixers held in Sarasota during
the first 12 months included a
spa owner giving free back-
rubs; weight loss; dancing;
and makeovers and a photo
shoot. A de-stress weekend is
planned.
Membership is free to women
who sign up online before Aug.
12, or they can attend the Venice
meeting as nonmembers for a
nominal charge.
"We're looking for women
business owners or those who
hold the capacity of decision
makers in management," said
Finger.
She already has more than 20
signed up and is expecting 50
attendees for the launch of the
WWM Venice chapter.
WWM founder Gilmore, who
is attending the inauguralVenice
meeting, said, "I would love to
see 10 to 20 different cities hav-
ing Moxie mixers."
The first anniversary of
Women with Moxie takes place
in Sarasota the day following the
Venice chapter launch.

risks fire, theft -

Citizens also provides
complete property cover-
age for more than 800,000
other homes and busi-
nesses, chiefly in hurri-
cane-vulnerable coastal
areas. They won't be affect-
ed by the administrative
changeover, chiefly be-
cause these policy forms
are written using up-to-
date, Web-based software.
The wind-only policies
represented a mixed bag of
single-family homes, rent-
al units, condominiums
and manufactured homes,
explained Susanne Mur-
phy, Citizens executive
vice president of corporate
operations. They were all
being written using the
same antiquated paper
form, which made little
distinction for the wide


ments with area hospitals
as well as those within its
network to take VRMC
patients.
Village On The Isle
Evacuation is some-
thing Village On The Isle
practices each year.
"We have roughly 400
residents, staff and their
family members," Rafiner
said. "We go to 11 different
facilities in the state."
The retirement com-
munity offers indepen-
dent living, assisted living
and skilled nursing. If the
need to evacuate arises,


range of properties involv-
ed. However, no condo-
minium association, apart-
ment complex or business
policies will be affected.
The solution was to
shift the wind-only poli-
cies to the same software
Citizens was using for
everything else espe-
cially since the software
included features to help
calculate the replacement
cost of a dwelling. But to
get to this goal, all the
existing wind-only poli-
cies had to be allowed to
expire, then renewed
using the new forms.
Only policyholders who
own older homes need to
worry about what's other-
wise just a cost-cutting


they have to evacuate their
residents to like facilities
around the state.
"Once a year we do an
evacuation drill," Myers
said. "We actually drive to
these places and our inde-
pendent residents drive
the route, too."
Myers said the state
doesn't require them to
find housing for their
independent residents.
"But we feel it is so
important, so we have a
site that we contract with
for our (independent) resi-
dents," she said.
Rafiner said Village On


change in office proce-
dures. Citizens is essen-
tially promising that all
current policyholders who
apply for coverage using
the new form will get
accepted. But it's making
exceptions for three cate-
gories:
Dwellings with shingle
roofs more than 25 years
old.
Dwellings whose roofs
are more than 50 years old.
Any building that's not
on the same property as
the policyholder's primary
residence.
This doesn't mean that
older houses will be reject-
ed, Murphy said. "There
are many homes older
than 50 years that we


The Isle is rated to with-
stand a category 3 hurri-
cane
"We would definitely

evacuate if the storm was a
4 or more," he said. "But
we would consider evacu-
ating even in a category 3
storm if the conditions
warranted it."
The decision to evacu-
ate isn't an easy one. It can
be deadly for some resi-
dents and it's costly. So
that decision rests with
Village CEO Tom Kelly and
his board of directors.
"The nursing home res-
idents are so frail, they


insure." And the 25-year
and 50-year standards are
more guidelines than hard
rules.
"If somebody with a 25-
year-old roof had it
inspected by a contractor
who certified that it had
another three years of use-
ful life, we would be will-
ing to accept that and
would reissue the policy,"
Murphy said.
Murphy said that Cit-
izens had no immediate
data about how many of
the 350,000 policies repre-
sented older houses that
might need roof repairs.
It will take about a year
to work all the old policies
out of the system, Murphy
said. Citizens will mail

"We send our staff

Both VRMC and Village

generators to handle
cooling and electric
needs should a hurricane
hit and they are not evac-
uating. Both facilities also
stock extra food and
water just as individual
homeowners do to ride
out a storm.

FF Finally, a little time off


I wish


I was a



baller

I awoke before dawn.
I got a tip awhile back
about a men's basketball
league that meets at the
South County Family
YMCA on Tuesdays and
Thursday at 6:30 a.m. It
took me a good three
weeks to work up the ener-
gy to get out of bed in time
to cover it.
But this was a story that
required some unorthodox
methodology. No sitting on
the sidelines and keeping
stats. No notes. No pic-
tures. No post-game inter-
views. Total immersion.
To tell you the truth, I'm
not sure who won. I just
know that if it was my team,
it had nothing to do with
me. These guys were better
than I expected. Top to bot-
tom over 50 to fresh out
of high school these guys
can play, even if things get a
little slower and sloppier
after a game or two.
I didn't know how seri-
ously they took it until Jeff
Boone got to stompin' in
his Air Force Ones. They
were blue and white and
perfectly matched his
Florida Gator shorts for a
pick-up game. Admittedly,
I was envious. I was also
envious of his short-range
jumper. I'll buy a pair of
basketball shoes to be worn
once every 15 years before I
start hitting jumpers that
consistently.
I wore my New Balance
992s, showing how much
basketball I play. Then we
started playing, and it real-
ly started to show. The first
time I touched the ball, I
passed it to the wrong
team. The second resulted
in a steal, fast-break and
two points for the opposi-
tion. For the remainder of
the three games, I stuck to
defense. Call me Dennis
Rodman.
Here's a brief history of
my brief basketball career.
Mount Bethel United
Methodist Church league,
1992-1994: I think I scored
three points in three sea-
sons. Holy Innocents' Epis-
copal Church league, 1995:
I know for sure I scored two
points.
It took me 13 years to
get back on the court for a
real game, and the hiatus
didn't do me any favors.
But I had a good time
anyway. I mostly stayed out
of the way on offense and
held my own on defense for
at least two possessions.
The folks out there that
play every Tuesday and
Thursday were as patient
as they could be. If they can
put up with me, they can
put up with anybody.
So next time you wake up
at night to use the bathroom
and can't get back to sleep
on a Tuesday or Thursday,
stop by and they would love
to have you. I can't think of
any reason to be up that
early other than a 12:30
p.m. kickoffin Gainesville.

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School foot-
ball team concluded summer
workouts Thursday with a barbe-
cue picnic and a pool party.
Venice head coach John
Peacock recognized some of the
team's biggest gains over last year.
Notably, senior running back Dri
Archer has packed on 21 pounds
and reduced his 40 time by2/10 of
a second.
Senior offensive tackle Mike
Lopez dropped 30 pounds,
increased his squat by 20 pounds
and increased his clean by 50
pounds. He also ran all 16, 110-
meter dashes with the team this
year.
Senior offensive guard Mike
Gilbert increased his squat by 135
pounds.
"All that stuff on the field and in
the weight room gives us a
chance," Peacock said.
A few younger Indians made
great strides this offseason, too.
Sophomore tight end Beckett
Wales added 90 pounds to his
bench, 145 pounds to his squat
and 90 pounds to his clean.
Sophomore Clay Burton, who is
expected to contribute at defen-
sive tackle this season, added 105
pounds to his bench press.
In all, 16 players increased their
bench press by 40 pounds or
more, 17 upped their squat by 40
or more and 13 boosted their
clean by at least 40 pounds.
Workouts began June 7, not
long after the end of spring prac-
tice. Now it's time to rest for a
whole three days.
The Indians take to the field
again Monday morning for the
start of fall two-a-days. Here's a
look at how a few of them will be
spending their time off.

* Defensive coordinator Larry
Shannon
He plans to spend some time
with his kids and family while get-
ting after his honey-do list. "If I
don't do it now, it won't get done."
Some vacation, coach.

* Offensive tackle Mike Lopez
Lopez has no plans to take time
off after the improvements he's
made since last season neither
does fellow lineman Gilbert.
"[Friday] I'm going to come out
here and work out with my boy,
Gilbert. Then I'll probably sleep in
Saturday and rest on Sunday."

Manatee Community College considers impact to '2+2' program


FROM MANATEE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE


At its annual organizational
meeting held Aug. 6, the Man-
atee Community College Dis-
trict Board of Trustees re-elected
Venice resident Steve Harner as
board chair, elected Bradenton
resident Ron Allen as vice chair,
and approved the board's meet-
ing calendar for 2008-09.
The August meeting was the
first for new MCC President Dr.
Lars Hafner, who took his posi-
tion July 1. Board action includ-
ed approval of the college's five-
year capital improvement pro-
gram, a state-required work plan
to guide new buildings, major
and minor remodeling projects
and infrastructure renovations


at MCC's three campuses from
2009 through 2014.
Highlights of the CIP include
a request for funds to build a sci-
ence and nursing classroom and
lab building at MCC Venice.

Administration news

Hafner updated the board
about several important issues:
MCC is recruiting a vice pres-
ident of academic quality and
success, a new position created
by merging two former vice
president positions. Dr. Mike
Mears, dean, will serve as the
interim vice president of acade-
mic affairs until the new vice
president is hired.
The college's redesigned Web
site was presented.
Information was presented


about Amendment 8, which was
placed on the November ballot
by the Taxation and Budget Re-
form Commission to allow com-
munity colleges to seek funding
from their service district coun-
ties via local referendum. After
Hafner briefly described pros
and cons, trustees asked that the
topic be placed on the Septem-
ber board agenda.
The board heard about
changes that have been made to
preserve the college's efficient
operations and avoid staff lay-
offs while the college experi-
ences rapid enrollment growth.

2+2

Prior to the regular board
meeting, Hafner conducted a
workshop for the board about


the history and status of the
statewide articulation agree-
ment, known as the 2+2 articula-
tion agreement, and how chang-
es might impact MCC.
The original intent of the
agreement was to assure associ-
ate in arts degree graduates from
Florida community colleges that
they could transfer credits to a
state university. However, uni-
versities historically have varied
in their recognition of common
prerequisites and admissions
criteria.
Eighty percent of MCC trans-
fers travel outside the MCC ser-
vice district to pursue their bac-
calaureate degree.
USF receives the majority of
MCC transfer students but of the
62.7 percent that choose USF,


only about 20 percent of those
attend the USF Sarasota-Mana-
tee branch campus.
Decreased access to upper-
level programs has led to the
creation of a third level of higher
education, the Florida College
System. The hybrid college, call-
ed a state college: (1) maintains
open access for students and (2)
honors the mandate to respond
to community needs and (3)
provides both associate and
baccalaureate degrees to best
meet the state's employment
needs.
Hafner explained the related
potential implications to MCC
of Senate Bill 1716, which effec-
tively ended the Florida Com-
munity College System as of July
1, 2008.

BY CHARLEEN JAEB
GUEST WRITER

/ hey sayVenice is the
(Q "Hidden Paradise
on the Gulf."
I agree.
It is known for its natural
beauty its beaches and
waterways as well as for its
historic homes and its resi-
dents appreciation for the
arts.
Hidden in plain sight, there
is an "art walk" right in the
heart of town, along what
Venice MainStreet merchants
refer to as "the avenues of
Venice Miami, Venice and
Tampa and a little bit of No-
komis which also is an ave-
nue.
Within that area I discov-
ered seven professional art
galleries as well as dozens of
shops selling antiques, hand-
crafted jewelry, handmade
greeting cards, artistic cre-
ations made from shells and
home decor items. Some of
the galleries are studios with
artists at work on site. Some
offer classes. One serves bev-
erages and snacks. All offer
unique works of art, many
from local artists plus some
from around the world. The
proprietors are helpful and
knowledgeable and some are
artists themselves.
The route
1. Start on Miami Avenue,
visiting the studio of Barb
Ahem at 211 W Miami Ave.
Ahem offers classes for young
and old in pottery, jewelry
making, sculpture, painting
and drawing. She sells her art-
work in her studio and also
each Saturday morning at a
booth at the Venice Farmers
Market, where she and her
husband Ed have a booth. The
studio is open Tuesday
through Saturday, from 10
a.m.-4 p.m. Classes are offered
twice weekly for six weeks
with the payment due at regis-
tration. Saturday, they offer
open studio time with instruc-
tion, clay and firing in their
kilns.
2. Stroll east on Miami to
the Stillpoint Studio owned
Sister Maureen Michael Byrne
at 227 W. Miami Ave. in the
Burgundy Square building.


Art Fronckowiak puts the finishing touch on a painting while fellow artist Michael Miller looks on in the stu-
dio area of the Signature Fine Art Gallery.


The bright little cottage-like
gallery and studio offers art
classes for children and adults
Tuesday through Saturday.
Classes are limited to eight.
She prefers to work with just
three or four. Sister Maureen,
who formerly taught at
Epiphany School, produces
most of the art on display in
her gallery/studio. She also
displays the work of other
Venice-area artists. Sister
Maureen teaches sculpture,
watercolor and acrylic paint-
ing with spiritual direction.
3. Turn left or north at
Nokomis Avenue. On the west
side of the street you will find
Collector's Gallery and
Framery, at 114 S. Nokomis
Ave. Formerly on Venice
Avenue, the gallery has been a
Venice staple for some 20
years. It recently changed
hands and is now owned by
Leah and David Sherman. In
addition to offering full- ser-
vice framing of all manner of
artwork, the gallery carries
rare works of art from Africa,
hypo allergenic floral arrange-
ments, shadow boxing and
works by prominent artists
such as the late Ilse Kern of
Nokomis, and others.


4. Continue north to Venice
Avenue, turning west to 121 W
Venice Ave., where you will
find Signature Fine Art, the
studio and gallery owned by
Art Fronckowiak and Michael
Miller. The two artists create
all the paintings displayed in
the gallery in the studio at the
back of the galley. They often
paint customer requests,
changing painting sizes, col-
ors and even the composition
with the addition of some ele-
ment such as a dog, a house
or a child. Lower cost signed
giclee versions of their original
works are available. Miller has
a bachelor's degree in fine arts
from the University of South
Florida and joined
Fronckowiak in 2002. He spe-
cializes in dramatic florals,
landscapes, seascapes and
paintings that capture the
small-town charm of Venice.
5. Stay on Venice Avenue,
heading west to 243 W Venice
Ave., the location of Abbacino
Galleria, which is owned by
Harvey and Christine Davis.
The eclectic high-end gallery
is in its third year in Venice.
The gallery represents 108
local and international artists
in all media. It features


slumped, fused and blown
glass, acrylic, wood, marble
and copper sculpture; porce-
lain, low fire, stoneware and
raku pottery; one-of-a-kind
jewelry, batiks, fabric art, pas-
tels, watercolor, acrylic, oils
and mixed media. The gallery
often features solo shows.
6. To complete the stroll,
head north through Centen-
nial Park and over to West
Tampa Avenue to the Venice
Centre Mall. Near the mall's
midpoint, at 240 W Tampa
Ave., you will find the O Gal-
lery, owned by Nancy E Oss.
Opened for about a year, the
gallery is located in the former
office of the commandant of
the Kentucky Military Insti-
tute, which held classes in
Venice from 1932-1970. The
mall building was used as a
dormitory, with offices on the
first floor. Today, the O Gallery
uses the former comman-
dant's office and one other
room to feature the work of
local artists including: Herbert
Hofer, Australian primitive; Jay
Aiello, Florida's forms and tex-
tures; Susan Turconi, expres-
sive realism; Ron Genta, bold
and dynamic; Gregg Steker,
energetic canvases; Paul Ar-


senauult, impact of color,
composition and character of
a location; and Michael
Hughes, photographic land-
scapes. More artists are being
added. During the summer, O
Gallery is open only on Fri-
days from 5-11 p.m. or by ap-
pointment. The gallery serves,
beer, wine, coffee and tea and,
on Friday evenings, has poetry
readings and music by local
performers who bring their
instruments sort of an
open mic night but without a
mic. In season, the gallery also
will be open on the third
Thursday from 5:30-8 p.m.
and will add daytime hours.
Call 228-2627 for information.
Off the beaten path
There are many more art
galleries, dealers and consul-
tants in Venice, outside the
"art walk" area referred to in
the article. Always worth visit-
ing is the Venice Art Center at
390 S. Nokomis Ave. Weekdays
you also can enjoy lunch or
afternoon tea at the center. In
addition to its regular shows,
the center operates a gift shop
featuring the work of member
artists. The Clyde Butcher Stu-
dio at 237 Seaboard Ave. is an-
other interesting destination
where you can buy the artists
works as well as books and
calendars.

Wife's cell phone mystery man unsettles her husband


DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST

DEAR ABBY: My wife of
25 years has been talking
on the phone with a mar-
ried man who lives in a
city 300 miles away. They
chat for more than an
hour a week. Our cell
phone bills indicate that
this has been going on for
more than a year.
I have decided there is
nothing to gain by con-
fronting her with this
information, but every few
months I wonder. She has
never talked to me about
him. There is no way she
has been able to see this
man during this time, but I
wonder why she hasn't
mentioned that she has a
"phone pal."
At least she got him to
stop calling the house and
hanging up when I
answered. (She noticed I
looked at the caller ID.)
Any suggestions? SUS-
PICIOUS IN COLUMBUS
DEAR SUSPICIOUS: I
sure do. With cell phone
statement in hand, ask
your wife who she has
been talking to for the past
year and why she never
mentioned it to you.

Something IS obviously
going on, and you have a
right to know the truth. If
you aren't satisfied with
her answers, call the
phone number yourself.
The longer you ignore the
problem, the deeper in
trouble your marriage will
be.

DEAR ABBY: For the
past week I have been
remodeling my home.
Workers have asked to
use my bathroom, which
is a problem for me as I
feel it is an invasion of a
personal, private space. I
feel they should have a
porta-potty in their vans
or find a public toilet
nearby.
Am I wrong? I hate say-
ing "no," but I feel my pri-
vacy is stolen. PRIVACY,
PLEASE, IN MONTANA
DEAR P.P.: Call your
contractor and ask that a
portable toilet be provided


to the workers on your job.
However, if that's not pos-
sible, rather than telling
the people remodeling
your house to find a public
toilet, I'm advising you to
relent. Happy workers do
better work, regardless of
what field they're in. And
when work is being done
in my home, I not only
allow workers to use the
"facilities," I also offer
them a cold drink on a hot

day. (Hint, hint.)

DEAR ABBY: I just got
back from one of the best
vacations I have had in my
life. It was relaxing, and I
had a blast. Do you think
it's weird that I went on
that vacation alone with
my father-in-law?
His son, "Blake," and I
have been married for 14
years, and I have been
around the family for


more than 20. I met Blake
when we were both in high
school.
Before the trip, Dad and I
got negative comments
when the upcoming vaca-
tion was mentioned. Was it
"inappropriate"? Or are the
people saying so jealous
they don't share a close rela-
tionship with their in-laws?
Blake and my mother-
in-law were fine with the
idea. Dad had fun telling


people we met on the trip
that I was his "secretary."
We laughed about it but
when we told them I was
his daughter-in-law, they
looked perplexed.
I love my in-laws as if
they were my own parents.
What's your take on our
vacation? I am 37. -

Jewish Center of Venice remembers a family


BY JACK MALLINGER
GUEST WRITER

It is tradition at the Jewish
Center of Venice for the Rabbi
Ann White to read the names of
those for whom Yahrzeits
(anniversary of death) are being
observed.
The tone of a recent Shabbat
service was more somber than
usual, as the names of 27 family
members of Jerome Greenstein
were read. All of Jerome's family
that resided in Europe during
World War II were murdered by
the Nazi regime. The European
side of the family was extermi-
nated as a grandfather, five
aunts, four uncles, and 17
cousins perished in Auschwitz.
The exact date of deaths are not
known, but based on informa-
tion noted by a non-Jewish vil-
lager and provided to the family
years later, the family here in
the U.S. chose to observe their
Yahrzeit as May 24, 1944.
Although tragic, the story of
the Greenstein family is not
unique. It was not unusual in the
early 20th century for many
families to be separated with
some remaining in Europe while
others migrated to the United
States.
Jerome's father, Dennis, had
not seen his family since leav-
ing home for the U.S. in 1923.
In the spring of 1935, he
received a letter informing him
that his mother was very ill.
Being a devoted son, Dennis
Greenstein decided to return
to Europe to check on his
mother, help with her care, as
well as to visit family that he
hadn't seen in a dozen years.
His wife, Helen, daughter
Blanche, and son Jerome
accompanied him.
In June of 1935, the Green-
stein family left for Europe by
steamship from NewYork to Le

PDrivacy is a rare commod-
ity these days, especially
for homes located near
town and beach.
Realtor Judy Winkelmann
recently listed one of these rare
homes in the Plantation Golf
& Country Club.
The three-bedroom, two-
bath home is on a cul-de-sac in
Plantation Lakes. Immediately
behind the home is a dedicated
wildlife preserve area, offering
immediate privacy to the house.
There also is a long lake and
greenway, which can be enjoyed
from the inground heated pool
and lanai area of the home. The


White Corian counters are a featured element in the
home's kitchen, which also has new paneled wood
cabinets.


Window treatments enhance the dining room's window. The master bedroom includes a sitting area.

Shifting shenanigans: What happens when you shift from drive to reverse
while traveling at 60 mph? Here's a hint: Arrange for a tow truck before
starting the experiment. See page 2.


You Auto Know:
Jeeps were the
workhorses of
America's military for
many years. There
are a lot of retired
servicemembers who
still have fond
memories of their
rugged little
runabouts and
some of them now
have restored jeeps
of their very own.

Outstanding vintage military jeeps, part one


Ieep, a name known
throughout the world,
was created in the late
s-early '40s to replace
the horses used in the
U.S. Army Cavalry. With
uncertain conditions in
Europe from Germany
and early aggressive
tactics by Japan against
China, Korea and other
countries, senior officers
of the American forces
decided to modernize.
Specification require-
ments and bidding
proposals went out to all
U.S. auto manufacturers
asking for prototypes to
be built for testing at
Aberdeen Proving
Grounds located 30 miles
from Baltimore, Md. Only
two responded: The
Bantam Company of
Pennsylvania and Willys
of Ohio.
Bantam had been
making very small cars in
limited numbers for
several years, and soon
had one ready for inspec-
tion and field testing. So
did Willys, only theirs was
more powerful and
sturdier than the basic
design rules set by the
government. Both met the
minimum requirements
and each allegedly won
separate contracts to
proceed in producing
general-purpose vehicles.
Within a very short
time, Bantam was pushed
aside because they lacked
ability to mass produce a
high volume of these
popular go-anywhere, do-
anything workhorses. War
began and Willys took
over solo and had three
shifts going, yet more
were needed. Thus, Ford
came into the picture.
Soon the Army, Army Air
Corps, Marines, Navy,
Coast Guard, Army
Reserve and National
Guard units, plus border-
patrol airplane and ship
builders were using them.
So were our allies!
They became the
highest-volume piece of
transportation used in



\< ( ( II(


R Don
SRoyston


both theaters right up to
the surrender, and many
remained in service of our
occupational troops.
Many were sold cheap as
surplus items. It's estimat-
ed many hundreds of
thousands were built up
to that time for military
use, many of which were
destroyed to keep the
enemy from getting them.
An example of this was on
the island of Bataan
where my brother-in-law's
brother was a civilian
under contract to audit
the records of different
branches of the service.
He told of jeeps, trucks,
tanks, large guns and fuel
containers being blown
up, just before surrender-
ing to the overwhelming
forces of the Japanese
who had invaded and
were about to overrun
them. It was either this or
allow said war material be
used later against other
American and allied
troops in the future.
The jeep pictured is not
exactly like those of the
WWII era. It is a distant
cousin, improved (in
some ways) but basically
the same as early models.
I'll begin with the
unarmed 1952 M38A1
seen here with owner
Robert "Ozzie" Osborne,
62, formerly of Ocushnet,
Massachusetts where he
and his wife, Janet, lived
for many years. Ozzie, as
he insists on being called,
was a manager at UPS
over 32 years. Janet
worked in the St. Luke's
Hospital near New
Bedford as a medical
records transcriptionist,
something she does now
for Transcend Services
Inc. on a contract with a
local hospital.

They had visited the
Keys for "at least 10 years,"
and upon retirement
planned on moving to the
area. Visiting is one thing;
being a permanent
resident is entirely
different! While there, they
happened to look at a
boating magazine, where
they saw a detailed ad by
Coldwell Banker for
waterfront property in
Punta Gorda/Port Char-
lotte.
By October 2000, they
purchased a house not far
from the Port Charlotte
Beach Complex. They
retired in January 2001,
sold the northern home
and packed up and came
to Charlotte County.
Osborne had been wanting
ajeep similar to the one he
had access to in Heidel-
berg, Germany, when he
was in his late teens. Now
with time on his hands and
money in his pocket, the
search became a passion.
Finally, an almost exact
unit appeared on eBay.
After scrutinizing the
photos and talking to the
owner, an older gentleman
who used it to pull his
private planes out of a
hangar, Ozzie knew it was
what he wanted. Two
weeks later it came to
Florida and became a
dream come true.
It features a four-
cylinder F head (where
the intake valves are in
the head and the exhaust
valves in the block),
original in all ways
including a 24-volt
electrical system along
with the factory-installed
shovel under the hood. A
new top and back seat
were added, and the
brakes were rebuilt. This
jeep is "ready".
Ozzie is now a happy
camper, reliving his youth
every time he goes out in it
to run errands, go to the
golf club, restaurants,
grocery store, auto shows
or cruise-ins. This Veteran
Motor Car Club of America
is the chief registrar for the

Sun's "Welcome Back"
CollectorVehicle Show of
Nov. 15. Early birds can
check in advance with him
at 941-235-7701. Hopefully
a contingent of ex-military
machinery will show up at
this fun event too.
The second jeep I
mentioned will appear
along with a very detailed
letter from the owner
telling about it and the
military vehicles collec-
tors' organizations in the
next Wheels "You Auto
Know" column as part
two. Believe me, you'll be
impressed and like it.
I just have to tell readers
of two great sources I've
found for specialty
electric parts and tube-
type radios, phonographs,
repairs, etc. Dave Soltow,
owner ofYesteryear
Antique and Electrical
Parts, covering vehicles
from the 1920s to the
2000s, operates a one-
man business that grew
from a hobby to one of


uft tug~


the nation's largest
supplier of rare ignition
and general electrical
items for old or unusual
vehicles. He also rebuilds
generators, etc. His
normal method of sales is
through the Internet or
hobby publications;
however, sometimes he
handles transactions
direct for local people of
Charlotte, Sarasota and
DeSoto counties. His
telephone number is 941-
743-7784.
The fix-it man for
anything using tubes, in-
car or regular radio
receivers, amps and
phonographs is Jack


Hendrick of Port Char-
lotte. His method of doing
business is similar to
Yesteryear's, except
customers need to bring
their nonworking items
direct to him or by
shipping carriers. Phone
941-624-3286 for details.
We in Southwest Florida
are very fortunate to have
these tradesmen nearby.
Please record their
information in your
"source file".
Don Royston is president
and co-founder of the SW
Florida Chapter of the
Veteran Motor Car Club of
America. He can be
reached at 941-575-0202.

If you've ever experienced a Florida

been caught in a
violent thunder-
storm while on the water
probably doesn't want to
repeat that experience. I
know I don't, but I'm
sure I'll make another
bad decision at some
point and find myself
praying that lightning
doesn't turn me into a
crispy critter. It's just the
way it is, but I'm getting
better at making good
decisions.
Years ago, a friend and I
were fishing the Content
Keys out of Big Pine Key. I
poled him along the
mangroves on the Gulf
side of the Contents as
we searched for bonefish
and permit. There were
enough fish to keep us
focused on the task at
hand. I kept a close eye
on storms developing in
the Gulf and planned to
skedaddle if they neared.
What I didn't plan on
were the storms develop-
ing on the other side of
the Contents the side
totally obscured by the
mangroves. When we left
my dock on Big Pine the
skies were clear, so I
never considered the
possibility of danger
from that direction. I
was wrong.
After a few hours of
poling and fishing we
reached the end of the
Contents and saw a
huge, black thunder-
head. "Let's get out of
here now!" we shout-
ed at the same time as I
furiously poled to get off
the shallow flat so I could
get my boat up on plane.
We didn't make it very far
when a waterspout
formed a short distance
away. To make matters
worse, it headed right at
us and I couldn't pole
fast enough to get out of


2Kq- Ii M i 1aI-'l I I'm i LI.!

the way. I jumped off the
poling platform, put my
motor down as far as I
could and yelled, "Hang
on!" as I dug a trench in
the marl of the flat. I
don't know how I didn't
break my prop or screw
up my lower unit; all I
knew was I was on
plane heading for
deeper water.
But the waterspout and
storm were coming from
the direction I needed to
go and I wasn't real
familiar with the alterna-
tive routes this was
before I had an onboard
GPS unit and had to rely
on charts. I knew that if I
made it to Spanish
Channel I would make it
back to Big Pine Key
even though it would
put me on the opposite
side of the Key from my
dock. I figured I'd deal
with that later I
wanted to get as far
away from the water-
spout and thunderstorm
as quickly as possible.
As luck would have it,
another boat sped past
heading in the general
direction of the channel.
I followed as best I
could, but my puny 90
hp couldn't keep up with
is 250 and he left me far
behind in his wake.
Besides, I couldn't stand
the stinging raindrops
hitting my face; they
hurt like the dickens. But
I at least outran the


brunt of the storm.
Still unclear about
where I was, I decided to
hunker down in the lee
side of a mangrove
island and wait out the
pelting rain until I got
my bearings, so I did.
Every mosquito in the
Keys found us in that
storm; it was a miser-
able wait.
The storm passed and
I eventually made my
way back to the dock -
wet, a bit frightened and
promising to be more
vigilant about checking
the weather. But I soon
forgot or minimized that
experience and man-
aged to get caught in
other admittedly not
as violent or scary -
storms, but dangerous


nonetheless. It's not fun
to say the least.
Today, I am very
careful regarding the
weather. My cell phone
has the capability to pull
up real-time Doppler
radar and I use it
constantly. I may be
tempted to gamble on
the weather, especially if
it's the only day I can be
on the water, but I think
I've learned my lesson. I
now err on the side of
caution and yes; I have
come off the water


prematurely wishing I
was still there. But I
haven't had to hunker
down in a drenching
downpour, as mosqui-
toes feasted on my body
while praying that
lightning doesn't kill me
in a long time. I can't say
that's not in my future -
I can be as dumb as
anyone but I'm
making a real effort.
Be alert, pay attention
to the weather and make
it back to the dock alive
and safe.

The El Jobean Bait and Tackle Store


To those of you
who think all bait
shops are the
same I recommend a
visit to the new El
Jobean Bait and Tackle
Store. It's actually been
up and running for
three months. With my
typical unawareness
(you have to poke me
with a stick to get my
attention), I somehow
missed it even though I
live six blocks away.
There are at least three
special elements of this
new bait place. I will
get them in a minute
but first; here is some
background on the
owners:
Randy and Patricia
Greene's former careers
were cut short after a
tragic car accident that
left both of them with
back injuries. Randy
was a mechanic.
Patricia was a FedEx
delivery driver, a pretty
spinal-intensive occu-
pation. They both loved
fishing, so during their
recovery they began a
yearlong exploration of
the Gulf coast looking
for a business to run.
And they discovered the
bait place on the road
near the El Jobean
fishing pier.
Some of you are
familiar with that shop.
It was attached to the
side of The Bean Depot
Restaurant. It had
erratic hours of opera-
tion and the bait tanks
bordered on dysfunc-
tional. After buying the
place, Randy immedi-
ately sunk almost
$30,000 into upgrading
the equipment and
storage facilities and
adding rods, reels, and
gear. But that isn't what
makes this place so
different.


Special thing number
one: Randy will tell you
that his goal is "person-
alized service." I am a
cynic, and to me those
words mean a comput-
erized toll-free "help"
number with a menu
longer than your
memory and no living
persons onsite. But
that's not the case for
El Jobean Bait and
Tackle. Personalized
service means Randy,
Pat, and Todd are
dedicated to helping
amateurs, profession-
als, and newbies with
all aspects of fishing.
Rather than whine
about waiting on you,
they are willing to go
that extra yard to show
you what gear to use
and what bait to use.
They will tell you where
to fish and what time
to be there. They even
deliver box lunches to
anglers on the El
Jobean Pier.
Special thing num-


ber two: El Jobean
Bait and Tackle
operates seven days a
week. Most important
to avid anglers are the
early morning open-
ing times and the very
late nighttime hours
of operation: Sunday
- Thursday: 6 a.m. -
10 p.m., Friday and
Saturday: 6 a.m. -
midnight. You don't
wait for bait!
Special thing number
three: Along with a
huge selection of
frozen baits, Randy
carries the best jumbos

Fiddlers aren't just for sheepshead


Just about every
inshore fish eats
fiddlers. Most of us
ow that they are
excellent bait for
sheepshead and
pompano in the winter
and early spring. There
are at least two more
fish that go nuts over
fiddlers: Redfish and
black drum will go out
of their way to dine on
them. It's not just the
chillier season; it's
every season.
Many northeast
Florida fishermen
know this and target
reds with fiddlers. They
claim that the main
reason reds go far up
into the creeks is to
forage on fiddlers. My


fiddler supplier claims
that they have become
a four-season bait for
him, particularly on the
East Coast.
The problem on our
coast is awareness and
promoting them. There
are two ways to fish
with these creatures.
One way is to buy or


I l MR. SHEE1 1EAD


pounders in the
creeks. He puts two or
three on a hook for
reds and black drum. I
sent him a few pack-
ages of my cooked
frozen fiddlers. He says
that they bite just as
good on them as on
the live ones. He
commented that the
feature that impressed
linn \\a.5 lie could
refieeze
them .


without any problems.
On another subject,
our beach fishing is still
excellent in the Venice
area. The reason is
simple: Plenty of bait.
Now we have to hope
that we don't have
problems with hurri-
canes or red tide. We'll
talk


again in a few weeks.

More fish-naming alchemy to come


t used to only happen
on slow days. Com-
mon, but quite edible,
fish that were usually
discarded or used for
bait, became elevated to
glamour status. This
occurred when more
sought-after fish would
not cooperate. To save a
trip, wily fishing guides
would magically change
the lowly Key West grunt
into the vaunted imperial
snapper.
The less desired fish
were often better eating
and put up a tougher
battle than scarce red
snapper or large grouper,
but they just did not have
the name appeal. But
change the name and
voila, the catch pleased


Killi 1ii.T.]gm, i i0 IV


many an unsuspecting
tourist and saved a slow
fishing day for the guide.
It appears that grouper
are about to join the list
of fish that we really are
not going to be able to
catch reliably anymore.
The government appears
poised to pass extremely
restrictive rules on these


popular gamefish.
Ah, but will it bring an
end to offshore bottom
fishing also? Not if savvy
Florida "cracker" anglers
have their say. They still
have that alchemical
trick up their sleeves and
are getting better at
working it.
Since Key West grunts
are plentiful Gulf fish that
can go in the fish box
when grouper and
snapper are scarce, some
work will need to be
done there. These fish are
much prized in the Keys
and are good eating.
Meanwhile, they're
already misnamed. The
real name of this fish is
the white grunt. Since
nobody's complained


about the Key West
moniker perhaps they
won't mind when it is
now called a snapper.
There is another
common Gulf fish that
has long been called a
squirrelfish by native
Floridians. But about 20
years ago, a few savvy
head boat operators
discovered that the true
name of this small, but
beautifully colored, fish
was the sand perch. It's
better eating than any
grouper, but is so small
that visiting anglers did
not think much of it until
the word perch a small
Lake Michigan delicacy
- was added to its name.
Another Gulf small fry
is the fish veteran anglers


call a beeliner. It's very
small and often used for
bait. However, it is a
gorgeous bright red color
and one of the better
eating fish in the Gulf.
Scientists helped sell this
fish a bit when they called
it a vermillion rockfish.
But its value soared when
they decided to reclassify
it and put it in the
snapper family.
Now the vermillion
snapper, small though it
may be, ranks up there
with the gigantic Ameri-
can red, except it's a lot
more plentiful.
If we could somehow
officially get the name of
the Key West grunt to
something else most of
these worries would be


ended. But grunt just
does not sound appeal-
ing. This fish has a mouth
that features a bright
flame color on the inside.
Perhaps offshore fisher-
men could start calling
them flannel mouths and
make a fuss over catch-
ing them.
Pretty soon the words
grouper and snapper
might just vanish from
the offshore lexicon. Just
don't make a big fuss
when you catch a 20-
pound ugly grey fish with
thick lips.
Tell them it's just an old
grouter (change one
letter) and toss it in the
fish box for crab bait. But
uh, don't do it while your
boss is looking on.

Hittin' the beach, rod in hand


,' i. : L .


Most folks who
make a visit to
the beach will
spend their time on the
strand by soaking in
some sun, playing in the
sand and taking a dip in
the cool waters of the
Gulf. The equipment list
for this beach trip will
include blankets,
towels, umbrellas, swim
trunks, sunscreen and a
cooler filled with ice
and refreshing bever-
ages. Throngs of people
enjoy this kind outing
every day in Florida and
these beach trips are an
important piece of the
tourism industry that
pays so many of the
bills in the Sunshine
state. Now here's a
question: Is it weird that
I can't abide flopping on
the seaside sand or
splashing in the surf?
It's not that I have
anything against sun,
sea or sand; it's just that
any time I'm close to
salt water I can't help
but think about fishing.
Sitting on the sand right
next to all that fishable
water becomes a form
of torture, especially
this time of year when
there are so many snook
cruising along the
swash. For me, such a
trip to the beach is only
bearable if I've managed
to sneak a fishing rod
into the truck.
In Southwest Florida
during the summer
months large numbers
of snook move out of
the estuaries and take
up residence on the
Gulf beaches. Beach
snook are living in an
environment that's
completely different
than most of the places
where anglers find these
fish. Many of these fish
simply cruise along the


shore where there is no
cover whatsoever,
sliding slowly along the
sandy bottom, some-
times a few yards
offshore in a few feet of
water. But often right up
on the shallowest part
of the beach where they
will follow small break-
ing waves towards
shore, then retreat with
the receding waves.
Sometimes the snook
will venture into water
that's only inches deep,
so shallow that their
backs become exposed
as they slide along on
their bellies. These
snook are chasing after
the countless small fish
and crustaceans that
live in the surf, and
under the right condi-
tions, knowledgeable
anglers can spot, stalk
and cast to these fish
using much lighter
tackle than is practical
when targeting snook in
most of their more
structure-oriented
habitats. These fish can
be caught by anglers
with boats, or by
pedestrian anglers who
walk the beach looking
for targets.
The first trick for
would-be beach snook
fishermen is learning to
spot fish. This is best
accomplished on bright
days with little wave
action. Even a modest
amount of surf will
churn the waters
enough to make spot-
ting fish problematic, so
beach snooking is often
best when winds are
easterly, a wind direc-
tion that tends to flatten
the surf. Bright sun
makes fish much more
visible, but don't expect
to see something that
looks like the snook
you're accustomed to


catching in the bays.
Beach snook are very
light in color, almost the
same shade of gray as
the beach sand they're
cruising over. More than
one first-time snook
angler has noted that
these beach fish look
more like bonefish than
snook. Sometimes when
the sun is high it's easier
to spot the shadow of
the fish than the actual
fish.
The next trick is
knowing where to look
for fish. Beach snook
might be found literally
anywhere along the
beach, but there are
areas that do hold more
fish. Any structure or
change in character of
the beach, even the
smallest outcropping of
rocks, a downed tree, a
patch of grass on the
bottom or even a small
point or bit of deeper
swash channel can
concentrate dozens of
fish in a remarkably
small area.
One reason I like
chasing snook on the
beach is that it's possi-
ble to use very light spin
or fly tackle because
there are few obstruc-
tions or snags, and
besides, most of the fish
are not large. These fish


Check Out The
Classifieds In The

SUN -4i&A


are mostly chasing
small baits (you'll
probably see schools of
small whitebaits while
you're snook fishing), so
small, light-colored
lures or flies are
effective. Sometimes
snook will follow
along with schools of
baitfish moving along
the beach.
Just beware: If you
become a fan of fishing
for snook on the beach
then you could end up
like me, sneaking away
from the family beach
umbrella with fishing
rod in hand.

Florida sailors ready for the Olympics


A s more and more
countries partici-
ate in the Olympic
games every four years, it
gets harder and harder for
athletes to qualify or even
to compete. For sailors,
even though the number
of Olympic events keeps
growing, qualifying to
compete has an extra
hurdle. As mentioned a
few columns ago, there
are 11 different sailing
events scheduled in
Qingdao (pronounced
ching-dow), China this
Olympic year, in eight
different one-design craft.
One-design means that
all the boats are as
identical as possible, so
that the best sailor wins,
not the fastest boat. The
races will be in staggered,
weeklong events between
August 8 and 24.
Not only must an
American sailor win
against all the other
American sailors in his or
her class of boat, Ameri-
can sailors must do well
enough in international
competitions to qualify
America to race in that
particular event. For
instance in the 470 class
of centerboard sloops,
American men had to do
well enough in specified
international events to
qualify America for the
men's Olympic 470 event.
American women had to
qualify America in
exactly the same way. It
was the same in every
other sailing event.
As in many other
sports, competitors are
ranked ahead of the
event, based mostly on
their recent performanc-
es. America has qualified
in all 11 events, but only
one American sailor has
been ranked first: Anna
Tunnicliffe of Plantation,
Florida, in the Laser


Radial class. Up until
about two years ago,
another American
woman, Paige Railey, was
considered a shoo-in to
represent us in the class,
but Anna came on like a
tea clipper starting in
2007, and beat Paige for
the spot. Interestingly,
Paige's brother Zach will
represent the U.S. in the
Finn class, another
single-handed boat.
In both the men's and
women's events in the
RS:X windsurfer class, the
U.S. will be represented
by Floridians, Nancy Rios
of Tampa and Ben Barger
of Miami. Neither is
ranked first in the world,
however. Among the
women, Marina Alabau
of Spain is ranked first;
among the men tops is
Przemyslaw Miarczynski
of Poland.
The U.S. representa-
tives in the two-man
keelboat, the venerable
Star and the only U.S.
boat in the Olympics,
aren't from Florida, but
they're a feel-good team.
Both from Gulfport,
Mississippi, Austin
Sperry will crew for his
father-in-law John Dane
III, age 58. It was particu-
larly sweet for Dane, who
has had a fantastic racing
career, but never quite
made it to the Olympics,
even after close finishes
in Olympic trials in three
different classes of boats


I SAILING AWAY I


since 1968. Again, they're
not the favorites. And
again, the Poles are -
Mateusz Kuznierewicz
and Dominik Zycki.
In the first post-war
Olympics, in 1948, the
Star series was won by
another father/son team:
Hilary Smart of the U.S.
with his father Paul as
crew. There was a
father/son team at the
1984 Olympics too, but in
two different boats: Bill
Buchan skippered the
Star (he won) and Carl
crewed in the Dragon (no
longer an Olympic class.)
The Star was designed
by Francis Sweisguth of
the famous William
Garden yacht design
office in 1910. The hull
has remained basically
the same, but the original
was gaff rigged, or more
correctly had a sliding
gunter rig, with the gaff
almost parallel to the
mast. This was replaced
in 1923 with a relatively
short marconi rig the
simple triangle almost
universally used by
today's sailboats which
was replaced again with
a taller, more aerody-
namic marconi rig in
1930. It is still in use
today. The Star first
appeared in the Olympics


in 1932. It was replaced in
1976 by a more modem
boat, the Tempest, which
had a trapeze for the
crew as well as a spin-
naker. But sailors
rebelled, and the Star was
reinstated in 1988.
Will White has raced
and cruised sailboats
since 1942, published The
Sunfish Bible, wrote a
bunch ofsailing articles,
and is building a 31-foot
schooner He can be

bay? The boy born
under the sign of the
crab (a homebody) -
doesn't want to go out.
But as is the fate with
most boys, he's going
whether he likes it or
not. He likes it not. Pouts
in the back seat of the
car as the three of them
cut through the back
streets of Sag Harbor. As
the boy looks out the
window, the father
notices abject loathing
thaw into grudging
interest as the boy
studies the new land-
scape sweeping by him.
They pull into the
parking lot of a nature
preserve and step out of
the car. Interest has
turned into urgency. The
boy is now in the lead,
beckoning the older
ones onward. They're


not too far along the trail
when the boy discovers
them: Raspberries.
They stop to pick the
berries. Someone or
some bird has beaten
them to the most
obvious bunches of fruit,
the ones near the top
and near the trail. The
trick to berry picking is
to reach deeper into the
bush and underneath.
The father and grandfa-
ther are rediscovering
this while the boy
discovers it. Not even the
bramble's sharp prickers
can stop him. He's very
different from the boy of
ten minutes ago. He
wants to be here.
Naturally, he has
questions. Shouldn't
they wash the berries
before they eat them?
How does his father
know they're all raspber-
ries, anyway? Hey can


they pick the blackber-
ries that grow behind
their backyard when
they get back to Florida?
Well, when can they?
The trail goes by a
saltwater pond, an
upland field, cedar
woods, and a saltmarsh.
Along the trail, all the
way to the beach, are
raspberry and blackber-
ry bushes. It's like a
receiving line at the
wedding of the raspberry
and blackberry, with the
three of them stopping
every 10 yards or so to
pay their respects to the
members of each family.
The blackberries
weren't prepared for this.
Most of them aren't yet
black, and the ones that
are have meager fruits
and taste bitter. They'll
be ready for eating in
August. But the raspber-
ries are at their peak -


soft, delicate, mild with a
sugary aftertaste.
There is something
about picking berries,
says the grandfather as
he watches the boy
filling his free hand with
red fruit. Without
speaking, the father
finishes the thought. Yes,
there is something
primal to berry picking
- the gatherer instinct,
which, like its twin the
hunter instinct, is just as
strong in us today as it
was thousands of years
ago. It can turn a walk in
the woods into a little
feast. It can transform a
grumpy little boy into a
happy one. The father
finds both of these
things encouraging.

From page 4

and handpicked live
shrimp I have ever
seen in Florida. Others
will tell you size doesn't
matter, but I have


learned that hardy
action-filled shrimp
attract bigger gamefish.
My first morning out
using Randy's muscular
crustaceans I caught
(and released) six slot-
sized redfish, one 5-
pound tarpon, and a


snook that actually
broke the anti-reverse
pin in my Okuma reel.
And this is from my
little Gheenoe right out
in the Myakka River
basin. Let's just say I
was impressed.
Probably the best


compliment any
fishing-related busi-
ness can get comes
from the people who
use their services. I was
hanging my own
picture of a redfish on
the "Door of Fame"
when a customer


approached me. "You
know, this Randy guy
who owns this place is
the real deal. I moved
down here a year ago
with my seven fishing-
nut kids, and I just
bought a boat. He has
helped me with gear


and answered every
question I had." Not
much I can add to that.

Let's Go
Features Editor
kcool@venicegondolier.com
Call me an
"Oklahoma" groupie but
for the past few weeks I
have been popping in and out
of the Venice Theatre to check
the progress of the theater's
Summerstock program.
One day was more amazing
than the next as the young
players learned about theater
lighting, costume making,
makeup and other backstage
work while also rehearsing
daily to learn lines, songs and
dance routines.
From day one, these talented
actors were proving why they
were selected during the spring
audition for the theater's sec-
ond summerstock program, a
part of the theater's education
and outreach department,
which is directed by Sandi
Davisson.
The 2008 production opened
July 31 to a house packed with
enthusiastic theatergoers anx-
ious to see what Director Brad
Wages and his cohorts had
taught his cast to do. In sum-
merstock, everyone does a bit
of everything and so it has
been with this troupe. On stage
they will be singing and danc-
ing but they also have been
climbing ladders to hang lights,
painting sets, sewing cos-
tumes, building props and
planning publicity for this
year's show.
While Wages handled direct-
ing and choreography,
Michelle Kasanofski has been
the show's musical director,
Michael N. Brown designed the
sets, Dorian Boyd did sound
and Mark Dukes and Shawn
Watkins worked on the
production and lights. Chris
McViker is the technical
director for the 23-person cast.
The final performances of
Rodgers and Hammerstein's
"Oklahoma" will be Aug. 7, 8, 9.

'Dream Out Loud' opening at Mertz Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Kaleidoscope opens its new
show in the Mertz Theatre for
Friday and Saturday perfor-
mances.
The annual event features
adults and children with devel-
opmental disabilities as per-
formers in "Dream Out Loud," a
show developed in their sum-
mer musical theater workshop,
which began July 7.
Venice Theatre has its
Loveland Follies and Sarasota's
Asolo Repertory Theatre has
Kaleidoscope. Both shows are
collaborations that yield bound-
less benefits for the community.
The annual Loveland Follies
show in June is the result of a
partnership with the Venice
Theatre and Loveland Center for
adults with developmental dis-
abilities. Now in its 11th year,
that show has performers who
have been in all 11 shows and

Kaleidoscope is a similar part-
nership involving Asolo Rep and
Community Haven for Adults
and Children with Disabilities.
Staff from both organizations,
clients and volunteers plus fam-
ily and friends met in the Asolo
Rep's rehearsal hall to kick off
the project at the beginning of
July.
The show's title, "Dream Out
Loud," was derived from the
concept that dreaming can lead
to change, Asolo rep spokesman
Julia Guzman said in a press
release about the upcoming
show.
While rehearsing the show,
the actors will be exposed to this
concept of looking into their
own hearts and realizing the
possibilities that can come from
believing the value and beauty
of one's dreams.

Venice Theater presents summer rep program


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Rep returns to the Venice
Theatre for the eight season.
At the Venice Theatre, the
annual summer rep program is
used as part of the selection
method for plays to be offered
in future winter seasons.
Plan to spend some time at
the theater everyday from
Aug. 12 through Aug. 24.
Subscribers to the entire series
gain two additional plays,
"The Graduate" and "King
Lear," for the price of the
$35 season ticket.
The plays will be staged with
minimal sets. Actors will have
scripts in hand. After each play,
audience feedback will be
elicited to be used as added
information for the theater's
play selection committee that
chooses plays for coming
seasons.
There are two shows on
Aug. 23, when audience mem-
bers are invited to "kick back"
with the actors for "Dutch
treat" pizza between shows.
"Trumbo," by Christopher
Trumbo, a new play being
made into a movie, concerns a
1950s blacklisted screenwriter.
It will be presented at 8 p.m.
Wednesday, 2 p.m. Aug. 17 and
and 8 p.m. Aug. 21.
Douglas Carter Beane's
"The Little Dog Laughed,"
which satirizes the movie
business as well as life in the
big city, will be presented at
8 p.m. Wednesday, 8 p.m.
Aug. 18 and 4 p.m. Aug. 23.
Paul Rudnick's "Regrets

ple of all types and classes.

"Love Drunk" written by
Romulus Linney, is being
debuted in Venice before its
New York opening. Linney was
a writer in residence this past
year at The Hermitage Artist
Retreat on Manasota Key, and
is an award-winning play-
wright. While at the Hermitage,
he participated with the Venice
Theatre's Artistic Director
Murray Chase and Hermitage
Director Bruce Rogers in a


public chat within the
Pinkerton Theatre. From the
friendship that ensued, the
Venice Theatre was invited to
present the first staged reading
of "Love Drunk." Other plays by
Linney include "Holy Ghosts,"
""Lord Byron," and "Heathen
Valley." "Love Drunk" will be
presented at 8 p.m. Aug. 16;

sented at 8 p.m. Tuesday. "King

Elsa and Fred is a story about two people
who, at the end of the road, discover that it's

82 years-old and for the past 60 years she's
dreamt of a moment that Fellini had already
envisaged: the scene of La Dolce Vita at the
Fontana di Trevi.The same scene without Anita
Ekberg in it but Elsa instead. Without Marcello
Mastroiani but with that love that took so long
to arrive. Alfredo is a bit younger than Elsa and
was always a good man who did everything he
was supossed to do. After losing his wife, he
feels disturbed and confused and his daughter
decides that it would be best if he moved into
a smaller apartment where he'll meet Elsa.
From that moment on, everything changes.

It is summer, and thirty-year-old NEW
Antoine is forced to leave the city
to return to his family in Provence. His father is
sick, so he must assume the lifestyle he
thought he had shed-driving the family
grocery cart from hamlet to hamlet, delivering
supplies to the few remaining inhabitants.
Accompanied by Claire, a friend from Paris
whom he has a secret crush on, Antoine
gradually warms up to his experience in the

Hancock (PG-13) C+
There are heroes... there are superheroes...
and then there's Hancock (Will Smith).
With great power comes great responsibility -


everyone knows that everyone, that is, but
Hancock. Edgy, conflicted, sarcastic, and
misunderstood, Hancock's well-intentioned
heroics might get the job done and save
countless lives, but always seem to leave
jaw-dropping damage in their wake. The
public has finally had enough as grateful
as they are to have their local hero, the good
citizens of Los Angeles are wondering what
they ever did to deserve this guy. Hancock
isn't the kind of man who cares what other
people think until the day that he saves
the life of PR executive Ray Embrey (Jason
Bateman), and the sardonic superhero
begins to realize that he may have a
vulnerable side after all. 1 hr. 32 mins.

'Oklahoma' renewed at Venice Theatre


Let's Go! Page 13


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre's Summerstock
production of "Oklahoma"
sparkles like the fresh-faced kids
in its cast.
One of the show's highlights is
Kim Gaesser as Ado Annie
Carnes singing "I'm Just a Girl
Who Can't Say No." Gaesser
owns the stage. She is cute and
perky, has a great singing voice
and can vamp and mug with the
best of them. Gaesser is a name
to remember. It will be on some
marquee again soon.
Will Betterton, despite being
too good-looking for the role, did
a great job as Jud Fry. He just
needs some more makeup to give
him a more sinister appearance.
Evan Glantz met the challenge
of portraying Curly, the lead role,
very well. His diction is excellent
and he did a fine job with his
many songs, especially, "People
Will SayWe're in Love."
Playing opposite him as
Laurey, is Cassie Lima, who has a
fine singing voice and youthful
exuberance.
Benjamin Caswell was a
delight as the disreputable ped-
dler Ali Hakim, the man every-
one loves to hate.
Director/choreographer Brad
Wages choreography was right
on, matching the talented cast
members to the feel of the show,
resulting in such great production
numbers as "Kansas City" and
"The Farmer and The Cowman."
The Rogers and Hammerstein
show was not only the longest
show on Broadway but the
longest-running show of its time,
racking up 2,212 performances
according to Wages who directed
the Venice Theatre production,
slimming it down by a good 10
minutes for modern-day audi-
ences.
In summerstock tradition, this
group of players worked on
every aspect of the show, from
painting sets and sewing cos-
tumes to hanging lots and
designing posters and programs.
That they did it all under the
watchful eyes and tutelage of
professionals like director Brad
Wages, costume designer
Nicholas Hartman, set designer


Michael Newton-Brown, sound
designers Dorian Boyd and
Jaclyn Ledoux, musical director
Michelle Kasanofsky and lighting
designer Shawn Watkins and
production manager Mark
Dukes gave them the oppportu-
nity to hone a variety of skills.


The result for us in the audi-
ence was an enjoyable evening
of entertainment.
"Oklahoma" continues at
Venice Theatre, 140 W Tampa
Ave., through Aug. 9. For tickets,

call 941-488-1115.

Southern charm is comforting

at Florida Studio Theatre


August 7- 8, 2008


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Kathleen Clark's "Southern
Comforts" has been extended
through Aug. 17 in the Keating
Theatre at Florida Studio
Theatre for good reason.
It oozes southern comfort as
leading lady Susan Greenhill,
as Amanda Cross, oozes south-
ern charm enough to beguile
old Yankee stonecarver and
widower Gus Klingman
(Richard Bourg).
The setting is the spartan
Klingman living room. Both it
and its owner are in for some
drastic changes following the
arrival of the widow Cross to
deliver his church offering
envelopes. When a torrential
downpour traps her in the
house, the unlikely couple real-
ize their shared love of the
grand old game of baseball and
the first glimmer of a smile
creeps onto the face of a cer-
tain curmudgeon.
Poignant moments balance
the fun, and it all works
because of perfect timing by
the actors. Directed by Robert
Farley, Bourg and Greenhill are
characters that many in this
area can identify with senior
citizens who are widowed and
alone but not necessarily lone-
ly and then again?
Marcella Beckwith's cos-
tumes and set are right on the
money as is Christopher
Bartelski's sound and Colleen
Jenning's lighting.
There is even something
enjoyable about intermission


during this totally charming
production. Love those sum-
mer rains!
Tickets are $19-$32 per per-
son and may be purchased at


www.floridastudiotheatre.org
or at the theater's box office.
Call 941-366-9000. FST is at
1241 N. Pineapple Ave.,

Morikami hosts annual Bon Festival


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
While Japan celebrates its
three-day Obon Festival in
August, the Morikami in Delray
will host its 31st annual Bon
Festival Saturday.
Given current gas prices and
the hassles of airline travel these
days, the one-day Morikami
version seems to be the better
choice, anyway you look at it.
Just getting to Tokyo's airport
from anywhere in the eastern
part of United States is a 24-hour
ordeal at best. The four-hour
trip to Delray from Southwest
Florida seems to be a much bet-
ter choice, if only to save much
time and money. And then there
is the Morikami itself one of
the most serene destinations in
the state. Whether enjoying tea
in its authentic teahouse,
strolling its tranquil gardens or
pausing to look at the koi from
a handmade wooden bridge
across one of its many water
features, the Morikami, which
honors early Japanese settlers
in the Delray area, is a
one-of-a-kind treasure.

Bon Festival
Condensed to the hours of
5 p.m. 9 p.m. on Saturday, the
Morikami version of the festival
will be packed with activities
from taiko drum performances
to fireworks. The gardens will
be ablaze with Japanese lanterns
and there will be a street fair
with food and entertainment.
The Obon Festival, on which
the Bon Festival is based, is one

CALENDAR EXTRA

National Marina Day
On Aug. 9, Fishermen's
Village Yacht Basin, located in
Punta Gorda, will once again
observe National Marina Day.
It is a time when marinas
across the nation celebrate
their contribution to boating
recreation. It is also a time to
reflect on the value of marine
recreation to our community.
The University of Florida has


of the most important Buddhist
events for Japanese people who
pray for the souls of their ances-
tors, light paper lanterns within
their homes and participate in
special folk dances.
Fushu Daiko will perform
on the taiko drum and there
will be traditional Japanese folk
dancing plus plenty of food
- both Japanese and American.
Japanese beer and saki will
be available

Tributes
In keeping with Japan's three-
day festival which honors the
spirits of the departed, the
Morikami festival also will honor
the spirits of family members.
There also will be a special trib-
ute to the memory of U.S.
armed forces personnel who
have given their lives during
the five years of the Iraq war.
At 9 p.m. a shouryou bune
(bamboo boat for escorting
spirits) will be sailed into the
Morikami's pond. Members of
the military and their families
are invited to attend this special
event within the four-hour
evening festival.
"The Bon Festival has become
a heartfelt tradition for many
South Floridians," said Kizzy
Sanchez, Events Manager for
The Morikami Museum and
Japanese Gardens. "Many of our
visitors have said that the float-
ing of the Bon lanterns provides
one of their most moving
moments and beautiful scenes
in remembering those who
have passed on."



reported that Florida is the top
ranked destination for marine
recreation in the United States,
with an estimated 4.3 million
boating participants.
According to the Marine
Industries Association of
Florida,"marine recreation
represents a total economic
output of over $14.1 billion
and for over 180,000 jobs in
the state." Based upon this
output, recreational boating is

are said to symbolize man's
short stay on earth and to mark
the way for the departed souls
to find their way home. More
lights, in the form of fireworks,
will bring the evening to a close.
The Morikami Museum and
Japanese Gardens will be closed
during the day until 5 p.m. on
Saturday. Festival admission is

festival. There also will be sever-
al on-site food vendors.
The Bon Festival is held rain

shoes and clothing. The weather
will be hot, rain or shine.


Florida's largest industry.
Unfortunately, according to
the University of Florida,
publicly assessable marinas in
Florida are being displaced by
private land uses, in particu-
lar, condominium develop-
ment which converts existing
public docks into private use.
