Small hole in



Legacy deal


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Within the 10-acre property
the city of Venice wants to pur-
chase for $7.35 million and call
Legacy Park is a small building
whose future is in limbo.
The Venice Nokomis Rotary
Club controls a 6,000-square-
foot parcel in the southeast cor-
ner of the property just west of
the city water tower off East
Venice Avenue.
The site was placed into a
trust controlled by Venice-
Nokomis Rotary Club in the late
1940s by Bob Baynard, who was
president of the then-Venice
Nokomis Bank, according to
club member Grady Hough.
Under the agreement, he
said, the club agreed to use the
parcel for youth services or it
would revert to the city. It spon-
sored the Boy Scout troop that
used it for many years.
A former scoutmaster, Hough
held scout meetings in the three-
room building from 1962-66. It
had two storage rooms for Boy
Scout Troop 28's camping and
sports equipment, and a meet-
ing area. Back then it had no
running water or lavatory facili-
ties, only electricity, Hough
recalled.
Troop 28 no longer exists. The
hut was used by another Boy
Scout group off and on as recent-
ly as five years ago, Hough said.
"The building is in limbo," he
said. "How it's going to come
out, I don't know."
The club would like to see it
parlayed in some kind of proper-


ty swap to provide a place for
youth activities elsewhere in the
city, said attorney Dan Boone,
also a club member. But it was
unable to reach an agreement
with the Trust for Public Lands,
which has had the parcel under
contract for the last year.
As Legacy Park, the land
would serve as a conversion
point and trailhead for Legacy
Trail, the Venetian Waterway
Park, the city boat ramp and the
Venice Train Depot, which
serves as a SCAT transportation
hub.
Still interested
A deal for the Rotary tract is
still possible, said Doug Hatta-
way, project director for TPL, on
Monday
"We were unable to work out
an arrangement that would pro-
vide a transfer of the Rotary Club
piece at the same time as the 10-
acre piece," he said, "but all par-
ties are still interested in working
out a satisfactory resolution as
the property's donation to the
Rotary Club was intended to
benefit youth activities, particu-
larly Boy Scouts, if feasible."
He was hoping the Rotary
Club would donate the land to
the city for the park.
"At this point, continuing
work on the Rotary piece will be
re-evaluated if we are successful
with the primary piece,"
Hattaway said.
Rotary Club president Joe
Pokorney, who met with
Hattaway, was out of town and
unavailable for comment.

The completion date for
the U.S. 41 road project
between Venice and State
Road 681 is now January
2009.
BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

If a completed U.S. 41 Noko-
mis road project is on your
Christmas list, you're going to be
disappointed ... again.
Barring any more unforeseen
problems, the anticipated time
frame for having all six lanes of
U.S. 41 from Bird Bay to State
Road 681 fully open is mid- to
late January 2009.
Even then, there might be
some off-road things left to be
done, but the roadway should be
fully paved and open, according
to Ken Nelson, U.S. 41 Nokomis
public information officer.
Hubbard Construction began
the 650-day, 3-mile project to
widening U.S. 41 to six lanes in
the first week of January 2006. In
December 2006, the company
requested an 80-day extension

as the project was 141 days
behind schedule. Major delays
were blamed on drainage con-
tractors and gas and water com-
panies.
In February 2007, a new con-
tract completion date of Nov. 22,
2007, was set. However, extenu-
ating circumstances, including
work shutdowns due to incle-


ment weather and other factors
beyond Hubbard's control, have
added more than another year to
the project.
Following local retailer com-
plaints about delays causing
business losses in early 2007, the

Taxes owed on city hangar


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The county intends to put a
lien on a city-owned airport
hangar at Venice Municipal
Airport in an attempt to collect
back taxes due because the
property got an improper ex-
emption.
Chuck Schmieler, president
of the Venice Airport Business
Association, built the hangar on
property leased from the city,
then donated it to the city as
required in the contract, retain-
ing the use of it.
According to a letter Sarasota
County Property Appraiser Jim
Todora sent to the city, "the
property encumbered by the
lease to Mr. Schmieler received
an ad valorem tax exemption to
which it was not entitled for the
years 2001 through 2007."
"In 2003 Mr. Schmieler con-


structed a hangar on the leased
property which he uses for his
private enjoyment and thus is
not entitled to ad valorem tax
exemption."
A taxpayer brought it to the
attention of the county noting
"the premises was leased to a
private individual," said Todora
in the letter to the city, dated
Nov. 4.
Because the city owned the
land and the building, it would
have filed for the exemption.
"The city ofVenice, as proper-
ty owner, was responsible for
notifying this office of the
changes in the use of the leased
premises," Todora wrote.
Todora said the county's
intent is to record a lien against
the property within 30 days.
The proposed tax lien against
the city can carry a 15-percent
interest rate and includes a 50-
percent penalty on the tax for


each year.
The proposed settlement
offered in Todora's letter adds up
to $9,676.62 in back taxes and
$4,838 in penalties. The property
has a value of $158,100 for 2007.
Under review
Todora's office conducted a
review of its records and carried
out new inspections of all the
current leases at the airport.
"What seems to have hap-
pened here is that we didn't
receive a lease when it was exe-
cuted," said Luis Guinart, with
the appraiser's office. "We did
receive a copy of the (building)
permit to the city of Venice for
the airport property. My opinion
is that it was an oversight of the
city. This is the only one not
accounted for that was taxable."
It was news to Schmieler.

Kate Wight doesn't know what
it's like to carry 65 pounds of
gear on her back in the 120-

scrambled up and down
Afghanistan's rocky terrain,
chasing terrorists who strike
without warning from ambush.
But she's read all about it.
She hasn't lain wounded in a

knows that books have the
power to transport readers to
another place and time for at
least a little while, thereby easing
their pain and temporarily ban-
ishing their boredom.

Venice Theatre wins state conference again


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


When the Florida
Theatre Conference ended
Saturday night in Lakeland,
the Venice Theatre had
taken 50 percent of the
awards in the community
theater category.
Venice took first place
for its festival production
of Moliere's "School for
Wives." The theater also
won the award for Best
Overall Design, which
includes Nick Hartman's
costumes, Chris McVicker's
lighting scheme and the set


design by Steve Mitchell,
with the assistance of Barry
Sullivan, Jim Lovett and
Patty Avery
Amber Suleskey won
the Best Actress Award for
her performance as Agnes.
"She was pretty special
up there," said Murray
Chase, the theater's artistic
director, "and to be just 18
years old."
Chase directed the fes-
tival version of the play,
which was presented last
season in the Pinkerton
Theatre as a Stage II show.
"I think we can be bet-
ter and we will be," he said.


"But we had a very solid
run. It's a play that you will
never find the end of."
The next production
will be March 5-7, as part
of the Southeastern
Theatre Conference in
Birmingham, Ala. States in
the region include Ala-
bama, Florida, Georgia,
Kentucky, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee,
Virginia and West Virginia.
"We won't be making
any major changes," Chase
said. "I might restage one
or two moves. We'll be
adding more nuances."
It will cost the Venice


Theatre about $9,000 to
enter the regional event.
The theater will receive
$500 from the Florida
Theatre Conference and
will earn some of the rest
from ticket sales for preview
performances inVenice.
The winner and run-
ner-up of the regional fes-
tival will advance to the
national festival in
Tacoma, Wash., June 23-
27. National competitions
are held only in odd-num-
bered years.
Should the theater
advance to the national
conference, it will receive


$1,000 from the regional
association and $3,000
from the national associa-
tion toward expenses,
which Chase estimates at
$18,000 to transport cast,
crew and set. The set and
costumes would be driven
out a week ahead in the
theater's truck.
To level the playing
field, each theater must
present its entry in less


than one hour plus 10
minutes or less to set the
stage and a like amount of
time for tear-down.
Everything needed for
the set must be contained
in a 10-by-10-foot square
at the side of the stage and
must be returned there
when the performance
has been completed.

Foreclosure grant on county agenda


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
Commission will consider
today (Wednesday) how to
best allocate funding for
the $7.1 million Federal
Neighborhood Stabiliza-
tion Grant.
The commission meets
at 9 a.m. at the Sarasota
County Administration
Center, 1660 Ringling
Blvd., Sarasota.
The county is eligible
for the grant from the U.S.
Department of Housing
and Urban Development.
According to HUD, these
funds "will provide emer-
gency assistance to state
and local governments to
acquire and redevelop
foreclosed properties that
might otherwise become
sources of abandonment
and blight within their
communities."
County staff will make a
presentation to the com-
missioners about the grant
application for this fund-
ing and seek authorization
to submit the application
to HUD.
On Oct. 14, Deputy
County Administrator
Susan Scott, flanked by
Donald Hadsell, director


of housing and communi-
ty development, told com-
missioners there was an
additional pool of funds at
the state level totaling
$91 million in all-- admin-
istered by the Department
of Community Affairs from
which the county might
also draw aid.
"We will bring you data
to show you where those
bank-owned properties
are, in a price range that
you all are interested in
pursuing," Scott said.
Eligible uses for the
HUD funds would include:
Establishing financing
mechanisms to buy fore-
closed homes
Purchasing and reha-
bilitating such homes for
resell or rental
Demolishing blighted
structures


Redeveloping demol-
ished or vacant properties
'No such thing'
According to Scott, all
funds must benefit fami-
lies with incomes at or
below 120 percent of the
county median income,
and 25 percent of the
funds must be used to
benefit those at or below
50 percent of the county
median income.
In October, Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton saw
the purported windfall
with a skeptical eye.
"This sounds really
good politically, but in the
real world market it's not
really that great of a deal,"
Thaxton said, "because we
are now giving the banks a
financial award for kicking
people out on the streets


More
Choices of
Dinettes,
Stools, Bars
& Pub Tables
345222


rather than working with l i
them, causing more
homes to be vacated."
Thaxton was con-
cerned HUD's offer might
become the commission's
burden, forcing it to over-
see numerous properties
whose obligations, repairs,
liability and insurance
might prove costly even in
the short term. a0 t0
"There's no such thing Davis Bev
as free real estate at all,"
Thaxton said. "And keeping D
the properties vacant is tii
going to do nothing but
prolong the economic
stagnation and decline that
we're in." i

$5 million for local troops and vets


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Tuesday marked the
beginning of an initiative
to benefit both current
troops and veterans of the
conflicts in Afghanistan
and Iraq.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice has
received a $5 million grant
to assist Southwest and
Central Florida military
personnel now serving or
who have formerly served
in these hot spots. The
funding comes from the
Iraq-Afghanistan Deploy-
ment Impact Fund, which
is administered by the Los
Angeles-based California
Community Foundation.
According to CCF's Web
site, the IADIF was created
in 2006 "in response to a
multitude of unmet needs
arising among the 1.5 mil-
lion military service men
and women and their fam-


ilies" as a direct result of
their deployment.
The IADIF has also
funded a few select orga-
nizations to engage in re-
search, advocacy and pub-
lic awareness initiatives,
such as:
Iraq and Afghanistan
Veterans of America
Injured Marine Sem-
per Fi Fund
Jacob's Light Founda-
tion Inc.
Tragedy Assistance
Program for Survivors
Teri Hansen, president
and CEO of GCCFV said
the IADIF has distributed
more than $200 million to
more than 50 nonprofits
across the country. That
money, she said, has
helped furnish such ser-
vices as counseling, child
care, transportation, emer-
gency financial assistance,
support and recovery pro-
grams for military person-
nel and their families.


In addition, financial
assistance through the
IADIF will be aimed at
helping military families
deal with myriad issues
ranging from repercus-
sions of loved ones killed
in action to the physical
and mental health of those
returning from the con-
flicts.
"Florida is home to 11
active military bases and
a host of other military
installations," Hansen
said. "We are honored to
be asked to help support
those who are coura-
geously serving our coun-
try"
Hanson said GCCFV,
founded in 1995, is the
largest community foun-
dation in Florida, with
assets of nearly a quarter
of a billion dollars. It has
awarded some $80 million
in grants to groups in-
volved with arts and cul-
ture, health and human


services, education, civic
affairs and the environ-

IHOP to provide 100 jobs


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


The opening of the new Inter-
national House of Pancakes restaurant
in Venice will create more than 100
jobs.
"During this difficult period of eco-
nomic downturn when everyone is
hunting for jobs, we are proud to still be
building and putting so many people
into work," said Dan Enea, president
and CEO of Sunshine Restaurant
Partners, the area franchisee.


Opening is planned for Monday,
Nov. 17, for the IHOP restaurant, 4369
South Tamiami Trail, next to Applebee's
in South Venice. At a total cost of
$800,000, the IHOP has risen from the
ashes of the former Durango's, which
closed following a fire two years ago.
Completion of construction and final
inspections should occur early next
week.
Fifteen-year IHOP employee Dee
Roughton is managing the new loca-
tion, having been at the company's
Punta Gorda restaurant for the past 10


years.
"The store looks beautiful, and we're
pleased to be opening before season,"
said Enea.
There will be seating for 160, and a
separate meeting room for parties, pre-
sentations and small events. The full-
service restaurant will initially open
from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily for break-
fast, lunch and dinner, serving pan-
cakes, egg breakfasts, omelets, burgers,
chicken and steak.

Early 'birds catch the events

MAINSTREET COLUMNIST


It's so nice to see our part-
time residents returning.
The sidewalks are filled and
the downtown is busy again.
It is especially fun to see so
many people bring their
dogs to stroll the beautiful
avenues.
I want to mention how
wonderful the Venice High
School Drama Club mem-
bers were to dress up as
Scarecrows and raise money
for All Faiths Food Bank at
the Lions Club Halloween
Parade. Alex Tapia, Jessica
Tapia, Ariel Drost, Will
Forsahe, Lydia Subic and
Ariella Schrienk raised
$134.30 while Jill Wright
chaperoned.
There has been a change
of date for the Christmas
Walk; it is now scheduled
for Thursday, Dec. 4, from
5:30-8 p.m. Santa will be
available for photos in the
breezeway of Miami
Avenue. There will be lights
and music throughout the
downtown area, and don't
forget that merchants give
out sweet treats to give you
enough energy to walk all
the avenues.
The return of the Third
Thursday Stroll is proving
very popular. We had a won-
derful turnout Thursday,
Oct. 16, for the first stroll of
the season. Nov. 20 and Dec.
18 are the dates for the next
two strolls. Look out for
more and more entertain-
ment on all the avenues, as
merchants on Nokomis,
Miami and Tampa are plan-
ning music and entertain-
ment along with the mer-


chants from all three blocks
of West Venice Avenue.
Saturday, Nov. 29, from 7-
9 p.m. is the 33rd annual
Holiday Parade. The Sons of
Italy are again sponsoring
this great parade in con-
junction with the city of
Venice.
Televised live and shown
again at two later dates, this
parade brings in more than
50,000 visitors from Sarasota
County and far beyond. Year
after year the Venice Holiday
Parade is proclaimed the
best parade in the county.
You'll be seeing the lawn
chairs go out the day before
the parade so longtime view-
ers can reserve their favorite
watching place.
Another event you will not
want to miss is the Holiday
Boat Parade on Saturday,
Dec. 6. There are wonderful
free viewing areas along the
Venetian Waterway Trail to
see all the local boats decked
out in their holiday lights.
Venice Area Beautification
Inc. holds a fundraising din-
ner and parade viewing right
at its office at the old
Chamber building under the
Hatchett Creek Bridge. You
can give VABI a call for more
information at 207-8224.
On Dec. 19, Venice Main-
Street's Friday Nights Live
Concert will be dedicated to
celebrating Venice Main-
Street Director Pamela
Gallagher's return home.
This concert will start earli-
er than normal, at 6 p.m.
The Cry'n Shames and CPR
will perform, so why not
come downtown, have a
bite to eat, do a bit of
Christmas shopping and
then treat yourself to an
evening of great music?
If you have any questions
about the events I've men-
tioned, please feel free to call
the Venice MainStreet Inc.
office at 484-6722, or log
onto our Web site, www.
venicemainstreet.com, and

How's your



Internet security?


KELLI TARALA
COMPUTER COLUMNIST


A lot of people living in
Sarasota County have
Internet access in their
homes. This marvel of
modern technology allows
us to read and reply to e-
mail, shop outline and
complete school projects.
We access the "infor-
mation superhighway" via
cable modems, Digital
Subscriber Line service or
other high-speed access
devices. These connec-
tions to the Internet are
considered always turned
on. This means your com-
puter is always visible on
the Internet. It is like hav-
ing the windows and
doors to your home
always open without locks
or shades.
Almost 25 years after the
introduction of the per-
sonal computer, research
has shown that a majority
of U.S. Internet users are
failing to use even the most
basic of Internet security
tools. This research, con-
ducted by the National
Cyber Security Alliance,
was used to promote
National Cyber Security
Awareness Month.
The research indicated
that there is a sizeable gap
between the protection
that Internet users think
they have and what is
actually installed on their
PCs.
Even if you are only
connected to the Internet
some of the time, the
information on your com-
puter is vulnerable. While
it is easy to think that no
one could possibly be
interested in your old
home computer, it is sim-
ply not the case.
Having an Internet con-
nection always on is con-
venient for us, and it is also
convenient for cybercrimi-
nals. Cybercriminals from
around the world can
sweep through thousands
of random addresses on
the Internet looking for
computers that they can
exploit.
What they can do is
really quite scary. With-
out any visible signs or
warnings, cybercriminals
can infiltrate your comput-
er system to obtain per-
sonal information about
you or to use your com-
puter to attack other
computers.
In the spirit of National
Cyber Security Awareness
Month, here are some tips
to securing your home
computers. More tips can


also be found at www.
staysafeonline.info.
Use an antivirus soft-
ware program and be sure
to keep your antivirus
software up to date. Many
antivirus packages sup-
port automatic updates
of virus definitions. Anti-
virus software scans
incoming e-mail and files
for malicious code by
comparing files to virus
definitions.
Use a firewall. A fire-
wall is a protection tool
that guards against intru-
sions from the outside.
Firewalls block communi-
cations from and to
sources you do not permit.
It is not important to
understand how firewalls
work. It is important to
know why you need one.
Some operating systems,
like Microsoft XP and
Apple's Mac OS X Leopard,
come with a built-in fire-
wall. Verify that the firewall
has been turned on and
updated regularly. Check
your online "Help" feature
for specific instructions.
Use an anti-spyware
software program and
keep it up to date. Spyware
is software that secretly
gathers information about
you while you are surfing
the Web. Some spyware
gathers information about
passwords and even cred-
it-card numbers.
Antispyware software
works by periodically scan-
ning your computer for
spyware programs, and
then allowing you to
remove any harmful sur-
veillance software found
on your computer. Some
antivirus software contains
antispyware capability.
Don't open unknown
email attachments such as
jokes, games, or ecards.
Malicious code is often
distributed via e-mail by
well meaning people
sending amusing jokes or
enticing programs. If you
must open the attach-
ment, we suggest the fol-
lowing procedure:
1. Be sure your virus
definitions are up to date
(see "Use anti-virus soft-
ware" above).
2. Save the file to your
hard drive.
3. Scan the file using
your antivirus software.
4. Open the file.
Home computers are
favorite targets of crimi-
nals. By following these
basic Internet security
practices, you make it as
difficult as possible for
criminals to access your
home computer and your
family's personal infor-
mation.

WHERE TO
DONATE
Books-A-Million loca-
tions participating in the
Wounded Warriors
Project through Nov. 15
include:
* 4230 South Tamiami
Trail, Venice, 496-8422.
* 6592 South Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota, 922-
7804.
* 1925 Tamiami Trail,
Port Charlotte, 629-


That's why, when local
representatives of the
Wounded Warrior Project
approached her about
doing something in honor
of Veterans Day, she
immediately agreed to
help. Not only that, she
persuaded the managers
of two other Books-A-
Million stores to join with
her in donating a portion
of their proceeds to help
wounded vets.
Through Nov. 15, 10
percent of the sales gener-
ated by Books-A-Million
card holders will help ben-
efit the Wounded Warriors
Project.
The Wounded Warriors
Project was established by
a group of veterans who
were touched by the tragic
stories of wounded service
members who returned
from Afghanistan and Iraq.
The proceeds from the
book drive will help re-
plenish WWP backpacks,
which are filled with es-
sential care items such as
clothing, toiletries, calling
cards, CD players and
playing cards. They are
delivered to the bedsides
of wounded warriors.
"We are really into com-
munity outreach here,"
said Wight. "We've been
doing a lot of outreach
with the schools, but we
haven't had the opportuni-
ty to really expand beyond
that until now."
Giving back
When project volunteer
and Marine Corps veteran
Greg Rineer approached
Wight, he couldn't believe
how quickly she said she'd
help.
"It's almost unprece-
dented that three stores
are jumping in especial-
ly before Christmas," he
said.
Rineer said the stores'
generosity will help hospi-
talized veterans as well as
people looking for holiday
gifts.
"It's a way to put a book
in your uncle's or aunt's
hands and a little bit of
cash in the coffers of the
Wounded Warrior Project,"
he said.
Wight said that the
stores will also set up
tables full of suggested
books for shoppers to
either contribute to or pur-
chase from. Those books
will be donated to veterans
in the Department of
Veterans Affairs hospital in
Tampa. Those who donate
books will also be eligible
to enter their name in a
drawing for autographed
books and gift cards.
Asked why she so
quickly responded to the
Wounded Warriors Project
request, Wight answered
without hesitation.
"I think everybody in
the area and the country
has been touched in some
way by the war," she said,
"so it's just our way of giv-
ing back a little bit."

than 70 workers to the
work. In addition, the
company was working six
days a week and on most
evenings in an effort to
expedite completion.
"The contractor has
committed considerable
resources in an effort to
complete the entire pro-
ject in a timely fashion,"
said Nelson.
Concrete
Recent delays are
attributed by the contrac-
tor to unforeseen con-
crete material under the
Dona Bay and Shakett
Creek bridges, delaying
installation of the con-
crete pilings for two new
bridges. The concrete was
about 8 feet under the
water and an additional
10 feet underground,
making it difficult, if not
impossible, to project the
true impact on the pro-
ject, as well as the time-
line.
Final form
In its final form, all
lanes will remain the way
they are currently in-
stalled. There is no provi-
sion for a central island
on the east side of the
intersection at Laurel
Road, Nelson said. Cen-
trally located plastic stan-
chions have stood at this
intersection for three
years.
On the western Laurel
Road approach to the
intersection the traffic
pattern will remain as it
currently is: one through
lane, one right-turn lane
and one left-turn lane.

the TPL cash-purchase

TPL will complete its pur-

it to the city.
City to front
Under the arrangement,
the city will front the entire
$7.35 million for the pur-

Hattaway helped broker
the deal by assisting the city
in its grant application and

city of Venice purchase
valuable land resources.
Now that the grant is
secured, Hattaway is antici-

OPINION


OUR VIEW



Red lights have county seeing green


W e've devoted a fair amount of
space over the past year argu-
ing against Sarasota County's
efforts to start a program to
catch drivers running red lights by
installing cameras at selected intersec-
tions.
It's no surprise, though, that county
commissioners approved such a pro-
gram. The possibility of safety benefits
is always compelling, even if the claims
seem flimsy.
All along, county commissioners
have expressed a belief that red-light
cameras will provide more safety at
intersections, even though national
data on these programs indicate that
may not be the case. They simplyjoined
the red-light bandwagon rolling across
the state from Manatee to Hillsborough
to Collier County.
Maybe they're correct. Maybe this
new program will save lives and injuries


from horrible T-bone crashes.
But maybe it will also increase
injuries from rear-end crashes when
people slam on their brakes when see-
ing yellow. Most studies indicate it will;
fortunately, those accidents are general-
ly far less serious.
But citizens hoping for great changes
may be disappointed. Again, the studies
show only slight changes can be expect-
ed, maybe not even for the better. In
addition, the cameras will be installed
at only 10 intersections all of them
county roads, since state law forbids
these cameras on state roads.
Most sites will be in North County,
but one South County spot in the coun-
ty's top 10 is the intersection of River
Road and Winchester Boulevard in
Englewood. Over a five-year span, that
intersection saw seven right-angle
crashes and eight rear-end crashes. If
the national trends hold here, we may


see a few less right-angle crashes and a
few more rear-end crashes after the
lights go up. Nothing too dramatic.
What certainly will be created is a
new film-and-fine industry. Depending
on the final shape of the program, a
vendor will be paid $540,000-$675,000
to run the system and send out viola-
tion notices to motorists whose rear
license plates are captured on video.
Sheriff's office costs could come to
another $220,000, the clerk's office
$100,000 and a hearing officer $50,000.
This will be funded through individ-
ual violators, seen on tape, being told to
pay $125 a shot.
One oddity comes with program
enforcement. Since this is a civil fine,
the county has no real enforcement
powers. It will simply file a lien on the
property of car owners who refuse to
pay, which means a violator would have
a small lien when he sells his house. The


hope is that people will feel intimidated
when they receive the fine in the mail,
so they'll pay up. Most do.
Those who don't own property,
though, can simply thumb their noses
and scoff at the law without fear of any
punishment. The county can do noth-
ing to make them pay, other than bom-
barding them with threatening letters.
This is a program based on video evi-
dence, intimidation and high fines,
most of which will go to a company that
runs the program, and county agencies.
Anything left after the initial cut of $1
million will go to the county's general
coffers. Since it's estimated the program
could take in more than $2 million, that
may prove to be a tidy sum, especially in
times when budgets are tight.
It's hard to say no to programs that
promise to improve public safety- and
harder still when those programs may
pay off handsomely.


Making good from bad


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


You all have said it, I am
sure: enough is enough.
You have said, I am sick of
the politics, the phone
calls, the lies and all those
ugly signs all over the
place.
I have never been able
to understand why politi-
cians are allowed to pol-
lute our landscape with
signs while others aren't
unless they pay for the
privilege. They trash the
place up for three months
or so every year. We can
hope for more control of
political signs, but since
they make the rules, that is
unlikely.
At least in picking the
signs up there were some
bright spots this year. I was
impressed with John Os-
mulski, who took his signs
down the night of the elec-
tion after the polls closed.
The Knight campaign had
almost all of its signs down
on Wednesday. In fact, all
the local politicians got
theirs down fast while
losers in some of the coun-
ty races have taken longer.
Understand, of course,
that politicians have differ-
ent rules than everyone
else, so we will have signs
whether we want them or
not. But I wondered what
we could do with all those
signs to reuse them. There
had to be some good use of
the 50,000 to 100,000 signs
that clutter every roadway,
including residential
streets in our county.
I thought maybe I could
get Tom Knight's 3,000
yard signs and wallpaper
my whole house. It is a
very washable material
and would act as insula-
tion, and who wouldn't
want Tom Knight, the pro-
tector of all, all over your
walls? It might even scare a
robber away. Okay, that
would be weird.
So I was driven to find a
way to make some use of
these. I called the county
and it had no fresh ideas
other than to say the ones
that might never get used
again, like maybe Chris-
tine Jennings', would go to
the landfill.
I called Jimmy Dorsett,
longtime Venetian sign
maker, and asked if he
knew of a way to recycle
them. He put me on to
Plastic Man, Jim Chapin,
who lives in Placida.


It turned out that Plastic
Man recycled 5,000 pounds
of political signs for Keep
Charlotte Beautiful in the
last election and more than
that for Pinellas. I think the
supervisor of elections or
KCB gave candidates a
form to fill out whether
they wanted their signs
recycled at the end or if
they would save them for
their next run. I think it also
said where to take them.
Once he gets them, Jim
melts them down and
makes benches out of
them. Two and a half tons
of signs made about 20
benches. Wouldn't it be
nice if they could be used
for SCAT locations where
there is no place to sit?
I thought maybe non-
profits could get in on it,
but Jim could only see that
work if the candidates paid
nonprofits to take up their
signs as he pays nothing
for the material, which is a
cheap plastic but makes
great benches.
New State Sen. Nancy
Detert, being her witty self,
wasn't sure she wanted
someone sitting on her,
anyway.
The good news is that
Sarasota County Director
of Solid Waste Larry Ken-
nedy was excited to hear
about a way to get these
out of the landfill and is to
follow up, if not for this
election certainly the next.
I know Knight was looking
at using Plastic Man this
year. Maybe Sandra Wash-
ington of Keep Sarasota
County Beautiful might
follow her Charlotte coun-
terpart's lead.
Now you can feel just a
little bit better about those
signs. You might even sit
on them one day.
******

By's Crack: Do you
realize this last election
cost more money than
the War of 1812 and

casualties?

Night Live."

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Where's it come from, and go?


Editor:
Now that the election is behind us, I hope city
council will start addressing all the issues facing the
city. This past year council spent an inordinate
amount of time on issues that were peculiar to the
"island."
As an "off-island" resident, not only do I feel that
I'm not being adequately represented on city council,
but that an disproportionate amount of the city's rev-
enue is being expended on the island.
As a starter, city council should provide Venice citi-
zens with the amount of property taxes, sales taxes,
total revenue, capital expenditures, and operating
expenses for 2005-08 for the island and "off-island."
With this information, I believe the citizens of
Venice would see the necessity of eliminating at-large
representation and installing district or precinct rep-
resentation on city council.


Will the shots
never stop?

Editor:
This is in response to
Bob Vedder's column of
Nov. 5, in which he includ-
ed "By's Crack" regarding
Bush. The day after the
election and still taking a
cheap shot at Bush.

umn on page 11A. It's time

want to congratulate Kit
McKeon on his victory. On


Don Henry
Venice


behalf of all my support-
ers, including those who
worked diligently behind
the scenes, I want to wish
Kit the very best of luck. He
has inherited a full plate
and will need all our sup-
port. And on that note, I
wish to make one impor-
tant and encouraging ob-
servation about this year's
campaign effort.
To say this election year
was pivotal or highly con-
tested would be an under-
statement. Although we
did not prevail this year,
we fought the good fight.
And I want to commend
both of my opponents for
staying on point, running
fact-based campaigns and
bringing the true issues to
the people. We all had
something to offer and the
people ofVenice have spo-
ken.
This election outcome


has reinforced my faith in
the democratic process,
and I very much look for-
ward to taking all the
lessons learned from this
campaign into the 2009
election season.
Thanks to all for your
support, dedication and
commitment. And may
God bless.

All help needed
in Afghanistan

Editor:
I voted on the first day
of early voting. The line
was moving briskly at the
Robert L. Anderson Ad-
ministration Center. I
completed my civic duty
in less than a half hour.
I struck up a conversa-
tion with a fellow voter. He
stated he lived overseas
and cannot trust the mail
ballot system, which from
his experience is returned


to the supervisor of elec-
tions too late. He had
flown in from Afghanistan
to cast his ballot.
After instructing him
how the paper ballot sys-
tem works, I remarked that
if things go right here he
may have more troops on
the ground soon. He said
things are worse than
when we first intervened.
Not only do they need
troops, but they need
infrastructure to support
them; housing, security,
water supply, logistical
support, food service,


security, administrative
staff, interpreters, security
- everything.

Venice made
right choice

Editor:
After reading the elec-
tion story quoting Mr.
Osmulski, I salute the vot-
ers of Venice for electing
someone else. His com-
ments reveal the type of
arrogance found in all too
many politicians, suggest-
ing that he knows better
than the voters what is
in their best interests.
Nonsense.
This is the type of per-
son who should be kept as
far away from public office
as possible.

Relief after

"You must be joking!" Four
years ago I begged, "Be

You could be very sorry."

More like an anti-machine'


Is there a political ma-
chine in Venice? Pardon
me while I stop chuckling.
The one-word answer is
"no." The closest thing we
have is in hibernation, but
not dead.
First, let's take a look at
what characterizes a polit-
ical machine, (sources:
various dictionaries and
Wikipedia.) The key ingre-
dients include: an organi-
zation with leadership,
often one "boss"; a pot of
money at the disposal of
the machine, the source of
which is generally contri-
butions by people wanting
to do business with gov-
ernment on favored terms;
distribution of patronage
to gain support and votes;
and block-by-block or
precinct-by-precinct orga-
nizations, indebted to the
machine.
Do the three council
members elected last year
- Ed Martin, Sue Lang
and Ernie Zavodnyik -
qualify? Let's see.
They have no political
organization. They have
no pot of money. They
don't even have a political
action committee, such as
that previously headed by
C.J. Fishman, Citizens for
Quality Government.
The new council mem-
bers have no "boss." They
have no patronage. They
have no precinct workers.
Does not look like a "well-
oiled machine" or a
machine at all?
Furthermore, the three
accepted no campaign
contributions from people
who would appear before


council with material
business interests that
could be affected by coun-
cil decisions e.g., sup-
pliers, consultants, con-
tractors, developers, etc. or
the legal teams generally
representing them. That is
the opposite of what ma-
chines do, or what has
been the pattern in the
past. Individuals, as inde-
pendent citizens, not as
elected officials, can sup-
port candidates.
What do they have
then? They have citizens
who voted for them
because they had a mes-
sage that reflected what
citizens wanted. In other
words, they identified
issues that people cared
about, when others did
not bingo!
This year, people happy
with the progress the new
council members (includ-
ing Council Member John
Moore, who it may be
noted drew no opponent)
have made on compre-
hensive planning and
increased opportunity to
participate by expressing
their views voted for Kit
McKeon, who they per-
ceived would strengthen
the council through his
background in aviation,
business and community
planning.
What they have is a gen-
uine grassroots political
movement, with ordinary
citizens with no financial
interests volunteering to
help people they believe
in. It is a bottom-up move-
ment of voters, the oppo-
site of a top-down ma-
chine collecting money
with an obvious hope of
financial gain.
Making money legally is
not wrong; it is part of our
great system. But when all
members of an elected
government have the sup-
port of a PAC organized by
people with an obvious
financial interest, that is a
warning sign to citizens,
which people in Venice
recognized and did not
ignore.

I have gotten to know
C.J and his always gracious
wife, Wendy, and he has a
good sense of humor
(sometimes a little over the
top) and a commitment to
charitable causes. In short,
he is not a "devil." He is, in
my opinion, however, tone
deaf when it comes to pol-
itics in Venice.
He is quoted as saying,
"For the last eight years the
Venice Taxpayers League
and Venice Neighbor-
hoods Coalition painted
the CQG as this group of
money-hungry individuals
who are controlling coun-
cil and buying their way
into elections, and that
was just not factually cor-
rect. There was no evi-
dence to support that
(claim). Everything we've
done was quite transpar-
ent.
"Now the people in
office are doing what they
accused us of doing. I find
that very ironic."
As I hope I have just
demonstrated, the people
in office are not doing any-
thing that even faintly
resembles the CQG: no
organization, no money
fund, no contributions
from people with material
business before council,
etc.
What C.J. and his
friends do not seem to
understand is that they are
out of touch with the peo-
ple of Venice. Even two
elections did not seem to
help some folks realize
that they must get in touch
- that is, to coin a phrase,
change.

umn as a private citizen.

So who won, Obama or McCain?


Silence. Why is it that you print all the results of the
local election, but not a word about the national elec-
tion? I know things have to be counted and everything,
but didn't all the polls close at the same time for you to
be able to print that ahead of time? I would like you to
clarify that for us.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The only news coverage we had of the
entire presidential election, start to finish, was the visits of
McCain and Obama to Sarasota County. News coverage of
national and international news is outside the scope of our
mission as a community newspaper.


Over taxes. Obama
does not understand the
impact of his own tax
package. For example, if
you are a retired person
here on the Sun Coast liv-
ing on about $50,000 a
year, with most of that
income coming from gains
on investments you made
while you were still work-
ing, you will pay more
income taxes. Why?
Because Obama has
included raising the capital
gains tax from the current
level of 15 percent to 20
percent or even 28 percent
as part of his income-tax
plan. So contrary to what
Obama is saying, some
people earning less than
$250,000 per year will be
paying more taxes and it
may be you. And another
example: Obama has
included a tax increase on
all businesses with income
of more than $250,000 per
year. Most of those compa-
nies are already paying the
second-highest tax rate in
the world. When he raises
their taxes, their manufac-
turing operations in the
United States will become
even less competitive than

EMT. The injury seemed
pretty serious.
We should be able to
have an ambulance at the
games. The station is prob-
ably close enough by law
for response purposes, but
with 5,000 people or so in
attendance at the games, it
just makes sense to have
an ambulance closer. The
Indians are very exciting to
watch, and I wouldn't be
surprised if someone had a
heart attack.

Rush hour. Boy, I could
hardly wait until Nov. 5 to
get here so I could turn on
radio at noon just to listen
to Rush Limbaugh rant
and rave about Barack
Obama being elected pres-
ident and how terrible it's
going to be for our country.
That was the same hateful
message he tried to claim
with Bill Clinton when he
was elected in 1992 and he
launched his infamous
campaign called "Ameri-
can Held Hostage." Well,
we all know how that
turned out despite his per-
sistent spin on all of this.
But as I recall, we had eight
years of record economic
expansion, a strong dollar,
$30-a-barrel oil, no wars,
rising personal income
and a balanced budget to
boot, with a half-a-trillion
dollar surplus in the end.
Now, if those are some of
the things you can expect
from Obama, then I think
this would a good time for
Rush to keep his mouth
shut and for him to dis-
pense with all the hatred
and lies he spreads on a


daily basis. It's not good for
our country. Yes, I did say
"our." We on the left love
America too. Enough is
enough, Rush.
Unbalanced. Just want-
ed to comment on your
articles that you printed
when McCain was here and
when Obama was here. I
went back and looked at
my paper. On the McCain
headline you put, "McCain
stumps ... and there's
absolutely no pictures. For
the Obama campaign, you
wrote "Obama talks" and
you have a colorful, glossy-
type picture on the front
page. It seems to me that
this is not equivalent cover-
age, and it looks to me like
the paper is leaning in a
more liberal direction than
I realized. I stopped my
subscription to another
newspaper because they
didn't fairly cover informa-
tion. I think you should
consider how you are doing
it here at the Gondolier Sun.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The only
difference in coverage, which
was provided by our daily
papers, was that they sent a
photographer to the Obama
rally and not to the McCain
rally They were able to use an
AP photo with the McCain
story but we don't have an AP
contract.
Bipartisan. This is in
response to the Let'em
Have It article on Oct. 31,
with regard to the political
people yelling at each
other at Sun Fiesta; they
were on both sides. It was-
n't just the McCain people.
The Obama people were
arguing back, so it was a
two-way street.

^ Indians broom their way to elite eight


Intracoastal


time

Some of my best fishing
memories are this time of
the year in the Intracoastal.
When a blustery cold front
comes, that is the time to
fish inside.
I remember one Thanks-
giving afternoon about 10
years ago. I was trying to
catch a few sheepshead on
the beach. All of a sudden
the sea opened up with
thousands of large green-
backs racing for the sand.
Right behind them were
hundreds of 6- to 8-pound
jacks. I had to chase the
tourists away so they would-
n't get hit by the projectiles
of pieces of bait flying
through the air. It was bed-
lam for about three hours.
The next day the jacks
were thick in the Intra-
coastal. When a cold front
arrives in the next three
months, you should fish the
calmer and cleaner waters
of the bays, inlets and
Intracoastal. Some of my
best pompano days have
been when that happens. It
always seems to be better at
an incoming tide.
I've also caught quite a
few sheepies for the same
reason. It doesn't seem to
matter exactly where you go
as long as you go into
calmer and cleaner water.
The best days seem to be a
day or two before the front
and then a day or two after
the front. The day of the
front is the day to watch
fishing shows on television.
My favorite lure for the
jacks is plain and simple. A
silver spoon fished deep. I
forgot to mention another
fish that usually follows into
the Intracoastal bluefish.
They are also suckers for a
spoon.
Of course, my favorite
bait for the sheepies and
pomps is sand fleas and/or
fiddler crabs. My orange col-
ored cooked ones seem to
attract them to the hook.
That's about it for now.
We'll talk again next week.

Hack. His column appears
on Wednesday. Contact him

The Indians football team is on the cusp of
joining an elite fraternity of undefeated
teams at Venice High School, but they're
going to have to get there without their star
tailback.
Senior Dri Archer went down with an
undetermined shoulder injury in the first
half of Venice's 56-13 win over North Port
High School Friday. Word quickly spread
to the visitors' stands at The Preserve that
Archer had a partially fractured clavicle
(collarbone). However, after an X-ray on
Monday, coaches and Archer maintained
Tuesday that the injury is a sprained AC
joint. The AC joint is what allows the arm
full range of motion above the head.
No matter the injury, the Indians are going
to have to face Booker High School in the reg-
ular season finale Friday without their rush-
ing leader.
Venice head coach John Peacock said he
hopes to have Archer back in time for the
regional quarterfinal game against Cape
Coral High School Nov. 21.
According to Dr. Joanne Fava, D.C., who is
not treating Archer and is not familiar with
his specific injury, a non-complicated AC
sprain could be fully healed in seven to 14
days. Fava added that a partial clavicle frac-
ture could be completely healed in two to
four weeks.
So, regardless of what the actual injury is,
hope abounds for Archer's return by the first
round of the playoffs.

Venice's Whitney Steranko makes a serve against St. Petersburg Lakewood
High School. The Indians swept the Spartans in the Region 5A-3 semifinals
Tuesday in the Teepee.


The Venice High School volley-
ball team proved that it takes
more than one weapon to get
through the postseason.
The Indians swept St.
Petersburg Lakewood High
School 25-14, 25-17, 25-12 in the
Region 5A-3 semifinals Tuesday
in the Teepee. Lakewood's one-
dimensional net attack was not
enough to get by the Indians.
"Their weapon is to swing and
block," Venice head coach Brian
Wheatley said. "We had to try to
get the ball past the first range of
defense and we did that."
The Indians (22-8) used multi-
ple offensive weapons to get past
6-foot-1 Spartan freshman
Berkley Whaley, who finished
with a team-high 11 kills. Venice
junior setter Taylor Capasso
spread the ball all over the floor,
and the end result was five play-
ers with at least five kills. Capasso
finished with four of her own.
"You can trust everyone now,"
Capasso said. "I think we've really
become a team, we can trust that
everyone is going to get the job
done."
Added Wheatley: "Capasso was
unbelievable tonight. She has
turned into a fabulous setter. She
gets her hands on every single
ball. Not only that, but we're dish-
ing it out all over the place. We're
basically running three hitters
every time. She's really grown into
herself this year."
Emily Daniels was able to ben-
efit from her setter's performance.


ON THE WEB
Log on to venicegondolier.com Friday for
an in-depth scouting report on Venice's
opponent this week, Booker High School.
Story Scouting the Tornadoes.


In the meantime, the Indians must move
forward as though Archer will not play. Junior
Rashad McRae, sophomore Josh Boyle, junior
Justin Grant and freshman Jihad Williams will
be the running-back-by-committee unless
one clearly steps up.
"Without Dri, we're going to miss the long
runs, the speed and the mismatches we get,
not doubt," Peacock said. "But we're still a
very good football team and as long as we
don't put it on the ground, I don't see us get-
ting beat."
Peacock revealed after practice Tuesday
that Williams and Grant, who are half both-
ers, have emerged as the leaders of that pack
of four.
"It's going to be a good competition,"
Williams said. "It's going to be pretty tense
all week, really for the rest of the season
with whatever is happening with Dri's
sprain."
Added Grant: "Doing three things (safety,
wide receiver and running back) is going to
be more on my plate. I'm ready to run it, but
I'm just going to have to feel it in a game."
Junior quarterback Trey Burton has com-
plete confidence in the four tailbacks work-
ing out in practice.
"Any one of them can come in," he said.


The junior outside hitter didn't
lead the team in kills, but did finish
with nine in just 15 attempts for a
.600 hitting percentage.
"They were definitely giving
me the line," Daniels said. "Then
when I started to hit line, the
libero moved over. So after I hit
line a couple of times I switched
to angle and that worked for me."
Junior outside hitter Dorothy
Rahal led Venice with 11 kills.
Junior middle hitters Jillian Allen
and Whitney Steranko combined
for 11 kills as well. Junior outside
hitter Autumn Duyn led Venice
with 21 digs, followed by Capasso
with 18.
On the Spartans' side of the
net, no player aside from Whaley
cracked five kills. Defensively,
Lakewood (22-5) relies heavily on
the block. But Venice was ready
for it. The Spartans finished with
just three team blocks.
"They have probably one of
the biggest blocks we've seen all
year," Wheatley said. "We were
right there covering. That's one of
the things we worked on all week.
We had a big, old Gatorade lid (in
practice) and we hit into the lid
and they had to dig it up and run
the offense out of that. I think our
coaching staff did a great job of
preparing."
Venice took early leads of 4-1,
6-1 and 6-1 in all three games and
never let Lakewood back in. The
Spartans led only once in the
match, a 1-0 advantage in game
two.
The win gives the Indians their

"They've all played running back before so it's
not like this is their first time. I have 100 per-
cent faith in all of them."
With all the shuffling of personnel,
Peacock expects there to be some growing
pains this week against the Tornadoes.
"It's good to get it out of the way now," he
said.
Pursuit of perfection
A win over Booker Friday would make this
Indians team the fourth in school history to
finish the regular season 10-0. Only the 1979,
1980 and 2000 teams have accomplished that
feat.
Legendary former Venice head coach Jim
Powell said that he had a lot of good teams in
his 28 years with the Indians, but very few
great ones.
"We had a lot of good teams, but we'd lose
that one game," he said. "It's so hard to go
undefeated."
Only twice in his storied career did Powell
lead a team to a perfect regular season
record. In that 1979-80 stretch, Venice set a
state record for consecutive regular-season
wins with 33 in a row. That number has since
been surpassed. This year's team has an
opportunity to join the ranks of those teams
as well as the 2000 state championship team.
"They're a lot alike, I think," Powell said of
the 2008 team and his 1979-80 squads.
"They've got a good quarterback and they've
showed me they can come from behind.
They've done it all and they don't have any

Venice swimmers state bound, again


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


For the fourth consecutive
year, Venice High School swim-
mers Mark Cox and Tyler Revels
are headed for the FHSAA Class
3A State Finals.
Cox cemented his berth in
the state meet by winning the
100-yard butterfly in 51.16 at
the Region 3A-2 champi-
onships in Fort Myers. He
secured another spot by plac-
ing third in the 200-yard
freestyle in 1:42.64. Revels qual-
ified by taking third in the 100-
yard breaststroke in 1:00.38 and
fifth in the 200-yard individual
medley in 1:58.39.
Only the top-two finishers in
each individual event automati-
cally qualify for the state finals.
Then the next 16 best times from
all four region meets advance.


Cox and Revels will both be seek-
ing the top spot on the podium in
at least one event Thursday in
Orlando.
"It's always an exciting experi-
ence (at states). You never know
what to expect, but hopefully I
can come out on top this year,"
said Cox, who won the 2006 state
title in the 100-fly.
While Cox is looking for a
return to the pinnacle after a
one-year hiatus (he finished
third in the same event last year),
Revels is hoping to get there for
the first time. He would like to
shave a couple of seconds from
his time in the 100-breast.
"My goal right now is just to go
about two seconds faster than
that, 57-low, 56-high would be
great," Revels said. "Hopefully I
can maybe win. Fifty-six-high
would definitely put a lot of pres-
sure on."


A time like that would also
draw attention from where
Revels wants it most. A sub-57-
second 100-breast is plenty fast
for colleges to come calling.
Revels has expressed interest in
Clemson University and the
University of South Carolina.
Cox has already drawn inter-
est from Virginia Tech and
Florida State University, but is
still shopping around schools
such as the University of Florida
and the University of Georgia.
He might be able to secure more
offers with a sub-50-second 100-
fly. A time that fast would almost
certainly be good enough for a
second state championship.
In their secondary events,
both swimmers should be in a
tough contest. Cox expects the
200-free to be nothing short of a
"dogfight." Each of the top three
from Thursday's meet at Florida


Gulf Coast University figures to
be in the hunt for the title, as will
two more swimmers out of the
Miami region.
"They're really fast," Cox said.
"You never know what to expect
at states, really."
Revels said he would be gun-
ning for the top three in the
200-IM.
Venice's 200-yard medley
relay, which features Cox, Revels,
Derek Pridemore and Zach
Tudor, also qualified for the state
meet by placing fifth in 1:43.90 at
regions. Only the regional cham-
pions and the next 12 best times
in relays qualify for states.
The state meet begins
Thursday at 9 a.m. at the Central
Florida YMCA Aquatic Center in
Orlando. Finals are scheduled for
5:30 p.m.

HAVENS from Page 1B
Still, she found it hard to
turn her back on her art.
"In marketing you find out
what the market wants and
you make a product for that,"
she said. "As an artist, you
want to be free to be individ-
ual."
Havens spent 26 years in
marketing. Then she and
Randy retired to Venice. They
built a home complete with a
studio for Havens. In the stu-
dio looking out on water and
nature, she creates her art.
Havens said it's a wonderful
thing to be back in art.
"One of the things I wanted


CREATIVITY CLASSES WITH SUZANNE HAVENS
Artist Suzanne Havens teaches personal creativity classes at the
Venice Art Center, 390 S. Nokomis Ave. Her classes focus on
mind-mapping your creative influences, locating the size and
shape of your comfort zone and where you want to expand, iden-
tifying the critics and censors in your artistic life, learning and
practicing nonjudgmental feedback of new ideas and new art,
tapping into your free and joyful intuition, creating without precon-
ception, celebrating your unique story and inventing new chapters
for your story and more. For class information, call the art center
at 485-7136.


to do when we moved here
was to be involved in the art
community," she said.
And involved she is. She's
helping the Venice Art Center
with a branding campaign as


well as sharing with board
members some of the strate-
gies she learned in market-
ing.
Tonya Sauppe, president of
the board of directors of the


Venice Art Center, said board
members participated in a
retreat to explore how to get
more people of all ages
involved in the center.
"We also wanted to know
how to get artists or people
who want to become artists, to
be able to do something
unique to them," she said. "We
wanted to find a way to help
artists find their own expres-
sion. That's what Suzanne's
creativity classes are all
about."
Mind-mapping is just one
of the techniques Havens
teaches to put people in touch
with their creativity. Mind-
mapping uses words and ideas

to help people visualize their
own originality.
"Artists need to be true to
themselves and be original,"
Havens said. "Copying is a
wonderful way to learn tech-
niques, but to be a true artist,
you have to be true to your
original self."
Havens believes everyone
is born creative, but it gets
depressed as we grow
because we are judged by so
many people. Havens' classes
are all about removing the
judgment and unleashing the
creativity in people right here
in Venice.

Friendship blooms at Ringling garden
Since 2003, members of The Sarasota Garden Club have helped preserve and
restore beauty to Mable Ringling's secret garden. Now they've moved inside by
designing a floral arrangement for the desk at the entrance to the Ca d' Zan. The
inspiration came from a partnership between Barbara Rao, Suzanne Brickley,
EmilyYaffe and Eleanor Yates of the Garden Club and Ron McCarty, keeper and
curator of the Ca d' Zan. The floral designer, Yaffe, was given a choice of Mable's
vases and Mable's personal pictures to capture the authenticity of the time. The
original silver vase is about 18 inches high and holds primarily hydrangeas, roses
and delphinium. The Garden Club hopes to design another arrangement for the
holiday season beginning at the Ca d' Zan the week before Thanksgiving.

Opera offers first-ever fall production


BY CHIP LUDLOW
ARTS REVIEWER

The Sarasota Opera
opened its first fall opera
season Nov. 7 with a lively
production of Rossini's "The
Barber of Seville" based on
the play of the same name
by the French writer,
Beaumarchais.
The story is about Figaro,
a barber and former servant
of the Count Almaviva. The
Count asks for Figaro's assis-
tance in meeting the beauti-
ful Rosina and marrying her,
not because of his money,
but for himself. Unfor-
tunately, Rosina is kept avir-
tual prisoner by her lecher-
ous ward, Dr. Bartolo, who
also hopes to marry her in
order to get her dowry.
Through various disguis-
es, including that of a
drunken soldier as well as
that of a substitute for
Rosina's voice teacher, the
Count is able to enter
Bartolo's home, meet
Rosina and win her heart.
With many farcical gems,
a slew of troubled moments
for all, and a final happy
ending for both Rosina and
the Count as well as finan-
cial gains for Bartolo and
Figaro, the production bub-
bled along with many a
laugh for the audience.

Overseen by the Artistic
Director of the Sarasota
Opera, Victor DeRenzi led
the Sarasota Orchestra in an
exciting overture, produc-
ing beautiful ebb and flow
and an exhilarating cre-
scendo. The Maestro and
orchestra supported the
singers very well consid-
ering the complicated
rhythms as well as the fast-
paced patter arias.
The production values
were excellent. The scenic
design by Jeffrey W Dean
was solid and along with
the costumes by Howard
Tsvi Kaplan evoked the
period with style and color.
Ken Yunker's lighting, espe-
cially in the storm scene,
nicely set the mood for the
work.

Figaro. His voice is strong,
although a softer edge at
certain moments would
have made a sharper con-
trast with some of his fine
vocal fireworks. Keri
Alkema, the mezzo-sopra-
no, as Rosina, was out-
standing with a lovely, fully
modulated tone which art-
fully showed her dislike for
Bartolo and her affection for
the Count. Stefano de
Peppo as Bartolo was
amusing in his interpreta-
tion of Rosina's middle-
aged ward. As sung by
Young-Bok Kim, Basilio
became an oily conspirator
with Bartolo. Kim's bass is
very robust and he created a
strong impression, as
always. Unfortunately, Eric
Margiore, as the Count, had
difficulty keeping up with
the rest of the cast with a


rather monochrome inter-
pretation of his role and a
strained vocal style which
almost disintegrated in the
second act. Maria D'Amato
as Berta, Barolo's old house-
keeper was truly funny. Her
singing was particularly
good, not only in the
ensemble work, but in the
one aria which she had.
Overall, the cast on this
opening night took a bit of
time to reach the level of
performance which the
orchestra had so nicely
achieved in the overture,
but when it did, there was
good fun to be had and
some high level vocal
excitement.
"Barber of Seville" plays
through Nov. 16. For infor-
mation and tickets, call the
Sarasota Opera at 941-366-

SAn
estimated
one in four
' S' sports injuries involves
the ankle or foot, a
majority of which are the
result of incomplete
rehabilitation of earlier
injuries. Thus, it is imperative
that ankle injuries be properly
treated. If you have suffered an
ankle sprain in the past, you
could be at increased risk for more
serious foot or ankle damage in the
future. Those at particular risk for
these types of repeat injuries are
newly active Baby Boomers who
are trying to improve their physical
condition by getting back into
sports and fitness. These newly
active sports enthusiasts should
get their ankles checked for
chronic instability caused by
sprains and other injuries from
years ago that may not have
healed properly.

Lowest priced




Venezia house




offered for sale


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

House prices have returned
to realistic territory after
four or five years of
countrywide boom and bust ups
and downs.
An example is a smaller three-
bedroom, two-bath home at
Venezia. Built in 2004, this great
room-style home is listed for less
than its when-new cost.
Listing realtor Rick Rabalais
said this is the lowest price home
in Venezia. With a lake view,
mature landscaping and room for
a pool, the house has new flooring
and decor with clean-lined South
Beach flair.
The third bedroom opens from
the great room via French doors.
Its central location allows it to
work well as a den, library, home
office or media room.
There is a two-car attached
garage, separate laundry room,
two pantry closets between the
laundry and kitchen and a break-
fast nook area in the kitchen,
which has bar counter between
that room and the great room.
Both great room and master
bedroom enjoy views of a lake out


back. The master bath has a larger
walk-in shower, linen closet, clos-
eted toilet and his and her closets.
There is a new Pergo floor in
the living area, tile in the kitchen
and baths and more Pergo in the
bedroom at the front of the house.
Venezia has a resort-like com-
munity pool with separate hot tub
framed on three sides by stone
balustrades and on the fourth side
by a community clubhouse build-
ing. The pool is like a lagoon pool
found in fine resorts and includes
a fountain. There are tennis courts
to the left of the entrance to the
pool and clubhouse area.
"Venezia is just 10 minutes
from Manasota Beach," Rabalais
said.
The gated, non-golf communi-
ty also is close to shopping, the
Robert Anderson County Admin-
istration Building and, via
Jacaranda Boulevard, Interstate
75.
Listed for $295,000, the house
can be seen at open houses from
noon-3 p.m. Saturday and Sun-
day, Nov. 15 and 16 or at other
times by appointment. For infor-
mation, call Rabalais at 941-539-
0029.
kcool@venicegondolier.com


The great room includes a separate area for dining near the front of the house and close to the kitchen.


The kitchen features Corian counters
and a raised bar.


The master bedroom
has views of a lake and
landscaped back yards.

Theaters

need help

n a press release from
Lemon Bay High School's
drama department was a
request for clothing, volunteers
and money. It took me back to
my high school and college
days, when I had hours of fun
working behind the scenes.
Community help made
our shows even better.
Theaters everywhere, from
high school level to our area's
wonderful community and
professional theaters often
need period clothing. Years
ago, on a costume shop tour
with a designer at a profession-
al theater, I learned how much
she used to spend to purchase
shoes with a vintage look
whenever she found them in
stores. She would buy every
size, for the time they might be
needed. Most theaters do not
have the budget to do that and
truly appreciate donations, if
they have the storage space.
Lemon Bay High School's
drama department is looking
for clothing with an '80s look
for its Nov. 14-24 production of
"The Wedding Singer." Specific
needs include tuxedos and old
bridesmaid dresses, shoes and
props. Also needed are volun-
teers to sew costumes, to build
and paint sets and even to sell
tickets or usher. To help and/or
to donate money, call Artistic
Director Jennifer Kelly at
941-474-7702.
Call the costume and/or set
designers at your favorite com-
munity or professional theater
or your local high school
drama department. Donate
that old mink, a few dollars or
your time and talent for
sewing, building or painting.
The Venice Theatre has some
1,500 volunteers and needs
and appreciates each one. With
more theaters per capital than
NewYork City, there are plenty
of theaters you can help.
Call one.
Join the fun.

'The Producers' hits Venice stage


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
For at least three years in a
row, "The Producers" was the
Venice Theatre's Broadway
road trip hook.
Now, the Mel Brooks hit is
on the Venice Theatre stage
for a Nov. 11-Dec. 7 run,
directed by the theater's
Executive/Artistic Director,
Murray Chase, with choreog-
raphy by Brad Wages, musical
direction by Rick Bogner and
costumes by Nicholas
Hartman.
In addition to being one of
just three community theaters
to get the rights to produce


the show, the Venice Theatre
is the first theater in Florida
to mount a production of
"The Producers."
The story concerns
Broadway producer Max
Bialystock (Daniel Greene)
and his accountant Leo Bloom
(Charles Mckenzie) and his
mild-mannered accountant
(Leo Bloom), The producer
needs a hit, if only so that his
accountant will have some fig-
ures to add instead of sub-
tract. Together, the pair hatch
a scheme to produce history's
biggest Broadway flop so that
they can keep the millions
obtained from backers.


Instead, their outlandish
show, "Springtime for Hitler"
is a smash. As outlandish as
"Springtime for Hitler" is the
way the two assemble their
production staff, raise the
needed money and succeed
despite themselves.
Sets for the Venice show are
by Michael Newton-Brown,
with lighting by Chris
McVicker and sound by
Dorian Boyd. Mark Dukes is
the production manager with
Sue Brennan as the produc-
tion stage manager.
The cast includes Heather
Kopp as Ulla, Neil Kasanofsky
as Franz Liebkind, Hartman as


Roger DeBris and Scott Vitale
as Carmen Ghia. Ensemble
players include Hayley Balliet,
Sharon Bartley, Alyson
Basehore, Andrea Bekkenhuis,
Tahlia Byers, Andrew Conners,
Tony DeNiro, Laura Priscilla
Hoffman, Michael Hoffman,
Lauren Kelly, Kim Gardner-
Kollar, Doug Landin, Linda
Mounce, Patrick Mounce,
Justine Rizzo, Maria
Santagada, Ally Tufenkjian
and Shawn Watkins.
Brooks, the show's lyricist,
wrote the book with Thomas
Meehan and the music with
Glen Kelly.
"The Producers" will be per-


formed on the main stage of
the Venice Theatre, 140 W.
Tampa Ave., on the island in
downtown Venice, Tuesdays
through Saturday at 8 p.m. and
Sunday at 2 p.m. The theater
is dark on Mondays. Tickets are
$24 per person. Order
online anytime at
www.venicestage.com or by
phone at 941-488-1115, daily
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and

to 1 p.m.

Southwest Florida Music Festival A great place to get the blues'


PROVIDED BY CARL JERVIS
MATLACHA MARINERS
The Southwest Florida Music
Festival, is probably one of the
best kept secrets in all of
Southwest Florida and is a great
place to get the blues.
The festival is held Saturday at
Pine Island Resort, located at
5120 Stringfellow Road,
St. James City.
It is gaining recognition by
many people from around the
country as one of the premier
Blues festivals in the great state
of Florida. This fantastic laid-
back festival draws people from
all over the state as well as folks
from around the country.
Everyone is always amazed
with the quality of talent we
bring to the stage each year, as
well as the professional way in
which the event is produced.
Each year more and more musi-
cians request our consideration
to play at this venue, not only
local and regional talent but
nationally touring acts and inter-
national artists as well. This
year's lineup is no exception,
and this year the Mariners are
very excited because they will
present seven great bands for
your listing enjoyment.
These are not just any bands,
we have Bryan Lee; A New
Orleans Blues Institution, who
has been nominated for three
blues awards this year, Best Male
Artist Best Blues Band Best
Contemporary Blues Album of
the Year for "Katrina Was Her
Name."
We also have Alligator record-

Time: Gates open at noon with music

ing artist Janiva Magness, winner
of the 2006 and 2007 Blues
Music Awards (formerly the WC.
Handy awards) for Best
Contemporary Female Artist Of
The Year, she is also a 008
Nominee for the Blues Music
Award, "B.B. King Entertainer
of the Year."
You'll also be getting Damon
Fowler. Blind Pig Records has
just announced the signing of
this young guitar phenomenon.
Damon Fowler has played and
shared the stage with many of
today great artists, B.B. King,
Barnard Allison, Bo Diddley,
Bob Margolin, Buddy Guy, Chris
Duarte, Coco Montoya, Delbert
McClinton, Derek Trucks, Edgar
Winter and Greg Allman just to
name a few. Fowler's guitar
work has been compared to
JohnnyWinter and Jeff Beck,
while his slide guitar has a hint
of the late Duane Allman. He
can play fiery guitar runs with
the best of them, but it's his lyri-
cal work on lap steel and Dobro


that makes him stand out
among a legion of guitar players.
Unbelievable is all we can say
about Julie Black She is one of
the most exciting new female
performers in the Blues & Jazz
genres. Julie's also an extremely
talented songwriter who delivers
her tales with power, finesse and
passion! Her songs reflect a pas-
sion for Blues while incorporat-
ing flavors of other musical gen-
res. The result is a signature
sound all her own.
Get there early because you
do not want to miss out on Sean
Chambers' performance,
Sean burns up the fret board
like few can, playing with power
and intensity that has earned
him comparisons to Stevie Ray
Vaughan, JohnnyWinter and
Billy Gibbons among others.
In 1998 Chambers was asked
to fill in as Hubert Sumlin's gui-
tarist at The Bluesstock Festival
in Memphis, Tenn. The two hit
it off amazingly well and had a
unique and obvious chemistry
together. Chambers would find
himself acting as Sumlin's gui-
tarist and band leader for the
next four years. Sean doesn't
merely play the guitar as much
as he boldly attacks the instru-
ment with a fluid ferocity and
attitude that makes one stop
dead in their tracks.
This year's festival has more
to offer, with local Blues/R&B

favorites Deb & The Dynamics.
Deb Salyer has toured with
her good friend Deborah
Coleman for four years and is
on her last two albums "Living
on Love" and "The Life in
California Soul Be It."
Deb Salyer and members of
her band have shared the stage
wih musicians like, Delbert
McClinton, KoKo Taylor,
Emmerson Lake and Palmer,
The Beach Boys, The Spinners,
Huey Lweis and The News and
Percy Sledge, Saffire the uppity
blues women, Eric Lindell,
Chris Cane and the list goes
on and on.
Wait, were not finished yet:
you'll also get to hear Dogfish
perform.
Founder TJ Brown is the heart
and soul of Dogfish. TJ is the
self- described oldest 30-year-
old on Pine Island, Brown is the
band's front man and creative
leader. Whether it's a tune right
off the charts, or one of his
many original blues composi-
tions, TJ proves to be one of the
most talented singers we have
on the Island today. Their band
is often augmented by some of
the island's finest musicians.
If you haven't had a chance to
listen to Dogfish before, this will


be a perfect occasion to hear
them at their best. This may
very well be one of the best
upcoming bands in the area.
They bring a solid blues and
soulful sound to each perfor-
mance, you can rest assured
these guys aim to please.
The Matlacha Mariners,
through their endeavor to raise
charitable funds for variety of
causes produce two festivals
and one fundraiser each year.
Gates open at noon with

Circus Sarasota

reveals special star


COMING TO THE FESTIVAL...

TheM ns Ll i a
*L hinA -L M&a


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
"Bello Comes Home" is the
name of the 2009 show being
assembled by Circus Sarasota
for its 12 season.
"Bello" is none other than
Bello Nock, one of the most
famous clowns in circus
history. Known for his spiked
orange-red hair, Demetrius
Alexandro Claudio Amadeus
Bello Nock has starred with
the The Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey Circus since
2001, when he was named the
star clown of The Greatest
Show on Earth. He was named
"America's Best Clown" by
Time magazine.
The Greatest Show on Earth
also named its show after the
super star clown. Bellobration
celebrated the show's clown
star as Bello Comes Home cel-
ebrates the return of Bellow to
where it all began.
The super star of the clown
world finished touring with the
Ringling show Sunday, after
racking up as many as 500 per-
formances during each of the
big show's 11-month touring
schedule. When he debuted in
Tampa in 2001, he charmed
children and adults during an
hour pre-show who were fasci-
nated by his red-orange hair
that rises some 8 inches
straight up from his scalp and
manages to stay in place no
matter what he does even
when he is hanging sideways
from a sway pole.
Born in Sarasota to Eugene
and Aurelia Nock, who joined
the Ringling show in 1954 and
1955, respectively, marrying in
1955, the seventh generation
performer joined the family act
at the age of 3 as clown, toured
with Cathy Rigby in "Peter Pan"
at 6 and eventually developed
his own clown act.
The very best clowns go far
beyond having talent and a
gimmick such as spiked red-


orange hair. Lou Jacobs, father
of Circus Sarasota star and
founder, Dolly Jacobs, had a
car so tiny it seemed humanly
impossible to get in and out of
it. By developing that act and
hundreds of other tricks and
routines, Jacobs became one of
just four master clowns in the
Ringling show. Bello's talents
include his drive and also his
acrobatic ability. While main-
taining a grueling schedule as
a clown, Bello worked to devel-
op several daredevil stunts,
including the mastering of the
sway pole act created by his
father. During the mesmeriz-
ing routine, he climbs to the
top of the 60-inch pole and
performs many of the same
tricks done by performers on
the web but in a much less
controlled environment for the
flexible pole swings and sways
according to the slightest
motion by Bello. He began per-
forming on the sway pole with
his parents when he was 15.
During his Wheel of Steel act
with a member of the famed
Wallenda Circus family, a hush
usually falls over the arena. No
less risky is his ride across a
tightrope on a motorcycle.
Whatever he does during the
month-long run of Circus
Sarasota will be well worth the
ticket. Also featured in the
show, which opens Jan. 30, are
Dolly Jacobs, performing her
aerial act with Yuri Rjkov;
David Rosaire and his Pekinese
dogs; Russian juggler Simian; a
14-year-old Russian contor-
tionist, a trampoline act; the
Smirnoffs, who mesmerized
Circus Sarasota audiences
two years ago with heir
quick-change act.

Asolo appropriately opens 50th season with'Barnum'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Celebrating its golden
anniversary season in a city
synonymous with circus, the
Asolo Repertory Theatre selected
"Barnum," a musical look at the
life of showman Phineas "ET."
Barnum, as its opening show.
Music is by Cy Coleman with
lyrics by Michael Stewart. The
book was written by Mark
Bramble. On Broadway, the
show earned three Tonys
and several other awards.
When the theater company
presented its first performance
in what is today the Historic
Asolo Theater at the John and
Mable Ringling Museum of Art
in Sarasota, the city that is the
heart of Florida's Cultural Coast
was home to "The Ringling
Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Circus." The Barnum in the
show's name is that same
Barnum, the man considered
one of the all-time greatest pro-
moters, despite questionable
and even outlandish methods.
This production will be across
the street from the museum in
the Mertz Theatre, within the
Florida State University Center
for the Performing Arts.

Marilyn Monroe.

ROAD TRIP
November 12- 13, 2008


Linger Lodge Resort is one of the most

unusual road trip destinations in the state


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Road trippers need to eat.
Bradenton's Linger Lodge
Resort is one of the most
unusual road trip destinations
in the state and also the site
of a unique restaurant.
Television weatherman, road
tripper and food channel
reporter, Al Roker, is said to
have called the Linger Lodge
Restaurant "one of The top
five weirdest restaurants
in the country."
Since Roker has likely been to
far more restaurants than this
road tripper, I will defer to him
but, it would be hard to imagine
anything too much stranger.
One sign is made of dead
snakes.
There is a bear skin on one
wall and a preserved 16-foot
alligator over the bar. Several
rattlesnakes have been pre-
served in coiled and striking
positions. Some are in cases.
Some snakes have been hung
on the walls. A giant hornet's
nest hangs from the ceiling.
Several cases hold taxidermied
animals coyotes, squirrels
and more. The quasi-ordinary
oddities include old sleds,
which may be in homage to the
Wisconsin roots of the resort's
longest owner, Frank Gamsky.
Levine said Gamsky, who still
lives in the neighborhood, was
an amateur taxidermist.
Currently owned by Senator
Michael S. Bennett and
entrepreneur Marvin Kaplan,
the resort has been managed
since September byVenice
resident Mike Levine who is a
long-time restaurant manager
and turnaround specialist.
"This is Old Florida the way
it really feels," Levine said
about the wooded setting.
Day-trippers will head for the
restaurant for its food and view
as well as its strangeness. Once
they see what else is there, they
might return for a few days or
more to experience the camp-
ground, which may not be
weird but definitely is not your

current typical RV resort.
Located on a beautiful stretch
of the Braden River, the restau-
rant and the resort have
extraordinary views. Levine
said the river is placid because
it flows into a lake and not into
Gulf of Mexico. Without tidal
involvement, the placid river is
ideal for canoes and kayaks. A
small spit of land that juts into
the river from the resort has
been cleared for even story-
telling around a fire pit there.
Levine spoke of developing
some other areas along the
river for scout troops.
"I would love to create a
whole primitive camping area,"
Levine said.
Already at the resort is a
variety of accommodations,
ranging from an unfurnished
three-bedroom house to several
log cabins and on-site RVs.
There also are sites where
guests can bring their own rigs.
During the January-March sea-
son, cabins rent for $500 a week
or $1,500 a month. In all there
are 4 cabins, 110 campsites, a
pool, showers toilets, laundry
room, horseshoes, shuffleboard
and tent sites.
"I almost think you have to
market this as the anti-resort,"


Levine said. "You can get big
rigs in here but there are
only 30 amps of power."
Levine previously owned and
operated Sonny's Venice
location and then the Royal
Coachman RV Resort in Laurel.
At Linger Lodge he called in
painters and tree trimmers to
freshen up the resort while
enhancing its "old Florida"
appeal. He even had the
river cleaned up.
"I want to bring it back to
Florida landscaping and get rid
of the stuff that doesn't belong,"
he said. "I want it neat and
clean and raked, with some
annuals and hanging baskets."
In the restaurant, he changed
chefs to return the menu to
what it had always done best -
simple and fresh fare featuring
Alligator bites, Braden River frog
legs, shrimp, crab cakes,
burgers, Philly sandwiches,
Reubens, BBQ Pork, fried
green tomatoes, beer battered
onion rings, some salads,
soups like alligator chowder
and desserts that include Key
Lime pie but also an Orange
Blossom pie that melts in one's
mouth. Batter for the tomatoes
and onions is freshly made,
not purchased from restaurant


A Florida red wolf, preserved by amateur taxidermist and longtime
Linger Lodge owner Frank Gamsky, is mounted above the heads of
lodge patrons. Countless other preserved animals and reptiles fill
wall, ceiling and display cabinet space of the main building at the


Linger Lodge Resort in Bradenton.
