A fish camp for the first 60-plus years of its existence, Snook Haven became one of approximately 180 parks
in Sarasota County when it was acquired in 2006.




Business ventures,





tourist adventures


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Entering Snook Haven, it feels like you're tak-
ing a trip back to Old Florida, when violins were
called fiddles and folks used the Myakka River
more for transportation than recreation.
But driving down the 3/4-mile, tree-lined
road in unincorporated Sarasota County,
between North River Road and the retreat, you
better not blink or you'll miss the sign welcom-
ing guests to one of the county's approximately
180 parks.
The Snook Haven fish camp was founded in
the late 1930s. Sarasota County commissioners
established Snook Haven Park when they
bought the 4.5-acre facility in 2006. Since 2007,
the restaurant has been leased to Sunrise
Sunset Concessions of Snook Haven LLC.
"We're kind of like a prototype of their con-
cessions agreements," Sunrise Sunset partner
Ken Hansen, of Venice, said of his company's
relationship with the county. "It costs them a lot
of money to send somebody out to mow the
grass. It costs them a lot of money to do mainte-
nance, so we do everything here. They are a
good landlord."
County commissioners awarded Sunrise
Sunset a 10-year lease (including a five-year
renewal by mutual agreement). Under this
agreement, the county receives 12.5 percent of
all revenue, up to the first $1 million. That
amounted to $115,000 in 2008.


Hansen, who says he is making a profit at
Snook Haven, also has the lease for the conces-
sion at Siesta Public Beach. He says the terms of
the leases are different.
Having a government landlord means
receiving "more scrutiny for anything that is
done," Hansen said. "Here you have to realize
that the river has aWild and Scenic (River desig-
nation) so that means it's protected. You've got
five or six (government) agencies involved in
anything that goes on out here."
Sustenance
Snook Haven is one of a number of public-
private partnerships in the area, businesses run
by private groups on public property. It's not a
new concept, but it's being embraced now, dur-
ing these tough economic times.
In a handful of public-private partnerships
- Snook Haven, Sharky's On The Pier in Venice
and Marina Jack Restaurant in Sarasota the
combination of good food, live entertainment
and a waterfront setting lures tourists and local
customers year-round.
"Having concessions opportunities in our
parks does sustain and support the funding for
our overall parks operations," said Kristin
Steffen, business professional in the Sarasota
County Community Services Department. "It
supports the cost of maintaining the parks and
it provides a service to the general pubic. It's a

A tale of two parks

WCI to donate more land to Myakka River Park,
while city council renames a park after a recently


deceased activist.
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Assistant City Engineer Kath-
leen Weeden met with WCI
Communities staff recently to
ask if the city could discharge a
small amount of parking lot
runoff for the planned Myakka
River Park into a stormwater
pond WCI owns nearby. In-
stead, WCI proposed giving the
city the land.
Weeden came away with
the unexpected offer to take
control of 8 acres on upland
property surrounding mostly
wetlands, and own the access
road leading into and out of
the park.
In exchange WCI would be
released from up to $250,000
in required park improvement
credits and its obligation of
perpetual road maintenance.
The credits and maintenance
provisions are contained in a
preannexation agreement
reached a few years ago before
WCI went into foreclosure.


At a recent meeting city
council gave the go-ahead to
continue negotiations to revise
the preannexation agreement.
Under new terms, the city
would own the access road,
and build its park amenities on
the newly acquired land.
The deal, if it sticks, conve-
niently solves a number of
problems, like where to build
improvements in mostly wet-
lands, and where the money
will come from.
WCI donated the original
park acreage to the city as part
of its agreement to develop
Venetian Golf & River Club.
The preannexation agree-
ment calls for a passive park
with a small pavilion, rest-
rooms and parking lot. A non-
motorized kayak launch is
planned in a man-made lake
that feeds into the Myakka
River.
Coincidentally, the Peace

Surgery center closes in Venice


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


The Surgery Center at Ven-
ice HealthPark closed its doors
Friday. That left about 60 em-
ployees out of work and a
number of patients wondering
how they were going to get
their outpatient surgeries
done.
Venice Regional Medical
Center staff came to the rescue
of the patients and employees.
"Though we had no owner-
ship in the center, we were
notified of its closing, and we
worked with our physicians to
get those surgeries scheduled"
said Melody Trimble, VRMC
CEO.
"My next concern was the
employees," she said. "Our


goal was to be of assistance in
alleviating their fears going
into the weekend."
Trimble and her human re-
sources staff met with surgery
center employees on Friday
and worked through the week-
end trying to match them with
open positions at the hospital.
Details of jobs for surgery cen-
ter employees who were inter-
ested in working at the hospi-
tal were being finalized on
Monday
History
The Surgery Center at Ven-
ice HealthPark opened in 1994
and was owned by a group of
16 local doctors. It was an out-

No local swine flu cases reported, but area prepares


STAFF REPORT


While no cases of swine flu
have been reported in
Florida, health departments
and hospitals in Charlotte,
Sarasota and DeSoto counties
will unite to support the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention and the
Florida Department of Health
in fighting a swine influenza
outbreak.
Representatives of the vari-
ous agencies met Monday
morning to discuss the effort.
Ed McCrane, Sarasota emer-
gency management director,
said in a 4 p.m. news confer-
ence Monday his departments
has been meeting regularly
and "we have plans in place."
He said telephone conference
calls already have been made
to state agencies and begin-
ning Tuesday, the state is con-


ducting daily conferences with
emergency managers in each
county.
The emergency operations
center is not activated at this
time, McCrane said. He said it
could be one of the next steps
to be taken.
Statewide, Florida has pre-
pared for influenza events:
All state laboratories have
the facilities to safely identify
influenza samples.
The state has almost 100
sentinel physicians who report
any unusual influenza-like
activity to DOH and the CDC.
Sales of over-the-counter
drugs can be monitored as
an early warning sign for
increased influenza activity.
The state Surgeon General
has provided recommenda-
tions:
People with respiratory ill-
ness should stay home from


work or school to avoid
spreading infections, includ-
ing influenza, to others in the
community.
Avoid close contact with
people who are coughing or
otherwise appear ill.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose and mouth.
Wash hands frequently to
lessen the spread of respirato-
ry illness.
People experiencing cough,
fever and fatigue, possibly
along with diarrhea and vom-
iting, should contact their
physician.
If you think you have
influenza, call your health-care
provider and discuss whether
you need to be seen in their
office or emergency depart-
ment or should stay home.
Swine influenza viruses are
not transmitted by food, and
a person cannot get swine


Frequent hand washing remains the best defense against contagious
diseases, including the swine flu.


influenza from eating pork
products. The infection appears
to spread from person to per-
son, the state DOH said.
Sarasota County epidemiol-


ogist Scott Pritchard said that
while emergency officials don't
know the full spread of the
virus, there has been routine
surveillance in the county.


County wants residents to be storm-ready


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County launched
its campaign against compla-
cency along with a Neighbor-
hoods in Action storm prepa-
ration program Monday dur-
ing a briefing at the Robert L.
Taylor Community Complex.
"We want people to be as
self-sufficient as possible,"
Emergency Management Direc-
tor Ed McCrane said of the


Neighborhood

S Disaster Plan-
ning CD.
The CD is a
how-to for neigh-
borhoods that
wish to organize
McCrane a local prepared-
ness group.
Topics include storm pre-
paredness, home inspections,
smoke alarms, water safety
and proper use of 9-1-1.


McCrane said that this year
there will be 22 emergency
shelters in the county, includ-
ing Pine View School in Osprey,
the Venice Community Center
and Taylor Ranch Elementary
School near Islandwalk, as well
as six schools in North Port, in
South County.
The shelters at North Port
High, Heron Creek Middle and
Pine View schools are all pet-
friendly.
Registered residents with


special needs have risen from
just more than 300 a few years
ago to about 2,500, he said.
McCrane said the county
recently received a first-place
award in technology and inno-
vation from the International
Association of Emergency
Managers for its development
of the People with Special
Needs registration "WebPSN"
database software.
The county emergency
response plan encompasses


all the unincorporated areas of
the county. McCrane said he
will hold an informational ses-
sion for Englewood residents at
1:30 p.m. May 6 at the Suncoast
Auditorium at Englewood
Community Hospital. A hurri-
cane seminar is set for 7:30
a.m. to noon May 8 at Venice

But city officials are

wherein the city could
buy the springs and an-
other entity would oper-

meeting about Warm
Mineral Springs because
the unique 81-acre prop-
erty with a 230-foot
lake and mineralized
water that flows at a con-
stant 87-degree tempera-
ture is revered by
many North Port resi-
dents for its healing qual-

The spring, which
dates back at least 10,000
years and is believed by
some to be the fountain
of youth sought by


Spanish explorer Ponce
de Leon, is on the U.S.
National Register of His-
toric Places. It could play
a vital role in economic
development in the city.
Gene Vaccaro, Warm

"I'm very pleased to

The county bought
Snook Haven to ensure
that the unspoiled prop-

commissioners have a
similar goal for Warm

Speaking separately
with commissioners Jim

"they obviously have an

very welcoming to my

seem to reach out for in-

I am more than anxious
to accommodate."

Sarasota County Com-

The Orioles rejected that

"the amount of money
the city is willing to com-

the city to clarify its "will-

Season had mixed effect on downtown


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The start of April heralded
the winding down of another
season for store owners. Those
with years of experience ac-
knowledged the time of plenty
was over, and it would be year-
round residents who would
keep their businesses thriving
as they prepared for the long,
hot summer.
Sales were down, but not
bad, said TrentYoung, co-own-
er of Captain's Landing, 319 W
Venice Ave.
An advocate of more lodg-
ing in the city, Young thinks
Venice offers boutique shop-
ping and but has insufficient
boutique lodging.
"This community has to
realize the importance of tour-
ism to stimulate the economy,"
he said.
For Enrico Magniafico, who
opened Cafe Magniafico, 229


W Miami Ave., two years ago, it
has been a very good season,
thanks to residents and snow-
birds alike. Magniafico will op-
en a spacious Sicilian restau-
rant on Miami Avenue for next
season.
For 24 years Beverly Seybert
has owned Mrs. Candlewick's,
307 W Venice Ave. Sales were
down from past years, and a
new problem arose because
suppliers had cautiously reduc-
ed their inventories so popular
items were not stockable.
March was her best month of
the past year, and she is cau-
tiously preparing for six months
of summer's lower sales.
Shrode Jewelry, 233 W Ven-
ice Ave. opened in 1948, so
owner Mike Shrode has an
established business. He does
not change the store's hours,
and his customers are usually
buyers.
Revenues are little bit down
probably, partly due to the


higher prices of gold and plat-
inum combined with every-
body tightening their belts.
"Sure, every business is a lit-
tle bit off, but we will still be
here next year," he said.
Newcomer Eddie Glennon
opened Back Eddy Bistro, 239
W Miami Ave., a year ago. For
him the season began after
Valentine's Day, with cus-
tomers willing to spend on
pricier items to get a good,
well-presented meal. He kept
the same hours all year.
Sandy and Dave Wilson are
seasonally experienced, hav-
ing owned the Sun Bug, 141 W
Venice Ave., for 26 years. For
her it has been a wonderful
season, although revenues
were off minutely. Wilson's dif-
ficulties were in getting re-
orders because of manufactur-
ers' low inventories.
'Tough enough'
Way ahead this year with


higher sales revenues, Sandy
McGowan, owner of Sandy's
Designer Clothing, 128 W.
Venice Ave., believes her ad-
vertising cultivated repeat
buyers. People preferred shop-
ping downtown to save gas,
but they looked twice before
spending. All season she open-
ed seven days with extended
Sunday hours.
Revenues were the same as
last year for Harvey and Chris
Davis, owners of Abbacino
Gallery, 243 W Venice Ave. Be-
cause of the weakening econo-
my, they brought in lower-
priced items; ironically, high-
er-priced items sold. Nego-
tiating became a norm and
they started layaways. Sunday
opening, extended evening
hours and the strolls definitely
helped business.
"If all merchants made the
concerted effort to stay open
three evenings it would bring
more people down the Ave-


nues," said Harvey Davis.
Sallyann Grieshaber of
Patchington's, 136-8 W Venice
Ave., who came to manage the
Venice store in December, call-
ed it a "fantastic season despite
economic conditions." A sharp
drop in traffic in the first week
in April saw sales down 50 per-
cent, however.
New and expanding restau-
rants and cafes indicate the
priority of eating over fashion
and gifts. Stores offering ex-
tended shopping hours gener-
ally benefited. Downtown ac-
tivities, particularly the strolls,
encouraged visitors to come,
but they did more looking than
buying.
And they won't be back for
months.
"Summer is tough enough
with a good economy," said
Young. "This year we don't
know."

Relocating to Osprey
with a scheduled open-
ing Memorial Day week-
end is Tuesday Morning,
519 South Tamiami Trail,
near Publix on the island.
The new location,
1230 South Tamiami
Trail, adjoins the CVS
Pharmacy in the South
Bay Shopping Center at
Blackburn Point Road.
The current store opened
three years ago and will
remain open until half
the merchandise has
been transferred to the
new location, which is al-
most twice its size.
Contractors and staff
start the physical move
on Monday, May 18.
The 30-year-old com-
pany holds 10 major
monthly events begin-
ning on the first Tuesday
of the month. Tuesday
Morning Inc. has 700
stores with total annual
revenue of more than
$825 million.

basket for mom available
from Gulf Coast Gift
Baskets.
Last weekend, Carol
Ann Dann-Kowak mov-

of Anthony's Ladies
Fashions, 1087 North
Tamiami Trail, Nokomis
Villages Shoppes, will
become the only location
in two counties when
stores in Sarasota and
Bradenton are shuttered
this weekend.
"It has always been a
good store since we
opened seven years ago,
whereas Sarasota be-
came unprofitable, and
in four years Bradenton
has never made a profit,"
said M. Pope Anthony,
company president.
The 13-store opera-
tion was established in
1895 in a West Palm
Beach post office. The
business survived fire,
hurricanes, the Great De-
pression and the influx of
regional malls. Custom-
ers will continue receiv-

wear, easy-care fashions
available in Nokomis.
"I am seeing a sales
increase this month and I
believe the economy
may be turning around,"
said Anthony.

A leader in encourag-
ing this program is PGT

training and develop-
ment manager, encour-
ages employees to partic-

FROM CRISISID


Medical debt is the second-most-common reason
why Americans file bankruptcy, even those with
insurance. If you have time to plan for a hospital stay,
here are a few steps that experts say you can take to
make sure that you're not bled dry.
First and foremost, don't be afraid to ask ques-
tions about your stay and any procedures.
If your hospitalization isn't for an emergency,
check your insurance policy to find out just what it
will cover and have the insurance company pre-certi-
fy it with the hospital. Be sure to carefully review the
section on "exceptions and exclusions. It will tell you
what your plan will not cover.
Phone the hospital's billing department and ask
what you will be charged for the room and just what
the room charges cover.
Ask your doctors to provide an estimate your cost
of treatment.
Ask if you can bring your regular prescriptions


from home to avoid paying for medications adminis-
tered at the hospital.
Make sure that everyone who will be treating you
-the surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist, patholo-
gist participates in your insurance plan often
referred to as "in network."
At some point you will receive an explanation of
benefits from your insurance company (if you're on
Medicare, you will receive a summary notice). It will
say, "This is not a bill." Don't toss it into the trash.
Examine it. It will tell you how much the hospital is
charging, what your insurance plan will cover and
what you will have to pay out of your own pocket in
deductibles and co-payments.
If there are items you don't understand, call the
billing department and your insurer and ask them to
explain. Don't accept bills that use terms like "lab
fees" or "miscellaneous fees." Demand an itemiza-
tion. If you don't get satisfaction from the hospital
billing department, appeal in writing to the hospital
administrator or patient advocate.

dants (and current council members) Moore and
John Simmonds, and former airport advisory board
member Paul Hollowell which total over $200,000
- wouldn't be in the interests of the city.
Moore said perhaps the city should stop paying
Anderson's legal bills and the city's new co-council,


TWO from Page 1A


thority, which owns an
easement, is planning to
build a 48-inch water line
through the middle of the
park. That would require
expanding the easement.
In return, the authority
has tentatively agreed to
contribute toward resur-
facing the dirt road at the
eastern end of Laurel
Road, and even pave it "if
feasible," according to
Weeden.
The city gets donated
land, road maintenance
for free, and taps into the
planned waterline.
"It's great timing for
us," Weeden said. "We are
being fiscally responsi-
ble. We are not interested
in taking on a large finan-
cial commitment."
A Myakka River wild-
life group, Weeden said,
is excited that the kayak
launch won't directly
impact the river banks.
Once the deal is final-
ized it will be brought
back before council for
its approval.
Myakka River is one of
three major parks under
development within the
city. The others are a for-
mer wastewater plant on
the beach at Harbor
Drive near Sharky's On
The Pier restaurant re-
named on Tuesday to
Maxine Barritt Park (for-
merly known as Tra-
monto Vista Park), and a
former concrete plant
behind the Historic Ven-
ice Train Depot called
Legacy Park.
Maxine Barritt Park
The vote was 4-3 with
Mayor Ed Martin and
Council Members Sue
Lang, Ernie Zavodnyik
and Kit McKeon voting in
favor.
Council members John
Moore, John Simmonds
and Vicki Noren Taylor
voted against the motion
after Moore made a mo-
tion to postpone the de-
cision until staff looked
at alternatives for honor-
ing both Barritt and Rob-
ert Earl Clark, a civil engi-
neer responsible for sur-
veying and layout of the
the city of Venice in 1926
under John Nolen.
The Parks Advisory
Board originally recom-
mended renaming the
park as Clark Recrea-
tional Park. That was
prior to Barritt's death.
Moore and others at-
tempted to come up with
a win-win alternative,
but the vote, which also
calls on staff to explore
how best to honor Clark,
didn't feel like a win-win.
Council voted to re-
name the park and di-
rected staff to work with
Dawn Stoddart, grand-
daughter of Clark and
member of the Parks and
Recreation Advisory
Board, to look at com-
memorating Clark with a
plaque at Heritage Park
or renaming another
park or structure (like the
Hatchett Creek Bridge)
for his contribution to
the city ofVenice.
There was "no inten-
tion for the candidates to
compete," Martin said.
"Both are meritorious.
If they didn't come about
simultaneously there
would be no competi-
tion. It's just a question of
how to dispatch with
this."
Barritt supporters pre-
sented a petition with
900 signatures in favor of
Barritt's namesake. Stod-
dart presented a petition
of 100 signatures from
historic family members
like the Blackburns, Hi-
gels and Gatewoods.
Zavodnyik said Barritt
"played a significant role
in preserving this spot on


the Gulf."
Others credited Barritt
with singlehandedly stop-
ping commercial devel-
opment on the site of the
old wastewater facility
now called Maxine Bar-
ritt Park.
Simmonds called it mis-
information "that some-
how or other Maxine
stopped a hotel from being
there."
While that concern
was initially raised, it was
later rebuffed, Simmonds
said, when it was learned
the deed wouldn't allow
for it.
"What we purchased
with the (2004) bond was
not the property, it was
the reverter clause," Sim-
monds said. "If you want
to thank somebody for
the fact that we have that
(park) thank (Venice land
use attorney) Dan Boone."
Simmonds said Boone
worked alongside others
to fashion a deed signing
over the former Army air-
port land to the city in
1959.
Lang and Zavodnyik
said they liked the idea of
naming one of the city's
parks after a woman.
Moore said Barritt
epitomized the city's mis-
sion statement, which in-
cludes "engaging citi-
zens."
"Maxine fulfilled that
to the last word. She was
staunch advocate. No-
body deserves to have" a
park named after her
"more than Maxine Bar-
ritt."

Steve Chase, until the court sorts it
all out.
He said Anderson received
monthly payments totaling more
than $90,000, while co-counsel for
the city, Dale Scott, received
upwards of $165,000 in legal fees in
connection with the Sunshine suit.
Why were they being paid, and not
his attorney's bills, he asked.
Moore said perhaps he should
resubmit his fees in monthly incre-
ments. Finance Director Jeff
Snyder asked the Attorney Gen-
eral's office if that was OK. The AG's
office said it wasn't, according to
Snyder. When he asked on what
authority, the AG's office told him
to seek an attorney's opinion.
Snyder said he is following An-
derson's legal advice.
Anderson contends only city
council can approve bills over
$100,000, and there are questions
as to whether many of the council
members who were named defen-
dants have conflicts of interest in
voting on the issue. He wants to
appoint a special master to pay the
bills.
He also reached out to the
Florida Ethics Commission to see
whether Moore can vote on paying
the bills because he and others
were ultimately "exonerated."
Ditto for Council Member Sue
Lang. If Lang doesn't seek reim-


bursement for her private attorney
legal fees, then she may not have a
conflict of interest, Anderson said,
and can vote on the matter. He's
seeking an ethics commission
determination on that as well.
Git 'er done
Moore maintained his position
that no vote by council is required
at all.
"Somehow we need to convey
to Mr. Turner he has the power and
he can do that," Moore said.
But Turner didn't see it that way.
In his first moment in the prover-
bial hot seat Turner said under his
reading of the city code he does
not have the authority to process
those payments.
"In my profession, you have to
do things in a decent and orderly
manner. ... This situation is not
about staff not doing something
we were supposed to do. This is
not something of our creation."
He said processing the pay-
ments himself could put himself
or the city at risk.
"I love you but I'm not willing to
do that. (It) comes too close to
boardering on criminality. Without
some direction from council I
don't believe we can do this."
Lang, who assumed the chair
when Martin left the meeting, was
ready to force a vote on the matter

lenged the city clerk's reading of
Robert's Rules of Order arguing a
majority in attendance constitut-
ed a quorum. The clerk said that
isn't so, and warned that four
members are required to vote.
Lang backed down after Moore
agreed.
Discussion turned to holding a
shade meeting to determine the
city's next step.
Some council members indi-
cated a desire to discuss the issue
at such a meeting.
That raised the interest of legal
consultant Michael Barfield, who
was sitting three rows away in the
chambers. He works with the
plaintiff's lead attorney Andrea
Mogensen. He shook his head in
disbelief as council members dis-
cussed the merits of holding a
shade meeting to discuss the mat-
ter.
"Discussing attorney fees in a
shade meeting would be a total
violation of the Sunshine law,"
Barfield said.
In the end, Lang was only able
to muster consensus to have the
city clerk query council members
on the next available date to hold a
shade meeting.

OPINION

OUR VIEW



Treat these seasonal visitors well too


S ea turtle season begins May 1,
but the troops of local volunteers
are already at work preparing for
the annual visitation from the sea.
In fact, Wilma Katz, the longtime
coordinator of the Coastal Wildlife
Club, told staff writer Dana Sanchez
that turtles have already attempted to
nest at Don Pedro Island State Park.
More have been spotted offshore. And
at least four dead turtles have turned
up in the Manasota Key area, possibly
due to boating accidents, which
serves as a reminder that we need to
be careful about protecting these
extraordinary creatures.
Florida is one of two major nesting
grounds in the world for loggerhead
turtles (the other is the shore of Oman
in the Arabian Sea). Casey Key and
Manasota Key and the nearby islands
are hot spots on the West Coast, so the
local volunteers who patrol our


beaches play an important role,
especially given the steady decline
in turtle nest numbers over the past
decade.
Turtles endure a long, treacherous
trip from egg to middle age. The odds
of early survival may be on the order
of 1,000 to one.
Turtles who pass the many early
tests travel thousands of miles
through the Gulf of Mexico, the Carib-
bean and the Atlantic Ocean. As if the
experience isn't naturally taxing
enough, they also face man-made
threats, from the construction of sea
walls to commercial nets and long-
line fishing.
At some point in their 30s, female
turtles begin to return to their home
nesting grounds. They may come
back every two to four years there-
after up to age 100. They may lay mul-
tiple nests each summer, each nest


filled with 100-150 pingpong ball-
sized eggs. From there, the cycle starts
for new generations, on and on.
Or not, if we are not careful.
Hundreds of turtle patrol volun-
teers in Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee
counties have begun to assemble the
bright yellow markers and warning
signs that will be placed near emerg-
ing turtle nests.
They will begin their morning
strolls looking for new activity and
new nests holding the potential for
future generations of sea turtles.
They will register the guests, provid-
ing data important for statewide
monitoring.
Thanks to all of these good stew-
ards of our natural world. And a re-
minder to everyone of the impor-
tance of respecting turtle habitat.
Note also that it's a matter of local reg-
ulations.


Sea turtle season runs from May 1
to Oct. 31. During that time, do not
disrupt nests or annoy turtles. Watch
them from a distance. Do not make
noise or shine flashlights on them.
Turtles can be disoriented by
bright lights. Adult females may abort
nesting attempts; hatchlings may
crawl inland, not toward the Gulf. So,
do not build bonfires on the beach. All
lighting along the shore must be
shielded. Be careful with indoor
lights, too. Consult county environ-
mental staff for specific county light-
ing regulations.
Do not allow dogs to roam freely
on the beach.
Remove all beach furniture from
the sand in the evening.
Living near these ancient nesting
grounds, we have a special responsi-
bility to the continuation of the
species. Be respectful.


My stimulus plan


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


I was pleased to see
that Mayor Ed Martin
had contacted Congress-
man Vern Buchanan to
see if Venice couldn't get
more stimulus money. To
date, it appears we are in
line for almost a half mil-
lion for some road re-
pairs.
Not very often is there
a huge pot of money
available for special pro-
jects, but the once-in-a-
lifetime opportunity has
come. I think that of the
$700-plus billion only
something like $70 bil-
lion has been committed,
so good for the mayor for
going for it.
He wants some money
for a generator for the
hurricane shelter (Venice
Community Center),
which is a great need but
also not much of a job
producer. Updating our
aging reverse-osmosis
plant is a need and would
likely add some jobs.
My list is a little longer
and would create more
jobs. I don't know that
any of mine are any more
"shovel-ready" than many
others in the pipeline,
such as the reverse os-
mosis plant, but what the
heck if you don't ask,
you won't get anything.
It would have been
great if by some miracle
we could have done the
bypass with this money.
We have determined that
no government has
enough funds to widen it,
so it gets put off decade
after decade. Right now
would be the lowest cost
it will ever be. It's not
exactly a shovel-ready
project, but I don't know
anything that is needed
more. Maybe everyone
who got money from it
would buy a new car.
Building the park that
is planned at the Myakka
River at the end of Laurel
Road, and extending
Laurel Road to the park,
would be a great use.
Having a nice park on the
river with a canoe launch
in a lovely oak hammock
would be wonderful.
Wouldn't it be good to
extend Jacaranda to
Laurel Road, if for no oth-
er reason than to have a
secondary road for when


1-75 is closed?
I bet I could get a few
votes for tearing down
the old circus eyesore ...
er, arena. If that doesn't
work, maybe a nonprofit
could sell chances for
people to sledgehammer
it until it falls down.
We could use some
resurfacing; Tampa Ave-
nue, for example, looks
like an earthquake hit it.
It is on the schedule, so I
guess that makes it ready
to go. Let's move it up.
Redoing runway 4-22
would be a good one,
since billions were set
aside for airports, but
silly me for bringing that
up.
Widening River Road
is on the MPO list. It is
also very heavily traveled
-just go there at 8 in the
morning or at 5 at night
and see how packed it is.
A lot of people from
North Port and Engle-
wood who work in the
big city, Sarasota, use that
road to get to 1-75 and to
work.
While all of these are
great, there is only so
much to go around. I am
sure Mr. Buchanan is try-
ing hard for us.


By's Crack: A friend
says the economy
today is in a very criti-
cal and precarious bal-
ance, and any action
that affects the bal-
ance has to be very
carefully considered.
He said it's like pinning
a corsage on Dolly
Parton.

Congrats to the girls
softball team winning
their sixth straight district
title. Let's hope they con-
tinue their streak and
give us some more home
regional games to watch.

I have some wonder-
ful friends who did some-
thing very special for our
family: They purchased
and planted a tree in
memory of my father.
It is a Shady Lady (no
jokes please) and is
planted at the Gondolier
Sun office next to the
waterway park. My dad
was associated with the
paper for more than 40
years, so it is very appro-
priate. It is a nice place
for me to go out and
meditate about some of
the challenges facing all
of us today.
In doing this gesture,
my friends found out that
Blalock Park an arbor-
etum is full. Strange,
isn't it?

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


'Naked' does not equal 'lewd'


Editor:
The article, "Complaints lead to cleanup of
Caspersen Beach," immediately caught my eye
because, as a member of the Suncoast Naturists (nud-
ists), I'm interested in cleaning up Caspersen Beach
also. In fact, the Suncoast Naturists have adopted
Caspersen Beach and have hauled many bags of trash
off the beach in organized cleanups.
Caspersen is a beautiful beach, perfect for relaxing
days spent soaking up the sun and skinny-dipping in
the cool water. My soul is always nourished as my
skin, my largest organ of perception, usually desensi-
tized and buried beneath layers of clothing, recon-
nects me with the environment.
I'm not ignorant of the laws against lewd behavior
(an act directed toward another person which is pur-
posely intended to arouse the libido), which is hinted
at but never mentioned, nor am I opposed to the
enforcement of those laws. All we have to do to
observe lewd behavior is to turn on our TV Why aren't
the officers running undercover operations to clean
up that to which we expose our children for enter-
tainment?
I suspect that "this kind of problem" is a code for
homophobia. I'm not unfamiliar with the small num-
bers of my fellow Americans who become irritated
when they come across anyone in what they perceive
to be their territory who has "this problem" of being
different. Their code is that the "other" be converted
or destroyed.
If we are going to "clean up" society's ills because of
complaints, then register this letter as a complaint
against that kind of problem.

Traffic problems
at new store
Editor:
Having attended the
grand opening of the
new Publix store at East
Venice Avenue and Jaca-
randa Boulevard, I was
dismayed to see that en-
tering from East Venice
Avenue was easy but exit-
ing back onto EastVenice
Avenue was an exercise
in bravery.
I also noted that the
entry doors into the
Publix store itself were
only wide enough to ad-

tough at


at Bird Bay. I believe I
read in the paper they
plan to put a new light up
there although I don't
know what year.
I have been stopped at
the light at night with no
other cars in sight. I'm
going north and have to
stop for the light when
nothing is coming east,
west or south.
The lights you men-
tioned are a pain also. I
agree the lights need to
be set on demand to help
the flow of traffic. Sure
hope the DOT does
something about them
soon.

Keep your friends
close ... ?
Editor:
The recent scuffle at
Venice City Hall involv-
ing the Venice Taxpayers
League suggests that
maybe it is time that Mr.
Levine starts looking for
a private place to have
meetings. After all, Osa-
ma Bin Laden isn't one of
President Obama's advis-
ers.
It seems odd that a


this be sometimes adversarial
hazard? group to the city of Ven-
ice is given space at city
T. Janis hall. A private meeting
Venice place will also take care
of any potential conflict
of interest issues.


I want to thank you
for the editorial about the
traffic lights on 41 since
the rebuild.
I have called the De-
partment of Transpor-
tation at least five times
regarding the lights.
The one I really hate is


The most important
issue is the fact that our
city's leadership should
stop acting like children.
Some of us are of the feel-
ing that this economic
mess could have been
mitigated somewhat if
there were less squab-
bling and more looking
at where things are head-


I really hate to think
that we only have the
Internet and no account-
ing and inventory soft-
ware.

Do NOT block
his buses
Editor:
Today while showing
the sights ofVenice to our
friends from Connec-
ticut, we were accosted
by a security guard at the
Historic Venice Train De-
pot.
We entered the park-
ing area and proceeded
slowly along the train
platform while I ex-
plained the significance
of this important restora-
tion. The guard ran off
the platform screaming
at us, and when I asked
why I had to back out of
an area clearly marked as
one way in my direction,
he proclaimed, "Because
I said so. I have a bus
coming in in a minute."
We were so embar-
rassed by this unfortu-
nately inappropriate
performance. Fortunate-
ly, this instance is atypi-
cal in our 16 years as res-
idents.

LET'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD VENICE CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS WHO HIRED PRIVATE ATTORNEYS IN THE SUNSHINE CASE BE REIMBURSED? CALL 207-1111.


This odor is NOT uplifting


Something stinks. The city ofVenice appears to be
having difficulty controlling the obnoxious odors being
emitted from lift stations. One in particularly is lift sta-
tion No. 1 on the north side of The Rialto several blocks
south of Venice Hospital. It really doesn't cost much to
take care of this type of a problem on a routine basis.
Why should it have to become a nuisance before the
city takes care of it, after citizens have to complain? If
this lift station were next door to a city council member,
the problem would probably never exist.


Burned up. Itjust bog-
gles my mind that I am
choking in smoke. It just
goes on and on. When I
called I was told they had
permission to burn,
which is obviously true,
because every time we

very, very dry conditions,
we bum. Isn't it like this
every year? I don't under-
stand this; and then, of
course, it gets out of hand.



VEDDER from Page 8A


We need to find a place where
people can plant trees in memory
of loved ones. Communities all
over the country are finding places
to do this to help with climate con-
trol.
Now that the Venetian Water-
way Park is done, we should plant
trees along the trail. The Shady
Lady, I am told, does not grow
invasive roots, so is one good
example of what might be planted.
I really hope we can do this. I
know there are some issues about
access to the waterway, but these
can be overcome.

Top 10 fish to

catch and eat

First, let's do catching,
with 1 being the best. These
are just my opinions; you
may disagree or agree.
No. 10: whiting mainly
because we don't catch many
17- and 18-inchers.
No. 9: grunts most of
our grunts are caught off-
shore. The ones we do catch
inshore don't seem to fight
enough for me.
No. 8: bluerunners our
runners aren't as big as the
Atlantic-side ones.
No. 7: Spanish mackerel -
unless you are catching 18-
inch or larger, I don't think
they fight as much as some
other fish.
No. 6: mangrove snapper
- now it's starting to get
tough because I have so
many favorite fighting fish.
No. 5: black drum espe-
cially on light tackle and in
the 5-pound area.
No. 4: ladyfish particu-
larly if they're more than 16
inches.
Nos. 3, 2, 1: Now it's really
tough to decide. Here's a
grouping of eight: snook, tar-
pon, redfish, trout, pom-
pano, permit, jacks and
cobia. Inch for inch, my vote
goes to the pompano on light
tackle. On heavier tackle it's
either snook, permit or
cobia, or even a bull redfish.

Venice falls to Manatee in districts


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


The up and down season
ended for Venice.
Venice left nine runners on
base and had trouble hitting
Manatee right-hander Jeremy
Strawn as the No. 4 seed
Hurricanes pounded out 11
hits in a 11-1 win over No. 5
seed Venice in the first round of
the Class 5A-District 12 tourna-
ment at North Port High. The
game was shortened to six
innings by the 10-run rule.
Strawn (5-2) allowed just


three hits with five strikeouts
and three walks.
The loss ends Venice's sea-
son with a 9-17 record as the
Indians struggled to put two
games together. Only twice this
season did Venice win two
games in a row, which was their
longest winning streak.
"We struggled all year long
to get it together," Venice coach
Craig Faulkner said. "We strug-
gled with a lot of stuff that did-
n't do with baseball."
The Indians, who had 13
strikeouts against Strawn in
their first meeting, went ahead


1-0 in the second inning. Brent
Krauss reached on an error by
the second baseman. Mike
Geers laid down a perfect bunt
for a single moving Krauss to

second moved Geers to third
base, Alec Stiver's bunt down
the third-base line scored
Krauss with the only run.
"We looked good in the
beginning but you have to get
more than three hits," Faulkner
said. "Manatee swung the bats
well."
Manatee grabbed a 5-1 lead
by scoring five runs on six hits


in the second inning with the
help of three doubles and three
singles.
In the third inning, Venice
had opportunity to score by
loading the bases on a walk, hit
batsman and error, but could-
n't get the key hit.
The Hurricanes (12-14)
added four runs in the fourth
inning on two walks, two hits
and two errors to take a 9-1
lead.
Manatee ended it in the
sixth inning with two more hits

Venice captures regional win

BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Nineteen games into the sea-
son, Venice's Mindee Hasbrouck
got her chance in the Sebastian
River Tournament.
Ever since April 10, the junior
has been in the Lady Indians'
starting lineup and on Tuesday
night came through with her
biggest hit of the season in the
Class 5A-Region 3 quarterfinal
at Venice High.
Hasbrouck's two-run single
keyed a four-run fourth inning
as the Lady Indians edged
Seminole Osceola, 5-1, to
advance to the regional semi-
final.
"We didn't have a slot to put
her in then she fell into one in
the tournament and has been
in ever since," Venice coach
Larry Sandburg said. "She did-
n't complain and hung in
there and has played every
game since. She has a nice
short swing."
Venice (20-7-1) hosts Mana-
tee (24-4) in the regional semi-
final at 7 p.m. Friday. Manatee
beat Seminole, 6-3, in their
quarterfinal game.
This is the fourth meeting
between the teams this season.

After coming off a 12-1
senior season, James
Auxier, Kyle Gilbert and
Jamie Owen weren't ready
to call it quits.
The 18-year-olds, who
will receive partial schol-
arships, signed letters of
intent to attend college
and play football.
Auxier, a 6-foot-2, 245
pound nose guard, and
Kyle Gilbert, a 6-1, 275
pound offensive guard,
will continue their playing
days on the same field
after signing with NAIA
Missouri Valley College in
Marshall, Mo.
Owen, a 6-foot-i, 220
pound linebacker, will
join a former teammate
at Maryville College in
Tennessee.
"Last year I didn't think
I was going to play at all
(after high school), but
after my senior year I just
couldn't walk away from
it," Owen said.
Auxier liked the coach-
es and what the school
had to offer.
"They told me what I
wanted to hear that I
would get a good educa-

Two of the most accomplished
Venice High male swimmers signed
with Division I colleges on Monday at
the Venice High.
Three-time state place-winners
Mark Cox and Tyler Revels will con-
tinue swimming at the collegiate
level with Division I Florida State
University and Division I Gardner-
Webb University in Boiling Springs,
N.C.
"I'm really excited," Cox said about
his decision. "I felt really connected
with the team. I got to know the coach
a lot. Teammates were great. It's in-
state and cheaper for my parents and
also they have all the majors I want to
major in."
"A perfect fit for me," Revels said. "I
always wanted to go to North
Carolina. It's beautiful there. It's a
small school but got about 5,000 peo-
ple there so you get the speciality that
you need. It has an economics and
business major which I want to do.
The coach is really cool. They are a
really good swim team."
Cox will receive a partial athletic
scholarship which covers most of his
tuition.
"This is a big step," said Cox, who
has a 3.5 GPA. "My parents are really
proud and this is basically everything
for me."
Other colleges looking at Cox
included North Carolina State and
Virginia Tech University.

KNOWING THE
SYMPTOMS AND
SIGNS OF STROKE


INNOVATIVE NEW TREATMENT SAVES

PRECIOUS MINUTES FOR STROKE VICTIMS

When it comes to treating stroke, timing is critical. The longer the flow of
blood to the brain is interrupted, the greater the likelihood of lasting impairment.
By treating patients as quickly as possible after a stroke event, physicians are
able to minimize potential loss of movement, memory and speech. Fortunately,
Venice Regional Medical Center is now offering an exciting new endovascular
procedure that can significantly extend the treatment window for people
suffering from stroke.

Known as the Merci Retriever, this catheter-type procedure uses a tiny
corkscrew-shaped device that is introduced into the body through an incision in
the groin and guided through the arteries, up to the brain, where it can trap and
remove blood clots. Think of it as similar to clearing a clogged pipe. The flow of
blood is instantly restored, hopefully mitigating any damage done to the brain,
Because the procedure actually removes clots instead of just dissolving them, the
treatment is safe for post-operative patients. The process is painless, with patients
receiving a mild sedative to help them relax.

One of the most promising aspects of the Merci system is its ability to
remove the clot quickly and extend the treatment window. Traditional measures
had to be implemented within three hours of the onset of stroke symptoms. The
Merci Retriever can be used within an eight-hour timeframe. This is important
because it often takes people a while to realize they are suffering from a stroke
and get themselves to a hospital.

Dr. Craig Reiheld is an interventional radiologist at VRMC who has seen
firsthand the effectiveness of the Merci system. "Our goal has always been to try
to catch strokes as early as possible before the stroke has time to destroy the
brain', he said. "Merci allows us to do that by significantly extending the treat-
ment period. We have had good success with our stroke patients using Merci.
Most people are able to go home in a few days. Some may have residual problems
and need therapy, but the outcome could have been much different and much
worse without the Merci Retriever."

The Merci system has been available at the stroke care center at VRMC for
three months. It is the only FDA-approved medical device for removing blood
clots from the brains of people suffering from ischemic stroke (the most common
kind). Although relatively new, the Merci Retriever has been used to treat thou-
sands of stroke victims around the world.

May is National Stroke
Awareness Month, an excellent
opportunity to remind ourselves
about the serious health risks
posed by stroke and the warn-
ing signs of this all-too-common
disease.
A stroke occurs when the flow
of blood to the brain is inter-
rupted, usually by a blood clot
blocking an artery or a bursting
blood vessel. When this happens,
brain cells begin to die. As the
cells die, abilities controlled by
that area of the brain are lost, such
as speech, movement and memory.
How a stroke patient is affected
depends on what part of the brain
is damaged. Some people recover
fully from a minor stroke, while
others may lose function on a
permanent basis. More than two-
thirds of stroke victims sustain
some type of ongoing disability.
Unfortunately, stroke strikes
people of all ages and ethnicities.
Some risk factors are beyond our
control, such as age, race, gender
and family history. (For example,
men are more likely to suffer
strokes, but women are more
likely to die from them. Also,
your risk of stroke doubles for
every decade after age 55.) Other
risk factors can be influenced by
our behavior, including smoking,
alcohol abuse, high cholesterol and
blood pressure, and obesity. Talk
with your doctor for specific sug-
gestions on lifestyle changes you
can take to help reduce your risk
of stroke.
If you believe you are having
a stroke, you should seek immedi-
ate medical attention. Symptoms
of stroke include: sudden numb-
ness or weakness of the face, arm
or leg (especially on one side of
the body); sudden confusion or
trouble speaking; sudden diz-
ziness or loss of coordination;
sudden severe headache with no
known cause.

stroke awareness and recovery,

The underwater journey is long, but sea turtles return annually to Venice area beaches to build nests and lay their eggs.





Home again


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


It's time for another of Mother Nature's mysteries
to play itself out on area beaches.
On or about May 1, sea turtles will come home
again home to the beaches where they were born
some 20 or more years ago. Nesting females will come
ashore to dig nests and fill them with 100 or more
pingpong-ball-sized eggs, which will hatch 47 to 60
days later. In the Venice area, where the sand is dark-
er and warmer than on other beaches, turtles are
more likely to hatch within 47 to 50 days of nesting.
Ideally, both nesting females and their hatchlings will
be guided only by the light of the moon and stars dur-
ing their nocturnal crawls.
Consider the changes that can occur over 20 or 30
years in any one place. Hundreds of years ago, those
changes were limited to what might occur naturally
from the tides, or in the most severe cases, hurricanes
and other violent storms. For all those years,
natural predators such as
raccoons, coyotes and
shore birds caused the
most damage by either
breaking into the nests
and eating the eggs ,, b.
or picking off the ?:*.'* e -
hatchlings as l
they scampered
toward the rel-
ative safety of
the water.
Since the arrival of humans to coastal
areas, homes and condos and jetties and piers and
electric lights have transformed beaches into alien
territory for the turtles, increasing the odds against
their survival to the point that just one of 1,000 hatch-
lings is likely to grow to the age of sexual maturity. If
just half of those are nesting females, the true odds
are closer to one in 2,000 hatchlings that will be able


to reproduce and continue the species. If the average
nest contains 100 eggs, that means it takes 20 nests to
come up with that one special turtle.
In cities such as Venice, where there are homes,
condos, parks and parking lots along the beach, elec-
tric lights near the beach pose additional problems
for the turtles, who have enough problems with
wild animals that associate the beaches with
food because so many humans either
feed them or leave scraps from their pic-
nics.
Disoriented by artificial light shining on
the beach, turtles too often veer off course '
and into harm's way, often ending up on j
the street or in a parking lot where they lyj
can be hit by cars. The farther away from
their safety zone, the water, they go, the
better chance they have of becoming the
prey of the wild animals as well as humans.
Venice is doing even more this season
Over the years, guided by researchers from Mote
Marine Laboratory and Aquarium and its many
S volunteers in the sea turtle pro-
gram, and by state and federal
conservation laws, Venice has
become a proactive city in
regard to turtles.
In 1995, the city enacted
City Ordinance 95-07,
Lighting Restrictions
During Marine Turtle
Nesting Season. City
Code Enforcement officer John Patek, with
help from Mote's Sea Turtle Program Director
S Tony Tucker and others, regularly patrols the
beaches to find and correct problems.
"It doesn't really get too active until later in
May," Patek said. "The hatchlings mostly appear in
August and September, and that is right in the middle
of storm season."


Patek said he patrols between the jetties and
Sharky's On The Pier.
This year, the city's grants writer, Valerie Raney, was
successful in securing $5,647 from the Caribbean
Conservation Corporation for sea turtle friendly
s light shields at the Venice Fishing Pier and at
the Venice Jetty.
"None of these are FPL lights," Tucker said.
"In an ideal world we would like to see
all the lights shielded but there is
not enough money."
As an alternative, as this was be-
ing written, Tucker was looking
forward to an April 28 meeting
near the Venice Jetties with repre-
sentatives of Florida Power & Light
and other turtle volunteers about the possibility of tilt-
ing some of the lights near the beach, to mitigate some
of the effects of those lights in regard to the turtles.
"We will be going light by light," he said. "There are
about 55 lights. We will be taking baby steps to not
compromise the safety of humans out of concern for
the need of the turtles to have dark beaches."
Furniture left at the beach and sea walls are other
deterrents for nesting turtles.
Sea turtle season
May 1 to Oct. 31, these endangered sea creatures
need as much help as humans can give them. On
Venice beaches, most of the turtles will be logger-
heads, which can weigh as much as 200 pounds, and
are listed as threatened according to the federal
Endangered Species Act. Green turtles, a smaller
species that used to be prevalent in this area until
over-harvested for their eggs and meat, are less often
seen. Last season there were 1,148 loggerhead nests
and six green sea turtle nests in the area from Long-
boat Key to the Venice Fishing Pier.
Volunteers trained by Mote will patrol the beaches

Please see TURTLES, 10B


If you see a live or dead turtle on the beach, call the turtle stranding pager
number, 988-0212.
Certified turtle watchers wear Mote Turtle Patrol T-shirts. They operate in
teams, concentrating on specific sections of area beaches. No other person
should handle turtles or nests.
If you see an unauthorized person touching a turtle or turtle nest, call Mote
Marine's sea turtle line at (941) 388-4331, or the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission at (888) 404-SWCC (7922).
For information about the county's Sea Turtle Protection Ordinance, or to
report a potential sea turtle hazard in your area, call Sarasota County


Environmental Services, 861-6100. For general information about the Sarasota
County Sea Turtle Program, call Debby Zeilman at the Sarasota Country
Department of Natural Resources: 861-6222.
For information regarding lighting during turtle nesting season, call city of
Venice Code Enforcement officer John Patek, 486-2626.
For free sea turtle educational materials and awareness tags to place on
beach furniture, call 861-6257.

teer turtle patroller, call Tony Tucker at 388-4441, ext. 470.

the handle. Bend your knees slightly,
and slowly rotate your upper body,
from left to right, from the waist and
hips. Once you begin raking, be sure
to use short, compact raking
motions, and keep your knees loose
but not locked. Moving as you rake
will stress your back less than if
you stay in one place and reach.

P.S. Vary raking with bagging
leaves. This will serve to lessen
fatigue of certain muscles and
produce a more balanced
workout.

Web site features


school attendance zones


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT


The Sarasota County School District
has posted a set of new attendance
zone maps on its Web site to help resi-
dents and potential home buyers
quickly identify the schools their chil-
dren will attend.
The maps incorporate the latest geo-
graphic information system technolo-
gy for users to see the entire district or
zoom in on a particular street with the
click of a mouse.
From the home page of www.
sarasotacountyschools.net, users can
click on the Attendance Zones link on
the lower left. From there they can click
on links for elementary, middle or high
schools to see a map of the county and a
list of all the schools in that category.
Schools are numbered on the list; click-


ing on the number of a particular school
in the overall category map brings up a
map that includes the major streets and
many secondary streets within that
school's attendance boundaries.
The maps are in Adobe portable
document format, a widely used file
format that allows users to zoom in for
a closer view and to search for words
within the document. For example,
users can search within the map for the
name of their street. The maps also can
be printed.
"These new maps will be a helpful
tool for parents and other interested
citizens," said Micki Ryan, planning
analyst for the district's Long Range
Planning Department. "We created
them using advanced technology to
make it easier for people to see where
the attendance zones are for individual
schools."

RELISH COOKCABULARY: A DICTIONARY FOR COOKS


Monosodium glutamate (MSG)


BY JO MARSHALL
CONTRIBUTOR,
RELISH MAGAZINE


A white powder with little
taste of its own, MSG (mono-
sodium glutamate) is one of the
world's most common food
additives. Chemically speaking,
it's a sodium (salt) derived from
glutamic acid (an amino acid, or
protein). Commercially speak-
ing, it's a powerful flavor
enhancer used in everything
from canned soup to take-out
chicken.
MSG began its ascent to
ubiquity in 1908, when a
Japanese chemist found it pro-
duced a savory flavor, distinct
from the sweet, sour, salty and

bitter tastes recognized by gour-
mands of the time. He dubbed
the flavor umami, Japanese for
"delicious." He further noted
that a sea vegetable Japanese
cooks had used for centuries
was particularly rich in the stuff.
Boom! Scientists went to work
to extract it, and a multinational
industry was born.
While the FDA maintains
that MSG is perfectly safe
when consumed at typical lev-
els, opponents blame it for
maladies ranging from ADHD
to Alzheimer's. If you suspect
you might be sensitive, avoid-
ing it practically requires a

crushed red pepper as you like.

Interestingly, the health
risks of MSG came to light only
after major food processors


1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1. Heat oil in a heavy saucepan. Add shallots,
garlic and crushed red pepper; cook over low
heat until fragrant and just beginning to color,
about 3 minutes.
2. Whisk in peanut butter, hoisin, brown sugar
and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and
simmer 1 minute. Stir in lime juice.
3. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes
1 1/2 cups.

well with other dogs at the dog park but would like to be
the only animal in your home so she can get all the
attention. She has gone through some obedience train-
ing and listens well. Dutchess likes to be with children
ages 8 and older. She loves to go for rides in the car. To

all season, getting out on
the sand as the first bit of
sun starts to rise. When
they find tracks coming
out of the water and up
onto the sand, they fol-
low the tracks to the spot
where the female made
her nest and dig down
just enough to determine
if there are eggs. If so,
they write the pertinent
information and location
on a tall stake used to
mark the nest and then
cover the nest with a 3-
foot by 3-foot square of
hardware cloth, which
serves to protect the nest
from digging animals. If
there are no eggs, the
spot is recorded as a false
crawl.
Turtles are guided by
the moon and stars and
what Tucker refers to as
"natal fidelity" to find
their way back to approx-
imately the same beach
where they hatched some
30 or so years earlier.
The dark sand in
Venice draws more heat
from the sun, which not
only hastens the hatch-
ing but also influences
the sex of the turtles. Eggs
incubated in the hot sand
are more likely to be
females. Nesting contin-
ues almost until August
and hatchlings emerge
from about mid-June
until about mid-October
along Venice area beach-
es.
The same turtle will
nest about five times dur-
ing the season. Mating
takes place out in the
Gulf during April. Sea tur-
tles generally mate with
more than one partner.
You can help
If you live near the


beach, close your cur-
tains and draperies at
night. Shield any outside
lights. If shielding is not
advisable for safety rea-
sons, change the light
bulbs to red, especially
red from light-emitting
diodes. To learn more
about the best lights for
your installation, visit
research.myfwc.com and
click on sea turtles.
Stay off the beaches at
night. If you do go, do not
use flashlights or even a
cigarette lighter, lest you
confuse a turtle. Do not
build bonfires at the
beach.
If you see a nesting
turtle come ashore, stay


back away from it and
behind it. Do not take
pictures for the brief flash
of your camera can dis-
orient and frighten the
turtle.
If you see someone
tampering with a nest or
touching a sea turtle,
contact the nearest law
enforcement agency.

SOCIAL COLUMNIST

The Plantation Communi-
ty Foundation grant appreci-
ation luncheon April 9 hon-
ored grant recipients for
making a difference in South
Sarasota County and distrib-
uted $100,000 in grants to
more than 40 agencies.
Mary Helfrick, president
of the foundation, said, "Our
aim is making a difference to


One of the bartenders at Venice Theatre's lobby is Paul
Bekkenhuis, who cheerfully served patrons April 10.


the citizens of South Sarasota
County who are not as fortu-
nate as we are."
Through hard work and
several fundraising events
throughout the year, the
foundation topped its expec-
tations by about $20,000. The
grant money will be used for
a wide variety of needs
including office equipment
and computers, food vouch-
ers, facility improvements,
scholarships, services and
learning programs. Many
local citizens will benefit
from this foundation's gen-
erosity.
Quiet on the set!
Murray and Lori Chase
had the audience mesmer-
ized by their powerful per-
formances as George and
Martha in "Who's Afraid of
Virginia Woolf?" April 10 at
Venice Theatre's Pinkerton


Theatre.
The intimate theater-in-
the-round seating made
the audience feel as if they,
too, were guests in the
Woolfs' living room along
with Nick and Honey, ably
portrayed by Doug Landin
and Molly Healy. The the-
ater kindly allows patrons
to bring beverages pur-
chased at the lobby bar to
their seats, which added to
the illusion of participating
in the action.
One patron, however,
took this to the extreme
when he brought in a sand-
wich and chips from a
restaurant and proceeded
to munch on them through-
out much of the first scene
while sitting only feet from
the cast. Special credit must
go to the players for main-
taining their concentration
in the face of such uncon-


scionable rudeness.
We are very fortunate to
have this renowned theater
in Venice and should show
our appreciation by being
respectful patrons.
Scrambling for eggs
Venice MainStreet spon-
sored an Easter egg hunt at
the Gazebo in Centennial
Park April 11, with assistance
from members of the Lions
Club and the Venice Area
Young Professionals. Divided
into four age groups, kids had
an opportunity to scoop up
eggs, some with prizes inside.
It wasn't so much a matter of
finding them just seeing
how many could be picked
up before they were gone.
The kids and their helpers
all seemed to have a jolly
time. Many thanks to all the
volunteers who made this
event a success.


Lorin Pierce, 6, has a rain-
bow painted on her cheek.

April 11.


What's more fun than finding an Easter egg? Filling it with
water at the Children's Interactive Fountain, as Dylan
Florio, 2, discovered.

It's A SNAP!
If you have not been to The
Players in Sarasota lately,
you have not been to The
Players.
I am still smiling about its
production of the Marvin
Hamlisch/Howard Ashman
musical, "Smile," which
showcased the breadth of
talent along the Cultural Coast
of Florida. The Players is pure
community theater. Its
performers are amateurs but,
like the ones at Venice, they
are well-trained amateurs,
with great professional
guidance from their directors.
Hot on the heels of "Titanic,"
which was a huge production,
"Smile" had a cast of 27,
including about six who were
new to the stage. Players
Artistic Director Jeffrey Kin
said those six will be back
again next year in bigger roles.
That is at least half the fun of
community theater the
opportunity to see talent
blossom as young people
advance from taking their first
steps on stage to stardom a
few years later. "Smile" had all
of that with examples like
Trina Rizzo, Kathleen Abney
and Kristina Greco.
May 1, 2 and 3, The Players
is presenting The Contempo-
rary Arts Variety Show, the
latest production in the
theater's SNAP (Something
New At Players) series. Featur-
ing a little bit of everything,
this production includes
"Things Worth Remember-
ing," an original play by
Players Artistic Director Jeffrey
Kin, who has theater in his
bones, a work ethic that
knows no bounds and a
wonderful heart. With Players
Grand Poo Bah (Managing
Director) MichelleBianchi
Pingel, Kin is making a
wonderful impact on the
area's oldest theater. The
Players will be 80 next season.

COVER STORY

Scott Vitale has 'Willy Wonka' lead


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Opening next on Venice
Theatre's main stage is
Roald Dahl's "Willy
Wonka and the Choco-
late Factory with Scott
Vitale, a product of
Venice Theatre's educa-
tion department, as the
Candy Man.
The delightful musical
about the famous candy
man and his factory runs
May 5-24, Tuesday
through Saturday
evenings at 8 p.m. and
Sundays at 2 p.m.
The stage version of
Dahl's book, "Charlie and
the Chocolate Factory,"
includes songs such as
"The Candy Man," from
the 1971 film adaptation,
while also teaching some
lessons beneficial to
both children and adults.
The basic story is about
Wonka's attempt to find
an heir for his factory. To
find the perfect person,
Wonka comes up with
some interesting tests for
the children in the
running. The stage
version was adapted by
Leslie Bricusse and Tim
McDonald, with lyrics by
Anthony Newley and
music by Newley and
Bricusse.
Directed and choreo-
graphed by Brad Wages,
with musical direction by
Michael Sebastian, "Willy
Wonka and the Choco-
late Factory" promises to
be a sweet ending to a
strong season of theater

back as the Terminator
after all, despite his day
job as California governor.
Schwarzenegger
confirmed in aWebcast


interview that his image
might appear in next
month's "Terminator:
Salvation," the fourth
movie in the franchise
about a showdown
between humanity and

The governor says he
made it clear he had no
time to shoot new footage
but that the filmmakers
are playing with technolo-

from the earlier "Termina-

Schwarzenegger says he
told director McG he will
come to the premiere of
the movie, which stars
Christian Bale as leader of
the human resistance

ROAD TRIP-
Let's Go! Page 8


April 29-30, 2009


Discovering the treasures of Pine Island


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Thar's treasure at Pine
Island.
Some say there is
buried treasure left over
from the days when
Spanish pirates sailed
along the west coast of
Florida. The island is said
to have been home to
pirate Brewster Baker in
the 1700s and the
legendary Ponce de Leon
also is said to have plied
the area's waters, so
buried treasure is indeed
a possibility.
Definitely there is an
assortment of modern-
day treasure charming
shops, restaurants, tree
farms and even the
Calusa Heritage Trail at
the Randall Research
Center.
The shops include
more than a dozen
galleries in buildings as
colorful as the merchan-
dise. With names like the
Paisley Parrot and the
WildChild Gallery and
exteriors painted in
stripes, polka dots and
clashing combinations of
tropical colors, the shops


and galleries of Matlacha
(Mat-La-Shay) are a feast
for the eyes. So are the
gallery interiors and the
artwork, which ranges
from hand-made paper
to brightly painted
switch-plate covers or
fantasy fish fabricated
from palm frond parts. At
Blue Water Trading,
choose from Adirondack
chairs with tropical-
design cut-out trim on
the backs. Painted
furniture is to be found at
Bonnie's Art gallery and
altered Polaroid images
are available at the
Florida Gallery in
Bokeelia.
The merchants sponsor
what they call Creative
Coast Weekends monthly
from October to April
and one in June. That is
set for Jun 12-13 this year
and will include shops
and galleries in Mat-
lacha, Bokeelia and St.
James City.
Because it took more
than 90 minutes to get
there from Venice, my
friend Rosemary Altea
and I headed first for the
historic Tarpon Lodge


where we enjoyed a great
Sunday brunch with
friends Pam Miner and
Lisa Sbuttoni of the
Edison-Ford Estates in
Fort Myers. Sbuttoni
lives on Pine Island and
was our hostess and
guide for the afternoon.
The food was every bit
as good as the view of
neighboring islands in
the Pine Island Sound.
We started with cups of
tasty crab and corn
chowder. My Portobello
mushroom salad was
super and the crab cakes
got rave reviews as did
the chocolate cake slice
we split four hours as we
were quite full by then.
The lodge is at 13771
Waterfront Drive. It can
house some 60 overnight
guests and offers dining
inside and, when the
weather cooperates,
outside in a screened
lanai. For dining or
lodging reservations, call
239-283-3999 or visit
www.tarponlodge.com.
After lunch we strolled
the grounds of the inn
and then crossed the
street to check out the


Calusa Heritage Trail at
the Randall Research
Center. One of the major
Calusa Indian villages
was said to be there until
about 1,500 years ago
when the natives suc-
cumbed to a variety of
illnesses and diseases
brought by the white
men exploring the
coastal area at the time.
What remains is a large
midden or shell mound,
where the Calusas
stashed their trash,
leading the way by
creating Florida's earliest
landfills. Also left in the
area are remnants of one
of many Calusa canals,
by which the Native
Americans could get
from one village to
another within their
domain. Calusa canals
were about 5- to 6-feet
deep and some 30 feet
wide.
Burial mounds of sand
are said to be in the
woods on the 50-acre
research center site. The
3,700-foot trail is well-
marked with informative
signs that educate
visitors about the


Calusas and their
culture. The site's address
is 13810 Waterfront
Drive. The trail is open
daily from 10 a.m. to 4
p.m. and its gift shop is
open until 2 p.m. To
schedule group tours,
call 239-282-2157.
Pine Island and
Matlacha together
comprise one of the
three regions of Gulf
Coast that make up the
Great Calusa Blueway, a
mecca for boaters and
kayakers. Estero Bay and
the Caloosahatchee River
are the general areas of
the other two segments
of the Blueway.
Checking out Pine
Island by road is far
easier. State Route 78
becomes Pine Island
Road, which leads
through the center of
Little Pine Island to Pine
Island.
Cross over what is
described as the "World's
Fishingist Bridge"
(almost always crowded
with fishermen) to the
largest area of shops,
including the Great Licks
Ice Cream Store and


Seaweed Gallery. (Later
in the afternoon, we
enjoyed the homemade
ice cream after exploring
all the shops along that
stretch of road.)
Turn right on Stringfel-
low Road to head toward
the Tarpon Lodge or to
Bokeelia, the town at the
end of the island. Turn
left to head toward the
other end of the island
and James City, home of
the Two Fish, one of
several other places that
offer lodging on the
island. Also plentiful are
places to rent boats or
kayaks or sign up for
boat tours.
If you are in to tropical
trees and plants, the
island is home to several
large tree and plant
farms. A few are open to
the public.
For information about
Pine Island,

chamber.org, www.flori-
dascreativecoast.com or

land.com. Call the
chamber at 239-283-0888

hours.

Florida Studio presents 'Black Pearl Sings'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Newly opened at Florida
Studio Theatre is "Black
Pearl Sings," by Frank
Higgins.
It is the story of Susan-
nah (Forrest Richards), a
song historian determined
to make a name for herself
as a collector of undiscov-
ered music of the past.
When she meets Pearl
(Alice M. Gatling), an
African-American prisoner
in a southern jail, it seems
as though she may have
found her ticket to
Harvard.
Directed by FST's
associate artistic director
Kate Alexander, "Black


Pearl," which was work-
shopped at the theater in
Sarasota a year ago, is
riveting the quintessen-
tial result of a good story
meeting a great director
and two extraordinarily
fine actors. The end result
was a show that left the
stage and became
entwined with the audi-
ence and the audience
with it.
FST's fine reputation is
tied to Alexander and to
Richard Hopkins, the
theaters artistic director
because of shows such as
this one, which came
about, according to
Hopkins, as a result of one
question: who owns


culture?
Shades of"A Brief
History of White Music"
from the Goldstein
Cabaret's 1998-1999
season or "Shakespeare's
Greatest Hits" that same
season. While the music is
different, there is a
common thread of
ownership or, at the very
least, cultural identity.
Within the Black Pearl
story, there is a fair
amount of bartering as
Pearl discovers that
Susannah can profit from
the music. Pearl's chip is
her daughter, who is
missing somewhere in the
south. She refuses to give
up her music unless she


gets some help from
Susannah.
As Higgins' story and the
bartering escalate, and the
relationship zigs and zags,
so do the emotions of
these two extraordinary
women. That the music is
as breathtakingly powerful
as the story, directing and
the acting, makes this one
very special production.
Gatling's voice and
acting are perfection, and
Richards shows yet
another side of her multi-
faceted range of talents.
That Alexander has a
knack for directing musical
plays, is the icing on the
cake.
Richards was a last-


minute substitute in the
role of Susannah and did it
flawlessly Friday night,
April 17, even to stepping
aside so that Gatling could
enjoy the standing ovation
on her own. Richards is a
class act.
The set was designed by
Roman Tatarowicz
with lighting by Michael
Foster. Marcella Beckwith
designed the costumes.
"Black Pearl Sings"
continues through May 30
in the Keating Theatre at
Florida Studio Theatre,
1241 N. Palm Ave., Saraso-
ta. Tickets are $19-$32
per person.

'Blackbird' takes flight


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Gripping ... powerful
... sad ... creepy ...
disturbing ...
So many words, yet even
these are not enough to
describe the results of one
adult/child relationship
that went so wrong so
many years ago.
In "Blackbird," the
newest offering in the
Gompertz Theater at
Sarasota's Florida Studio
Theatre, playwright David
Harrower tells the story
from the side of Una
(Sarah Stockton), the
victim. Just 12 at the time
she had sex with the 40-
year-old "family friend,"
she has been haunted by
the experience ever since.
That it was not the act but
the aftermath is what
drives this new variation of


the classic "Lolita" tale.
Harrower's tale takes place
many years later when
Una confronts Ray (Dan
Patrick Brady) at his
workplace after seeing his
picture in a magazine and
tracking him down.
Ray has changed his
name and seems to have
tried to make a new life for
himself after prison for his
crime. When confronted
by Una, he is both fearful
and enraged. Brady
showcases these and a
myriad other twisted and
combined emotions
brilliantly as lay after
layer of Ray's convoluted
personality is exposed.
Stockton's character is
simpler, mostly because
of Una's somewhat
arrested state of develop-
ment because of the
crime. Though it is years

later, in many ways, Una
is still the 12-year-old, still
(at least subconsciously)
waiting for her lover to
return. Directed by Beth
Duda, Harrower's "Black-
bird" mesmerizes the
audience with the twists
and turns of a story that is
both more and also less
than it seems. There is
even a surprise ending -
or is there?
There is even some sort
of poetic justice that this
somewhat messy scenario
is played out in a very
messy break room at
Ray's place of business.
Lauren Feldman is the
scenic designer. Cos-
tumes are by Marcella
Beckwith and lighting by

'Norman, Is That You?' at Lemon Bay Playhouse


STAFF REPORT
ENGLEWOOD -When
a lonely dry cleaner from
Ohio whose wife has left
him for another man
unexpectedly drops in on
his son, some very funny
situations can arise.
Playwrights Ron Clark and
Sam Bobrick have trans-
formed a potential tragedy
into comedy in a play at
Lemon Bay Playhouse.
"Norman, Is That You?"
is the theater's fifth play of
this season and is being
directed by Rita Corn. The


play runs through May 17.
"In this extremely funny
play, Ben Chambers, a dry
cleaner from Ohio, played
by Ron Bupp, arrives
unexpectedly for a visit
with his son Norman,
played by JimWalsh,"
playhouse executive
director James E.
Hanushek said.
"Ben has been hoping
for some solace since his
wife, Beatrice, has run
away with his own
brother. After arriving at
his son's NewYork apart-


ment, Ben finds no solace,
but a few surprises, which
lead to some hilarious
moments," Hanushek
added.
The plot thickens when
a prostitute, Mary, played
byWanda Malloy, appears
on the scene. To make
matters worse, Beatrice,
played by Ann Shaugh-
nessy, also shows up at
Norman's apartment,
Hanushek said.
"A family therapist,
Garson Hobart, played by
Jefferson Halpin, tries to


counsel Ben, but his
efforts are of little avail.
The problems that ensue
are sure to entertain and
keep the audience
laughing," Hanushek said.
Tickets for "Norman, Is
That You?" are available
online at www.lemonbay-
playhouse.com or at the
box office, 96 West
Dearborn St. in Engle-
wood. The box office is
open weekdays from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m.

loy and (standing left to right) Jefferson Halpin, Ron Bupp
