LaMorte challenges sentence


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Convicted sex offender James
LaMorte, a former Venice High
teacher and swim coach, has
filed a motion to have his sen-
tence reduced.
In the handwritten motion q.
mailed from Taylor Correc-
tional Institution in Perry, Fla.,
LaMorte said the wrong sen- LaM te
tencing guidelines were used
at his trial. It resulted in the
awarding of victim injury points that he says
wrongly extended his prison sentence, accord-
ing to the motion.
Twelfth Circuit Court Judge Deno Economou
reviewed the motion and ordered the state to
respond.
Dawn Buff, assistant state attorney for the
12th Judicial Circuit, prepared the sentencing
score sheet in LaMorte's case. On Monday, she
said she had read LaMorte's latest filing but was-
n't prepared to comment.
In September 2006, LaMorte was found
guilty of one count of sexually abusing a student


and sentenced to 12 years, and one count of at-
tempted abuse against another carrying a sen-
tence of nine years.
The abuse took place in the 1980s and 1990s.
LaMorte said in the motion he was sentenced
under 1983 guidelines "which improperly as-
sessed victim injury points for penetration con-
trary to law espoused by the state" in 1990. In
support of his motion LaMorte cites a Florida
Supreme Court holding that victim injury
points in effect at the time of an offense cannot
be added to a defendant's scoresheet for victim
injury in sexual abuse cases.
On both counts, LaMorte received 216 points
for the crime and 40 additional points for "pen-
etration/slight injury" for a total of 256 points.
Under state guidelines the recommended sen-
tence was five and a half to seven years. La-
Morte received the maximum sentences allow-
ed, to run one after the other.
Relief sought
LaMorte said his attorney and prosecutors
"should have caught the error in the score sheet
but failed to do so."

Confusion lingers over



South Jetty beach access


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


For nearly 20 years Venice
resident Steve Kimson and his
family have used the South
Jetty to access the Gulf to fish,
surf and kayak. Today he's wor-
ried the public's right to access
the South Jetty beach is being
eroded.
"Private property" signs
bordering the Jetty Villas Con-
dos dot the treed area that sep-
arate the condos and the
beach, even though its proper-
ty extends farther out onto the
beach.
Shaded benches that served
as a favorite spot for beach-
goers are now gone and a sand
berm separates the jetty park-
ing lot from the area.
"The South Jetties is the best
place for surfing in Venice,"
Kimson said. Now, he said, it
looks like "some backroom
deal has been done" to deny
public access.
City officials deny any back-
room deals and insist it's a case
of property owners asserting
their rights. They researched
the issue and found the condo
association owns the property
many beach-goers use even
today.
The berm was erected re-
cently on behalf of the condo
association to keep vehicles
from accessing the beach and
driving over unstable riprap, a
concern for city officials, ac-
cording to City Engineer Nan-


cyWoodley
"We wanted to be a good
neighbor. That's how the sand
berm came about ... as a tem-
porary solution," she said. "I
don't know if" public beach
"access was ever lost. If it was,
it wasn't legal."
The source of the controver-
sy is access along the riprap -
large stones that keep sand
from washing away. The riprap
is at the high median water
mark, which means the sand
above it is technically Jetty
Villas property, while the sand
below is public. Winds and
waves take turns covering and
uncovering the rocks at differ-
ent times of the year, making it
hard at times for beach-goers
to know when they're on pub-
lic or private property.
In the past, the sand eroded
so far back the only way to
access it was to walk through
the condo association's private
pathway among the trees.
After renourishment in 2005
the wealth of new sand and
occasional storms completely
covered the riprap in front of
the Jetty Villas. Today it's par-
tially exposed, giving beach-
goers a landmark that helps
establish the boundary.
Riprap
Jetty Villas Condo Associ-
ation was advised six years ago
to place "no trespassing" signs
in the area to protect itself

Another patch for swing bridge


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

When the Blackburn Point
Road bridge in Osprey shuts
down for repairs on May 26, it
will be for at least the ninth
time since 1981.
Altogether, repairs to the 85-
year-old swing bridge one of
just two still operating in
Florida have forced
motorists trying to get onto
Casey Key or getting off to
spend parts of an estimated
180 days using the Albee Road
bridge 8 miles south in
Nokomis to approach the bar-
rier island in the past 28 years.
The May-June closing is
expected to last about a
month. The bridge will be lift-
ed off its center to allow the
mechanism that controls the


swing portion to be fixed. Part
of it was installed in 1925.
More than inconvenience
to motorists stirred the public
about this closing. Two busi-
nesses west of the bridge had
complained to the Sarasota
County at a neighborhood
meeting that the closing, then
scheduled for May 1-18, would
hurt their traffic just before the
Memorial Day weekend.
Dianne Manspeaker, man-
ager of the Gulfsurf Resort
Motel, feared that "this will kill
walk-in traffic for us."
"We've been booked for
Memorial Day for nine
months, so the county has alle-
viated our situation by waiting
until the 26th to start," she
said. "But it's been a night-
mare. I've had to call a lot of
people, who had heard about


the changed dates, who don't
know where the Albee Bridge
is, and who needed reassur-
ance."
Jimmy von Hubertz, owner
of the Casey Key Fish House,
recalled that the contractor
had agreed with him that the
project's start could be delayed
until June without concern.
"But then they started
changing dates, and I feared
we'd lose the holiday weekend
business," he said. "That
would hurt. As it is, with the
May 26 start, we'll be closed all
of June except for weekends at
the tiki bar. That puts 30 peo-
ple out of work for a month."
The possibility of storms in
mid-summer originally con-
vinced the county to move up

FAA: SRQ has had 378

bird strikes since 1990
BY DUANE MARSTELLAR
BRADENTON HERALD


Planes struck birds an average of 20 times a year at
Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport since 1990,
but none resulted in human fatalities, according to a
database made fully public last week.
Pilots reported 378 bird strikes at SRQ between Jan.
1, 1990, and Dec. 31, 2008, the latest date contained in
the Federal Aviation Administration's Bird Strike data-
base.
The FAA made the entire database publicly available
after withdrawing a proposal to keep the data confi-
dential. Portions of the database have been publicly
available since the FAA began collecting data in 1990.
According to the database, nine bird strikes at SRQ
resulted in serious damage to the airplane. Among
them:
A Delta Air Lines jet aborted takeoff after hitting
several laughing gulls on May 12, 2008.
AUS Airways jet sustained severe engine damage,
but landed safely, after striking ospreys or turkey vul-
tures while landing at SRQ on March 17, 2006.
A US Airways jet that
had taken off from SRQ
made a precautionary
landing at Tampa Inter-
national Airport after
hitting several unknown I
types of birds on July 10, Inc
2002.
The database also
showed 321 reported
bird strikes at Tampa
International during the
19-year period, with 12
resulting in significant

1920s Nokomis


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


With the objective of recreating
Florida from the 1920s and restoring a
historical landmark, Dr. Daniel Simic
and his wife, Sandra, are planning a
small downtown village in Nokomis.
The Nokomis Revitalization Com-
mittee and local residents support the
project, which has been approved by
Sarasota County.
Located at Pocono Trail East and
Martha Lane, the project will encom-
pass accommodations, a restaurant,
antiques shops and stores. The Simics
see it appealing to tourists, users of the
Legacy Trail, locals and canoers on
Dona Bay.
Nokomis Bed & Breakfast will be
constructed alongside the existing

Job loss becomes opportunity


It was a new challenge
for construction industry
employee Jacob Lowe
when he was laid off on
New Year's Eve. His wife
was six months pregnant
and he had just pur-
chased a home in South
Venice. In this critical sit-
uation he could not find
work, so he decided with
his father, Steven Lowe,
to franchise a business.
Opening Oxymagic,
760 Azure Road, a carpet,
tile and upholstery clean-
ing service, he enthusias-
tically sought customers.
"I have done 80 jobs in
my first month," said
Lowe.
Oxymagic cleaner is
specially formulated to
be safe and nontoxic to
pets and humans; biode-
gradable; and environ-
mentally friendly. Appli-
ed in a light mist, it
removes dust mites and
allergens while not soak-
ing carpets. After the light
foam is brushed into the
material, everything is
removed with a high-
power vacuum providing
a fast drying time of 30-
90 minutes.
Building on his suc-
cess, he plans to have a
retail outlet in Venice and
expand his service area
into Charlotte and Man-
atee counties by the end
of the year. Office hours
are 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. Call
468-0753.
Lights going out
Due to a combination
of the end of a lease, the
economic downturn and a
lack of construction, con-


struction, Wilson Lighting,
500 South U.S. 41 Bypass,
will close on June 20,
consolidating the busi-
ness to its Bonita Springs,
Naples and Kansas
stores.
Opening in Septem-
ber 2006 during the con-
struction boom, it re-
placed the Light House, a
similar store, bringing to
this area upscale cus-
tom-made lighting and
accessories.
Venice was the only
leased property, with
other stores in Florida
and Kansas being com-
pany owned, larger, in
heavily populated areas
and unaffected by this
consolidation. Call 484-
6886.
Buddy's Pizza
closing
After a hard hit last
summer, the snowbirds
were nonexistent this
season compared to pre-
vious years, leaving Ai-
leen Charlton, owner of
Buddy's Pizza, 822 Pine-
brook Road, no alterna-
tive but to close.
The business opened
20 years ago; Charlton
acquired it in July 2006.
"In three years my
customers have become
good friends, like family,
and I am sorry it could
not go on for another 20
years," said Charlton.
Sixteen employees will
lose their jobs when it
closes on May 17. Call

Commission seeks end


to baseball discussions


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
NORTH PORT
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon
Staub wants to hear the
fat lady sing.
Commissioner Joseph
Barbetta talks about a
deal "at the right price."
Commissioner Nora
Patterson says she's
"about had it."
And Commission
Chair Jon Thaxton calls it
"an understatement ...
(that I've been) frustrated
a long time ago."
The topic Tuesday at
the County Commission
meeting at Venice City
Hall was baseball -
specifically, Baltimore
Orioles spring training
baseball at Ed Smith
Stadium in Sarasota.
Staub, a proponent of
Orioles baseball in Sara-
sota, said next Wednes-
day's county commission
meeting could spell the
end of county interest in
Major League Baseball.
"Next week, if there's
no bonding that's it,"
Staub said.
Approximately $23.5
million needs to be fund-
ed long-term to move
forward any agreement
between Sarasota city
and county and the Or-
ioles. Another $7.5 mil-
lion from a state grant
would be part of the deal,
bringing the amount first


offered to Baltimore to
$31 million. (That offer
was rejected.)
Any increase in the
package would depend
on what is negotiated
into the deal, according
to Dave Bullock, deputy
county administrator.
The county, in its
charter, cannot bond
more than $20 million
without a countywide
referendum. For that rea-
son, the board asked the
city to bond the money,
with repayment to come
through Tourism Devel-
opment Tax dollars.
Last week, Mayor
Richard Clapp said the
city had concerns about
the liability that bonding
would entail. Clapp said
there are misgivings
about a repayment plan
that needs to be reautho-
rized annually by the
county.
He said future com-
missioners might not
approve the reautho-
rization, leaving the city
with the responsibility
to pay.
The city and county
have a joint meeting June
4, but Staub said the
Orioles are not expected
to be part of that discus-
sion.
"We'll talk about the
future of Ed Smith Sta-
dium, but not Major
League Baseball," she
said.
As punctuation to her


statement, Staub said, "I
want to hear the fat lady
sing."
A resolution adopted
Monday by the city of
Sarasota kick-started the
county commissioners'
discussion. The city's res-
olution was a resounding
4-1 "no" to the county-
"no" to any money for a
stadium renovation and
"no" to the idea of a $24
million bond floated by
the city.
City Commissioner
Fredd Atkins was the
lone dissenter. During
the city meeting, Atkins
expressed his displeasure
at "all the third- and
fourth-party" groups in-
volved in the negotia-
tions.
"(The city) is being
totally disrespected in
the process," Atkins said
later. "The city has been
carrying baseball for 82
years."
Atkins said any nego-
tiations would have to
start back at the begin-
ning. He said the county
has to put up "real
money and not TDT"
funds.
Staub said there
would be no hope of
funding the Orioles deal
unless the private sector
came up with a package
possibly involving a
501(c)3 nonprofit group.

the start of construction, according to
Pinky Pakalapati, the county project
manager. In the event of a storm, he
noted, the U.S. Coast Guard will not
allow work to proceed. He said that
once work is stopped, it takes five days
to resume.
That would add 10 to 15 percent to
the cost of the $483,875 project, accord-
ing to Pakalapati.
The longest closing of the swing
bridge occurred in 1981, when it was
struck by a barge. Repairs continued for
about a year.
Safety and hurricane evacuation
concerns, a history of the bridge's
mechanical failures, the 8-ton load
limit on the Dryman Bridge, several
hundred yards to the west, and naviga-


tional clearances above the mean high
water level that were below Coast
Guard standards, prompted county,
state and federal officials to rate both
bridges structurally deficient in 1999.
Twelve years before that, the state
transportation agency concluded that
the bridge should be replaced.
A major overhaul was completed
that year. But the bridge remained
corroded, and machinery was badly
worn.
A comprehensive rehabilitation of
the bridge was recommended in March
1990 by the county.
Despite unanimity among all levels
of government that the bridge should
be replaced, repairs will begin the day
following Memorial Day.


LAMORTE from PagelA


More important to his
case, LaMorte said he
learned from another
inmate that the 1983 sen-
tencing guidelines were
declared unconstitution-
al by the Florida Su-
preme Court.
LaMorte says he's enti-
tled to a correctly pre-
pared score sheet with-
out the victim injury
points, which would
bring his total to 216
points, or a recommend-
ed sentence of three and
a half years to four and a
half years for each of-
fense.
He requested he be
resentenced to terms not


J ETTY from Page 1A


to exceed years four and
a half years.
It's the second appeal
filed by LaMorte.
On Dec. 9, 2008, the
Florida Supreme Court
declined to review
LaMorte's first appeal, to
overturn his conviction
under a law that extends
the statute of limitations
for "misconduct in office
by a public employee."
LaMorte argued the
law applied to those who
hold public office, not to
teachers. While a previ-
ous version of the law did
refer to "terms in office,"
that language was strick-
en in a 1973 rewrite and


against a potential lawsuit, said Council
Member John Moore, who owns a
condo and resided there for three years.
That was in response to incidents
like vehicles trailering kayaks across the
riprap and children jumping from rock
to rock.
"We're lucky no one has been seri-
ously injured from a liability stand-
point," Moore said.
Moore described other instances
like tree cutting, building fires, dogs
running free and overnight camping on
JettyVillas property.
Venice police have been called to the
scene a number of times. Once a condo
resident confronted a youth doing chin
ups on one of its trees. The condo resi-
dent suffered mild heart discomfort
and required an ambulance, Kimson
said.
He's seen tourists who thought they
were on a public beach being accosted
by condo residents.
"They should clarify" the property
line "so people aren't jumped and con-


the word "employee" in-
serted.
The Second District
Court of Appeal had
rejected his argument 2-
1, calling it "without mer-
it," and affirmed La-
Morte's conviction and
sentence.
A student abused in
the 1990s recently filed a
civil suit against LaMorte
and the Sarasota County
School Board. The school
board claims the statute
of limitations had expir-
ed. A jury trial was re-
quested but a date has
yet to be set.

fronted," he said.
Moore agreed beach access is a gray
area in part because signs haven't been
posted at each comer along the proper-
ty line. Even in areas that are posted,
some beach-goers simply ignore them.
"Last weekend people were chang-
ing into their bathing suits among the
trees. They were not obscured from my
view," he said.
"Normally it's not a problem. I've
never known them (Jetty Villas Asso-
ciation) to have a problem with allow-
ing access along the riprap. Historically
that's what has been done. It's never
been a problem as long as people show
a reasonable amount of respect. But
there is always the 1 percent you have
to deal with."
"Frankly there will always be a way
to walk behind the riprap."
Attempts to reach representatives of
the Jetty Villas Condo Association were
unsuccessful.

Sarasota County holds off impact fee reduction


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
NORTH PORT
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Sarasota County com-
missioners declined Tues-
day to make changes in
the current impact fee
schedule, including a
reduction in fees, and
directed county staff
members instead to up-
date impact data so the
board can address the
issue Oct. 1.
The proposed changes
to the ordinance would
have pushed back a pro-
posed fee increase from
June 1, 2009, to June 1,
2010, and implemented a
26 percent rate reduction
through Dec. 10, 2010.
A motion by Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub to
keep the fee at 68 percent
until 2010 and to have
staff update data for Oct.
1 was approved 4-1.
Commissioner Joe Bar-
betta was the dissenting
vote.
Right now, the impact
fee is only 68 percent of
what the board had
approved in 2007. At the
current rate, the impact
fee for a new, 2,000- to
2,999-square-foot, sin-
gle-family dwelling is
$5,774, according to
Clarke Davis, general
manager of Public Works
planning. The fee for a
1,000- to 1,249-square-
foot multifamily dwelling
is $4,759.
At the proposed 50
percent rate, the single-
family building fee would
be $4,256, and the multi-
family building, $3,508.
Impact fees for each
room of a hotel or motel
would drop from $2,052
to $1,513.
Commissioners on
Tuesday repeatedly ques-
tioned the accuracy of
the 2006 "Duncan re-
port" that was used in
2007 as the basis of the


rate schedule.
Duncan Associates
was the county's consul-
tant in the decade's early
years, according to Davis.
When an impact fee
schedule was approved
in 2007, Duncan's report
supplied the technical
support for the schedule.
In the discussion Tues-
day at Venice City Hall,
Staub said, "We've got to
update the schedule."
Commission Chair
Jon Thaxton said an an-
nual review of impact fee
data has been policy for
years, although not fol-
lowed.
"To go up to 100 per-
cent (of the rate sched-
ule), when we know we're
using faulty numbers -
I'm not comfortable with
it," Staub said.
Barbetta said, "I feel
good about the propos-
als." He called any reduc-
tion of fees "a stop-gap."
"I don't think it will
jump-start the econo-
my," he continued. "I
don't see any reason to


do anything. Nobody has
yet to tell me why we're
doing this (reduction)."
The 68 percent impact
fee rate is a continuation
from when the impact
fees were first put in
effect. The impact fee
was to increase to the full
amount on the rate
schedule in 2008. Com-
missioners, reacting to a
worsening economy,
agreed then to postpone
the increase for a year.
The revenue trend for
South County through
March 4 is $645,245 for
residential properties
and $692,745 for com-
mercial and industrial.
When the issue was
brought to the board in
March, commissioners
directed Davis to sched-
ule a public hearing on
an ordinance that, in
addition to deferring the
June 1 increase, would
reduce impact fees ap-
proximately 26 percent.

Flu response is measured and appropriate


It's hard for people not to get a little
edgy when they see photos of peo-
ple with surgical masks on the
front pages of their newspaper morn-
ing after morning and on the TV news
shows night after night.
Health officials around the world
are responding rapidly to the new
strain of swine flu that emerged two
weeks ago in Mexico City. Organiz-
ations from the World Health Organ-
ization and the National Centers for
Disease Control to county health
departments kicked into gear. They're
coordinating with one another, pre-
paring for the worst and sending a
clear message to the public:
Stay alert. Do your homework. Be
calm. Wash your hands.
The coordination and competence
shown so far by public health officials
are reassuring. It's a large step forward




A tough job


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


How would you like to
have a job in which you
had to make decisions
that might negatively
affect your boss' bank
account?
That is the position
that City Attorney Bob
Anderson has found
himself in. The Sunshine
Law case has placed Bob
in a no-win situation. If
he recommends paying
the private attorneys who
represented several city
council members and
others, he will be im-
properly spending the
city's money, thus letting
down the citizens he rep-
resents.
In fact, several of his
bosses (city council
members) did not accept
the attorneys selected to
represent them. The city
is obligated to support
the council members but
it is not obligated to allow
the members to spend
however much money
they want to defend
themselves.
John Moore and oth-
ers opted on their own to
get outside council, and
Judge Moore has attack-
ed Bob more than once
for not recommending
payment of his attorney,
whom he owes quite a bit
- more than $100,000. If
the city code allowed
council members to seek
any attorney they wanted
at any cost, imagine how
exorbitant that could be.
The city offered help in
this case and it was
refused.
I've not heard that any
of those who chose their
own counsel ever went to
the city manager or,
more appropriately, Mr.
Anderson and asked if
the fees would be cov-
ered if they got their own
attorney. Judge Moore
picked a very highly qual-
ified and respected law
firm in the county. With
that comes high fees. He
used bad judgment in
deleting city e-mails and,
I think, in not asking first
about payment for out-
side counsel; that could
cost him a lot.
By denying payment
Bob is risking his job.
Those he is recommend-
ing not paying hold his
job in their hands. It


from the national overreaction to the
swine flu epidemic in the 1970s,
which was later seen to have caused
more problems and deaths than
it might have cured.
So far only five cases of the new flu
have been reported in Florida, with
about 20 more suspected, but officials
said they wouldn't be surprised to see
even more soon. They are preparing
for that possibility.
Health department officials and
representatives from hospitals in
Charlotte, Sarasota and DeSoto coun-
ties have met to share information and
address an appropriate community
response. State health officials are hav-
ing daily meetings to update county
emergency management directors
and health department officials.
In DeSoto County, home to a large
Hispanic population, hospital and


would be funny (ironic,
not ha-ha) if they got rid
of the person who helped
figure out a masterful
way to save face for them
in the Sunshine case by
blaming the city, which
committed no errors.
I agree that it weakens
Bob's argument about
prejudicing the outcome
of the fee hearing that he
and Dale Scott have been
paid. Yet they are the
ones who have been ap-
proved to represent
council. The others were
not approved and their
work is duplicative, at
least in part, of Bob's and
Scott's representation.
We have been lucky to
have had Bob Anderson
representing us over
these last 20 years and
more than 5,000 meet-
ings. He has had the citi-
zens' interests at heart.
My suggestion is: Let's
listen more closely to Mr.
Anderson.

health officials were careful to advise
anyone with flu-like respiratory
symptoms to wear a mask and sani-
tize their hands. In Charlotte County,
health department officials planned
to advise doctors to tell patients with
symptoms to call first before coming
in and possibly spreading the flu to
others.
It's smart to take precautions. If
you think you've caught the flu bug,
call a doctor. While this is the tail end
of the annual flu season, it's impor-
tant to remember it still is the season.
Chances are great your bug is not the
swine flu strain.
The good news also is this flu virus
has been successfully treated with the
common drugs Tamiflu and Relenza.
Drug makers have reported supplies
are good, but they have stepped up
production. State officials also said


they would increase their Tamiflu
stock in coming weeks so that they
have some 500,000 doses on hand,
just in case.
Call a doctor if you experience
symptoms fever, coughing, sore
throat, the same as other strains of flu.
Don't rely on the flu shot you had at
the beginning of the winter; it may
not protect you.
Stay home from work or school if
you are sick. As you would with a cold
or any other type of flu, try not to
spread germs. Wash your hands fre-
quently, cover your nose when you
sneeze and avoid contact with others.
If you have any questions, call your
local health department. On the In-
ternet, try the Web sites www.cdc.gov/
swineflu or wee.pandemicflu.gov.
There's no need for panic, but it's
always wise to stay alert.


LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Let's talk about airport deeds


Editor:
"The airport was here first" and "You must live in
Golden Beach" appear to answer all questions con-
cerning the airport addressed to airport supporters.
They don't answer the questions about runway
design, the festival grounds, legal problems, mainte-
nance, the master plan, flight schools, the golf course,
the environment, safety, managing the airport, jets,
helicopters, the FAA, a marina, deeds, soot, flight pat-
terns, development, noise, hours, smell and closing
the airport.
Guest columnists and airport supporters Yurosko
and Schmieler may be signaling a shift from them to
airport deed language. However, Yurosko's column
mentioned Golden Beach.
Both columnists emphasized Venice's commit-
ment to the airport, not Venice's commitment to the
public. Deed language states "shall be maintained for
the use and benefit of the public at all times." Deeds
do not indicate the airport should benefit individuals,
Main Street or businesses, or be developed, only
maintained. It is hard to counter deed language with
"airport was here first" or "you must live in Golden
Beach."
Venice's flying community, government and the
FAA inherited long-standing airport problems.
Hopefully, these groups will work together on a plan
that will bring the airport into compliance with "ben-
efit of the public at all times" and avoid legal problems
or closing the airport.
"The airport was here first" and "You must live in
Golden Beach" offer little meaningful information for
the planning process or bringing the airport into
compliance with deed language.

The world is
a powder keg
Editor:
Iraq, the Democrats
brayed, was George


Bush's war, as the Dem-
ocratic Party presidential
primary elections re-
volved around which
candidate could boast he
never voted for the war,
while the others fumbled
around attempting to
explain how they were
duped into their deci-
sion.
Painfully to Demo-
crats, Bush's war is near
victory. It's a sore subject
to Harry Reid, who de-
clared the war lost two
years ago as his fellow
party members in Con-
gress snickered at Gen.
David Petraeus and his
"sure to fail" surge.
Now Afghanistan is
Barack Obama's war and
the president, whose
penchant for indecisive-
ness is becoming ever
more apparent, appears
to be losing control of his
effort as violence in the
entire Middle East rapid-
ly escalates even en-
dangering America's vic-
tory in Iraq. And this time
there is no George Bush
to blame.
Obama's war in Af-
ghanistan has now over-
flowed into Pakistan,
where the feckless Pakis-
tani government is only
weeks away from allow-
ing the Taliban to take
over its arsenal of nuclear
weapons.
The war in Afghanis-
tan with the possibility of
Pakistan's terrorist Tali-
ban going nuclear, com-
pounded by Iran build-
ing nukes, North Korea
missile tests, Iraq victory
slipping away, and Ha-
mas continually sticking
its finger in Israel's eye -
how does the Obama
administration intend to
protect America from


this powder keg whose
fuse is getting shorter
every day? By releasing
top secret CIA memos
concerning captive ter-
rorist interrogation tech-
niques and forming
commissions to investi-
gate whether George
Bush and Dick Cheney
should be tried for water-
boarding.

Progress made on 2008 goals


~- V




ED MARTIN
GUEST COLUMNIST


On April 30, Venice
City Council met to
review progress in meet-
ing the city's goals and
priorities established one
year ago. At that time
seven goals were estab-
lished:
1. Sustainable, con-
trolled growth
2. KeepingVenice beau-
tiful
3. Being a model for
eco-friendliness
4. Being a financially
sound city with a high-
performance organiza-
tion
5. Upgrading city in-
frastructure and facilities
6. Having a growing
and diverse economy
7. Having affordable
and workforce housing
City staff has done an
excellent job in charting
progress toward these
goals.
At the recent meeting,
City Manager Isaac Turn-
er asked key staff mem-
bers to provide a brief
review of each goal and
then council followed up
with discussion. The new
process was effective and
efficient and discussion
was completed in one
day.


Examples of progress
include:
Goal 1. The revised
comprehensive planning
process is virtually com-
plete, with the city hav-
ing studied the issues
with the public more ful-
ly than ever before. The
process of developing
and implementing land
development regulations
is already under way. The
strategy of establishing
clear height standards is
in the comp plan pend-
ing final approval.
Goal 2. Development
of two new parks, My-
akka River Park and Rus-
celletto Park, has moved
into the planning stage.
The city, with a matching
state grant, has made a
major improvement by
purchasing Legacy Park,
a valuable 10 acres
downtown. Further, the
cement plants have been
moved from the site.
Approval for beginning
development of the new-
ly named Maxine Barrett
Park on the Gulf is ex-
pected in the near future
from the state.
Progress in the beauti-
fication goal includes
new efforts at tree planti-
ng, including at the
northern intersection of
U.S. 41 and Business 41;
identification of new
green spaces along creeks
and waterways; creating
a public art task force;
and strengthening land-
scaping standards.
Goal 3. A knowledge-
able and active Environ-
mental Task Force has
been created. Assistant
City Engineer Kathleen
Weeden has completed


training and been certi-
fied as a "green planner."
A new harbor manage-
ment plan with environ-
mental components is
nearing implementation
and implementation of
the county fertilizer ordi-
nance in Venice is under-
way.
Goal 4. The city con-
tinues to operate in a fis-
cally sound manner with
more than a 10-percent
reduction in staff over
several years, sound in-
vestments and reason-
able reserves to help pro-
vide security during these
difficult economic times.
Goal 5. We will contin-
ue with downtown im-
provements and have
secured federal stimulus
funding to improve the
utility and safety of the
Harbor Drive and West
Venice Avenue intersec-
tion. We have paved
miles of roads needing
repairs and improved
water and sewer infra-
structure along the Es-
planade and elsewhere.
Council has asked staff to
explore emergency link-
ages between Laurel and
Border roads.
Goal 6. Economic de-
velopment stimulation
includes identifying new
areas in the comprehen-
sive plan for additional
industrial and commer-
cial development. Zon-
ing approval has been
given for four new hotels,
two on the island and
two at Laurel Road and I-
75. (Economic condi-
tions have those projects
on hold but city approval
has been granted.) Anew
Economic Development


Task Force is meeting
regularly and will present
recommendations to
council.
Council set a new pri-
ority on exploring addi-
tional parking downtown
and streamlining the busi-
ness permitting process.
Goal 7. Affordable hous-
ing efforts include ap-
proving plans for Habitat
for Humanity in the
Laurel Road area and
approval of The Bridges
project on Laurel Road as
well as cooperating in
building senior housing
at Grove Terrace. New
density incentives for
affordable housing ap-
pear in the draft compre-
hensive plan.
We look forward to
continuing progress to-
ward saving the Venice
we love. Contact the
Public Information Of-
fice at 486-2626.

or of Venice.

stolen cards, but it could
be a start at ending some
of the rampant fraud.
Possibly Rep. Vern Bu-

will not stop fraud totally
but it is a start.
We have traveled ex-
tensively and take pre-
cautions against theft,
but it can happen in sec-
onds to anyone.
As an individual noth-
ing will be done, but as a
group it could be done.

Sullivan's walk-off hit lifts Venice


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


The kings and

tarpon have arrived

The big news is the size of
some of the king mackerel.
Shane from Venice Bait and
Tackle was a few miles out
the other morning and he
said they couldn't land the
"smokers" that looked to be
about 40-50 pounders. They
did land a few smaller ones
but the big news was the size
of the "smokers." A few
schools of bonita were also
seen.
The other good news is
that the tarpon are starting to
show up in the same waters
and even closer to shore.
Shane is moving his shop
to the other side of Venice
Avenue, just on the south
side of the beginning of the
center bridge.
The pompano are still hit
and miss at the beaches and
the jetty. Marvin, my contact
at the beach, tells me that he
has been seeing fish attack-
ing the bait pods just off the
beach. All and all, the fishing
is very promising for the rest

Lady Indians advance to 5A Final Four


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice's Stephanie Sullivan
did it all for the Lady Indians.
Sullivan's two-out walk-off
RBI single in the bottom of the
seventh lifted Venice to a 1-0
win over Tampa Plant on
Tuesday in the Class 5A-Region
3 final before nearly 400 fans at
Venice High.
The win advances Venice,
last year's Class 5A state run-
ner-up, to the Class 5A Final
Four on May 13 against North
Fort Myers at Plant City
Stadium. North Fort Myers
beat Palm Beach Gardens
Dwyer, 10-1 in their regional
final.
"Just surreal we are going
back (to states)," Venice coach


Larry Sandburg said. "I don't
think anybody in their right
mind thought this could hap-
pen. I guess these kids believed
it. That's all the counts."
In last year's regional final,
Venice beat Plant by the same
score.
Not only did Sullivan get two
of her team's four hits off Plant
pitcher Kayla Suskauer but the
senior right-hander pitched a
one-hitter for her 20th win of
the season.
Suskauer had a two-hitter
with 10 strikeouts until the sev-
enth inning.
With one out in the seventh
inning, Mel Dembinski tripled
down the right-field line into
the corner. Mary Dembinski
walked and Mindee Hasbrouck
lined out to second base.


After her last at bat, Mel
Dembinski was in the batting
cages hitting balls.
"I have to say that is the first
time I've struck out twice in a
game but going out there and
hitting off the tee that just reset
my mind to look for the pitch I
know I can hit," Mel Dembinski
said. "I was thinking just look
for an outside curve and be
patient up to bat and if I get my
pitch I'm going to go with it. I
have to say I got my pitch."
"I don't think she's run that
much in her life," Sandburg
said about Dembinski on the
triple. "With one out you got to
try for third base. Even if you
get thrown out. Chances of
scoring increase percentage-
wise so much."
On a 0-1 pitch, Sullivan sin-

Zack Jordan, formerly of
Venice, won the Green Fleet
and Sophia Schultz sailed to
first place in the Red, White
and Blue Fleet. Both are from
the Sarasota Youth Sailing
Program and each Inter-
national Optimist Dinghy fleet
had 22 sailors.
Sarasota's Benjamin Kalish
placed second to Jordan while
Paul Nolan of the Manatee
River Pram Fleet took third.
Lucas Galarza of the Venice
Youth Boating Association fin-
ished fourth while Carla
Johnson, also of VYBA, cap-
tured fifth.
In the Red, White and Blue
division, Nic Baird of St.
Petersburg was second and
Cara Patete of the VYBA
grabbed third. Manatee River
Pram Fleet's Benjamin Boulch
was fourth while Sylvia Hopkins
of St. Petersburg took fifth.
Tasha Greenwood grabbed
the nine-boat Laser Radial
class. Sarasota YSP's Ian Nora
was second while Christi Frost
took third.

Seth Gosnell was second.
Christopher deLeon took third.
Only two boats competed

ning skipper with Jason
D'Agostino sailing as crew.

"I was just trying to hit the

can do something with it."
"She hit the ball early in the
game so there was a lot of con-
fidence for her to come

"She's been hot lately any-

don't think we thought it," Mel
Dembinski said about going to states.
"But we are playing as a team and play-
ing with the same mentality and same
heart."
"To me it's just another game," said
Sullivan, who has signed to play at
Florida Gulf Coast University. "We did-
n't even think we were going to get this
far so just to get here was a big accom-
plishment.
One of the seniors is Sullivan, who
dominated the Lady Panthers (22-7)
and had a no-hitter for 6 1/3 innings.
Plant's only hit was an infield single
in the hole between third base and
shortstop by Sarah Bowling on a
change-up. Shortstop Mel Dembinski
fielded the ball but Bowling beat the
throw to first base.
"That kills me because I never even
throw the change-up," said Sullivan,
who finished with nine strikeouts.
"That's my waste pitch. Everything
worked very well. We basically went
with the rise ball again."
On the play before, left fielder Kaytea
Hatfield saved the no-hitter on a diving
play in short left field.
"Steph did it all, didn't she?"
Sandburg said. "She played a heck of a
game."'

LET 'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD THE CITY OF VENICE USE COUNTY PRISON INMATES TO DO WORK AROUND THE CITY? CALL 207-1111.


Let condos die a natural death


On the level. City council and residents of the con-
dos on the beach should go down and look at what
the wind and waves have done to Caspersen Beach.
The taxpayers can no longer afford the millions of
dollars to refurbish the beaches, and when a storm
destroys or renders any residence on the water unliv-
able, it should be torn down and the beach allowed to
return to normal. The people should then collect their
insurance and go live elsewhere. FEMA believes this
also, and new policies are coming down that are going
to affect that. So the council should not make rules
different from what common sense makes on beach
structures.


See the lizard. I know
that lots of people do not
know the difference be-
tween an iguana, which I


have never seen in Venice
as long as I've lived here,
and little anoles that you
call a lizard. They eat the


bugs around my house,
and I've seen herons and
egrets eat them in return.
So please, put a pic-
ture of an iguana in the
paper so people don't kill
these little anoles by mis-
take.
Out of the bottle. This
is for the person who
blames the city of Venice
for buying the wine that
they overpurchased. Are
you crazy? I think you
seriously must have
drunk all that darn wine
because you're an idiot.
EDITOR'S NOTE: That call


may have been made
tongue in cheek.
Voice. This is in sup-
port of Mary Kay. Her
column is a voice for the
conservatives and Re-
publicans of this county.
To silence her would be
horrible.
The trouble with liber-
als is that they want to
shut anybody up who
doesn't agree with them,
and your paper would be
much poorer by doing
anything to stop her col-
umn. I would not want to
purchase a paper that
dropped a talented
writer like her.
Play ball. Little League


Baseball is once more in
full swing. This should be
a great experience for all
involved, not only the
ones directly involved in
playing the game, but
also those family mem-
bers who support it from
the sidelines. It should
truly be a family affair.
Everyone must re-
member that a commit-
ment has been made to
protect their team and
their teammates. Playing
on a team is not only
important from the phys-
ical exercise prospective,
but also from the educa-
tional part of life.
Yes, playing sports is


educational.
Playing sports will
develop positive habits
that will become a part of
life for those involved. In
all fairness of those
around you in this great
adventure, being on time
for practice and games
and taking care of equip-
ment is important for all
concerned. You as par-
ents have a responsibility
to show your young stu-
dent athletes that you
support them in this
great endeavor and ad-
venture in every way
possible. Now, let's play
ball and have a great sea-
son.

STUDENTS AND EDUCATOR OF THE MONTH 8B COMMUNITY HONORS SCHUMACHER 12B

11^4 IA ^C '.^f %KJ


Some 863 objets d'art created by students in South County public schools are being displayed through
May 14 at the Venice Art Center.
"These are the artists of the next generation, and it is just amazing to see the quality of the work," VAC
Board President Tanya Sauppe said. "We are lucky to have such talented teachers that can bring the best
out of the students."
Art teachers in each school selected up to 45 works per school for ele-
mentary and middle schools and as many as 20 works per teacher in the -------
high schools. The same teachers met at the center for nearly three days to
hang the works. High school artwork had to be hung prior to adjudication, I
which took place April 27.
While this annual exhibition showcases student art and the Sarasota
County Schools art departments, the show also offers cash and scholarship '..
award opportunities for the high school art students whose work is on dis- -
play.
Cash and other awards are funded by the Elizabeth M. Campbell and ...
Edmund B. Campbell Foundation at the art center. The top prize is $1,500 -a:
for the best overall senior work in the show. It was won by Amberose
Courville, a Venice High School senior, who plans to attend Florida Gulf v
Coast University in Fort Myers. She also won first place for a non-graphite ] -
drawing and second place in printmaking and non-graphite drawing. Her |
younger sister, Juliena, aVHS sophomore, won third place for painting and
first for a special award in graphite. They study with Craig Seidell at VHS. ',
$1,000 was won by Venice High School student Anna Steele for the best
of show award. There are two $500 awards. Halle McGraw won for best
portfolio and Marina Donata of VHS won the creativity award.,
$100 awards were presented in 11 categories: graphite drawing or draw-
ing pencil (Grace Betts of VHS); non-graphite drawing (Kristin LeMar of
North Port High School); sculpture (Joey Richard and Cameron Horn of i
NPHS); photography (Ariel Menendez of NPHS); ceramic and pottery
(Jordon Coleman of NPHS); mixed media and collage (Ciera Myslinkski
and Amanda Starnes of NPHS); printmaking (Rose McGee of VHS); graphic. _.---'-- .
arts (digital) (Emily Bolan of VHS); painting, oil or acrylic (Nichole
Timoney of VHS); painting in watercolor or tempera (Malaka .......
Friedman ofVHS); and crafts, including jewelry, weaving, batik and .....
copper tooling (Emma Mcllwain ofVHS).
Ribbons were awarded in those 11 categories for first, second,
third and honorable mention..,,.
The Don Carmichael Award of $100 was given to Abby Anderson
ofVHS for the best watercolor in the show.

VAHS pioneer documentary almost complete


FROM VENICE AREA
HISTORICAL SOCIETY


A videotaped documentary
of interviews with the descen-
dants of pioneer families from
the Venice area will be released
at the end of the month.
The first public viewing of
the documentary will be held
May 26 at 7 p.m. during a
Venice Area Historical Society


meeting at Village On The Isle,
Mark Manor, 930 South Tami-
ami Trail.
According to Judie Bauer,
VAHS publicity chair, this will
be the organization's last meet-
ing of the season, and this is a
"very important program be-
cause lots of hard work was put
into this pioneer program
throughout the season by lots
of dedicated volunteers."


Early in the season, the his-
torical society partnered with
Venice Middle School teacher
Barbara Woody and her sev-
enth-grade social studies class
to produce a one-hour video
composed of interviews of
descendants of pioneer fami-
lies from the Venice Area.
Those families include the
Knights, Wredes, Webbs, Black-
bums, Currys, Hams, Stephens


and Higels.
Mentors from VAHS worked
throughout the school year
with the students, providing
information and help at the
Venice Archives, and by pro-
viding the family members to
be interviewed. VAHS mentors
were Brian Heverin, Mary
Huba, Betty Intagliata, Barbara
Smith and Joan Watson.
The VMS students are invit-


ed to introduce the one-hour
video, and all those inter-
viewed are invited to attend.
Grants written by Intagliata
and Woody provided back-
ground and equipment for the
project. Others involved with
pioneer programs were Dotty
Fuhmeister and Judie Bauer.
For more information, call
Intagliata, past president of
VAHS, at 484-0769.

, ~Scoliosis
*K is a lateral and
rotational curvature in
L the mid- to low-back
regions of the spine that
may begin in infancy, the
juvenile years, or during
adolescence. If allowed to
progress, scoliosis can cause the
ribs to crowd together on one
side while ribs on the opposite
side separate widely. The
curvature may force the spaces
between the spinal discs to narrow
and the vertebrae to thicken along
the outer edges of the curve. In a
minority of cases, the cause can be
traced to habitually poor posture or
leg-length discrepancy; however,
most cases are considered to be
genetic in origin. Regardless, the
chiropractor offers a far more
comprehensive assessment of
youngsters' spine health than
schools usually provide.

P.S. For more severe forms of
scoliosis, surgical correction may
be necessary.

BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


For some, the first day of May repre-
sents a time to celebrate the coming of
spring, perhaps with Maypole dancing
when schoolchildren perform a folk
dance grabbing onto long, colorful rib-
bons streaming from the pole.
But for 18 juniors at Venice High
School, the day brought recognition of
the extra effort they had put into their
studies, character building and com-
munity service. These students were
honored at the annual book awards
event held at the school's media center.
Students and their awards were:
Natalia Medrzycki, Anne Frank Hu-
manitarian Award; Girls State: Patience
Patrick, Hannah Greenwald, Jillian
Allen and Morgan Hutchinson; Boys
State: Joseph lorio, Robert Carter Nic-
holas, Riley Revels, Travis Walton and
David Williams III; Furman Scholars,
Ashley Drury and Riley Revels; Book
Awards: Mount Holyoke College,


Caroline (Tori) Miller; Rutgers Univer-
sity, Ashley Drury; Wellesley College,
Jessica Lambrecht; Cornell University,
Malaka Friedman; Smith College, Rose
McGee; Yale University, Nirav Patel;
Harvard University, Taylor Capasso;
and Dartmouth College, Chelsea Zgra-
bik.
Principal Candace Millington wel-
comed the students and their families
and said the event was a chance for the
school to "recognize our most out-
standing juniors" while giving them the
"opportunity to learn about Ivy League
schools and what is available for stu-
dents."
Ron DiPillo, assistant principal, at-
tended.
LaShawn Houston, guidance ad-
ministrator, said she welcomed the
opportunity to recognize the students'
accomplishments and encouraged
them to follow the motto "BAM: be-
lieve, achieve and maximize your

Additional funding for the art show
was provided by the Education Foun-

tificates, art show coordinators, invita-
tions and other miscellaneous items.
High school senior art students also
had the opportunity to compete for
$1,000 scholarships to Manatee Com-


munity College or $5,000 scholarships
to the Ringling College of Art and De-
sign. Each school offered two awards.
To enter, the students had to submit
CDs containing 10 to 12 samples of
their work, a letter of intent and tran-
script. Those scholarships will be
awarded at a later date. They will be
decided based on merit rather than
school location.
Awards were presented during spe-
cial receptions for parents and stu-
dents. Students in the middle and high
schools were honored April 29, and ele-
mentary students were honored on
April 30 at the VAC.
Work will remain on display through
May 14. The VAC is at 390 S. Nokomis
Ave., on the island in downtown Venice.
The center is open daily from 9 a.m. to

dinners for the symphony musicians that helped instill in
them a sense of family, said Wesley John Schumacher,

Concertmaster Richard
Adams, left, and his wife,
Grace, congratulate
Wesley John Schumacher
at his retirement party
April 19. Schumacher was
conductor of the Venice
Symphony for 20 years.


MARTY DOVER
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

There were tears, smiles
and hugs at the retirement
party April 19 for Wesley
John Schumacher, who was
conductor of the Venice
Symphony for 20 years.
"He is the heart of the
symphony," said Executive
Director Jean Peters.
Members of the board of
directors, musicians, patrons


and friends gathered at Jaca-
randa Trace to celebrate
Schumacher's 20 years of
leadership and friendship,
browsing through scrap-
books and photos of the
maestro's life, lining up to
thank him and give him a
hug.
In his brief remarks,
Schumacher said of the sym-
phony, "We're a team, and
I've just been a part of the
team. Now I'm seeing the
symphony from your per-
spective." He closed with,
"Thank you, thank you,
thank you." No, maestro, WE
thankYOU.
Sooey pig. Pig.
The Venice Sertoma Club
roared into its fireworks
fundraising season by roast-
ing a 100-pound pig at its
annual Pig-Nic April 18 on
the shore of the Myakka


River.
The succulent porker,
tended all day by head
cooks Sonny Smith and
Oscar Ribas, was accompa-
nied by the usual side dish-
es, with live music, dancing,
a tippy canoe and a special
treat s'mores.
Proceeds from the event
start the club's efforts to
raise the $10,000 it commits
each year to the Venice July
Fourth fireworks fund, with
the city paying the remain-
ing $15,000 cost. From the
third week of May until July
you will see Sertoma volun-
teers around town soliciting
donations for the fund by
selling something patriotic,
such as flashing flag pins. A
small donation from each
of us is all it takes to have
one of the best fireworks
displays in the area, so
please be generous.


The sound masters at many Venice musical venues are
Nick Ferlicchi, left, and Danny Swain of Troll Music Inc.,
named after their original location practically under the
Venice Avenue Bridge where it began 20 years ago this
April Fools' Day. "They said it would never happen," said
Swain, "but we made it work."


The unofficial band of the Venice
Sertoma Club, the Cryin' Shames
start off the music Saturday
morning at the Sharks Tooth
Festival. They are, from left, Andy
Richardson, lead; Bob Klingbeil,
bass; Gary Wilson, drums; Don
Hay, vocal; Marie Wilson, key-
board; and Jim Clinch, vocals
and comedian. They've kept their
day jobs.

Kim
Cool
Let's Go!
Features Editor
kcool@venkegondolier.com


Hot off the press
Of the new books that
cross my desk in a given
week, those by Sarasota's
resident historian Jeff Lahurd
are my favorites.
Lahurd's newest book is
"Hidden History of Sarasota,"
published by the History Press.
As a transplanted West Coast
Floridian from the North Coast
(Cleveland), I have developed a
voracious appetite for Florida
history, especially the history
of the Cultural Coast.
Working by day at the
Sarasota County History
Center, Lahurd goes home to
immerse himself in still more
history. To date he has written
10 books relating to Sarasota
history, many magazine and
newspaper articles and a
video, "Sarasota, Landmarks of
the Past," which won an award
from the Florida Trust for
Historic Preservation.
Sprinkled with photos from
the archives, Lahurd's books
give us a look at Sarasota's past
and the people who guided
and influenced the city along
the road to the present. He
covered the city's love affair
with baseball in "Spring
training in Sarasota, Florida,
1924-1960," published in 2006
and Marie Selby Botanical
Gardens in "A Passion for
Plants," which hit the book-
stores in 2001. Published in
1992, making it nearly a classic
is "The Lido Casino."
Historic photos showcase the
changes in Sarasota over the
years. The John Ringling
Towers, the famed Lido Casino
and so many other landmarks
are gone, forever changing
Sarasota's skyline and to some
extent, its character.
What's that old George
Santayana quote? "Those who
cannot learn from history are
doomed to repeat it."
Check local bookstores or
amazon.com for Lahurds
books.

SteveFest: A voice for Florida folk music


Let's Go! Page 3


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
SteveFest will once
again bring Florida folk
traditions and voices to
Charlotte County.
The Second Annual
SteveFest is scheduled 2
p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday
at the Bayshore Park
amphitheatre, 22967
Bayshore Road, Char-
lotte Harbor. As it did
last year, Stevefest
coincides with Charlotte
County Historical
Center and Museum
Society Inc. 13th Annual
Florida Frontier Days
celebration. Tickets are
$10 at the gate or $7
with a Frontier Days'
wristband. Food and
refreshments are avail-
able, and coolers will be
allowed.
This year's entertain-
ment features Still
Friends, Mindy Sim-
mons and Doug Spears.
Other performances will
include The Roadside
River Revue, Mike
Jurgensen, Joshua Creek,
Mike's Hibiscus Band,
The Punta Gorda Guitar
Army & Neobeatnik
Revolutionary Ensem-
ble.
SteveFest commemo-
rates and celebrates
contemporary folk
artists, the artistry and
memory of Steve
Blackwell.
Blackwell was a
Charlotte High School
teacher and media
specialist who died in
September 2006, at the
age of 58, after a year-
long battle with
melanoma cancer.
Besides being an
educator, Blackwell
built a career as a
Florida folk musician
with his band, Steve


Blackwell & Friends.
Although he was born
and raised in Indiana,
Blackwell's art is as
deeply rooted in Florida
as mangroves. His music
was rich with Florida
history, its environment,
its human rights heroes
- like Stetson Kennedy,
and others he saw as
heroes.
His band released
three CDs: More Than It
Seems, The Difference
You Make and And So It
Grows. The group played
at all of the major folk
festivals in Florida.
SteveFest itself is
organized by Blackwell's
family and friends to
carry on his love of
Florida heritage and
music.
His widow, Margie
"Sue" Blackwell, said
Steve Blackwell believed
people, especially
transplants, could
learn, appreciate and
understand Florida's
history and environ-
ment.
"He believed you can
make history alive in a
song," she said.
SteveFest organizers
also reflect his role as
an educator. A portion
of the proceeds go to
scholarships and
support for melanoma
research.
Blackwell will also be
honored locally with a
plaque 7 p.m. Thursday
at the gazebo in Punta
Gorda's Gilchrist Park.
He had been a founding
member of the Punta
Gorda Guitar Army, a
loose-knit group of
local musicians who
gather regularly Thurs-
day evening and play at
the park.


Featured performers
After his Blackwell's
death, former band
members Dan Leach
and his son, Andy;
Blackwell's daughter and
son, Carrie Hussey and
Japhy Blackwell, with
Tiffiny Coffey formed
Still Friends and have
been building on
Blackwell's music,
evolving their own
sound and performing
new original songs.
Still Friends members
hope to debut their first
CD, Rise Up, at the
SteveFest
Born and based now
in Sarasota, Simmons
has performed and
toured nationwide for
more than 25 years. Her
Web site, www.mindysim-
mons.com, describes her
voice as ranging from
"silky smooth (jazz) to
gutsy blues" renditions.
Simmons released six
CDs since 1998,
described as a mixture
of original and cover
tunes, and one CD is a
tribute album to Peggy
Lee. Simmons also
writes and performs
spiritual songs.
"I am honored to be
asked to perform (at
SteveFest) celebrating a
very special man,"
Simmons said. Besides
her performance, she
will participate in a
songwriting workshop.
Simmons also plans to
enjoy Frontier Days

Venice Theatre presents 'The Outsiders'


May 6-7, 2009


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The latest offering in
Venice Theatre's list of
Generations' productions
is "The Outsiders," a
coming of age play based
on a book that so enraged
various types of readers,
that, if books would be
banned, this one would
make the list and did
and will continue to do so
as long as there are people
to be offended by one
thing or another.
Coming of age is


difficult enough for most
humans. Doing it within a
setting that involves
people from both the
wrong and right side of
town makes it all the more
complicated. There are
people on both sides of
town who come equipped
with various prejudices,
carefully taught by peers
and/or parents. Can
members of these differ-
ent groups ever learn to
get along?
That is the premise of
the S. E, Hinton book on

Mom deserves a stay at the Gaylord Palms Resort


May 6-7, 2009


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
For Mother's Day, Mom
deserves a stay at the
Gaylord Palms Resort and
Convention Center in
Kissimmee.
May 8-11, subject to
availability, the resort has
a special deal for Mom -
a "Mothers of the Year"
resort package that
includes a special Sunday
morning ceremony.
Rooms and suites are so
luxe she may just want to
snuggle into her room,
play on the provided
computer or simply
people watch from the
balcony that, from most
rooms, overlooks an
exquisite glass-enclosed
4.5-acre atrium.
Personal greetings from
the manager welcome
guests by name from the
in-room computer
screen. There, besides
surfing the internet or
writing the Great America
novel, Mom can make
reservations at any of the
resorts' many restaurants,
order room service or
book time at the Canyon
Ranch Spa, which has its
own brand of oils, lotions
and treatments. Like the


original Tuscon Resort's
spa, the Gaylord's Spa-
Club branch has, for
eight years, been a total
destination spa, with all
the amenities a person
could want even one
so deserving as Mom.
The Gaylord's Mobil
four-star Canyon Ranch
SpaClub has 25 treatment
rooms within its 20,000-
square-foot space on the
lower level of the resort.
You start to unwind as
you stroll from your room
and along the winding
paths of the atrium to the
spa. Once there you will
be warmly greeted and
taken to the locker room
where you can change
into robe and slippers
before your treatments
begin. Facials, masks,
body scrubs and more
are some of the treat-
ments offered in addition
to the usual and unusual
massages and body
work. Inhaling the
aromas of the oils and
creams and herbs is
therapy in itself.
For the ultimate
treatment, try the 100-
minute Canyan Ranch
signature service. The 80-
minute Canyon Stone

Massage is another
specialty. Heated stones
are used to both warm
and massage the entire
body.
The spa also has a
complete salon where
you can get haircuts,
perms, pedicures and
manicures and the like.
If you really want to
work out, the fitness
facility has most every
machine and piece of
exercise equipment
desired plus instructors.
There are saunas and
steam rooms for him and
for her plus yoga and tai
chi classes for guests.
After sampling the spa
menu it is a good idea to
rest a bit before sam-
pling any of the other
extensive menus at the
resort. There are five
restaurants on site.

And there is always
room service on what
must be the world's
largest trays. At least that
is what arrived in my
room on a recent visit.
As most of the rooms
have balconies and
views of the atrium,
dining in the room is
extra special. That is
where one has the best
view of Sunset Sam's, the

That in-room computer
is terrific and all you need

check e-mail. It also has a
treasure trove of applica-
tions so you can check
convention schedules,
resort and other maps
and even visit virtual
trade shows. Use your
Wi-fi or Airport-equipped
laptop anywhere on the
grounds.
The resort is perfectly
situated for enjoying any


of the many theme parks
in the area. Walt Disney

To the north is SeaWorld

which includes the
Mothers of the Year
program, is $159 plus tax.
The offer is not valid for
groups or in combination
with other deals or
existing reservations.

First winners of Greenfield Prize announced


PROVIDED BY THE
HERMITAGE ARTIST RETREAT
Playwright Craig Lucas
and composer Eve Beglari-
an were named the first
recipients of the newly
established Greenfield Prize
from the Hermitage Artist
Retreat on Manasota Key.
"We're delighted to have
two of America's most
outstanding artistic
creators be the first
recipients of the Greenfield
Prize," Bruce Rodgers said.
"The intent of the prize is
to have a significant
impact on the broad, as
well as the artistic culture
of our society. We couldn't
be more pleased with our
first selections and are
certain these exciting
artists will be able to create
works that will do just that.
Additionally, the prize
helps us to bring artists of
remarkable international
stature to Sarasota and
during their time here,
they will share their
creative talents with our
local community. Every-
body wins."
The Greenfield Prize was
established by longtime
Sarasota residents Bob and
Louise Greenfield through
the Philadelphia-based
Greenfield Foundation.
The prize will be the
means by which a ground-
breaking, enduring work of
art will be created each
year at the Hermitage
Artist Retreat. The Prize
consists of a $30,000
commission of an original
work of art, a six-week
residency at the Her-
mitage, and a partnership
with a professional arts
organization, which may
present the premiere of
that work. A reading of
Lucas' play is planned to
be performed in 2010 by
the Asolo Repertory
Theatre and Beglarian's
musical composition will


be premiered in Sarasota
in 2011 by the Sarasota
Orchestra.
A distinguished five-
person panel consisting of
some of the most highly
respected theatre and
music authorities in
America selected each
Greenfield Prize recipient.
Three voting members on
each committee were
joined by Asolo Rep
Producing Artistic Director
Michael Donald Edwards
in drama and Sarasota
Orchestra Artistic Director
Leif Bjaland in music. Joni
Greenfield represented the
Greenfield Foundation on
both committees. Her-
mitage Executive Director
Bruce Rodgers facilitated.
"It is our hope to make
the Greenfield Prize a mark
of the highest creative
achievement," Rodgers
SAID. "By calling on some
of the most respected
names in each artistic
discipline, we feel confi-
dent that we will be able to
reach this ambitious goal."

Love blooms in new work at Florida Rep


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The current offering of
the Florida Repertory
Company, "The Last
Romance" has all the
ingredients of a play on
the verge of becoming
a classic.
Broadway bound, this
Southeastern U.S. premier
of the Joe DiPietro play
has an outstanding cast to
portray a charming love
story complicated by
things both said and
unsaid. Operatic themes
run in and out and about
the play both in the set
design, story line and even
in the production itself,
which features Florida Rep
Associate Director Jason
Parrish as The Young
Man. Acting somewhat
like a one-man Greek
chorus, The Young Man
sang a variety of opera
and other pieces
throughout the show,
while also walking on to
assist Ralph in donning
his tie and coat or
performing some other
task useful for advancing
this sweet, yet sometimes
tart or even sour story of
Ralph (David Howard)
and Carol (Saras Morsey)


and Ralph's sister Rose
(Carrie Lund).
Ralph Bellini is an
80-year old widower who
once aspired to be an
opera singer. notices Carol
Reynolds walking her little
dog, Peaches. Enamored
with Carol but not neces-
sarily with the dog that
looks like a rat, Ralph
spends time on a park
bench at the local dog
park. He does not have a
dog. He wears his best
shirt and endeavors to
strike up a conversation
with the lovely lady (Carol)
when she finally appears.
"This part is closer to the
real me than anything I
have played," Howard said
after last Tuesday's
performance.
Howard, a master of
characterization, is Ralph,
possibly even more than
he was Yogi Berra in
"Nobody Don't Like Yogi"
or Morrie Schwartz in
"Tuesdays with Morrie," in
past seasons of the Asolo
Repertory Company.
Over several days, Ralph
manages to make inroads
in the potential relation-
ship despite several
differences in their
backgrounds and situa-

tions and a plethora of
negative comments by
Ralph's sister Rose Tagli-
atelle. Lund's portrayal of
Rose seems to have been
strongly inspired by the
Vicky Lawrence portrayal
of Mama in the old Carol
Burnette show. Separated
but not divorced for the
past 22 years, Rose seems
more curmudgeon than
loving sister. Far younger
than her 77-year-old
character, Rose, Lund
walks the walk and talks
the talk of a miserable old
woman betrayed for no
good reason (in her eyes).
Despite Rose's ratings,
Ralph continues to pursue
Carol, obviously hoping to
have a second relationship
as wonderful as he had

with his late wife. Carol, a
grandmother, also seem-
ingly alone, eventually
welcomes the friendship
and even tries to
befriend Rose.
She also agrees to go to
an opera with Ralph who
once tried out for the Met
but never made a career
there because (he thinks)
one of his brothers failed
to give him the message
when the opera gave him a
call-back after his audition
so many years ago.
As the bitter and the
weet pepper this story, so
do they affect the ending.
Directed by Robert
Cacioppo, this is a play to

Lupita's offers a charming taste of Mexico


T upita's features a full,
I authentic Mexican
.Lemnu in an unassum-
ing locale with two large
dining rooms. Yellow walls
are painted with potted
flowers and hanging plants
and fans adorn the
ceilings, but most of the
Mexican ambiance comes
from the background
Mexican music, the
warmth of the welcome,
the generosity of the
portions, and the freshness
of the ingredients.
A basket filled with
warm house-made tortilla
chips and a molcajete
(mortar bowl) of tomato
salsa are brought to the
table with the drinks. Even
a single diner at the next
table was offered more
chips and salsa at no
additional charge.
Lunch is served from
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and has
10 possibilities including
several kinds of burritos,
tacos, quesadillas, and a
chimichanga ranging in
price from $4.95-$7.95 and

including sides of rice and

steak burrito, Burrito de
Carne Asada ($6.95), and
he had a combination
platter of a Chicken Sope
and Huarache ($9.95).
The burrito was stuffed
with beans, cubes of beef
roast, lettuce, peppers, and
cheese, all mildly seasoned
as she prefers. His round
sope and oval huarache
turned out to be very
similar. Both had a base
of masa (thick corn dough)
shaped and fried to hold
the several ingredients
topping them: refried
beans, chicken, lettuce,
tomatoes and grated
cheese over all. Although
the cheese was not the

combination was
delicious.
He was delighted that
the kitchen was able to
quickly provide a salsa
verde, a chunky green
tomatillo-based chili sauce
that added to his enjoy-
ment of the dish. The side
of yellow rice that came on
each dish was firm and
tasty, and the frijoles
refritos (refried beans)
were pleasantly evocative
of that Mexican staple. The
side of Platanos Maduros
(ripe plantains, $3) was
crisply fried and more than
enough for the two of us to
share even though we both
love them.
The menu is varied
enough to give lovers of
real Mexican food and
even Tex-Mex fans the


opportunity to put
together their personal
favorite meal. The appetiz-
ers include nachos,
quesadillas, and chichar-
rones (pork rinds). There is
an assortment of sand-
wiches and salads for the
gringos as well. Dinners
include all one would
expect: fajitas, enchiladas,
stuffed poblano peppers,
as well as some rather
unexpected items like a
seafood platter and
BBQ ribs.
On the weekends, the
specials are designed to
appeal even more to the
immigrant Mexican
population with Menudo
(a tripe and hominy stew),
Birria de chivo (a goat
stew), and soups (caldos)
of shrimp and seafood.
