Improvement plan in
store for city.

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The Federal Aviation Admin-
istration has placed Venice
Municipal Airport on a list of
troubled airports.
FAA auditors will conduct a
"land use compliance inspec-
tion" at the airport May 20-21.
The purpose is to ensure
the city is in compliance with
requirements of its federal air-
port obligations, like getting
fair market value from its leas-
es.
The FAA said resident com-
plaints sparked the audit.
"Due to numerous public
inquiries regarding the airport,
the FAA selected Venice Mu-
nicipal Airport as one of the
locations to be inspected,"
wrote FAA Airports Program
Manager William Garrison in a
May 4 letter to Mayor Ed
Martin.
The data collected by these
inspections, wrote Garrison, is
included in an annual airport
improvement program report
to Congress.
"This report lists airports
that are not in compliance
with grant assurances or other
requirements with respect to
airport lands," Garrison wrote.
Delayed reaction
Tuesday's public "vision-
ing" session for Venice Mu-
nicipal Airport may have been
more subdued due to the
news. The workshop was more
notable for the words that
weren't uttered than what was
spoken.
Gone was the animosity,
the allegations of wrongdoing
and calls for investigations
over myriad issues that has
divided the community.
While there weren't offers of
compromise, what came out
of it was something city coun-
cil and DY Consultants, the
city's airport consultant, can
build on a call for an end to
what one spectator called "air-
port wars."
DY was seeking input into
creating a vision for the air-
port. The workshop attracted
the same advocates and
detractors that have showed
up over the past two years.
They made the same argu-
ments for and against various

Venice Jet Center receiver gives city warning


City actions may violate federal
anti-trust laws.

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city ofVenice could face a new legal
challenge. This time from the receivership
of the Venice Jet Center.
Burton Wiand, a federally appointed
receiver, is charged with selling off the
assets of Art Nadel who is in jail on charges
of investment fraud. TheVenice Jet Center,
owned by Nadel, is prime real estate that
Wiand says needs to be protected to reim-
burse investors.
He sent a letter to the city on May 4
charging it with "impeding the Venice Jet
Center's continuing development and
hurting its value" by not approving the
construction of four proposed hangars.
"It is my conclusion that (council's)
actions are in violation of federal law
administered by the FAA," Wiand wrote.
"It is also my conclusion that these
(actions) are an intentional interference
with an asset of the receivership that is


Prohibited by the order of
the United States District
Court in Tampa."
In light of the city's
announced "intent to
participate in the sales
process" of the jet center
and to "purchase the
property for pennies" -
Simmonds and its plan to develop its
own hangars in competi-
tion with the jet center -
the city's actions "may
constitute violation of
the federal anti-trust
Slaws," Wiand said.
He again requested the
city authorize the con-




time not to issue a building permit.
Wiand's threat of legal action, the sec-
ond he put into writing, put a crimp in the
city's efforts to purchase the jet center.
City Manager Isaac Turner put on hold


Commissioners: North Port,

development plan a good fit


Two North Port city
commissioners say that
the new Economic
Development Corp.
strategic plan works well
with the city's plans.


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

The recommendations
made Tuesday to the Sarasota
County Commission by the
Sarasota County Economic
Development Corp. in its five-
year strategic plan were wel-
comed by North Port City
Commissioners Tom Jones


and Michael Treubert.
"Today is a good framework
because it fits so well with
things we're already doing in
North Port," Jones said.
One key point presented by
Patricia Scruggs (whose com-
pany, Scruggs & Associates
LLC of North Carolina, assisted
in updating the plan) is the
need for an enterprise pro-
gram of $400,000 to $500,000
to help start new business in
the county. Scruggs told com-
missioners that each new pro-
ject would need from $100,000
to $150,000 to "incubate."
In April, North Port com-
missioners approved the cre-
ation of a revolving business

plans to hire an appraiser
to place a value on the jet
center.
The appraiser, Turner
said, "recommended not
doing the appraisal out
of fear it might be used
against the city should
some sort of legal action
come."
"We owe the appraiser
a vote of thanks," said
Council Member John
Simmonds on Tuesday.
"We need to start think-
ing like a receiver. The
more we mess with the
airport, the more oppor-
tunity we invite him to
say we interfered with it
and say we lost a cus-
tomer who was willing to
pay $2 million more for


"Guess who (he) is coming after for the
difference? The city ofVenice."

County

address

changes

BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER
An ordinance that would
mandate address changes to
many residential and com-
mercial sites in unincorporat-
ed areas of Sarasota County
will be presented to county
commissioners Wednesday.
Address changes could in-
clude number changes or, in
some instances, a new street
name, to help first responders
react to 9-1-1 calls. Re-ad-
dressing would begin in 18
months at the earliest and take
about 10 years to complete.
There are currently 2,100
duplicate street names in the
county.
The ordinance, which will
be presented by Fire Marshal
Jane E. Ross of Sarasota Coun-
ty Emergency Services, also
could affect North Port, Venice
and Sarasota, if those munici-
palities adopt its provisions.
In her presentation, Ross
will seek authorization from

Florida ranks high


- in beach trash


BY GERALD A.
ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Florida ranks third in
the country for the
trashiest beaches.
We promote our
sandy beaches and warm
weather to attract
tourists. But when they
step onto a beach, the
prospect is clouded by
cigarette butts, bottles,
pull tabs, syringes, con-
doms, dead animals and
a whole lot more.
An organization called
Ocean Conservancy has
been measuring the
cleanliness of beaches in
the United States and
several other countries
since 1985. It does so with
a coastal clean-up, which
in 2008 was its biggest.
Judging by what its vol-
unteers found and picked
up, American beachgoers
smoke, drink and eat a lot


at the beach. Burned-out
and broken cigarette
butts were the most com-
mon coastal litter last
year. The Conservancy
picked up 3,216,991 in
104 counties and 42 states
in which clean-ups took
place. Florida's total was
197,389.
If you count cigars,
wrappers and lighters,
smokers alone account
for 31 percent of beach
debris.
Evidence from the
Conservancy's "marine
debris index" suggested
that people do a lot more
than swim and sunbathe
at the beach in Florida.
Add car repair and target
practice.
More than 800 tires,
1,100 auto parts and
1,100 shotgun shells were
picked up in the state's
2008 cleanup.
In the Ugh! category,

County honored for stimulus initiative


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY


Sarasota County has received the
Thomas H. Muehlenbeck Award for
excellence in local government. The
recognition is based on the county's
economic stimulus initiative and is pre-
sented by the Alliance for Innovation.
The Alliance for Innovation is a net-
work of local government professionals
seeking innovation and governmental
excellence. It was created from a partner-
ship between International City/County
Management Association, Arizona State
University School of Public Affairs and
the Innovation Groups.
The award will be presented to the
county May 14 at the Transforming
Local Government conference in
Corpus Christi, Texas.
According to the alliance announce-
ment, "Well over a year ago, the commu-
nity and the board of county commis-
sioners recognized the potential to
increase a local economic stimulus
through an accelerated capital improve-
ments program and the need to diversi-
fy the economy.
"Beginning in January 2008, the
county detailed an economic stimulus


program, received public support, and
began aggressively creating jobs and
business activity. The Sarasota commu-
nity, through its own resolve and capa-
bilities, moved to independently build
an economic stimulus platform for the
benefit of its citizens.
'At the time, no federal or state eco-
nomic stimulus funds were available to
accelerate capital construction projects.
Because Sarasota County has already
organized a multi-pronged strategy for
economic stimulus, community infra-
structure is being built, and the oppor-
tunity to benefit from a federal stimulus
package is maximized."
Countyvoters last May approved plans
by the Sarasota County Commission to
borrow up to $300 million to fast-track
dozens of projects over 72 months. The
initiative is expected to create more than
2,000 jobs and help the local economy.
No new taxes are involved for the
projects. They are already funded by
the 1-cent sales surtax, which voters
approved in 2007. About $190 million
in projects are being fast-tracked.
About $100 million worth of construc-
tion can begin within 12 months.

Teachers union, school district reach deal


FROM THE SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT

In a collaborative effort to help dis-
trict staff members know their status
before the end of the school year,
Sarasota County schools administra-
tors and representatives of the Sarasota
Classified/Teachers Association have
reached an early conclusion to negotia-
tions for the 2009-2010 contract year.
The new contract is subject to
school board approval and ratification
by the SCTA membership.
Superintendent Lori White said the
early agreement is consistent with the
district's commitment to conclude the
budgeting process as soon as possible
so staff members who are affected by
reductions will know their employment
status by the end of May. In order to
meet that time line, the district started
its budget discussions in November,
putting it far ahead of most other dis-


tricts in Florida in its bud-
geting process.
Staffing decisions are
S in progress. Instructional
staff members are expect-
ed to know their status
this week and classified
staff assignments are to
White be completed by the end
of the month.
One key provision of the agreement
is a significant reduction in the number
of supplemental contracts available for
athletic coaches, academic team lead-
ers and department chairs. That
change is expected to reduce costs by
about $800,000.
Another major agreement was
reached in the reduction of planning
time for middle-school teachers. That
change will save the district about $1
million and still maintain the team
concept that is central to instructional
delivery in middle schools.


The budget will not
allow an across-the-
board raise for staff. The
district will, however,
honor its contractual
commitment to give so-
called "step" increases to
employees who are eligi-
Gardner ble because of an addi-
tional year of service.
About half of the district staff will
receive a step increase of about 1.5 per-
cent. Staff members who are at the top
of their salary range will receive no step
increase.
SCTA President Pat Gardner said the
agreement represents a good-faith
effort by district staff to minimize the
impact of the economic slowdown on
students.
"Teachers and staff are prepared to
make whatever adjustments are
required in their assignments and work
loads to ensure that students continue


to have a stable environment at school
and reach their highest academic
potential," Gardner said.
White said she was proud of and
grateful for the high degree of profes-
sionalism demonstrated on both sides
of the bargaining table.
"The willingness of all of us who
are dedicated to the welfare of our
students to collaborate for their ben-
efit in even the most personally trying
times assures me that the district will
emerge from this budget crisis as a
more cohesive and successful team,"
she said.
White also reiterated her commit-
ment to ensuring that as many unas-
signed staff members as possible are
placed in vacancies that will occur over
the summer and into the 2009-10
school year. She said she is confident
that the majority of unassigned staff
will be placed by the end of the first
semester.

No new swine flu in county


STAFF REPORT

No new cases of swine flu were
reported over the weekend in Sarasota
County, according to Dianne Shipley of
the county health department.
Two confirmed cases of H1N1, the
government name for swine flu, were
announced Friday by the state health
department. Early announcements by
the health department incorrectly stated
the virus was contracted by two broth-
ers, Shipley said. The older of the two
siblings is a 10-year-old female, she said.
County epidemiologist Scott Pritch-
ard said Friday that by the time the older
child's case was confirmed, she already
had been treated by a physician and
returned to Tuttle Elementary School in
Sarasota. Pritchard said the boy is expe-
riencing a normal course of the virus.
Neither sibling was hospitalized.
According to a Department of


Health press release, officials have con-
firmed 56 cases of swine flu in Florida,
the latest in a 51-year-old woman in
Flagler County.
There are also probable swine flu
cases in Palm Beach (one) and Okaloosa
(two) counties.
Last week, state labs received testing
supplies from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, allowing health
officials to confirm cases of the virus
faster.
Dr. William Heymann, Sarasota
County medical executive director, said
55 cases of Tamiflu from the nation's
stockpile had been sent to the county
for distribution.
The state health department said
Monday the CDC no longer recom-
mends closures or dismissals at nurs-
ery or public schools where there are
confirmed cases of flu.

Self-taxing. I'm calling about the Venice Tea Party
and all others protesting taxes in Sarasota County or
elsewhere. The fact is I don't know why these people
are mad; they should be mad at themselves starting
with the school surtax, which was approved by the
voters when they had an opportunity to say no to
more local taxes. Again, in 2006 in Sarasota County,
they voted again to renew those local taxes. The same
taxpayers voted again to approve the county 1-cent
sales surtax. Some people in Venice also voted for the
city bond that we're still paying for. So, they should
look in the mirror instead of complaining to the politi-
cians. When they have an opportunity to vote, why do
they keep voting for more or longer taxes right here in
Sarasota County?


Deaf or blind? My sis-
ter and her husband
retired here on Venice
island in 1975. My wife
and I visited them quite a
few times after that. We
knew there was an air-
port here and saw it be-
cause often we'd go to the
restaurant that was and
still is at the airport.
Many people obviously
did the same thing and
got to see the airport. We
fell in love with Venice
and said that if we retired
to Florida, then Venice is
where we wanted to be.
We retired here in 1989
and bought a condo on
Venice Island because we
did and still do love Ven-
ice the way it is. We never
complained about the
airport because we be-
lieved it was very im-
portant to the communi-
ty for many reasons. Any-
one who retired in Venice
must have spent some
time before they decided
that this is where they

Good job. The person
in the Let'em Have It col-
umn who called about
people getting tickets
who attended the con-
cert in Blalock Park is cor-
rect. There are no "No
parking" signs on the
median on Harbor Drive,
but there is a sign on
each and every median
that says keep off the
median. I don't know
where he is from, but to
me that means that you
must keep your car off
the median whether it
says no parking or not.
"Keep off the median" is
pretty plain. I'm 60 years
old and I know that if this
concert had been for
teenagers and teenagers
had parked there, this
man and his compatriots
would have been cheering
that the police were giving
the teenagers tickets for
parking in the middle of
the road. But since it is the
elderly, we are supposed
to let them park there. I
think the police were
right, and I would like to
give the police chief a pat
on the back for actually
enforcing the law. In the
38 years that I've lived in
Venice, this is the first time
that I've seen people take
advantage of this.

but appearing to lack re-
spect and common sense.
Some examples of this
are "Wacko environmen-
talist" and "God gave us
this earth and God will
take away this earth," "To
people who are presump-
tuous enough to believe
that we mortals can de-
stroy the most magnifi-
cent creation of the entire
universe, I say, get over it."
Get over what? Are you
suggesting that we can
simply go ahead and trash
the magnificent creation
and God will take care of
it? Does that really make
sense to you? God, after
creating the universe,
created man and woman
and he gave them a brain,
hoping they would slip in
some common sense
concerning the preserva-
tion of the universe and
their own well-being. An-
other example is, "To the
people who seem to be
getting gratification from
seeing our automobile
industry reduced to beg-
ging and pleading ...."
Could you please tell us
who those people are? An-
other is, "To those maso-
chists who hate my col-
umn, I say, get over it."
Perhaps those "maso-
chists" are just average
people who are growing
weary of the continued
sarcasm. Certainly they
can skip your column, but
those "masochists" are
also people who pay for
the paper in a time when
the newspaper industry
throughout the United
States is struggling.

It was helpful for DY as
they help council draft a

and airport layout plan.
Council fired its previous

What DY gleaned from
Tuesday's meeting was
significant common
ground.
What I heard, said
Dennis Yap of DY, is "no
expansion" at the airport.
Growth as necessary to
maintain the airport.
"Keep it as is."
"As is," he said, could
mean two things. Keep the


airport as it is laid out to-
day, or create new airport
design standards based on
current traffic counts all
while protecting the city
golf course and keeping
area homes, if possible,
from being labeled as
located in an "RPZ" (run-
way protection zone),
something residents fear
could depreciate the value
of their homes.
Yap said he didn't hear


any discussion of down-
sizing the airport at all.
"There is a sense that
we are getting closer to a
resolution" of the major
issues, said Council
Member Ernie Zavodnyik.
"If anything's different

proposed ordinance. A public hearing
is tentatively scheduled for July 7.
Both Ross and Sarasota building
official Paul Radauskas, who worked
together on the project, said Thursday
that re-addressing in the county will be
a boon to all emergency services agen-
cies, government and private delivery
services, and to tourists.
The project is expected to cost from
$400,000 to $500,000, with the money
coming from 9-1-1 funding, Radauskas
said.


Implementation
While new developments will
immediately fall under the ordinance,
old ones gradually will brought on line,
he said. First, however, information
from 13 databases will have to be unit-
ed and reviewed for errors and consis-
tencies.
The former ordinance sunsetted
seven years ago, and it is only in the last
year and a half that work has been done
on a new one, Radauskas said.
No starting point has been deter-


mined, he said, but an area in the cen-
ter of the county, such as Blackburn
Point Road in Nokomis, might be con-
sidered.
Ross said that now is the optimal
time to begin the re-addressing
process. She said it will take approxi-
mately two years for the database to be
up and running just in time for an
economic upswing and new develop-
ments that could follow.
Radauskas said that when residents
and businesses are advised of a num-


ber or street name change, they have a
year to comply. After that, noncomply-
ing addresses will not be served by the
U.S. Postal Service.
There will be no recourse if a num-
ber is changed. However, if a street
name is changed, an appeal could be
made to a proposed Address Review
Board.

PLAN from Page 1 A


loan program for existing busi-
ness owners and entrepre-
neurs. North Port City Man-
ager Steven S. Crowell said
Tuesday that there's no money
in the fund yet. The city has
several requests out for fund-
ing partners, including the
county.
Crowell said the fund was
created to fill a gap in what the
bank may ask the applicant to
provide. As approved, the city
loan program would have a
maximum loan of $50,000 and
a minimum loan of $10,000.
Any loan would have to be


paid in 36 months.
The Sarasota County five-
year economic development
strategic plan listed six goals
and strategies, including grow-
ing and strengthening the
competitiveness of existing
businesses; developing a
robust environment for inno-
vation and entrepreneurship;
becoming a national leader for
businesses and services that
serve an older demographic;
building a reputation as a pre-
mier location for businesses
and institutions with design
expertise; expanding business


opportunities in applied envi-
ronmental and sustainable
systems; and optimizing how
people, policies and invest-
ments work together to reach
economic goals.
Scruggs said opportunities
exist if the county would focus
on the needs of aging popula-
tions or build a reputation in
design expertise around "com-
munity assets" such as the
Ringling College of Art and
Design.
She also suggested a focus
on water resources could bring
jobs and called the Mote Ma-


rine Laboratory a regional
asset in tourism and in marine
research.
For example, she said,
aquaculture is a $70 billion
annual market. The water
technologies market is esti-
mated at $400 billion annually.
Kathy Baylis, EDC president
and CEO, said the plan is "a
communitywide economic
development strategic plan.
"Everyone has a role in its
implementation," she said.
"It's important we partner
together."
Jones and Treubert said they


wanted to see action.
"Not doing anything is the
definition of insanity," Treu-
bert said. "We've got to take a
chance."
Jones said he is strong on
implementation.
"(We) have to have the
courage to make the change
and to do something differ-
ent," he said. "If you take the
safe route" you may not get the
outcome you expect.

sales pick up


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Sales of homes and condo-
miniums in Venice steadily
increased as the freefall of
smaller-home median prices
continued last month, accord-
ing to the latest home sales
report of the Venice Area Board
of Realtors.
With more than 30 years'
experience, Tim Paradiso,
owner and broker, Paradise
Realty of Venice, 206 South
Harbor Drive, is encouraged by
the trend. He attributes it to
properties in the lower price
range around $100,000 -


mostly held by banks and the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development due to
mortgage defaults, getting
multiple offers and being gob-
bled up.
"Cash is god, but buyers
have to be prepared to pay full
price or even more to be con-
sidered serious," he said.
There is an inventory of sell-
ers, he believes, who will move
into the market, which could
delay any price recovery.
Eventually, though, the real
estate market will regain its
former position.
Is this a recovery trend that
will lead to the end of this


recession? Some indications
are exciting, such as the sales
of homes and condos increas-
ing from the January low of 71
to 107 in February, 124 in
March and 132 last month.
That's comparable to 136 a
year ago, and not far from April
2007 sales at 165.
The trend in median prices
is less encouraging, but it may
be due to short sales as banks
and lenders reduce their in-
ventories. Although it's not en-
couraging to sellers, it is re-
moving many empty eyesores
and soon will lead to higher
prices for smaller homes.
The median price of two-


bedroom homes had experi-
enced a steady increase from
$108,000 in January to $151,500
in March, but dropped dra-
matically, to $119,000, in April.
A year ago the median price
was $160,500 and in 2007 it
was $222,000. Sales reported
this year rose from 14 in Jan-
uary to 26 in February and 38
in March before steadying at
32 last month.
Three-bedroom homes,
which started this year with a
median price of $185,000,
dipped to $172,000 in Feb-
ruary, recovered to $175,000 in
March and perked up to
$205,000 in April. That's still


substantially less than a year
ago, when the median price
was $235,000, and 2007, when
it was $285,000. Sales
increased from 37 in January,
to 49 in February, 53 in March
and 67 last month.
The median price of a con-
do is behaving like a yo-yo,
starting at January at $138,500,
falling in February to $116,500,
increasing in March to $123,750
and dropping again last month
to $120,000.
Sales have been steady at 27
for the past three months fol-
lowing a dismal January total
of only 12.

er of Buddy's, 822 Pine-

food drive to raise aware-
ness about hunger and
hardship in this commu-

vites restaurant guests to
bring cans of food during
this month for which
they receive a $2 credit
up to a maximum of $10
to be used toward the
price of an entree pur-
chased on the donation
day.
"So far I have deliv-
ered more than 1,000
cans," said Arbuckle,
who has a target of 2,500
cans. "I have never seen
such an economic strug-
gle, with the need so
great in our community."
The restaurant has 30
employees and is open
every day from 11 a.m.
Call 485-5064.

FREEDOM BOAT CLUB


20 years ago an idea was born by an innovative company to help people embrace their
free time. A hassle free escapes to relax, connect with friends and create family memories.

Freedom Boat Club began in Sarasota in 1989 and today has 45 locations dotting the
country's waterways. Members enjoy pleasure boating without ownership, insurance,
dock fees, trailers and time consuming maintenance.

Local residents expressed the pleasures that have enriched their lifestyles thanks for
Freedom Boat Club of Venice.

"Own the Water not the Boat is our motto since joining Freedom. We bought a house
on a canal with a dock and originally intended to buy a boat. We joined Freedom
instead and now have access to multiple boats: off shore fishing boats, deck boats for
intra-coastal cruising and the pontoon boats for excursions with friends it's like own-
ing an entire fleet. You don't need a lot of time to enjoy boating, just get to the Venice
dock and they have a boat waiting. Finally, my wife and I enjoy traveling the country
and just to be able to pick up a boat at any of their 40-plus locations, enjoy a pleasur-
able day on the water, and then return the boat without having to do anything else is a
pure dream. It's truly a stress free escape to total relaxation."

Freedom Boat Club's dock masters offer unlimited training for all members into safety
and boat handling techniques.

Freedom Boat Club is located at 990 Laguna Drive off Roberts Bay in Venice.

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR
BOB MUDGE

OUR VIEW



Not seeing the forest or the trees


We wonder if members of the
Florida Legislature, especially
the House of Representatives,
read their local papers or talk to their
neighbors to gauge the effect their
policies have on the communities
they presumably serve.
We wonder this because the same
week the House slipped through a
coastal oil drilling bill, the Charlotte
County School Board felt compelled to
cut bus service along dangerous roads
and intersections to save $700,000.
We wonder this because while the
Legislature obsessed over baggy pants
and bestiality, the Florida High School
Athletic Association voted to cut 20
percent of the games played by varsi-
ty athletes and 40 percent of other
contests over the next two years.
We wonder this because even as





Good news


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


There is a lot of good
news going on right now,
but often we get caught
up in the bad news -
and there certainly is
plenty of that to go
around. Sadly, it is the
bad news readers are
attracted to.
Mayor Ed Martin a few
weeks ago commented to
me that I don't write any
good news, just negative
things about the city, par-
ticularly council. I think I
responded sort of smart-
alecky and said I was tak-
ing his place because
when he wrote columns
for us it was mostly nega-
tive things about the pre-
vious council. I don't
think he saw much hu-
mor in that.
I went on to tell Ed to
please give me some pos-
itive things to write
about. He since has writ-
ten an article about pro-
gress council has made
on many of their objec-
tives certainly some
positive news.
Ed has a point about
positive news. We could
all use more of it, and to
that end the Gondolier
Sun is going to take good
news from all over the
county and put it on the
front page of our paper.
How does that sound? It
might not sell papers, but
maybe, just maybe, it will
help turn things around.
This is a participatory
venture, however. We are
asking everyone to send
us good news that shows
the economy is turning
around. While it is good
news that someone is
having a 100th birthday,
that isn't what we are
looking for.
We want to hear from
people at the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce,
Venice MainStreet, the
Venice Area Board of
Realtors, the Economic
Development Corpora-
tion, the city and the
county, as well as individ-
uals with information
about how things are get-
ting better.
Maybe it's an increase
in bank or mortgage
activity or building starts.
It could be good news
from our schools, which
are so critical to our suc-
cess. It could be stimulus
money being spent. We


the Legislature voted to weaken
growth management laws, it killed
the Florida Forever program that pro-
tects the state's most ecologically
important land from development.
Forget that past Legislatures help-
ed create this fiscal mess by raiding
trust funds to balance budgets and
robbing rainy day reserves to pay for
tax cuts that the average resident
never received.
Forget that pandering to voters
exacerbated the budget crunch by
forcing local governments and school
boards to slash payrolls and capital
investments even as most economists
agreed stimulus spending is the prop-
er prescription.
The litany of missteps and misguid-
ed actions by this Legislature makes us
wonder if our state leaders are simply


will likely sprinkle in
some state and national
news with positive signs
outside the area.
Please keep them
short. Editor Bob Mudge
plans to list them as bul-
let points so we can get
several in each issue. We
will not always use all of
them.
Please don't let me
down. Send your good
news not just once,
but every week to
bmudge@venicegondo-
lier.com.
Thanks for helping us
promote the turn-
around.
And don't worry, I will
still write about things
that I think deserve to be
pointed out, whether
good or bad.

By's Crack: Moth-
er's Day just took
place. I'm very loyal to
relationships. Even
when I went out with
my mom, I didn't look
at other moms.


Jeff McCay was once
the assistant county ad-
ministrator for South
County and later went to
work for Tri County Air
Conditioning. Those who
knew him were very
lucky.
Jeff passed away last
Saturday after a very long
and courageous battle
with cancer. He had in-
credible faith and spirit,
much like our wonderful
Fran Valencic has. He
was a special father and a
great friend to those who
knew him.
Here is a wonderful
story that I have to pass
along. Jeff's daughter Me-
gan is graduating from
Venice High in a couple
of weeks. Knowing Jeff
would not make it, Can-
dy Millington, the princi-
pal, arranged with others
to have a graduation cer-
emony at the McCays'

bouncing from one decision to the next
with little appreciation for their cumu-
lative effects on their communities.
If the Legislature's vision is realized,
we'll have oil rigs off our beaches, but
no librarians in our libraries. We'll
have more developments on busier
roads and fewer buses for our chil-
dren to ride to school, even as vouch-
ers for private schools get another
boost. We'll have fewer events after
school to keep our kids active and
engaged and less law enforcement to
protect us from those who slip
through the wider cracks.
We understand how politics works,
whether that's Congress or the state
Legislature. Our representatives get
information from lots of sources in
the course of trying to decide what's
best for the people who elected them.


But we can't believe they really
think uncontrolled growth, coastal oil
rigs, slashed extracurricular budgets
and other byproducts of this Legisla-
tive session represent the views of
their constituents. Just once, we
would have liked to have heard them
stand up to their leaderless leadership
and say, "Are you kidding?"
The economic climate virtually
guaranteed nobody would leave Tal-
lahassee happy. Sure enough, people
from university presidents to chain
smokers have their noses out of joint.
We were prepared to embrace diffi-
cult decisions made in good faith.
What we've seen instead is haphazard
leadership, sneaky ideological gam-
bits and deals with special interests
that don't reflect the broader interests
of Floridians.


LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Citizens won't vote not to vote


Editor:
There is a school of thought that some things
should be left for bureaucrats and politicians to
decide. That the public at large should not be making
decisions on items like infrastructure, who the sheriff
should be and which citizen serves us on the Charter
Review Board.
When it comes to spending more than $20 million
on baseball, the county charter is the only tool we
have to protect our right to decide how to spend that
money. The noble citizens who serve on the Charter
Review Board are all that "Joe Citizen" has to make
those decisions on his behalf.
Now extreme-right politico Bob Waechter, past
chair of the county Republican Party, and the Sarasota
Herald-Tribune want to take the right to elect our
Charter Review Board away from us. They want an
appointed board from a "select group of qualified cit-
izens."
Having lived in Sarasota 42 years of my life, I know
that the citizenry here is made up in of people who
value their rights and prove it by how they vote. They
will also work to collect signatures (not an easy task)
to change the county charter for fair election laws and
sensible growth requirements, and to protect our
right to home rule.
Make my day put this on the ballot so I can
watch this referendum get trounced, yet again prov-
ing the wisdom of Sarasota County voters.

Thanks to a bunch
of good eggs
Editor:
Having just celebrated
National Volunteer Week
in Venice, I would like to
take a moment to high-
light four groups who
helped Venice MainStreet
Inc. with our annual Egg-
stravaganza in Centen-
nial Park.
The Lions Club has
been integral in the orga-
nization of this event for
years. Its members pick-
ed up the 5,000 eggs from
the Venice MainStreet
Inc. office and divided
them up for the age
groups. They are at Cen-
tennial Park early in the
morning to rope off the
egg-hunting area and


they put out the eggs for
each group.
The Warehouse kids
have been on hand the
last few years to help
entertain the kids while
they wait for their hunt-
ing turn. They dance the
Macarena with gusto and
help the little ones be
brave enough to stand
next to the Easter Bunny
for a photo.
The First Baptist
Church has a wonderful
group that sets up tables
and chairs and then gets
to work painting innu-
merable little faces with
bunnies and myriad
other fun images.
TheVenice AreaYoung
Professionals were on
site early in the morning


to help stake out the
hunting grounds and
help with distributing the
eggs so the waiting time
between heats was kept
to a minimum. They
were also ready to do
whatever needed to get
done at the last moment.
Eggstravaganza 2009
was the best ever, and
that's because we had so
much help from such
great volunteers. Thank
you.

Plan is anti
everything
Editor:
The city of Venice's
new 10-year comprehen-
sive plan is essentially an
exclusionary zoning doc-
ument. It discriminates
against old and young of
modest means. It's anti-
height, anti-density, anti-
business, anti-tourist
and pro-urban sprawl.
It violates the princi-
ples of John Nolen's mas-
ter plan. It ignores smart
growth and new urban-
ism ideas adopted by the
county.
I urge the citizens of
Venice to send a letter to
the state Department of
Community Affairs re-
questing rejection of the
proposed plan.

Don O'Connell

We need one
more party
Editor:
I was at the tea party
in Venice. I had no idea
that there were so many
people in this small town
who were fed up with the


outlandish spending
going on in Washington.
Trillions!
We were there peace-
fully venting our outrage
of the spending by both
Democrats and Repub-
licans who are supposed
to serve all people here in
the United States. I was a
Democrat for many
years, then an indepen-
dent and now am a regis-
tered Republican be-
cause my party of the
people has become a
party of special interests.
I am not a right-wing
conservative, although I
believe in life as stated in
the Constitution. We as
Americans are endowed
with rights: life, liberty
and the pursuit of happi-
ness.
I was glad to be at our
tea party, and I for one
would like a new party in
Washington titled the
Common Sense Party,
with which I would like
to sign up.

Residents need

The members of Jetty

cent to the South Jetty

a hazard.
After years of posting
"No Trespassing" signs,

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


How to catch,

steam and eat

blue crabs

Mr. Sheepshead was born
and raised in the Baltimore
area. They say babies are
born with a crab mallet in
their hand there. Chesapeake
Bay country is definitely the
home of crab eaters.
The reason I'm writing
about blue crabs in a fishing
article is very simple: Our
area happens to be a great for
quality and quantity of these
delicious critters. Back in
Maryland, the demand is so
high that most of their crabs
come from the Gulf area.
Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama and Florida are the
top states.
I get my crabs by two dif-
ferent methods. One is to
actually catch them, either
with traps or hand lines. The
other is to simply buy them.
Before I forget, the crab-
eating area has expanded
somewhat since my youth.
Now besides Maryland and
Virginia, there are crab hous-
es in about six or so other
nearby states. These crab
houses are usually neighbor-
hood bars that cater to these
crab eaters.
Getting back to catching
crab. Chicken necks or other
parts of the chicken work
fine. You may add a small
weight to the line.
When the line starts to
move or tighten, pull the line
in very slowly. Remember
these crabs are not hooked,
so be very careful not to jerk
the line. Then dip them as
they come to the surface. You
can also tie several pieces of
bait (fish also works fine) to a
collapsible trap.
Most of the time I buy my
crabs. They must be alive and
fresh at steaming time, so I
rush home and put the bag in
my freezer for two to three
hours. Crabs do not have
blood, so this just stuns them
and assures freshness.
I have a rack on the bot-
tom of my steamer (to keep
them out of the liquid). I use
about a can of cheap beer per
dozen crabs. I season them
with my generic Old Bay sea-
soning and sprinkle pow-
dered mustard on each crab.
I cook them at medium heat
for about 35-40 minutes. I
never open the steamer until
they are finished.
We have a tradition in
Maryland. One must eat these
crabs with the Baltimore Sun
newspaper as the tablecloth.
It gets expensive having all of
those papers mailed to me.
If you need any more infor-
mation about blue crabs,
kindly contact me.
Fellow Sheepsheadites,
we'll talk again next week.

Hack. Contact him at

SOFTBALL: CLASS 5A FINAL FOUR


Pressure off Venice in return to states


Zgrabik:'We are
going back to win'
BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

This year is a little different
for Venice as the Lady Indians
make their return to the Class
5A Final Four.
Last year, the senior-laden
Lady Indians were favored
top team in the state with a
30-0 record and the pressure
of not only winning a state
title but completing the
unbeaten season.
This year, Venice, which
was state runner-up last year,
had to rebuild with a new
shortstop, second baseman,
third baseman and all three
outfield positions.
With only two seniors and
many questions, no one
expected the Lady Indians to
make a return trip to Plant
City Stadium.
However, the two-time
regional champions are back
without the added pressure.
Venice (22-7-1) opens the
state tournament against North
Fort Myers (27-3) at 5 p.m.
Wednesday.
The Lady Indians do have 10

CLASS 4A FHSAA TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS




Archer captures 2nd in state


Williams ties for
fifth in pole vault
BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Second-place to the fastest
guy ever in the state of Florida.
Venice senior Dri Archer will
take it.
Archer used a lean at the
tape to capture the silver
medal in the 100-meter dash
with a time of 10.61 seconds on
Saturday in the Class 4A FHSAA
Track and Field Champion-
ships at Showalter Field in
Winter Park.
"It wasn't his best time but
good enough to finish second
in the state meet in 4A, the
biggest classification, and fin-
ish second to a guy who is the
fastest all-time in the state
meet," Venice boys coach Larry
Shannon said.
The speedster became the
highest Venice High finisher at
states since Sean Mather
placed second in the 3,200-
meter run in 1992. He is also
the first male athlete at Venice
to place at states since Kyle
Brunette placed fifth in the
3,200-meter run in 2006.
"Definitinely some history
involved with what he did
today for our high school and
our community," Shannon
said.
Archer wasn't the only
Venice athlete to bring home a
state medal as junior Heather
Williams tied for fifth in the
pole vault for her medal.
"She is thrilled," Venice girls
coach Brenda Clark said. "She
was injured last year and didn't
get to go to districts so she was
on a mission the whole time.
She is happy and I am thrilled
for her. I think she is only going
to get better and stronger."
In the finals, Archer, who
signed to play football at Kent
State University, got out quick
and edged Deerfield Beach's
Denard Robinson with a time
of 10.61 seconds. Robinson's
time was 10.62 seconds.
"The start was pretty bad,"
Archer said of his final race. "I
just had to catch up in the race
and finish strong."
Archer admitted he was ner-
vous before the race.
"I just had to finish the race
and do the best I can," said
Archer, who set the school
record of 10.49 seconds last
week at regional. "It means I'm
the second fastest guy in the

state so you got a lot of rep."
Neither runner was close
to state champion Dentarius
Locke of Chamberlain as the
University of Tennessee signee
cruised to the line with a state-
record time of 10.31 seconds.
The only record was 10.37
seconds set in 2007 by South
Lake's Jeffrey Demps in Class
2A. Demps is currently a run-
ning back at the University of
Florida.
"The kid (Locke) is fast,"
Archer said. "I can be second to
him any day. It's fine with me."
"I'm very proud of him,"
Shannon said. "That is what
we've been talking about the
last half of the season is to
come here and win a medal
and how big of an accomplish-
ment that is. I'm excited. He got
faster as the weeks went by and
credit all goes to him for work-
ing hard. I'm proud of him. I'm
almost in tears."
In the preliminaries, Archer
won his heat by edging Piper's
John Reed. It was so close tour-
nament officials had to revert
to 1000ths of a second. Archer
crossed the line in 10.705 sec-
onds while Reed's time was
10.710 seconds.
In the pole vault, it took a


miss on her first attempt to get
Williams mad and refocused.
Williams missed her open-
ing height of 8 feet but cleared
on her second attempt then
proceeded to get over the bar at
8 feet, 6 inches, 9 feet and 9-6
on her first attempt.
"She missed her first
attempt as she had butterflies
and reverted back to her old
way of vaulting," Clark said. "I
said to her, Are you going back
to the old way today?' and she
said, 'No I'm not.'"
According to witnesses,
Williams nearly cleared 10 feet.
However by making 9-6,
Williams tied for fifth place with
Riverview's Kelsey Karlstrand.
Tampa Gaither senior Morgan
Scherschel won with 11-7.
"I missed at 8 (feet) and it
kind of made me mad then it
got better from there," Williams
said. "I wanted to place and I
wanted 10 (feet) so I got half of
it so that is OK. I have one more
year."
Venice brought nine boys
and three girls to states.
"We brought nine young
men to states and that is a great
accomplishment," Shannon
said.

Venice's Dri Archer waves to the
crowd with the silver medal
draped around his neck after tak-
ing second in the 100-meter dash
in the Class 4A FHSAA Track and
Field Championships on Saturday
in Winter Park. Archer became the
highest Venice High state finisher
in 17 years.

4x100 meter relay preliminar-
ies cost Venice's team of Trey
Burton, Max Brandow, Robert
Fordham and Archer a chance
at a medal.
The drop occurred on the
second exchange between
Brandow and Fordham.
"The handoff wasn't clean,"
Shannon said. "Rob barely had
it and when he went to re-grip
it, Max thought he had it and let
it go. It's a timing thing. We
haven't had that happen all
year. Disappointed they didn't
finish the race because I look at
the times and we definitely
were one of the top eight teams
in the state."
Venice senior Ben Steele just
missed qualifying for the shot
put final.
On his second attempt, Steele,
who leaves for the University of
Toledo on June 28 for football,
tossed the shot put 49 feet, 3 1/2
inches for 11th place, just 2 1/2
inches from the top eight.

and get gold ones," Mel
Dembinski said. "So that is my
motivation. I don't like that sil-
ver medal in my room at all."
"I just want to try and actu-
ally win it," Parsons said. "It
wasn't a fun ride home."
Very few people thought the
team would be back.
"In the past you realize it
only takes a few games to win,"
said Sandburg, who has a 102-
15 record in four years with
four district titles and two
regional crowns. "It wasn't that
I didn't know I wasn't really 100
percent I could do it with these
kids. I knew had to rebuild or
reload."
"We didn't think we would
come close to this," Zgrabik
said. "The beginning of the
season was jagged."
For the Lady Indians, it was
just a matter of time until the
team played like one unit.
"Definitely them getting
used to new positions and us
getting to know the girls more,"
Zgrabik said. "Now that we are
starting to gel a little bit it's def-
initely working out a little bet-
ter."
"I think we finally starting
working together as a team
and everything just flowed
together as one," Parsons said.

"I guess we can actually play

the Manatee game. "We can
actually do this."
"It took so long for these
kids to gel," Sandburg said. "It


really is hard to fill the posi-
tions we had to fill."
"I think their confidence is
just so much better than it
was at the beginning of the
year," Sandburg said. "They
have kind of fallen into a
mode where they know what


they are doing right now. It's a
lot more fun right now."
However, the Lady Indians
have two constants pitcher
Sullivan, the Class 5A Player of

Zgrabik.
"When you have someone
like Stephanie you are always

"It's just a matter of making the
right plays."
Sullivan (20-3) has not been

the senior, who signed to play

The right-hander has 174

she has allowed just five runs

"When she pitches she
throws strikes and the defense
is ready," Sandburg said. "If
pitchers are throwing balls
and all over the place, the
defense isn't ready. We know
the ball is either going to be hit
or it's going to be a strikeout."
"It's very exciting to be going
back," Sullivan said.

"Not bad but not what I wanted
to get," said Steele, who wanted 50
feet. "I felt all right but not my best.
Prom was last night and that proba-
bly didn't help that much."
In the 4x800 relay, the Venice
team of Jake Scully, David Enander,
Brian White and Dillon Boyd took
15th with a time of 8:38.99.
In the girls 400-meter dash,
sophomore Alyssa Tresch closed out
the season on a positive note with a
personal best time of 1:00.17, which


was good enough for
13th place out of 16
runners after the pre-
liminaries.
"It's great," Clark
said. "She was hoping

Williams would at least PR. I

thing more. She was so nervous. A
great learning experience for her.
She said she enjoyed it and had a


good time. Now she knows what to
expect so she will be better pre-
pared mentally for it next time."
Venice junior Breanna Hafeli
placed 13th in the discus with a
throw of 91 feet, 5 inches, which
was more than 10 feet off her best
throw of 111 feet, 10 inches.
"I think she let some of the better
throwers get to her," Clark said. "She
saw some of them throw 140 and
130. I just think the whole thing got
in her head."

BY BOB BYLER
GUEST WRITER
The recent jazz concert at the Venice Art Center featured compositions by
Ed Marshall and Tommy Goodman. Marshall may be best known for ,
"Venus," which was a hit recording for singer Frankie Avalon in 1959. Venice
resident Dick Hyman performed on that recording.
Hyman and his wife, Julia, were sponsors of the Hal's Piano Series con-
cert, named for Hal Vincent, who donated the grand piano to the art cen-
ter. I believe the series has gone on for two years, with three concerts per
season.
Hyman emceed the concert, which featured Goodman on piano, Jim ,
Wellen on tenor sax, Dominic Mancini on bass and David Pruyn on
drums and as a vocalist. During the concert, Hyman interviewed
Goodman and Marshall about their music and their careers.
Pruyn sang four of Marhsall's tunes and played drums in a quartet
that performed three of Goodman's tunes. From Sarasota, Pruyn leads
a big band and various groups. He has led jams at Holiday House in
.' Venice for three years. I
Mancini, who lives in North Port, played bass during the concert.,
During the Venice Jazz at Two concert in February, he performed in
i, the trio ofVenice guitarist Dave Trefethen.
Marshall is well-known as a composer. Among his songs per- l
formed at the Venice Art Center were "No, No, Not That," "Summer
Girl," "Star Bright" and "Make Room for One More."
AVenice resident, Wellen performed in the concert combo and also in
Trefethen's trio. April 3, Wellen led the Sarasota Jazz at Two concert. He
plays with many groups in the area.
Goodman, a Sarasota resident, has worked with Louis Armstrong,
Lena Home, Sammy Davis Jr. and others over the years. During the VAC
concert, the musicians performed several of his works, including "Busy
Bossa," "Jodi's Waltz" and "Rush Hour." Several recordings of his work
also were played at the concert. They were: "Pocahontas," excerpts :
from his synthesized ballet score and "Thy Lips are Like a Scarlet .
Thread" and excerpts from Goodman's opera, "The Dybbuk." '
Goodman was the pianist on those recordings.
That was the final Venice jazz concert of the season, but the
Sarasota Jazz Club still has several Jazz at Two events coming up in

schedule. Lisa
Callahan and Judy
Novak's second-grade
. t classes from Laurel
Nokomis School
arrived at the Venice
Area Audubon Rook-
ery for a look at the

scopes and binocu-
lars. They took a
nature hike, identify-
ing several species of
Plants and birds. Then
it was on to Shamrock
Park, where master
gardener Lu-Anne
Rhoten showed the
park's well-manicured
butterfly garden and
the children looked
for caterpillars and .
cocoons. Then the
hunt was on for the
declining Florida
scrub jay and the
gopher tortoises.
Thanks go out to all
the VAAS volunteers _

School volunteers honored by PALS


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


Several students, adults and
seniors who make a difference as
volunteers at local schools were
honored at the Partnerships and
Alliances Linking Schools annual
recognition breakfast recently at
Michael's On East.
PALS Partners in Education's
Community Advisory Board and
the Education Foundation of Sara-
sota County Inc. co-sponsored the
event.
Gabe Hament, a junior at Pine
View School, received awards as
the school, district and regional
outstanding youth volunteer, and
was also honored as one of five
outstanding youth volunteers in
the state by the Florida Depart-
ment of Education.
Hament and Theodoretus
Breen, also a Pine View junior, de-
veloped an organization they
named Universal Environmental
Strategies. Through the organiza-
tion, the pair created a mechanism
for the school to implement green
projects on campus that will serve
as a sustainable example for other
district schools.
In addition, Hament created
Cycad Garden with guidance from
school staffmembers. Plants in the
garden require no fertilization and
hardly any water.
Lynn Perkins volunteers at
Taylor Ranch Elementary School
and received the Longstanding
PALS award.
Ruth Fleegler received the
Golden PALS Award for her volun-
teer work at Pine View School.
The 2009 Bette Woodson Schol-
arship award for Outstanding
Volunteer Service went to Cynthia


Wilkins, a senior at Venice High
School. The monetary scholarship
honors senior students who saw a
need and took the lead in a
responsive action that benefits the
community.

FROM AVE MARIA
PREPARATORY
SCHOOL

The nonprofit Ave
Maria Preparatory
School for Special
Learning will hold an
open house for the 2009-
10 school year on
Tuesday, May 19, from 8
a.m. to 2 p.m. for parents
and students. The school
is located at Girls Inc.,
201 S. Tuttle Ave., Sara-
sota.
Ave Maria accepts K-
12 students and is the
only special-needs
school in the Sarasota-
Manatee area offering a
regular Florida high
school diploma to spe-
cial learning students.
During the open
house, parents and stu-
dents will observe first-
hand how the school
provides a unique edu-
cational atmosphere for
the wide variety of learn-
ing issues and chal-


lenges presented by the
students.
Ave Maria's curricu-
lum is based on Florida
Department of Educa-
tion standards, and most
students qualify for a
McKay Scholarship to
cover costs.
The school serves a
wide area, with students
attending from Venice,
Port Charlotte, North
Port, Sarasota, Braden-
ton, Palmetto and Par-
rish.
Founded by Sister Gil-
christ Cottrell, C.E., of
the Community of the
Epiphany order, the
school is nondenomina-
tional and does not offer
religion. The school
opened in 2004 and
graduated its first class
in 2008 when nine stu-
dents received diplomas.

be Recreational
golfers rarely do more
than take a few practice
swings before setting foot
on the course. This casual
warm-up does little to
prepare golfers' bodies for the
stresses they must withstand as
they play the game. Due to the
violent torsional forces and
extended range of motion involved
in swinging a club, golf can be very
hard on the back. Each year,
thousands of players visit emergency
rooms with golf-related injuries,
Many of which could have been
prevented with a 15-minute warm-up
before each round. Five minutes of
brisk walking followed by a few
simple stretches can go a long way in
preventing golf-related injuries.
Moreover, golfers might want to
consider the benefits that regular
chiropractic treatment can
provide.


P.S. A golf swing combines
compression, torsion, and lateral
bending, producing a motion that
is a risk factor for low-back pain
and disc herniation.

The Epiphany Council of
Catholic Women's Woman of
theYear was announced April
23 at the group's annual
Spring Luncheon at the
Venice Yacht Club.
Irene Sullivan was sur-
prised as she accepted her
award from Council President
Edna Rohan.
Sullivan, a part-timeVenice
resident since 1987, is an
active member of the coun-
cil. She was on the commit-
tee for the fashion show in
March that netted $8,000,
which was presented by Mary


Marryott to Epiphany School
Principal Irene Lynch.
"This will allow us to give
four $2,000 scholarships for
students to attend Epiphany
School," a grateful Lynch said.
The CCWis one more con-
vivialVenice group dedicated
to helping others.
Vive la difference.
Collectors' Gallery & Fram-
ery hosted a reception April
23 for two artists with very
different styles.
Agnes Resen paints vivid,
primitive- style watercolors of
Antigua from her memories
of 15 years of visits there.
Born in Estonia, she began
dabbling with watercolors as
a child and has never had an
art lesson. Now a U.S. citizen,
she has lived in Venice since
1991. Her paintings evoke the
gaiety, colors and spirit of the
Caribbean.
Pat Mumper abandoned
art school to make a living
doing corporate art and was
a dedicated realist. When a
teacher in Connecticut intro-
duced her to abstract art, she


was hooked. Now she waxes
poetic over piles of junk that
she incorporates into her
unique abstract artworks.
"Artists are the first recy-
clists you see everything in
abstract art, even bottle caps,"
she said. "It's therapy, it's
solace, it's fun." Until May 30,
the gallery will make a dona-
tion to Venice Area Historical
Society for each sale made of
these artists' works. It is locat-
ed at 114 S. Nokomis Ave.
Who has the
most fun in Venice?
The gals in Women's
Sertoma really know how to
have fun while raising money
to help people. Their Quiz
Nite on April 14 at Club 455,
co-chaired by Mary Moyer
and Sharon Brown, raised
almost $1,500, and the mem-
bers made up the difference
so they could donate $500
each to Rotary Futures,

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


The week that was
During the same week
that Florida's legistla-
ture decided to stop
funding the arts in the state,
members of the American
Theatre Critics Association
visited the state's cultural
capital, Sarasota.
They attended plays, toured
the Opera House, Ca d'Zan
and Tibbals Learning Center
and Circus Museum, visited
Marie Selby Botanical Gardens
and heard presentations by
local architect Carl Abbott as
well as by representatives of
area theaters and museums.
After their six-day conference,
they headed home with a
bonus story about a true
cultural mecca and how it
evolved.
These people appreciate
more than most how culture
enriches our lives and shared
the distress of us locals when
we learned what the legisla-
tors had done.
Florida's number one
business is tourism. It is not
fueled simply by amusement
parks and beaches, especially
in Sarasota, which probably
draws more visitors to the
Ringling Museum complex,
the opera and the theaters
than to the white sand at
Siesta Key.
That many of those tourists
ultimately settle in the area as
snowbirds and then year-
round residents also enriches
the area. Those people
support the arts. They buy
tickets. They make donations.
We reap the benefits, which
include year-round jobs in the
arts, one of the areas largest
employment sectors, and a
plethora of volunteer oppor-
tunities where we can learn
new skills such as acting,
painting, dancing, singing and
so much more.
Too bad our legislators do
not understand that the arts
are not worthless but price-
less.

Cultural Center Theater manager ready to break

out for a one-night solo debut performance


By NICK MILANO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Two years ago, the
Cultural Center of
Charlotte County put
on a performance for
the USO. With a 1940s
American swing theme,
the show brought
feelings of nostalgia
and patriotism to the
audience.
As the night came to
a close, a somewhat
unknown vocalist took
the stage for the final
piece. Few people in
the crowd knew her
name or that she was a
hometown singer, with
a college degree to
back up her voice.
However, when
Amanda Segur began
to sing "God Bless
America," her name
was forever etched in
crowd's memory.
"There wasn't a single
dry eye in the room,"
said Donna Barrett,
marketing director of
the Cultural Center and
a co-worker of Segur's.
Born and raised in
Englewood, Segur got
her start in music when
her parents bought her
a piano at the age of 8.
"My parents were
wonderful," she said.
Her first performance
was a modest one:
playing the part of a
boy in an elementary
school musical. How-
ever, her voice stole the
show, Barrett recalled.
Throughout her
education at Lemon
Bay High School, Segur


What 'Amanda One Night Only'
Featuring Amanda Segur
When: 7 p.m. Saturday.
Where: Cultural Center Theater
2280 Aaron St.,

Info: 941-625-4175, ext. 221.

participated in vocal
ensembles and theater
programs, gaining a
reputation for her
powerful voice. After
many performances,
friends and critics
would congratulate
her, but always had one
word of advice for her
vocal talent.
"You should try
opera," they'd say.
After graduating in
2000, Segur did just
that, going on to study
music at Stetson
University. At Stetson,
she obtained her
Bachelor of Music as
well as a Master's
in Business Adminis-
tration.
Those degrees were
the perfect fit for a
position in her home-
town with the Cultural
Center of Charlotte
County, where Segur is
theater manager.
"Amanda's experience
and knowledge far
exceeds her age," said
Cultural Center Execu-
tive Director Jim
Hageman. "She's done
a fantastic job growing
the theater depart-
ment."
Since returning to
Charlotte County,
Segur has worked with


a handful of bands and
theaters including
Turning Leaf Produc-
tions, Charlotte County
Big Band and the
North Port Orchestra.
"She's a hard worker,"
said Judy Gerlach of
the North Port Orches-
tra, who Segur per-
formed briefly with as
guest vocalist. "She's
extremely talented
and well received by
audiences."
That talent and hard
work are what led the
Cultural Center to host
Segur's first solo
performance,
"Amanda: One Night
Only," at 7 p.m.
Saturday.
The show is an
eclectic mix of music.
"Growing up, I
listened to a lot of my
parents' music," Segur
said, "A lot of '50s,
'60s and '70s rock."


As a kid, she also
had an interest in the
theater, attending her
first musical in sixth
grade: a production
of "Les Miserables."
The set list for Segur's
performance includes
pieces ranging from
Bizet's "Carmen" to the
classic rock sounds of
Stevie Nicks.
Musicians Ken Crisp,
Bob Ryan, Brewster
Dombkowski and Joe
Pariseau will join
Segur.
Tickets are $12 each
and are on sale at The
Cultural Center box
office. Tickets may also
be purchased by phone
at 941-625-4175, ext.

Warhol lives again at Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg


May 13-14, 2009


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
As Impressionists
influenced the art of the
19th century, Andy Warhol
influenced art in the
20th century.
To see what all the noise
was about when Warhol
happened on the art
scene, one need only take
a road trip to the
Museum of Fine Arts
in St. Petersburg.
Opening Saturday is the
exhibit, Andy Warhol
Portfolios: Life and
Legends, an exhibition
featuring works on loan
from Bank of America's
Art in Our Communities
Program.
Warhol's influence was
especially obvious because
of its crisp and clean lines,
which were a dramatic
change from what some
viewers considered the
"fuzzy" quality of the
impressionists. As the MFA
has a number of fine
impressionistic works in its
permanent collection, the
museum near the St.
Petersburg pier, is a great
place to begin a study of
Warhol and his influence.
For those who already
are Warhol fans, the
exhibition is a chance to
revisit the work of the man
who was not only a major
artist of that century but

also a major celebrity.
Warhol was out and about
virtually every night with
the movers and shakers of
the art scene especially
the more avant garde.
Derided by some when
his famous Campbell's
Soup print was intro-
duced, Warhol inspired
many to take a fresh
look at everyday objects
and people.
The MFA show includes
72 screenprints ranging
from the soup labels to
some of his famous
celebrity portraits, a self-
portrait from 1981 and
even a Keith Haring
cartoon/portrait ofWarhol
in the guise of another
icon a certain mouse
known around the world.
Warhol's portraits of
Marilyn Monroe, Super-


man, Uncle Sam and
Howdy Doody show were
considered playful at the
time they were done but
now seem to showcase the
century as well or better
than any other art of the
time. Also part of the
exhibit is a Robert
Maplethorpe photograph
taken year before Warhol
died from surgical complica-
tions of a gall bladder
operation in 1987. He was 59.
Nature inspired too,
resulting in "Flowers and
Space Fruit: Still Lifes,"
"Sunset," "Hand Colored
Flowers" and "Grapes."
Diamond-dusted, the
grape series stood apart
from much of Warhol's
other work when complet-
ed. One aspect that was
consistent in all of
Warhol's work was his
color sense. That he began
his career in commercial
art remained obvious in all
his work, which was highly
influenced by advertising
and the culture of the
times in which he lived
and led, although some-
times seemingly from the
sidelines in the earliest
years. In later years, that
changed, and he became
as well known as the
people with which he
partied nightly at Studio
54 in New York during the
era of sex, drugs and rock-


n-roll. Also into music, he
designed several record
album covers for musician
friends. In 1969, he
founded Interview
magazine, which became
another legacy of the
multi-talented artist who
had a flair for knowing
what people would like to
see, hear and read. When
he took to wearing his
wigs of many hues, he
appeared as colorful as his
paintings and by then, he
was so popular, he could
get away with being so
outlandish.
As he aged, he drew
inspiration from younger
artists such as Keith
Haring, with whom he
collaborated, even signing
Haring's "Andy Mouse,"
which was created to
honor Warhol.
Also featured in this
show are Warhol's Ten
Portraits of Jews of the
twentieth Century, which
paid homage to such
luminaries as Gertrude
Stein, the Marx Brothers
and George Gershwin.
Warhol himself, was a
devout Christian, whose
final series of paintings
included his own version
of "The Last Supper."
When Warhol died, he
left most of his fortune to
establish The Andy Warhol
Foundation for the Visual


Arts, which supports
emerging artists and
encourages experimenta-
tion.
Warhol's work, spon-
sored by the Bank of
America's Art in Our
Communities Program, will
be featured at the museum
Saturday to Aug. 16.

Leon Pitts II, Tsadock
Porter, Whitney Reshard,
Sheldon Rhoden, Kenessa
"Nisi" Weaver and Jhana
Wilson.
Each one is loaded with


talent, which becomes as we were, around the
more and more obvious as tiny square platform stage,


they change partners,
forming and reforming
duets to perform music of
the 70s that literally takes
one back to that golden
age of Motown hits.
Choreographed in the
Motown manner and
backed up by musicians
Todd Bellamy on key-
boards, James Dodge II on
bass and Etienne "EJ"
Porter on Drums, the show
had people dancing at
their seats and, at times,
even with the cast. Seated


there was an intimacy not
often found at such high-
energy musical perfor-
mances. It was more like
being in someone's living
room with the best of the
best. The choreography is
sharp, and the singers
relate to one another as
well as singers in any first-
rate cabaret show.
The cast led off with
'Ain't No Mountain High
Enough", segued right into
"...the Real Thing" and
continued for some two


hours, changing partners
and sound, breaking only
for an intermission. The
energy level had no
intermission.
What a journey down
memory lane this show is,
and the non-theater
setting somehow makes it
all the more interesting.
Sunday night, the walls
were plain as the art
center was between
shows. As there were
stacks of works waiting to
be hung, succeeding
shows are likely to have a
bonus music in a


museum setting.
Now in its tenth season,
West Coast Black Theatre
Troupe is yet another
reason that Sarasota is the
heart of the Cultural
Capital of Florida.
Sarasota Art Center is at
707 North Tamiami Trail.
There is plenty of parking
out front.
Tickets are $20 per
person. Performances are
at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday
and Sunday and at 2 p.m.
on Sunday.

Osprey woman pens ettiquette book


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Just in time for national
Ettiquette Week, local
writer Marilu Thorn-
burgh's book, "Twelve
Steps to Charm, Etiquette
and Self-Improvement,"
has been published.
"I believe in old fash-
ioned charm and eti-
quette, the kind my
mother and grandmother
taught me," she said. "I


felt as if I could have
lunch with the president
and feel relaxed. I know
my social graces and how
to use them."
Believing that a knowl-
edge of ettiquette is
essential in today's world,
Thornburgh also built a
workshop and summer
camp program around her
book. A workbook version
of the main book is given
to her workshop and


camp participants.
The six-week-long
summer camp session for
girls 8 to 14 will be given
at ballroom City at payne
Park Auditorium, 2100
laurel St., Sarasota each
Friday from 10 a.m. to
2 p.m. There will be no
session on July 3. Basic
ballroom dancing is
included.
A four-week workshop
program beginning


Monday, July 6 will cover
table manners, setting a
table for informal and
formal occasions, intro-
ductions, telephone
ettiquette, ballroom basics
and proper behavior at
social events. The work-
shop will be held at the
Lully Ballet School,
1308 South Tamiami Trail,
Osprey. Sessions will
be 2 to 5 p.m.
Thornburgh graduated


from the E. Lane Ballard
School of Charm and
Etiquette in Washington,
D. C., the Patricia
Stephens Modeling
School in San Antonio,
Texas and the Ben Shaw
School of Charm, Eti-
quette and Modeling in
San Antonio, Texas. She
has owned and operated
charm and etiquette
schools for some 40 years
and has taught charm,


etiquette, modeling and
ballroom dance all over
the world. Graduates of
her programs have been
named Miss Caribbean
and Miss Teen America.
For information,
call Thornburgh at
941-306-1825 or visit
www.MissMarilu.com
to purchase the book.
"Ballroom Dance Made
Simple"also is available on
the Web site.


Venice Theatre's 'Outsiders' has growing pains


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre may
have given itself too big
a challenge when it
chose to produce "The
Outsiders."
Adapted for the
theater by Christopher
Sergel from the book by
S. E. Hinton, "The
Outsiders" is a classic
coming of age play.
The story pits the
Socs (uppercrust high
school students) against
the Greasers, with
dire consequences
for several of the
characters.
Cast members gave it
their best shot opening
night but too many of
them were simply too
young and immature for
their roles. All the
makeup and costuming
in the world cannot
address that. Even a 13-
year-old James Dean
probably would not


have been able to carry
off most of the parts in
this story. There are
some meaty roles in
"The Outsiders," roles
that demand walking
the walk and talking the
talk. Myroup needed
more 18 and 19-year
olds with serious stage
experience to make this
show work.
Given the number of
theaters in the area,
including the Venice
main stage, it can be
challenging for directors
to find the right per-
formers at a given time.
That may have been the
case here.
The other problem
with this show on
opening night was the
excessive prompting
given to several young
actors who were either
suffering from stage
fright and forgot lines or
were inadequately
prepared. Hopefully,


they will settle into their
roles as the show
continues through May
17.
Donna Buckhalter's
set was interesting,
showcasing the drive-in
theater needed for the
first act, the home of the
greaser brothers and a
church. Sound design
was by Dorian Boyd and
Jaclyn Ledoux with
costumes by Jeannette
Rybicki and lighting by
John Michael Andzulis.


Venice Theatre is at
140 W. Tampa Ave., on
the island in downtown
Venice. "The Outsiders"
is in the Yvonne T.
Pinkerton Theatre, with
evening performances
at 7 p.m. Tuesday
through Saturday and
matinees on Saturday
and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $15 per
person. Order at
www.venicestage.com or

Stopping at Slim's Barbecue was the right decision


The day took a turn
for the worse as we
set out for Slim's
BBQ after wandering the
antique fair in Arcadia
for a couple of hours.
The car would simply
not start, but two sweet
ladies and a set of
jumper cables got us on
our way, and we decided
to chance a stop for the
advertised "Deep South
Bar-B-Q." It was the
right decision.
Slim's, a short hop
from the center of
Arcadia, just has the
right feel for a barbecue
place. The d6cor is

Combination Plate
($14.95) with the
possibility of three
different ones. From the
grilled salmon or mahi-
mahi 'surf' selection,
she took the server's
suggestion of the mahi
and, from the 'turf' list,
she decided against the
sliced pork, beef, and
turkey, and had the ribs.
He also wanted the ribs
along with his choice of
chicken and sliced beef.
Both dishes came with
garlic toast, and a choice
of cole slaw, baked
beans, steak fries, or
potato salad. He ordered
the baked sweet potato
($1.25 extra).
The entrees arrived
along with two barbecue


sauce dispensers, one
regular and the other
hot. They each got six
meaty, lean, and tasty
ribs. On his combo dish,
he found both the beef
and the chicken to be
just as smoky and tender
as barbecue should be.
He enjoyed the oak-
smoked flavor that was
not masked by sauce.
Side dishes were
uneven: dull garlic toast,
good cole slaw, and
outstanding potato
salad.
Two kitchen prepared
desserts, among the four
offered, appealed to us:
the Key Lime Pie ($3.95)
and the Kumquat Pie
($4.25). Both were
velvety concoctions with
no artificial coloring and

CJ,









Venice Theatre's 'Willy Wonka' production is yummy


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre's cos-
tume designer Nicholas
Hartman outdid himself in
clothing the cast of Roald
Dahl's charming musical,
"WillyWonka."
From the wiggle worm-
like creatures in the
opening scenes to the
Ooompa-Loompas, Willy
Wonka, and even the
grandparents who seem to
spend all their lives in bed,
Hartman's costumes
embellish the magical
story.
Transferring Wonka's
chocolate factory from film
to stage was no easy task
technically but Venice
Theatre volunteers rose to
the task of building Donna
Buckalter's wonderful set
and figuring out how to
make things work. Except
for a minor glitch here or
there on opening night,
this is a fun and entertain-
ing show for children of all
ages.
Director and choreogra-
pher Brad Wages then
stepped up to the plate,
selected a wonderful cast
of children and adults and
then brought out the best
of each and every one.
Longtime Venice Theatre
actor Scott Vitale showed
what he has learned over


his years on stage, in his
performance as Willy
Wonka, the man who
would find an heir to
continue the operation of
his chocolate factory.
Only one heir contestant
of five had the right stuff
and even the interest. The
others had parents and
personalities that turn this
delightful story into a
morality play of sorts while
also providing entertain-
ment value.
Charlie Bucket (Thomas
Junket) is that perfect kid,
charmingly played. With
the ensemble, his rendi-
tion of "The Candy Man"
was a treat. Francine
Smetts portrayed his hard-
working and kindly
In his first appearance
on the Venice stage,
Andrew Richardson, a
Sarasota eighth grader,
was right on the money as
Mike Teavee, a teenager
whose life revolves about
the TV set and the latest
video games. Always in
character, he was a
delight to watch. That
Richardson was newly
arrived from London
where he appeared at the
Royal Opera House is a
clue.

of the theater's associate
director Allan Kollar and

Facilities Manager and
super songstress Kim
Kollar, proved his talented
lineage in his portrayal of
Augustus Gloop, the
quintessential eating
machine/tubby kid. A fat
suit helped with the look.
Kollar's talent did the rest.
Cara Herman, who has a
flair for comedy, played
Mrs. Gloop and Grandma
Josephina. Steve Credeur
was the high-flying and
very funny Grandpa Joe.
Hayley Brielle Balliet
(Violet Beauregarde)
smacked her gum and
spoke with a Southern
accent so thick you could
cut it with a knife, as yet
another contender. This
one is pushed more by
her mother, played by
Hayley's real-life mother,
Denelle Balliet. There
were two other Balliets,
Kenzie Morgan and
Reese, in the ensemble.
Ally Tufenkjian played
the quintessential brat,
Verucca Salt, who gets
everything she wants
from her father who was
played by Neil Kasanof-
sky. Kasanofksy also
portrayed Grandpa
George, Just about totally
deaf, his antics added to
the show's fun quotient.
Grandma Georgina was
played by Nina
