Council softening



stance on hangars

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council held a
special meeting Tuesday
morning to discuss the latest
legal opinion, from Icard Mer-
rill of Sarasota, on the validity
of the Venice Jet Center lease.
Council took no action, but
nearly all the members favored
avoiding another lawsuit.
"We have our own interest
in protecting taxpayer dollars,"
said Mayor Ed Martin. "It's
clear if the city wants to litigate
issues, we can fight (through)
other legal actions. It's also
clear we have some steps that
could avoid that.
"I have a hunch if we were
to approve (the hangars),

probably (receiver) Mr. (Bur-
ton) Wiand and the Part 16
(Federal Aviation Administra-
tion investigation) would go
away," and council would still
have the ability to require the
lessee to mitigate the noise
and pollution created by traffic
using the hangars, Martin said.
If the city denies the permit
to build the hangars, said
Council John Moore, "(we) will
certainly run the risk of litiga-
tion either through the FAA or
the lessee. That might not hap-
pen. (But) certainly we do run
that risk and all the costs atten-
dant with that."
"I'd be willing to go to court
over Section 45," said Council

Moore: Attorneys

'failed to protect me'


Mugs: Moore, Anderson
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Seeking to put the Sunshine
lawsuit behind him and clear his
name, Coun-
cil Member
John Moore
made an im-
passioned
plea Tuesday
before the city
council to
pay his pri-
vate attorney
fees related to Moore
the case.
The case was settled in
March when the city agreed to
plead guilty to violations of the
Sunshine law and public rec-
ords law in return for dropping
the individually named defen-
dants, including Moore, who
was dismissed so he could be
part of a council quroum and
approve the deal. A hearing
has been set for Sept. 14-15 to


determine how much the city
will pay toward plaintiff
Anthony Lorenzo's fees and
costs.
Moore, Council Member
John Simmonds and former
airport board
member Paul
Hollowell sub-
mitted their
bills for attor-
ney fees, but
City Attorney
Bob Ander-
son has said
paying the
Anderson bills before
the final hear-
ing on attorney fees will inflate
the cost to the city.
Moore, a former judge, said
that's not the case, citing a
Second District Court of Ap-
peal case holding that "the fees
of a prevailing party cannot be
predicated upon the fees of
one's opponent."

Foreclosure judgment against Renaissance


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


A final judgment of foreclosure on the pro-
posed Renaissance retail center in Laurel was
filed last week in the 12th Circuit Court against
Waterford Construction Company, Waterford at
Laurel Park North, L.L.C. and Mike Miller.
Orion Bank foreclosed on its loan of $25.1
million. The judgment accrues 8 percent inter-
est until payment is made. The property will be
sold on June 16 if the full amount is not paid.
Renaissance was to have been developed as a
200,000-square-foot retail center with parking
on a 22.1-acre site at the intersection of Laurel


Road and Knights Trail. A single-tenant retail
building and future outparcel development
were proposed as part of a larger project that
included a lift station connected to water and
sewer systems.
Attorneys for the bank said that Orion is not
interested in taking the property.
Venice City Council had approved the pro-
posal in August 2008, after it had been rejected
by the planning commission 10 months earlier.
The case was heard before Judge Charles Wil-
liams, who last month presided over Orion's
$35.5 million foreclosure suit against the Vil-
lages of Manasota Beach, a proposed residential
development.

Blackburn Point

Swing Bridge closed

for the next month


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY


The Blackburn Point
Swing Bridge was closed
to traffic at 8 a.m. Tues-
day, May 26, so repairs
can be made to the 83-
year-old bridge. The clo-
sure is expected to last
about a month.
Traffic to and from
Casey Key will be
detoured south to the
Albee Road Swing
Bridge. Boat traffic will
not be affected.
Under the $483,874
contract awarded to
Infrastructure Corp. of
America, mechanical


improvements to the
142-foot-long span will
include replacing the
bridge center pivot bear-
ing and drive mecha-
nism, the rack and pin-
ion, drive train and wheel
assembly.
To alert motorists to
the closure, message
boards were installed
on all major roadways
leading to the bridge,
including U.S. 41, State
Road 681, Laurel Road
and Casey Key Road.
Fire and emergency
services crews and
equipment will be sta-
tioned on Casey Key
during the closure.

City questions attorney fees in mediation case


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Developers of the proposed Discov-
eryVillage atVenice agreed in March to
drop a property-rights claim of $7.9
million if the city would adopt a new
zoning designation for the planned
upscale retirement community, which
it did.
But Discovery Village insisted on a
last-minute stipulation that the city
reimburse it for the planning, design
and other costs it incurred through the
mediation session that resulted in the
compromise.
On April 16 attorneys for Discovery
Venice named the amount: $152,399.
Two-thirds of the amount is for attor-
ney's fees.
And in the letter to CityAttorney Bob
Anderson, Keith Bricklemyer said the


amount "does not include my client's
costs to carry the property or his lost
return in investment over the time it
took to resolve this matter, the combi-
nation of which exceeds $1.02 million."
Legal fees and costs totaled $101,732
for four attorneys who participated in
DiscoveryVillage's case before a media-
tor when it appealed a Venice City
Council decision to unilaterally reduce
the property's density prior to adopting
a new comprehensive plan and new
land-use regulations.
The remaining $50,000-plus is for
architectural and engineering fees.
Anderson wrote back to Bricklemyer
last month asking on what legal
authority he claims "that the property
owners are entitled to reimbursement
or attorney fees under the Florida Land
Use and Environmental Dispute
Resolution Act."


The law is commonly known as the
Bert Harris Act.
No word on yet on Bricklemyer's
response or when the payment of attor-
ney and other fees for the Discovery
Village case will appear before city
council. The new zoning designation
for the project went before council on
first reading Tuesday, with final reading
scheduled for June 9.
It was the first-ever notice of a Bert
Harris claim filed against the city.
Discovery Village LLC, which plans
on building a high-end, active-senior
condominium community called The
Village on Venice on the north side of
Hatchett Creek Boulevard just east of
Pinebrook Road, filed notice of its
intent to sue the city in a letter on
March 11.
It's seeking redress for council's
action that reduced density from 9.6


units to 7 units per acre because of per-
ceived transportation problems. The
rezone took place Oct. 23, 2007.
The amount noticed in the claim is
for $7.9 million in lost market value due
to the reduced density.

Corrections
William E. Maddox, principal
architect with The Maddox Group
in Sarasota, was incorrectly named
in a May 23 story about the expan-
sion of Venice Christian School.
The editorial cartoon in the May
23 edition omitted a reference to
American military personnel who
died in the Korean War.
The Gondolier Sun regrets the
errors.


STANCE from Page 1A
Member Ernie Zavodnyik, re-
ferring to unclear language in
the contract that refers to
improvements but doesn't
specify additional hangars
over and above those already
replaced. But, he said, "We
aren't there yet. ... (W)e need
to obviate getting ourselves
into more lawsuits."
Zavodnyik said there are
still steps along the way that
could allow the city to "rigor-
ously challenge" what is ulti-
mately built.

Nonservice
Moore made it clear that he
felt neither Anderson nor Dale
Scott, the attorney hired by the
city's insurer, protected his
interests.
Moore wasn't named as a
defendant when the original
lawsuit was filed in May 2008.
On June 3, 2008 however, he
was added to the suit while va-
cationing in Alaska. He had yet
to be officially served, yet at a
June 11, 2008 hearing the
judge entered a temporary
injunction requiring he turn
over his and his wife's personal
computers. Moore blamed the
attorneys for not catching the
"nonservice."
"For reasons I do not under-
stand, the attorneys failed to
represent me or raise a funda-
mental issue with respect to
me that I had not been
served with the lawsuit," he
said.
"Mr. Anderson has made it
absolutely clear that he did not
and does not represent me,"
Moore said, even though


ing agreements the city isn't
lawfully allowed to sign, Coun-
cil Member Kit McKeon said
the city is at a disadvantage in
its bid to purchase the jet cen-
ter and won't likely be able to
participate in a planned auc-
tion.
"That train has left the sta-
tion," he said. When it's finally
sold, "I would hope (the new
owner) would want to be a
good neighbor and not butt
heads with us on a daily basis."
Council Member Sue Lang
saw the situation differently,
and encouraged council to
continue to oppose the con-


Anderson filed and argued
motions on behalf of Martin
and former council member
Rick Tacy at the June 11 meet-
ing.
"If Mr. Anderson did not
represent me, he was in no
position to agree to anything
with respect to me personally,"
Moore said. "...(H)e commit-
ted me (and my wife, a non-
party) to a path with which I
strongly disagreed," he said,
referring to the seized comput-
ers.
'No choice'
If Anderson didn't represent
him, Moore said, Scott "failed"
to represent him. Moore said
Scott "failed to represent me or
even take any minimal steps to
protect my interests."
He said Scott had a conflict
of interest in representing all
the co-defendants, who num-
bered 10 individuals at one
point.
"I have always wanted my
day in court to clear my name,
and that is why my attorney


struction of new hangars by
the jet center.
"I believe this opinion gives
us good reason to deny con-
struction of these hangars at
this time," Lang said. "Per-
sonally, I think it would be
foolish for the receiver to
squander (their) assets chasing
down a complaint to build
hangars when he stated on the
record he has no intent what-
soever to build these hangars."
Council Member Vicki Nor-
en Taylor did not attend the
meeting.
Speaking on behalf of Wi-
and, Venice attorney Dan


Boone said the city had little
chance of winning a legal bat-
tle over the issue.
"What would be the city's
chance of winning?" said
Boone, who helped draw up
the original 25-year lease with
the jet center. "I am going to
predict Mr. Bartlett's decision
(gives) the city a 98 percent
chance to lose and 2 percent
chance to win. That's the way I
read this opinion."
Martin is still holding out
hope for a positive outcome
for the city. He said the city
might lose on the issue of
building hangars, but might be

hearing will even be held in September." \lt
could be another year before this issue is
decided. Any further delay in the payment of
these attorney's fees is an unacceptable,
unreasonable and unfair to the individual
defendants who have either been dismissed
or dropped from the case."
Venice City Council Member John Moore in
making his plea to city council to pay his private
attorney's fees for representing him in
the Sunshine law suit


filed a motion to expedite and
set a trial date on my behalf,"
he said. "Other defendants,
represented by Dale Scott,


actively opposed that request.
"How could Dale Scott
abide by my directive to have
my day in court at the first pos-


able to match any offer on the
property. Even if that's not suc-
cessful, the city might be able
to strike a deal, he said, to trade
some land elsewhere on air-
port property.
"We'll pay to move it over
there," Martin speculated. "We
won't solve the question of
how many airplanes, but we
will ameliorate noise and pol-
lution.
"The bottom line for me is I
do want to take a course of
action that seems to have the
least downside."

sible moment when his other
clients provided contrary di-
rection?
"They are the ones who
made the decision not to rep-
resent me, which left me no
choice but to retain my own
attorney in this case."
Moore said he wants the
attorney fees paid now.
"There is no assurance that
the evidentiary hearing will
even be held in September," he
said. "It could be another year
before this issue is decided.
Any further delay in the pay-
ment of these attorney's fees is
an unacceptable, unreason-
able and unfair to the individ-
ual defendants who have
either been dismissed or
dropped from the case."
Moore and Anderson
agreed to disagree over the
issue, leaving it in the hands of
council, which will discuss on
June 9 how to proceed.

County committee helps

small enterprises


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Mom-and-pop businesses seeking
to expand their facilities can escape
deal killers with help from the Sarasota
County Development Review Com-
mittee.
For $385, a business owner can have
at least 13 county staff experts review
plans and point out areas of concern,
some of which could be too costly for
the applicant's budget "deal killers,"
according to Mary Stephens, who
chairs the county DRC. That comes out
to about $29.62 per hour per expert.
The DRC review is ideal for people
evaluating a projects before they start
or before agreements are signed, she
said.
The review is strictly voluntary for
applicants, Stephens said.
"It helps the little guy out; it's a good
deal," she said.
There is one drawback, Stephens
said: "The mom-and-pops don't know
we're here."
To participate in the program, an ap-
plicant fills out a form that asks, in
addition to the names and contact
information of the project owners and
applicants, what type of project it is,
and its intended use, location and size.
A conceptual drawing accompanies the
application, and it's on to the county
experts for review.
Experts come from the customary
areas of land development, fire preven-
tion, water resources, utilities, and
planning and zoning. However, a repre-
sentative of the county historical center
might discover a historic midden, or a
tree protection specialist might point

Bishop's new company
Brian C. Bishop, who founded Home
Front Inc. and invented the Home
Front Panelized Construction System,
is offering an improved panelized con-
struction system through his new com-
pany, New Panel Homes Inc.
Panelized construction uses struc-
tural insulated panels for the walls and
roof of a building instead of the tradi-
tional studs and plywood, allowing for
easier and faster construction, extract-
ing a lower toll on the environment and
providing much better energy perfor-
mance than "stick-built" methods.

out the need to have one tree for every
2,000 square feet of the project. Land-
scaping suggestions come from anoth-
er specialist.
Environmental health, resources
protection, design standards and traffic
operations round out the usual list of
experts. Depending on the project,
other experts could be called upon.
A meeting of the DRC, usually held
at county Building D at 1301 Cattlemen
Road, tends to be a nonadversarial; the
DRC's mission is to help businesses
grow.
Marcia R. Collins, who wants to
build a new day-care center on Sara-
gossa Lane in Warm Mineral Springs,
came before the board last month.
"That's the best $385 I've ever spent,"
she said, as she got up from her seat fol-
lowing her review.
"They were very polite," she said
recently of the experience.
Collins received a tip from Sarasota
Fire Marshal Rick Fulwider that could
save her about $8,000 in retrofitting
costs. Collins said she wants to pur-
chase modular units for her site.
Fulwider told her that she needs to
have information in each unit to certify
the unit meets current state standards.
The fire marshal's cost-saving advice
was just one of many tips she received
at the meeting and in the review report.
"I was really happy with the results,"
Collins said. "I would have spent more
money on things (that I didn't need)."
To have a proposed project evaluat-
ed by the Sarasota County Develop-
ment Review Committee, call Mary
Stephens at 861-6576. Application
packages also can be obtained online at

Front Homes LLC. The Bishops are not
affiliated with Home Front Homes LLC.

PGT donates windows
PGT Industries donated surplus
product to the World Vision Storehouse
in support of children and families in

among other donated building prod-
ucts, were used to rebuild the home of a
West Virginia family, the Boylards, after
it was destroyed by fire.
"PGT is proud to partner with World

Debbie LaPinska, PGT vice president of
sales and marketing. "We as a company
believe in helping improve the commu-
nities and lives of community mem-
bers where our products are sold."

TIM PARADISE
REAL ESTATE
COLUMNIST


Many of today's real
estate lookers don't care
where they buy right now
as long as they purchase
"the bargain." Hello -
our Venice area is "the
bargain."
Do not measure value
by just price alone. This
community is still head
and shoulders above
most in the sunshine
state, a fact that should
be reflected in a quicker
recovery of future prop-
erty values.
Buyers are gobbling
up distressed properties
throughout Florida at a
lickity-split pace, taking
advantage of pricing not
seen in recent years.
Shrewd shoppers should
have all their ducks in a
row before attempting to
enter this frenzied real
estate environment.

gone through a process

Cafe Z opens
Expanding her busi-

moved from the Espresso
Room on the island to

Bypass.
"I made many cus-

years operating the nice,
small business on the
island," she said.


that transfers ownership
(usually in foreclosure
the bank becomes the
owner), the potential
terms and conditions of
any future sale from the
bank will, most likely, dif-
fer from the ordinary.
With proper preparation,
those differences can be
slanted toward a buyer
advantage.
Keep in mind that it is
not cost effective for
banks to hold title to
property for any length of
time, but they do want to
control certain aspects of
their selling process
while disposing of their
real estate. The bank as a
seller will usually ask for
the following of a buyer:
1. Offers to be written
on the bank's preferred
contract form.
2. Written proof of the
buyer's available funds to
purchase.
3. Designation of where
escrow funds are to be
held.
4. Selection of title in-
surance and closing
agent.
For these concessions,
a buyer may be granted
some of the following
perks by the selling bank:
1. The bank pays for
the property title insur-
ance and associated ex-
penses.
2. The bank may, if
requested, make repairs

In her new cafe, she

offers a variety of coffee,
sodas and ice creams.
Customers can dine in or

the lion's share of the
buyer's usual closing
costs.
4. Financing terms to a
qualified buyer.
Cash is king now, so if
you have the ability and
the wherewithal to move
forward rapidly and with
few restrictions, your
chance of purchasing
"the bargain" is greatly
enhanced.
Much of the bank-
owned property will have
more than one interested
party at the same time,
making it very important
to sharpen your pencil
and make the best and
final offer to put you a leg
up on any competing
potential buyers.
The three reasons to
buy foreclosed property
in the Venice area now
are:
1. Mortgage interest
rates are at a historic low
and are unlikely to drop
further.
2. This community it-
self still has much more
to offer than most Florida
cities.
3. Pricing, pricing,
pricing never better,
perhaps never again.

No Derby, not even jockey shorts


Horse sense. I think it's too bad that on Derby Day
the Gondolier Sun cannot print anything about the
Derby, or who's running in the Derby, for the people
who are here from Kentucky. This one of the biggest
things going on, one of the biggest races in the world,
and the Gondolier Sun cannot even print anything
about it, especially who is running. I think your paper
is yuck, and I'm going to quit taking it.
EDITOR'S NOTE: As a community paper, we don't cover
any national events, sporting or otherwise. We don't even
cover the Super Bowl when it's played up the road in
Tampa.


Leave it alone. I'd like
to comment on the sep-
tic systems in Venice. I
just can't believe our
elected officials could be
that blind as to what's
going on, with the econo-
my here. First of all,
there's too many com-
missioners. There should
only be two or three. The
area's not growing any-
more. And the point
about sewers who can
afford that now? If I had
sewers in my house, I
would have to move out
of my house and move to
a mobile home park. I
can't afford it now and in
three or four years from
now, I won't be able to
afford it either.
They should have put
sewers in when the hous-
es were being built. That's
too much money for a
sewer. They're going to
have to go with the septic
system and leave it alone.
Sound of silence. I
called Let'em Have It to
say something about our
city council. My mother
taught me that if I could-
n't say anything good
about a person, I should
just keep my mouth shut
so I guess there will have
to be a moment of
silence for our council
members.
Unfeeling. I'm calling
in reference to the sur-
gery center closing in the
Venice Healthpark. I
think it's totally outra-
geous that doctors, who


are responsible to the cit-
izens of the community
that they serve, all of a
sudden abruptly close up
the premises and just
walk away.
I think an investiga-
tion should be done fur-
ther exposing who these
doctors are and if they're
still practicing in this
area. I personally would
not want to go to these
doctors, who have no
compassion or feeling for
not only their patients,
but their employees.
Calling collect. I just
want to let everyone
know that from now on if
you're collecting unem-
ployment, you no longer
have to prove that you're
out looking for a job. I
work every day, I pay my
taxes, do everything I'm
supposed to do and I
knowpeople who are col-
lecting unemployment in
Florida.
They don't have to
prove that they are look-
ing for a job, they just col-
lect the money. They've


moved out of state,
bought new cars, work
under the table if they
want to, but you no
longer have to prove that
you're looking for a job.
So that's why unemploy-
ment is so high. And if
you stop paying for your
house, you can still live in
it for over a year, it's been
over a year that my
friends have lived in
theirs and not made a
payment. So live for free
everybody; collect unem-
ployment and stop pay-
ing on your house. Let
the taxpayers' pickup the
bill.
Another option. I
would like the 90-year-
old woman to know that
she can get Metoprol, a
generic for Toprol. She
should be able to get that
from her doctor as a
generic. It's cheaper. I
think she just has to take
it twice a day instead of
once a day. I hope that
helps.
Hot flash. No, I'm not
worried about the swine
flu, but I am worried
about people and their
global-warming panic. I
appreciate the letter you
printed from the man
from Nokomis. I am
proud of what he's say-
ing, and I believe that it's
a hoax and that it's being
played upon us just for
more money.
In agreement. I totally
agree with the editorial

that the city should put
the people's interests first
at this time. I think it's
disingenuous of John
Moore to ask for pay-
ment of his legal fees. As
a former lawyer and
judge, he is well aware of
what the laws are and
what the liability is for
breaking them.
I know he has not
been convicted, nor has
he pleaded guilty; but by
his acts of ignorance, he
sure has obligated him-
self to a significant ex-
pense.
To ask the city to pay
for it up front is ludi-
crous. I think he should
wait until September and
see how it comes out at
that time.
Between him and Sue
Lang, I don't know which
is a bigger embarrass-
ment to the city.
Untrimmed. My ques-


tion is, who is responsi-
ble for trimming the trees
on Albee Farm Road?
We're snowbirds and
during the 18 years we've
been in this area in the
winter, those trees have
never been trimmed. In
wind storms and bad
weather, those palms are
blowing and could kill a
biker or dent a car, plus it
looks terrible. It's at the
entrance to Bird Bay
where we live. I'm just
surprised thatVenice isn't
more up on trimming
trees. I've noticed other
areas as well, but this is a
definite problem, all the
way down Albee Farm
Road. It would be nice if
someone would just
drive down sometime
and see how ugly those
could-be-beautiful trees
are. They're a hazard.
Please do something
about it.

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR
BOB MUDGE

OUR VIEW



In Florida, the (tax) climate is beautiful


Recent efforts in some northern
states to "soak the rich" in order
to plug leaking state budgets
could end up helping Florida keep its
state budget afloat.
Writing in the Wall Street Journal
last week, economist Arthur Laffer -
he of the famous supply-side Laffer
curve and journalist Stephen
Moore note that a number of north-
ern states have raised or are starting
to raise income tax rates on the top 1-
5 percent of residents.
In Illinois, the new governor wants
a 50-percent hike in the highest tax
rate to close the budget shortfall.
In New York, legislators approved
two new income tax brackets that
could bring in another $4 billion from
wealthy taxpayers those making
more than $500,000 a year. The state
also eliminated tax credits for the rich
on items like charitable donations,


further adding to the top tax burden.
Laffer and Moore are against it.
"Here's the problem for states that
want to pry more money out of the
wallets of rich people," they wrote. "It
never works because people, invest-
ment capital and businesses are mo-
bile: They can leave tax-unfriendly
states and move to tax-friendly
states."
Like Florida.
With all respect to Laffer and
Moore, we say: Bring it on.
The higher the tax rates in states
like New York, New Jersey, Connec-
ticut, Delaware and Massachusetts,
the more Florida stands to gain with
an influx of new, well-to-do residents
looking to remain so.
With our incredibly low real estate
values and great housing deals,
Florida will begin to look all the more
attractive our rich relations to the


north. The higher that taxes are raised
in the Garden State, the more people
will look favorably on the Sunshine
State. This simple matter of wealth
preservation has historically worked
in our favor.
It could mean a new influx of re-
tirees and part-timers looking to
establish a Florida residence. It could
extend to those people who aren't tied
geographically to an office, but those
who work primarily over the Internet.
One case in point is that of Tom
Golisano, a former New York guber-
natorial candidate, owner of the Buf-
falo Sabres hockey team and the
founder of the Paychex electronic
payroll-processing company, based
in Rochester, N.Y
Golisano told the New York Post
that the state's new "millionaire's tax"
boosted his state income tax bill from
$4 million to $5 million annually. He


claimed he wanted to stay in New
York, but "economically, it makes so
much sense to leave it." In fact, New
York Gov. David Patterson had pre-
dicted last year the "superwealthy"
would bail if the higher tax passed.
Where did Golisano end up?
Naples, Fla.
With his new residence, Golisano
loses a $5 million state tax bill and
gains some thankful new neighbors.
We don't really know if Laffer and
Moore are correct in their analysis
about marginal tax rates and eco-
nomic growth in states with income
taxes. For our purposes, it doesn't
really matter. What counts is what
people in those states think.
And when the highly mobile top-
earners think they are getting hosed,
more and more will start looking for a
safe haven.
Welcome to Florida.


Taking action


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


When he took office,
Sheriff Tom Knight
wanted to get a clear pic-
ture of where the depart-
ment stood. While he
could have tried to do it
himself which would
have taken a very long
time he did something
that I rarely see govern-
ment officials doing. He
brought in many experts
- many more expert
than he in some areas -
to discover the strengths
and weaknesses of the
sheriff's department.
From their work, a docu-
ment was produced out-
lining many recommen-
dations for change.
One of the most point-
ed observations was that
the department had ex-
cess management. Un-
der the previous admin-
istration the higher levels
had got bloated. The
report recommended
having three majors in-
stead of four, and accom-
plishing that by a restruc-
turing. There were 11
captains; the report rec-
ommended nine or few-
er. It also concluded that
some positions, like
communication director,
that were filled by a cap-
tain should be filled by a
lower-ranking person.
Another organization-
al recommendation was
to go from three patrol
zones to two, north and
south, with a head of
patrol operations over all
of them rather than a
captain over each zone.
In some cases the
experts suggested giving
jobs to civilians instead
of sworn officers. For
instance, the finance offi-
cer was a high-ranking
officer but they said it
would be better to have a
civilian with that train-
ing. Tom made that
change, finding a profes-
sional finance director
who had been finance
director in another coun-
ty in Florida.
The panel also recom-
mended that the job of
running the Police Ath-
letic League could also be
handled by a civilian.
The corrections divi-
sion was looked at, with
similar problems and
recommendations iden-


tified.
Many of these recom-
mendations were a part
of Tom's campaign, but
there were issues more
than he thought.
While it might sound
like the department had
way too many people,
that just was not the case.
The report showed that
the department has the
fewest sworn officers per
thousand population -
1.08 overall (1.7 in the
unincorporated area) -
of any county in the state
and well below the ac-
cepted standard of 2.0.
The report showed the
city of Sarasota, for in-
stance, is at 3.48, while
Venice is at 2.12 and
Manatee County 1.24.
The department has
been handling about
100,000 calls for service a
year.
Tom feels that many of
the higher-paid positions
need to get back into the
patrol area to help put
the people where they
are needed most.
There are many more
recommendations in the
report, from uniforms, to
how to handle specialty
pay, to overtime that can
be reduced and things
like training. It recom-
mended a bigger empha-
sis on DUI patrols and
has a lot of recommenda-
tions for the jail.
It is refreshing to see a
department head going
outside to be analyzed
and not afraid to see the
good and the bad. We
need this kind of action a
lot more in government if
we are going to be as
strong as we want to be.
Congrats to Tom
Knight.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


New names not the answer


Editor:
Due to an error, 9-1-1 operators sent emergency
responders to a home with the same street name in a
different town. It was very tragic.
To fix this problem, the county is considering
changing street names that are alike. There will be no
more errors if a street name is used only once
throughout Sarasota County.
We live on Main Street in Osprey It was platted
more than 100 years ago, before Sarasota was even a
county. We would imagine that downtown Sarasota
would have to find a new name for its Main Street.
But what about Pine Avenue, Pine Street, Pine Run,
Pine Ranch, Pine Ranch East, Pine Way, Pine Valley,
Pine Crest, Old Pine, Pine Meadow Lane, Pine
Meadow Terrace, Pine Terrace, Pine Bay, Pine Harrier,
Pineneedle, Pine View, Pine Gardens, Pinehurst,
Pinegrove, Pine Glen, Pine Pointe and Pinecone
Street? All these names could be confusing in a panic.
Which town gets to keep the "original" and which has
to change?
There was a tragic incident and a woman died.
Instead of admitting there was an error, we are blam-
ing the problem on the name of the street. If we spend
hundreds of thousands of dollars changing street
names throughout the county, errors will still be
made. After all, 9-1-1 operators are only human.
Please leave our street names alone, and spend the
time and money training our emergency workers if
needed. This is not how we should be spending our
time and money in these tough economic times.

Studies bought
and paid for
Editor:
In response to the
rightward tilt of this
newspaper, often repre-
sented in the Letters sec-
tion, I refer particularly to
two such letters appear-
ing in the May 4 issue,
one calling climate
change a hoax and the
other describing those
who question the Star
Wars missile defense
program as drinking "lib-
eral Kool-Aid."
Both could have taken
their talking points
straight from the George
Marshall Institute, origi-
nally founded to support


Ronald Reagan's Star
Wars program but since
broadened to include
systematic negation of
the overwhelming scien-
tific evidence that hu-
man activity contributes
to global warming. This
institute is heavily sup-
ported by the petroleum
industry and a host of
conservative founda-
tions.
The letter writer cites
scientist Willie Soon, se-
nior scientist at the insti-
tute and a key member of
Frontiers of Freedom's
Center for Science and
Public Policy, set up after
a $100,000 grant in 2002
from a major oil compa-


ny. Another paper co-
authored by Dr. Soon in
2003, published in the
Climate Research jour-
nal, was partly funded by
the American Petroleum
Institute.
When scientists pro-
mote a particular view-
point, it is always wise to
check the funding for
their research and publi-
cations. The Internation-
al Panel on Climate
Change has been study-
ing Earth's changing cli-
mate for decades and
any check of its work will
see reams of scientific
data that vastly outweigh
the results cited by skep-
tics.
Willie Soon may have
a Ph.D., but IPCC pan-
elists have scientific cre-
dentials that go far
beyond those of the few
who question the reality
of climate change's caus-
es.

One possible future for Venice's downtown


BY DAVID N. MACRAE
GUEST COLUMNIST

Venice's downtown retail
district is one of the Sarasota
County's unique assets. The
only other retail area with a
central park is St. Armands
Circle, which is much smaller
than our park.
Venice's historical master
plan demonstrates a vision to
be enhanced by the continued
thoughtful development of
this area. The city of Venice
cannot pay for this, based on
budget constraints in place.
Therefore, business and prop-
erty owners need to work with
the city to develop a plan.
My vision is to restructure
the central parking area into a
true Venice Central Park. This
would require relocating and
increasing parking. The park
would be landscaped and a
pond installed to make it a true
central park, with no parking
within this space. In addition,
sidewalks would be replaced
with pavers to bring Venice in
line with the Venetian theme.
This would increase the
appeal of Venice to both local
residents and tourists, making
it a regional destination. This
would aid local merchants and
property owners by increased
visitors.
Of course, one can argue
the opposite as well: that this


would just bring more un-
wanted traffic. But a central
park in Venice could provide
better locations for events and
still provide parking through
the addition of discreet parking
garages. A central park would
also benefit the merchants on
Tampa Avenue and other
streets within the special dis-
trict by making the Venice retail
district a true town square.
There are many arguments
on both sides of this proposal.
Let's first start with the ques-
tion of who pays. The idea is to
create aVenice Historical Cen-
tral Park special taxing district
that would be paid for through
increased property taxes by
property owners and by ten-
ants where tax pass-through
occurs, which is the majority of
the lease arrangements. The
VHCP would be funded solely
through the taxing district.
The city of Venice would be
asked to float a bond that
would be repaid over 10 years
by the taxing district. Property
owners within the district and
tenants would see an annual
increase in property tax strictly
to repay this bond. The tenants
and property owners would
have to measure the impact of
this increase, as it may affect
their business and property
values.
It would require the issu-
ance of a $10 million bond by


the city, for these estimated ex-
penditures:
Paver sidewalks $1 mil-
lion
Redevelop central park -
$1 million
Land for parking garages
- $3 million
300-space garage(s) $5
million
Administrative fees and
advertising $400,000
Repayment would be about
$1.275 million per year over
the 10-year period, assuming
interest at 4 percent.
Assuming there are 500,000
square feet of retail space and
the potential for an additional
300,000 (the post office and
Bank of America are larger
examples), this translates into
an annual tax increase of $3.95
per year per square foot at
500,000 square feet to $1.89
per square foot based on the
total potential square feet.
These numbers are rough esti-
mates.
Assuming the average space
is 2,200 square feet, the annual
increase would be about $366-
$400 per month, requiring
about $750 in increased sales
per store.
Local lease rates depend on
the lease, but new lease space
tends to be in the $19-per-
square-foot range on Venice
Avenue and less in surround-
ing areas. This compares to $70


per square foot in St. Armands
and $35-$39 for Main Street
Sarasota.
Many merchants are con-
cerned about retail business in
Venice based first on the econ-
omy but second on the num-
ber of store turnovers and
empty spaces and a lack of
amenities. Many consumers
within the Venice market drive
to Sarasota to shop, dine and
socialize based on the lack of
amenities and quality experi-
ences.
There is also the concern
that the "no growth" view
dominates the community
and that new initiatives are not
probable for success. Any con-
cept must be vetted, but a
community should accommo-
date all views, including mer-
chants, to be a stable cohesive
unit.
Once major issue would be
the garage where it would
be located and how it would
look. Let's start with appear-
ances.
Today design concepts for
larger buildings can soften the
impact. This can be witnessed
in modern boat storage units
and garages.
What locations could be
considered? Here are a few:
The park behind Summer-
ville it can accommodate
church overflow on Sundays
and the property is already city


owned.
Behind the Venice Theatre
- good access to downtown
and improved theater parking
at night; Venice retail is busy
during the day.
Bank of America.
The post office relocate
the sorting facility off of the
island and the city could build
a garage and small post office
on the site.
The parking lot between
Althea's and Comcast.
Multiple sites may be the
best solution.
This plan would increase
the tax rate for property own-
ers downtown and increase
traffic in the area. Moving
parking will be advantageous
for certain retailers and detri-
mental to others.
But an improved venue for
events, with increased parking
capacity that you don't lose
when events occur, will attract
more merchants, leading to
better and increased services
- more local restaurants and
shops, with less driving for
locals. That would mean an
increase in visitors, resulting in
an increased tax base, higher
sales tax collections and in-
creased property values over
time.

$2.8 million in scholarships of
all kinds at Venice High's awards
night this week. If you include
Bright Futures money from the
state, VHS students received
more than $5 million in aid.
A total of 147 students got 340
awards, the most in history. The
Rotary Futures program there
has been a big reason for that
because of the wonderful com-
munity support it gets.

Today's Ism (a sign at a hotel):
We need inn-experienced peo-
ple.

Someone told me that if you
combine the names Ed (as in
Mayor Ed Martin) and Sue as in
(Sue Lang) you get "sued,"
which to this person seemed
appropriate.
******
It is sad to me that members
of the Venice Neighborhoods
Coalition, led by Gary Budway,
do not want a performing arts


hall. The rationale is that it is a
waste of taxpayer money that
could go to roads.
While I agree it is probably
wise to put it off a year or two, it
is unwise to miss this opportu-
nity.
Performing arts halls are
expensive, for sure. The only
way to make them work is to
combine uses with joint ten-
ants, like the city and the school
district here. That way neither
foots the whole bill and the facil-
ity gets maximum usage by the
school and the community.
We forever gripe that we
build too many government
things and should share facili-
ties; this is one great opportuni-
ty to change that waste. Unless
someone has $20 million, a
stand-alone facility will not hap-
pen.
Don't pass up a great chance.
North Port did it, and I would
hate to say that city could do it
and we couldn't.


Someone told me that

if you combine the

names Ed (as in Mayor
Ed Martin) and Sue as

in (Sue Lang) you get
"sued," which to this

person seemed appro-

priate."


I wonder about a similar
facility being built on the Riv-
erview campus. Did the school
district pay for all of that one?
******
As the comp plan process
winds down, the arguments are
flying fast and hard for getting
some exceptions to height limits
in the document.
In one article I saw that 42
feet might not be enough for a
two-story building, let alone


three stories. The height limit for
most of our city's years has been
35 feet. In recent years, however,
somehow storage of cars was
added, almost like those feet
didn't count.
Yes, I do think there needs to
be a way that special features
that would exceed the height
limit maybe a clock tower,
elevator shaft or roof adorn-
ment could be included, but
other than that 42 feet works.
The Gondolier Sun, under the
35-foot rule, asked for an excep-
tion so we could put a barrel-tile
roof mansard to keep the air
conditioners out of sight and
meet the architectural theme.
We ended up less than 40 feet
with that exception.
We need a little more descrip-
tion of what is allowed, but not
three stories that can equal 60
feet.

COLUMNIST


Don't flounder

around,

go artificial

at the beach

Do you enjoy catching fish
on artificial? Do you also
enjoy getting home well
before noon?
Then go to any part of the
beach from Caspersen to
Nokomis early in the morn-
ing. Here is what they are
catching: trout, snook, floun-
der, jacks and Spanish mack-
erel.
Forget live bait, just buy a
few D.O.A. night-glow shrimp
and a few soft baits. If you
have never used a D.O.A.
before, talk to one of the
experienced fishermen on
the beach as most if not all
of them will be glad to show
you.
First, don't throw it way
out, as the majority of the fish
are within 10 to14 feet off the
beach. According to Andy
Schoener, work the night-
glow as if it were alive.
The other morning
Schoener caught between
seven and nine trout, two
flounder and a few other
species. While fishingVenice
Beach, Marvin, my fish spot-
ter on the beach, also did
quite well. For more than one
hour the mackerel were thick
and he had one on his line
just about every cast. In fact,
sometimes he had three or
four hits on the same cast. He
only stayed one hour, so who
knows how long the macs
stayed there.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, we'll talk again next
week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at

The rain and lightning at the
end of the first half did more
than delay the start of Venice's
second half in the annual
Spring Classic on Saturday
night at Powell-Davis Stadium.
It also seemed to take the
steam out of the Indians as
Venice failed to score in the
second half and Naples scored
18 unanswered second-half
points to pull out a come-from-
behind 25-18 victory.
"We made plays but just
didn't finish the deal," Venice
coach John Peacock said. "We
are going to be all right. There
were a lot of questions
answered tonight. We worked
on some things and I saw
some great things."
"The first half we kind of
worked off a script," Naples
coach Bill Kramer said. "The
second half we kind of saw


what we were getting and I
think we were a little more
effective with the play calling
and kids executed for sure. We
came out after the half with
where we wanted to attack
and how I wanted to do it on
offense and defense."
At halftime, Venice led 18-7
but Naples scored a touch-
down in the third quarter and
took the lead in the fourth
quarter with 10 more points to
grab a 25-18 lead.
The Indians still had a
chance as quarterback Trey
Burton connected on a 58-
yard strike to Josh Boyle down
to the Golden Eagles' 30-yard
line with 2:30 left in the game.
However, Venice's drive
stalled with 1:50 left as
Burton's pass sailed and was
intercepted by Lucas Foreman
at the Naples' 15-yard line.
"Should we have won that?
Yeah," Peacock said. "I was
impressed with way we came

Roberts Insurance captures City Cup


U-


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Roberts Insurance scored four runs in
the third inning with two outs to rally from
an early 3-0 deficit and capture the Majors
City Cup championship over the Dentists,
6-4, on Tuesday night at Chuck Reiter
Complex.
It's been quite a turnaround season for
Roberts Insurance, which started the sea-
son with four straight losses.
"As the season went on we started play-
ing well together," Roberts Insurance man-
ager Marc Smith said. "Halfway through
the season I don't think we lost a game.
They really started coming together and
playing well."
Trailing 3-0, Roberts Insurance scored
its first run in the second inning on a wild
pitch. Preston Hines led off with a single
then Justin Hanley reached on a fielder's
choice as Hines was forced at second. A
groundout by Brock Peyton moved Hanley
to third and he scored on a wild pitch.
"I told them to just stay with it," the
manager said about his three-run deficit.
"We tell them every game to battle every
inning. If not win first inning then win the
next one."
In the third inning, Dentists starter
Grattan Phillips got the first two outs. Tyler
Gardner and Mark Arnold hit back-to-back
singles to the fence to put runners at first
and third base. Arnold stole second base.
Two consecutive errors tied the score at 3-3.
Hanley followed with a single into left
field to score Blake Smith and Hines to give
Roberts Insurance a 5-3 lead.
Taking care of the Dentists hitters was
Roberts Insurance reliever Peyton. The
left-hander, who entered in the second
inning, allowed just two hits with seven
strikeouts for the victory.
"We played to the end and never gave
up," Peyton said. "I was just to throw strikes
all the time."
"I think Brock came in and did a great
job," Marc Smith said.
The Dentists got a run back in the fifth
inning on an RBI groundout by Misho
Cemovich and only trailed, 5-4.
Roberts Insurance added run in the top
of the sixth inning on a solo home run by
Billy Bryant, which just cleared the center

Hitters were allowed eight swings in the

Roberts Insurance 7, Lawyers 2
In the winner's bracket final, Roberts
Insurance pitcher Preston Hines allowed
just three hits with 10 strikeouts in the 7-2
victory over Lawyers on Saturday morning.
Roberts Insurance, which remains the
only unbeaten team in the Majors City
Cup, jumped out to a 3-0 lead with three
runs in the top of the first inning, thanks to
five consecutive hits from Tyler Gardner,
Mark Arnold, Blake Smith, Hines and
Justin Hanley.
In the fourth inning, Roberts added
another run on an RBI groundout by Jacob
Pratt to score Billy Bryant.
The Lawyers got on the scoreboard in
the fourth inning on an RBI double by Tyler
Rickert down the third-base line scoring
Brent Killam.


Roberts Insurance added two runs in
the fifth inning. Smith singled and went to
second on another hit by Hanley. A
groundout moved the runners over a base,
then Bryant hit a two-run single into right-
center field.
In the sixth inning, Roberts scored its
final run on an RBI groundout by Smith to
score Shane Toepfer.
Keeping the Lawyers close were four
outstanding catches by center fielder
Garrett Gager to rob Roberts of hits.
The Lawyers scored their last run in the
sixth inning. Gager led off with a single and
went to second on a wild pitch. Rickert
then doubled to score Gager.
Rickert had two doubles for the
Lawyers.
Hanley went 3-for-3 for Roberts
Insurance while Smith, Gardner and
Bryant had two hits each.
Dentists 10, Kiwanis 9
The Dentists scored six runs in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning to rally for a a 10-9
win over Kiwanis on Saturday afternoon in
an elimination game.
The loss eliminated Kiwanis from the
tournament.
Tied 9-9 with one out in the bottom of
the sixth and final inning, Misho Cemovich
raced home on a wild pitch and slid in
safely for the winning run.
The Dentists trailed 9-4 entering the

yards total on offense while its defense,
which returned 10 of 11 starters, limit-
ed the Indians to five first downs and
134 total yards.
"I didn't like the way they came out
from halftime," Peacock said. "I don't
think they played with emotion.
Definitely two different halves without
a doubt. I think they thought the game
was called and didn't play with emo-
tional when they came out. Probably
more than half is our (coaches) fault for
not getting them ready."
Hurting Venice were two sprained
ankles suffered byTrey Burton and run-
ning back Justin Grant at the end of the
first half.
Grant's was particularly hard
because it occurred after he scored on a
3-yard run with 1:25 remaining to give
Venice a 18-7 halftime cushion.
The 195-pound incoming senior
had 167 yards on nine carries in the first
half
"What about Justin Grant?," Peacock
said. "He showed us some things
tonight. I'm real pleased with him. He's
a player. He's turned it up a notch and
did a heck of a job. He (Trey) probably
should not have played that second
half as he was banged up pretty good
on the ankle."
According to Peacock, Burton
sprained his ankle at the second half
but Venice's backup quarterback AJ
Rotella was out the last three days with
an abdominal strain.
Burton was 5-of-16 for 119 yards and
also had 33 yards rushing on 15 carries.


Venice's freshmen came out strong
as they played the first six minutes and
drove the Indians down the field.
Quarterback Zach Flerlage rushed for
27 yards on 10 carries and also com-
pleted a pass of seven yards to get the
Venice varsity into scoring position at
the 27-yard line.
"I was real impressed with the fresh-
men," Peacock said. "I think they did an
unbelievable job. You took a picture of
our freshmen team and their freshmen
team and they didn't look the same did
they?"
It took just two plays for Venice to
score as Burton hit Grant out of the
backfield for a 25-yard completion then
after a penalty, Burton scored on a 1-
yard run with 5:48 left in the quarter.
The PAT by new kicker Joe Carlin was
pushed wide right.
Venice drove the ball to the Naples
19-yard line but turned the ball over on
downs as Burton was stopped on a
fourth-and-one situation.
Grant gave the Indians a 12-0 lead as
he busted up the middle and went
untouched for an 81-yard TD run with
4:24 left in the second quarter.
Naples got on the scoreboard on its
next offensive play as quarterback
William Brooks went up the middle
and raced down the left sideline for a
60-yard TD run with four minutes left.
Grant set up Venice's final TD of the
first half as he broke off a 59-yard run to
get Venice to the Naples' 31. A pass
interference penalty moved Venice to
the 6-yard line. Two plays later, Grant
scored on a 2-yard run.
Venice had 208 yards total on offense


including 169 rushing. The Indians
defense limited Naples to just two first
downs and 127 yards total including 60
yards on one play.
"Great the first half but terrible the
second half," Peacock said about his
defense. "They first half they had one
first down other than fake punt. They
had one long run."
In the second half, Naples drove 80
yards on 11 plays to pull within 18-15
on a 10-yard run by William Crook, an
incoming sophomore, who was mak-
ing his first varsity start.
The Indians had their next drive stall at
Naples' 10-yard line as Burton was held to
no gain on a fourth-and-8 situation.
The Golden Eagles used its next pos-
session to take the lead by driving 90
yards on 11 plays. Crook hit Cameron
Schlagel down the left sideline for a 22-
yard TD on a third-and-nine situation
with 8:50 remaining in the game.
"It was a perfect thrown ball and
receiver made a great play going up and
getting it at its highest point," Peacock
said.
Naples closed out the scoring on a
38-yard field goal by Cesar Vaca-
Hurtado
with 3:41 left.
"Naples High School has a good,
good football program," Peacock said.
"They have won two state champi-
onships in last eight years and played in
three state championships."
"Those Venice kids are big, strong
and physical and extremely well-pre-
pared," Kramer said. "We are fortunate
to get out of here as healthy as we are
and with a win."

HAVE A SAFE SUMMER!


Surprisingly, summertime can be one of the most dangerous times of year.
Just think about it. Children are out of school and into swimming pools. People
are being active outdoors in sweltering temperatures, increasing their chance of
heat stroke. Families are grilling and eating alfresco, running the risk of food poi-
soning. There are more kids on bikes, more families hitting the road for vacations,
more people at the beach without sunscreen the list goes on and on.

Yes, summertime can be a busy time for emergency rooms. Venice Regional
Medical Center has a highly rated ER center that is fully equipped and staffed
around the clock with board-certified physicians to handle a wide gamut of
maladies, from injuries to intestinal flu. With a bedside registration process and
separate triage areas, patients are able to receive the appropriate treatment quickly
and efficiently. After all, an emergency room is only as good as the hospital that
supports it. VRMC is widely recognized for its stellar cardiac care, surgical unit
and orthopedic services. If your life or the life of a loved one was in the
balance in an emergency situation, isn't it nice to know that you have a nationally
ranked hospital standing by to help?

And while the ER staff at VRMC is ready and waiting to meet any crisis
head-on, they would prefer that everyone stay safe and have an accident-free
summer instead. Here are some tips to follow to help make your summer as safe
and carefree as possible.

WATER SAFETY If you have young children or grandchildren, do not
leave them alone by a pool for any amount of time. Teach children to swim with
a buddy and discourage head-first diving. When you go to the beach, don't rely
on lifeguards be vigilant when supervising your children. Be aware of rip tide
warnings and know what to do if you are caught in one. If you go boating, wear
life vests and be certain someone on shore knows where you plan to go and when
you expect to return.

SUN SAFETY Wear sunscreen and reapply every two hours. Drink plenty
of water. Don't engage in strenuous activities during the heat of the day. If you
notice sudden dizziness, nausea, headaches or an increased pulse rate, you may
be experiencing heat stroke. Get to a cooler location and seek medical attention
immediately.

FOOD SAFETY Don't allow food to sit in the hot sun. Keep warm foods
warm and cool foods cool. When grilling, use different plates and utensils for raw
and cooked meats.

GENERAL SAFETY Wear a helmet when biking, no matter your age.
Before setting off an extended road trip, have your car inspected and serviced as
needed, and always wear a seatbelt. Keep a list of your medications with you in
case of emergency, and bring along a first-aid kit too. Finally, when summer
lightening storms strike, seek shelter indoors.


HOPE FOR HEALING
CHRONIC WOUNDS

Non-healing wounds are
no laughing matter. They can
be the source of significant
pain, limit one's mobility and
result in reclusive behavior,
often with social and economic
consequences.
A chronic wound is an
injury involving a break in
the skin that does not heal in
a timely manner, usually two
to four weeks. Some wounds
are rooted in other serious
medical conditions, such as
diabetes, cancer, heart disease
and blood circulation disor-
ders. Chronic wounds may
also be caused by trauma,
skin tears, post radiation
treatments, diabetic ulcers,
lower leg ulcers due to circu-
lation problems, or unrelieved
pressure on the skin. People
who are most susceptible to
chronic wounds are those
with chronic diseases, the
elderly, the diabetic, and those
who are bedridden, paralyzed
or malnourished.
The Center for Wound
Care at Venice Regional
Medical Center is dedicated
to helping people heal their
wounds by using the latest
technology and comprehen-
sive therapy programs. One
of the Center's most prom-
ising treatment options is
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
which stimulates the body's
natural healing process by
increasing circulation and the
growth of new blood vessels.
During treatment, patients lie
in a pressurized chamber and
breathe pure oxygen. Studies
have found that this process
speeds healing and enhances
the body's ability to fight
infection.
For more information
about chronic wounds
and treatments available
at VRMC, please call
486-6027.

Venice student finalist in poster design competition


Emily Colan was the local, first-place winner.


FROM THE ART
INSTITUTE OF TAMPA

Venice High School senior
Emily Colan was the local,
first-place winner for The Art
Institute of Tampa's Poster
Design Scholarship Compe-
tition hosted by Americans for
the Arts and The Art Institutes
system of schools.
This three-phase competi-


tion is designed to showcase
the best high school talent in
North America in the field of
graphic design through local
and national competitions.
The local competition took
place at The Art Institute of
Tampa in March. Participants
designed a poster depicting
their idea of the theme, Life is
Better with Art in It.
In partnership with the not-


for-profit organization Amer-
icans for the Arts, The Art
Institutes Poster Design Com-
petition is an opportunity for
talented young artists at the
high school level to earn a
scholarship to study graphic
design, earn a degree and
launch a professional career.
Colan won a $3,000 tuition-
scholarship to attend The Art
Institute of Tampa Graphic
Design program.
National judging for The Art


Institutes and Americans for
the Arts Poster Design Com-
petition 2009 has begun on
The Art Institutes Web site
www.artinstitutes.edu/poster
design.
A judging panel comprising
18 graphic design profession-
als will evaluate the local first
place winning entries from
each participating school to
determine the top 12 winners
in the national competition.
The top 12 national win-


ners will be announced May
15; their poster designs will
make up a calendar.
Visit the Web page www.
artinstitutes.edu/posterdesign
to view the inspiring work of
these young artists.
The Art Institute will award
about $100,000 in tuition
scholarships.

tition, visit www.artinstitutes.

BOATSWAGEN from Page 1B


area, although not completely. Neither man will stay
as dry as the radio. Fortunately, that bilge pump real-
ly works.
The cover over the front seats was only recently
added, after the men made a trial run on the inter-
state, in preparation for their cross-country trip.
"I've had it about five years and I had it about a year
before we could drive it on the streets," Lebedun said.
"I never had it on the highway until a month ago."
The two men took the car on a trial run on the
highway, driving Interstate 75 to Tampa.
"We got fried," Kleinschmidt said.
There is a roll-back cover that goes over the entire
seating area but that is for when the "boat" is at the
dock, not going 70 mph on the highway.
Since the Boatswagen's return from Tampa, a new
cloth top has been added above the front seat. The
men hope the new cover will protect them from the
worst of the rain and sun as they motor some 3,500
miles from coast to coast. The acid test will come
when they have to cross the desert section of In-
terstate 10 in Southern California. The Boatswagen
engine is air-cooled. The average daily temperature in
June is higher than 103 degrees at Dessert Hot Springs
just off the interstate. In mid-May, Needles was
recording 103 degrees and higher most afternoons.
That city is on old Route 66 on the border of Nevada
and California. Even in air-conditioned cars, many
travelers choose to cross that stretch of Interstate 10 at
night, to save straining the car's cooling system.
During the day in early June, temperatures can reach
110 degrees and higher. At night, temperatures drop
to as low as 80 degrees.


Interstate 10 is well traveled at any time, and today
there are several small towns and service areas along
the way. Then come the mountains and finally, Irvine,
and the Volkswagen conference.
By the time these two boaters arrive at their desti-
nation they could be as red as the Boatswagen.
Should the boat go aground or whatever car/boats do
in a bad situation, Kleinschmidt is ready.
"I have an open-ended airline ticket," he said.
Should they go too far and end up in the Pacific,
Lebedum said that it is a multi-purpose vehicle.
"Yes, it goes in the water and then it becomes a
sub," he said, with a smile.
With its new 195 cc Volkswagen engine and new
dual Weber carburetors, going into the water is not in
the plans. There also is a new roll bar, front disk
brakes, new leather-covered padded headrests and
new speakers for the radio just above the headrests.
"It is a little noisy," Lebedun said. "It will go about
85 miles per hour."
He said that to duplicate it as it is today would like-
ly cost about $20,000.
Sponsors are helping to defray the travel costs and
also earn some money for Habitat for Humanity. It
costs $140 to buy a sponsorship that puts one's name
on the car/boat for a year, but donations in any

amount are welcome for Habitat. First sponsors to
sign up were Fisher Buggies, Hagerty Insurance,
Industrial Spring and Coldwell Banker Realtor Lou
Sauppe.
The planned itinerary is Venice to Live Oak, Fla.;
Pensacola, Baton Rouge; Houston, San Antonio, Fort
Stockton, Texas; Las Cruces, N.M., Tucson, Blythe,
Ariz., by June 5 and then into California. The longest
planned stretch is 311 miles from San Antonio to Fort
Stockton. The shortest is the stretch from Houston to
San Antonio.
In addition to dealing with the elements, the men
also will be filming a documentary of their trip.
When they finally arrive, they will toss out a little
rubber anchor and hang the boat fenders on the sides
of the Boatswagen. The conference will be held June
12-14. On Nov. 8, they plan to be at the Pasco Bug Jam
in Dade City.
To follow the men across the U.S. and/or to be-
come a sponsor or make a donation to Habitat, visit
www.boatswagen.com, where they will post regular
progress reports.
"Our immediate goal is to get to Tallahassee and
still be talking to each other," they said.

Anyone -
who stands for
long periods of time on
stone, tile, or concrete
surfaces will tell you that it
is hard on the feet and back.
When a chiropractor hears
that an employee or
homemaker is experiencing back
pain, one of the first suspects is an
unforgiving floor. If a hard surface
is the culprit, the problem will
likely be helped by introducing a
thin, moderately compressible mat
beneath the feet. With a softer surface
beneath their feet, back-pain sufferers
Smay further help themselves by
swaying from side to side (postural
sway) periodically. This action
requires contraction of opposing
trunk muscles, which, in turn,
increases blood flow via a pumping
action of the muscles.


P.S. Anyone who assumes any
position for long periods of time
or engages in repetitive motions
may benefit from a chiropractic
assessment.

Turning over a new leaf


BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


Fifteen Venice High
School students learned
what it takes to find suc-
cess and turned a nega-


tive outlook into a posi-
tive force for academic
achievement.
Because they were
able to overcome per-
sonal and academic ob-
stacles to a great degree,
these 15 were honored at


the Sarasota County
School District's Most
Improved Student Award
luncheon April 20 at
Michael's On East.

dren with and without disabilities. The
joint initiative from VSA Arts and CVS
Caremark encourages learning and
community engagement through the
arts. Teaching artists work with stu-
dents with disabilities in the classroom.
CVS Caremark associates will also par-
ticipate in volunteer activities in their
communities.
"Art gives children of all abilities a
great opportunity for personal expres-
sion," said Eileen Howard Dunn, senior
vice president, corporate communica-
tions and community relations for CVS
Caremark. "The millions of commuters
and tourists who will see this exhibition
will have the opportunity to experience
and appreciate some wonderful works
of art from developing young artists."

MARTY DOVER

Members of the Venice
Branch of American Associa-
tion of University Women
gathered May 2 at Jacaranda
West Country Club for their
spring honors and scholar-
ship luncheon.
Lois Wynne presented
four of the six recipients of
the Local Re-Entry Scholar-
ships that will enable them to
continue their higher educa-
tions. These very deserving
recipients are Enjoli Collins,
Melissa Rivest, LisaThomas,
Dianne Gagliano-Mindel,
Kellie Steiner and Marylou
Ugo.
Several fundraising events
contributed to the nearly


$8,000 in donations, particu-
larly the annual home tour.
Outgoing President Anne
Russell thanked the owners
of the five participating
homes, adding, "They made
today possible."
Guest speaker April
Glasco, a past recipient of
AAUW scholarships, spoke
eloquently of the difference
these scholarships made in
her life. She will pursue her
master's at Webster Universi-
ty. This year's recipients are
destined to repeat her suc-
cess because of their intelli-
gence, determination and a
little help from their friends.
New officers of the AAUW
Venice Branch were installed.
They are Shirley Reid, presi-
dent; Lynette Bennett, mem-
bership; and Amy Schirber,
secretary. The goal of the
AAUW is to advance equity
for women and girls through
advocacy, education and
research.
Lighting the pathway
The Laurel Civic Associa-
tion is an activist group
formed in 1969 to install
street lights in the Laurel
community. Each household


contributed $3 a month to
pay the electric bill.
Over the years the associa-
tion has become the driving
force behind community
pride, improvement and ser-
vice, most recently under the
leadership of Sandra Sims
Terry.
On May 5, the association
held its 40th anniversary lun-
cheon to honor three of their
most esteemed members:
Robert L. "Bob" Moore, the
Rev. Willie J. Beckom and
Walter Esworthy. Moore, an
attorney, has been a volun-
teer for the association since
he was approached by Terry
in 1989 for help in acquiring
501(c)(3) nonprofit status.
Beckom has worked tirelessly
in the community for more
than 40 years, serving as
organizer, president, board
member and spiritual leader.
Esworthy, also a founding
member, had a nomadic
Navy career that gave him a
deep appreciation for his
permanent home in Laurel,
where he and his wife, Ann,
settled in 1971.
The contributions of
these dedicated volunteers
to the Laurel community


are immeasurable. Terry
had tears in her eyes when
she said, "You can't do what
we do without having peo-
ple like this ... we can't do
anything without volun-
teers."
Inside 'The Outsiders'
Director Ron Myroup had
nothing but praise for the
dedication of the teen cast of
"The Outsiders," and it was
evident in their opening per-
formance May 7 at the Venice
Theatre's Stage II.
In this gritty and often
physically rough tale of
conflict and similarities
- between teens from both
sides of the tracks, one cast
member's dedication went
beyond expectations. Jake
Memon, with a lead role as
Johnny, had an inflamed
appendix about two weeks
before the show opened.
When told about Myroup's
concern for him, he said,
"Yeah, he's been like a dad
to us."
Some of these kids had to
travel long distances to
rehearsals, so thanks to the
parents who provided trans-
portation and support.


Also a founding member of the associa-
tion, the Rev. Willie Beckom built his first
home in Laurel in 1962 when the area
was called The Quarters and had no
street signs or communication. "It made
me so mad!" he said, adding, "I treasure
it (Laurel) tremendously."


Honoree Bob Moore, known as "Our
Stealth Angel" for his silent support and
38 years of community involvement, was
instrumental in acquiring nonprofit sta-
tus for the Laurel Civic Association.

Recycle your
appreciation of the arts
A reader who particular-
ly enjoyed Venice
Theatre's recent
production of "Willy Wonka"
was saddened that the house
was not filled the night he
attended. BW Comwell said
the show was one of the best
of year but "Where were all
the season ticket holders?"
As season winds down, it
seems there are more empty
seats in area theaters. Many of
those seats are not unsold
seats but seats that belong to
people who purchased season
deals and failed to use the
tickets because they have
already returned to the north
for the summer.
Cornwell suggested that
those ticket holders give their
tickets away and better yet, if
the show is as kid friendly as
"Willy Wonka," give the tickets
to children.
What a great idea.
Filled seats are great for the
show's casts who really do feel
the energy from a filled house.
But giving unused tickets
away could also introduce
new people to live theater. Too
many people might never see
live theater and not necessari-
ly because of the cost of the
tickets.
When tickets are given to
young people who might be
attending a live show for the
very first time, those tickets
could well be opening up a
door to culture that will enrich
that person's entire life.
Recycling tickets is a timely
idea. Should you find yourself
with unused tickets, don't let
them go to waste. Recycle
them by giving them to
someone else. If it wins over
future fans, better yet.
Kudos to Venice Theatre for
another great season and
extra kudos to BW Comwell
for this great idea.

COVER STORY

'Souvenir' features Tony nominee


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Since the arrival of
Michael Donald Edwards
on the Sarasota scene as
the producing artistic
director of the Asolo
Repertory Company three
years ago, the company's
Broadway connection has
strengthened.
Next up on the historic
Mertz stage is "Souvenir: A
Fantasia on the Life of
Florence Foster Jenkins"
by Stephen Temperley.
Reprising their Broad-
way roles are Judy Kaye
and Donald Corren who
starred in the original
Broadway production.
Tony Award-winner Kay
earned a Tony nomination
for her performance as
Jenkins. In fact, this show
is the Broadway produc-
tion, Asolo spokesman
Julia Guzman said.
This enhanced Broad-
way connection began
with the opening play of
the first Asolo Rep season
under Edwards' leader-
ship. The play was Peter
Shaffer's "Amadeus,"
which had won a Tony for
Best Play. Directed by
Edwards, that play was
followed by the world
premier of "The Plexiglass
Slipper" and another new
show, "Ella," produced in
conjunction with Arizona
Theatre Company, the
Cleveland Playhouse and
San Jose Rep.
Sarasota audiences
were getting an education
with their entertainment.
In his second year at the
helm, Edwards opened
the season by directing a
Broadway-musical-style
show, Jill Santoriello's "A
Tale of Two Cities," in its
pre-Broadway run. The


Florence (Judy Kaye) hits a high note while her accompa-
nist, Cosme (Donald Corren), tries to keep his composure.


Cosme McMoon (Donald Corren) reassures Florence
(Judy Kaye) that her voice moves people.


show did make it to
Broadway where, as in
Sarasota, audiences were
generally favorable but
critics less so. Neverthe-
less it had a decent run
and further enhanced the
Asolo's reputation in time
for the company's 50th
anniversary season, which
began on the Mertz stage
with the Broadway
musical "Barnum" and
will conclude with the
Broadway musical play,
"Souvenir."
"Souvenir" was referred
to as "Pitch Perfect by the
New York Times critic and


referred to as "hilarious
and deeply touching" in
the New York Daily News.
The story is based on
the Florence Foster
Jenkins who was a
wealthy socialite. Gener-
ous and eccentric and
tone deaf, she fancied
herself a soprano, often
entertaining friends and
fellow socialites at her
charity functions in the
Ritz-Carlton ballroom.
Somehow, despite being
tone-deaf and not the
greatest soprano in the
world, she developed a
cult following and became


something of a legend in
her own time. According
to information from the
Asolo Repertory Compa-
ny, it took Temperley
some 25 years to get a
handle on the woman and
her life. It all came
together when he delved
into her relationship with
her accompanist Cosme
McMoon.
The setting is New York,
circa 1932-1944. The
action takes place primar-
ily at a Greenwich Village
supper club and in
Jenkins' music room in
her Ritz-Carlton suite. In
Jenkins' case, over
confidence may not have
been such a bad thing
after all.
To bring the show to
Broadway, Temperley had
to find a singer good
enough to sing offkey and
do it well so that the
audience would believe as
did Jenkins' audiences.
That her Broadway co-
star also will perform
during the Asolo run is a
fitting way to close out the
50th anniversary season
and the third Asolo
Repertory season to have
such a strong Broadway
connection.
The director is Vivian
Matalon, who also
directed the show on
Broadway. The set was
designed by R. Michael
Miller, who not only
designed the set for the
Boardway run but also for
several other incarnations
of "Souvenir" in the
ensuing years.
Costumes are by Tracey
Cristensen who also
worked with Matalon on
the Broadway production.
Other Broadway veterans
working on the show are


lighting designer Ann G. in Sarasota.
Wrightson and Sound Souvenir will play June
Designer David Budries. 5-28 in the Mertz Theatre,
Stage manager Jack 5555 North Tamiami Trail,
Gianino served in the Sarasota. Tickets are $20-
same capacity on Broad- $58 per person. Visit

Pop goes

By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre's next
cabaret show, "Why Do
Fools Fall in Love?"
adds a story to the
music mix.
That the four cast
members were not even
around when the music
of this show first hit the
charts back in the 1960s
is another twist.
While the cast may be
the youngest in Venice
Theatre cabaret history,
they are not without
ample stage experience,
especially Lauren Kelly
and Emily Mounce who
practically grew up at
Venice Theatre where
they have been studying
and performing for
most of their lives.
Mounce was in the
recent production of
"The Sound of Music,"
in the role of Liesl. Kirsh
was a nun in the the-
ater's recent production
of "The Sound of Music
and Longstreet was in


the music at Venice Theatre


the theater's production
of "Reefer Madness."
Kelly and Mounce also
have performed in
several of the theater's
outreach programs over
the years.
The show was created
by Roger Bean.
Music Director Jason
Brenner has been
working with the girls
on the art f four-part
harmony so they can
replicate the girl-group
sound of the 60s. Who
could forget the
Shirelles singing "I Met
Him on Sunday" or the
Angels performing "My
Boyfriend's Back?" or
the Chiffons' "Sweet
Talkin' Guy." And
whatever happened to
Little Eva, the Mar-
velettes, the Pointer
Sisters and Martha and
the Vandellas. Cleve-
landers in the Home of
Rock & Roll had "The
Ponytails, a one-hit
wonder group that hit
the charts in 1958 with


"Born Too Late." That
song is not in the show
but chances are that
your favorite hit of the
era will be.
According to a release
from Venice Theatre the
following songs are
included on the list:
"My Boy Lollipop,"
"He's a Rebel," "I Will
Follow Him" and "You
Don't Have to SayYou
Love Me." The songs
were selected to tell the
story of four girlfriends:
Sally (Kelly), Millie
(Mounce), Florence
(Longstreet) and Dee
(Kirsch) who are
reconnecting for the
marriage of one of their
group.
In addition to Kollar
and Brenner the pro-
duction team includes
lighting designer Alise
Hart, sound designer
Dorian Boyd, costume
designer Karly
Tufenkjian, choreogra-
pher Donna Culbreath,
production manager


Mark Dukes, technical
director John Anzulis
and stage manager
Ashley Novidor-
Andzuliz.
Venice Theatre is at
140 W. Tampa Ave., on
the island in downtown
Venice.
"Why Do Fools Fall in
Love" opens Friday,
May 29 and plays
through Sunday, June
14, with performances
Tuesday through
Saturday at 8 p.m. and
Sunday at 2 p.m., in
the Yvonne T. Pinkerton
Theatre, which is being
transformed as a
cabaret for this show.
Tickets are $24 per
person for adults and
$12 for students. For
reservations, call the
theater box office,
weekdays from 10 a.m.
5 p.m. or Saturday from

'Perfect Mendacity' is perfectly timely


By KIM COOL
FEATURE EDITOR
There is a time for
"Perfect Mendacity" and
that time is now.
Jason Wells newest play
had its world premier May
15 in the Jane B. Cook
Theatre at the Florida
State University Center
for the Performing Arts.
Wells who also wrote
"Men of Tortuga-" which
was performed during the
Asolo's 2006-07 season, is
current events sponge.
That one concerned the
scruples (or lack of them)
by men in the political
arena.
"Perfect Mendacity"
takes another look at
honesty while giving the
audience another oppor-
tunity to see the world
through Wells' eyes. It was
directed by Michael
Donald Edwards, the
artistic director of the
Asolo Repertory Company


and the man responsible
for bringing both of these
fine Wells' plays to
Sarasota and for choosing
just the right cast.
Walter Kreutzer (David
Breitbarth) is a biologist
working in a top-secret
lab environment with
Roger Stanhope (Douglas
Jones) and Dr. Doll (Jason
Peck), the polygraph
examiner who would test
Walter. He is married to
Samira (Diana Simon-
zadeh).
As the play begins we
find Walter, troubled and
anxious, in the office of
D'Avore Peoples (Demario
McGrew), a polygraph
expert. Secretive, defiant
and unyielding, Walter is
there to learn how to beat
a polygraph test, but he is
not about to tell the
expert why he needs to
beat the test.
Breitbarth peels back
the layers of Walter's


anxiety one step at a time,
augmenting the author's
verbiage with the look in
his eyes, the tightness in
his jaw and facial mus-
cles, his posture, the way
he wrings his hands
without visibly wringing
his hands. Neither
underplaying nor over-
playing his role, Breit-
barth uncovers a man
whose pain increases as
the story unfolds and we
feel every nuance.
Breitbarth is in his
element with this charac-
terization and at his best.
Also in his element is
McGrew, a third-year
student in the Asolo
Conservatory of Actor
Training. Like Breitbarth,
McGrew wrenches every
emotion from the role.
Remember his name.
Peoples is consistently
one step ahead of Walter,
having done his research
and learned quite a bit


about this lab scientist
who is being accused of
leaking top-secret infor-
mation. Walter is adamant
about his privacy and his
innocence.
Scene two takes us into
the Kreutzer apartment
where we learn about the
wife's upbringing. Might
she have leaked the
document? The plot
thickens.
The set change from
polygraph office to
apartment involved little
more than switching out a
sofa for Peoples' desk.
Designed by Jeffrey Dean,
the clever modular set
could be transformed for
one scene after another
with a few columns of
light and/or some furni-
ture swapping.
Jones, a long-time Asolo
actor, delivered another
fine performance as
Walters supervisor who
was somewhat supportive

Murder on the Seminole Gulf Railway


May 27-28, 2009


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
For those with an
appetite for murder,
mayhem and meat,
there is no better
destination than Colo-
nial station at Fort
Myers for an evening
ride on the Seminole
Gulf Railways Dinner
Train Theater.
During the nearly four-
hour train ride, passen-
gers journey north,
crossing over the
Caloosahatchee
River/Intracoastal
Waterway and then,
riding the rails parallel
to Interstate 75, head up
to Punta Gorda.
Most of the train cars
date to the 1940s and
1950s, which many
consider the golden age
of train travel in the
United States. The cars
were restored to that
same era and provide
the perfect backdrop for
the theatrical entertain-
ment offered on board.
Most of the play topics
are set in the period of
the vintage rolling stock
used by the railway.
Not only are the plays
written for production
on board the train but
the setting provides an
extra challenge to the
playwright. Consider
that there may be three
or more dining cars on
board and that every
scene needs to be
presented in each car.
"We have to throw out
many of the basic rules
of playwriting," dinner
train playwright John
Repa said. "Scenes are
not presented in the
same order in each car."

night, when I was
aboard, the theatrical
offering was "Murder,
Quite Undiplomatic, Let
the Cold War Begin." It
was written by Repa,
who also performed in
the show as O.C. Mor-
ron, a military intelli-
gence officer assigned to
escort two important
diplomats to a peace
conference. There also
were two aviators
aboard the train, Betsy
Lee Grant (Tawnie
McDowell) and Mad Dog
Malarkey (Timothy J.
Gunderman). Betsy Lee
is a WASP (Women's Air
Service Pilot) who
delivers planes from the
factory for the U.S. Army
Air Corps (predecessor
of the Air Force).
Malarkey is a sort of
zany know-it-all who
distrusts women pilots
in general. The fourth
character on board was
Cheng Mai-Lee, por-
trayed by Wende
Gilmore, who was the
show's costumer. For
some unknown reason
the fifth character,
Princess Vadavitch,
missed the train Satur-

day night. Perhaps she
was the first victim.
Those of us on the train
definitely ruled her out
as the killer.
Cheng Mai-Lee,
dressed in a kimono
with chopsticks in her
pinned up hair resem-
bled a Japanese geisha
more than anyone from
China. Oops that
could be a clue. She was
traveling with her
husband, the exiled
Chinese Ambassador.
Before the main course
arrived, the exiled
Chinese Ambassador
was dead. Was his death
a ritual suicide or was he
the victim of foul play?
To that end each of us
on board had been given
clue sheets and basic
synopsis of the storyline
so that we might identify
the killer. In case more
than one passenger
guesses correctly, there
also is a bonus question
that needs to be
answered. That too is
based on something that
occurs during the play
presentation. There is a
winner in each car.
Winners go home with
cast autographs, a
certificate and a Dinner
Train Theater mug or
other souvenir of what
most passengers consid-
er a fun evening.
Two different plays are


offered each week and
plays change every few
weeks. During certain
holiday times, the
storylines reflect the
holidays.
Repa is the full-time
writer/director and
actor. McDowell also
works full-time for the
train company. She is in
the office during the
week and in costume for
the weekend show.
Gunderman said he has
been with the theater for
about 13 years.
Dinners begin with
cheese and cracker and
fruit appetizers and
include soup, salad,
entree, country baked
breads and rolls and
dessert plus coffee and
hot or iced tea. The
entree selection includ-
ed boneless breast of
chicken, poached
salmon or prime rib. I
ordered the prime rib
medium rare and that is
how it arrived. Soft
drinks, beer and a few
mixed drinks plus wine
(by the glass or bottle)
are available at an
additional charge.
Everything is prepared
on board by Chef Scott
VanAken who graduated
from the Culinary
Institute of America.
"We are in the process
of putting out a cook-
book," he said.
Featuring recipes
served aboard the
dinner train, it is expect-
ed to be available before

Devin Jones to speak at Sarasota's first arts expo


PROVIDED BY SARASOTA
ARTS COUNCIL
Renowned playwright
and arts advocate Bob
Devin Jones will speak
to area arts and business
professionals during a
day-long creative
collaboration on May 29
at the Beatrice Friedman
Symphony Center, 709
North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota. From 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. area cultural
and business profes-
sionals will participate
in workshops and
networking sessions.
Jones, the co-founder
and artistic director of
The Studio@620 in St.
Petersburg will be the
featured speaker at the
event which is a collabo-
rative effort of the
Sarasota County Arts
Council and the Com-
munity Foundation of
Sarasota County's
Nonprofit Resource

"We're delighted to
have Bob Devin Jones
speak at this very first
artsExpo," said Russ
Crumley, executive
director of the Sarasota
County Arts Council.
"Bob is a passionate and
tireless advocate for the
arts. At artsExpo, he'll
talk about issues related
to the future of the arts,
including outreach,


collaboration and
sustainability. He'll
explore how the arts can
assume a role of trans-
formative economic
power rather than
simply be a quality-of-
life indicator. We hope
that his passion will be
infectious and his vision
will resonate with the
audience as he shares
his perspectives."
Jones is the author of
more than a dozen
plays, including "Uncle
Bends: A Home-Cooked
Negro Narrative" and
"BlackWitness: James
Baldwin." As the artistic
director of The Stu-
dio@620, a non-profit
arts alliance and per-
forming and exhibition
space in St. Petersburg,
Jones has become a
renowned advocate for
the arts. He has served
on the arts advisory
panel for the city of St.
Petersburg, and on the
boards of Creative Clay
and American Stage. His
appearance at artsExpo
is sponsored by Ringling
College of Art and
Design.

organizations and
businesses that work

Port Charlotte Chapter of the Chrome Divas to hold a fundraiser


STAFF REPORT
The Port Charlotte
Chapter of the Chrome
Divas will hold a fundrais-
er for Nancy Rubin, a
member of the organiza-
tion whose husband,
George, was killed in a
motorcycle accident May 7
in North Port.
A spaghetti dinner will
be held noon to 5 p.m.
Sunday at the Ironhorse
Estates home of Sue May,
24741 Nova Lane, Port
Charlotte. Silent auction
items are being accepted;
there will also be a
motorcycle rodeo and
raffles. Cost is $5 per
person.
Chrome Divas are a
group of professional
women who enjoy riding
motorcycles and raise


funds for local charitable
organizations.
According to the
organization, George was
a Chrome Divas pastor,
the first chaplain in
Florida for ABATE, a
Christian Motorcyclists
Association Member and
active with the First
Alliance Church of Port
Charlotte.
He also drove a school
bus for many years for the
Sarasota County school
district, with routes in
Englewood.
George and Nancy
ministered to bikers
through their "Church on
the Highway" while
traveling to various rallies
and events throughout the
United States. George also
served as surrogate


chaplain to the Chrome
Divas of Port Charlotte
when Nancy was unavail-
able.
Proceeds from the
dinner will help continue
the efforts of the Church
on the Highway ministry,
according to May, co-
director of PR and road
captain for the local
Chrome Divas chapter.
According to North Port
police, George, 66, of Port
Charlotte, was riding his
Harley north on U.S. 41
near the North Port Home
Depot entrance when he
was struck from behind by
a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
George was flown by
helicopter to Bayfront
Medical Center in St.
Petersburg, where he later
died.


The local Chrome Divas
are also partnering with
the Peace River chapter of
ABATE for a group ride
this weekend in George's
memory.
The ride will be held
Saturday, starting in
DeSoto County and
ending at First Alliance
Church, 20444 Midway
Blvd., Port Charlotte, for a
memorial planned for the
pastor. The service is
scheduled to start at 4
p.m.
The ride will begin at
the Peace River Camp-
ground in Arcadia, with an
event held by American
Bikers Aiming Toward
Education of Florida.
Riders will leave the
campground at 2:30 p.m.
Saturday.


Hermitage artist shares expertise at Englewood Art Center


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Fresh from her Her-
mitage residency, photog-
rapher Sonja Thomsen will
speak about her work and
her Hermitage experience
from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Thursday at the Engle-
wood Art Center, a division
of Ringling College of Art
and Design.
The talk ties in with an
exhibit of the residency-
inspired work, which is
being displayed at the
center through June 1.
The Hermitage, located
on 8.5 beachfront acres on
Manasota Key, was
founded through the
efforts of the late Syd Adler
who had a dream of
bringing artists, musicians
and writers to the area to
work on specific projects.
Sarasota County owns the
site and leases it to the
Hermitage, a non-profit


organization which is
funded by grants and
donations. Resident artists
are provided with housing
and work space at the site.
In return the artists are
asked to give something
back to the community.
Thomsen's show at the
center and her talk are one
example. Last year,
playwright Romulus
Linney participated in a
dialog about plays and
playwriting with Her-
mitage director Bruce
Roberts and Venice
Theatre Artistic Director
Murray Chase at Venice
Theatre. Sculptor Mal-
comb Roberts, the first
Hermitage fellow, designed
a sculpture for the
Fruitville Library.
Those selected for
Hermitage fellowships are
generally in the middle of
their careers. With solidly
established reputations,


they may be ready to move
in a new direction or they
may simply want the
freedom to concentrate
fully on a specific project
for the length of their
Hermitage stay, which can
be as long as six weeks.
Thomsen used her six
weeks to explore water
from an artistic view-
point, not simply the gulf
water lapping the Her-
mitage beach but the
organisms within that
water and further, what
happens aesthetically
when oil and water meet.
With the addition of
shark's teeth, the
artist/photographer
assembled a collection of
works she refers to as
"Petrified." These are the
works being featured at
the art center, and about
which she will speak on
Thursday.
The photographer lives


in Milwaukee where she
is an adjunct professor at
the Milwaukee Institute of
Art and Design. She
earned a BA in biology
and studio art at Kenyon
College in 2000 and an
MFA in photography from
San Francisco Art Insti-
tute in 2004. She has work
in the permanent collec-
tion of the Milwaukee Art
Museum and has shown
her work in several shows
across the country.
Hermitage Program
Director Patricia Caswell
remarked about the way
this artist was so inspired
by her surroundings
during her Hermitage stay.
The Englewood Art
Center is 350 South McCall
Road, Englewood. Call
941-914-0910.
For information on the
Hermitage, call
941-475-2098 or visit
www.hermitage-fl.org.


Those who cannot join
the group in Arcadia will
gather, beginning at 2
p.m., at the Country Store
across from Lake Suzy on
King's Highway (County
Road 769), east of Inter-
state 75 (take exit 170 off I-
75). The group, starting at


the Country Store, will join
the riders from Arcadia
and ride to the church.
For more information
on the group ride or to
RSVP for the dinner,

Brick House Pizzeria: Not to be your typical pizzeria


May 27-28, 2009


Brick House Pizzeria
in the Kings
Crossing Plaza
claims not to be your
"typical pizzeria," we
agree that their menu
offerings and pizza are a
step above the local
norm.
The store front setting,
however, would be
familiar to pizzeria-goers
though the dining room
is much larger than usual.
An arched alcove holds
the brick-lined pizza
ovens and prep areas
where pizza dough is
tossed while you watch. A
long bar fronts this area
while the rest of the
dining room is furnished
with tables and chairs
with booths along the
opposite wall.............
The brick theme is
repeated in the wall
paper. A number of large
screen TV's include some
reserved for pay to play
games on the Wii.
In addition to the
pizzas, calzones and
strombolis there is a full
menu of Italian-American
meals. Entrees come with
salad and soup bar ....
He ordered Manicotti
($8.50), rolled pasta
stuffed with ricotta;
mozzarella and parmesan
cheeses topped with
marinara sauce and
melted mozzarella.

a grilled chicken version

chicken breast served

marinara sauce covered
with mozzarella. While
we waited for our main
dishes, we helped
ourselves to soup and
salad. The Italian Wed-
ding Soup, a chicken
broth with pastina, mini-
meatballs and greens was
disappointing; however,
the salad bar offered crisp
iceberg lettuce, with at
least eight other veggies
and sundry toppings.
Among the six dressings
offered there was a low-
cal balsamic vinaigrette.
Both entrees arrived
beautifully presented in
large soup dishes whose
rims were liberally
flecked with parsley and
grated cheese which
offset the bright red of
the tomato sauce. Two
pizza dough bread sticks
flanked the entrees.
The manicotti shells
were home-made crepes
filled with cheeses and
garnished lightly with a
fresh tasting sauce and
just the right amount of
melted mozzarella to
allow the flavors to come
through.
Her Chicken Parmesan
was topped with the
same sauce and cheese
over thin spaghetti. The
grilled chicken breast was
a bit over cooked, but the

dish as a whole was
flavorful.
When the waitress
indicated that all the
desserts were produced
in the restaurant's
kitchen, we decided to
indulge in a Chocolate
Cannoli ($4.50), and
Tiramisu ($5.25). Both
came in a pool of choco-
late syrup which fortu-
nately did not mask the
quality of the pastries.
The Cannoli crust was
crisp and coated in a
delicious thick chocolate
with creamy filling. The
Tiramisu was light and
fluffy, and sweet without
being cloying.
In the interest of
(kitchen) science, we
ordered a ten-inch
"Child's Pizza" ($6.50) to
go. It turned out to be
New-York style and
quality, with a tasty crust
and a good proportion of
cheese and sauce.
Delivery of any order over
$12 costs $2 and is
offered in a five-mile
radius. Brick House has a


number of "special'
nights to appeal to
seniors and families ...
They clearly aim to
please a wide audience
with their food and
activities.
