Council reaffirms vote against hangars


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Despite numerous legal
opinions on the subject and a
likely challenge by a federal
receivership who has threat-
ened a Part 16 action with the
Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration, city council Tuesday
voted to reaffirm its March 10
decision denying permits to
build four additional hangars
at the Venice Jet Center.
The jet center, once owned
by Art Nadel who is in prison
facing charges of investment
fraud, is in receivership and
the city has been inquiring
how to bid on and purchase
the fixed base operator. The re-
ceiver, Tampa attorney Burton
Wiand, threatened to bring a
Part 16 complaint before the
FAA, who already sided with
Wiand by directing the city to
place the issue on its agenda.
He also received a federal
judge's OK to pursue the issue
further with the FAA or any
other legal means necessary to
protect investor interests.
Mike Rafferty lined up hun-
dreds of e-mails from residents


Anderson Rafferty


to support council's original
decision blocking the hangars.
Rafferty drafted the contro-
versial alternative airport lay-
out plan that Mayor Ed Martin
first took to the FAA and which
the city is now considering in
its master plan review. He sent
out an "e-mail tree" calling for
citizen responses that referred
to losing the Lake Venice Golf
Course adjoining the airport to
expanded protection zones.
He called for another "peasant
rebellion of 2007" that stopped
a proposed Marriott Hotel on
airport grounds dead in its
tracks when residents got wind
it might be the end of afford-
able golf on the gulf.
"The message is clear,"
Rafferty testified. "Do not cave
into the school yard bullies. We


do not want jet hangars along
Airport Avenue."
Council Member John Sim-
monds criticized Rafferty for
the e-mail campaign and oth-
ers who believe there is still a
plot to purchase the golf
course and turn it into some-
thing else.
"It unlikely we would ever
think about canceling the golf
course lease," which sits on
airport property, Simmonds
said. "This (e-mail) went to
people up north who are scar-
ed about losing their golf
course. That isn't going to hap-
pen."
Resident Jim Shorefel urged
council to take what he called
a longer view and consider the
positive economic benefit of
the airport to the city.
"It provides city income
through leases and such,"
Shorefel said. "The growth be-
ing discussed may not be
properly configured, however
growth is inevitable and you
have to make allowances for it.
The idea (for the airport) to die
by negligence is not appropri-

Council Members John
Moore and John Simmonds

city council voted to pay pri-

The same day Venice City
Council debated whether to
pay private attorney fees relat-
ed to the Sunshine lawsuit, it
adopted a budget amendment
to pay $586,147 in attorneys'
fees for the fishing pier litiga-
tion and other services ren-
dered by its attorneys.
The budget amendment
calls for an increase in spend-
ing of $1.84 million. Most of
the increase is to cover capital
projects and is funded by $1.36
million in stimulus money and
state and federal grants. The
remaining $482,543 will come
from the general reserve fund,
or what council calls its "rainy
day account."
City Manager Isaac Turner
said Tuesday he was pleased
with the city's annual audit.
"The public can be assured
that the money is being spent
properly," Turner said.


Included
in the budget
amendment
is a payment
of $320,500
for attorneys
who defend-
ed the city
and defen-
dants in the Turner
Sunshine
lawsuit, including $98,661 to
City Attorney Bob Anderson,
$166,193 to Bell Roper &
Kohlmyer and $3,297 to Abel
Band all from the rainy day
account.
Another $265,647 was
approved to pay Able Band, an
outside law firm hired by the
city in last year's litigation with
The Pier Group, which owns
Sharky's restaurant.
The city and the restaurant
entered into an agreement in
2007 that included blanks
where the amounts of rents

Sink one here
The Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce
is interested in learn-
ing more about the
recent sinking of the
retired USS Vanden-
berg in the Florida
Keys as an artificial
reef.
"We are interested
in how this came
about and what it
would take to start the
process for the Venice
area," wrote John
Ryan, VACC president
and CEO, in a letter to
U.S. Rep. Vern
Buchanan requesting
an opportunity to dis-
cuss the idea further.
Ryan said the addi-
tional economic bene-
fit for the city could be
considerable.
Ryan said he solicit-
ed and received the
support of Venice
Mayor Ed Martin and
County Commissioner
Shannon Staub.
Service dogs
OK on beaches
To make the public
more aware of the
access service animals
have in the communi-
ty, Sarasota County
Parks and Recreation is
installing signs at
Venice area beaches to
let beachgoers know
that even though dogs
are not allowed on the
beach, a service animal
is. The signs will be
installed in the near


future, according to
the city's Public
Information Officer
Pam Johnson.
By law, service ani-
mals are allowed any
place the public is
allowed. Service ani-
mals come in all sizes,
shapes, colors and
even types of animals,
Johnson said. They
perform many func-
tions besides helping
the blind. Some are
able to detect oncom-
ing seizures, some per-
form duties for the
deaf and some can
open doors and
retrieve items for peo-
ple without the use of
their hands.

POLICE BEAT


Belligerent defendant
A Venice homeowner called the
Venice Police Department complain-
ing that a woman wouldn't leave his
residence in the 500 block of W.
Venice Ave.
Officers responded and found Fallon
N. Miller, 28 and homeless, showing
signs of intoxication. The homeowner
gave consent for the residence to be
searched and officers found a spoon
containing what appeared to be a blue
Oxycodone pill that was being heated
and liquefied.
Miller was advised of her rights and
told the officer the pill was "Roxie" and
that she had another one in her purse.
Officers confiscated that pill.
As officers were putting Miller into
the rear of the police car, she began
resisting them and had to be helped
into the car. She then said, "You need to
bring me to the hospital because I took
about 30 Roxies to kill myself."
While she was being treated at
Venice Regional Medical Center, she
was belligerent with officers and med-
ical personnel. The report states that
she deliberately spat on officer Ruth
Terry while using racial slurs. Miller was
cleared by the hospital medical staff
and taken to jail. Jail personnel were
advised of the threats of suicide.
Fallen was charged with battery on a
law enforcement officer or emergency
medical care provider, prejudice while
committing an offense, grand theft
motor vehicle, possession of a con-
trolled substance and obstructing or
opposing an officer without violence.
Bond was set at $4,370.


Fatality
Lawrence P Wagle, 69, of Venice died
Saturday evening after riding his bicy-
cle into the path of an oncoming car on
U.S. 41 Bypass.
Sharon M. Swat, 20, was driving her
SUV south on the inside lane through a
traffic signal that was "solid green,"
according to a police report, when
Wagle crossed the intersection at
Galleria Plaza into the path of Swat's
vehicle.
Swat and her two passengers, an 18-
year-old and a 1-month-old, were
uninjured.
Aggravated assault
Javier Fararoni-Munoz, 33, was
arrested and charged with aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon in con-
nection with a report of threatening
another man with a knife in the 100
block of Airport Ave., Venice.
A Venice police report states that
Fararoni-Munoz then fled in a white
SUV When Venice Police Department
officers stopped the SUV on U.S. 41 at
the Circus Bridge, they found the
weapon in the vehicle. The victim iden-
tified Fararoni-Munoz as the person
who had assaulted him.
Officers also arrested and charged
the driver of the SUV Emanuel
Fararoni-Munoz, 25, with DUI.
Stolen golf cart
Mark Campbell Grobmyer, 37, was
arrested and charged with grand theft
Monday at 1:18 a.m.

Police Department officer stopped him,
Grobmyer claimed he had borrowed
the cart from a friend in the 500 block of

address not to be valid. Then Grobmyer
said he borrowed it from a friend at an
apartment near the Church of Christian
Science on West Venice Avenue. This
could not be confirmed either.
Grobmyer refused to provide any
further information, so he was placed
under arrest and charged with loitering

requested that charges be filed.

With many struggling or out of work
in this economy, technical schools are
seeing increased numbers of adult stu-
dents enrolling to learn new skills and
enhance their employability.
Sarasota County Technical Institute
is currently undergoing an expansion,
both on its physical campus and in its
curriculum.
"About $45 million will go to the
next phases of the technical insti-
tute," said Sarasota County School
Superintendent Lori White. "The con-
struction project will utilize approxi-
mately 40 separate subcontractors,
and between 150 and 200 tradesmen.
That's 300 to 350 people on the pro-
ject, and many of them tend to be
from this area."
In addition to providing employ-
ment for local workers, SCTI is also
enhancing its curriculum offerings.
"In tough economic times, people
tend to retool themselves," White said,
adding that some of the programs that
could be added include landscape
management and TV production.


SCTI previously offered horticulture
classes, but dropped them due to low
enrollment.
SCTI students can take classes
seven days a week during all but two
weeks of the year, which is helpful for
those who already work during the
week but still want to continue their
education.
SCTI classes for adult students
include architecture and construction,
criminal justice, health science and a
veterinary assistance program. It also
offers part-time classes in accounting,
computers and various health sciences,
along with certifications in child care
and electronics systems, as well as
English classes for speakers of other
languages, GED prep courses and tech-
nical programs for high school-aged
students.
Adult SCTI students are able to
attend during any of the four quarterly
sessions, as well as a summer session
through mid-August.

sota County Technical Institute, call

Don Archer's company, Olympic Pools, is doing well in the economic downturn.



Pool business going swimmingly


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


With companies struggling during
the economic downturn, it's encourag-
ing to find a locally owned business
moving forward on its 25th anniversary.
Don Archer is not only celebrating
25 years in business, but reporting ris-
ing annual revenues for Olympic Pools,
360 South Tamiami Trail, Nokomis in
the Wingate Plaza.
He came to Venice from Long Island,
N.Y., in 1974 when with his family and
worked with his dad and brother in
their pool business. Ten years later he
decided to launch his own company,
setting up Olympic Pools in a small
office across from Matthews-Currie
Ford in Nokomis.
He began with pool maintenance. As
the business grew, he added remodeling,
resurfacing and retiling. The next stage
was to move into pool construction.
As his kids grew up, they persuaded

Learn about worksite wellness
Worksite Wellness: Tools and Re-
sources that Work is the topic of the
next seminar sponsored by the Sara-
sota County Wellness Coalition.
The presentation, led by Jennifer
Robertson, M.S., exercise science and
health promotion specialist, is on Wed-


him there were opportunities in solar
pool heaters. He expanded again with
their help and continued for 15 years
until they moved on and he decided he
no longer wanted to climb roofs.
Olympic Pools is a full-service com-
pany, with 12 employees providing
pool maintenance, remodeling and
new pool construction.
For eight years he has been a board
member of local and regional chapters
of the Florida Swimming Pool Associ-
ation.
And things are looking pretty good.
"Surprisingly, the company has
managed to carry on and increase busi-
ness due to our loyal customers in this
economic downturn," he said.
Despite the turbulent business
times, he is encouraged about several
recent inquiries about new pool con-
struction and considers it a positive
sign to start the next quarter-century.

and other revenue were
supposed to be listed.
The city sued, and later
settled by approving a
new agreement that
filled in the blanks and
extended the contract
another 25 years.
The Able Band pay-
ment comes from a "mis-

fund that saw a one-time
infusion of $2 million last
year when the city
moved from a city-run
group life and health
plan to a state-sponsored
plan.
More expenditures
In all, 27 additional
projects were funded this
year beyond the $67.7
million budget approved
last year.
Additional planning
and zoning department
projects paid for by the
reserve fund include:
$80,000 from the
reserve fund to pay for
consultants to the com-
prehensive plan.
$31,000 from the
reserve fund to pay for
consultant Slavin Man-
agement (planners).
Additional projects
paid for by the miscella-
neous revenue fund:
$158,405 to complete
sidewalk and final as-
phalt paving at Willow
Chase.
$13,925 from monies


provided by Althea's

County parks wrestle with loss of revenue


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Managers of county parks and
recreation systems in the area con-
tinue to be challenged by the need
to maintain their customary level
of service for park users, despite
decreases in revenues and county
funding.
Park system managers say they
realize the importance of free or
low-cost activities for resident
families who have suffered during
trying economic times. However,
those activities may be modified
or dropped as incorporating bud-
get cuts into an already-strained
system is likely to continue into
fiscal year 2009-10.
A poll released recently by the
Associated Press and GfK Roper
Public Affairs & Media says the
number of vacationing Americans
will be down this summer. The
survey also says 12 percent of
those planning a trip say they will
stay in their home state, 20 percent
say they will stay closer to home,
and 23 percent say they plan to
save money by staying with friends
or family instead of at a hotel.
Volunteers also are crucial to
the parks and recreation system in
Sarasota County, according to
John E McCarthy, county parks
and recreation general manager.
"It's the one area that makes
Sarasota County shine," McCarthy


said. "(They're) utilized so many
different ways they're an essen-
tial part."
McCarthy said there is only one
nonprofit group for all of the coun-
ty parks Friends of Sarasota
County Parks. FOSCP has five
committees on which members
serve, according to the group's Web
site, www.foscp.org. Three -
fundraising, grants writing and gift
giving are finance-driven. The
other committees are publication
and Web site, and local friends
groups.
Some members, who have a par-
ticular park they like to service, join
a local friends group. Others serve in
a variety of capacities. The feedback
they provide, McCarthy said,
"makes the park system better."
As an example, a few weeks ago,
the FOSCP was called upon to
assist the combined group of
county youth sports leagues in the
preparation and procedures for
writing funding grants. Other
examples of local friends group
activities include offering tours,
hosting fundraisers and helping in
local park maintenance and office
work.
Sarasota County's preliminary
property valuation will be an-
nounced Monday. A budget up-
date given earlier this year by
county officials speculated that
there would be a $29 million to
$36.5 million shortfall.


Last year, county commission-
ers utilized the county reserve
fund to bolster the budget. This
year, there are less reserve funds to
pull from.
This year's parks budget, which
was adopted at almost $19.7 mil-
lion, had a midyear adjustment
down to $19.3 million.
Next fiscal year, the parks and
recreation department has a base-
line budget of $13.1 million. Parks
maintenance by the operations
and maintenance division is bud-
geted for approximately $6.4 mil-
lion.
But not all reductions are a
result of the reorganization, he
said.
"The reality is this ... the money
is not there," McCarthy said. "(But)
we're not cutting back for the sake
of cutting back."
The parks department is con-
tending with possible reductions
from $235,913 to $1.57 million.
McCarthy said the parks and
recreation system is being evaluat-
ed constantly. Things that "don't
make sense" are abandoned.
"To me, it's more about looking
for opportunities for improve-
ment," he said. "I'm inspired by
reduced revenues. How can we do
things better?"

ti ibured to this report.

ate."
In remarks that fol-
lowed council appeared
more interested in avoid-
ing more legal battles -
that is, until City Attorney
Bob Anderson gave yet
another legal opinion on
the matter. This time it
was one to council's lik-
ing. Anderson said on
numerous occasions the
jet center had a valid
lease, which council
members were looking to
void due to more jet traf-
fic and Nadel's involve-
ment in an alleged ponzi
scheme.
Upon reflection, An-
derson said he now be-
lieves Wiand, the receiv-
er, has no standing in his
bid to force the city to
issue hangar building
permits simply to en-
hance the value of the jet
center. Wiand said he
needs the building per-
mits to maximize its
value when the jet center
is sold to settle investor
claims.
Anderson said the
current jet center and
Wiand said there are no
current plans to build the
hangars, there are no
offers before them to
purchase the jet center,
and even if there were
there's no telling if a


potential new owner
would even be interested
in building the hangars,
or if a new owner would
entertain building the
hangars in a different
location.
"It's all conjecture -
pure speculation at
this point," Anderson
said. But, he warned,
don't be surprised if you
see a Part 16 complaint
filed within the month.
While a Part 16 FAA chal-
lenge isn't technically a
lawsuit, it will require
legal experts to review
the city position and
defend it before the FAA.
With that, council vot-
ed 5-2 against rescinding
their previous action that
denied the building per-
mits. Council Members
Vicki Noren Taylor and
John Simmonds voted
against the motion.
Council members di-
rected the city attorney
and city manager to meet
with Wiand to see if there
is any common ground
left.
"It's worth talking to
him," Martin said. "May-
be we get it (a Part 16
complaint), maybe we
don't."

process
only,
but after
twice
turning
do w n
the al-
terna-
tive of
hiring a Lang
special
master to make the deci-
sion, the body decided to
"bite the bullet," as May-
or Ed Martin put it, and
order its city manager to
simply pay the bills.
City Manager Isaac
Turner at first refused be-
cause a city policy exists
that requires any expen-
diture over $100,000
receive council approval.
He said Tuesday he
would sign the checks if
council gave that order.
At first City Attorney
Bob Anderson objected
to making the payments
also, saying it would in-
flate the amount the
plaintiff, Anthony Loren-
zo, would receive when
the matter of awarding
plaintiff's attorney fees
comes before a Twelfth
Circuit Court judge in
September.
On Tuesday he chang-
ed his position and said
that was no longer a con-
cern.
Moore put up a fierce
campaign over the past


three
weeks
to con-
vince
fellow
council
mem-
bers to
pay the
private McKeon
attorney
fees, saying it was their
duty to make the deci-
sion. He also said it was
unnecessary to hire a
special master because
city code is "mandatory
and self executing" when
it comes to a require-
ment to pay legal fees
incurred by employees
and those serving on city
boards who are sued
while conducting city
business.
The policy, however,
doesn't address the issue
of paying fees for private
attorney hired by em-
ployees or board mem-
bers on their own with-
out prior approval.
Venice Neighbor-
hoods Coalition Presi-
dent Gary Budway criti-
cized council for paying
the fees. He said the city
lacks proper procedures
to protect city expendi-
tures.
Lamar Matthews, who
represented Moore, testi-
fied it was unnecessary
to pay a special master


another
$25,000
to re-
view the
fees
when
a n y
number
of attor-
n e y s Zavodnyik
could
handle the matter at little
cost. Jeff Boone, who rep-
resented Simmonds,
agreed with Matthews
and said it could be done
in a week.
Council voted down 6-
1 Council Member Vicki
Noren Taylor's original
motion to hire a special
master to analyze and
decide how much the
city should pay.
A second motion to
have an outside attorney
(Anderson called it the
same thing as a special
master an attorney
reviewing the bills) failed
on a 2-2 vote, with Ernie
Zavodnyik and Noren
Taylor voting against.
Finally Martin urged a
council vote on actually
paying the bills. It passed
3-1, with Noren Taylor
voting against and Lang,
McKeon and Zavodnyik
voting in favor.
Martin, Moore and
Simmonds abstained be-
cause of voter conflict
since each would benefit


financially from the deci-
sion, although Martin
has yet to submit his bills
which he estimated at
$20,000.
In separate action (see
related story City taps
reserves, page 1), council
passed a budget amend-
ment earlier in the day
authorizing payment of
$320,500 in attorney fees
to Hall and Anderson,
Abel Band, and Bell
Roper & Kohlmyer relat-
ed to the lawsuit (those
that weren't privately
hired by individual coun-
cil members but ap-
pointed to represent
them by the city).
They also approved
payment of $265,647 for
fishing pier litigation to
Abel Band, bringing the
day's total authorization
of attorney fees to
$886,147.
Still unsettled is re-
maining attorney fees
that have yet to be sub-
mitted, and how much
the plaintiff will ulti-
mately receive from the
city in attorney fees and
expenses.

OUR VIEW



Counties need to ensure public beach access


T he idea that seashores should
be public dates back to the an-
cient Romans, who recognized
the economic need for all citizens to
have access for fishing and naviga-
tion.
Emperor Justinian put the rights in
writing in 530 A.D., and the following
rules were established: "By the law of
nature, these things are common to
all mankind: the air, running water,
the sea and, consequently, the shores
of the sea."
The legal wrangling over that con-
cept continues to this day, according
to Erika Kranz, who wrote a Florida
Bar Journal article this month titled,
"Sand for the People, The Continuing
Controversy Over Public Access to
Florida's Beaches."
From sea to shining sea in this
country, private interests are pulling
away public rights to access while


populist movements are pushing
back. In New Jersey and Oregon,
Kranz writes, the "public trust" doc-
trine has been expanded.
Not here, though.
In Florida, the Supreme Court has
focused on case-by-case issues with-
out establishing wider or possibly
lesser public rights. The state Con-
stitution ensures access to wet por-
tions of the beach, which has created
the so-called wet-sand policy, but the
law becomes more vague the farther
you get from the water's edge. The
question of "no trespass" signs and
barriers can be tricky.
Kranz noted that the state Legis-
lature failed to pass a bill this year that
would have clearly established public
rights to the dry beach and prevented
private restrictions. In any case, Kranz
questions whether our courts would
have upheld it.


Until the state establishes broader
rights and the court OKs them, we will
continue to see the matter played out
in individual court cases. This is bad
business; it's expensive and harmful
to the public good.
We see the problem on Manasota
Key, where a motel owner has contin-
ually fought public access across the
beach in front of her property, and in
Sarasota County at Point of Rocks
beach. Most landowners willingly
share their portion of paradise, but
some will push the limits.
Sarasota County commissioners
may do something about it this year.
They recently voted to consider an
ordinance that could declare the right
to public access, prohibit private
landowners from obstructing the
public right of way and forbid "no
trespassing" signs. It's an excellent
idea, based on a code on the books in


Volusia County.
Commissioners were reluctant to
wade too far into these waters due to
the possibility of legal fights. But the
county ordinance makes sense, if for
no other reason than it establishes a
clearer guideline for law enforcement.
That has been a sticking point in
Charlotte County, where the sheriff's
office is frequently called to Manasota
Key to settle disputes. Charlotte depu-
ties have been told that citizens can sit
on the sand only if their feet are in the
water, a policy that may not even jibe
with current state law. It's confusing
and harmful at a place so reliant on
beach tourism and public recreation.
We encourage Sarasota to follow
through with an ordinance clarifying
the public's rights. Charlotte commis-
sioners need to do the same. We all
deserve sharper guidelines and clear-
er rights to a public resource.


Ideas, please


BOB VEDDER

Isaac Turner, Venice's
new city manager, is
looking for a few million
dollars to balance the
budget and needs your
help.
How would you like to
take a new job and have
as one of the first orders
of business having to cut
staff and the budget?
Wow, what a way make
friends and gain confi-
dence among employees.
To complicate the
issue, council members
would prefer to not raise
taxes, as has been the
policy for the last 15 years
or so. They would hate to
ruin the string of no
increases. Of course, they
have done a great job of
raising fees, which is
another name for taxes.
So we need to help
Isaac with some ideas.
One that seems to be
working for a lot of busi-
nesses Channel 7, for
instance is to have the
entire payroll take a 10-
percent cut in pay. That,
by the way, would in-
clude council members.
I'd guess that would solve
the problem by garnering
$5 million end of story.
If the city only did 5 per-
cent, we could get some-
thing like $2.5 million.
That way we would not
cut any services and the
employees of the city
would be treated like
most of the employees of
other businesses.
You know that all the
council members (in-
cludes the mayor, of
course) have said they
want to run the city like a
business, so here is their
chance. The union might
be a problem, but it
might rather not lose
jobs, too.
But if the city can't get
around a union chal-
lenge, then maybe it
could have all salaried
workers take off a day a
month without pay. That
is something the Gondo-
lier Sun has done for a
few months. Certainly
this would meet the citi-
zens' desires no new
taxes, no lost service.
However, those ideas
might not be feasible, so
then we have to go after
other costs. For a while


the city has talked of
going to one pick-up day
for trash and recycling, as
is done in the county. Or
maybe we should look at
contracting out trash
pick-up. It can't hurt to
get a bid.
Maybe we need to
look at consolidating fire
services with the county.
Likely there is some sav-
ing to be had there. It is
nice having our own, but
maybe in tough times
that is a luxury we cannot
afford.
We could cut services
- stop mowing medians
so often, as the county
has done. I don't think
any of us wants that.
The city could go to an
automated phone sys-
tem, as it did before. That
was a bad idea the last
time it was tried, losing
the personal service we
all want.
We could stop having
so many lawsuits that
would save us likely mil-
lions. For some reason I
don't think that is going
to happen either.
There are a lot of solu-
tions, but almost every
one of them nobody
wants to do. I would meet
with every employee
group and brainstorm
ways to cut costs. That
likely will save a lot and
involve the people who
can make change hap-
pen, making them feel
that they are a part of it.
Forward your ideas to
Isaac or me.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Pleasant memories of a cop encounter


Editor:
After reading the article by Brooky Brown about
officer Dave Aker, I recalled this same officer teaching
17 students a driving course, Basic Driver Improve-
ment.
I received a traffic ticket at a cost of $156 and was
required to attend a driving school for a fee of $25. I
was in no mood to listen to anyone telling me, a dri-
ver since 1956 with a record of no accidents for a mil-
lion-plus miles, how to drive safely. Well, Officer Aker
convinced me and the class that we had a lot to learn
about good judgment and good attitude to be a good
or better driver.
His affable and knowledgeable demeanor created
an atmosphere of learning. The film presentation,
coupled with Officer Aker's natural and astute teach-
ing ability, opened our eyes and mind to a better
understanding of good adult driving, as opposed to a
poor childlike attitude.
I'm glad I attended this course and had a most nat-
ural teacher. The acronym FIDO (forget it, drive on)
will be unforgettable and perhaps save lives.
This course would be beneficial for all drivers more
than 70 years of age. The city coffers would be
enhanced and driving citations reduced.
Venice High and the Venice police are very lucky to
have an invaluable teacher and officer.
Keep up the good work, Officer Dave Aker.

Play by the
rules or leave
Editor:
If you are going to stay
here, start observing our
current traffic laws. I'm
sure they are similar to
your laws up north.
Here are the dos and
don't:
Stop for red lights,
stop signs and pedestri-
ans in all crosswalks.
Pedestrians, stop jay-
walking and use the
crosswalks; they are there
for your convenience
and safety. And stop cut-
ting through the center
median plantings; they
can only take so much
abuse. Isn't that why
you're here, because of
the ambience? Please
keep it that way for your
next visit.


Drivers, start observ-
ing the "Slow traffic keep
right" signs on the U.S. 41
throughway (no matter
what your speed is). And
those solid white lines at
the intersections mean
stay in your lane. It's the
law. I don't think even the
DOT is aware of it. Re-
gardless, if you have solid
white lines on either side,
or both, you must stay
there.
And for heaven's sake,
if you are using your
lane-change signal (which
is rare indeed), it does
not give you license to
cut someone off (which
happens all too often).
And you know what to do
with that distracting cell
phone.
If none of this im-
presses you, you can go

Earmarks are
financial poison
Editor:
I noted with interest
the back and forth re-
garding Rep. Vern Bu-
chanan.
Though the arrogance
of the Dems allowing no
debate on not even
reading the multi-tril-
lion-dollar stimulus bill
loaded with 9,000 pork-
stuffed earmarks and
then the $410 billion
continuing resolution
containing another 8,500
earmarks, is reprehensi-
ble, I would ask Mr. Bu-
chanan if he had any ear-
mark pork in either of the
bills regardless of how he
voted.
An article written by
Jon Thaxton and Larry
Allen indicated "that ear-
marks help fund badly
needed local projects,"
patting Mr. Buchanan on
the back for his efforts in
getting the listed ear-
marks.
No cost estimates
were provided and the
projects at best seemed
to be of the "would be
nice to have if we had the
money" type.
A member of Con-
gress recently said it best:
"These earmarks are for
things we don't really
need to be paid for with
money we don't have."
Irresponsible spend-
ing earmarks, the
business-as-usual, "you
scratch my back, I'll
scratch yours" system -
is the reason Congress is


bankrupting us, our chil-
dren and our grandchil-
dren and their children
with, according to the
Congressional budget
office, multi-trillion dol-
lar debt.
Who can defend ear-
marks hidden in bills
and undebated shame-
fully driving our once
great country to its
knees?

Bicycles are vehicles, too

Stop it. I would like to make a comment about all
the bicyclists who are complaining. I live on South
Venice Boulevard not far from Heron Road, and there
is a stop sign on that street. I've seen 17 to 20 bicyclists
that don't stop there. They fly through and don't even
bother looking to see if somebody is coming at them.
So what's going to happen? Are drivers going to be
charged if they hit one of these bicyclists? It's just not
right. As they say to the drivers, if there's stop sign,
they should stop. The law is the same for bicyclists.
EDITOR'S NOTE: A bicyclist was killed in South Venice
June 6 because, according to a police report, he ran a red
light at Alligator Drive and rode into the path of an oncom-
ing vehicle on U.S. 41.

Florida instead of their

Clean it up. I've lived
in this area since 1956
and never have we had
the thing we have today
- a three-person coali-
tion running the city of
Venice. In that coalition,
they're not doing what
they're required to do, to
start with. So what hap-
pens with that some-
one comes in and sues
them. The attorneys want
their money at $2.5 mil-
lion and another thing in
the city of Venice is com-
ing in at $2.5 million,
which makes it $5 mil-
lion stuck on your tax
rolls.
We've got enough
people who have just
about lost their home
and they don't need this.
There should not be a
coalition in this thing. We
need to do something to
clean this up. The best
thing to do is that they
should leave and pay some
of their bills as they go.

school. Venice High, for
instance, has lost one of
its very capable assistant
principals, LaShawn
Houston. Luckily, she is
being placed at another
school. Venice likely will
lose 100 kids this year,
which translates to sever-
al teachers and, likely,
support staff.
On the good news
side, Venice High had
more kids graduate from
the new Ready to Work
program than any other
high school. This is a tes-
tament to being at the
cutting edge, as it has
been with Small Learn-
ing Communities.

I was glad to see the
Venice Taxpayers League
come out against paying
the legal fees of those
council members and
others who chose not to
be represented by the
city's attorneys. That fits
its main mission, to save
the city's money.
If I were John Moore, I
would likely not ask for
full reimbursement but
at the amount the city
attorney charges. Instead
of $250 an hour, which
his attorney cost, I would
ask for $175, as the city
attorney charges.
While I don't agree
with paying, this is what I
would do to compro-
mise. This approach has
more logic to it than ask-
ing for whatever rate an
attorney charges. Why
not $400 an hour? Where
does it stop?

As the city begins its

entities, businesses and
individuals, it looks for
ways to sustain its busi-
ness through a difficult

For the past month,

complish their goals with
less funding.

business. Some fly for a
living for the airlines or
charter companies.
Some are students
learning their art. Some
look upon aviation as a
hobby.
By far, the vast majori-
ty of us fly for one over-
riding reason in a
word, freedom.
There's an old saying:
"Build a mile of road and
you can go a mile; build a
mile of airport runway
and you can go any-
where." It's absolutely
true.
Did you know that a
typical mid-level single
engine airplane can carry


plete the task of develop-
ing a recommended bud-
get for city council's con-
sideration, to be deliv-
ered in July. In August,
Venice City Council will
begin its budget work-
shops. Public hearings
will take place in Sep-
tember, with a balanced
budget approved by the
beginning of the next fis-
cal year on Oct. 1.
With taxable values
continuing to diminish
by more than 13 percent
and revenues less than
what they have been in
past years, this will be no
easy process.
Obvious options to
achieve a balanced bud-
get include reducing ex-
penditures, raising taxes
(and other revenue), re-
ducing services and re-
ducing personnel. Sev-
enty-seven percent of the
general budget is person-
nel-related. After all, ser-
vice is what the city pro-
vides.
I have asked all em-


four people and bags the
equivalent of 225 road
miles in one hour on
about 15 gallons of gas?
That's about 15 road
miles per gallon.
More important to the
pilot and his passengers
is the saving in time -
one hour in the airplane
versus three-plus hours
by car ... each way.
All of this freedom
does necessitate an air-
port, just as a road trip
necessitates highways,
interchanges and the at-
tendant infrastructure.
That's why the Venice
Municipal Airport is so
important to those of us


ployees to participate by
suggesting ways we can
reduce expenditures. No
one has suggested that
increasing taxes or re-
ducing services is an
answer.
Unfilled positions con-
tinue to be scrutinized
for elimination. While
layoffs are possible, the
city is aware that layoffs
affect the entire commu-
nity because each indi-
vidual salary is circulated
multiple times in the lo-
cal community before it
goes outside the com-
munity.
As you can see, there
are no easy solutions.
The staff is looking
forward to the challenge
of balancing these con-
cerns, while finding cre-
ative ways to continue to
provide the citizens of
Venice with the best pos-
sible municipal services.
We invite your participa-
tion in this exercise.
Isaac Turner is Venice's
city manager


who are working to pre-
serve this iconic Venetian
landmark for future gen-
erations.
The next time you
happen by the airport or
see an airplane landing
or taking off, think about
why we fly.
Like I said, it's about
freedom. Come to think
of it, isn't that what the
United States of America
is all about?

SConfusion ends Lawyers' season

Have rod,


will travel

School's out and the
young fishermen know the
secret spots.
If you see them with lures
attached, they probably are
going to get on a trail or go to
an out-of-the-way pond,
slough, creek or lake.
A friend rode his bicycle
nearly 2 miles looking for one
of these spots the other day
and found a slough off of the
Myakka River but didn't have
his fishing rod. What he saw
were keeper mangrove snap-
pers and huge largemouth
bass. He said some bass were
probably double digit.
It was a low tide and he
guessed the reds and snook
go there with the rising
incoming tide. I think I'm a
bit too old for the long ride,
especially if a strong storm
comes. He said he plans on
going again and will fillet the
fish on the spot.
This made me think about
how many times I've seen
young fishermen on their
bicycles with fishing outfits.
The problem is, most of the
time they keep their fishing
spots a secret as they go on
posted ponds and lakes.
They know that the worst
thing that can happen is get-
ting kicked off. If it were us,
we would have some prob-
lems.
In February, a young fish-
erman told me about a huge
sheepshead he caught, but it
was on private property in a
creek in Port Charlotte. He
knew the owner but couldn't
get permission for me to go
with him. After sending me a
few pictures, I could see they
were big sheepies.
Oh, to be 17 again.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Confusion and drama took
center stage during County
Cup action on Monday at Twin
Lakes Park in Sarasota.
The Lawyers, who are
Venice's lone survivor in the
Little League Tournament,
were scheduled to play the
Rays of North Port at 7 p.m. in
the sixth round of the consola-
tion bracket.
Rain early in the day had the
fields underwater so Lawyers
manager Troy Gager tried to
find out if the game was still on.
After not getting in touch
with anyone, Gager called
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation, which maintains
the fields.
"I called Sarasota County
Parks and Recreation and was
told by David Worden (opera-
tions manager) that the fields
were unplayable and closed,"
Gager said.
Gager has an e-mail con-
firming this fact.
"I checked their (Central
Sarasota County Little League)
Web site and they didn't have
anything about a postpone-
ment so I kept checking it,"
Gager said. "When I didn't see
anything, I called a coach from
the North Port Twins to see if
the Rays were heading here.
This was at 6:30 and he said
they were headed to Twin
Lakes. I drove up to see if they
were playing and found out
they were so I called all the kids
on our team."
After getting mixed infor-
mation, the Lawyers scram-
bled at 6:45 p.m. to put a team
together.
Tournament officials gave
the Lawyers until 8 p.m.
Monday to get their team ready
to play. When not enough play-
ers showed up to field a team, a
forfeit was ruled.
"It's just tough this late in the
tournament," said County Cup
director Steve St. Pierre, who
also updates the Web site. "It
stinks. I wish again they would-
n't have called the county. I cer-
tainly see both sides of it."
With parents and players
crying, Lawyers manager Troy
Gager protested the decision.
"I think it is really unfair,"
Gager said. "They (CSCLL) told
me Parks and Rec can't close
the fields here but they can
close them in Venice."
"Generally for our games we
tell them to check our Web
site," St. Pierre said. "The coun-

ty apparently said they closed
the fields. They never contact-
ed us to tell us they were closed.
We came out here and they
weren't lined or anything so we
did it."
Gager had his players ready
to play on Tuesday against the
Rays but that idea was
squashed.
CSCLL president Tim Cava-
naugh left the decision to play
up to the Rays coach, whether
he wanted to play the Lawyers
or receive the forfeit and play
the next round.


"He told me if I could get
the Rays coach to play (on
Tuesday) then they would play
it," Gager said. "I called the
Rays manager and he said, 'I
don't want to play you.'"
Lucille Vaillancourt-Kreider,
who according to Gager is
Worden's boss, spoke to league
officials late Tuesday in an
attempt to persuade them to
allow the Lawyers to play since
the fields were supposed to be
closed and the teams played
(Monday) without county per-
mission.

Cavanaugh told her the
decision was made and they
weren't going to let the Lawyers
play.
The decision has players on
the Lawyers upset and disap-
pointed.
"They (the kids) are all
bummed out," said Gager, who
said his phone has been ring-
ing constantly. "Half of our
team is 12-year-olds and to
have their last game end in a
forfeit is not right. What is this
teaching the kids?"
Lawyers 7,
Coastal Properties 5
The Lawyers scored four
runs in the third inning to over-
come a 3-1 deficit en route to a
7-5 win over Coastal Properties
of Englewood on Saturday
afternoon in the consolation
bracket fifth round at Twin
Lakes Park in Sarasota.
The Lawyers, the only Venice
team left in the County Cup,
took a 1-0 lead in the first
inning. With two outs, Tyler
Rickert was hit by a pitch. Noah
McClennahan singled up the
middle to move Rickert to third
base. A wild pitch scored
Rickert.
Coastal Properties grabbed a
3-1 lead by scoring three runs
in the bottom of the first
inning. With one out, two bat-
ters walked off Lawyers pitcher
Ruben Velez. Christian Kunkle

dren with three business-
es to run and the will to
succeed no matter what.
Using his father as an
example, Dexter decided
to redo his life.
Even if he could never
work again, he still want-
ed to cut his dependency
on pain medications as
much as he could, be-
cause of the side effects,
and to regain some qual-
ity of life.
He was 45 when he
reinvented himself.
While he would likely
never play a full round of
golf again, he didn't want
to waste his knowledge of
the game. He came up
with the Dave Dexter, Get
Down in Two School for
youngsters.
"The kids think the
driver is king," he said.
He set up a putting
course in his front and
side yards and, for a
donation to another of
his many projects, he
teaches children how to
be successful putters.
Unable to do anything
for very long, Dexter has
several interests that

ON THE ROAD AGAIN TOURS


occupy his mind, give
him some much-needed
exercise and accomplish
some good.
Doing something good
for others is what that
other project is all about.
He wants to start a Lionel
Train museum at St. Jude
Children's Research Hos-
pital in Memphis, Tenn.
Do unto others
"That was my father's
No. 1 charity," Dexter
said. "Phase one is to get
Lionel collectors to do-
nate trains." Then he
hopes they and others
will contribute to the cost
of creating a space at the
hospital where the trains
can be set up for young
patients to enjoy them.
He spends hours on
the computer working


on that project.
Still, there are times
when he cannot sit at the
computer or even walk
around his small putting
area and must be in bed
resting because of the
medications and the
constant pain.
Even confined to bed
for a few hours, he man-
ages to accomplish things.
His house has several mir-
ror frames he has created
from sea shells friends
have brought to him.
Music soothes
the soul
And most of all, there
is his music and his gui-
tars. He fashions decora-
tive guitars, which he
sells on the Internet. He
also plays guitar, sings
and writes songs. He has


played guitar since he
was a youngster, encour-
aged by his father, al-
though at that time his
father told him to find
something else to do to
earn money.
His first CD, "Dave
Dexter, My Words, My
Music," came out this
past year and has been
selling around the
world, thanks to the In-
ternet.
"It has gone global,"
he said with pride.
The music and the
CDs are made in his for-
mer garage turned re-
cording studio. Dexter
said he has received a lot
of help from Troll Music
in Venice in promoting
his guitars and music.
The company even sells
his CDs for him. Another


a-,


friend taught him about
selling on eBay.
"We all have our cross-
es to bear," he said. "Man
plans and God laughs. My
advice to those dealing
with pain is to find some-
thing else to occupy your
mind."
Retired on a Veterans
Affairs pension and lim-
ited in what he can earn,
as well as being physi-
cally limited, Dexter
practices what he
preaches.
Heal thyself
Because of the acci-
dent and living in con-
stant pain for the past 14
years, Dexter has learn-
ed to live in a way he
never planned.
He has learned to set
the alarm for 3 a.m. to


take a pain pill so that
when he gets up a few
hours later he won't be in
quite so much pain.
He's learned that just
because one is physically
disabled, it is no reason
to give up.
"You cannot transfer
pain," he said. "Your
family and friends will
never understand how
bad it is and why it can't
be fixed.
"Your doctor's job is to
help you manage the
pain. Your job is to find a
way to live productively
with the pain."
He hopes to inspire
others to follow his ex-
ample.

Blood bank awards student scholarships


FROM SUNCOAST
COMMUNITIES BLOOD BANK

Suncoast Communities Blood
Bank recognizes outstanding high
school blood donors and student
volunteers by awarding annual
scholarships.
In May, the blood bank present-
ed $13,500 in scholarship funds to
21 students from area high schools
for postsecondary education.
A committee composed of
blood bank and community lead-
ers selected students based on
participation in their high school's
blood drives, support of the blood
bank, academic excellence and
commitment to the community.
Sarasota Military Academy
earned the distinguished Com-
mand Performance Fund awarded
by Century Bank and received a
$3,000 check. This award recog-
nizes the one school in Sarasota
and DeSoto counties with the
highest percentage increase in
donor registrations over the previ-
ous school year.
SMA was also recognized on the
state level by the Florida Asso-
ciation of Blood Banks for con-
tributing the most blood dona-
tions during the 2008 school year
in the category of 150 or less
seniors, for the second consecu-
tive year.
This year, local high school
donors increased blood drive reg-
istrations 24 percent more than
than last year. High school stu-
dents in this region account for
nearly 10 percent of our blood
supply, similar to high school
donors nationally.
SCBB invests considerable ef-
fort in recruiting high school stu-
dents because they have a lifetime
of blood donation opportunities.
Studies show that individuals who
are introduced to the importance
of donating blood at a young age
are more likely to become a donor
for life.


PHOTO COURTESY OF SUNCOAST COMMUNITIES BLOOD BANK
Bill Albanese, left, senior vice president at Century Bank, presents a $3,000
check from the bank to Sarasota Military Academy recipients Sarah Johnston
and Nichols LeBoutillier, and Col. Bill Brockman, who is also a Suncoast
Communities Blood Bank board director. The check represents the one school
in the Sarasota County School District with the greatest percentage increase in
donor registrations over the previous school year.


"We are honored and humbled
to receive the Command Per-
formance Fund for two consecu-
tive years, said Col. Bill Brockman,
blood drive coordinator for SMA
and SCBB board director. "We
strive to instill civic duty in our stu-
dents. We are proud of their
incredible lifesaving efforts to the
community."
The following students received
scholarships based on the 2008-
2009 school year: Pine View
School: Chris Goldstein and Ken-
neth William Newton II; Sarasota
Military Academy: Sarah Johnston
and Nicholas LeBoutillier; and
Venice High School: Meridith
Meerman and Mary Dembinski.
Having won the $3,000 Com-
mand Performance Award, SMA


chose to donate the award to one
of its scholarship recipients and
gave it to LeBoutillier, according to
Julie Platt, SCBB public relations
and marketing manager.
Serving on the 2009 selection
committee were Elmer Berkel, for-
mer mayor of Sarasota and SCBB
volunteer; Charles Ball, attorney
and SCBB board director; Platt;
Joanne Sergo, SCBB senior ac-
count executive; and Sherri Reyn-
olds, supervisor of pupil support
services for the Sarasota County
School District and SCBB board
director.

opment, at 954-1600, ext. 1033, or

VI While' ""-
most people
with back pain
can point to a specific
event or series of actions
that led to their pain, some
might wonder if genetics
might play a role. With this in
mind, researchers recently
examined 300 sets of male twins
who reported different risk
factors for back pain. For
instance, one twin might have had
a sedentary job while the other was
involved with heavy lifting.
Researchers found that despite
differences in risk, many of the twin
brothers both had back pain.
Moreover, shared back pain was
found to be most prevalent among
identical twins, who have the same
DNA. These findings led the
researchers to believe that back
pain may have a genetic
component.
P.S. A comprehensive assessment
of a patient's spine can help
identify factors that could give
rise to back pain as well as point
to treatment and strategies for
averting pain.

league team. In the fall, he will attend
Santa Fe Community College in
Gainesville to major in sports market-
ing.
Atamanchuk is the son of Donald

represent District 70 in the Con-
gressional Art Show in Washington,
D.C., where it will be displayed at the
U.S. Capitol for one year.

FARLEY FUNERAL HOME

t is an honor to recognize one of the Venice area's oldest family owned
and operated businesses as the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce's
Business of the Month Award recipient.
Farley Funeral Home, a loyal Chamber member since 1962, was lauded
recently by a local family that suffered the loss of a family member. A letter
:o the Chamber's Education & Business Development Committee was
selected for the award.
"I wanted to express my sincere gratitude about Farley Funeral Home
for taking such excellent care of me and my family during a very difficult
time upon the death of my husband. Eric Swope was very kind and
professional during the process of making the arrangements and followed
through efficiently easing me and my daughter thought the steps as gently
as possible. Dawn Thompson was especially warm and compassionate in
supplying me with after care with a special visit at my home. She felt like
ane of my best friends assisting me through the very difficult and emotional
period. It takes special people to do their line of work and everyone I
encountered at Farley Funeral Home exceeded the expectations of their
profession. The Farley family truly treats you like you were a member of
their family with warmth and compassionate care."
Farley Funeral Home is located at 265 Nokomis Avenue on the Venice
island.

In love with 'Fools'
You have until June 14 to
catch "Why Do Fools Fall in
Love?" at the Venice Theatre's


Cabaret with an outstanding
cast of four young women
who will thoroughly enter-
tain you with songs of the
'60s.
Venice Theatre "old timers"
Lauren Kelly and Emily
Mounce Mounce is 16 -
are veterans of the theater's
education and outreach pro-
grams; Brooke Kirsch and
Caitlin Longstreet are relative
newcomers to Venice Theatre.
They all wowed the audience
with their voices, dancing and
acting. Don't miss this show!
Call 488-1115 for ticket infor-
mation.


VAC volunteer Rita Yannotti shows off
the new aprons and T-shirts being sold
to benefit the art center.


Brooke Kirsch (Dee Dee) and Caitlin
Longstreet (Flo) celebrate after opening night
of "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?"


Three generations share a hug following "Why Do Fools Fall in
Love?" at the Venice Theatre. Mom Linda Mounce, left, hugs her
daughter Emily, who
played Millie,
while grand-
mother Joan
Mangold hugs
from the
right.


Lauren Kelly rocked in her role as Sally,
the cynic of the group, with her awe-
some voice and talent for comedy in
"Why Do Fools Fall in Love?"


Brooke Kirsch receives congratulations from "Why Do
Fools Fall in Love?" musical director Jason Brenner
after the show.

Theater is not over
for the summer
It's summer in Florida. Years
ago, that meant most
everything was closed for the
season. A storeowner once told
me that back in the 1960s when
she opened her store, "every-
body in town" closed for the
summer.
Times have changed. While a
few restaurants close on
Monday during the summer,
there is even a full theater
schedule.
Last week I reviewed "Late
Nite Catechism" Thursday night
at Sarasota's Golden Apple, the
Broadway show "Souvenir" in
the Mertz Theatre at the FSU
Center for the Performing Arts
on Friday and "Marvelous
Party" Saturday night on the
Keating mainstage at Florida
Studio Theatre. Is it any wonder
my car finds its way to Sarasota
practically by itself?
This week I return to Sarasota
for The Players production of
Shakespeare's "Taming of the
Shrew" on Thursday night and
then spend Friday night in
Venice at the opening of the
annual Loveland Center/Venice
Theatre collaborative produc-
tion of The Loveland Follies. If
you have never seen that show,
call 941-488-1115 to order your
tickets. Read more about that
show inside this week's edition
of Let's Go. Then go see for
yourself. Featuring develop-
mentally challenged adults from
Loveland, the show has been in
rehearsal since October. It will
entertain, amaze and thrill you
even as it energizes and thrills
its cast and crew.
Talk about a sign of more
good things to come the
Loveland Follies is all that
and more.
Welcome to the summer
season of theater on the
Cultural Coast of Florida.

Keeping 'all that jazz' alive


Let's Go! Page 3


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Outside the expansive
glass windows of the
Captain's Table lounge at
Fishermen's Village in
Punta Gorda, the sun was
its final throws, casting
the last of its colors
through the darkening
sky. The lights of the
Peace River Bridge
reflected off the panes,
and in the distance, one
could see boats returning
to safe harbor.
Inside the lounge,
candles flickered inside
sconces and patrons
quietly chatted as Bob
Hanson sat on his stool
holding his Artcore
Ibanez electric guitar. He
closed his eyes and
rhythmically swayed as
he became absorbed by
the smooth melody. The
Captain's Table, Hanson
said, is the perfect place
to be on a Friday or
Saturday night if you love
what Hanson refers to as,
"The truest American art
form," -jazz.
Hanson's love affair
with the music of Les


Paul, Kenny Burrell, John
Coltrane, Count Basie,
and Joe Pass, began in his


youth, as
jazz music
broke the
sound

that now when I play."

play the
washtub
bass," he
said. "That
was every
Sunday as
long as I can
remember,"
he said.
Those days
set the scene
for a life that
has always
had music in
it, even after
being drafted
into the U.S.
Army in
Korea.


"I traveled all over the
Far East in a group
called The Statesmen."
After he was dis-
charged, Hanson, who
has worked with such
musical legends as Dion
and the Belmonts, then
seriously pursued his love
of jazz. When asked why
jazz appealed to him so
much, he said, "You have
to have something up
here to play that stuff," he
said, pointing to his head,
adding that you not only
think when you play jazz,
but you feel it as well.
He then spent time
doing the jazz circuit and
joined the Minnesota
band the Flames, who, in
1958, experienced
success with their hit
song "Arabian Caravan,"
Hanson said. "We sold a
couple of hundred
thousand copies on the
Gaiety record label," he
said, adding that in 1991,
he was inducted into the
Minnesota Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame for his
accomplishments.


Hanson, a retired
Teamster truck driver,
relocated to Port Char-
lotte from Minnesota
eight years ago and now
has the time, he said, to
dedicate to his passion
for making music. He
and the band members of
the Bob Hanson Trio,
drummer Bob Ryan, and
bass player Bob Gook,
began to get jazz gigs in
the area and six months
ago, the trio became the
house band for the
Captain's Table.
On any given Friday or
Saturday night, he and
his band not only enter-
tain locals that come out
each week to hear the
band play, but also often
invite some members of
crowd to come up and
perform. "If we know
them and know they have
talent, we love for them
to come up and do a song
or two with us."
"We are not slouch
players," he said. "We all
love what we do and we
do our best to do it well,"
he said.
"Part of why we do this,
besides playing the music
we love," he said, "is to
help keep jazz alive.
There aren't that many
places people can go to
hear jazz," he said,
adding that he would like
to be part of a jazz
revival. He would like to
see a yearly jazz festival
in Punta Gorda or Port
Charlotte each year that
could showcase local
musicians and a big
name act and he is
willing to work to help
bring that to fruition.
"I don't play jazz just
for me I play for those
who love it, and when I


play, I put my whole
heart and soul into it," he
said, adding it's one's
heart and soul that jazz
appeals to and it is that
experience he wants for
those who come and to
hear the trio each Friday
and Saturday night. "This


is the best gig in town -
I mean, just look at that
view," he said motioning
out the giant glass
window behind him.
"I am living the dream,"
Hanson said. "I live in
paradise and get to play
jazz."

that has just enough
plot and, as a bonus,
several comedy scenes.
New kid on the block


Brooke Kirsch (DeeDee)
was responsible for
some of the funniest
moments in the open-
ing night show, some-
times for her facial
expressions and other
times for well, you
need to see for yourself.
Caitlin Longstreet
(Florence) is back for
the second time at
Venice Theatre. She has
a good voice and fine
stage presence.
Completing the


foursome were Venice
Theatre veterans Emily
Mounce (Millie) and
Lauren Kelly (Sally).
Mounce is just plain
cute with the bonus of
a good voice. She didn't
miss a beat, even while
choking on onion rings.
That was another one
of the funny schticks in
this must-see show.
Kelly simply lights up
the stage. Her voice
would be enough but


act and has great
timing for comedy. She
was shedding real tears
in the scene there that
was appropriate. The
good news for the rest
of us is that she hopes
to make a career in
theater.
Venice Theatre
regularly does cabaret
shows and most are
usually pretty good.
"Fools" is in a class by
itself. It is that good,


she also can move and mostly because these


four girls are that good,
working together and
balancing each other
beautifully.
Allan Kollar directed
and designed the set.
Jason Brenner was the
show's music director
and Donna Culbreath did
the choreography, which
was right out of the '60s
and '70s with the
Mashed Potato, the
Twist and even some
Charleston steps, as that
made a brief comeback


in that era.
"Why Do Fools Fall in
Love" plays through
Sunday. Tickets are
$24 per person. Venice
Theatre is at 140 W
Tampa Ave., on the
island in downtown
Venice. The box office
is open daily from
10 a.m.to 5 p.m. and
Saturday from 10 a.m.
to 1 p.m. Call

A view behind the curtain


By JOHN MAGNIN
PRESIDENT OF CHARLOTTE
COUNTY NONPROFITS, INC.
She was a cute,
painfully shy nine year
old girl, who could
barely find the courage
to speak, even with
those she knew quite
well. In an attempt to
help her open up, a
relative invited her to a
youth theater workshop,
presented by the Char-
lotte Players. Reluctant-
ly, the young girl agreed
to attend. It was a
decision that changed
her life.
Over the past five
years, she has remained
active with the theatrical
group and has been
successful in several
plays. Recently, she


auditioned at the Burt
Reynolds Institute for
Film & Theatre, in
Jupiter, Fla.
Acting gave her the
freedom of expression
and the confidence to
speak and interact with
others.
Charlotte Players, a
nonprofit organization,
began producing
community theater over
49 years ago. In 2005,
Sherrie Moody took the
helm and became the
organization's first
executive director.
Staging a successful
theater production
requires the commit-
ment of a large number
of people. The Charlotte
Players rely heavily on a
dedicated group of over


400 volunteers. Some
have served the organi-
zation more than 20
years.
Producing a play can
also be an expensive
venture. Moody states
that production costs
typically range between
$8,000 and $40,000, with
musicals being at the
higher end.
While attendance has
remained strong,
Charlotte Players must
rely on more than ticket
sales to cover expenses.
The Players are able to
produce quality theater
because of generous
donations and commer-
cial sponsorships.
The group's fifth and
final play of this season,
"Catch Me If You Can,"


will be performed May
22-30 at the Cultural
Center. Auditions for
The Nerd, their first play
of the 2009-2010 season
will begin in mid-
August.
Moody invites both
experienced and inexpe-
rienced actors to audi-
tion for the various parts
and, of course, volun-
teers are always needed
and appreciated for
"behind-the-scene"
positions as well. There
is something for every-
one interested in the-
ater.
Charlotte Players will
hold a two-week Theater
Workshop for Kids
(grades 2-12), June 15-
28, culminating with
productions performed

'Shrew' sizzles at The Players Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Continuing to broaden
the offerings of The
Players Theatre, its
artistic director Jeffrey
Kin selected Shake-
speare's "The Taming of
the Shrew" for the first
presentation in the
theater's Summer Sizzler
Series. It will be offered
June 11-13 at the theater.
Kin introduced the
new series and more
summer offerings last
year. The series features
three plays, which are
presented in relatively


short runs over the
summer to give year-
round residents and
summer visitors some
additional theatrical
choices. Theater buffs
have welcomed the
series as much for the
fact that it adds to the
summer season as for
the fact that it is a break
from the all-musical
format that had been a
Players tradition.
The story concerns
Petrucio and his
betrothed, Kate, who
gives new meaning to the
term "headstrong." The


story and characters are
classic and timeless.
There are mistaken
identities, disguises and
other red herrings to
tantalize viewers as the
love story moves along.
There also are elements
that some would consid-
er controversial. The
show was the inspiration
for "Kiss Me Kate," the
Cole Porter musical.
"Shrew" will be directed
by Richard LeVene, with
Barry Look as Petruchio
and Judy Phelan as Kate.
Performances will be at
8 p.m.Thursday Saturday


and at 2 p.m. Sunday.
"Wit," by Margaret
Edson, is the second
Sizzler production. It will
run July 9-12 and be
followed by the Jenny
Beres comedy, "hay Day"
July 23-26.
Also coming up this
summer is the Got-a-
Minute Play Festival.
When you order tickets
for the Sizzler series, ask
about tickets for the one-
minute plays.
The theater is at 838
North Tamiami Trail.
Tickets for "The Taming
of the Shrew" are $18 for


See Florida International Museum in a new light


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
When art museums
share their collections
with each other, everyone
wins.
Until Oct. 4, visitors to
the Florida International
Museum in St. Petersburg
will have a unique
opportunity.
For the first time, more
than 125 large works of art
from the Gulf Coast
Museum of Art in Largo
will be shown in one
place. Because of the size
of the art works, that
museum was only able to
show a few at a time.
Many have not been seen
for years because of the


space limitations at the
Largo museum.
This show has been
named "In a New Light"
because the works are
being shown in a new
location, or literally, "in a
new light." In addition to
work by Tampa Bay artists
Theo Wujcik and Duncan
McClellan, the show
features work by photog-
rapher Clyde Butcher of
Venice and other world-
famous artists such as
Miria Shapiro, Sam
Gilliam and George
Inness, more than 125 in
all and all from the
Southeastern part of the
United States. The
collection takes up


virtually the entire FIM
exhibition space.
That the show seems to
coincide with other FIM
news was almost hidden
within the show's press
release about the show
but confirmed by a call to
Rob Sumner who has
been the marketing
person for FIM for several
years.
Since the FIM moved to
its present location about
two years ago, it has been
located within the St.
Petersburg Downtown Art
Center, which is part of St.
Petersburg College.
Within the last couple
of months, FIM was
absorbed into the college,


Sumner said.
"The Smithsonian
connection is still there,"
he said. "The traveling
exhibitions will still come
to the museum."
The museum was dark
for a short time but the
lights went on
again for the current
show, which will be
followed sometime in
October by Rocky Moun-
tain Quilts, a traveling that
will remain at the FIM for
a few months.

town St. Petersburg.

Universal rocks summer with new concert series


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
There is more to
Universal Orlando that
thrill rides and theme
hotels.
Saturday through July 4,
the Orlando resort will
offer live Saturday night
concert performances of
such big names as LL
Cool J, Jordin Sparks and
others in its new Music
Plaza venue.
Befitting the new stage
area, Universal went for
gold gold-record
earning, chart-topping
performers to open the
new venue. Million-
album seller Jordin
Sparks will kick off the
series June 13.
LL Cool J, who has had
20 singles on the chart,
will perform June 20,
followed the next Satur-
day, June 28 by Natasha
Bedingfield of Great
Britain. She has sold
more than 10 million
albums on both sides of
the Atlantic. Wrapping
the series with a July 4
concert is the hall of
Fame group, the O'Jays.
Household names, the
performers offer some-
thing for nearly every taste
in the pop music realm.
The new venue is being


billed by the folks at
Universal as a "state-of-
the-art outdoor music
venue." Its official
opening as a concert
venue was during
Universal's Mardi Gras
celebration in February
and March. A Universal
spokesman said the
design was inspired by
the famous Hollywood
Bowl, which has been
one of the top music
venues on the west coast
for decades. Guests
gather on a 15,000
square-foot viewing lawn
in front of the 2,400-
square-foot stage. Two
20-foot tall projection
screens add impact and
facilitate viewing for all,
even those in the very
back.
Concerts are free with
regular park admission.
Spend the day in the
park and when totally
dizzy from too coaster
rides or in pain from
laughing at the Cat in
the Hat, unwind at a
nighttime concert
in the Music Plaza.
To really make a
weekend of it, spend
the night at one of
those theme hotels. The
most appropriate
choice would be the


Hard Rock but the
rooms and food at the
Portofino Bay Hotel and
Royal Pacific Resort are
in the same league -
excellent.
Staying in any of these
hotels includes several
perks such as front of
the line access on rides
and handy access to the
parks and shopping
areas of Universal, by
either boat or walkway.
Such a plan is even
better for Florida
residents who purchase
the 2-Park Annual
Power Pass, which gives
passholders admission
to Universal islands of
Adventure and Univer-
sal Studios all year long
for about the price of
two daytime theme-
park tickets.
The Florida Resident
2-Night Vacation Pack-
age includes 2-day/2-
park admission plus two
nights at a hotel near
Universal for $69 per
person, per-night. That
rate does not include the
on-site Lowes Hotels
although they can be
included for an addition-
al cost. That front-of-the-
line access could be well
worth the cost increase
for avid riders. The

FEATURES EDITOR
Each year, Florida
Studio Theatre's Young
Playwright's Festival
grows in stature even as
the number of entries
increase. This year there
were 3,384 submissions
from more than 5,400
playwrights.
For many, the biggest
thrill is to see his or her
play produced profes-
sionally.
More than 300 winners
traveled to Sarasota from
as far away as Vladimir,
Russia and Dunfermline,
Scotland for the May 16
award ceremony. As
Dunfermline is a sister
city to Sarasota, this is
not the first time entries
have come from there.
Festival coordinator
Adam Ratner said the
student efforts ranged


from farces to serious
dramas.
FST Artistic Director
Richard Hopkins and
Associate Director Kate
Alexander presided at the
award program, which
also honored involved
educators and foreign
dignitaries who have long
supported what has
become an international
program over the 17 years
of its existence. Alexander
is the festival's director.
Two categories receive
plays from students in
grades K-6 while those in


seventh grade and above
enter Seven Up. This
year's winners in that
category included
students from Scotland,
Israel, Russia and China,
an FST spokesman said.
Children are encour-
aged to write about any
topic that interests them.
More than 1 million
children have been
involved in some way,
either writing plays,
attending plays presented
by the Playmaker's Tour
or by participating in
classroom workshops

'Camp Broadway' is this year's Loveland Follies _i Hok


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Few shows are ever
more heart-warming than
the annual Loveland
Follies, a collaborative
effort of Loveland Center
and Venice Theatre.
Loveland students and
theater volunteers begin
rehearsals each October
for the annual show
which is presented on the
theater's mainstage and
nearly always sells out its
three performances.
Fortunately there are no
bad seats at Venice
Theatre, except possibly
the back row of the
balcony for those who are
very tall.
This year, performances
of "Camp Broadway," an
original show devised for
Loveland, will be at 7 p.m.
Friday and Saturday and


at 2 p.m.
Sunday.
Suitable for
all ages, the
always
entertaining
show will
feature music
from Broad-
way sung
enthusiasti-
cally as always
by the
Loveland


Help the Follies
A total of $300,000 is
needed to assure that the
Loveland Follies contin-
ue. Contributions to an
endowment fund are
invested. Earnings are
used to support the costs
associated with the
annual follies. To make a
donation, call Benny
Weaver at Loveland,
941-493-0016, ext. 337.


group, with
some featured solos
and a few dance numbers
thrown in for good
measure. Despite their
developmental chal-
lenges, the Loveland
students never fail to
entertain and their
infectious enthusiasm is
contagious, leaving
everyone in the audience
feeling better than they


did before
the show.
Venice
Theatre
volunteers
are as
enthusiastic
as the
Loveland
students,
returning
year after
year to help
the students


learn and
perform their parts
in the show.
The Loveland partner-
ship with Venice Theatre
began 14 years ago as a
suggestion of longtime
theater volunteer Yvonne
T. Pinkerton who directed
the annual show until two
years ago.


This is a mainstage
show, treated by the
theater staff like any other
mainstage show. Theater
personnel oversee every
aspect of its production to
the same degree as they
would one of the big
musical shows in the
middle of the mainstage
season.
Tickets are $15 per
person. The theater is at
140 W. Tampa Ave. on the
island in downtown
Venice. Order tickets on
line at
www.venicestage.com or
call the box office at
941-488-1115 Monday
through Friday, 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. or Saturday from
10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and
one hour before all
performances.

seeking food at reasonable prices


Southwest architec-
ture, pink adobe
walls and a Mexican
courtyard welcome
customers to Dean's
outdoor bar or indoor
cantina.
The absence of any-
thing but a small neon
sign in one window does
not discourage the
enthusiastic clientele.
The interior continues
the Tex-Mex cantina
theme with lots of neon,
brightly painted walls
and decorations. TV's and
video games complete
the bar atmosphere.
The menu features a
large variety of munchies
to have with drinks or as
appetizers for your meal.
They range in price from
$1.99 for salsa and chips
to $13.95 for the cleverly
named The Indecision
which contains eight
different appetizers!
Wings with an assort-
ment of sauce

From the South of the
Border dinner menu we
chose Chicken Fajitas
($12.95), Enchiladas
(Verde) ($10.95), and our
New Jersey friend had
Rollers ($9.99), highly
seasoned pulled chicken
served with flour tortillas,
large quantities of
lettuce, cheese, gua-
camole and a spicy pico
de gallo. All entrees come
with a well-prepared
version of refried beans

two large chicken
Enchiladas were hidden
under a thick layer of
melted cheese which
overwhelmed the
flavors of the filling and
green sauce.
For dessert the Fried
Ice Cream ($3.99) was not
what we expected. It was
simply a large scoop of
ice cream rolled in
cinnamon corn flakes
sitting in a crispy tortilla
bowl and smothered in
whipped topping. The
Apple Quesadilla ($3.99),
apple pie filling between
two fried tortillas, was
somewhat more
successful.
