Fast-tracked rental


ordinance is delayed


Fertilizing OK this summer


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The city of Venice has
adopted the Sarasota County
ordinance regulating the use of
fertilizers containing nitrogen
and phosphorus. The county
approved its ordinance Aug.
27, 2007.
City officials are encourag-
ing residents to reduce the use
of targeted fertilizers immedi-
ately, but said the program
won't become mandatory for
six months, giving plenty of
time to adapt to new rules and
allowing staff the time to
receive training and establish
the program
That means residents will
not be required to comply with
the regulations during this
rainy season.
Interim Assistant City Man-
ager Nancy Woodley said the
delayed implementation sched-


Woodley Lang


ule is "the right approach to
encourage (fertilizer conserva-
tion) rather than hitting them
over the head with a bat."
Council Member Sue Lang
said she was glad the ordi-
nance finally made it on the
city council agenda, and en-
couraged some kind of educa-
tional program promoting vol-
untary compliance until it
becomes mandatory.
The city will use in-house
staff to enforce the ordinance,
Woodley said.


Standards
The ordinance bans the use
of nitrogen or phosphorus fer-
tilizers from June 1 to Sept. 30
and sets maximum amounts
of nitrogen and phosphorus
levels in fertilizers, and recom-
mends using slow-release fer-
tilizers. It also establishes a fer-
tilizer-free zone within 10 feet
of any body of water.
"Low maintenance zones"
are set within 6 feet of a water
body. Companies that apply
the fertilizer are required to
create a training course.
Critics say fertilizers con-
tributed to environmentally
and economically damaging
bouts of red tide that have
been known to sully beaches
and drive tourists away.
In Sarasota County, water
bodies have been experiencing

The 'new face' of HIV


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A fast-tracked city ordi-
nance that bans future short-
term rentals within single fam-
ily neighborhoods was held up
on Tuesday by the planning
commission.
Try as they may, staff and
the city's planning consultant
David Depew were unable to
convince the commission it
should move swiftly, in accor-
dance with city council's wish-
es, to adopt an ordinance that
would thwart more homeown-
ers from converting into rent-
als.
The commission wasn't
having any of it, however, and
decided to hold the draft ordi-
nance until they have time to
properly consider the mea-
sure.
Commission Chair John Os-
mulski said he understood
council's concern, but warned
it was better to have the plan-
ning commission give it a thor-
ough review now than to allow
an ordinance to slip through
that has unintended conse-
quences later on.
"Absolutely, we need to
make sure we don't get into
future litigation over this," Os-
mulski said during a break in


the meeting.
The first unresolved issue
arose when commission mem-
bers learned the city would use
compliance with state tax and
fire and safety regulations to
weed out some of the existing
short-term rentals.
Existing short-term rental
owners who are unable to
prove they already have the
necessary building and fire
and safety inspections, and
have paid the appropriate
state rental taxes, will be treat-
ed as noncompliant and un-
able to participate later on in
an amortization program that
is currently under review.
It's the first time the city has
acknowledged that some exist-
ing short-term rental property
owners won't receive any ben-
efit from the amortization
schedule, which partially reim-
burses owners for a portion of
retrofitting costs incurred
when they transformed the
property from a home into a
rental. The amortization
schedule eventually puts the
rentals out of business in over
a year or so.
"Say I am one who wants to
comply," said Commissioner
Jerrel Towery, "we have no

When Valerie Wojciecho-
wicz talks in classrooms about
her medical condition, the
reaction is always shock and
disbelief.
That's because she doesn't
drink alcohol, eats well, teach-
es aerobics and takes her med-
ication religiously.
She is the picture of health.
And she is infected with hu-
man immunodeficiency virus,
the cause of AIDS.
Her appearance is at odds
with the skin-and-bones im-
age most people still have of
those who are HIV-infected,
she said.
"We still seem to think we
can choose our partners and
take our risks based on how
someone looks," she said.
"There is a new face to HIV It's
not the way it was in 1981."
The fact that people are
engaging in risky behaviors
based upon old stereotypes -
such as the way people look-
accounts in part for the fact
that there are thousands of
new cases reported annually,

agencies and private organiza-
tions, experts say.

No new taxes, service cuts seen in 2009-10 Sarasota County budget


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


A proposed Sarasota Coun-
ty budget of $981,381,854 for
fiscal year 2009-10 is not ex-
pected to increase taxes or
decrease services to residents,
county commissioners were
told Tuesday during their first
set of budget workshops.
The proposed budget is
$113,965,878 less than FY
2008-09. County directors had
been told by County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley to bring in "flat"
budgets with no increases
- and that directive was
achieved. However, health and
human services representa-
tives urged the board to con-
sider funding increases in that
area.
The last Sarasota County
budget over $1 billion was in


FY 2006. That budget, driven
by the construction boom in
the county, was $1,015,587,588.
The previous year, the budget
was $871,341,345.
Currently, the general fund
millage is 2.8946. Since no
millage increase is expected, a
taxpayer owning a nonhome-
steaded home assessed at the
county average of $190,946 will
pay $637 in taxes, with $552 of
that going into the general
fund. The figure does not
include city, school board, hos-
pital board or other special dis-
trict taxes.
Homeowners of long-term
homesteaded properties can
expect a "modest increase in
taxes," according to Deputy
County Administrator Dave
Bullock.
Those increases will be
equal to their FY 2009 taxes,


plus 3 percent of that amount,
he said.
While the message to coun-
ty commissioners was one of
good county stewardship
through internal changes, an-
other message from Ley and
his staff was a warning that
internal changes alone (in-
cluding departmental consoli-
dations and cross-training
staff) will not carry the county
past FY2011. If property values
continue to spiral downward,
commissioners were told, then
the board would have to con-
sider cost-cutting measures.
Two measures lowering
the current level of customer
service or increasing the mill-
age commissioners previ-
ously have been reluctant to
consider.
A third cost-controlling
measure would be directed at


staff. Those measures could
include a freeze on pay or step
increases, furloughs or layoffs.
Pay freezes and layoffs already
have been used by the county,
with layoffs coming initially
through county consolidations
starting in 2007.
Requests for budget in-
creases came from two areas in
community health and human
services. Although current lev-
els of service will be main-
tained, Melanie Michael told
commissioners that those ser-
vices are being tested because
of the current economy.
"There has been an un-
precedented demand for pri-
mary care," Michael said. She
said the clinics average 6,500
visits per month, with 25,000
clients of low-income or of
uninsured or underinsured
status.


Michael said a backlog ex-
ists so that current clients have
to wait 12 days to be seen. New
patrons have a wait of two to
three weeks.
Nancy DeLoach, director of
grants management, told
commissioners that because
of reduced funding, "current
levels of service cannot be
maintained (after 2010)."
"(We're) stretched to the
limits," DeLoach said.
During the workshops,
commissioners suggested cer-
tain county services be revisit-
ed.
One such area was Buchan
Airport in Englewood. Ac-
cording to staff, Buchan Air-
port costs the county $91,000
to maintain but brings in only
$2,400 per year in revenue.

Man questioned
after MCC threat
Sarasota County Sheriff's deputies
questioned a 30-year-old Manatee
Community College student Monday
morning after he allegedly told a fellow
student around 10 a.m. that he planned
to get a gun and return to the South
County campus because he "had noth-
ing to live for." Several North Port police
officers went to the man's North Port
home around 10:30 a.m., but he was
not there.
According to Kathy Walker, director of
public affairs for MCC, the man voluntar-
ily spoke to deputies on campus before
noon. He said he was blowing off steam
and didn't mean his comments to be
threatening. The man will speak to the
campus chief of security, Walker said, and
it will be determined if he will be allowed
back on campus or if he needs additional
intervention. He was not arrested.
"We take potential threats very seri-
ously," Walker said. "We cannot dimin-
ish the possibility of a threat. We care
about safety first of the students and
the staff and everybody on campus."
Walker said MCC officials followed
protocol and "did their right part" in
handling the situation. At no time was
the campus on lockdown.

I'(A Beach Bash marks



VAYP anniversary


Suncoast Polytechnical High School teachers observe the robotics used to trim PVB in
the PGT glass plant.


Teachers go 'real world' at PGT


FROM PGT INDUSTRIES


School may be out for students
across the state of Florida, but not for
teachers at Suncoast Polytechnical
High School in Sarasota.
PGT Industries, one of the nation's
largest manufacturers of custom win-
dows and doors, hosted a group of
teachers from SPHS last week to help
them ensure real-world lessons are
integrated into their classroom teach-
ing.
"By spending the day with PGT pro-
fessionals, the teachers will be able to
share with their students what it's like
to work in a manufacturing environ-
ment," said Liz Evers, training and de-
velopment manager for PGT, who orga-
nized the visit. "Suncoast Polytechnical
offers exceptional programs in architec-
ture and construction, creating a
pipeline of possible future employees
for PGT and other local manufacturers."
SPHS, which opened during the
2008-09 school year, is located on the
same campus as the Sarasota County
Technical Institute. According to the
school's principal, Jennifer Putnam, the
academic program will be college
preparatory and career-focused with


an emphasis on business knowledge
and 21st Century Workplace skills.
Wanda Calder6n, a teacher at SPHS,
said she was impressed by how well-
integrated the different areas of work are
and by the level of communication skills
that everyone is required to have at PGT.
Another SPHS teacher, Daniel Cole,
agreed.
"We 'talk the talk' about teamwork
here at Suncoast Polytechnical High
School and that is what we are teaching.
That's one of our 21st Century Work-
space skills," he said. "PGT shows us
how to 'walk the walk.' I appreciated the
chance to experience that in our job
shadow."
According to Warren Hunter, a man-
ufacturing group leader at PGT, the
teachers asked important questions:
What type of math skills are required to
perform at various PGT jobs? What
types of software should they be teach-
ing the architectural students?
"These teachers are really going to
prepare their students for the future,"
said Hunter. "It's one thing to have book
knowledge; it's another thing to have
real world knowledge. If they can bring
real life examples into the classroom -
that's superb."

Bargains to heat up downtown


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

A very special Christmas in July in
historic downtown Venice is planned
this year with stores uniting to provide
shoppers with red-hot bargain shop-
ping all weekend.
The group of 30-plus participating
merchants plans to have special sales
and promotions during the weekend of
July 24 and 25.
All participating merchants and
restaurants will be donating gift certifi-
cates or merchandise for the $600
grand prize displayed in the window of
Venice Stationers, 211 W Venice Ave.,
beginning July 15. Some shop owners
will even dress in holiday wear for this
special event, said Sandy McGowan,
owner of Sandy's Designer Clothing,
128 W Venice Ave.
Participating stores are Sandy's
Designer Clothing, Kerri's Jewels &
Gems, Holiday Dreams and Memories,
Cafe Venice, Meows & Growls, Krys-
tyna's, the Paper Pad, Venice Stationers,
Sun Bug, Dick's Shoes, Back Eddy Bistro
Restaurant, Devine Consign, Col-
lectors' Gallery & Framery, Sirene
Coastal Interiors, Yesterday's Mem-
ories, The Knitting Place, Cafe Mag-
niafico, Venice Theatre, Upper Crust

Chic, Erlenbach Studio, Venice Tropical
Shop, Joyful Expressions, Cassariano
Restaurant, Lisa's Classic Rose, Fraser's

Nana's, Treasures in Time, Your Favorite
Things and Cool Breeze Boat & Jet Ski
Rentals.
Shoppers making purchases will
receive a ticket in the grand-prize draw-
ing. Each participating store will have
an entry box. Merchants will offer sav-
ings for Christmas in July weekend and
have their own store raffles, said
McGowan.
In the past few days, summer sizzler
seasonal specials have begun down-
town, such as Kay's Lunch Brunch at
Cafe Venice, 116 W Venice Ave. Diners
who purchase five lunches get the sixth
lunch free. Guests enjoying dinner on
their birthday get a free bottle of wine.
Shoppers can pick-up a "passport to
savings" card at Sandy's Designer
Clothing entitling them to a 20-percent
discount on one item each time they
shop during June, July and August.
Jeff O'Berry owner of Nifty Nic Nacs,
203 W Venice Ave., is handing out free "I
$HOP LOCAL" stickers to help promote
the downtown shopping experience.
They can be worn on clothes or at-
tached to a bumper, backpack or re-
usable shopping bag.
Summer shopping events planned
by Patchington, 138 W Venice Ave.,
include the "Skirts and Trousers Bo-
nanza" for June; multiplying the invest-
ment for your business and pleasure
wardrobe in July; and wearing black for

Kearney Moving &
Storage, 641 North Tami-
ami Trail, Nokomis, was
ranked No. 2 nationwide
for the first quarter from
200 representative com-
panies across the nation
of American Red Ball
Transit Company.
"It is a good sign for
the economy, better than
last year, that we are
assisting more people
move," said owner John
Kearney.
He has downsized a
little, but with business
picking up he hopes to be
back where he was two
years ago and looking to
add people again.
Movers everywhere
else in the country re-
ported less business than
in Nokomis. Kearney
attributed this primarily
to people moving out of
Florida.
"It is natural attrition
when retirees who have
had a part-time home
here for 15-20 years often
times go home to be with
families," he said.
Grady Hough Sr., sta-
tion master at Venice
Train Depot, began the
moving business in 1962.
Robert Kearney
acquired it in 1976,
employing two movers
and three office people.
In 1984, John Kearney
took over and now
employs one office per-
son and 10 crewmen
operating six trucks.
His son, JP, has been
working with eight crew-
men moving the Allstate


regional offices in St.
Petersburg.
Kearney's office is
open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. week-
days and Saturday morn-
ings. Call 485-3383.
Going all green
Owner Kate Heddings
is making a bold busi-
ness move, changing her
store name from Up-
town Girls Trendy Bou-
tique to The Green
Room, 101 W.Venice Ave.
- during the summer in
preparation for the next
season.
"I'm getting rid of the
clothes, because people
have got bored seeing the
same stuff, so I am focus-
ing on going green by
changing to gift items
and accessories," she
said.
She recently intro-
duced paper made from
elephant poop fiber, bags
from recycled yacht sails,
45- and 78-rpm records
recycled into coasters
and wind chimes con-
structed of recycled sil-
verware with fishing line.
Look for more unusu-
al recycled gifts as Hed-
dings increases her
greener inventory items.
Summer store hours
are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Mon-
day through Saturday.
Call 483-4593.
Bridge reopening
Repairs to the historic
Casey Key Swing Bridge
on Blackburn Point
Road, Osprey, are on
schedule for completion
by June 26.
Pinky Pakalapati,
Sarasota County project
manager, confirmed that
all the major new equip-
ment has been installed.
Barring any surprises or
inclement weather, the
job will be completed on
time, and the bridge may
even be opened a few
days earlier.
A weekend bridge re-
opening celebration
party with music to com-
memorate this special


occasion will take place
beginning Friday, June
26, hosted by Jimmy Van
Hubert, owner, and the
crew of the Casey Key
Fish House, Blackburn
Point Road.
Quality kitchens
Having spent much of
his business career re-
modeling homes, it is no
surprise that Tim Zeigler
has launched a kitchen-
and-bath design compa-
ny.
Coastal Living Kitch-
en & Bath, Shore Road,
Nokomis, assesses the
customer's goals, pre-
pares a floor plan, assists
in product selection and
then streamlines installa-

nomic conditions by
keeping costs low and
passing savings on to the
customer.

Correction
I have been advised
that Darby Buick sold its
Sarasota dealership two
years ago and has never
had a location in Char-
lotte County.
My report that Gen-

GMC dealerships stated
otherwise.

fertilizer and other nitrogen sources.
"Sarasota County is working
through civic, government and in-
dustry stakeholder groups to develop
solutions that will return our bays to a
healthier state by addressing water
bodies that have been polluted by
fertilizer runoff," states its Web site.


Concerned with local govern-
ments passing myriad ordinances
on the subject, the state Legis-
lature this year passed Senate Bill
494 establishing a model ordi-
nance for Florida-friendly fertilizer
use. The bill, which has yet to be
signed into law by the governor,
would go into effect July 1.
Local governments like the city of


Venice and Sarasota County were
allowed to adopt more stringent pro-
visions than the model ordinance.
To do so, it was recommended
they demonstrate certain criteria.
The city is counting on the county
to meet that stipulation by adopt-
ing an ordinance it will update reg-
ularly as the county ordinance is
updated.


HIV from Page 1A


Ignorance
Despite advances in treatment,
the myths surrounding HIV and
AIDS persist, along with the stigma
that prevents many people from
telling their partners and families
once they test positive.
Many women find out they
have the disease only when they
get pregnant, for example. That
may be from unprotected sex with
infected partners who did not tell
them they were HIV-positive.
Those having sex for the first
time and the recently widowed
and divorced are groups of major
concern for infection, according to
Joan Surso, a prevention and train-
ing consultant for epidemiology
and communicable diseases in
Sarasota County.
For those 55 or older, the real
causes of infection are ignorance
and denial, said Eric Stockley, HIV
and AIDS prevention consultant.
Nationwide, 15 percent of new
HIV cases fall into that age group,
yet there's a persistent sense that it
is a young person's disease.
'As baby boomers start to age,
we are healthier than our prede-
cessors, and that includes our sex-
ual health," Stockley said. "The
youth are very educated on HIV by
the time they get to 12th grade.
The older ones tend to put their
heads in the sand."
'That kind'
Wojciechowicz was diagnosed
with HIV at 28, but said she knows
she contracted the disease
between age 16 and 23. She found
out she was infected when she
applied for life insurance shortly


after marrying.
"He was negative, I was positive
and I was told I had 18 months to
live," she said. "We were planning
to have children."
The marriage lasted 10 years
after her diagnosis.
"It's not like I sat around waiting
to die, but nobody ever gave us
hope that I wasn't going to." she
said. "Today, what we tell people is:
'You're probably going to live a
normal life span. You're just going
to do it taking medication.' "
It's not the dying part that's
hard, Wojciechowicz said. Telling
family, partners, friends and doc-
tors is what's traumatic.
"There's quite often a judgment,
and even if there isn't, we're terri-
fied there's going to be," she said.
"The kids say to me: 'You don't
look like that kind of person,' and I
say: 'What kind? The kind that
doesn't have sex?'"
Normal?
About 2,000 people have been
diagnosed with HIV in Sarasota
County since tracking began in
1997, Surso said. Through 2008,
more than 800 are known in the
county to be infected, including 10
children.
Many people who are HIV posi-
tive have no symptoms early on or,
if they do, mistake them for flu,
with nausea, joint pain, fever and
maybe enlarged lymph nodes. The
symptoms soon disappear.
"They can go seven to 10 years
thinking they're normal and then
all of a sudden those symptoms
become chronic," Surso said.
Often they learn they are infect-


ed when their white blood cells
become depleted, Surso said.
By then, it may be too late. They
are experiencing chronic prob-
lems such as diarrhea, repeated
yeast infections, herpes and other
diseases a person with a healthy
immune system can fight.
Many infected people died be-
fore anti-viral medication and
therapy, which go by the acronym
HAART, became available. Treat-
ment usually consists of two or
three anti-viral medications and
supplements to manage the side
effects.
'Clueless'
Wojciechowicz speaks on be-
half of the Community AIDS
Network in Sarasota and works
with other HIV/AIDS organiza-
tions. Her face has appeared on
magazines and TV shows. She has
aWeb site, www.4HIVhelp.com.
Most men run screaming from
her when she tells them she has
HIV
"I've never dated a single guy
who knew anything about HIV,"
she said. "I tell them on or before
the first date. They're all clueless
and they're all having unprotected
sex. It would be comical if it wasn't
so sad."
Wojciechowicz hopes to raise
awareness of the need for HIV test-
ing.
"I don't know anyone who looks
sick and has this disease," she said.
"I want women to look at my pic-
ture and say, 'She looks like any 46-
year-old woman. Maybe I should
get tested.' "
dsanchez@sun-herald.com


RENTAL from Page lA
process or procedure for
that. We are making law
yet we have no enforce-
ment procedure for
that."
He asked again if there
would be a time period
for existing short-term
rental property owners to
come into compliance
with the inspections.
The answer was no.
"We haven't tried to do
that," Depew said. "The
reason is we are nervous
in having new rentals
come in during that win-
dow.
"So we said if they
already have those (in-
spections) done, then
they are an existing
rental. If they haven't we
may have" to do some-
thing else.
"When we asked (at a
previous workshop with
invited property owners)
how many had their
short-term rentals in-
spected, they squirmed
in their seats a little bit,"
said Depew.
"Codes require it. The
folks doing this are run-
ning a real risk. If the city
knows about it the city
may or may not be run-
ning a risk as well."
"This (ordinance) pro-
hibits new short-term
rentals, and requires
existing ones to come in
and set up an inspec-
tion," Depew said.
"The city is within its


SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A

rights to charge for that
service to defray inspec-
tion costs."
How are you going to
police this, asked Com-
missioner Janis Fawn.
"I don't know the an-
swer to this," Depew said.
"If it's held out for rent, it
is accepted as prima
facia evidence they are
operating a commercial
establishment" illegally.
Fawn also wanted it
spelled out in the ordi-
nance where short-term
rentals would be allowed.
Commissioner Greg
Shanika said compliance
right now is driven by
complaints.
"I wish there was
some way to avoid that.
I'm betting you're going
to get charges of harass-
ment on this and law-
suits."
"If we are trying to
stop new ones, why are
we addressing existing
ones" in this ordinance,
Osmulski asked.
The commission
opted to forward
revised definitions of
"resort rentals" and the
"residential estate"
zoning designation,
and reinserted lan-
guage allowing rentals
up to three times per
year, but held the ordi-
nance for further con-
sideration.

OUR VIEW



We hope the Springs are eternal


With recent news that offers are
being made to purchase
Warm Mineral Springs in
North Port, we're hopeful that local
officials are fully engaged and haven't
taken their eyes off the ball when it
comes to preservation of a unique
local attraction.
The Springs is a landmark with
enormous untapped potential as a
tourist draw. It had fallen on difficult
times, but its future holds more
promise.
In times like this, it's easy to see
why we've got to hold on to what
we've got. That's why the city of North
Port has to maintain its efforts to
ensure the viability of the enterprise.
From the looks of things, that is the
case.
Warm Mineral Springs is an 81-
acre property containing a 1.4-acre,
mineral-rich pond long revered for its
restorative qualities. Originally pro-
moted as the famous fountain of


youth sought by the explorer Ponce
de Leon, it draws thousands of visi-
tors annually, including many from
Europe, where mineral spas are
extremely popular.
Over the years, North Port's large
Russian and Ukrainian community
grew around the Springs, which
maintain a year-round temperature
of 87 degrees.
Even though some 75,000 day-vis-
its were recorded in 2007, the owner-
ship faltered. In February, Cypress
Lending of Naples foreclosed on long-
time owner Golden Springs LLC,
which owed more than $7 million on
the property. The future began to look
bleak.
But the financier has stepped up.
While Cypress officials have said
they had no intention of developing
the property long-term on their own,
they have pumped money into reno-
vations. Interim general manager
Gene Vaccaro said last week that


Cypress is committed to improving
the operation with a new owner or
partner. A grand reopening will be
held later this summer.
That's a healthy sign. Meanwhile,
Vaccaro told Sun staff writer Ed Scott
he has gotten more than eight offers
for the property. One possible part-
nership could involve the Sarasota
Conservation Foundation, North Port
and Sarasota County.
A private owner may be interested
in buying and developing the proper-
ty on its own. But chances are a devel-
oper would want to build a hotel and
condominiums, and establish a resort
around the Springs that attracts a
new, moneyed clientele.
It's important that the Springs
becomes a going concern, but it
shouldn't come while limiting local
use of the property.
Any developer would still need the
city's blessing to expand. According to
Vaccaro, city sewer and water is need-


ed at the site, as well as major road
improvements. In other words, a new
developer will need cooperation from
local government.
As City Commissioner David
Garofalo told the Sun, the city might
even look at possible condemnation if
a proposed use were considered
unacceptable on the environmentally
sensitive property.
We still like the idea of some form
of public-private partnership to make
this business work. Preservation is a
must, as is continued, affordable pub-
lic access.
There's no reason a private busi-
ness can't help enhance this asset, but
it's best done in conjunction with
local government. Just look at Snook
Haven to see an example of that con-
cept done right.
To this end, North Port City Man-
ager Steve Crowell said this week the
city was working on a proposal with
the county. We hope it gets done.


Good going


BOB VEDDER

We are blessed with
some of the best founda-
tions in the state. Besides
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, we
have the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County, the Selby Foun-
dation and, in the not-
too-distant future, the
Patterson Foundation.
GCCFV is the biggest
community foundation
in the state, all thanks to
the forward thinking of
former Venice Hospital
board members who
wanted the Venice area to
be the beneficiary of its
sale.
I am often critical of
GCCFV. My big com-
plaint is it has strayed
from its mission by send-
ing millions of dollars
outside its intended ser-
vice area. Yet it has just
taken a bold step forward
in helping nonprofits in a
time of crisis that I am
excited about.
Traditionally, founda-
tions give out grants to
nonprofit organizations
that are starting a new
venture or for some capi-
tal expenditure. They do
not give money, normal-
ly, for performances,
events or day-to-day op-
erations. They know they
quickly would become
the easy way out for non-
profits. Their mission is
to help solve problems
and bring new solutions
to challenges facing their
communities.
GCCFV has opted, in
these very unusual times,
to grant monies to non-
profits it has had grant
relationships with over
the last five years to help
meet their operational
needs so that services to
the former hospital's ser-
vice area, from Osprey to
Boca Grande to North
Port, will continue through
these trying times.
Teri Hansen, CEO, and
her team certainly are
venturing away from the
norm, but to meet a huge
need. I assume they think
now is a bad time to add
new programs, and I
concur. They already


have given out a couple
of these grants and have
a deadline of July 7 for the
next round. Visit www.
gulfcoastcf.org or call
486-4600 and find out
what forms you need to
fill out.
Of course, the few cap-
ital projects that are in
the wings might not be
funded or at least might
be delayed. One project
that may come forward
soon would be the per-
forming arts hall at the
high school, which may
need more money on top
of the school district's
and the city's contribu-
tions. Hopefully, by the
time that comes around,
the foundation will be
back to what it wants to
be doing. In any case, it is
easy to argue that the
survival of our nonprofits
is more important than
any capital project.
I am sure the founda-
tion does not want in the
long term to become an
operations funding foun-
dation, as it would be-
come an easy crutch.
That is the function of
United Way, which also
has seen shrinking rev-
enues.
I feel certain that
GCCFV will be looking at
what each group has
done to reduce its costs
to ensure it is working
hard to reduce costs. One
such nonprofit cut all pay
by 10 percent and told its
employees to take two
weeks off without pay.
My hat's off to the
foundation on this initia-
tive.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Speak up to keep bills down


Editor:
When was the last time you had a 30-percent raise?
That's exactly what Florida Power & Light asked the
Florida Public Service Commission to grant it on
March 18. If you are a residential customer using 1000
kwh per month, the FPL proposal would result in an
increase of $12.55 on your bill 30 percent more
than what you currently pay.
FPL proposes to increase its profit from its existing
10.7 percent return to a range of 12 percent. The com-
pany's position is that a return rate of 12 percent to 13
percent is needed to attract the capital FPL needs to
serve customers in the future.
If the FPSC approves this increase, step 1 of the in-
crease would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2010, followed by
another increase (step 2) on Jan. 1, 2011.
FPL customers have the opportunity to share their
opinions on the company's proposals at public hear-
ings in our area on June 19, 2009, at 11 a.m. in
Sarasota City Commission Chambers, Sarasota City
Hall, 1565 1st St., and at 6 p.m. at the School Board of
Lee County Board Room, Dr. James A. Adams Public
Education Center, 2855 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers.
Plan to attend one or both of the hearings and to
speak up. Let FPL know how you feel about this
increase. All you really need to say is, "I'm against rais-
ing rates."

Editor:
The Obama Admin-
istration says that it can
expand health care and
lower costs at the same
time, but common sense
tells me that is impossi-
ble. How can you add
millions more Americans
to a huge health-care sys-
tem while at the same
time reduce costs?
The only way would
be for the government to
have control of medical
decisions and that
means rationing health
care and limiting treat-
ments. That is the prob-
lem with the Canadian


and British socialized
health care systems.
Polls indicate that
most Americans are con-
tent with their present
plans and do not want to
be forced into a new gov-
ernment-run plan that
raises taxes, rations care
and creates penalties for
the many small business-
es that cannot afford to
provide health-care in-
surance.
I believe that patients
and their doctors, not
Washington bureaucrats,
should make medical
decisions. I want the op-
tion to keep my present

LET 'EM HAVE IT: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF OUR NICE NEWS FEATURE? CALL 207-1111.


Taking a chance for Jerry's kids


Proud. I'm a firefighter with the city of Venice. I
keep reading the attacks on us firefighters collecting
for MDA. We are the type of people who will take
chances to help handicapped children, but all our
efforts are not for our pay; our efforts are for the
Muscular Dystrophy Association. If you could print
this for us it might give us a little relief from these peo-
ple who like to hammer us on the street corner, which
we do once a year. Once again, that's for Jerry's kids
and we're proud of what we do.


Good deed. This is a
big thank-you to the per-
son who picked up my
prescription at Walmart
last week. It was left in
the buggy. Some kind
person turned it into the
pharmacy. I want to
thank you with all of my
heart for being so nice
and honest.
Let-down. Many peo-
ple walked out of the
Venice Theatre at inter-
mission of "Willie Won-
ka" last week. To me, this
is very rude.

production worked so
hard and this has to be a

Congrats to Jim
Woods, former CEO of
MCC Venice, and Judy
Wilcox, CEO of Habitat
for Humanity South
Sarasota County, for win-
ning the Doc Matson
award from the Venice-
Nokomis Rotary Club.
This award is given to
one Rotary member and
one community member
for their untiring efforts
to make the community
a better place.

I noticed that there is
some 1-cent sales surtax
money from the last tax
that is unspent. I guess it
is no surprise it was to be
used toward airport de-
velopment.
I wonder if it couldn't
be used now to tear down
the ugly Circus Arena. I
don't think anyone can
dispute that needs to be
done. Not sure where all
the rats will go, though.

What I would write about


The other day a friend
said to me, "I really miss
your column in the
Gondolier nobody
writes about the stuff you
did, and we need it."
(Now that's a friend)
We went on to chat
about the fact that my
blog, www.insidevenice-
florida.com is pretty
tame, sticking pretty
much to news reporting
rather than commentary.
Being mayor and having
that responsibility does
temper what I write,
since I cannot separate
myself from the office.
It got me thinking and
here is what I came up
with:
I would write about
what a member of clerk's
staff told me the other
day- that someone sent
a lawyer in to pick up the
papers and neither the
lawyer or his candidate
was identified. The same
day a political consultant
showed up. You heard
me: A self-identified po-
litical consultant showed
up to pick up papers for
another candidate. I
know their names, but
would want to check it
out firsthand before
identifying them. (Im-
mediately separating my-
self from some "journal-
ists" who might not both-
er; I'm self-effacing, too.)
The clerk's office
member told me it was
the first time in her ap-
proximately 15-20 years
she had ever seen that. I
expect the anonymous
and second-hand candi-
dates will run on an


"open government" plat-
form.
I would write about
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son's surprising change
in emphasis on factors
involved in whether
council should approve
the hangars for the Ven-
ice Jet Center despite
nobody having the abili-
ty to provide evidence of
financial ability to pay for
the construction.
Bob is notoriously ret-
icent about talking to the
press, so I might have a
short piece based on my
own speculations and
projections.

When thinking of why,
let's start with money
(selling services) and pol-
itics as guesses, but I
would leave the final
decision up to the reader
after laying out the facts.
Finally, I would write
about why three people
from Sarasota, with no
ties to Venice, filed a Sun-
shine Law suit against
the city, some elected of-
ficials, some appointed
commissioners and one
ex-official.
Those three people
are a stellar group. One is
an ex-convict who served
time for possession with
intent to sell drugs. An-
other was convicted of a

significant by the Justice
Department that it in-
cluded the disposition of

Post 159 falls to Manatee in eight


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Where are


the shrimp?

It happens every summer.
First the shrimp migrate
out of the bays and then out
of the inlets. They then disap-
pear from the near the shore.
Usually what is left are the
small ones. Apparently the
mature ones are going off-
shore to spawn.
Some years this phenom-
enon begins about mid-June
but most of the time about
early July. It can last any-
where from two to four
weeks. Bait shops don't look
forward to this. The only
bright side for them is they
sell quite a bit of frozen pack-
ages of shrimp.
I remember hearing about
fishermen encountering mil-
lions of shrimp offshore. I've
been told they ball up and
the fish have a field day, as do
the fishermen.
My official fish spotter,
Marvin, has been officially
inducted into the U.S. Fish
Spotters Association Hall of
Fame. This is quite an honor
for him. Congratulations,
Marvin.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Hack. Contact him at

Manatee scored six runs in
the top of the eighth inning to
pull out a 13-10 win overVenice
No-Vel Post 159 on Tuesday at
Venice High.
Venice (9-3-2) is coming off
a third-place finish in the
Winter Haven Tournament.
"It wasn't the focus that I
want," Venice coach Craig
Faulkner said. "It's not a tour-
nament it's just a regular game.


We've been focusing and play-
ing good in tournaments. They
kind of let down tonight. We are
going to talk about that."
Tied, 7-7 after seven innings,
Manatee used five hits, error
and walk to scored five runs
and grab a 13-7 cushion.
Venice didn't go away quiet-
ly as Post 159 scored three runs
in the bottom of the eight
inning. Aaron Rhodes and
Michael Knott walked to open
the inning. Zach Brower sin-
gled down the first baseline to


score Rhodes. A wild pitch
scored the second run and the
final run came home on a sac-
rifice fly by James Browning.
Manatee went ahead 5-0
after two innings by scoring
two in the first and three in the
second. Helping their cause
was six walks by Venice.
"We have to come out
throwing strikes from the
beginning," Faulkner said.
"Summer ball you are going to
leave guys in longer because
you want them to get some


innings but (Tommy) Hanks
has to come out and throwing
strikes. He has to make the
adjustment. He's a senior and
we need him to fight and throw
strikes."
Post 159 battled all the way
back and tied it at 5-5 with sin-
gle runs in the second and

races, officials allowed each
skipper to throw out his or
her worst finish.
Thomas won eight out
her 10 races, losing only to
Paul Kreider twice, as she
retained her class crown
after also winning it 2008.
Kreider placed second and
Sami Tornese was third.
Andrew Sosa finished fourth.
In the Red, White and
Blue bracket, Muscato won
only one race but grabbed
seconds and thirds in all the
others to claim the top spot.
Stephan VerHulst, who was
last year's Green Fleet cham-
pion, garnered four firsts but


also had a fifth-place and
three fourth-places finishes
to accumulate second-place
points. Garrett Lawlor came
in third, Evan Langer ended
up in fourth place and Stefan
Johnson was fifth.
The Ernest Green Fleet,
reserved for first-year com-
petitors, sailed with the Red,
White and Blue blue but was
scored separately. Johnson
still won three races overall
and captured her division
handily. The 15-year-old
skipper did so well she
would have finished fourth
overall if the two fleets had
been scored as one fleet.
Samantha Wood was sec-

Headaches" k
that arise from
the neck, known as
l "cervicogenic headaches,"
may occur as a result of
trauma to structures of the
neck. As the result of whiplash
or some other injury, nerve
endings transmit pain signals up
the pathway from the upper nerves
of the neck to the brain. Along the
way, they intermingle with the nerve
fibers of the trigeminal nerve, which
is responsible for the perception of
head pain. Consequently, the patient
experiences the symptoms of headache.
In an effort to stop this pain, the
chiropractor may attempt to realign
vertebrae in the neck, increase range
of motion, and relax the surrounding
muscles. Multiple treatments may
be needed to address pain that has
persisted for years.


P.S. Cervicogenic headaches often
result from sports injuries.

CONGO from Page 1B


Finally, they arrived at the ware-
house where the 400 Shelterboxes
were stored last fall when the fighting
died down and the boxes were not
needed immediately.
"We have a duty to the donors to
ensure the boxes are distributed,"
Freeman said. "We got the OK from
the U.N. to meet with other aid organi-
zations."
Donors such as individual Rotary
clubs pay $1,000 per Shelterbox. The
money covers the cost of the contents,
shipment and response team expenses
to wherever the boxes are needed.
Eventually, the passports were
returned and arrangements were
made with HEAL Africa to distribute
162 of the 400 Shelterboxes in an area
near Bisenji, where Pagotta and
Freeman stayed in a hotel within a
walled compound.
"It was clean, cost $50 per night,
had hot water, good showers and razor
wire on the walls surrounding the
compound," Freeman said. There were
two armed guards in residence. They
were not for Pagota and Freeman's
protection but because there was a
government diplomat staying there at
the same time.
"We ate a lot of goat," Freeman said.
"It was cool at night and in the 70s
during the day because, even though it
was near the equator, we were up in
the mountains."
An active volcano was just 20 kilo-
meters away from the encampment. It
is expected to "blow" this year,
Freeman said. It is possible to go up to
the caldera (rim), but they were
advised not to because of the possibili-
ty of becoming involved in a political
uprising. Nor did they walk around at
night.
The Congo is different from
Rwanda in other ways. The effects of
genocide are quite visible. People with
missing limbs are but one example.
During genocide, limbs were cut off to
make people helpless and dependent
and of no use to their families. Many of
the women who were raped cannot
have children.
Islam is growing all over the coun-
try. During the days of genocide, all the
mosques were open.
Most of the people affected were
sent to refugee camps, but many did
not want to leave the only home they
knew. It is those people who received
the 162 Shelterboxes freed up by
Pagotta and Freeman's mission to the
Congo.
Those Shelterboxes were set up in
the Kirotshe camp with the assistance
of local church leaders and police vol-


unteers who guarded the donation
store. Even after deployment of these
Shelterboxes and 150 other shelter kits,
HEAL Africa requested food and non-
food items adequate to supply 12,000
households.
"We did help some but we are so
thankful for what we have," Freeman
said.
Freeman and his wife, Jennifer
Swanson, are expecting a baby Sept.
10. He said he "is not allowed out of
the country" for a while. After the baby
is born, Freeman said he wants to help
with disaster relief in this hemisphere,
if needed.
Meanwhile, other Shelterboxes and
other response teams have been
deployed to several other areas in the
world, according to Freeman. One
hundred Shelterboxes were sent to the
Philippines May 14 for people made
homeless by typhoons Chan-Hom and
Kujira. According to government
reports from there, 13,881 homes were
totally destroyed and nearly 11,000
homes partially destroyed. A response
team had arrived there two days earli-
er to assess needs.
May 20, a team went to Pakistan to
oversee distribution of 367
Shelterboxes and other goods needed
by people fleeing the fighting in the
northwest part of the country. Plans
are in the works to send additional
boxes.
May 13, 224 Shelterboxes were dis-
tributed in the Vanni region of Sri
Lanka to help people fleeing the fight-
ing there. Tallahassee resident John
Mackie was part of that response
team, working with John Corell of
Vancouver, Wash. The Sri Lanka effort
is a project of Rotary, Habitat for
Humanity, the International
Organization for Migration and the
United Nations.
While the Shelterbox program is a
major project of Rotary International,
membership in Rotary is not required
of donors or those who would be
members of response teams such as
Pagotta and Freeman. The Shelterbox
headquarters is at Lakewood Ranch.
Pagotta and Freeman are part of some
250 responders around the world.
Shelterbox hopes to train an additional
20 volunteers in the United States this
year. Also needed are volunteers for
the Lakewood Ranch office and to
make presentations out in the com-
munity.

shelterboxusa.org or call the Lakewood
Ranch office at 907-6036.

their contributions and advo-
cacy for the public schools in

Collectors and
Enthusiasts in
Venice, Florida,
with $2,000,000 to
Purchase Yours!
By CHRISTINA BUTLER
STAFF WRITER

Got Coin? It might be just the
time to cash in. This week starting
Tuesday and oniiiiiuiiini through
Saturday the International Collectors
Association in conjunction with the
Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Refinery
will be purchasing all types of silver
and gold coins direct from the public.
All types are welcome and the event
is free.
Collectors will be on hand to
identify and sort your coins. Then the
quality or grade will be determined.
The better the grade the more they are
worth according to collectors I talked
to. With the silver and gold markets
high prices of older coins are too. Any
coins minted before 1965 in the U.S.
are 90% silver except nickels and
pennies.
The coins worth is determined
by the rarity and the grade. Old silver
dollars are worth a great premium
right now even well worn heavy
circulated ones are bringing good
premiums. Franklin and Kennedy
halves, Washing ton quarters,
Mercury and Roosevelt dimes are
all worth many times the face value.
While older types like Seated Liberty,
Standing Liberties, and Barber coins
are worth even more.
Gold coins are really worth a
lot right now according to Brian
Eades of the International Collectors
Association. This country didn't start
minting coins until 1792 says Eades.
Before that people would trade
goods using gold dust and nuggets.
Some shop keepers would take more
gold than needed to pay for items
purchased. There was no uniform


system of making change.
The government opened the
first mints and began distributing
the coins in 1792. By the beginning
of the 19th century coins and paper
currency were wide spread and our
monetary system was here to stay. In
1933 Roosevelt required all banking
institutions to turn in all gold coins.
Once all banks turned in this gold
the president raised the gold standard
from $20.00 per ounce to $33.00
per ounce. This was his way of
stimulating the economy during the
great depression. However gold coins
were never redistributed after the
recall. Not all gold coins were turned
in. Many folks during that time didn't
completely trust the government and
choose to keep their gold.
These gold coins are sought
after collectors today and bring many
times the face value. Any gold coins
with the mint marks of CC, D or 0
will bring nice premiums. Collectors
at the event will be glad to show
you where to look. Other types of
coins will also be purchase including
foreign coins, Indian head cents, two
cent pieces, half dimes, three cent
pieces and buffalo nickels to name a
few.
Collectors warn people against
trying to clean their coins as
significant damage can be done and
the coins value lessened.


Items we will accept
include:
Scrap Jewelry
Dental Gold
Sterling Silverware
Sterling Silver Tea Sets
Silver Dollars
All Coins Dated before 1965

Proceeds of the event go to
the Rotary Futures Program
at VHS, assisting students
through the process of con-
tinuing their educations or
careers following high
school.
What makes this event very
special is that everything,
including the restaurant and
its servers, was donated to
maximize the benefit to
Rotary Futures. Is this a great
town, or what? Give a big
thank you and a big tip to your
server next time you visit

Back to school
Until I attended the "Late
Nite Catechism" class at
Sarasota's Golden Apple
Dinner Theatre, I thought I had
been reasonably well educated.
I was wrong.
Even though I am not
Catholic, it seems I missed out
on more than being wrapped on
the knuckles with a ruler by a
nun.
I missed out on some impor-
tant rules of fashion. Thanks to
Nonie Newton-Breen, who
portrays the catechism class
teacher, I will always carry some
tissues with me lest I run into
her or another nun. That most
nuns no longer wear habits
complicates the issue. Fortu-
nately there were a few nuns at
the performance I attended so I
have a clue about what they
wear now. Newton-Breen, on
the other hand, was in full
regalia, armed with prayer cards
and other rewards for correct
answers.
I also learned about holidays
that were new to me and, which
saints are in or even worse -
out. Poor St. Christopher.
We even got to vote on
potential new saints.
We learned the Last Rites
have been replaced by the
Blessing of the sick. It seems too
many people were freaked out
when, as hospital patients, they
were visited by a priest there to
deliver the Last Rites. That could
tip the scales the wrong way for
some poor soul. It would
certainly give me pause if I were
the one in the hospital bed.
In Act two I learned about
Limbo and aborigines, the real
story about Adam and Eve and
their boys, Purgatory and, that
Jesus really was Irish.
To enroll in Newton-Breen's
ongoing class, which comes
with a buffet dinner and the
potential to win a glow-in-the-
dark rosary, call 941-366-5454.

Let the season begin with A marvelous Party!'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
There is fun to be had
at Florida Studio
Theatre's "A marvelous
Party!"
The musical celebra-
tion of Noel Coward
and his outlook on the
world entertains with
song and dance s well
as the keyboard artistry
of Carl Danielson and
Todd Lindemood.
Danielson, who
created the musical
arrangements in the
show, is a force to be
reckoned with. In
addition to bringing
down the house with
his piano playing
duel/duet with Linde-


mood, he also served as
a fine dance partner for
co-star Stefanie Morse
in several numbers that
hearkened back to the
Fred and Ginger era,
despite the tiny stage in
FST's Keating theater.
Adding additional
comedic value to this
entertaining show is
Broadway actor Robin
Haynes. Working
together, separately
and occasionally
changing partners for
duets, the three
singers/dancers
became a force to be
reckoned with at the
June 6 evening perfor-
mance. Tony Bruno is
on drums.


Directed by Fred
Weiss, this is a happy,
feel-good production
that grows to a super
finale during which the
cast performs the Cole
Porter classic, "Let's Do
It, Let's Fall in Love,"
with several new verses
that include such
names as Vern
Buchanan, Bernie
Madoff, Prince Charles,
Michelle Obama,
Lakewood Ranch and
the poor little city of
Bradenton.
Similar to shows
usually seen in FST's
Goldstein Cabaret, "A
marvelous Party!" is
fun, chic and some-


times, tongue-in-
cheek.
The set was designed
by Lauren Feldman.
Costumes are by
Marcella Beckwith and
lighting is by Michael
Pasquini.
"A Marvelous Party!"
is the first of FST's
three-production
Summerfest season. It
will be followed by
"Shirley Valentine,"
which opens July 1, and
"The Complete Works
of William Shakespeare
(abridged), which
opens July 29.
"A Marvelous Party!"
plays through June 26
in the Keating Main-


stage at Florida Studio
Theatre, 1241 N. Palm
Ave., Sarasota. Perfor-
mances are evenings at
8 p.m. Tuesday through
Saturday, Saturday
matinees at 2 p.m. and
Sunday performances
at 3 and 7 p.m. Tickets


are $19-$32 per person.
The three-show series
price is a bargain with
tickets selling for $29-
$42 per person for all
three shows. Order

'Late Nite Catechism' is in a class by itself


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Everyone can benefit
from the Catechism class
taught by Nonnie
Newton-Breen at St.
Bruno's, also known as
the Golden Apple Dinner
Theatre in Sarasota.
Thursday, June 4,
Newton-Breen had a
class that seemed light
on Catholics, even
lapsed ones, but the rest
of us, mostly Protestants
and Jews, had just as
much fun, if not more.
The first lesson,
repeated a few times
during the evening had
to do with proper female
attire for the class.
"What would Mary
wear," Newton-Breen
said to Cara Herman
after helping her to
redesign her outfit a bit
with the addition of
some carefully placed
tissues.
Herman was one of
many audience mem-
bers who either shared
their knowledge of
Catholicism or who
learned things they
never knew. Those with


the right answers were
rewarded with gifts like
prayer cards, glow-in-
the-dark rosary beads or,
in one case, a card that
was pretty much a
guarantee of a smooth
arrival into heaven. Not
to be discussed at those
whose names ended up
on the blackboard.
"How many of you are
still using a St. Christo-
pher Medal," she asked.
"It's not doing you a bit
of good!"
That is because good
old St. Chris is no longer
a saint. Nor are two
others who were voted
out by those of us in the
audience that fateful
Thursday.
Lessons and com-
ments flew fast and
furious as the laughter,
which spewed forth from
all corners.
It was amazing how
many in that Thursday
night class nodded their
heads when Newton-
Breen spoke of the
Vulcan death grip.
In addition to being
funny, Newton-Breen

Jamie Adkins booked into Historic Asolo Theater


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Circus Incognitus is
the next one-man show
to come to the Historic
Asolo Theater at the John
and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art in
Sarasota.
Unlike the one-man
shows, "Nobody Don't
Like Yogi" with David
Howard as Yogi Berra or
"Charles Lindbergh: The
Lone Eagle," with Steve
Carroll as the Lone
Eagle, this one-man
show is more of a one-
man three-ring circus.
Running from June 10-
July 19, Circus Incogni-
tus features Jamie
Adkins, one of today's
shining circus stars.
Presented by the muse-
um in partnership with
Circus Sarasota, Adkins
has appeared with
Circus Eloize in Montreal
and performs with
Cirque du Soleil's show,
"Wintuk," at Madison
Square Garden in New
York City.
To become a cast
member in any Cirque
du Soleil show, perform-
ers must go beyond the
norm. Often, performers
combine multiple
talents. As Circus
Sarasota star Bello Nock
works as both a clown
and a daredevil, Adkins
combines clowning with
acrobatics and juggling
to create an act unlike
any other.
Back in the days of
Clown College, the top
clown in the Ringling
Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey Circus would
insist that any clown
remaining in the employ
of The Greatest Show on
Earth come up with new


tricks each year. No new
tricks no contract
renewal.
Cirque du Soleil
operates in the same
manner, forcing its stars
to constantly reach ever
higher in their effort to
entertain.
Circus Incognitus is a
result of that sort of
thinking, it also is the
third partnership with
Circus Sarasota, the not-
for-profit one-ring show
and arts educational
organization created by
Dolly Jacobs and Pedro
Reis to preserve Saraota's
longtime circus legacy.


During the June 18-
July 19 run of Circus
Incognitus, there will be
performances on
Wednesday and Thurs-
day at 11 a.m. and 2
p.m., Friday and Satur-
day at 2 and 7 p.m. and
on Sunday at 1 and 4
p.m.
Tickets for Circus
Incognitus are $12 per
person for adults, $10 for
children 12 and under
for daytime perform-
naces and $13 per
person for all ages for
the 7 p.m. shows.

Tampa Museum of Art offers one more moving experience


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
While the Cleveland
Museum of Art has been
in the throes of a
massive addition, the
Tampa Museum of Art
has been building an
entire museum. Tampa's
museum will be at a new
location in Curtis Hixon
Waterfront at 400 North
Ashley Drive, just a few
blocks down the street
from its former site.
Until July 11, TMA is
operating at an interim
location at 2306 North
Howard Ave., in West
Tampa. As the new
66,000-square-foot
museum is not expected
to be ready until early in
2010, the next few weeks
offer visitors the last
chance to see a Tampa
museum show until the
new facility opens.
From July 12 until
opening day, visitors will
have to visit the muse-
um's new Web site to see
the construction
progress. A Web cam
provides pictures every
30 minutes. The Web
site also contains
renderings of the
building under con-
struction, both interior
and exterior views. Visit

The common thread to
the art in the exhibition
is technology. The
exhibit showcases how
technology inspires
today's artists. Featured
artists represent faculty

Florida universities.

What's to come?
Scheduled to open in
the spring of 2010, the
new building will be
named the Cornelia

struction costs are
estimated at $26.6
million.
Designed by Stanley
Saitowitz, the larger
facility will more easily
be able to host a greater
variety of traveling


photography, and fine
art.
Upon graduation
Sanders began produc-
ing commercial illustra-
tions on a freelance
basis and has been
represented by agents in
New York and Chicago.
He has produced
illustrations for adver-
tising and promotional


shows curated at other
museums around the
globe and also to house
the museum's own
expanding collection.
At night, the building
will be a work of art
itself. Clad in pierced
aluminum, which is
expected to glow and
shimmer as the sun sets
each evening, it will
come alive at night when
the programmable LED
lighting beneath the skin
will provide an ever-

This could be the first
museum that people can
go to 24/seven and not
worry whether it is open
or not.
The building will
include spaces for
additional educational
programs and also will
offer access to events
occurring along Tampa's

being next to the updat-

also faces the Hillsbor-

to beg for an extension on her
home loan. Should Christine
follow her instincts and give the
old woman a break? Or should
she deny the extension to
impress her boss, Mr. Jacks
(David Paymer), and get a leg-up
on a promotion? Christine
fatefully chooses the latter,
shaming Mrs. Ganush and
dispossessing her of her home.

The Hangover (R) B
Two days before his wedding,
Doug and three friends drive to
Las Vegas fora wild and
memorable stag party. In fact,
when the three groomsmen wake

find Doug. With little time to
spare the three hazy pals try to
re-trace their steps and find
Doug so they can get him back
to Los Angeles in time to walk
down the aisle.

Imagine That (PG) B
Like many busy professionals,
Evan Danielson (Eddie Murphy) is
so focused on his career that

trying to fend off his company
rival (Thomas Haden Church).
But when little Olivia introduces
him to the inhabitants of her


imaginary land, Evan rediscovers
his inner child and finds the
answers to all his problems.

Playhouse chips in to help LBHS cast and crew


STAFF REPORT
The cast and crew of
Lemon Bay High School's
award-winning production
of "The Wedding Singer"
got a financial boost from
the Lemon Bay Playhouse,
which made a contribu-
tion to them as they try to
raise $80,000 so they can
attend an international
festival later this month.
"The Lemon Bay High
School Theater Depart-
ment is putting Engle-


wood, on the map,"
playhouse executive
director Jim Hanushek
said in announcing the
donation.
The LBHS cast and crew
performed "The Wedding
Singer" to standing
ovations at the Florida
State Thespian Festival
and so impressed judges
from the International
Thespian Festival that they
invited the Englewood
students to their event.


"The judges selected
Lemon Bay High School
Theater as one of the 'Top
Seven' high school theater
programs in the world,
and invited them to
perform at the Interna-
tional Thespian Festival in
late June, held at the
University of Nebraska-
Lincoln," Hanushek said.
"Lemon Bay's thespians
made such an impression
on the attending adjudica-
tors that they advised the


board to schedule 'The
Wedding Singer' as the
closing performance of the
festival," he added.
Students and theater
department boosters have
been working for the past
few weeks in an effort to
raise the money they need
to attend the festival.
As part of that fundrais-
ing effort, the cast and
crew will give two special
performances of "The
Wedding Singer" on

Taking a seat in the
recently restored and
renovated Sarasota Opera
House will cost less next
year for many patrons.
Single ticket prices have
dropped from $25 to $19
for the least expensive
seats in the house. As there
was last season, there is
one additional opera at
which to reap the single-
ticket savings. And, in the
case ofVerdi's "La Travia-
ta," which is being present-
ed in the fall season, there
will be an additional
performance for a total of
six. Subscription prices
range from $64.60 to $380
for the Winter Opera
Festival Series and from
$80.75 to $475 for a
combined six-program fall
and winter season pack-
age. This year, for the first
time, there are subscrip-
tion payment plans.
In addition to "La
Traviata," the fall season
will include Up Close,
Informal, On Stage, a
main-stage concert during
which the principal artists
from 'La Traviata" and the
audience are all on stage.
Continuing the Sarasota
Opera's famed Verdi cycle,
begun several years ago by
Maestro Victor DeRenzi,
"Giovanna d'Arco," an
earlier work by Verdi, will
be featured during the
Winter Opera Festival. Also
part of the winter series
are Mozart's "The Magic
Flute," Humperdinck's
"Hansel and Gretel" and a
pairing of "Cavalleria
rusticana" by Pietro
Mascagni and "Pagliacci"
by Ruggero Leoncavallo.
The winter season will
run from Feb. 6 through
March 21.
Single tickets will go on

In its restored and

ing to opera spokesman
Pat Horwell, the good
acoustics date to the
building's original use as a
vaudeville theater. The
theater was built in 1926
for A. G. Edwards, who
named the theater after
himself. Elvis Presley is
said to have played there
and, in 1952, the theater
was used for the World
Premier of the Cecil B.
DeMille film, "The Great-
est Show on Earth," which
was primarily filmed in
Sarasota.

season, the second season
under DeRenzi.
Thanks to the $20 million
renovation, today's opera
house has a larger pit and
state-of-the-art new

Under DeRenzi's leader-
ship, the opera has
developed apprentice and
studio artist programs,
from which many of the
opera's lesser roles are
filled. Several of those
performers have risen
through the ranks and
returned in later years to
perform in major roles.

the opera also maintains a

added two seafood
specials. Having deter-
mined that we both were
in a "Cowboy" mood for
our entrees, we decided
to share a "Cap'n" starter:
the Crow Key Taster
($10.95).
This dish consists of a
saut6ed crab cake and
three jumbo shrimp. For
an extra dollar we got
three jumbo Coconut
Shrimp with the chef's
secret Coco Sauce. The
expertly crusted shrimp


were enhanced by the
pineapple-flavored
sauce. The crab cake with
its remoulade sauce,
though tasty, would have
been better if the crab
were less finely
processed.
Dinners come with
soup and two "groceries:"
salad, baked or French
fried potatoes, rice pilaf,
baked beans or a veg-
etable. The soup of the
day was the chef's
version of Pasta e Fagiole,
a garlicky broth not too
heavy on the pasta and
beans. Delicious.

with crispy home-made
rolls, she got the Chicken

'Souvenir' -What the world needs now are more divas like Florence Foster Jenkins


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
What the world needs
now are more divas like
Florence Foster Jenkins,
the music-loving socialite
who inspired the Broad-
way show, "Souvenir."
Playing through June 28
in the Mertz Theatre is the
actual Broadway show,
from performers Judy Kaye
(Jenkins) and Donald
Corren (Cosme McMoon)
to stage manager Jack
Gianino.
Florence Foster Jenkins
had no clue about the
sounds that emanated
from her mouth when she
sang. That her wealthy
socialite friends encour-


aged her early on, led her
down the primrose path to
stardom and ultimately to
Carnegie Hall.
She was so bad that you
could not help but love her
or at least laugh at her,
which, unbeknownst to
her, is what most of her
"fans" did.
McMoon protected her
from the truth.
As her fame spread, "she
got happier," McMoon
said. "I find myself
admiring her ... I got to
where I almost preferred
the way she sang."
The show is like that too.
Kaye does bad so well it
becomes good in the end.
Her performance is

bike shop, 2224 El Jobean

Proceeds will benefit AWL
animals. Registrations for


further enhanced by her
outrageous dancing and
her equally outrageous
costumes designed by
Tracy Christensen.
Corren has a sense of
timing second to none -
for both piano and his
lines.
He becomes McMoon
on stage. As his admiration
for the diva grows, so does
his desire to protect her
from herself as much as
from the people who flock
to see her. For her
Carnegie Hall perfor-
mance, "2,000 people were
turned away," McMoon
said.
"Would her folly, or
madness, be enough to


the Poker Run starts at 9 a.m.
with the run beginning at
10 a.m. Hands cost $10
each. Adoption and
donation drive will be held

keep her safe?"
The recreation of the
Carnegie Hall perfor-
mance was one of the
show's highlights, not only
for the many costume
changes and dancing but
for such schticks as the
way Kaye would curtsy or
skip off stage or, as a
senorita, would slowly toss
one maraca from one
hand to another.
"She didn't hear the
laughter," McMoon said.
"She heard the bravos and
cheers."


Then she did the
laughing song, dressed
as a maid.
"Talulah Bankhead had
to be carried out,"
McMoon said.
"We were into encores.
They would not let her go."
No mere accompanist,
Corren's role in "Souvenir"
is as important to the
success of this show as
McMoon was to the
success of Jenkins.
Directed by Vivian
Matalon, who directed the
Broadway show, "Sou-


venir" closes out the
Asolo's 50th anniversary
season with style, leaving
Asolo fans with their own
souvenir a memorable
season.
Souvenir will play
through June 28 in the
