Sunshine complaint filed


with state attorney


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice resident Winston
Wilmore has filed a Sunshine
Law complaint with the state
attorney's office against the
five most recently elected city
council members.
The case was filed July 3 and
has been assigned to Dennis
Nales, Chief Assistant State
Attorney for the 12th Judicial
Circuit. Nales acknowledged
Monday by telephone that he
received the complaint and
said it was "being reviewed."
He didn't give a timeline on
how soon it would be ad-


dressed, saying he didn't want
to create any expectations.
Wilmore previously filed a
complaint with the Florida
Ethics Commission against
Vice Mayor Sue Lang, who he
said personally benefitted
from certain council actions.
The chief allegation was dis-
missed. Other allegations of
Sunshine law and public
records violations weren't ad-
dressed, in deference to the
Sunshine lawsuit against the
city, several council members
and some other board mem-
bers.
The city settled the suit in
February just prior to going to


trial after it admitted violations
occurred. The individual de-
fendants were dismissed from
the suit.
Wilmore's latest complaint
alleges that Mayor Ed Martin,
Vice Mayor Sue Lang and
council members Ernie Za-
vodnyik, John Moore and Kit
McKeon conspired to create a
voting bloc to improperly pay
the attorneys hired before the
city stepped in to represent all
the named defendants.
Wilmore's complaint is in
some aspects identical to an
ethics complaint filed last

New e-mails


defy court order


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Ramifications are growing
over Sunday's personal e-mail
exchange between Mayor Ed
Martin and council hopefuls
Ted Koszarski
and Jim Ben- .
nett.
Koszarski
inadvertently '
sent the e-
mail string to
the city serv-
er when he
blind car-
bon-copied Martin
Ernie Zavod-
nyik's city ac-
count instead of his personal
account.
In the e-mail Martin dis-
cussed short-term rentals and
economic development, and
offered Koszarski campaign
advice.
City Attorney Bob Anderson
said the exchange isn't a
Sunshine law violation, but
may have gone astray of the
court order and city policy -

the result of a court-approved
settlement that banned city
employees and elected or
appointed officials from using
their personal e-mail ac-
counts. He said he plans to
study the e-mails more and
will come up with an opinion
whether they constitute viola-
tions in a day or so.
Both Martin and Koszarski
said they believed the e-mail
exchanges weren't about city
business, and thus it was ap-
propriate to use their private e-
mail accounts since using the
city accounts for political cam-

Water is a great beverage, but claims that bottled water is superior to tap water are more fiction than fact.

Bottled water blues getting louder


BY DON BLAIR
CORRESPONDENT


What is going on around the world? Coun-
tries, counties, cities and companies are all
walking away from bottled water.
In the past several years a number of anti-
bottled water slogans have turned up, such as
"Just say no to bottled water," "Back to the tap"
and "Think outside the bottle." There must be a
reason.
As it turns out, there are a number of them
including the allegation that the healthiest
water simply does not come in a bottle.
Companies such as Coca-Cola and PepsiCo,
with their well-known Dasani and Aquafina
brands of bottled water, spend millions on ads
depicting freshness and purity when, in fact,
both of these brands use municipally treated
tap water as their source. In cases in which bot-
tlers state that certain beneficial ingredients are
added, it has also been shown and certified that
these additions often are of no appreciable
value health-wise. Visit www.bottledwater


blues.com for verification.
Two of the main reasons so many are turning
away from the bottle and back to the tap are
cost up to 10,000 times the cost of your tap
water, according to the Earth Policy Institute -
and those darn bottles, which can and do leach
harmful elements into their contents, such as
BisphenolA, which has been shown to be a can-
cer-causer. And don't forget, those bottles are
made from crude oil.
These facts have been stated by the En-
vironmental Protection Agency, the Natural
Resources Defense Council and even the Food
and Drug Administration.
Here is a verbatim statement from the FDA:
"Companies that market bottled water as being
safer than tap water are defrauding the Amer-
ican public." The Natural Resources Defense
Council chips in this comment: "The FDA's
standards for bottled water are in many ways
weaker than EPA rules that apply to big city tap
water."

Much-needed dredging project stalled


PHOTO COURTESY OF FRAN PALMER
Frequent contributor Fran Palmeri sent in this photo of a recent full
moon over Oscar Scherer State Park.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Dredging Lyons Bay in No-
komis has been considered de-
sirable for almost eight years.
A survey to measure its
depth by one of the waterfront
communities confirmed the
need. So did Sarasota County,
which passed an ordinance
ordering portions of the bay to
be dredged. And the West
Coast Inland Navigation Dis-
trict voted to contribute
$100,000 toward the estimated
$450,000 cost.
Yet, nothing has happened.
Hal Baar, a resident of the
Inlets, has pushed the effort
since it was proposed.


"So far, for naught," he said.
"Our much-needed dredging
is at a standstill. The need has
grown, and we must find a way
to get the project done."
Baar and some Inlets neigh-
bors retained engineers to
conduct a bathymetric survey.
County staff proposed an as-
sessment district that includes
all the waterfront properties,
plus the Inlets, Fairwinds, Dol-
phin Shores, Nokomis Oaks
and Shore Oaks communities.
The Inlets group circulated
a petition supporting a coun-
ty-funded engineering/envi-
ronmental study. They suc-
ceeded, obtaining signatures
from two-thirds of the owners
for a maintenance dredging


program over a 10-year period.
But progress stopped at that
point. The Fairwinds commu-
nity refused to submit any
signed petitions, and it repre-
sents a third of all the water-
front parcels. The docks at
Fairwinds, many of which are
in disrepair, were paid for by
individual owners, not the
community. Some docks are
being replaced, following a
finding by insurance carriers
that they had become a liabili-
ty.
Implementing the dredging
program requires approval by
two-thirds of the 181 property
owners on the bay. Baar said

FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY

Less than three years
after obtaining its first
10 diesel-electric hybrid
buses, Sarasota County
Area Transit has added
four of the smaller hybrid
buses that are expected
to be even more fuel-effi-
cient and less costly to
operate.
The smaller buses
will be used on both
neighborhood and reg-
ular routes.
The hybrid buses are


an important part of
Sarasota County's com-
mitment to reducing fos-
sil fuel use through the
2030 Challenge initia-
tive, which was adopted
by the Sarasota County
Commission in 2006.
Together, the 14 hybrid
buses are expected to
save the county $228,000
a year in fuel costs.
The 29-foot-long hy-
brids just purchased
cost about $517,000,
compared to a standard
diesel bus at approxi-
mately $317,000.

Chamber members set the record straight


Business interests rail against city leaders
for their draft comprehensive plan, saying


it 'encourages sprawl.'
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Members of the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce filled city hall
to standing room only
capacity on Tuesday with
a strong message don't
kill the city's economy.
Members packed the
chambers to let council
know in no uncertain
terms they are unhappy
with their performance.
Council faced a bar-
rage of criticism that it's
hurting small business
owners and property val-
ues, and ensuring a slow
economic recovery.
"I am here to make
sure the voices of small
businesses are heard
with regard to the pro-
posed comprehensive
plan," said John Ryan,
president and CEO of the
chamber.
Recent blogs by
Mayor Ed Martin, Ryan
said, state that business
people were misled
regarding the implica-
tions of adopting the
comp plan, which is
scheduled for its final
public hearings begin-
ning in two weeks.
"I'm here to state for
the record that I couldn't
agree more," Ryan said.
"They have been misled,
but by the mayor himself,
who repeatedly assured
the chamber and our
members that the need-
ed flexibility to make this
a sustainable and eco-
nomically feasible docu-
ment was already within
the plan. His assurances
could not have been fur-
ther from the truth."
Council has held out
the draft plan as an
example of sustainable,
smart growth, but Ryan
said it's neither.
"The plan is simply
about the stated attempt
to limit height and densi-
ty regardless of the eco-
nomic impact this would
have on our community.
"Infill and redevelop-
ment are keys to sustain-
able, smart growth. .. .By
lowering the density
within the city, this plan
encourages sprawl along
the city borders instead
of within the city (center)
where development is


needed to sustain our
historic downtown."
Ryan said eventually
the plan did provide
some flexibility, but it was
due to the chamber's dili-
gence and not because it
"was already there."
He reserved judgment
on the latest, seventh
draft, unveiled today,
until members have a
chance to review it.
Unity
The presentation was
part setting-the-record-
straight, and part a show
of unity.
At a previous comp
plan workshop Ryan said
he was questioned as to
who exactly he repre-
sented.
"I ask those in the
room today who feel the
chamber represents them
and their views to stand at
this time," Ryan said.
The crowd erupted
with deafening applause
- the kind that hasn't
been heard in council
chambers since golfers
demonstrated nearly
three years ago against
proposals to develop
airport property and
upgrade Lake Venice Golf
Club.
"We cannot ignore
how many are here today
expressing their view-
points," said Council
Member John Moore.
"Most days here it's virtu-
ally empty. I think I can




Cat'mtc S


Ryan


speak on behalf of coun-
cil when I say this was
somewhat of a surprise
today. This is democracy
in action and I appreci-
ate it."
Moore pledged to go
through the draft comp
plan again and "try to
scrutinize everything you
have raised."
Members comment
Council spent two
hours listening to public
comments, mostly from
chamber members, but
also a few from the
Venice Taxpayers League
members, whose per-
sonal attacks against
speakers drew occasion-
al boos and hecklers.
"This council, by its
voting record, is ... a no-
growth reality," said busi-
ness owner CJ Fishman,
"that has divided the
community and (is)
bleeding us, including
our retires, dry. You have
done nothing to bridge
the gap. The turnout
today should remind you
that you represent all the
people all the time, not
some of the people all of
the time."
Lynn Collett, owner of
two properties in Golden
Beach, asked council to
put aside its political

agenda and place a draft
short-term rental on
hold.
"Remember, when
you limit our property
rights and take away our
right to rent short term,
you reduce the ability (to
sell) our homes. If we
can't have tenants and
rent, and rent responsi-
bly, we are going to lose
our homes." Council's
actions, Collett said, "will
diminish the property
values of all Venetians
everywhere."
Later in the meeting
council voted unani-
mously to adopt the new
ordinance banning any


new short-term rentals.
Former Venice mayor
Dean Calamaras said the
city's reputation as one of
the 10 best places to
retire "didn't happen by
accident." He gave credit
to former city councils
for creating new stan-
dards that protect the
city core.
"The constant stuff
coming from this coun-
cil, from some of you, the
constant insults to past
councils, is just some-
thing we shouldn't have
to put up with."
Jillian Gates, 17, a2009
Venice High graduate,
said she hoped to retire
in Venice one day.
"I wonder if this is the
last I will see of Venice ...
of a town that is shrivel-
ing, for the voice of the
youth is all but ignored.
Will I have to wait for my
retirement to live here?"
Electioneers
The public comment
period also gave council
candidates a chance to
weigh in. Two seats are
up for election in
November.
Three of four candi-
dates who've announced
they will run were there
to testify on Tuesday.
Emilio Carlesimo asked
council to give the same
attention to the Esplanade
and Tarpon Center that it
has given to the Golden
Beach neighborhood.
His opponent Ted
Koszarski said the name-
calling during the public
comment period wasn't
helpful and asked people


to work together.
Harry Wallia said he
watched the city grow in
a good way and is "now
seeing the city going in
the wrong direction."
"Venice used to be
the most friendly city.
What is our reputation
today?"
He chastised Martin
for his recent behind-
the-scenes e-mail coach-
ing Koszarski and candi-
date Jim Bennett on polit-
ical campaign issues. The
e-mail appeared on the
city server over the
weekend. City Attorney
Bob Anderson initially
said the e-mails violated
the city's e-mail policy.
"Didn't we learn from
$2.3 million (that could
be) assessed against the
city?" asked Wallia.
"We are in a deficit,
but we don't stop. Are we
ready to go for another
lawsuit? Why not buy
gold studded ear plugs"
for council members
who live near Golden
Beach, he asked. "It
would be cheaper than
all these lawsuits."
"Our city needs peace,
calm, and services pro-
vided in a calm manner,
not (for people) to pick
up the paper and read
the three-ring circus
orchestrated by the
mayor. If there is some
honor or conscience, I
think you should resign."
His comments drew
the last sustained applause
of the evening.

POLICE BEAT


Dog causes
altercation

A dogfight led to an
arrest, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report.
A man and his 10-
year-old daughter were
walking their dog in the
Tanager Road area in
Venice Saturday when
they saw a large dog run-
ning toward them. The
dog's owner was running
behind it yelling that his
dog didn't like other
dogs.
According to the re-
port, the two dogs began
fighting and the girl was
bitten by Robert Fedi-
gan's dog. The girl's dad
pulled a pocket knife out
and stabbed the dog sev-
eral times to protect his
daughter.
Fedigan's dog fled the
area and a verbal argu-
ment ensued between
Fedigan and the girl's fa-
ther. Fedigan told dep-
uties that the girl's father
threatened to kill him
while the knife was still in
his hand.
All parties returned to
their homes, but Fedigan
got a hammer from his
residence and then went
after the girl's father at
their residence in the 600
block of Briarwood Road.
Fedigan threatened to
kill the girl's father with
the hammer.
Fedigan, 43, 300 block
Grant Road, Venice was
arrested and charged
with aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon.


His bond is $1,000.

with the state attorney
on the girl's father for
aggravated assault.

sponded to treat the girl's
injuries.

BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

Awaiting trial in the
Sarasota County Jail on
drug charges, Donna
Clark, 44, has not seen
her children since
February. Actually, she
has not been able to
see any family or
friends since she was
jailed.
The women's floor
on which Clark lives
has 160-plus women
and five visiting sta-
tions where inmates
can see visitors via TV
monitors and phones.
But, only one of the five
monitors is working,
Clark said in a tele-
phone interview.
"My people have
tried every week to visit
me and every time they
are told it's filled up,"
she said as she cried
quietly into the phone.
"It would be nice if they
made it easier for us to
get visits."
Richard Montemagno,
captain of the correc-
tion services bureau for
Sarasota County, veri-
fied that only one mon-
itor out of five is work-
ing on the women's
floor in the Sarasota
County Jail.
"We're replacing the
system," he said. "It's
antiquated and can no
longer be supported. It
will be replaced by
something more up-to-
date."
The county's video
visitation system has
been in place since
2003.
"The county is ulti-
mately responsible for
replacing the system,"
he said.


Impacts
Inmates in local coun-
ty jails serving sen-
tences of less than a
year must often rely on
the phone to visit with
family if they can
visit with family at all.
Inmates at the Sarasota
County Jail may not
receive visitors under
age 12, making the par-
enting classes of ques-
tionable practical value
while they are in jail.
"First the mother
goes through the guilt
of explaining to the
child why mommy is
in jail," said Brenda
Zofrea, a local author
and educator. "If you
decide to be honest,
the child can't even
come to see you if
they're under age 12.
The child goes through
abandonment issues.
It's horrible."
Other communica-
tion with the outside
world is limited as well.
Sarasota County Jail
inmates can receive
envelopes but the con-
tents are checked for
contraband. Newspaper
articles and church bul-
letins are not allowed.
The jail recently sub-
scribed to the New York
Times and USA Today,
but no local newspa-
pers are allowed.
Contact visitation, in
which inmates can see
their visitors sitting in
front of them, has
almost become a thing
of the past in jails, said
Maj. Jim Lilly, division
commander for court
services and corrections
with Sarasota County.
Most jails, including
Sarasota's, use video
visitation in which


inmates and visitors
don't meet face-to-
face.
Up to 75 percent of
inmates are awaiting
trial in county jails and
the average length of
stay can be about 23
days.
Clark said her only
bond hearing was can-
celed and her public
defender has been
changed several times.
"It gets really rough
when you can't see any-
body, can't talk to any-
body and they keep
changing my public
defender," she said.

KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME COLUMNIST

There is one common
denominator in the major-
ity of auto burglaries: Most
of the cars were unlocked.
In some cases the keys
were left in the ignition,
which also resulted in the
theft of the vehicle.


In recent police reports,
I was amazed to see
some of the items stolen
from vehicles: pocket-
books, wallets, expen-
sive sunglasses, com-
puters, cell phones,
guns, cash, paintings,
business records, credit
cards, checkbooks, cloth-
ing, medications and, in
the case of a medical doc-
tor, his prescription pad.
You can protect your-
self and help authorities
by following these rules:
1. Never leave your
keys in the ignition, not
even for a moment or two.
2. Always lock your
vehicle when you exit.
3. Engage your alarm
(if you have one) any time


you leave your vehicle.
4. Do not leave in plain
view inside your vehicle
any items, objects of
value, or something that
looks valuable. Such items
draw a thief's attention.
5. Lock in your trunk,
out of sight, anything you
don't want to be stolen.
Be sure when you do that
no one is watching you.
6. Immediately report
any suspicious activity.

said. "I didn't believe it
related to matters com-
ing before city council. I
still do. I simply respond-
ed, hit the reply button.
Given the appearance of
doing something (im-
proper), I have to be very
careful from now on, su-
per super-duper careful."
Martin said he as-
sumed it was not city
business and, in an e-
mail response to City
Manager Isaac Turner on
Tuesday said, "I naturally
regretted it."
"In keeping with ad-
vice I received last year
from the ethics commis-
sion attorney by phone,
an elected official can
support candidates, en-
dorse them, etc., but
must not use the office or
status as mayor to en-
gage in such activities,"
Martin said. "It appears
to me that I could not use
the city e-mail for such
purposes ... and some
folks think I can't private-
ly, either."
He's looking to Ander-
son for some direction.
Clearly the e-mails dis-
cussed city business, An-
derson said, but were the
comments relating to
political campaign ap-
propriately not sent via
the city server?
Attorneys weigh in
A court-approved set-
tlement ordered the city
to create an e-mail policy
that addresses e-mail
usage. It bans use of per-
sonal e-mail accounts.
The only exception is
when city council mem-
bers receive an e-mail to
their personal accounts.
Those must be forward-
ed to their city account
before responding.
A team of attorneys for
Sunshine suit plaintiff
Anthony Lorenzo said
they're looking into the e-
mail string and others for
possible violations of the
court settlement and city
policy.
"We need to have fur-
ther discussions with our
client on how we are go-
ing to respond," said An-
drea Mogensen. "This
has become a subject of
debate determining
what is a violation. Some-
body in a leadership po-
sition would want to
avoid that."
The new technology
usage policy "was the so-
lution to avoid that exact
debate."
She called the debate a
"slippery slope."
"If you request to see
those e-mails and (a per-
son) takes the position that
it is not a public record, the
only other option is to liti-
gate," Mogensen said.
"Obviously, this latest
e-mail addresses city
business. Can we trust he
(Mayor Martin) is being
responsible? He simply
hasn't proven he can be
trusted on that."
Mogensen's co-counsel,
Matthew Leish, said the
stipulated agreement with
the city gives the court the
right to enforce violations
of the settlement.
"If they are out there
violating the settlement,
the court does have the
authority to enforce the
terms," Leish said. "We
are seriously considering
our options."
The court could give a
free pass, find individuals
in contempt or worse.
"If we have to go back
into court to enforce the
settlement we would likely
seek to recover fees incur-
red doing that," Leish said.
"Settlement was sup-
posed to be simple and
clear and easy to comply
with don't use your
personal e-mail account.
So I'm at a loss as to


describe why these prob-
lems keep coming up."
In the past few weeks
Mogensen made another
records request seeking
correspondence from a
number of individuals.
She was particularly in-
terested in an e-mail ex-

change from City Clerk
Lori Stelzer to Earl Quandt,
a member of the Parks and
Recreation Advisory
Board, and Laurel Schiller,
chair of the Environmental
Task Force. In the e-mails
Stelzer asked both to cease
using their personal e-mail
accounts.
On July 6, the parks


board took the unusual
step of soliciting a formal
memorandum of under-
standing between the city
and board pertaining to
insurance and liabilities for
board members. The city
has never provided such
an agreement.

that he has enough notarized signa-
tures to that effect. But he and the
county agree that the participation of
Fairwinds is desirable.
Paul Semenec, the county's water-
ways manager, appreciates Baar's
effort.


"All property owners on the bay
have equal opportunity to lease dock
space. So all will benefit," he said. "But
the assessment district that will be
created for dredging purposes really
requires including the holdout com-
munity, even if the required two-
thirds of all properties has been
achieved."

These organizations,
and many more, strongly
recommend the use of a
home water filter as by
far the cheapest and
most reliable way to en-
sure yourself and your
family of safe drinking
water.
The Web site Bottled


WaterBlues.com adds
this note: Filtering out
chlorine, lead and other
possible contaminants at
the point of use, just
prior to consumption, is
really the only way to
know for sure about the
quality of your water.
The most common
plastic bottle used for the
water you buy is polycar-
bonate and these are the


ones that leach unwant-
ed elements into the
water you drink. Further-
more, they are cluttering
our landfills, even our
rivers, streams and
oceans with thrown-


as garbage 1,500 every
second.
Early last year a con-
ference of U.S. mayors
meeting in Washington
passed a resolution, with
support from restau-


away bottles that take rants, businesses and
hundreds of years to public interest groups, to
decompose. Of the more phase out municipal use
than 30 billion bottles a of bottled water in favor
year that we acquire, 86 of tap water. It's been
percent of them end up reported that producers


like Coca-Cola, PepsiCo
and Nestle, feeling the
heat, are seeking to ad-
dress consumer con-
cerns by using less plas-
tic in their bottles.
No breakthroughs
have been reported as
yet and there is still the
incredible cost as com-
pared to the water that
comes into your own
home.

week by former council
member Bill Willson
against Moore.
That isn't by coinci-
dence, Wilmore said. He
and Willson discussed
their concerns, Wilmore
said, with Willson decid-
ing to file an ethics com-
plaint while he chose to
seek a remedy through
another avenue.
Wilmore and Willson
describe a three-stage
process to avoid restric-
tions on the council
members that ultimately
led to paying fees for a
number of council mem-
bers.
Martin ultimately had
$26,000 in legal fees paid.
Moore got $123,000 and
John Simmonds received
$114,000 for his defense
and $20,000 for comput-
er forensics.
'To fool the public'
Not only that, Wilmore
said, but council didn't
discuss whether the vio-
lations took place within
the "scope of their em-
ployment" or whether
their actions "served a
public purpose," specific
requirements under the
Sunshine law.
Moore argued weeks
before the June 9 meeting
at which council decided
to pay private legal fees
that there was no need to
debate the issue, or hire a
special master to settle
the matter because the
city ordinance requires
the city to pay the bills
and is automatic.
Wilmore alleges that
council went beyond the
published confines of the
council agenda for its
June 9 meeting. Prior to
the meeting, the pub-
lished agenda and com-
ments by the city attor-
ney and others stated the
meeting was to settle pro-
cedural matters alone.
The agenda stated coun-
cil members would
determine if they should
make the decision to vote
on the matter or hire a
special master to make
the decision, and wheth-
er to make a preliminary
decision to process the
bills prior to a September
evidentiary hearing over
the payment of Sunshine
plaintiff Anthony Lor-
enzo's attorney fees.
But council voted to
pay the fees. Wilmore
said that failed to provide
the public with proper
notice, in violation of
state law and city ordi-
nances.
"To fool the public, the
agenda listed that this
discussion was to be pro-
cedural only," Wilmore
said, "but, after five hours
of talk, Martin then
specifically asked the
council if anyone had a
motion to present what
would help out Moore
and Simmonds by having
the city pay their bills.
Zavodnyik immediately
so moved with Lang and
McKeon voting yes, and it
passed. The agenda was
deliberately false ... and
there was no discussion
at all about whether what
they had done was in the
course of their duties.

MainStreet's year is on track


FROM VENICE REGIONAL
MEDICAL CENTER


Venice Regional Medical Center has
earned the Gold Seal of Approval from
the Joint Commission for Primary
Stroke Centers. VRMC earned this dis-
tinction after the commission conduct-
ed an on-site review in June.
"Venice Regional Medical Center
demonstrated that its stroke care pro-
gram follows national standards and
guidelines that can significantly im-
prove outcomes for stroke patients,"
said Jean E. Range, M.S., R.N., C.PH.Q.,
executive director, Disease-Specific
Care Certification, Joint Commission.
Each year about 700,000 people
experience a new or recurrent stroke,
which is the nation's third leading cause
of death. On average, someone suffers a
stroke every 45 seconds and someone
dies of a stroke every 3.1 minutes. Stroke
is a leading cause of serious, long-term
disability in the United States, with
about 4.7 million stroke survivors alive
today.
"We're proud to achieve the distinc-
tion," said Melody Trimble, VRMC CEO.
"Joint Commission Primary Stroke
Center Certification recognizes our com-
mitment to providing outstanding care
to our patients and our community."


VRMC had received the state's stroke
certification last January.
The commission's Primary Stroke
Center Certification is based on the rec-
ommendations for primary stroke cen-
ters published by the Brain Attack
Coalition and the American Stroke
Association's statements and guide-
lines for stroke care. The commission
launched the program the nation's
first in 2003.
Founded in 1951, the commission
evaluates and accredits more then
15,000 health-care organizations and
programs in the United States, includ-
ing more than 8,000 hospitals and
home-care organizations, and more
than 6,800 other health-care organiza-
tions that provide long-term care,
assisted living, behavioral health care,
laboratory and ambulatory care ser-
vices.
The commission also accredits
health plans, integrated delivery net-
works and other managed care entities.
In addition, it provides certification of
disease-specific care programs, prima-
ry stroke centers and health care
staffing services.
An independent, not-for-profit orga-
nization, the commission is the nation's
oldest and largest standards-setting
and accrediting body in health care.


Funeral association under local control


There is no doubt
funerals have changed,
said John Williams, co-
owner with wife Michelle
of Farley Funeral Homes
and Crematory.
The baby boomer gen-
eration no longer wants
the casket buried under
the tree at the top of the
hill, he said preferring
celebrations of life, a
more personalized event
often incorporating the
life of the individual with
strong hobby or work
influences.
Farley has introduced
small receptions at the
funeral home at which
guests gather socially
before or after the mem-
orial service.
This weekend Wil-
liams becomes president
of the Florida Funeral
Directors Association at
its annual convention
and trade show in Na-
ples. His theme for 2009-
10 will be to create more
partnerships with allied
members, licensed ven-
dors, suppliers, hospices,
nursing homes and vet-
erans cemeteries.
Williams has been ac-
tive in the family busi-
ness for 12 years and fol-
lows his father-in-law,
David Farley, who was
president of the associa-
tion in 1979.
"There is no doubt the
economy has affected
funeral homes with
downsizing, including of
fewer attending services,
especially from out of
town," said Williams.
The association has
300 members who serve
the state's population of
18 million.
About 135,000 people
die annually in Florida.


Scoops moves
Bruce Baker's busi-
ness, Scoops Working

He gave OK for Apollo 11


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS
COLUMNIST

Before the first lunar-
landing mission, Apollo
11, achieved its historic
task, Venice resident Alan
Carter stood inside the
ascent vehicle.
"It could not have
taken off without my
rubber stamp of approv-
al, because inspectors
had found an unautho-
rized material part," said
Carter.
An employee of
Grumman Aerospace at
the time, Carter was
summoned to the tiny
ascent vehicle in which
mission astronauts,
Commander Neil Arm-
strong, the descent mod-
ule vehicle pilot, Michael
Collins, the ascent vehi-
cle pilot who would keep
circling the moon, and
lunar excursion module
pilot Edwin Aldrin would
travel.
Carter recalled the
exciting incident a few
days before the anniver-
sary of the launch the 40
years ago on July 20,
1969, as we discussed his
retirement on Aug. 5 as
division manager of AAA
Auto Club South after 38
years of service.
Born in Manhattan,
N.Y., Carter graduated
from the Academy of
Aeronautics. A mechani-
cal engineer, he worked
for Grumman for seven
years, and was assigned
to the lunar space mod-
ule project at Bethpage,
N.Y. His responsibility
was to calculate the
weight and center of
gravity of every piece of
equipment on the F-14
and the proposed space
shuttle.
The lunar command
module in which the
astronauts stood for a
few minutes as they land-
ed on the moon had less
interior space than a

Alan Carter, moon landing enthusiast and division manag-
er for AAA Auto Club South, is pictured in his office prior
to his retirement, with a scale model of the first lunar mod-
ule to land on the moon and a replica of the Triple AAA
race car.


Smart car, said Carter. In
the '60s, weight was a
very critical factor com-
pared to today, when
space shuttles' gigantic
propulsion systems pro-
vide such powerful
thrust.
Not liking the uncer-
tainty of employment
with Grumman, which
depended upon govern-
ment contracts, he de-
cided to move to Florida.
Applying for a job as
trainee manager in 1971
with the Peninsula Motor
Club of St. Petersburg, he
was dissatisfied with his
pay and returned to New
York.
But the next day his
car was stolen and he
considered it an omen,
so he returned to Florida,
accepted the job and
remained with the com-
pany for 38 years. At the
time there were nine
branches; now there are
70.


Traveling to offices
throughout the state as
the company expanded,
eventually becoming
AAA, he has worked in
Sarasota, Fort Myers,
Bradenton and Tallahas-
see. In 1976, he opened
the Venice office with five
employees and a few
years later moved it to
the 18,000-square-foot,
two-story office at 2100
South Tamiami Trail,
where 25 employees
serve 48,000 members
today.
A Rotarian for 28
years, Carter served on
the Loveland Center
board for six years and
the Sarasota Traffic Ad-
visory Council for 16
years. He enjoys giving
presentations and is
aptly known as the local
lunar moon landing
expert.

Report will help locals with algal blooms


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


State wildlife and
health officials want to
help local health and
government officials deal
with toxic red tide and
other algal blooms.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the
Florida Department of
Health have released a
technical report to guide
local health officials in
addressing large toxic
algal blooms.
Jan Landsberg, a state
researcher and contribu-
tor to the report, said it
should be read as an out-
reach and education tool
for the general public, as
well as local officials and
doctors.
The single-cell algae
organism Karenia bre-
vis, better known as red
tide has been known
to wreak havoc along
Florida's Gulf Coast,
including Venice and
other area beaches. The
red tide often results in
fish kills and respiratory
problems in humans.
According to the
report, when large
numbers of the red tide
algae organisms die and
decompose, they tend
to absorb the oxygen
needed for fish and
other sea life. They also
encourage the increase
of sulfides and other
toxins in the water.
Fish kills not only
leave unsightly messes
along shorelines, but
they also cause increases
in bacterial growth as
fish carcasses decay.
Red tide, however,
isn't the only harmful
algae species found in
Florida. The report states
that 50 marine and 20
freshwater algae species
can trigger fish kills and
human health threats.
People can also become
ill after eating tainted
fish or shellfish in the
wake of a toxic algal
bloom.
Since January 2008,
the Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute report-
ed 24 cases of fresh and
saltwater fish kills result-
ing from prolific algal
blooms. The blooms,
however, are nothing new
- the report includes a
1959 photograph of a
state wildlife officer with a
variety of dead fish found
on Venice Beach after a
red-tide outbreak.
Landsberg said a 2002
outbreak of an algae sax-
itoxin in the Indian River
Lagoon proved more
deadly than any red tide
and led to the poisoning
of puffer fish.
Saxitoxins are found
in Tampa Bay and
Charlotte Harbor, but at
levels so low that they
pose no threat to human
health, Landsberg said.
"From 2002 to May
2004, cases of poisoning
from puffer fish in Flor-
ida, New Jersey, Virginia
and New York were
linked to fish originating
from the Indian River
Lagoon," the report stat-
ed. "The sudden appear-
ance of (saxitoxins) at
potentially lethal con-
centrations in an area
previously not known to
have such toxins sig-
naled an unprecedented
and emerging public
health threat and a nat-
ural resource challenge
to Florida."
Economic impacts
from harmful algal
blooms are often diffi-
cult to assess. However,
some estimates suggest
that between 1987 and
1992, the average annu-
al loss of revenue from
all algal blooms in the
United States was $50
million, based upon the
value of a dollar in


2000.
"This is a conservative
estimate," the new report
stated. An estimated $15


million to $20 million
was lost in Florida alone
after three to five months
of coastal red tide out-
breaks in the 1970s.
'A breakdown of the
estimated costs suggest
45 percent for impacts to
public health, 37 percent
for commercial fisheries,

OUR VIEW



State Road 776 plan needs community


S ix years ago Sarasota County
adopted a plan intended to di-
rect new development along
State Road 776 in what was hoped
would be a progressive direction.
The gateway road would see clus-
tered, mixed-use development that
would emphasize open space and
pedestrian trails. It would encourage
"eco-tourism" and "eco-friendly"
businesses.
Sounded good.
The projects that have emerged,
however, have consistently offended
residents.
Using the S.R. 776 Corridor Plan as
a guide, developers have proposed
projects that many felt were too high
and too dense and that didn't fit in
well with existing neighborhoods.
Condos would loom over single-story
homes. A large-scale, high-rise busi-
ness development would ruin the
character of nearby low-impact
neighborhoods. Instead of an eco-


friendly business came a convenience
store-gas station.
Maybe not so good, after all.
It's a curious thing that a develop-
ment plan so recently designed for
this narrow, 8.5-mile-long communi-
ty has been so unfailingly resisted by
that community.
Part of the problem may be with
developers who have repeatedly shot
for the high-end of permitted uses on
any given parcel of land makingg
out," as it's known. (None of those
projects has been permitted as origi-
nally proposed.)
But clearly, something is wrong.
There's often a natural resistance to
change, but this cuts deeper. The
community doesn't like its plan. Re-
quested zoning changes are met with
petitions and large, angry crowds.
Sarasota County commissioners
decided recently to have their plan-
ning staff review the S.R. 776 Corridor
Plan and come back with recommen-


dations. That's good, because it's obvi-
ous something should be changed.
We don't feel the plan should be
tossed out; it still has its good points.
Walking and bike paths are a plus. The
ban on large, roadside walls would
make S.R. 776 more attractive. In-
terior roads connecting neighbor-
hoods might keep traffic off the main
road. And some clustered develop-
ment that leaves more green space is
a good thing.
But the plan just allows too much,
especially too much height and too
much intensity. Conflicts with neigh-
borhood character and compatible
uses must be eased. And the revision
should proceed with a lot more com-
munity involvement, preferably with
the guidance of an advisory board like
the Lemon Bay/Myakka Trail Scenic
Highway Committee.
It's hard to avoid the impression
that the original process was flawed,
that along the way it got off track. An


original survey showed that what res-
idents overwhelmingly liked most
was "convenient location" being
close to existing shopping and ser-
vices. People wanted a grocery store,
but they wanted it in the existing
Lemon Bay Shopping Plaza. What did
they see as the most compatible use?
Single-family homes.
Charlotte County's plan for S.R. 776
also calls for clustered, mixed-use
development. But its more-intense
development "nodes" are larger and
spaced out farther on a longer stretch
of road. On its face, Charlotte's plan
seems to be compatible with current
uses while directing future develop-
ment in a better way. That's what
these plans are supposed to do, after
all.
We're confident something better
can and will be devised. There's no
good reason every new project should
send people running for their pitch-
forks.


Color me proud

PUBLISHER


Last year the Gondo-
lier Sun, failed to be
named the best weekly
newspaper in its division
of the Florida Press Asso-
ciation better weekly
newspaper contest for
the first time in 10 years.
For our staff that was very
disappointing as they
take great pride in their
work and strive to be the
best.
This year the award
ceremony was on the
east coast. Editor Bob
Mudge and I are a ner-
vous wreck during these
presentations.
As each award was
called, it looked like it
was going to be difficult
to win again. Then they
announced that Bob won
first place for an editorial
(of course, we have had a
lot of good subject matter
to write about this year).
He also won a first for
First Amendment de-
fense that even garnered
him a cash reward, and
for headline writing. We
won an award for best
editorial page, even for
an obituary by Brooky
Brown. Our previous
sports editor, Tripp Mil-
ler, won a sports story
award.
Bob also won a first for
the funny story he wrote
about his wife running
around with other men.
Of course, the other men
were her workout part-
ners. Bob's sense of a
good workout is going to
the refrigerator. After he
won the trophy, Melinda,
his wife, commented that
he now really does have a
trophy wife.
Longtime staffer Kim
Cool won a conservation
award with Rob Broyles,
who did the art for the
project on sea turtles.
This year we have reorga-
nized a lot and part of
that brought some tal-
ented help to the copy
desk, which lays out the
paper. We have added
some exciting graphic
designs that helped us
win an award in overall
graphic design.
Yet the biggest thrill
was winning first in gen-
eral excellence. This
speaks to the work of the


entire staff, from writers
to ad sales and designers
to press work.
Sometimes the things
we don't win both sur-
prise us and disappoint
us. This year for the first
time in a lot of years we
did not win an award for
community service.
Since this is an important
part of our mission, this
is something we will refo-
cus on.
We were surprised to
not win anything for our
cartoons, of which there
have been many really
good ones. We had fewer
photography awards,
although Justin Fennell
won a first for us.
We have rarely won for
investigative reporting as
that takes a lot of re-
sources, particularly a lot
of time and a specialized
talent. Yet we have want-
ed to do this.
I was thrilled for our
team of professionals
and hope they continue
to bring you the best
work in the state.

On a sour note from
the Florida Press Associ-

not so proud of another
award handed out. This
was from the First
Amendment Founda-
tion, which gave an
award to Andrea Mogen-
son for her fight with
Venice City Council and
city board members to
keep public information
and meetings in the sun-
shine. It was a first-time
award.
Upon returning, I
learned of more potential
bad uses of personal e-
mails by the mayor.
About when you think it
might be over, it just isn't
over.

Bob Peters and Chris
Skelton sent me some
pictures from Dunedin,
where they were standing
in front of some wall art.
They were wondering
why we can't have more
of the same in Venice.
We do have many
great murals in Venice
but that was brought to a
halt more than a year ago
when the mayor set up a
new task force to set rules
for our murals. The pic-
tures made me ask if that

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


You deserve a pat on the back


Editor:
As the United Way of South Sarasota County winds
down its 2008-09 campaign this month and gears up
for its 2009-10 campaign, I think it is appropriate for
me to thank everyone who provided us the opportu-
nity to fund 40 local agency programs that touched,
changed and improved the lives of more than 22,000
families in the South County communities of Venice,
Englewood, North Port, Laurel, Nokomis and Osprey.
Through contributions, volunteer time, media cov-
erage and events, the support of those who live here
made a huge difference in the lives of families in need.
To better bring it into prospective: a special-needs
child received therapy; a senior unable to get out and
about received a welcome visit and a hot meal; a hun-
gry family was fed; an abused child received counsel-
ing; a family was able to get affordable day care and
thereby go to work. And the list goes on.
In these especially tough economic times, if you
supported our United Way, you supported those in
need in our community, and this is one of the greatest
gifts you can give.
Words cannot describe a child's face receiving a
first pair of new shoes, or a hungry person receiving
food. A thank-you seems so inadequate but it is all we
have. So, thank you so much for your support and
making a difference.
If it weren't for you and you know who you are -
our community would be a little sadder place to live
and a lot of those who live here would have had no
relief from their anguish.
You made it happen.

I also want to thank all
of the staff and volun-
teers of Florida's Blood

nated the gift of life. You
are all truly heroes.

Changing channels
left and right
Editor:
While looking for
MSNBC the other day, I
noticed it wasn't being
carried on its former
position of channel 42. I
looked to the channel
guide for its new posi-
tion; it's now at 83 and
185. I thought, "OK, no
problem."
I tuned my digital tele-
vision to 83 and saw
snow. Hmm. I went to a
TV in another room that
is using Comcast's cable
box and alas, there it was
on channel 83.
Now, as a Comcast
subscriber we are enti-
tled to one free cable box
per household.
I called Comcast as to


why it moved the all
news channels and was
told that MSNBC made
the choice to go digital
before some other sta-
tions.
But I have a digital TV
Did MSNBC also request
to have its signal scram-
bled? Why not FOX
News?
So "for now," as I was
told by my friendly local
Comcast representative,
if I want to be able to
watch MSNBC on more
than one TV we will have
to pay. FOX is free, and
unscrambled.

large planes or whether we keep it status quo. I think
that would be very fair. The public has a right to be
represented by the people it has voted for, and the
Venice Jet Center is just out of line.


Burned up. My elder-
ly father went into a local
convenience store to buy
a pack of cigarettes while
I was outside getting gas
for the car. The clerk said
she had to see his driver
license before she could
sell him the cigarettes.
My dad gave up driving a
few years ago, so he does-
n't have a driver license
anymore. She refused to
sell him the cigarettes.
She said that their store
considers cigarettes a
controlled substance and
without him showing her
his driver license to prove

his age, it was their com-
pany policy to refuse the
sale. I could understand
if a young person tried to
buy cigarettes because
it's the store's responsibil-
ity to verify the age of the
person before selling it to
them, but to deny my 80-
year-old father cigarettes
because he couldn't veri-
fy his age is simply ri-
diculous.
Feeling green. I en-
joyed your weekend edi-
tion. I especially enjoyed
the articles about the tur-
tles, the one on "It's time
to work together" by


Monty Andrews, and the
Nice News. I guess I'm
an environmentalist, I
enjoy walking Casper-
sen Beach, where I pick
up the plastic and glass
and the kids' toys. I wish
more people did the
picking up, especially
when they leave the
beach. Please take down
the balloons that you've
put up for parties.
They're a big hazard for
our environment, espe-
cially now that it's turtle
season. We should have
more of these articles in
your paper because,
after all, I believe that's
why we have snowbird
season down here -
because of our lovely
environment.
Unpersuaded. May-
be Sue Lang and her sup-
porters can't persuade
Mayor Ed Martin to dis-
band the FAA just as
they did the Airport Ad-
visory Board in Venice.


JOHN SIMMONDS
GUEST COLUMNIST


There has been much
discussion in the public
and press concerning
whether certain Venice
City Council members
should have had their
own attorneys in the
Sunshine lawsuit, rather
then using the city attor-
ney or the attorney hired
by the city who repre-
sented approximately
nine defendants. I decid-
ed I needed my own at-
torney for the following
reasons.
The one attorney rep-
resenting nine defen-
dants had his hands full
dealing with allegations
of city council members
e-mailing each other and


the use of liaisons or go-
betweens from one city
council member to oth-
ers. There were no allega-
tions that I e-mailed any
city council members,
nor were there allega-
tions that I used liaisons.
I never did either.
In fact from the tens of
thousands of e-mails
produced by the city,
there were two, and only
two, of my e-mails that
were part of the lawsuit.
Both of these e-mails
were from me to mem-
bers of the Airport Ad-
visory Board. Unfortun-
ately, the AAB and I were
advised by the city attor-
ney back in 2005 that I
could e-mail AAB mem-
bers and vice versa. He
then told us in January
2008 (after the Sunshine
suit was filed) that we
should stop. We did. My
two e-mails were from
2007.
I think anyone would
understand my uneasi-
ness with an "out-of-
town attorney," selected
by someone who seemed
adverse to my interests,
who had never talked to


me before the first hear-
ing. The most important
thing is that the control-
ling Florida statute and
the city code permit one
to select one's own attor-
ney.
The other issues from
the lawsuit involving me
were public records I
thought were being sav-
ed by the city that I delet-
ed from my computer. I
thought the e-mails were
not retrievable. Although
I immediately apolo-
gized for this, it turns out
I was wrong the public
records were able to be
retrieved, and were pro-
vided to the plaintiff.
I am pleased that my
attorney was able to
focus on the effort to re-
trieve those public rec-
ords. He was able to do
that in large part because
he was local (not in Or-
lando) and did not have
his hands full defending
allegations regarding oth-
er defendants' e-mails to
each other, liaisons, etc.

John Simmonds is a
Venice City Council
member


study is ready. As it turns out it isn't, as
the change in city manager and focus-
ing on other important matters like the
Sunshine lawsuit put it off.
Jean Trammell, who has helped
fund almost all of the murals in town, is
heading the task force, which has been
meeting monthly after a slow start. I
spoke with James Hagler, archives
director and liaison to the task force,
who indicated the members are work-
ing through the task.
They are looking at other cities to
help shape the rules to move ahead
with more art in the city. One city they
are looking at is Lake Placid, which has
about 45 murals in a very well planned
program that brings in lots of tourists
from all over the state.

I was down in Naples and noticed it
made its annual United Way goal. For
the first time in a long time it appears
we won't. Certainly that is a sign of the
times. Unfortunately, that then means
fewer dollars for nonprofits. However,
there are a couple of chances for you to
help nonprofits and feel good about
doing it. For one, you can have lunch or
dinner at Cafe Venice on July 17 and it
will give 10 percent to Habitat for Hu-
manity.
Another way is to celebrate United
Way Day at the Crow's Nest on
Wednesday, July 22, by having lunch or
dinner, with 10 percent going to United
Way. The Crow's Nest was the first to
come up with this concept in town and
it has given tens of thousands of dollars
to the United Way as a result.

Venice falls to North Port


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


A story no one

could make up

My longtime fishing and
personal friend Dave 0., who
lives in Jupiter, called me the
other day with an amazing
fishing story.
Dave lives in a huge devel-
opment with dozens of con-
necting lakes. He was fishing
using a plastic worm with a
1/4-ounce bullet sinker and
decided to re-spool and put
6-pound test on instead of 8
pound.
It seemed to work because
his first cast was much longer
than normal. His line got
slightly tangled near the reel
and as he was untangling he
noticed his line moving. The
area is loaded with lily pads
and thick algae. At this
moment, wondering if he did
the right thing by changing
line, he set the hook in a 7-8
pound bass.
Somehow he managed to
keep the bass away from the
obstructions. After five or 10
minutes, he leaned down
and gently pulled the bass
onto the embankment. So far
so good.
The hook came out of this
beauty without hurting it. As
Dave started to stand up, he
lost his balance and fell into 3
feet of water and his head
went under the water for a
second. The bottom was very
soft and he had trouble
climbing out. To say he was
embarrassed was an under-
statement, but he looked
around and apparently no
one witnessed his little swim.
With algae in his hair,
underwear and pockets as
well as on his arms and legs,
he was a mess. As luck would
have it, as he walked the
short distance to his house
two neighbors were in his
path. They looked at him as if
he was a character from the
old movie "The Creature
from the Black Lagoon."
He knocked on his back
door so his wife could come
out and help him. More great
"luck" another neighbor
was visiting his wife and it
took them about five min-
utes to stop laughing.
Wondering why a person
would write this story? Dave
asked me to write it. Talk
about a good sport.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at

Playing just its second game
together, the Venice Senior All-
Stars made it a game against
North Port in the Senior League
District 16 Little League Tour-
nament on Tuesday in the sec-
ond game of the best-of-three
series at Butler Park in North
Port.
The 9-4 loss ends the tour-
nament for Venice after drop-
ping the first game on Monday,
17-0. North Port plays in the
Section Tournament on July 24
in Fort Myers.
"This was our second game
playing with these kids," Venice
manager Gary Puszakowski
said. "I wish it was best of five.
That is basically the JV squad
from North Port High. I have
one kid that played (Venice) JV
on my team. They have a lot
more respect for this team now.
North Port knows they are a lit-
tle different than a normal
Little League team. As far as I'm
concerned it was a win for us
today."
After getting shut out on
Monday, Venice scored two
runs in the first inning. Mike
Johnson walked and stole sec-
ond base. After a groundout,
Cody Nichols (Venice's only JV
player) reached on an error by
the shortstop. Frank Furia sin-
gled into short center field to
score Johnson. A groundout by
Dante Alteri scored the second
run.
"Much better today," Pusza-
kowski said. "They made a few
errors and we capitalized early.
My pitcher (Furia) was on
today."
Furia had four strikeouts in
4 3 innings forVenice.
North Port scored five runs
in the first inning on five hits
and four errors.
Venice added a run in the
third inning. With one out,
Johnny D'Arcangelis hit a
bloop single over first base.
After stealing second, he
moved to third on an error by

16 Little League Tournament on Monday at
Butler Park.
"Basically everything went their way
today," Puszakowski said. 'All the hits. The
seeing-eye hits. Everything fell in place for
them and we were hitting at them. They just
played well. We didn't play bad, they just
played better."
North Port, who ended with 14 hits, col-
lected six hits in the first inning for its runs
then added nine runs on five hits, two errors,
walks, passed balls, balk and a wild pitch.
North Port's Raul Quinones allowed just
three hits with six strikeouts for the victory.
Picking up hits for Venice were Cody
Nichols, Dante Alteri and Jack Zarling.
Venice's Frank Furia pitched a perfect
fourth inning with three strikeouts.
Venice's best chance to score occurred in
the fifth inning. Zarling led off with a single
and Dustin Bauman reached on an error.
After a strikeout, Mike Johnson hit a short fly
into right field, who had the ball come out of
his glove on the dive attempt. However, the
runner didn't advance and Venice got out on
a force out at third base. A walk to Nichols
loaded the bases but a flyout to left field
ended the game.
"I told them to keep our heads up,"
Puszakowski said. "We will be fine."

CIVIL WAR from Page 1B


the War Between the
States. DeNuccio, his son
and McHenry began
making plans for a trip to
the Southern battlefields,
but Paul died in 2006 be-
fore they made the trip.
"I never said 'Good-
bye' to him," the father
said. "I said 'See you
later.' He was with us on
this trip."
Day one
DeNuccio and Mc-
Henry headed north
toward Savannah, Ga.,
and the first Civil War
battlefield on their list -
Fort Pulaski. Run by the
National Park Service,
the site is famous as the
first Civil War battle in
which rifled cannons
played a prominent role.
The 32-hour losing battle
in April 1862 left a ma-
sonry fort that, to this
day, shows its battle
scars.
"The rifle cannons
devastated the fort,"
McHenry said.
From Fort Pulaski, the
men headed to Parris
Island, S.C., where De-
Nuccio endured basic
training in 1943. McHen-
ry also was there but as a
youngster at a Cub Scout
jamboree. This visit was
different.
First of many
surprises
Tom Holloway, the
brother of Venice Realtor
Norm Holloway, ar-
ranged with the com-
mandant of Parris Island
to have Gunnery Sgt.
Terrell give the men a
special tour of the facili-
ty. Then, Tom took them
to lunch in his home-
town of Beaufort, S.C.,
where, thanks to another
friend, they were intro-
duced to Patrick Dona-
hue, a reporter with the
Beaufort Gazette. A few
days later, the men and
their adventure were fea-
tured on the paper's
front page. There were
other surprises to come.
They moved on up
the coast to Charleston,
S.C., and Fort Sumter,
where, on April 12, 1861,
a year before the Pulaski
battle, the American
Civil War began. Con-
federate forces won this
battle and held on to the
fort for four years. Also
run by the National Park
Service, the fort can be
reached by a ferryboat
from Fort Moultrie or
from Patriots Point Naval
and Maritime Museum
in Mount Pleasant, four
miles from Charleston.
DeNuccio and McHenry
drove over the Cooper
River Bridge to the Patri-
ots Point ferry. Also there
is the USS Yorktown,
which honors the ship of
the same name that was
sunk at the Battle of
Midway in World War II.
McHenry said the air-


craft carrier was featured
in the film "The Fighting
Lady."
Battle of Atlanta
Skip Berthold, an old
friend, joined them for a
tour of Atlanta and Stone
Mountain. At Atlanta,
they visited the
Cyclorama, which offers
a 360-degree painting of
the Battle of Atlanta.
"The building is right
next to the zoo,"
McHenry said.
At Stone Mountain
they photographed the
mountainside relief
carving of Confederate
Gens. Stonewall Jackson,
Robert E. Lee and Jeffer-
son Davis. Now a theme
park, Stone Mountain
also is known for the
Great Locomotive
Chase, DeNuccio said.
DeNuccio and McHenry
nicknamed the motor
home the General in
honor of the Western &
Atlantic Railroad loco-
motive, which was
stolen on April 12, 1862,
by Union soldiers. Burn-
ing bridges to prevent
followers, the thieves
ended up burning train
cars and more but even-
tually ran out of fuel
short of their goal of
Chattanooga, Tenn.
DeNuccio and Mc-
Henry arrived at Mari-
etta, Ga., on the sixth
day, visiting Kennesaw
Mountain National
Battlefield Park, where
more than 5,300 soldiers
died in a two-week bat-
tle at the end of June
1864, when Gen. William
Sherman and the Union
soldiers were trying to
march on Atlanta.
From battlefield to
battlefield they went,
using their preplanned
schedule only as a guide.
"It was more impor-
tant to get the job done,"
McHenry said.
The next day the two
Civil War buffs drove up
to the battlefields at

Chattanooga and Chica-
mauga, where Union
soldiers were repelled
later in the war.
The men visited
Lookout Mountain,
Murfreesboro and Nash-
ville, Tenn., where they
saw the Hermitage, the
home of Andrew Jack-
son, before heading over
to Dover, Tenn., close to
the Kentucky border.
Their destination in
Dover was the Dover
Hotel, also known as
Surrender House. Part of
the Fort Donelson
National Park, the hotel
has been restored to
look like it did during the
war when it also served
for a time as a Union
hospital. Some 13,000
Confederate troops went
there en route to Union
prisons all over the
North.
"It (Fort Donelson)
was the first major battle
that Grant won,"
DeNuccio said.
Bloody Pond
Next stop was Shiloh
National Military Park,
which straddles
Tennessee and
Mississippi. It was one of
the bloodiest battles of
the war.
"There were so many
Confederate soldiers
killed, the pond turned
red from the blood,"
McHenry said. "The
potential for disease was
so great they buried the
bodies in mass graves,
and when the families
came to claim the bod-
ies, they were told it was
not possible. Only one
man got a separate grave
at Shiloh."
Tupelo and Brices, a
key railroad junction of
the war at Corinth, Miss.,
were the next sites visit-
ed before they headed
on south toward Vicks-
burg, Miss., as their jour-
ney was winding down.
Seeing Vicksburg was
important to the men for


it was one of the turning
point battles of the Civil
War. The visitors' bonus
was the chance to see
the USS Cairo, an iron-
clad gunboat that was
sunk in 1862 13 miles to
the north, and finally
raised in 1964 to become
a museum ship. The
restored ship is at the
Vicksburg National Mili-
tary Park.
From Vicksburg, the
men drove to Montgom-
ery, Ala., and finally to
Andersonville, Ga., their
final stop before return-
ing to Venice.
At last
"Andersonville is the
one place I always want-
ed to see," DeNuccio
said. "Providence Spring
Creek was their only
supply of drinking water
and anything washed
into that creek. The guys
prayed for fresh water
and then lightning
struck the hill."
The lightning strike
exposed a freshwater
spring that became their
only source of fresh
water.
"Providence Spring
still runs today," he said.
Andersonville prison-
ers improvised shelters
that they called "she-
bangs," as protection
from the elements.
They also needed
protection from the
guards who would taunt
them with food thrown
into a zone between the
camp fence and a line
called "the deadline,"
McHenry said. If a pris-
oner so much as put a
hand over that line, he
would be shot.
When the war ended,
the captain in charge of
the camp was tried and
executed for the many
atrocities that occurred
there, McHenry said.
"It was mostly
because he ran a pretty
loose prison," McHenry
said. "He was a scape-

goat. He wasn't even a
Confederate. Others
committed worse crimes
but they wanted to hang
someone and he was it."
After 16 days and
2,700 miles, they had
close to 1,000 photos
between them, countless
memories and they were
still friends.
"The best thing was
the surprises along the
way," DeNuccio said.
"And we got to see every-
thing we wanted to see."
At Vicksburg, the
female guide had just
completed a tour but
saw the two men stand-
ing around, knowing it
was 30 minutes until the
next tour.
"I'll give you a tour
now," DeNuccio remem-
bered her saying. "She
didn't have to but she
gave us a personal tour."
Another surprise
involved a volunteer
landscaper who gave


them a special tour at
another site.
The best
surprise of all
"We've been friends
for years but we didn't
know how much alike
we were," McHenry said.
"It was amazing how we
jelled and how we
enjoyed so many of the
same things."
For those considering
a similar trip, visit the
Web sites of the national
parks and historic sites

Venice woman, 95, writes book


BY NICK MCMURRAY
GUEST WRITER

Kathleen Dahlquist,
95, a retired kindergart-
en teacher, is the author
of "Kindergarten at
Last," a newly released
book from AuthorHouse.
She resides in Venice
where she keeps busy
with volunteer work,
dancing and writing for
the Senior Center's
newspaper.
The author has out-
lived her eldest son and
one of her grandchildren
yet still found the time
and energy to write a
book that proposes to
"let kids be kids."
Dahlquist's "Kinder-
garten at Last" is a book
about the way kinder-


garten used to be, when
the children were the
primary focus and test-
ing their abilities was
not. As a former kinder-
garten teacher,
Dahlquist wanted to
bring to life the fun chil-
dren used to have while
using their senses to
learn and discover new
things.
Not only will Dahl-
quist's book appeal to
children because of all
the colorful illustrations,
but also to teachers and
adults as well because of
the plethora of activities
to use with the children.
"Kindergarten at Last"
stresses the importance
of letting kids be kids so
they can enjoy their
childhood.


Dahlquist thinks we
are pushing our children
too fast through the edu-
cation system and forc-
ing them to grow up
before they are ready to
do so.
The writer focuses on
the importance of three
key ideas when hitting
on the importance of
kindergarten; "enthusi-
asm, creativity, and so-
cial skills." These three
concepts are what Dahl-
quist considers vital.
Dahlquist hopes edu-
cators will read and
learn from her book. She
encourages them to let
their students embrace
their youth, not rush
them through it. Kinder-
garten is meant to be
fun, and learning takes


The book is
the author's
seventh title in
the last 14 years.
She wrote her
first book when
she was 80.

place while having fun.
"The next morning, as
the children gathered in
a circle, instead of a
story, they told of all the
places Chubby might be
hiding. And some of


them told of places their
moms or dads had sug-
gested. When it was time
for their snacks, they
asked if they could leave
a broken cookie on a
dish to tempt the run-
away to come out of hid-
ing," Dahlquist wrote.
The book is the au-
thor's seventh title in the
last 14 years. She wrote
her first book when she
was 80. She has six chil-
dren, 12 grandchildren
and 15 great-grandchil-
dren.

S'When any of ""
the seven cervical
vertebrae that comprise
the neck experience
misalignment (called
"subluxation"), one might
expect the pain to be localized.
Yet, misalignment of the cervical
vertebrae may also cause organic
disorders such as headache;
migraine; dizziness; deafness; sinus
trouble; and other problems
involving the head, neck, shoulders,
and the tissues and organs contained
therein. This is due to the fact that
) nerve roots emerge through spaces in
the cervical vertebrae, providing the
nerve energy that controls blood supply
to the brain, function of the ears, and
the working of various other organs
and processes in the head and upper
body. If this nerve energy were to be
impeded, it might result in the
organic disorders listed above.
P.S. Because nerve energy controls
a wide variety of the body's
organs and systems, the
chiropractor may be able to
successfully treat problems that
involve the extremities and other
areas than simply the spine.

Teaching students to

win on and off the field


Adopt a pet


FROM NAPSA


When school bells ring, the
sound of a referee's whistle is
usually not far behind. Through-
out each school year, sports
seasons start for millions of
schoolchildren nationwide -
and so do the lessons sports
can teach.
Experts and educators
agree that physical fitness is an
important part of a child's
development and studies have
shown a direct link between
physical activity and improved
academic achievement. The
benefits of sports extend be-
yond the classroom, inspiring
self-confidence, a sense of
teamwork and camaraderie
that lasts a lifetime. And per-
haps the most important les-
son: the cultural lessons sports
can teach about breaking bar-
riers, dreaming big, setting
goals and achieving them.
"Far more than numbers on
a scoreboard, sports provides
us with the inspiration and the
tools to succeed on and off the
field and plays an important
role in American culture," says
Philip Schwalb, who fulfilled
his own dream by creating the
Sports Museum of America, a
celebration of all sports that
recently opened in New York
City.
In fact, an entire exhibit is
dedicated to legendary ath-
letes when they were children.
"Dreaming Big" features video

Williams winning a tennis

NBA star Chris Paul driving to
the basket. New York Yankee
Derek Jeter's Little League jer-
sey is showcased alongside
tennis great Billie Jean King's
grade-school report card.
"If you think about it, this is
a destination of dreams," says
Olympic Gold Medalist Jim
Craig, who has loaned the mu-
seum the American flag he
draped around himself follow-
ing the U.S. Hockey team's
"Miracle on Ice" victory in the
1980 Olympic Games. "To be a
place where a little kid can
walk in and learn about the
legacies of these athletes, the
stories of people coming from
impossible backgrounds and
overcoming the odds, how
great is that?"
"Each school year, there are
lessons to be found everywhere,
both inside and outside the
classroom. In this way, every-
body wins," says Schwalb.
For information on school
trips to the museum, visit
www.sportsmuseum.com.

Segerstrom


Eleanor Dorothy (Over-
ly) Segerstrom was born
on July 16, 1909, in Rice
Lake, Wis. She is celebrat-
ing her birthday on July
15, 2009, at Pinebrook
Care and Rehabilitation
Center, where she has liv-
ed since 2002.
"Ellie," as she is so
fondly addressed, has a
wonderful wit and sense
of humor. When asked
about her childhood and
what she thought was
most memorable, she
said that having all her
family around while she
was growing up was
something special.
Her mother was one of
five girls and her father
one of 10 siblings. She
recalls birthdays were
celebrated with all the
gang and a drinking glass
was placed in the middle
of an angel food birthday
cake. No gifts were given,
just a "donation" to the
glass placed in the mid-
dle of the cake.
"The next day, father
and I would go into town
and go to my uncle's bank
to which all my 'pinga'
would be deposited. These
deposits may have assist-


ed in paying for my
Bachelor of Science with
distinction degree many
years later. I was very
proud of my schooling,
enjoyed doing well and
graduated with a degree,"
she said.
In fact, to this day, her
friends speak of Ellie's as-
sistance when doing word
puzzles and knitting; she
would guide them through
and give them the an-
swers they needed.
Eleanor married Fred
Erick Segerstrom, a bright
man whose talents brought
them to many destina-
tions, along with their
son, Phillip, and daugh-
ter, Julie. It is amazing to
hear all the recall she has
about this period of her
life.
Ellie had been living at
BahiaVista inVenice, and
this is where she met her
dear friend, Jennie, in the
early '70s. Jennie often
visits, as does Ellie's son,
who is very supportive and
attentive to Ellie's needs.
When asked about her
longevity and how she
made it this far, her only
comment was to have a
good attitude.

We Floridians do not
climb enough stairs because
there aren't many around.
But one beautifully decorat-
ed flight of stairs on Venice
Avenue beckons you to climb
it and then rewards you with
a delightful art gallery and
gift shop at the top.
The Venice West Gallery
and Handcrafted Gifts at 221
W Venice Ave., between Fifi's
and Dick's Shoes, had an
opening gala July 3 with
many of the 27 participating
local artists in attendance.
Owner Linda Melton said
five or six more artists signed
up that night to display their
work there.
"I'm doing this because it's
something I've always want-


ed to do," Melton said.
An artist herself, she rec-
ognized a need of local artists
for a permanent place to dis-
play and sell their art and
craft works. She also is con-
sidering selling art supplies, if
there is enough interest. Call
her at 421-9408.
The eclectic display in-
cludes paintings, baskets,
jewelry, metal wall art,
stained glass, pottery, paint-
ed wood furniture and more.
Some items are unique.
Vicky Dudley weaves dec-
orative baskets from palm
blossoms and other dried
plant material. She also
makes bird houses from wine

such as wall hangings from
nails and whimsical crabs
from old shovels and horse
shoes. Handpainted furni-
ture, lazy susans and wall
hangings are the works of
Mickie Boothroyd.
Watch for future events at
the gallery, and do climb
those magic stairs. It's worth
it for your heart and your
spirit.
American as apple pie
It could have been a scene


from a patriotic film about a
small town anywhere in the
United States. It is the town
square on the Fourth of July
with children turning cart-
wheels on the grass; the gaze-
bo draped in red, white and
blue bunting; music; hot
dogs; citizens sitting in the
shade and a small girl named
Arooj Khan singing the
national anthem.
The occasion is a cam-
paign rally for India-born
Harry Walia, running for city
council in his adopted home
where he has lived and pros-
pered for almost 19 years, 20
years after becoming an
American citizen. He is par-
ticipating in American free-
dom.
This scene was played out
for real at the Gazebo on July
Fourth in Venice when Walia
held a rally beginning his
campaign for city council
seat No. 4.
"I came to America
searching for the American
dream, to the land of liber-
ties," Walia said.
Having succeeded as a
small businessman, he thinks
our town should be run as a
small business.
"It brings prosperity," he
said. "Small business is our


soul."
We won't know the end of
this story until Nov. 3, but
we should be very proud
that Venice is the setting for
it.
God bless America!

Park it

Never cease to be amazed by
the variety of Florida parks.
The key word is "park."
Florida had parks of every
variety long before the first
theme park arrived. And no, the
first one was not Walt Disney
World. Nor was it Busch
Gardens Tampa Bay nor even
Floridaland, which was just
north of Venice. Floridaland
opened on Christmas Day in
1964. It closed in 1971.
While theme parks have come
and gone or, as in the case of
WeekiWachee and Cypress
Gardens, survived with state
help, state, county and city
parks have literally gained
ground.
Many Florida visitors use state
park campgrounds such as
Oscar Scherer as their head-
quarters while vacationing.
Residents with RVs camp out
and enjoy fishing, canoeing,
kayaking and other activities in
larger parks, but anyone can
enjoy parks no matter how
limited their time, budget or the
park size.
When John Nolen planned the
city ofVenice in the 1920s, he
included smaller parks still used
by residents and visitors. He
would be pleased with Legacy
Trail and the walkway along the
Intracoastal in Venice.
In Lee County, the Great
Calusa Blueway incorporates
miles of parks connected by
paddling possibilities along
various waterways.
Near Fort Myers, Six Mile
Cypress Slough Preserve is one
of my favorites with its 1.2-mile
boardwalk through the wet-
lands. On Sanibel Island, the J.
N. "Ding" Darling National
Wildlife Refuge is yet another
place to park it.

'Peter Pan' at Broadway


Palm Dinner Theatre


Let's Go! Page 3


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
At the Broadway Palm
Dinner Theatre in Fort
Myers, Disney's Mulan Jr.
is a matinee idol on
selected afternoons from
now through August.
Accompany the lovable
misfit in a one-act stage
show set in ancient
China. The stage show
was inspired by the
character in the Disney
film, "Mulan."
In the evening, Dis-
ney's "Peter Pan" takes to
the stage in a different,
yet still magical realm.
Actually, the boy who
would not grow up
spends more time above
the stage than on it and
he flies from one adven-
ture to another, accom-
panied by Wendy, Peter,
John and Tinkerbell.
Instead of Chinese
emperors, they meet up
with Indians and pirates.
Fortunately, these are
Disney Indians and
pirates.
Celebrating its 16th
year, the Broadway Palm
has two banquet facili-
ties and two theater
spaces. The smaller one
has 90 seats and the
larger one seats 448 for
dinner and show.
Matinees include
lunch, which is available
at 11:15 a.m., with the
show scheduled for 1:15
p.m. The 8 p.m. show
follows a buffet dinner
that is available at 6 p.m.
Sunday twilight shows
begin with the buffet at
5:30 p.m. and the show
at 7 p.m. Show only
tickets are available in


limited quantity.
During the summer
shows are presented
Wednesday through
Sunday. Tcikets range
from $25-$53 per person.
The Broadway Palm
Dinner Theatre is at 1380
Colonial Blvd., Fort
Myers. Use Exit 136 from
Interstate 75. For infor-
mation and tickets, visit
www.broadwaypalm.com
or call 239-278-4422 or,
toll-free, 800-475-7256.


Directions
Take Exit 136 of 1-75.Travel

Sarasota adds vinyl to festival roster


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Now that Sarasota has
an international follow-
ing for its Film and
Wine festivals, it is time
to add a Vinyl Festival.
"It's a rare thing,"
festival organizer Matt
Orr said. "We just put it
together to support and
promote digital music."
Unlike the DJs many
people hire to play at
their weddings and
other events, these
world-class DJs are
known for their ability
to remix the music of
singers like Madonna
and others and to create
sounds used to brand


commercial products.
The genre grew popular
in the 1990s in Europe,
Orr said.
"It's the most hip
sound you can find
right now in America
music," he said. "One of
our DJs is coming from
Argentina and launch-
ing his world tour after
the festival."
For the Sarasota
festival, July 16-19, the
international flavor will
come mostly from the
more than 25 interna-
tional DJs being
brought in to Sarasota
to show what they have
mixed. They will be
joined by local artists at

ROAD TRIP
Let's Go! Page 8


Cruise to Useppa or Cabbage Key


July 15-16, 2009


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Cruises rule. In Florida,
cruises can last from as
little as three hours to a
week or more, depending
on the destination and
the time available to the
cruiser.
Among the best of the
shorter cruises is Captiva
Cruises' day trip from
Captiva Island to either
Cabbage Key or Useppa
Island. Departing at 10
a.m. from the South Seas
Island Resort on Captiva,
the boat stops first at
Cabbage Key where
passengers can disem-
bark for lunch at a
restaurant credited with
inspiring Jimmy Buffet's
song "Margaritaville." Or,
stay aboard a little longer
and disembark at Useppa
Island for lunch at the
very private Useppa
Island Club. The only
people who can eat there
are club members and
those who arrive on a
Captiva cruise.
Those who choose to
disembark at Cabbage
Key will dine on "cheese-
burgers in Paradise" and
similar fare at a restau-
rant adorned with dollar
bills as much as
$70,000 at any one time
according to our boat
captain, Randy Eric
Aldrich.
The custom began years
ago, tour guide Barry First
mate Bob Randone said.
Fishermen would tape an
extra dollar or two to the
wall or ceiling as a sort-of
prepayment for a future
visit when they might not
have the money for lunch
or a drink. Now, nearly
everyone who visits signs
a dollar bill and tapes it
to the wall or ceiling. As


the tape dries
out and the
money falls to
the ground, the
help gathers it
up not as
tips -but to
donate to
various
charities,
Litofsky said.
The one bill
that has not
been donated

to charity is the one
signed by Jimmy Buffet.
That one remains in a
place of honor on the
wall in a frame.
Cabbage Key has some
interesting homes too
but, unlike Useppa, no
beach. Mangroves edge
the island.
At Useppa, museum
docent Kaydin Wehrle
met us and gave us a brief
guided tour, dropping
half the group at the
Collier Inn for lunch.
During the summer when
the staff at the club is
slim, visitors are divided
into seating groups for
the club's restaurant. If
you eat first you will visit
the museum and/or stroll
the island afterward.
Frozen drinks are $8.95.
Iced tea is $1.95 and most
sandwiches and salads
are about $8.95. Lunch is
not included in the
cruise price.
Because of my friend-
ship with Venice area
artists John and Suzie
Seerey-Lester and writer
Dale Ludwig who penned
the IPPY Award-winning
book "Useppa," I chose to
stay aboard until we
arrived at Useppa Island.
John Seerey-Lester, who
lived on the island for
several years, illustrated
the book, capturing its


mystery and its The
beauty. "Useppa" is direc
one of many trolley
souvenirs available you
for sale in the by 9:
museum shop. colle
Now restored after can
being severely snac
pummeled in 2004
by Hurricane Charlie, the
island and the club are
charming. All one has to
do is follow the pink path
- to the club, to the pool,
to the championship
croquet course, to the
museum, to the beach, to
more charming homes, to
the bridge behind the
welcoming center and
finally, back to the dock.
Be sure to ask about the
Bay of Pigs training,
which took place at
Useppa Island in 1962.
There also is a gift shop
on the island. During the
summer months it is
open from 1-2 p.m. but
do not linger. The cruise
boat departs at 2 p.m. to
collect the Cabbage Key
passengers before
returning to the South
Seas Island Resort on
Captiva. On the return,
several dolphins swam
along with us, acting just
like the opens in the
amusement parks,
leaping for joy in unison
and hamming it up even
more when the passen-
gers yelled and whistled

to them. Randone said
there are probably 400
dolphins out there. We
were back by about 3:30
p.m., just in time to see
some manatees cavorting
in the lagoon near the
boat dock.
After trying unsuccess-
fully to take manatee
photos, most of us
reboarded the trolley for
the ride back to the
parking lot.
That left plenty of time
to explore the tiny back
streets of Captiva before
driving back to Sanibel
where I was staying.
If you make a day trip
of the cruise, do not leave
for home without an
early dinner at the The
Bubble Room, 15001
Captiva Drive. It is hard
to miss the pink building
that is covered with
bubbles. Another reason
to dine early at the
Bubble Room is the
parking situation. The
parking lot near the
entrance is, at best, a
challenge. If you have a
larger car or are parking

challenged, find a spot on
a nearby street. On the
other hand, if you have a
large car, you will be glad
you do as the portions are
huge and you will
certainly have leftovers to
carry home, If you order
one of the mile-high
desserts, you might have
a bigger problem. The
Bubble Room also is
famous for its sticky


buns. Again, "big" is the
operative term.
Filled with 30s and 40s
items, the restaurant is as
memorable for its decor
as for its food.
Be sure to make reser-
vations for the cruise
before you leave home.
The boats are often filled,
even during the summer
when you think everyone
is up north.

Wee Blew Inn is a good place for very economical dining


W ee Blew Inn is
not fancy in any
sense. It is
housed in scruffy diner-
like building on the side of
the highway, but that did
not seem to bother a large
crowd of regulars, many of
whom probably come in
for lunch from the nearby
commercial area.
The narrow room has
the open grill behind a
long counter, booths
down the window wall
and small tables in the
middle. The minimal
decoration includes
placards of funny sayings
and fishing photos and

ordered the Fish Sand-

a cup of clam chowder

was tasty, with less
thickening than usual.
Served on a hamburger

lettuce, and sweet onion,
the delicate white fish
was lightly fried and not

Susan Greenhill is the

quintessential 'Shirley Valentine'


By KIM COOL
FEATURE EDITOR
The story of "Shirley
Valentine," newly
opened at the Gom-
pertz Theatre, could be
anyone's story.
Few people have not
dreamed, at one time or
another, of what might
have been or what
could be or what would
happen if they did
something totally
different.
"Most of us die long
before we are dead,"
Shirley said.
In the Willy Russell
play, which has already
been extended to July
30 in the Gompertz,
Shirley (Susan Green-
hill) is saved from that
fate by a friend who
wins an all-expenses-
paid trip to Greece and
invites Shirley to go
with her.
Living in England and
married to a man who
expects his supper to be
served precisely when
he sets foot in the
house, Shirley is
preparing that supper
as she speaks out loud
about the possibility of
actually doing such an
outlandish thing as
leaving her husband on
his own for two weeks
while she jets off to
Greece.
"I never should have
taken the bloody
tickets," she said while
frying up potatoes and
eggs.
On the other hand,
her son Brian told her
to go and "bugger the
consequences" she
said.
And, she has already

atre through July 30.


done one outlandish
thing. She is frying up
potatoes and eggs
because she gave away
her husband's steak -
to a dog.
Shirley shares self-
doubts, her relation-
ships with husband Joe,
her children and most
of all herself. Direct-
ed by FST's Kate
Alexander, Greenhill
exhibits the full gamut
of human emotions,
spirit and grit in this
one-woman story that
is somehow the story of
so many people living
in various urban and
suburban environ-
ments.
While we never come
face-to-face with any of
the other characters,
through Greenhill's
portrayal of Shirley, we
get to know each and
every one of them quite
well. And, because of
the humor written into
the play by Russell, we
also experience every-


thing from giggles to
out-right hilarity as well
as a few bits or more
sober emotions.
Whether talking to
"wall" or "rock" or
reenacting son Brian's
acting debut as Joseph
in the annual Christ
pageant at school,
Greenhill involves the
audience. The school
play schtick is especial-
ly entertaining but the
way she flicks the
invisible sand from her
bare feet while on the
"beach" is but one
example of her lengths
to which actor and
director went to deliver
this story, which ulti-
mately become s a
"lives-changing"
experience.
The production team
includes set designer
Lauren Feldman who
created a fully function-
al kitchen as well as a
Greek island beach
setting; costume
designer Marcella
