Homeowners hope to forestall foreclosures

Foreclosures continue to
climb but homeowners are
getting more savvy about how
to handle the housing crisis.
More than 300 people in
varying stages of home owner-
ship attended a free seminar
Saturday aimed at helping
them find the right agencies,
resources and solutions to
avoid foreclosure.
Some in attendance were
still making mortgage pay-
ments but were fearful they
might lose their homes. Others
were deep into the foreclosure
process. Some were landlords;
others, tenants. And some
were exploring possible pitfalls
of buying homes in the current
market.
All came with questions and
many took notes as Judge Lee
Haworth, chief judge of the
12th Judicial Circuit, led a
panel discussion about tips to
survive the housing crisis.
Haworth, who oversees
foreclosure suits in Sarasota,
DeSoto and Manatee counties,
serves on the Florida Supreme
Court's Foreclosure Task Force,
which will present its recom-

mendations this month.
"We're beginning to see
cracks in the lenders in short
sales and modifications," Ha-
worth said. "I think we're going
to bring more good news to
you than you might expect."
Haworth told eligible home-
owners to seek free counseling
with legitimate entities such as
Legal Aid of Manasota and
Consumer Credit Counseling
Services before paying anyone
promising help with loan mod-
ification. Get an attorney, he
urged, adding that some are
accepting reduced fees based
on income. For a list, go to

City backs off backflow


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Proposed regulations by the
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection have
Venice officials standoffish
about implementing a federal
Clean Water Act mandate -
installing backflow prevention
devices. The city has put on
hold its compliance efforts in
residential neighborhoods.
When Len Bramble, utilities
and public works director,
learned about a new rule-
making drive via a lawsuit, he
had a crucial decision to make
- whether or not to mail out
12,000 letters reminding city of
Venice residents to comply by
purchasing expensive back-
flow devices for their water
systems. He didn't send the let-
ter.


Instead, Bramble and hun-
dreds of city and county gov-
ernments are waiting to see
what the DEP and Department
of Health, which administer
the program, come up with in
the form of new regulations as
a result of the lawsuit.
A judge essentially ruled the
backflow prevention rule was
too onerous, Bramble said, in
that it required all homes to
comply by purchasing back-
flow devices that cost up to
$500 with annual inspection
fees of up to $100 when many
water systems pose little or no
risk of contamination.
Bramble said he anticipates
draft regulations may still
require some form of device,
but probably a less expensive
one that costs in the neighbor-

years, Haworth said.
"It's no longer, 'If you don't
pay, you don't stay,' he said.
"Now it's, 'You can pay a little
bit less and stay.' "

Panelists included Sandra
Reims with Consumer Credit
Counseling Services; attorney
Anne Weintraub, who defends
foreclosure suits; Don Hadsell
with the Sarasota Office of
Housing and Community De-
velopment; Nina Perry with
Legal Aid of Manasota Inc.;

Dave Swenson with the Sara-
sota Association of Realtors;
and Sherry Ellis, a bankruptcy
attorney.
Perry echoed Haworth's rec-
ommendation that people
seek help.
"I'd urge people not to try
and go it alone," she said.
On the other hand, for those
who walk away without trying
to defend a suit, the foreclo-
sure process goes much faster.
"We have a rocket docket,"
Haworth said. "We process
them in bulk. We don't want
the property sitting around."
In the Venice Community
Center, 34 area agencies and
vendors set up booths and
handed out information about
how they can help. They
included veterans services, the
YMCA, the Florida Depart-
ment of Financial Services and
vocational rehabilitation ser-
vices. Freddie Mac was there.
This is the first seminar of
its kind put together by Sara-
sota County government, and
judging from responses, it
couldn't have come soon
enough.

Turner urges

millage increase

instead of

reserves bailout

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Manager Isaac
Turner introduced a balanced
budget last week in which he
plugged a projected budget
shortfall without increasing
the millage rate a council
directive. The draft 2009-10
budget relies on a draw of $2.4
million from the city reserve
account to make up for dwin-
dling property taxes.
But at Tuesday's city council
budget meeting, Turner made
his case for sustainable rev-
enue derived from a millage
increase instead of a one-time
bailout from the reserve ac-
count.
The city needs a "more bal-
anced" budget, he said, espe-
cially with an economic slump
anticipated to last into 2012.
He proposed that council
raise the millage rate to some-
where between the current
rate of 2.779 mills and the roll-
back rate of 3.2253 as a com-
promise. The rollback rate
would generate the same rev-
enue as the current fiscal year.
Arate of 3.2253 mills equates
to an additional $42 per
$100,000 of taxable property.
Relying on reserves alone
would reduce the savings
account, currently estimated
at $11 million, to $8.5 million
by the end of next September.
City policy is to save three
months of operating funds in

Sarasota Memorial Hospital: No jail on our property


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Seeking to reinforce their
commitment to building a
hospital in North Port some-
day, Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital officials told county offi-
cials to keep off their lawn.
SMH administrators are
concerned because county
staff included a 32-acre prop-
erty owned by the hospital's
governing body, the Sarasota
County Public Hospital Board,
is on a list of potential sites for
a new county jail.
The site-selection process
has been under way for about
six months. Sarasota County
commissioners hope to select
a site for a new jail in January.
The Community Partners
Work Group met last week in
Laurel to evaluate four of five
sites in central Sarasota Coun-
ty. It previously evaluated one


Central County site, three
North County sites and three
in South County, including the
SMH property.
Hospital officials have pub-
licly said their property, locat-
ed in the southeast corner of
Interstate 75 and Sumter Boul-
evard, is the likely site of a
future North Port hospital. No
one from the county contacted
hospital officials about their
interest in selling the property
before placing it on the list.
Contacting the owners of po-
tential jail sites has not been
part of the process.
If they had contacted the
hospital, county staff probably
would have heard words simi-
lar to those expressed by Deb
Taylor, SMH director of busi-
ness development, in e-mails
to Wayne Applebee, county
criminal justice policy coordi-
nator, on Thursday.
"Thank goodness you got


the message," Taylor wrote Ap-
plebee. "We have been bomb-
ed with (North Port) residents
calling thinking we have
changed our mind about a fu-
ture hospital. Please do inform
the work group that we, Sara-
sota Memorial Health Care
System, have no intention of
selling the Sumter Road parcel,
since that's where we plan to
build a future hospital, and we
will ask officials to remove the
property from consideration."
Committed
Applebee's response was
sympathetic.
"I am sorry this has caused
havoc for you all," he wrote,
adding that given a written
request the work group
would vote on removing the
hospital from the list of 11 pro-
posed jail sites.
"Sites are placed on the list
of consideration (by county


staff) and eliminated by the
Criminal Justice Commission's
work group, not by staff,"
Applebee said.
"They placed it on the con-
sideration list because it was
government property, which
met our initial criteria."
North Port Police Chief Ter-
ry Lewis, a task force member,
said he ranked the I-75/
Sumter site "very low" because
"it's the gateway to the city of
North Port."
Meanwhile, North Port resi-
dents upset that the Sumter
site was even being considered
for a jail also contacted Sam
George, North Port Com-
munity Health Action Team
member, to express disap-
pointment at their belief that
the hospital might sell the
Sumter property.
George said he has had dis-
cussions with Gwen Mac-
Kenzie, chief executive officer


of SMH, recently, "and she
assured me the hospital prop-
erty was not for sale." George
remains confident that the
hospital's view of the property
has not changed.
"The relationship that the
CHAT has with Gwen and the
SMH staff is impeccable,"
George said. "They have always
been frank and honest with us
and I would never doubt their
commitment to this communi-
ty. I hope everyone knows that
SMH has made a serious com-
mitment to health care in North
Port and they are keeping their
commitment."
SMH will open a 25,000-
square-foot, 24-hour emer-
gency room off Toledo Blade
Boulevard on Sept. 1. Mean-
while, no date has been set for
the next work group meeting.

Budget group ponders cuts, usage fees


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

A combination of cuts,
usage fees, better-de-
fined priorities and in-
creased oversight are
among the elements
members of the Citizens
Budget Task Force work-
ed into the draft recom-
mendation for Sarasota
County commissioners.
The task force, which
includes former state
senator Lisa Carlton and
is chaired by Robert L.
Anderson, meets again
Aug. 21 to continue its
discussion and final
report preparation on
the county's proposed
$981 million budget for
2009-10. The task force is
expected to make its pre-
sentation to commis-
sioners Sept. 8.
With five meetings
dealing with county ser-
vices under their belt,
eight of the 10 task force
members labored four
and a half hours Thurs-
day night to consolidate
individual recommenda-
tions. Jokes about creat-
ing a camel by commit-
tee belied the serious
manner in which the
members proffered their
recommendations, fines-


sed wording or pondered
the successful outcome
of a politically charged
suggestion.
Calling it the prover-
bial "elephant in the
room," Mary Anne Ser-
vian pushed her recom-
mendation that a non-
resident user fee policy
be applied to water ac-
cess and parking, includ-
ing the county's tourist-
enticing beaches. Task
force members agreed to
include that as one of 20
tentative recommenda-
tions.
More cuts urged
The user fee was
among six revenue-pro-
ducing proposals, in-
cluding a review of a
false-alarm billing pro-
gram, a fraud-control
system for invalid home-
stead exemptions, in-
creased in-sourcing of
services and marketing
opportunities (such as
product signs on bill-
boards inside parking ga-
rages). Members also
urged enforcement of
sewer hookup laws.
The task force contin-
ued to stress that in FY
2009-10, cuts in levels of
services, personnel and
noncritical programs be


made. Guiding these cuts
would be priorities that
had been updated and
more clearly stated by
the county commission.
However, it tentatively
is urging an increase in
funding for nonprofit
health and human ser-
vice providers. In its
draft, the task force call-
ed increased funding "a
prudent investment ... in
these times of economic
stress."
Commissioners also
are urged to create a
more formalized, three-
year budget planning
process, initially suggest-
ed by Carlton. Another
recommendation urges
the commissioners to
consider an annual inde-
pendent, third-party re-
view by experts in the
area of investment policy
and performance.
County commission-
ers are scheduled to hold
a second series of budget
workshops Sept. 3-4 on
the proposed budget.
Two public budget hear-
ings are scheduled for
Sept. 14 in South County
and Sept. 28 in North
County. Final adoption is
expected Sept. 28.

Veterans cemetery will expand


FROM THE BRADENTON HERALD

U.S. Senator Mel Martinez, R-Fla.,
announced the Department of Veter-
ans Affairs has awarded a construction
contract for the expansion of Sarasota
National Cemetery.
The $17,482,519 contract was
awarded to a Florida firm to construct
the 50-acre addition. Construction is
scheduled to begin in early 2011.
The 295-acre cemetery opened in
January off State Road 72, and by
Memorial Day had already conducted
more than 700 funerals.
"Florida is the home to nearly 6 mil-
lion veterans and each has played a
proud part in America's military tradi-
tion," Martinez said in a press release.
"This cemetery will serve nearly
398,700 veterans and family members


located in eight of the surrounding
counties, as well as ensure that the fam-
ilies of our nation's veterans will have a
better opportunity to be closer to their
loved ones who have passed."
Blue Cord Construction Inc., a ser-
vice-disabled, veteran-owned small
business firm in the Orlando area, will
develop the area to include about
11,500 crypt grave sites, 6,000 crema-
tion sites, an administration building
with an electronic grave-site locator,
public restrooms, a columbarium for
cremated remains, maintenance com-
plex, two committal service shelters, a
flag/assembly area, memorial wall and
an avenue of flags.
The Sarasota National Cemetery is the
seventh national cemetery in Florida.

GAS from Page 1 A


May 11, Mid-State made five deliv-
eries to EZ Stop. Under the agree-
ment, the gas remains the proper-
ty of Mid-State until the store own-
ers pay for it.
For convenience, however,
Mid-State allowed EZ Stop to pay
for the gas by electronic funds
transfer, which normally was is-
sued about three days after deliv-
ery. Mid-State also installed a cred-
it card system at the location that
allowed customers to pay for their
gas at the pump or at the cash reg-
ister with credit cards. Those cred-
it card payments were made
directly to Citgo and credited
against EZ Stop's account.
According to the report, on May
2, 7, 9 10 and 12, Mid-State had


delivered more than 40,100 gallons
of gas. The Zaids then disconnect-
ed the credit card machine and
began selling gas for cash only at a
price at least 30 cents less than the
local market price and less than
what EZ Stop was obligated to pay
Mid-State for the gas.
The Zaids even requested extra
deliveries of gas on May 9-10,
claiming they were selling more
gas because a neighboring station
wasn't selling fuel because of prob-
lems with its tanks.
The report states that an inves-
tigation showed there was no
problem with the neighboring sta-
tion's tanks, and EZ Stop was sell-
ing the gas as fast as it could at a
discounted price without any


intention of paying Mid-State.
EZ Stop sold nearly $70,000
worth of gas for cash, cleaned out
the convenience store stock and
their personal belongings and
continued to refuse to pay for the
gas.
In addition, the report states
that between May 11-13 the cou-
ple activated $3,250 in Citgo gift
cards provided to them by Mid-
State and failed to pay for the
cards.
The Zaids were arrested and
charged with second-degree felony
grand theft ($20,000-$100,000).
They were released on $10,000
bond each.

URGES from Page 1A


the account about $7 million in
Venice's case.
But the Sunshine lawsuit litiga-
tion isn't factored into the budget.
Tapping the reserve account to pay
the plaintiff's attorney fee award
could immediately bring the city's
rainy-day account below what is
considered a safe level.

Balance
Adopting the higher rollback
millage rate of 3.225, said Finance
Director Jeff Snyder, might mean
the city needs to take only $1.9
million from its reserve account
instead of $2.4 million.
Under Turner's scenario, the
average property owner with a
home valued at $350,000 would
pay roughly $150 in additional
taxes next year.
"We are requesting council con-
sider some adjustment for the
millage rate," Turner said.
Maintaining the current mill
rate "has effectively cut taxes (rev-
enue) by $1.3 million. We are ask-
ing for a tax cut of something less
than $1.3 million. We want to keep
our fund balance as positive as we
can so we can live off that for a
while."


Options
Mayor Ed Martin and Vice
Mayor Sue Lang took decidedly
different views on the role the
reserve should play. Martin said it's
a plan worth considering.
"If we dealt with a millage
increase but not a tax (revenue)
increase, we would have the effect
of ameliorating reserves ... that's
the way I look at this," Martin said.
Lang wants to take the entire
$2.4 million from the reserve and
incur no tax increase this year.
"Obviously we have an econo-
my that is pretty cyclical," Lang
said. "Our reserve fund quirked up
during the good times. Stashing it
away for a recession that's what
it's for. I don't see us, at this time,
being in any jeopardy of eroding
the $7 million" safe reserve fund
level.
"I think it's premature (to raise
the millage rate). We need to assess
that situation next year.
"There is still a lot of room (to
cut) in this budget still unfilled
positions budgeted," Lang said.

Roles
Council also discussed utility
rates, a surprising decrease in


council's liability insurance rates
despite the Sunshine lawsuit and
other budget anomalies.
When it came to discussing the
merits of saving or cutting individ-
ual positions, like whether to save
one of two code enforcement offi-
cer positions, Martin quashed the
discussion.
"I don't think we want to micro-
manage this," he said. "Let the city
manager come to us. I just don't
think we want to go there. He is the
CEO and we are the board."
City officials propose cutting 14
positions in the $59.36 million
budget. Overall, the city budget
will decrease from $67.1 million to
$59.3 million.
The next budget workshop is
scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 11,
from 9 a.m. to noon. The work-
shop is open to the public but
would not typically allow for pub-
lic participation.
Budget public hearings will
offer citizens the opportunity to
comment on Tuesday, Sept. 8, and
Tuesday, Sept. 22, both at 5:01 p.m.
All meetings take place in council
chambers at city hall, 401 W
Venice Ave.

CITY from Page 1 A

hood of $100.
Sarasota County adopt-
ed a policy that exempted
low-risk homes, which
DOH approved, then later
admitted was a mistake,
according to Bramble.
When city officials
inquired about adopting
the county policy, they
were told no, he said.

Clarification
At a city council budget
workshop on Tuesday,
Don O'Connell, represent-
ing the Venice Landlords
Association, called the
city's backflow prevention
program discriminatory
and its $2 "water demand"
charge unfair.
"It's an inequitable
charge," O'Connell said.
"It's not a water demand
charge; it's an inspection
(charge)."
"Why are you imposing
this tremendous cost" on
businesses and apartment
complexes "while giving
single-family units a
break?" O'Connell asked.
He said the county
backed off its program,
and that's what the city
should do.
Marc Swartz, an engi-
neer with the Sarasota
County environmental
health division, said that's

news to him.
"Let me clarify," he
said. "Where things get a
little sticky is the state
requires each water utili-
ty supplier to have a pro-
gram and each utility is
responsible for their own
program."
The county policy,
Swartz said, only requires
residential units to com-
ply if the property is a
"known hazard."
"Hazards are those ulti-
mate sources of water
where the pressure in un-
known, like using pond
water for an irrigation sys-
tem that is connected to a
home water system, or sys-
tems connected to re-
claimed water or wells ...
where we really don't know
the quality of that water...
. Then the requirement to
have have a backflow pre-
venter kicks in."
"Commercial accounts
concern us most," Swartz
said. "One day a retail
property may be a dog
grooming salon, the next
day a real estate office. It's
difficult to keep track of
changing businesses. Re-
quiring a backflow pre-
venter covers all the bas-
es and reduces the risk of
back-siphonage and
back-pressure."

Voigt retiring from



Bank of Venice


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

It will be the end of a short-lived era
for the Bank of Venice when its name
disappears and founding Chair Dave
Voigt retires in the coming weeks.
The bank's three offices, with head-
quarters at 240 S. Nokomis Ave., will
become branch offices of TIB of Naples.
No one knows exactly when the
name Bank of Venice will disappear.
Regulatory approval is expected before
the end of September, when TIB in-
tends to convert all three offices.
"We literally take the charter off the
wall and send it back to the state," said
Voigt.
With no board of directors, there will
be no chair. Voigt said he is not a branch
manager, so at age 68 he is leaving to do
other things.
Back in 1963, Voigt graduated from
college on June 4, got married on June 8
and came to Florida on June 8. His wife,
Judy, joined Sarasota County as a
school teacher and he started work at
Sarasota Bank and Trust in downtown
Sarasota, one of only four banks in the
city. Three were downtown and one on
the edge of town at Southgate, beyond


which were only orange groves.
Eight years later he came to Venice,
accepting a position with Venice-
Nokomis Bank; he was president from
1974 to 1986. It is now the Bank of
America near the post office.
Voigt began developing a new bank
in 1986 and a year later opened Guar-
anty Bank and Trust, on East Venice
Avenue, staying until 1999. It's now
Fifth Third Bank.
He opened the Bank of Venice in
January 2003; four years later it was
acquired by TIB of Naples.
"Now we are going to become a
branch, and down the road there will
be economies," said Voigt. "They took
over the deposits of Riverside Bank re-
cently, and it seems a bit silly to keep
two banks competing, so it makes
sense to make changes."
He has a two-year noncompete
agreement; he will be 70 when it runs
out. In the banking environment of
today, he knows it is very difficult to
start a bank. The FDIC is cautious
about chartering new banks, particu-
larly in Florida.
"If I do anything, we will see, but I
have certainly no plans to start another
bank," he said.

Retiring Bank of Venice Chair David Voigt, center front, is surrounded by colleagues Mack
Wilcox, left, president and CEO, Sharon Thomas, Alise Doudakian, Ann Bertch, Cathy
Pierce, Tammy Oakes, Norm Benson and Dawn Rice.


Voigt said he never fathomed the
real estate drop-off would be so deep
and so widespread. Also, the industry is
suffering from all the exotic products
that trickled down from the big cities
and institutions.
He said property values bottoming
out will enable the economy to recover,
but guesses it likely will be 18-24
months.
He attributes his banks' success to
the staff and the way they do business,
not the chair, who only sees 1 to 2 per-
cent of the customers.


"I have been so fortunate, training
under the best bankers in Florida," he
said, "I had a college degree, but began
my career as a teller, then a clerk in
loans; that's how you learn."
Following the changeover to TIB,
MackWilcox, CEO and president will be
the market manager, with most of the
staff staying on. Voigt said he does not
know what further actions TIB will take
when the Bank of Venice signs come
down.

Toale joins
Caldwell board
Kathleen Toale has joined
the board of directors of Cald-
well Trust Company, accord-
ing to R.G. "Kelly" Caldwell Jr.,
CEO and president.
The Sarasota native and
her husband, David V Toale,
recently retired as the second
generation of management of


extensions to increase height.
A different Venetian stucco fin-
ish will highlight anchor ten-
ants Goodwill and Dollar Gen-
eral.
The parking lot will be land-
scaped by creating islands
along the building to break up
the long facade. The 8-feet-
long islands will introduce
greenery by adding palm trees,
said Beebe.
The objective is to reduce
the flatness of the existing
building, while new lighted
columns will improve visibility
for shoppers.
Ryan Treble, Lindsay Group
manager, said that after Dollar
General opens its 11,000-
square-foot store only a couple
of units will remain unoccu-
pied.

New sports pub opens on bypass


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Ten widescreen TVs, pool ta-
bles, darts, online Texas Hold-
'em, Buzztime trivia, game
nights, free live music and
karaoke are the promise of
Laraine Campbell, who has
opened a new sports pub in
Bird Bay Plaza.
The Winner's Circle Pub,
539 North U.S. 41 Bypass is
next to Domino's Pizza.
Smoking is permitted and
there are happy hours, light
appetizers, drink specials and
draft beers. Campbell is intro-
ducing a kitchen soon to en-
hance the food service.
From Stamford, Conn.,
Campbell has been in Venice
for 24 years working with the
Mobil service station, Dairy
Queen and Albertsons. She
supports the Children's Mira-
cle Network and the American
Legion Post 312.
The pub is open 7 a.m.-
midnight weekdays and later
on weekends. Call 488-8320.
Northern expansion
Expanding from Port Char-
lotte to Venice is Discount
Warehouse Mattress Outlet,
4153 South Tamiami Trail in
Venice Village Shoppes at Jaca-
randa Boulevard.


Owners Steve Marks and
Rick Risucci are offering a full
line of Therapedic Interna-
tional mattresses made in
Florida, bedroom furniture,
HD-LCD TVs, home acces-
sories, sheets and pillows.
Marks was employed in in-
dustrial, financial and retail
management in Milford, Mich.,
until moving to Port Charlotte
in the mid '80s. Earlier this year
with his partner he opened
Discount Warehouse, an
18,000-square-foot retail outlet
in Port Charlotte offering a
large selection of small home
appliances, electronics, TVs,
bedding and household goods.
He has 10 employees and
offers delivery throughout
Charlotte and Sarasota coun-
ties. Venice store hours are 10
a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through
Saturday, and Sunday after-
noons. Call 445-5353.
Landlords gearing up
Commercial tenants con-
tinue to be in the driver's seat,
according to George Huhn,
Coldwell Banker commercial
Realtor, who has specialized
locally in retail leasing and
sales for the past 15 years.
Landlords are readying to
place tenants looking to rent
before the upcoming tourist
season.
Many of my recent contacts
are those affected by the reces-
sion who were employed local-
ly. They view this as a golden
opportunity to start their own
business, with a combination
of low rents and attractive
locations that has never been
better. As most start-ups strug-
gle financially in their first and
second years, the common
perception is it will be benefi-


Latest Creation


cial to be in place ready to han-
dle increased activity as the
economy picks up.
Restaurant suppliers are
reporting increased client con-
tact, with contracts for both
start-ups and expansions.
Those currently in business
see the bargain rents as the
deciding factor to expand. The
difference between a 4-7 per-
cent-plus rent factor is huge
and may be the difference
between profit and loss in fea-
sibility studies.
Permits obtained
Good news for Enrico
Mangiafico, who is moving a
short distance to expand his
small Sicilian cafe, 229 W Mi-
ami Ave., into the spacious
Ristorante Mangiafico. Per-
mits have been obtained and
the building will continue.
With his wife, Josie Mang-
iafico, he plans to move from
the 1,000-square-foot cafe
seating only 25 to the 3,500-
square-foot new location,
which will have a 47-seat din-
ing room with modern kitch-
en.
Targeted opening for the
new restaurant is October,
when he will employ addition-
al servers, busboys and kitchen
crew for the new season. His
current restaurant, Mangiafico
Cafe, is open 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
Monday through Saturday.

OUR VIEW



Time to rally 'round the home team


After what? three years,
Sarasota County has a deal to
keep a Major League Baseball
team in Sarasota for the next three
decades.
No doubt, local residents have
become exhausted by this long-run-
ning spring training saga. It began all
those years ago with the Cincinnati
Reds, who tried to work out a deal to
stay here and finally threw up their
hands and fled west to Arizona. Then
came the Boston Red Sox, who flirted
with Sarasota and finally finessed a
fancy new stadium in Fort Myers.
And then the Orioles. On, off, on,
off, on, off, on again. This time, appar-
ently for good.
We have had our doubts about the
efforts to keep a Major League team
in the county, especially, but not only,
because of the price tag. But now that
a deal is done, we'll accentuate the


positive and offer 10 reasons for locals
to start hitching themselves to the
Orioles bandwagon.
Cost. The Orioles' request at one
point rose well above $40 million. The
final price is $31.2 million for the
ground-up rebuilding of Ed Smith
Stadium. The money will not come
from property taxes, but one-half of 1
percent of the Tourist Development
Tax, paid by visitors. A state grant of
$7.2 million also will be used.
History. Major League spring
training baseball first began in Sara-
sota in 1924, and now will continue.
Longevity. The Orioles will be
here for 30 years. It's commitment.
Long-term is always better.
Cal. The Orioles and Cal Ripken
Baseball will build a youth academy
at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota. That
would bring young players, and their
families, to the area year-round. Plus,


Cal is gold. What other ex-Major
Leaguer would you want to be associ-
ated with?
Ads. The deal has always included
a healthy amount of "free" advertising
on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network,
which shows Orioles and Washington
Nationals games, as well as Balti-
more-Washington area college sports.
The channel has an extensive reach.
There are other promotional features
that will help draw tourists and atten-
tion to the area. With a paper value of
$1 million a year, this alone could off-
set building costs.
Rivalry. Charlotte has the Rays;
Sarasota the Orioles. It's an American
League East match-up throughout
the spring. Side bets on the cross-
county rivalry anyone? Plus, it gives
every right-thinking fan another rea-
son to boo the Yankees.
The Bird. Great mascot. Terrific


logo. Cool cap.
Tradition. The Orioles are a once-
proud franchise; they can be again.
They have won three World Series
championships, but the last came in
1983. Sure, the team has been in the
dumps lately, but the laws of proba-
bility alone say they will improve. We
can ride the wave up.
Cal, etc. A Hall of Fame that in-
cludes Frank and Brooks Robinson,
Earl Weaver, Jim Palmer and Eddie
Murray, not to mention the stellar
Elrod Hendricks. Boog Powell is worth
it for his name alone.
Fort who? Lee County beat Sara-
sota on the Sox, then snickered at lo-
cal negotiators during the long tussle
over the Orioles. They lose this one,
and now will be stuck with a Sox-less
stadium in downtown Fort Myers. No
taunting in baseball? OK, so we'll just
smile and accept our trophy humbly.


Indians pride


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Over the years, the Venice
community has had a very
close connection with its
schools. One facet of that rela-
tionship has been a love affair
with sports, particularly high
school sports.
In June, the Gondolier Sun
awards the "Big Chief" trophy
to the best of the high school's
sports teams. It is a 4-foot-high
trophy on display all year at
Bogey's. Every year it is difficult
to choose because we have so
many extremely talented
teams. This year it was harder
than normal, so we picked two
teams as No. 1 the boys bas-
ketball team and the girls soft-
ball team.
Even at that we left out
many other very talented
teams, like the boys golf team
that went to state, the volley-
ball team that went to the final
eight in the state and the foot-
ball team that was undefeated
in the regular season.
Once again we have reason
to be proud. On Friday, Aug.
28, the football team is going
to be televised on ESPN (likely
ESPN-U, which is not available
on Comcast but is on Verizon
and Direct TV I believe). What
an honor for our team to be
nationally recognized.
They will be playing in
Chesapeake, Va., at a school
that is ranked high in the
country. Both teams showcase
very talented quarterbacks.
Trey Burton, the Indians'
quarterback, is slated to go to
the University of Florida on full
scholarship, and the other
team's quarterback is consid-
ered one of the best, if not the
best, in the country.
Paragon, the promoter, is
providing Venice's coaching
staff and team transportation
to the game and housing them
in Chesapeake. Everyone else
must find their own way, so
there are many fundraisers
going on to help support this
event to ensure all costs are
covered.
The cheerleaders have had
many fundraisers. One fund-
raiser they are doing is a "core-
athon" having people pledge
money for supporters to do ex-
ercises, a unique way to raise
money.
Another one coming up is at
Dairy Queen, which is giving a
portion of all proceeds from
food sales on Wednesday, Aug.
12, from 4 to 7 p.m. (If you eat
a lot of ice cream and burgers
you may want to do the work-


out afterward.) If you just want
to donate call, KathyWalker at
488-2697.
This Saturday, Aug. 8, foot-
ball coach, John Peacock will
be hosting a fundraiser at
Outback at noon. John will be
talking about the Virginia
game and the season ahead.
Mike Summerall and his
team at Outback have been
huge supporters of the Venice
community. The cost is $20.
There are only a few tickets
left. Call Jeanette Bowdell at
441-5865.
Season tickets for football
are on sale at the Boone Law
Firm, which has handled sales
for years. Do not miss out on
the exciting season ahead -
not just football, but volleyball
and all the other sports.

By's Crack: The president
says his health-care plan is
based on the same princi-
ples as medicine itself. So, I
guess it'll be outrageously
expensive, you'll wait forev-
er for it and it'll come with
instructions unreadable by
anybody by pharmacists.

Another fundraiser is to-
morrow, Thursday the 6th,
benefiting the Lord-Higel
House, the historic house lo-
cated across from the back of
city hall that dates back to the
end of the 19th century. It will
get 10 percent of all proceeds

Cash for Clunkers has had
an impact on local dealers,
especially ones with less-
expensive cars. I assume that if
you have a true clunker, you
can't usually afford a big car.
Anyway, this has in fact cre-
ated some stimulus and will
decrease the use of gasoline.
The challenge the dealers have
had from day to day has been
in knowing what in the heck is
going on with the program.

It was sad to see Wolf Cam-
era close at the corner of U.S.
41 and East Venice Avenue
after so many years as a part of
the community. But this may a
good time for the county to
buy that strip center for the
future widening of 41.
My newest suggestion for
this massive project of widen-
ing the bypass is to do it in real
small bites. Chamber CEO
John Ryan has had a similar
thought. FDOT wants things in
big projects, but since the
money can't be found in mam-
moth pieces, we need to
change our thinking to small
pieces.
I would start with the right-
hand turn lane onto East Ven-
ice Avenue from U.S. 41 where
that center is. At the same time

Can't wait to re-elect them


Recall? No, re-elect. Should we support a recall? My reply is
absolutely not. Rather than recalling the best council members
we've had in years, we must continue to support our mayor and
council in carrying out our wishes. We shouldn't be fooled by
those who are focused on personal property at the expense of our
own peace and quiet in our own homes. The money development
interests in this city continue to reject the landslide victory that
our city council had back in 2007. The target is on the mayor and
our council members, who are valiantly pursuing the policies that
the majority of our residents have told them we want. So, we def-
initely want to re-elect them again to get our policies carried out.


Nailed it. I just want to say
hooray for Mary Kay Ruppel's
column, "The man who came
to dinner." She really hit the
nail on the head. Keep up the
good work, Mary Kay.
Hang up. I'm calling to say I
don't believe drivers should be
using cell phones while dri-
ving, I've seen too many peo-
ple doing this that can cause
severe accidents. It's getting
out of hand. I do believe that
Florida should ban the use of
cell phones while driving.
Self-serving. According to
the recent Gondolier Sun pa-
per, the leader of the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce
and several of its members
from the business community
put on quite a presentation
criticizing the city council's
new proposed comprehensive
plan. I think we should all real-
ize that it's the chamber lead-
er's job to promote its mem-
bers' interests and we should
also realize that his presenta-
tion and those of its members
who spoke were self-serving.
Therefore, they are not speak-
ing for the majority of the citi-
zens who elected the latest
council for slow growth, low
building-height and keeping
the small-town atmosphere.
The sprawl that Mr. Ryan men-
tioned has already occurred,
caused by the good old boys of
the past and the developers.
Also, council is not responsible
for our present economic prob-
lems, as the business commu-
nity seems to indicate. Haven't
they heard the nation is in a
recession? Our city was origi-


Let 'em

nally established as a retire-
ment community, and I think
it's what the majority want and
not a tourist mecca to benefit
the business community.
Percussion capped. A sun-
set drum circle celebration has
been held on Nokomis Beach
every Saturday night for more
than 10 years. It is a family-ori-
ented event enjoyed by the
locals and visitors alike, and it's
free of charge something
unheard of in Sarasota County.
While the county does not pro-
mote, support or even encour-
age the event, it is the second-
largest weekly gathering at any
county park or beach. Only the
Sunday night drum circle on
Siesta Key Beach attracts larger
crowds. So what do the knuck-
leheads at the county do? They
decide to hold something
called a "Sip and Stroll" the


third Saturday night of each
month at... guess where?Yes, at
the already crowded Nokomis
Beach. Never mind the county
has 14 fine public beaches, 13 of
which are not crowded on
Saturday nights, plus Nokomis
Beach is only crowded on
Saturday nights. This is yet
another example of poor plan-
ning on behalf of the county.
Perhaps county personnel are
trying to bring attention to the
new, expensive and seldom
used Nokomis Beach pavilion
or they are simply taking advan-
tage of the drum circle crowd.
But common sense would say,
have the event at one of the
other 13 beaches or have the
event on another night of the
week. But who has ever accused
the county of showing common
sense?
Tax relief. I certainly hope
that Council Member John
Moore and Mayor Ed Martin
have budgeted to pay the tax on
their enormous bonus from the
taxpayers ofVenice, which went
to pay their personal legal bills.
After all, that's income. Anytime
an employer picks up a bill for
an employee, whether it's a
country club membership or a
company car or in this case, per-
sonal attorneys' fees, that's in-
come, subject to income tax. It
should give the taxpayers of
Venice at least some comfort to
know that in a round-about way
we ought to get a little bit of that
money back.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Editor:
I worked 25 years, contributed to my health insurance and
retirement and paid taxes and Social Security. I now receive a
partial retirement, still contribute to health insurance and I'm
taxed on my Social Security with no cost-of-living adjustment for
the next two years.
Our Washington demigods work part-time, receive free med-
ical coverage and full-salary retirement benefits for life, never
pay into Social Security and only pay taxes when caught not pay-
ing them. They also gave themselves a raise this year. They tell us
we are all going to have to make sacrifices, but I guess they are
not included in the "we."
The present government is destroying capitalism and spend-
ing us into Neverland. By the way, speaking of Neverland, the
news media and our president have spent plenty of time honor-
ing Michael Jackson but I hear little mention of our brave soldiers
who have given their lives in the past few weeks.

Strange and

unusual catches
Apparently it is true. A few
weeks ago, several cabrera
snapper were caught off the
end of the Venice Jetty.
Cabreras are snappers
with a full set of teeth and are
usually way offshore. Most of
the time strange inshore
catches occur during periods
of tropical storms or hurri-
canes, but not this time.
Several years ago oversize
redfish were in the surf as a
storm was passing offshore.
My tackle was too light and
they were breaking me off.
Another time, I saw several
offshore fish in the surf and
to this day I have no idea
what they were. My guess is
some offshore fish get disori-
ented and swim toward the
shore.
One year, I went out to the
jetty as a storm was brewing
offshore. The water was so
rough you could only get out
to the beginning of the jetty.
This time it was bluefish in
abundance. I didn't have my
rod and reel with me and the
few people fishing were
pulling them in one after
another.
I've heard the same type of
stories up and down the West
Coast. I have also seen alliga-
tors swimming in the Gulf
during a storm; they must
come from the small streams
that flow into the Gulf.
Strange occurrences during
tropical storms and hurri-
canes.

Venice's opener bumped to ESPNU


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High's national expo-
sure for its varsity football team
just got less.
The Indians' season-opener on
Aug. 28 against Oscar Smith High
in Chesapeake, Va., originally
scheduled for ESPN has been
moved to ESPNU.
ESPNU, which was launched
in 2005, has a smaller viewership
than ESPN, and is not carried by
every local cable company.
Comcast does not carry ESPNU.
The only way to watch the 7


p.m. game on television is
through Verizon FIOS (Channel
63), DirecTV (609) or Dish
Network (148).
The game will feature two of
the top quarterbacks in the
nation with Venice's Trey Burton,
a University of Florida commit,
and Oscar Smith's record-setting
signal caller, Phillip Sims, who has
committed to Alabama.
Oscar Smith, which is the
defending Division 6 state cham-
pion, is ranked No. 8 in the ESPN
RISE FAB 50.
Venice is ranked No. 25 in state
by Rivals.com in a preseason poll.


Venice High head coach John
Peacock, who saw the change on
message boards on the Internet,
said the move doesn't really mat-
ter to him.
"We are going to play a quali-
ty opponent," Peacock said.
"Whatever channel we are going
to be on it will be in front of mil-
lions of people."
Practice for the upcoming sea-
son begins on Aug. 10 with two-a-
day sessions. The first practice is
set for 7-10 a.m. with the second
practice from 6 p.m. to dusk.

Walsh of the Gulf Coast Business Review.
In times of economic uncertainty, small businesses look to find ways to cut
costs and become more innovative with their products and services. Those
who are successful, typically, are the ones that have strengthened their
relationships with their clients, analyzed their market, and have made their
staff more efficient. That was the message received by the audience at the
Chamber's Economic Issues Forum held at the Holiday House on July 30th.
Moderated by State Senator Nancy Detert with the topic "Positioning Your
Business for the Turnaround" was presented by panelists: Joseph Bracle,
President/CEO -CSI Networks, Matt Walsh, Editor & Publisher- Gulf Coast
Business Review, Lars Hafner, President State College of Florida, Phyllis
Stewart, Vice President LeaderChip, Inc., and Pat Neal, President Neal

"Outback's management and staff are very involved with our
community. They have prepared free dinners and luncheons for
Loveland Center, Children First, Rotary Futures and Kiwanis Club
and many others to assist in their special scholarship and other
outreach charitable funding campaigns. Outback's management
and employees give of their time to serve the donated meals and gift
bags to enrich the Venice community's welfare. They particularly
enjoy working with the elementary schools and special athletic
teams they serve. In closing, Outback is more than just a fine
quality restaurant that we enjoy, it's a valuable community asset
that continues its generous giving to our schools and organizations."

South Venice Beach transport is a ferry tale


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER


Every day but Wednesday,
the South Venice Beach ferry
pulls away from a dock at 4800
Lemon Bay Drive, arriving sev-
en minutes later at another
dock on Manasota Key.
Up to 18 passengers get off,
stepping onto a remote section
of Manasota Beach more than
a mile from the nearest park-
ing lot.
This happens every half
hour from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Mondays and Tuesdays and
9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays
through Sundays.
Residents of the SouthVenice
subdivision 20,000 strong -
are very familiar with the ferry
service, according to Ellen Hill-


strom, chair of the SouthVenice
Beach Endowment Trust.
Although anyone can buy a
pass on the ferry, it's mostly
residents of the South Venice
subdivision who use it, Hill-
strom said.
Established in 1965 through
an endowment trust, the ferry
property includes 1,300 feet of
Gulf frontage on Manasota Key
plus a mainland ferry landing
with 5 acres of property.
"We don't market it, but be-
ing a nonprofit, we've allowed
the public to buy passes,"
Hillstrom said.
Secret
On a recent Saturday morn-
ing, ferry Capt. Ralph Brown
nosed the ferry into the dock
landing on Manasota Key.


Carrying shocking-pink and
neon-yellow floats, children
and parents rushed off the
ferry onto the beach.
"It's one of the best-hidden
secrets around," Brown said as
he prepared to return to the
mainland for the next load of
passengers.
You can't just hop on the
ferry for a day at the beach.
Using the service requires
some commitment.
There are no day passes -
just monthly and annual ones.
The South Venice Beach
Association sells about 800
annual passes each year for
$75 each. Monthly passes are
$20 and the pass holder is cov-
ered for up to four guests,
Brown said.
The nearest public parking


is about 1.6 miles away at
Manasota Beach in Englewood
or 3 to 4 miles away at Casper-
sen Beach in Venice.
Precious asset
There is a core group of
beachgoers who use the service.
"They love it," Hillstrom
said. "It's extremely popular."
During the tourist season,
the ferry gets very busy. In the
summer, families use it when
school is out.
A beach committee of about
20 people plans fundraisers
and ferry-related events and
helps keep the ferry properties
clean.
"It's pretty much a break-
even proposition," Hillstrom
said.
The sheriff's office and


Coast Guard have free passes.
So do turtle patrollers working
remote zones on the beach.
Members of a special patrol
bent on eliminating Brazilian
pepper trees on ferry lands
ride for free, too.
A group of fishermen uses
the ferry to go fishing on the
beach.
"For the most part, they're
there to enjoy the beach and
the sun and they like the priva-
cy of it," Hillstrom said. "Our
beach is never overcrowded.
It's our precious asset."
Ferry passes can be bought
from ferry captains or by call-
ing the South Venice Civic
Association at 493-0006. For
more information, visit www.
southvenicebeach.org.

Manasota Key, delivering passengers to a relatively remote portion of Manasota Beach a
mile or more from parking lots.

9 Building a




bridge across



the Atlantic

BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Because of a recent visit to France, 12 American students,
including some from Pine View School, are well on their way to
learning how to build a civil society.
The students went to France May 28-June 9 to participate in USAYouth Debates
with their French counterparts. The debates coincided with
the 65th anniversary of the invasion at Normandy, France,
on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Dignitaries gathered for the occa-
sion included President Barack Obama and the president
of France.
John Tredway, of Venice, and his wife, Gloria, choreo-
graphed the trip to France and accompanied the stu-
dents. They, along with Judy and Wallace Black, served
as chaperones for the diverse group made up of eight
Florida students, two from Delaware and one each
from California and Louisiana. Three of the eight
Florida students attended Pine View School in Osprey.
Timing is everything
Tredway planned the debates to coincide with the D-Day
celebration because he wanted the students to experience the history
associated with the event that helped to end what people hoped would
Sbe the last world war.
Taking it a step further, Tredway said he tried an experiment in
France by matching two U.S. students and two French students on the
same debate team.
"Not only does this build international cooperation, but new ideas
can emerge cross-culturally," he said.
The students debated the following topics: globalization as a threat
or an opportunity; how the Ineternet generation is changing our world;
reforming education in France and the United States; and specific ways
in which France and the United States can build closer cultural ties.
The debates took place on one day, June 2, in two areas of France -

Revealing new

SAT guide

FROM NAPSA

For those students without access to
tutors, adequately preparing for the
SAT can be a challenge.
Private SAT coach Eliot Schrefer
knows that not everyone can afford
tutoring, and believes that every stu-
dent should have an equal chance to do
well on the SAT. In "Hack the SAT"
(Gotham Books), Schrefer reveals the
secret strategies and little-known tips
that have until now been accessible
only to those with private tutors.

Back-to-school prep

includes health insurance


FROM THE SARASOTA
COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT


Local health officials remind parents that in addi-
tion to immunizations, preschool and school-age
children should receive routine medical care. This
allows health problems that may affect school perfor-
mance to be addressed in their earliest treatable
stage.
The Florida KidCare program was established in
1998 to assist families who lack insurance in getting
low-cost quality health care for their children.
"Now is the time to enroll children as you are mak-
ing other preparations for your child's return to school
on Aug. 24," said Virginia Brockman, Sarasota County
Health Department's Florida KidCare coordinator.
"We know that affordable, quality medical insurance
is so important for kids to stay healthy. Having a pri-
mary source of care means you can take your kids to
the doctor instead of the emergency room when they

Coverage in the Florida KidCare program begins
once eligibility has been determined and the full premi-
um amount has been received. The amount of each
premium is based on household size and monthly
income. Most families pay either $15 or $20 per family
per month; however, some families may pay more.
Others may pay nothing at all.
Families are only required to submit one applica-
tion, which covers all Florida KidCare programs. As-
sistance with enrollment applications is available at
the Sarasota County Health Department, 2200 Ring-
ling Blvd. in Sarasota by calling 861-2813. Families
are also encouraged to apply online at www.
Floridakidcare.org.
Families who apply online get enrolled faster
because their applications tend to be more com-
plete, which reduces the wait time for missing infor-
mation or income documentation.

Siding with Venice Theatre's 'West Side Story'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Venice Theatre's Summer
Stock presentation of "West
Side Story" is a winner. Be-
ginning with a first-rate cast
selected by audition for the
theater's third Summer Stock
season, the choreography, di-
recting, set, sound, lighting,
costumes and music literally
make a great show greater.
Directed and choreogra-
phed by Brad Wages, the Sum-
mer Stock players sang and
danced their hearts out, nail-
ing one production number
after the other. That they are
doing this against a sharp set,
enhanced with cyclone fenc-
ing cleverly used as scrim and
with outstanding lighting by
John Michael Andzulis, adds
still more to the overall pro-
duction. The set and excellent
costumes were designed by the
theater's multi-award-winning
resident costume designer Nic-
holas Hartman.
Dan Smith as Riff, the leader


of the Jets, with Anthony
DeNiro, Patrick Mounce, Tyler
Bazenas, Will Betterton and
Andrew Richardson, got the
show off on the right foot with
their opening number.
"Get cool boy," Riff sang, and
he was, throughout the show.
Gunning for the Jets are the
Sharks, the Puerto Rican gang
led by Bernardo (Andrew Mor-
gan Larkin Conners). Its mem-
bers are Zack Tudor, Stephen
Emery, Artiom Popkov, Ricky
DelReal and Parker Lawhorne.
Move over Jerome Robbins.
Led byWages, these young men
fill the stage with symmetry,
syncopation and high energy.
Each young man shines, and
together the result is nearly
blinding.
The choreography is every
bit as sharp as this 20th-century
reincarnation of "Romeo and
Juliet."
This story's Romeo is Tony,
played by Kyle Luckett, who has
the clean-cut looks for the part
of the former Jet, lured out of
retirement because of a poten-


tial rumble between the rival
gangs. Maria, his love interest, is
one of the Sharks, played by
Emily Mounce, whose voice
matches her stage presence and
beauty. Mounce has grown up at
Venice Theatre, blossoming into
a fine actress and stellar singer.
She wowed audiences most
recently in "Why Do Fools Fall in
Love?" As Maria, she has found
yet another role to conquer and
did it in stunningly. Her bridal
shop duet with Luckett was a
charmer, but her rendition of "I
Feel Pretty" and her later duet
with Anita (Kaitlyn Terpstra)
were two show-stoppers.
Also bringing down the
house were Jason Brenner as
Glad Hand, one of the adult
roles in this show, and then,
possibly the best dance num-
ber in a show, filled with high-
lights, the "Officer Krupke"
number. Bazenas might have
stolen this number were it not
for the fact that this cast is so
filled with talent. So might
Betterton, Patrick Mounce, De-
Niro, Smith and Richardson.


This cast is that good.
Krupke is played by Mike
Pisacreta, who, with Gil Weide-
miller as Doc and Ronald Krine
Myroup as Shank, rounds out
the adults in the show.
The Jet girls are played by
Kim Gaesser, Jasmine Rebecca
Rose Deal, Lauren Hoefer, Na-
tasha Turner, Kimberly Cur-
han, Anastasia Herbert and
Sydney Deal. The Shark girls
were played by Kim Hough, Al-
exa Teebo, Stacy Gilson, Cassie
Lima and Ariella Pizarro.
Even the curtain call was
special a still-life vignette
featuring the entire cast.
Summer Stock productions
receive all the backing given to
MainStage productions during
the theater's main season, and
once again, with this produc-
tion, there is more proof that
Venice Theatre deserves its
spot as one of the country's
best community theaters.
Michelle Kasanofsky is the
show's musical director and
keyboardist, assisted with Teri
Booth on reeds, Mikal Mancini


on bass, Joel Broome on
drums, Michelle Neal on syn-
thesizer, Jason Brenner on
trumpet and Joseph Master-
john on guitar. Jon Meyer is the
stage manager. Laura Priscilla
Hoffman was the assistant to
the director and Hermione
Gilpin was the directing intern.
Robbins would be pleased
with this latest incarnation of
the concept that led to an
award-winning show with
book by Arthur Laurents,
music by Leonard Bernstein
and lyrics by Stephen Sond-
heim.
Tickets are $20 per person
for adults and $10 for students.
Remaining shows will be
Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
Aug. 6-8, at 8 p.m. and a mati-
nee performance at 2 p.m. on
Aug. 8.
Venice Theatre is located at
140 W Tampa Ave., on the
island in downtown Venice.

CHIROPRACTOR
Much of chiropractic treatment
involves "spinal manipulation," a high-
velocity thrust that chiropractors deliver
by hand. The intent is to move a joint
beyond its normal range of motion but
not beyond the range that it was
designed to handle. This has the effect of
providing more room for nerves to exit
the spine, relaxing the muscles by virtue
of stretching them suddenly, breaking up
adhesions or scar tissue to keep the spine

which vertebrae need to be adjusted, the
chiropractor feels the joints of the spine
while at rest and in motion. Once the
determination is made, the manipulation
is delivered manually using one of a
number of specific techniques.

P.S. Spinal manipulation has been
documented as far back as the time of
Hippocrates and the ancient Egyptians.

able prices on vaccina-
tions, flea and tick pre-


vention products, micro-

Special vaccination
packages will be avail-
able for as low as $39 for
canines and $28 for fe-
lines.
Rabies vaccinations will
be given for $8.
A pet can be micro-
chipped for $25.
Dr. Randy Hitesman,
Suncoast Humane So-
ciety's veterinarian, will
lead the medical team in
conducting the event.
All proceeds will
benefit the animals at
Suncoast Humane Soci-
ety.
Those thinking of
adding a pet to the family
may want to consider
one of the dogs or cats
that will be featured for
adoption.
Special adoption fees
will be $50 for canines
and $35 for felines.

BRIDGE from Page5B


At a national tournament in Fort Lauderdale, he met the
students from PineView School. He also went to Stanford
University in California and found a student there.
Better citizens
Even though the U.S. students spoke French before at-
tending the debates, the debates were conducted in
English, Tredway said.
"Their rules, not ours," he said.
The three Pine View School students left the debates
with a much broader understanding of French culture
and are advanced in critical thinking, according to
Tredway.
"One reason why we ask students to debate both sides
of a question is to recognize there are more than just two
sides to an issue, and debate has a way of motivating stu-
dents to do their best research, thinking and speaking on a
number of issues," he said.
He added that the skills used in debate become the
building blocks of professions learning how to think
and apply organizational skills.
"Debate can teach young people to become better citi-
zens," he said.
Iris Hoxha, ofVenice, who has studied French for five
years, said she worked with French students while in
France, and they debated on education and globalization.
"I learned how to view these issues from a different per-
spective," she said.
Hoxha will attend Comell University in the fall and will
major in biology and society in Cornell's School of Human
Ecology.
"I would love to work for Doctors Without Borders or
the World Health Organization," she said. "I firmly believe
that in order to help improve sanitary conditions for peo-
ple throughout the world, you need to first be able to
understand their mentality, which can only be done


SUN NEWSPAPERS 11B


through learning to speak a language."
Secular society
The debate experience helped Hoxha to refine her
French, she said, and better understand their differences.
For example, they have diverse legal and social ideas, such
as the concept of "laicite," which is "why Muslims aren't
allowed to cover their hair in school," Hoxha said.
Laicite is a French concept of a secular society, which
connotes the absence of religious involvement in govern-
ment affairs and calls for a division of private and public
life, according to Wikipedia.
LatifaAyad, ajunior at PineView and a Muslim, said she
wanted to attend the debates because of her strong belief
that "the youth are the world's future. It's never too early to
begin buildinginternational relations, and I wanted to play
a part in the future of the world."
Ayad has attended Pine View since third grade and
started wearing the hijab (head covering) in the eighth
grade. She found acceptance, she said, after her peers got
all of their questions answered, and now she finds people
are more curious about her religion than anything else.
It was about the same in France. The French allowed
her to wear the hijab during the debates out of"respect for
my culture and beliefs," she said.
That was true even though one of the debates was in
the French National Assembly building, where French
Muslims are not allowed to wear the hijab.
Ayad stayed with a Muslim in Paris who did not wear
the hijab. Ayad's take on it is that wearing the hijab is for-
bidden because the French stress equality over personal
liberties in school and the workplace.
"Everyone was very kind to me during my travels," she
said. "I do not plan to go into politics, but I believe it is
always important to be aware of cultural differences across
the globe. I feel I have a broader understanding of the cul-
tural differences between the U.S. and France; but more
importantly, I feel that I have learned to embrace our sim-


ilarities."
Erik Dettenmayer graduated from Pine View in the
spring and is heading to Florida State University He speaks
conversational French and has served four years on the
Pine View debate team.
He said the trip to France focused more on building
relations than on intense competitive debate.
"Thus, open-mindedness was a key characteristic in
the selection process," he said, explainingwhyhe thinks he
was chosen for the trip.
Dettenmayer wants to be an officer in the military "My
only dream is to be provided an opportunity to show my
worth in wearing the uniform of my country," he said.
While he said he learned more than what a few bullet
points could cover, he was impressed with the "reverence
for the liberating troops held by the French on the an-
niversary of the Normandy invasion."
"The French have not forgotten the sacrifices that our
soldiers endured for the liberation of France," he said.
Building civility
The community will be hearing more about civility in
the future because the Sarasota County School District is
taking steps to improve it in all area schools.
Through grant funding from Gulf Coast Community
Foundation ofVenice and tenets set down by the Eunice
Kennedy Shriver Community of Caring organization in
Salt Lake City, many local schools are now emphasizing
that they are a Community of Caring school. School
staffs are teaching with a focus on caring, respect,
responsibility, trust and family as well as academics. The
intent is to drive civility among students so they become
successful citizens who build successful communities.
The USAYouth Debate experience gave one group of
students the opportunity to practice what the propo-
nents of the Community of Caring organization are sug-
gesting.

Kelly Keenan, left, and Ovideo Santiago anchor the sign for
the first Sunset Sip and Stroll at Nokomis Beach July 18
after a strong wind disrupted the preparations.


Just down the beach from the Sip and
Stroll event, drummer Antonio Calusa,
in the yellow shirt, plays while Daina
Shukis dances for the Nokomis Beach
drum circle.


Sunset Sip


MARTY DOVER


Diane and Skip Maskol are about to try
a different wine at the Crow's Nest dock-
side wine tasting July 23.


A strong wind blew down
the tents but the rain held off
for the first Sunset Sip and
Stroll at Nokomis Beach July
18. Dorian Mattox, a program
coordinator for Sarasota
County Parks and Recreation,
glanced over her shoulder at
the menacing black sky in the
northwest as she greeted vis-
itors to a still-sunny beach.
Co-sponsorVillage On The
Isle laid down a Mobi-mat,
making the beach accessible
for those in wheelchairs or
walkers. Steel Pan Dan
picked up his blown-over
speakers and played his steel
drum island music to the
crowd who sat facing Dan
instead of the sunset!


and Stroll blows onto Nokomis Beach


Java Florist & Cafe catered
the event, with Susan and
Gary Flynn selling cheese
plates with water for $5. A
cash bar offered beer and
wine. A short stroll down the
beach, the Nokomis Beach
drum circle provided a differ-
ent kind of entertainment,
adding to the enjoyment of
the evening.
Sunset Sip and Strolls at
Nokomis Beach are planned
for the third Saturday of each
month at 6 p.m. The next one
is Aug. 15. Bring your chair or
blanket and join the fun.
For more information
about Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation events, or to
reserve a park venue for your
own event, go to scgov.net or
call 861-5000.
More sunset sipping
As a special summer treat
for our year-round residents,
the Crow's Nest Restaurant
and Marina hosts a dockside
wine tasting on the last
Thursday of the month at 7
p.m. The cost is $10 and you
can keep your wine glass.
The July 23 event featured
six wines presented by Robin
Stephenson of Premier Bev-
erage, and just a few hors


d'oeuvres to clear your palate
between wines. It's an oppor-
tunity to discover new wines
and meet new friends while
taking in the beauty of
Roberts Bay and the marina
at sunset.
Skip and Diane Maskol,
relative newcomers to the
Venetian Golf & River Club,
learned of the event in the
Gondolier Sun. Mack and
Donna Johnson had a wine
cellar in their Sycamore, Ill.,
home, but had to switch to a
refrigerated cooler when they
moved to Lakes of Jacaranda
seven years ago.
A wine tasting is a perfect
opportunity for strangers
with a common interest -
wine to meet and get to
know each other. Start your
collection of Crow's Nest
wine glasses and new friends
Aug. 27.
Christmas in July
It was Christmas in July
the weekend of July 24 and
25, the brainchild of a few
Venice merchants who want-
ed to boost sales and do
something special for the
year-round residents. The
group swelled to 42 partici-
pants who contributed more


than $1,000 in merchandise
and gift certificates for raffle
prizes. These were divided
into three large baskets that
were put together by Gulf
Coast Gift Baskets on Miami
Avenue.
Every store featured sale
prices that were welcomed
by the shoppers. Rosanne
Brown, owner of Venice
Stationers, estimated there
were 3,000 entries in the raf-
fle. Joey Soos, working at his
parents' Meows and Growls,
said on Saturday, "We have
more sales today than we
usually do in a week."
In addition to holiday
decorations and music,
Santa's helper Ron Roy
strolled the avenues hand-
ing out candy to children.
Kerri Marshall, owner of
Kerri's Jewels and Gems,
said, "This is the most peo-
ple we've had in our store
since May," a phrase repeat-
ed by many of the mer-
chants.
Ludger Schurholz, visit-
ing with his family from
Germany, appreciated the
sales.
"In Germany we have only
one Christmas," he said. "We
like having two."


Barbara Jasper stops at the hors d'oeu-
vres table at the Crow's Nest wine tast-
ing.


Roberts Bay inlet is the background
for Donna and Mack Johnson at the
Crow's Nest wine tasting.


Visitors from Germany, the Schurholz family Ludger, Sophie and Karin are
surprised to discover Christmas in July in Venice.


Amanda Lopeman and her brother, Mitchell, visitors from
North Carolina, get a treat from Santa's helper Ron Roy
during the Christmas in July sale in Venice.


Lisa Vander Wall of Lisa's Classic Rose makes a sale to Cleo East dur-
ing the Christmas in July sale. "I think it's been a success," Vander Wall
said.


Kilwin's employee Katlyn Hagan hands out free
samples of iced caramel latte in front of the
store on Saturday. There were free samples
and treats in stores all over town for the
Christmas in July sale.

Let's Go! Page 2 August 5 6, 2009

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

Outside the
purple dome
A ffectionately known as
/4 the "Purple People
Seater," Sarasota's most
famous landmark, the Van
Wezel Performing Arts Hall,
plays host to everything from
ice shows to comedians. Elvis
Presley played there. Dorothy
Hamel skated there and many
a Broadway musical has left
audiences "Singing in the
Rain." That it was designed by
Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin
group is, for many people, a
bonus.
When the Beach Boys were
there, fans filled the hall and
had fun passing a large beach
ball back and forth across the
hall until it landed in the
engineer's booth about
midway up in the seating area.
One of the engineers had no
sense of humor and there is
stayed for some time until one
of the other guys finally sent it
back on its way.
Less often, events are held
outside the hall, on the lawn,
where patrons are invited to
being their blankets or lawn
chairs. The next such occa-
sions are Woodstock Anniver-
sary Celebration Aug. 28 and
Big Night Out, featuring a
Caribbean vibe band, Sept. 18.
Billed as "one part sunset and
one part shimmering Sarasota
Bay," these two special events
are part of the hall's FridayFest
schedule. If it rains, everyone
moves inside.
In either case there will be
plenty of food and snacks to
purchase from local vendors
so leave your own bottles and
baskets at home.
Tickets for the coming
season at the Van Wezel, 777
North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota,
go on sale this month. For
information, visit www.van-
wezel.org or call 941-953-3368.

COVER STORY-
August 5 6, 2009


Art Center Sarasota hosts four exhibitions


Let's Go! Page 3


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Art is everywhere within
Art Center Sarasota where
four exhibitions opened
simultaneously July 14.
The largest works are in
the studio to the right of
the entrance lobby and on
the far left wall of the same
area. Measuring up to 9 by
17 feet in size, the acrylic
paintings are the work of
Chris Lundy who was born
and raised at Siesta Key
where he became enam-
ored with surfing in 1965
when he was 9. Since then
he has traveled the world
in search of the perfect
wave, finally finding it on
his own canvases, which
depict the movement of
the giant waves he loves so


much as well as the tiny
droplets of water that
make up those same
waves.
Like the waves which
inspired his painting,
Lundy's works are big. The
largest in this collection,
"Beautiful Reaper," nearly
covers one wall of the front
gallery exhibit space in
which it is hung. The rest
of his work is displayed in
Gallery Two, which also is
known as the Glass Gallery.
The artist now lives in
Hawaii, where he contin-
ues to pursue his own
perfect wave.
Lundy's works are
reason enough to visit Art
Center Sarasota but there
is far more to be seen there
currently.
In Gallery Three is a


showing of work by the
Sarasota Sumi-e Society,
including works by Keiko
Romerstein who is a
featured artist and speaker
in the current Arts of Asia
show at Venice Art Center.
Sumi-e is described as East
Asian brush painting and
most often is used to
depict nature, using black
ink applied with what
appears to be a larger than
normal water color brush
set in a bamboo handle.
Florida Environmental
Artists present "Seeing
Florida" in Gallery One.
Whatever you love about
Florida is there from the
close up of a palm frond to
sunset at the beach an a
variety of landscape
interpretations. Venice
artist Clyde Butcher, who


is perhaps the dean of
Florida Environmental
Artists, has two of his
photos in the exhibit, side
by side. The exhibit was
curated by Suzanne White.
Exhibit four, which takes
up most of the larger main
gallery toward the back of
the center is "Green: the
Primary Color Juried
Exhibition." The latter is an
all media show, which
offers Florida in all its
myriad shades of green.
Several surfboards,
finished as incredible
works of art in their own
right, complete the
collection in Gallery Four.
Jurors were Patrick Fiore
and Nancy Hellbrand.
Sept. 29, from 1-6 p.m.
admissions will be
accepted for a members

'Annie' coach is coming to Sarasota


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Red-heads wanted.
With try-outs looming
for children to play the
role of Little Orphan
Annie in the Broadway
show "Annie" either on
Broadway or, in January
at Venice Theatre, it is
fitting that an Annie
expert is coming to
town.
Julie Stevens who
debuted on Broadway
in the musical "Annie"
will be coaching would-
be orphans in several
Florida cities during
August. She will be in
Sarasota Aug. 19-20,
offering workshops
from 1-4 p.m. both
days. She also will offer
classes in Tampa, Boca
Raton, Orlando and
Miami during August.
"Three of four stu-


dents she prepped for
"Annie" auditions were
hired, her long-time
friend Kim Scheintel of
Sarasota, said.
"They are going to be
doing 'Annie' at Venice
Theatre this coming
season," Scheintel said.
"and there are going to
be try-outs in New York
in the fall."
Designed for students
aged 6-13, the Sarasota
"Annie" workshops will
be given at Rosemary
Court Yoga, 810 Central
Ave., Sarasota. Designed
for students 6-13. The
cost is $125 for each 3-
hour workshop. A
sibling discount is
available.
Workshops will cover
the correct way to
perform the songs from
the show, what to
expect at an audition,


what makes a good
head shot and how
parents can crate a
resume for their child.
Children will be cri-
tiqued on their audition
and learn the dance
combination for
"You're Never Fully
Dressed Without a
Smile."
Stevens, a successful
acting coach in Los
Angeles, played Pepper
in the final cast of the
initial run of "Annie" on
Broadway. Living in
New York at the time,
she attended the New
York Professional
Children's School with
Sarah Jessica Parker,
who also was in
"Annie."
A few years later,
armed with a BFA from
NYU's Tisch School of
the Arts and a master's


in education from Bank
Street, she became a
teaching artist for
several NewYork-based
theater companies,
headed workshops in
drama for local school
and eventually became
a sough-after studio
instructor, eventually
moving to Los Angeles
Continuing her coach-
ing but also into film,
she heads up Double 19
Productions in Los
Angeles.
"She did a documen-
tary on all the girls who
were in Annie' and
what they are doing
now," Scheintel said. "I
found out at least two
girls from Sarasota are
going to New York for
the "Annie") try outs,"
Scheintel said.
Stevens' award-
winning documentary


is titled, "Life After
Tomorrow." Stevens
also set up
www.Annieorphans.co

'The Pretender' debuts at The Players


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
As summer winds down,
The Players Theatre in
Sarasota has yet another
offering- "The Pre-
tender," a new play
created by Players board
member Alan Roberts.
The comedic farce
features local celebrity
and actor Cliff Roles as
the owner of a Shake-
pearean Theatre Compa-
ny in danger of falling
down around him. That
Roles is British and has a
flair for farce should add
to the fun.
As everything that can
go wrong does so and
injuries pile up on
company members as


well as patrons, while
money becomes more
scarce, it seems as though
only a miracle can save
him and his company.
"The play begins after
the fifth accident," Roles
said. "We are performing
"Richard III." Think
summer stock. We are
performing, rehearsing
and practicing and
someone is trying to
sabotage the theater."
The theater is in
upstate New York and the
characters include Mylos
Cliff Cespedes), the
theater's janitor who was
once a janitor until he
had an accident that he
can not remember, and
an actor named Jesse


Ballantine who hates
Mylos and constantly
shows his animosity
toward him, Roles said.
There also is an old
woman (Lee Lawler) who
is seen on the phone
talking to the saboteur
(unseen).
"At the end of the day,
the owner is nearly
bankrupt and ready to
give up but then some-
thing happens," Roles said.
There also is a little love
interest, played by Lillian
Moore who, in real life
broke her foot and will
perform while wearing a
cast and using crutches,
Roles said.
Also in the show are
Stephen Horowitz, Justin


Irwin, Lee Lawler, Michael
Morris, Gino Norman,
Linda Ann Remley and Bill
Sarazen. The play is
directed by Cinda Goeken,
assisted by Tim Minar with
Johanna Griese as stage
manager.
"The Pretender" will be
presented Aug. 6-8 at 8
p.m. and on Aug. 9 at 2
p.m. at The Players, 838
North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota.
Tickets are $15 for adults
and $12 for students. Call
the box office at 941-365-
2494 Monday-Saturday
from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. or visit
www.theplayers.org.
Tickets also are available at
the door one hour before

Celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of Kaleidoscope musical theatre workshop


PROVIDED BY THE ASOLO
REPERTORY THEATRE
Asolo Repertory
Theatre and Community
Haven for Adults and
Children with Disabili-
ties, Inc. (CHAC) cele-
brate the fifteenth
anniversary of Kaleido-
scope musical theatre
workshop with a new
musical written by Linda
Blom, an original
member of the Kaleido-
scope ensemble.
Directed by Kaleido-
scope co-founder/direc-
tor and performing artist
Ann Morrison, the
workshop culminates in
two public perfor-
mances on the Asolo
Rep mainstage, the
Mertz Theatre, Aug. 7
and 8 at 7 p.m.
The Kaleidoscope
Summer Workshop is an
innovative musical


theatre program
designed for teens and
adults with developmen-
tal disabilities. Each year
Asolo Rep partners with
CHAC to teach 18
unique participants
skills in acting, dance,
music, and stage craft,
while working toward a
final performance. This
year's Kaleidoscope
program continues to
create an opportunity
for groundbreaking
theatrical work as
Kaleidoscope staff
members help the
participants grow as
performers and individ-
uals. Clinical goals, set
for each participant, are
achieved through
creative exploration,
which strengthens a
variety of communica-
tions skills and ultimate-
ly enriches their every-


day lives. Performing to
sold-out audiences and
a growing fan base year
after year, these actors
have consistently proven
their artistic merit in the
community.
"In the beginning, the
original dream for the
founders of the Kaleido-
scope program was
really for it to be doing
musicals," Morrison
said. "And we did that
one year with the
touring company when
they did Oklahoma. The
Kaleidoscope adaptation
was unique and brilliant,
and everyone loved it.
Kaleidoscope has
evolved tremendously
over the last 15 years.
The productions are
original, the company
has grown, and the
shows play on the Asolo
Rep mainstage to a full


house. I am very excited
we're performing a
musical this season and
even more excited that
it's an original piece
written by one of the
earliest company
members. It feels like
we're reconnecting to
our roots and the birth
of the Kaleidoscope
program. To top it off,
this incredibly unique
and talented group of
artists is experiencing
what it's like to work on
a musical production."
According to Morrison,
the company is learning
the professional protocol
for working on a musical
production by creating
contracts, selecting
representatives, learning
the rules and making a
commitment to the
production quality. They
are also creating props,


scenery and costumes.
Ultimately, the company
will even experience the
thrill of performing their
show in the ambiance of
a professional
theatre-Asolo Rep's
mainstage-The Mertz
Theatre.
About the Play: "Take a
Bite, (Oh Applesauce)" is
a musical written by
Linda Blom, one of the
oldest company mem-
bers of Kaleidoscope.
The piece was first
conceived for a program
called Random Play
Company in which Blom
was one of three Kalei-
doscope members
provided with an oppor-
tunity to write their own
theatre pieces, maintain
artistic control of their


work, and have profes-
sional actors perform
them. This musical is
inspired by her love of
musical theatre. It
incorporates traces of
"The Fantastics,"
"Oklahoma," and
touches of "Snow White"
and other shows.
Take a Bite, (Oh
Applesauce) is Blom's
first play. She lives in
Sarasota with her
parents and attends
Community Haven for
Adults and Children
with Disabilities, Inc.
Tickets are $15; or $10
for students and $45 for
a family package of four
tickets. Call the Asolo
Rep box office at 941-
351-8000 or toll-free

The Breakers offers summer price breaks


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Great American resorts
such as The Breakers in
Palm Beach are usually in
a class by themselves -
with prices to match.
This summer, at least for
the sporting crowd, The
Breakers has an offer
almost too good to pass
up. Hotel guests get
unlimited golf, tennis and
fitness classes daily plus a
whole list of other ameni-
ties at reduced prices. The
room rate for this deal is
$225 per night, or close to
half what it would cost in
season. Considering that
green fees for 18 holes are
$205-$215 per person in
season, it is almost like
staying free at one of the
world's finest resorts.
Both 18-hole courses are
sensational. The ocean
course is the oldest golf
course in the state, dating
to 1897. Feat not, it was
reconstructed in 2000,
under the supervision of
Brian Silva. Located on
140 acres along the
Atlantic Ocean, it not only
occupies some of the
state's most expensive real
estate but has a course
rating of 68.1 for the men
and 69 for the ladies. It is a
par 70 course for both. For
more competitive players,
the Rees Jones Course 11
miles from the hotel offers
a 74.9 rating for the men
on the 7,104-yard course
with a slope of 140. For the
women, the rating is 70.7;
the yardage is 5,164 and
the slop is 125.
Or switch to tennis
where you can play on
Har-Tru courts, which
normally cost $25 per
hour, per person. Courts
are lighted and open until
9 p.m. nightly.
And, guess staying
Sunday through Wednes-
day also receive free

Breakers' history
In its second century and
third or fourth reincarna-
tion, The Breakers is tied to
the history of Florida,
especially to the east coast,
which boomed with the
development of Henry
Morrison Flagler's Florida
East Coast Railroad.
Flagler, a partner of John
D. Rockefeller in the
Standard Oil Company,
made a fortune in Cleve-
land and New York.
Looking for a new chal-
lenge, a with millions of
dollars in dividends
pouring in, Flagler bought
and built Florida railroads
on the east coast at about
the same time that Henry
Plant was acquiring
railroads and building
hotels on Florida's West
coast.
Twice burned to the
ground and completely
rebuilt, the hotel also has
an extensive history of
major renovation work,
dating to its earliest days
and continuing to this day.
Its Italian Renaissance
design dates 1926, when it
was rebuilt after its second
fire. The 11.5 month
project cost $7 million was
built to be as fire-proof
and hurricane-proof as
possible in that day while
also being built fast
enough to not miss the
"season."


Directions:
Take Interstate 75 to Exit 141 (SR-80). Travel east on SR-80/US-98 which
is sometimes Palm Beach Boulevard, sometimes Main Street and,
eventually, Southern Boulevard. After crossing US-441 move to the left
lane and watch for signs to the Florida Turnpike. Turn left and travel north
on the Turnpike one exit to Exit 99 (Okeechobee Boulevard). The toll is 20
cents. Follow the exit ramp and then turn left onto Okeechobee Boulevard
at the light. Continue east to A1A, crossing over the Royal Park Bridge. Stay
to the left when you reach the island, turning left on South County Road.
The Breakers will be on your right just north of Barton Avenue.

gray stucco building.


The family pool at The Breakers is a popular destination.


The Breakers is where
East Coast Society spent
the winter "season" year
after year. To this day it is
owned by Flagler heirs
who continue the legacy of
the patriarch in the way in
which they maintain and
improve the property and
cater to their guests.

Maintenance
Kelly Leydin, my guide
for a tour of the famed
resort, said some $25
million is spent each year
to maintain the property.
As we strolled the exten-
sive grounds and build-
ings, that was apparent
from the scaffolding and
masons working on one
part of the building to
landscapers doing their
thing in another place.
None of the work inter-
fered with the happy
guests enjoying the
multiple pools and
cabanas and other public
and private places at The
Breakers. One of the latest
improvements is to the
shoreline itself. The beach
is filled with bright and
colorful lounges and
umbrellas and the various


pool areas just behind the
beach have their own
personalities and
ambiance. Work out in the
lap pool. Play and cavort in
the family pool or sit back
and enjoy the peace at the
adult pool with its private
cabins that can be rented
for the day. Yet another
pool features cabanas and
yes, there is even a fifth
pool and, of course, a
complete spa and fitness
facility.
Green at The Breakers is
really Green. Florida
friendly plants have ruled
since 1996 when an effort
was made to restore the
prevalence of native plants
to the property. Requiring
less care and saving
money and natural
resources, the change has
proven to be a magnet for
wildlife such as birds and
butterflies and remains
lush and green all year
around. A reverse osmosis
system produces 500,000
gallons of irrigation water
daily. Thinking green has
saved the resort, and
Floridians, 95 million
gallons of drinking water
annually.


Linger longer
Looking at hand-painted
and/or gilded ceilings,
ornate draperies at the
windows and resting
awhile while seated on
stunning upholstered
pieces, one simply wants
to stay awhile to take it all
in. This is not a place to
check in at 3 p.m. and
leave the next day at noon.
The Breakers is a place to
stay for several days,
savoring the food at its
many restaurants, splurg-
ing on room service for an
occasional breakfast and
even to shop in the hotel's
own stores. Leydin said the
hotel operates all the
stores itself. Ralph Lauren
and Steuben are the only
two on-property shops. Its
newest shop is Mix, which
like the others, is designed
to offer something
different and unexpected
for hotel guests. In this
case, the merchandise is a
mix of new and different
accessories, especially
jewelry.
Between golfing, pool
time, shopping, tennis,
fitness classes and spa
time, one needs suste-
nance. There are nine
restaurants on site and two
nearby one in West
palm Beach and one in the
heart of Palm Beach.
Resort wear is suggested
for the off-property
restaurants as well as
within The Tapestry Bar


and in The Circle for
Sunday Brunch. Casual
and sportswear is accept-
able at The Circle at other
times and most of the
other restaurants. At the
Beach Club and The
Ocean Grill, swim suit
coverups are requested.
The Breakers spa is
20,000 square feet of
luxury in a Mediterranean-
style building. Treatments
are inspired by the nearby
ocean and feature Guer-
lain skin care treatments,
body wraps, scrubs, indoor
and outdoor treatments,
an oceanfront whirlpool
spa, steam and sauna
facilities for men and
women and an oceanview
fitness center. A compli-
mentary fitness center also
is located in the main
hotel.
Additional facilities
include a games arcade,
children's craft and movie
areas and conference
facilities.
To get the feel of the
resort, plan a three- or
four-night stay. To really
unwind, spend a week. As
it is only a three- hour
drive from the Venice-Port
Charlotte area, the savings
of time and airfare, more
than justifies such a stay.
Yet another bonus no
theme park tickets to buy!
The Breakers is a theme.

Six finalists of play writing contest to have works read on stage at The Players Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
For budding play-
wrights, all the world's a
stage.
That is especially true
at The Players Theatre
in Sarasota, where the
six finalists of the
theater's ninth annual
play writing contest will
have their prize-win-
ning works read on
stage next month.
The finalist plays
cover the world in
subject matter, theme
and situations. They
were selected from
more than 30 entries by
a panel of judges that
scored them for such
aspects as plot, charac-


ter development and
entertainment value.
The judges were The
judges June Gordon,
Louise Stinespring,
Amanda Schlachter and
the Players Artistic
Director, Jeffrey Kin,
who also served as the
facilitator of the event.
The final judging to
select one winner will
involve the audiences
attending the readings,
which will be presented
Aug. 10-15 at 7:30 p.m.,
the final event of the
theater's SNAP (Some-
thing New At Players)
series. Audience partici-
pants who attend all six
readings may choose
three plays. One play


with the most votes
from judges and audi-
ence will be named the
winner and will be
produced during the
summer of 2010.
Readings will include:
"Every Girl Wants to be
Annie" by Peter Neil
Nason, "Fireflies" by
Daniel J. Knauf, "Private
Proceedings" by Phil
Hall, "The Checkered
Flag" by Jack Gilhooley
(contains adult situa-
tions and language),
"The Fullness of Time"
by David Coyle and "The
Powder Room" by Mark
Kenneally. Coyle's work
contains adult situa-
tions, sexual content
and religious overtones.


Although The Players
is known for its musical
theater offerings,
musicals are not accept-
ed in the play-writing
contest. It is open to
anyone, aged 18 and
over, living along the
Gulf Coast from the
Tampa/Clearwater area
to Fort Myers. Full plays
are preferred as sentries
although one-act plays
will be considered. This
year's contest guidelines
included a cast limit of
eight.
"We are impressed
with the level of talent
in the region," Kin said.
The Players is at 838
North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota. The box office


is open daily form 10
a.m.-4 p.m. and one
hour before all perfor-
mances. Series tickets
are $36 per person. A
ticket for any three
plays is $21 and single


tickets are $8 per
person. Performances
will begin nightly at
7:30 p.m. Play's the
Thing tickets are not
available on line. Call
941-365-2494.


Roger Daltrey embarks on solo tour


Tickets on
sale Saturday
PROVIDED BY
BARBARA B. MANN PER-
FORMING ARTS HALL
Roger Daltrey has one
of rock's most legendary
voices, but he doesn't take
it for granted.
That's why the set of solo
dates he'll be playing has
been dubbed the Use It or
Lose It Tour.
Tickets for the Novem-
ber 27 performance at the
Barbara B. Mann Per-
forming Arts Hall will go
on sale at 10 a.m. Satur-
day at the box office, by
calling 239-481-4849 or
online at
www.bbmannpah.com.
As lead singer for The
Who, he's lent his
Olympian pipes to a
staggering array of


enduring rock 'n' roll
anthems. And with plans
for the band's next tour
still up in the air, Daltrey
decided a solo jaunt his
first since 1985 would
be just the thing "to keep
my voice in trim, so I'll be
ready," he explains.
"Those songs demand a
lot of voice!"
Of course, the iconic
singer's vocal regimen is
just part of the equation.
"I thought it'd be nice to
play smaller, more
intimate venues," he says.
"I look forward to getting
back to that. I want to
give people a good night
out. The economic
situation being what it is
these days, I think that's
what they want: to go out
and feel they've had a
good jolly-up."
Those venues (which,
though hardly small, are


certainly intimate
compared to the arenas
The Who has been
rocking for the last
several decades) include
Nashville's famed Ryman
Auditorium, Denver's
Paramount Theatre, L.A's
Orpheum, Baltimore's
Lyric, and several promi-
nent casinos, House of
Blues locations and Hard
Rock Cafes.
Daltrey will be joined
onstage by a longtime
collaborator,
guitarist/backup singer
Simon Townshend ("His
harmonies work beauti-
fully with my voice,"
Daltrey notes), and a
stellar crew of American
players, including
guitarist/musical director
Frank Simes, keyboardist
Loren Gold, bassist Jon
Button and drummer
Scott Devours.


Promising a healthy
serving of Who songs
("but they'll be my
versions of them"), solo
material including some
songs he's never played
live and covers that pay
tribute to his influences
and admired contempo-
raries, Daltrey relishes the
chance to showcase
dimensions of his vocal
ability that even longtime
fans haven't yet experi-
enced. "I think I have
one of those unique,
recognizable rock voices,"
he ventures with typical
understatement. "Even
in a Who show there's
enormous range, but this
show will give me an even
greater opportunity to
explore."

atrons arriving at
the Nav-a-Gator
whether by car,
motorcycle, or boat will
find "The Real Florida." A
sense of humor prevails
everywhere you look,
from the furry creature
that hangs from the front
door to the sculpture of
the cavorting alligator in
the garden dining area.
The walls are full of
posters, tongue-in-cheek
slogans, stuffed fish, a
gator head, and kids' art
work. Even the ceiling
commands attention with
its hanging model
airplanes, fishing rods,
more posters, and an
incongruous disco ball! In
addition to proclaiming
all-day happy hour every
day, a blackboard asserts,
"It is not fast food; it is
not half-fast food, it is
full-slow food!" There is
certainly enough around
to hold your attention if
you do have to wait.
Although "Old Florida"
appeared on the menu

with a selection of gator
bits, conch fritters, and
swamp cabbage, we
decided to share the
unusual appetizer
offering of Bay scallop
cakes ($7.99). In concert
with the lack of preten-
sions in the d6cor, our
pretty server brought us
napkins, foam dishes, and
plasticware to eat our two
deep-fried golden shell
fish cakes along with
commercial mini-tubs of
tartar and cocktail sauces.
The cakes' sweet scallop
filling deserved a lighter
and less oily crust. We
ordered a special to share:
Cucumber Salad ($3.95).
It was simply a tossed
salad, with lots of cucum-
bers on top. The vegeta-
bles were crisp and fresh.

His Redfish sandwich

special: a whole black-

perfectly turned out.
Instead of the French fries
which come with this dish
he substituted sweet
potato fries ($2.25), a
good choice. They were
sweet and crispy without
a hint of oil. Her BBQ
pulled pork sandwich
($6.95), a special, was
kind of ordinary. It cost
