lead budget Q&A


Budway O'Connell
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council made a
number of preliminary deci-
sions during a budget work-
shop on Tuesday, among them
confirming financial assis-
tance for a number of commu-
nity nonprofit organizations.
Council even added fund-
ing for a new program -
$5,000 for the South County
Food Bank. In addition to food
donations from churches,
businesses and individuals,
the food pantry spends about
$7,100 per month on supple-
mental food purchases from
area supermarkets. Last year
the organization served 15,551
individuals.
Council also gave tentative
approval to hike its donation
from $5,000 to $7,500 to the
Sons of Italy, which puts on the
city's annual Fourth of July
parade. Mike Gelormino, who
represents the organization,
said the city needs to step up
to the plate and fill what has
become a major void a lack
of marching bands.
'At least provide funding for
local concert bands," Gelormi-
no said.
He also suggested expand-
ing the July 4 celebration by a


day or two prior to the parade
as a way to attract interest in
the area and boost business.
Council asked Gelormino to
come back with additional in-
formation on estimated costs
and manpower required to
make it happen.
Other nonprofits to receive
funding next year are: Venice
MainStreet $25,000; Economic
Development Corporation
$22,149; Sarasota County
Openly Plans for Excellence
$10,000; and Solutions To
Avoid Red Tide $2,000.
Spending questioned
Apartment landlord Don
O'Connell again urged council
to take a closer look at the city's
monthly $2 water service
charge, calling it an unneces-
sary and unfair tax on all prop-
erty owners.
O'Connell said the water
service charge raises $400,000
annually $1.6 million over
the past four years and the
city administration hasn't been
able to account for how the
funds are utilized.
Council asked the city man-
ager and public works/utilities
director to respond as they
work through a new utility rate
study which is expected to rec-
ommend an increase prior to
final adoption of the budget.
Council 'perks'
Venice Taxpayer League
president Gary Budway, said
he supported more belt tight-
ening in city government, be-
ginning with council itself.

After more than 30 years in business, the Venice Kmart store is expected to close in November.



Blue light going out


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Just a few days after announcing its "Blue
light shines bright" campaign with sizzling
summer and back-to-school savings, Kmart
released details of 11 store closures, including
its only store in Venice, in the Jacaranda Plaza on
U.S. 41 Bypass.
A liquidation company will start the sale of
inventory on Sept. 17 and the tentative date for
closure is Nov. 15.
As leases of the 1,300 Kmart stores across the
country come up for renewal, each store is eval-
uated and a determination made to close those
that are less profitable. The Venice store's lease
was one of two in Florida not renewed, con-
firmed Kim Freely, spokesperson for Kmart. The
other is in Tarpon Springs.
Eighty associates in the Venice store are


affected by the closure and will receive sever-
ance packages. They are being notified of
vacancies in other Kmart and Sears stores.
Benderson Development Company of
University Park, Sarasota, purchased Jacaranda
Plaza during the construction boom of the mid-
2000s, announcing plans to completely reno-
vate the dated property. The plan was delayed as
the economy began collapsing. The Denny's
restaurant on an outparcel closed, followed by a
jeweler and several smaller stores moving out.
Several storefronts are currently empty.
Kmart, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sears
Holdings Corporation started in Michigan in
1962 and grew into a major national retailer. In
2002 it filed for bankruptcy, subsequently pur-
chasing Sears, Roebuck. In January 2009 it
employed 130,000 associates in 1,368 stores.

Local man scams the scammer

Venice resident Joseph Shubert,
who thwarted a scam, and one of
his dogs, Angel.


A scammer got a taste of his
own medicine when he called
Venice resident Joseph Shu-
bert recently.
A man calling himself Pete
Meyers from a company he
referred to as Global Inter-
national called Shubert and
told him he'd won $2.5 million.
Shubert was told to wire $500
to Dwaye Newell, 10 Peach
Tree Blvd., Portland, Jamaica,
West Indies, in order to claim
his prize money.
"This Meyers guy knew that
there was a Walmart near
Jacaranda Boulevard and ask-


ed if there was an island here
with a Publix," Shubert said.
He was told to go to one of
those two places and ask for a
sender's form, fill it out and
wire the money.
"Do not tell anyone about
this," the man calling himself
Meyers said.
That's when Shubert, a for-
mer director of security at
Village On The Isle and a li-
censed security officer who
does security consulting work,
proved to be a little untrust-
worthy.
He told Meyers he couldn't
talk to him at that moment

Lack of lease is problem for owner


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Judith Mattison will think
twice, now, before letting any-
one stay in a home she owns.
Mattison was preparing to
refurbish her house and rent it
after moving in with her
boyfriend. Before she could do
that, however, her daughter's
boyfriend got out of jail and
needed a place to stay.
Mattison told him he could
stay in her house for three
weeks for $100 a week. When
the man told her he didn't have
any money, Mattison told him
there were odd jobs that need-
ed to be done before the reno-


vation, so he could do those in
lieu of rent.
Stopping by the house one
day, she was surprised to find
10 people inside. She told the
man he could no longer stay in
her house.
A few days later her daugh-
ter called and told her she'd
better check on the house.
"My daughter said he had
had a party at the house and
built a skateboard ramp from
the ground to the roof that
they had been skateboarding
on," Mattison said. "They had
also set trash cans against the
neighbor's wooden fence, set

The Office of the Comptrol-

the Federal Deposit Insurance

When the bank reopened
on Saturday morning, cus-

Rumors flew that cash was


missing.
"There is none I know of,"
said Norm Stalicky, CEO of

Milestone: Council approves comprehensive plan


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


It's not finished yet, but the Venice
City Council reached a major milestone
Tuesday when it approved a draft com-
prehensive plan. Staff will put the final
touches on it over the next 10 days per
council's latest direction before sending
it to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs. DCA will review the
plan and respond with an "ORC report"
(Objections, Recommendations and
Comments) within 60-90 days. Council
may revise the plan accordingly and
hold two public hearings prior to its
final adoption.
There's no question DCA will have
some concerns with the city comp
plan, especially as it pertains to urban
sprawl and low-income housing, said
Zoning and Planning Director Tom
Slaughter on numerous occasions.
The city began updating the 1999


Comp Plan starting with Envision
Venice meetings in 2004. Council
adopted a draft comp plan in late June
2007, and received DCA's ORC Report
in mid-September 2007. Anticipating
the November 2007 election, council
took no action.
Three slow growth candidates were
elected Mayor Ed Martin, Sue Lang
and Ernie Zavodnyik in a landslide.
Their first official act was to seek a six-
month extension from DCA to reduce
height and density throughout much of
the city via the comp plan. Twenty
months later, after no less than 60
pubic hearings and workshops, the
plan was approved by a vote of 6-1,
with Council Member John Simmonds
voting against.
Simmonds said the plan was defec-
tive in numerous ways.
"We can expect numerous lawsuits
in the future," Simmonds said. "It is an
invitation to file Burt Harris suits."


He reiterated his opposition to lock-
ing in specific height and densities
allowed in each neighborhood, which
he argued, were better placed in the city
land use regulations, and will require
DCA approval if left in the comp plan.
"In my judgment the plan has too lit-
tle provisions for exceptions, which will
cause us problems in the future in that
we will have to ask Tallahassee for per-
mission to make minor changes for
individual projects," Simmonds said.
Council Member John Moore
caught some key last-minute over-
sights, including a leftover definition
of "dwelling" the same definition that
Judge Robert Bennett ruled allowed
short-term rentals and led to a protract-
ed lawsuit recently settled for $300,000.
Another last-minute addition to the
plan was a generic "vesting rights" pol-
icy, designed to make sure any develop-
ment project already in the permitting
stage can proceed.


Mayor Ed Martin said the plan meets
a community goal to restrain unbridled
growth and height in the city, and leaves
adequate flexibility in the plan.
Council Member Ernie Zavodnyik
called it a "major development" in his
first term in office.
"I felt it was an open process. There
was a tremendous amount of meetings, a
lot of input from the Venice community,
boards and task forces, planning and
zoning staff, and (consultants) Wade-
Trim over 20 months, so I think a lot went
into this. Compromises had to be made,
listening to points made by the commu-
nity-whether they were made by devel-
opers or (individual) property owners.
The 2009 Venice Comprehensive
Plan establishes a three-story, 42-feet
building height limit in much of the
city, emphasizes mixed-use develop-
ment in North Venice, and, for the first
time, identifies redevelopment districts
within city limits.


New start for
BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


C


In order to be revitalized, Osprey's waterfront may
have to be extended so far east it crosses U.S. 41.
That prospect emerged, in a figurative sense, this
week as the community prepared to restart the
process of deciding how the proposed waterfront
revitalization, currently 14 acres west of the highway,
will be carried out.
Now in the fourth year of wrangling among
Sarasota County, the Osprey Revitalization Committee
and the newly formed Osprey Civic League, the ques-
tion of waterfront revitalization will be raised again
Aug. 21 through 26 in a communitywide charette. It
will be held at the South Bay shopping center.
An earlier charette was held in 2008 after County
Commissioner Nora Patterson suggested it.
Property owners in the 14-acre area hope to pur-
sue creating a planned mixed-use infill zoning dis-
trict. That requires holding a charette, which forces
developers to develop a plan based on public input
tempered by the knowledge and experience of pro-
fessional architects and planners.
The concept has grown in use across the country
in urban planning.
Osprey's charette is expected to offer residents the
opportunity over 101/2 hours to become more deeply
involved in the process than at a neighborhood work-
shop.
Three petitions have been submitted since 2005 by
a developer who wants to revitalize the 14 acres. The
first two were rejected by the community. The third
was delayed for consideration until December by the
board of county commissioners.
The most recent proposal, made last spring, called
for a 178-room luxury hotel, six haciendas, a restau-
rant, retail stores and parking on the shores of the
Intracoastal Waterway.
If completed, the hotel would be the third-largest
in the county, behind the Ritz-Carlton and the
Sarasota Hyatt.
A proposed 57-foot height limit created consider-
able opposition by neighbors. Osprey's present height
limit is 35 feet.
Peter Katz, the county's new smart growth/urban
planning director, suggested to the Osprey Civic League
that "maybe Bay Street Village should be included in the
charette discussions. Shut-down projects are hard to
restart without changing their concept," he said.
Katz, a nationally recognized authority on New
Urbanism, predicted that demand for the residential


)sprey waterfront
portion of Bay Street Village would remain low
because of its design.
Bay Street's plan was conceived by developer
Henry Rodriguez for 59 acres of land bounded by the
highway, Bay Street and Old Venice Road. He bought
the land from 41 owners, then sold 23 acres to Wal-
Mart for a Supercenter that has operated since 2007.
The remaining 37 acres were sold to a commercial
developer and the Waterford Companies, which
planned to build several hundred condominiums
and townhouses.
None of the residential units was built. An 11-acre

with any Est6e
or more. Worth


it revitalization
parcel approved for mixed-use currently houses three
operating businesses, all of which own their space in
condominium arrangements with the developer.
The original plan called for condominiums to be
built above first-floor retail stores, restaurants and
professional offices. No residential units have been
sold yet.
"The original plats of Osprey more than 100 years
ago refer to the area as 'the Village of Osprey.' It makes
as much sense today," said David Merrill, president of
the civic league. "Maybe with a fresh start, we can have
our village and a revitalized waterfront all in one."

Fresh start could revitalize Osprey waterfront


BY GERALD A.
ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

In order to be revital-
ized, Osprey's waterfront
may have to be extended
so far east it crosses U.S.
41.
That prospect emerg-
ed, in a figurative sense,


this week as the commu-
nity prepared to restart
the process of deciding
how the proposed water-
front revitalization, cur-
rently 14 acres west of the
highway, will be carried
out.
Now in the fourth year
of wrangling among
Sarasota County, the Os-


prey Revitalization Com-
mittee and the newly
formed Osprey Civic
League, the question of
waterfront revitalization
will be raised again Aug.
21 through 26 in a com-
munitywide charette. It
will be held at the South
Bay shopping center.

Local doctor wants Martinez' seat


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Venice orthopedic surgeon Dr. Julio
Gonzalez thinks it's the perfect time for
medical professionals to get involved in
politics. That's why he's filed his appli-
cation to be named as
the replacement for
U.S. Sen. Mel Martin-
ez.
"We have seen a
consistent, dramatic
erosion of our ability
to take care of our
patients properly," he
said. "I think the gov-
ernor needs to have Gonzalez
the option to appoint
someone who is well versed on health
care."
Gonzalez has written a book on
health-care reform: "Health Care Re-
form: THE TRUTH." He's also partici-
pated in town hall meetings as a speak-
er and expert panel member in Naples
and Venice on the subject of health care
and how it should look in the future.
Still, he admits he has no political
experience, and he is definitely focused
on health-care issues. But he insists
that isn't all he's committed to.
"I'm very committed to making a dif-
ference not only in health care but in
protecting our liberties in other areas
where we can flourish and blossom,"
he said.
He cites the many leadership posi-
tions he's held throughout his career
that would serve him well as a U.S. sen-
ator. For example, Gonzales is serving
or has served as chief of surgery-elect
and chief of staff-elect at Venice
Regional Medical Center, councilor on
the board of councilors of the American
Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons,


delegate to the house of delegates of
the Florida Medical Association and
chair of the legislative committee of the
Florida Orthopaedic Society.
"The lesson I've learned from these
experiences is that it really doesn't mat-
ter what pool they throw you into, it's
what you do while you're there that
counts whether you have limited or
extensive experience," he said.
Should Gov. Charlie Crist appoint
him to replace Martinez, Gonzales said,
he has cultivated relationships in
Washington, D.C., with congressmen
Vern Buchanan and Dr. Tom Price, as
well as Dr. John Brasso, a senator from
Wyoming, and Dr. Jim Rowsey, who is a
head medical staff member for Dr. Tom
Coburn, a senator from Oklahoma.
"Dr. Coburn has a health-care
reform bill to compete with the democ-
rats," Gonzales said.
Gonzales believes government is in
too big a hurry to get a reform bill
passed, has the wrong people in charge
of the effort and that the people most
affected by it have a much lower priori-
ty than the special interests.
"I've listened to people in meetings
and they have three basic concerns
about health care," he said. "It's costing
them too much, they feel vulnerable -
as if at any moment the rug could be
pulled from under them, and they don't
trust insurance companies."
He thinks part of the reason town
hall meetings across the country are
turning into heated battlegrounds is
because politicians have stopped lis-
tening to the people.
"Somewhere we've lost what the
people are interested in," he said.
If appointed to Martinez's seat,
Gonzales hopes to change that.

was held in 2008 after
County Commissioner
Nora Patterson suggest-
ed it.
Property owners in
the 14-acre area hope to
pursue creating a plan-
ned mixed-use infill
zoning district. That re-
quires holding a cha-
rette, which forces de-
velopers to develop a
plan based on public
input tempered by the
knowledge and exper-
ience of professional
architects and planners.
The concept has grown
in use across the country
in urban planning.
Osprey's charette is
expected to offer resi-
dents the opportunity
over 10 1/2 hours to be-
come more deeply in-
volved in the process
than at a neighborhood
workshop.
Three petitions have
been submitted since
2005 by a developer who
wants to revitalize the 14
acres. The first two were
rejected by the commu-
nity. The third was de-
layed for consideration
until December by the
board of county commis-
sioners.

posal, made last spring,

Paul Martin, co-owner of the Osprey Inn Motel, looks over plans for the
facility's renovation into a three-star hotel.


Osprey Inn to go upscale


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Despite the closing of two
independent motels in Venice
in the past month, the new
owners of the Osprey Inn
Motel, 1660 South Tamiami
Trail, Osprey, have announced
extensive plans to transform it
from a two-star motel into a
three-star, high-standards in-
dependent hotel with a Euro-
pean flair.
Paul and Carolyn Martin
and business partner Rod
Thomas, operating as Osprey
Hotel Property LLC, acquired
the property for $2.4 million
from Osprey Inn LLC. The
acquisition included Cafe
1660, which is closed, and they
have purchased land along-
side the motel as well.
Working together for 23 years
in the United Kingdom refurb-
ishing commercial premises,
they launched a new sub-
sidiary, Resolve Projects LLC of
Osprey, to manage renovation
of the inn and contract work in
this area. Martin is currently
recruiting eight tradesmen
and next year will hire another
12 people.
In four weeks they start an
initial $750,000 in improve-
ments, replacing the roof of
the large ballroom and com-
pletely refurbishing the restau-
rant. It will reopen in October
as Morgan's, a contemporary
European-style coffee lounge
serving breakfast and lunch
and in the evening becoming a
wine bar serving dinner.
Major renovations to swim-
ming-pool area are under way
with new landscaping and a
raised wooden surface around
the pool. Additional renova-
tions of the 140-room motel
starting in April are estimated
at $2.5 million.
"I am sure our neighbors
will be delighted with a quality
hotel and restaurants rather
than the recent rumors of the
property being a detention
center," said Martin.


Major changes that will
upgrade the road frontage are
two new restaurants separated
by an impressive entrance to
the ballroom. Moving to the
main entrance, the coffee shop
will be enlarged to accommo-
date guests and business peo-
ple. Tidying up the southern
approach, room access will be
changed to a new internal cor-
ridor.
Dramatic color changes to
the property and a different
landscape plan will infuse a
new, prestigious image. The
open-door image, combined
eventually with three restau-
rants along the frontage, is
designed to attract visitors and
business people.
"It is the opportunity for
this hotel to benefit the esti-
mated 50,000 drivers using
U.S. 41 daily for accommoda-
tion, social events, confer-
ences, business center activi-
ties and offices," said Martin.
The large ballroom will be
refurbished for weddings, and
several rooms are to be con-
verted to bridal suites. A state-
of-the-art gymnasium for
guests and local residents will
be built to the rear of the prop-
erty.
On the 2-acre southern lot
adjoining the hotel, Martin is
planning a day-care center
where parents can drop off
their kids for a few hours while
they go to work, shop or relax
in the gym. The northern lot
will be a parking lot for restau-
rant patrons.
Martin and his colleagues
sold their British business
interests to concentrate on this
new project, and are ensuring
it is a multi-source project
capable of riding the financial
markets.
"We are convinced this
location between Venice and
Sarasota, when transformed
into our new hotel with restau-
rants, will be a major asset to
both communities" he said.

Venice MainStreet Inc. has
two important events coming
up so mark your calendars.
First up is a new craft fair on
Miami Avenue Sept. 5 and 6
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Miami
Avenue will be filled with ven-
dors from all over the East
Coast displaying a wide variety
of interesting arts and crafts.
Then on Sunday, Sept. 20,
we are having our second an-
nual Iron Chef Competition.
The Venice Art Center will be
open to host this fun event
starting at 4:30 p.m. Tickets are
again $25 per person and that
includes a beverage of your
choice and appetizers sup-
plied by our competing chefs
from Mission Valley Country
Club, Sharky's On The Pier,
Honoluana Island Grill, Cafe
Venice and the Venice Yacht


Club.
You'll get to sample special-
ties from each of these great
chefs as well as watch them do
their magic to create a dish
using the secret ingredient.
Special guests this year will be
last year's winner, Cassariano
Italian Eatery.
James Gilmore will be keep-
ing everyone entertained with
his musical talents, so don't
miss this fun event. Tickets are
on sale at Bella Luna, Cafe
Venice, Gulf Coast Gift Baskets,
Paper Pad and Uptown Girls.
Every November for 22
years we have published a
poster celebrating Art Fest. We
were lucky to work with a won-
derful Florida artist, Joseph
LaPierre, who created the art-
work for five of these posters
over the years.
Last year Joseph featured
the Hebe Fountain and Bur-
gundy Square. Our best-selling
poster ever was four years ago
when he painted Sharky's On
The Pier.
I am very sad to let you all
know that Joseph passed away
last week while working in his
studio. All of us at Venice
MainStreet will miss his smile,
his laughter and especially his
marvelous artwork.
Last week, the Suncoast
Humane Society invited me to


participate in the judging of its
2010 pet calendar photo con-
test. What fun it was to see all
the wonderful photos of every-
one's beloved pets.
With more than 200 pho-
tographs submitted, the "ahhh"
factor was amazing, and it was
certainly difficult to be part of
choosing the front cover, the
back cover and all the pets of
the month for the 2010 calen-
dar. These calendars will go on
sale in the fall with all the pro-
ceeds going to help SCHS take
care of the shelter animals.
We have two free Friday
Night Live concerts in Cen-
tennial Park this month. Aug.
14 the Wa-na-bes will be per-
forming, and then on Aug. 28
In-Parenthesis will take the
stage. As usual, the concerts
start at 8 p.m. and end at 10
p.m. unless we are having a
summer rainstorm.
If you have any questions
about upcoming events, feel
free to contact the Venice
MainStreet Inc. office at 484-
6722. You can also give us a call
to have us put you on our e-
mail newsletter list, which will
give you all the details on the
events downtown.

Take the Rialto route back to school


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Goodwill Industries and the
merchants at the Rialto Shop-
ping Plaza on the island are stag-
ing their annual Rialto Back 2
School Fair on Saturday, Aug. 15.
Families shopping at the
plaza nearVenice Regional Med-
ical Center will find numerous
booths with free information on
community services related to
schools in the area.
It is an opportunity for busi-
nesses to show their goods and
services to the public, as their
downtown colleagues did with
the very successful Christmas
in July promotion recently. The
Rialto stores will be open from
9 a.m. and the fair, with 20
booths, begins at 11 a.m.
Displays will include Buster
the talking school bus, an ice
cream truck and a fire truck.
Free food booths, featuring
N'tino's Pizzeria, Schwann
Home Food Services, All Faiths
Food Bank and Dunkin' Do-
nuts, open at noon.
"We expect to be making 60
large pies to give away for this


big event," said Emmanuel
Antonaras, owner with brother
Anthony and father John of
N'tino's Pizzeria & Restaurant
at the Rialto. They have partic-
ipated in the event for the past
three years.
Providing cookies on the
sidewalk for the Back 2 School
Fair will be Joan Hrachovia,
assistant manager, and the
team members of the Suncoast
Humane Society, in the Rialto.
"We're also holding a 20-
percent-off sale," said Hra-
chovia.
The purpose of the school
fair is to collaborate with not-
for-profit organizations to
identify at-risk children. The
distribution of school supplies
to kids who have visited at least
nine booths begins at noon.
"Half of the backpacks are
designated for those children
and the remainder will be
given to those kids showing up
who have visited nine of the
booths at the fair, while stocks
last," said the Rev. Dr. Tom
Pfaff, chaplain and Goodwill
director of neighborhood or-
ganizing.


He said the Goodwill back-
packs are filled with school
supplies provided by sponsors
and suppliers including Bank
of America, Trustco Bank, the
Sarasota Family YMCA, Wal-
mart Supercenter, United
Methodist Churches and All
Faiths Food Bank.
Goodwill's new 17,000-
square-foot Good Neighbor
Center megastore at the Rialto
opens at 9 a.m. with the official
grand opening taking place at
11:30 a.m. Customers can par-
ticipate in a door prize compe-
tition to win gifts provided by
Publix Supermarkets.
"Our store is brimming with
bargains, fully stocked with
merchandise," said Marylou
England, vice president of re-
tail. "We welcome shoppers."
Double the size of its former
location at the other end of the
shopping center, this center
covers a total of 30,000 square
feet, housing not just the store,
but a complete training facility
with offices. It is the focal point
for all Goodwill services in
South Sarasota County.

according to Jeff Seward,
county chief financial
planning officer. Of the
$538,485,000 allocated to
Florida by U.S. Treasury
Department, Sarasota
County is eligible for


$46.3 million.
The breakdown is
$18,534,000 and
$27,801,000, respectively,
for the Recovery Zone
Economic Development
Bond and Recovery
Zone Facility Bond pro-
grams. However, com-
missioners first had to
approve the recovery
zone designation to acti-
vate its eligibility.
Recovery zones are
designated areas having
one or more of the fol-
lowing: significant
poverty, unemployment,
home foreclosures or
general distress; current
empowerment zone or
renewal community des-
ignation; or economic
distress because of mili-
tary closures or realign-
ment.


Sarasota County offi-
cials said the county
qualifies based on its
2008 unemployment
rate of more than 10 per-
cent and home foreclo-
sure rates.
Earlier this month,
commissioners had au-
thorized advertisement
of the ordinance and
scheduled it for a vote
Tuesday.

plication and approval
will be developed during
the commission's sum-
mer hiatus in August,
Seward said.

That's when Mattison called the
sheriff. But when the deputy arrived,
Mattison was surprised to find that
nothing could be done.
"The deputy told me he couldn't
order them out of the house. He said I
would have to have them evicted
because they were receiving mail there,
even though there was no lease," she
said. "The deputy also said I couldn't
even go inside the house to get my
belongings or to do any refurbishing.
He told me to stay off the property."
Mattison was stunned.
"If I hadn't moved in with my
boyfriend, I would be homeless," she
said.

Wendy Rose, community affairs
manager of the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office, said the deputy acted
appropriately and gave Mattison cor-
rect information.
"She can give him seven days' writ-
ten notice to get off the property, but if
he isn't gone at that time, she will have
to go through the eviction process,"
Rose said.
Mattison said she'd been told that

process costs about $185.
Venice attorney Robert Harrison
said that someone who had illegally
gotten into Mattison's house could be
removed by law enforcement.
"However, if they are there as a regu-
lar tenant paying rent or doing work in
lieu of rent, then it takes the eviction
process to get them out," he said. "If
they are in the house with permission
- say you allow a family member to
stay without paying rent but now
they won't leave, then the 'unlawful
detainer' process would be used to
remove them."
That process is similar to the evic-
tion process, Harrison said.
Harrison also said this isn't a squat-
ter situation.
"The sheriff's office looks at this as
more of a relationship issue rather than
a squatter, because you let them in and
they are getting mail there," he said.
"Once they've moved in and are living
there, it isn't a break-in."
Either way, Mattison will have to pay

of her house and repair the damages
they've caused before she can refurbish

His opponent in the
November election, Ted
Koszarski, said it was
another example of a
program established un-
der a previous council
backed by the Citizens
for Quality Government
that has bestowed upon
the city a litany of prob-
lems.
'No rollbacks'
Budway also criticized
the city for what he called
excessive salaries. Cur-
rently the city has 10
nonbargaining positions
with salaries over $100,000
annually, and seven
more that make over
$90,000.
"I realize (City Man-
ager) Mr. Turner is new
and wants to reorganize
his team" but I see "no


rollbacks from city em-
ployees. Times are tough
... but a position funded
three years ago at $90,000
now goes for $130,000?
Maybe it's time to tighten
the belt," Budway said.
"My viewpoint of what
it entails to be an assis-
tant city manager may be
different from that of my
predecessor," replied
Turner. "Having said that,
I don't think any salary
adjustments are neces-
sary at this moment.
Certainly, we don't want
to overpay."
Turner, who is recom-
mending 14 positions be
cut for the upcoming fis-
cal year, assured council
that come next year there
would be additional cuts.

OUR VIEW



A thousand words about a picture


As you can see from the letters
that appear on the opposite
page, a number of readers were
incensed by our decision to print a
photo on Saturday's front page of two
pit bulls shot in self-defense by a
Venice police officer. The writers raise
a number of points for discussion.
First, some background.
Friday afternoon we received a
number of calls about a possible
shooting involving VPD officers. A re-
porter went to the reported location
and didn't see anything. That's not
uncommon, because calls like that
tend to come in as the event is wind-
ing down.
While he was gone, a man dropped
off a disc with several photos on it;
one of them was the picture that
eventually appeared in the paper. He
was able to shed a little light on the
situation, and soon information
became available from the VPD.
Given the severity of the underly-
ing charge, there was no question this
story was front-page news: A woman
claimed to have been choked to the
point of needing medical attention,
the man accused of doing it allegedly
sicced his pit bulls on the officers sent
to arrest him and an officer shot the


dogs. That's a compelling story.
We did, however, debate whether
to use a photo. In the end the clear
consensus was that we would, for
three reasons:
1. In the context of the story, the
photo was visually compelling.
2. The photo would help drive
home the consequences of the
actions of a man with little regard for
human or canine life.
3. The photo showed no blood or
gore. In fact, it's only from the words
on the page, not the picture itself, that
anyone would know the dogs were
dead and not sleeping.
Of course, that internal dialogue
couldn't accompany the photo; all
that a reader would know was that
there was a picture of two dead dogs
on the front page.
We don't expect anyone reading
this explanation to embrace our deci-
sion, which we have reviewed in the
face of the criticism we've received.
Confronted with the same situation
in the future, our discussion, though
not necessarily our decision, will be
somewhat different.
Now to address some of the ques-
tions raised in the letters. For simplic-
ity, we'll paraphrase them.


Aren't you a community paper?
Yes, a community newspaper. Unfor-
tunately, some parts of the communi-
ty are less attractive than others, as
shown by Police Beat, one of the most
popular parts of the paper (admitted-
ly, not one that appears on the front
page, though crime stories frequently
do).
How could you print such a
graphic photo? It's not graphic,
unless you consider any photo of a
dead animal graphic. Any sign of
blood or gore would have resulted in a
different decision.
Would you have printed a photo
of the suspect's bloody corpse? No,
not if we wouldn't print one of a dog's
bloody corpse. We likely would have
used a photo of him being arrested,
though, even if he appeared to be
injured.
Why wasn't his photo larger? The
quality of a mug shot from the sher-
iff's office isn't very good, so the photo
couldn't have been made any larger
without distorting it.
Don't you knowyou'll give ideas to
others? We think it's highly unlikely
this story or photo will inspire a copy-
cat. The suspect is in a world of trou-
ble and isn't going to benefit in any


way from our having exposed him,
and anyone who sees him as a role
model is already far down the wrong
road.
What do I tell my child? Use this as
a teachable moment to bring home
several lessons: that there are people
in the world who think the answer to
any problem is violence; that dogs
can be dangerous, even to people well
equipped to protect themselves; and
that sometimes it's necessary to take a
life to save one.
There's also an unstated question
to be addressed: The fact that so
many people mentioned in their let-
ter that they are animal lovers seemed
to imply they think that we're not. No-
thing could be farther from the truth.
While we don't think humans and
dogs are equals, we deplore the sus-
pect's decision to sacrifice his dogs in
a vain attempt to avoid answering for
his crimes. We don't know whether
telling the story of this event, with a
photo, will deter anyone from com-
mitting a similar crime, but we think
that shining more light, not less, on
the people who consider themselves
unbound by society's rules would
make this a better world ... and a bet-
ter community.


Flashback


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Saturday we ran a picture of
two dogs that had been killed
by aVenice police officer in the
line of duty. It was a poignant
picture and a gripping story. If
you did not read the story, the
picture and headline were
even more dramatic than it
was.
Before 6 a.m. Saturday, I ran
into the policeman who had to
kill the dogs but I didn't know
he was the officer involved.
Having not read the story and
only seen the picture, I embar-
rassed myself by making a
crack about cruelty to dogs.
The police officer rightly so
saw no humor in my com-
ments. After I pulled my foot
out of my mouth and apolo-
gized, he gave me a descrip-
tion of what happened.
He was at the home of a sus-
pected domestic abuser when
the dogs were let out. They cir-
cled him, and efforts to get
them called off or shoo them
off were to no avail. They
attacked him. Finally, as it was
evident they were trying to
harm him, he killed one, and
when the other one did not
then back off, he killed it as it
attacked.
The news department care-
fully went over whether to run
the picture, weighing closely
whether it helped to get an
important story across versus
sensitivity to those who no
matter do not want to see ani-
mals like this no matter the
reason for their deaths. It was a
tough call.
This is the very difficult bal-
ancing act newspapers often
find themselves involved in.
Often we don't run the photo.
Some people think we just
run things like that for for the
shock value for newspaper
sales and that just isn't the
case. If we were out to shock
you, our paper would be a
whole lot different than the
one you have enjoyed over the
years. The editorial on this
page explains much better the
considerations that go into
making such a decision.
Our readers comments are
all valid points and we have
talked about them. Being sen-
sitive is an important part of


the news job and it's consid-
ered here.
As we all have found out in
similar cases, reactions to dead
animals are sometimes more
angry than to dead humans,
maybe because we have
become more desensitized to
seeing human tragedy.
Something seems wrong with
this to me but it does not
lessen the concern about sen-
sitivity. Our staff is better
because of your feedback.
I hope this story conveyed a
message that you have to be
careful around animals. Be
cautious how you approach
animals until you know them.
Of course, none of this
would have happened had the
accused's dogs been under
control. In this case the he
appeared to want the officers
harmed.
Only 1 percent of dogs, or
less, are likely to be dangerous
but you never know which
dogs those are. When walking
alone you need a plan how to
deal with a stray or a pack.
Having been attacked by
two dogs that looked very
much like these two, I can tell
you it is a very frightening situ-
ation. I thought I was going to
be killed.
I was jogging at 4:30 in the
morning when I was attacked
and bitten. Luckily, the owner
called them off before they
went further. I did end up in
court as these dogs had done
other vicious things, including
kill other pets.
While this picture shocked
some, I hope it helped remind
people to be careful around
animals, and to remember
that animals can be trained to
hurt people.


By's Crack: Natural child-
birth is when no drugs are
taken. All the mother needs
is something to grip with
her hands like her hus-
band's throat.



Sadly, Venice has been
selected as one of the worst
beaches in America; unfortu-
nately, it made national TV.
Likely this was because of the
closed beaches around
Sharky's last year.
I have not read much about
how we are combatting this
problem but hope that is hap-
pening. I assume all the coun-
cil members living in that
south island area, like in Gold-
en Beach, who have pushed to
contain the airport, might get

Needs help with varmints

Shoo. Your column reaches so many people and has been so
helpful to so many people, so I wonder if there is somebody out
there who could tell me of a repellent that I could use against rac-
coons. I have a problem with my neighbor. The house has been
vacant for seven months. It's overgrown and there is a family of
raccoons, and now there are wild cats over there. They seem to
use my yard to cross and they go out in the daylight. They say
when they go out at night, they're sick. Is there something out
there that I could buy to use as a repellent so they wouldn't come
across my property? Maybe someone who reads your column can
tell me something I could buy.


Westward ho. The hospital
employee west parking lot cer-
tainly needs some attention. I
would assume that would be
under the Venice code enforce-
ment staff, since we're hearing
about how the director of code
enforcements is such a stickler
on his duties. Why is the hospi-
tal employee parking lot
directly west of the hospital
allowed to look the way it
does? There's been no mainte-
nance at all. The weeds are
knee-high and lots of clutter
surrounds the area. The new
parking lot directly north of the
hospital seems to get all the
attention. Why not take an
hour a week and police that
area? It certainly is a disgrace.
Last straw. Voters of
America are finding out the
hard way that elections have
consequences. Ask yourselves,
Venice, did I vote for this? Well,
you did, and Venice and
America are being ruined. The
common threads are arro-
gance, elitism and self-service
fostered by politicians who dis-
connect and disregard the best
interests of the citizens, we the
people. The similarities are:
vast sums of funds wasted,
hostility to business and blind
allegiance to the hoax of man-


Let 'em

made global warming. We the
people have the common
sense to identify those respon-
sible and they shall pay for
their misdeeds at reelection
time. If the FAA brings suit
against the city, it would be the
straw that breaks the camel's
back and at that point there
should be a recall election.
Unintended consequences.
I absolutely would support a
recall of certain members of
the city council. Enough, is
enough. When we elected


these people to represent us,
this was not what we were led
to believe was going to hap-
pen. All we were concerned
about was people building
large buildings within the city
that would spoil the city's cur-
rent ambiance. We never in
our wildest dreams thought we
were going to get involved in
all these legal battles and the
all-consuming preoccupation
this city council has with mar-
ginalizing our beautiful little
airport. If I could sign a peti-
tion tomorrow to recall certain
members of city council, I
would do it in a heartbeat.
Footing the bill. I'm retired.
I wonder if other Venice
retirees realize that we're going
to have to foot the bill for all
the shenanigans at city hall. As
businesses close or downsize,
that means they pay less in
taxes. Their employees who
are laid off lose their homes,
have to go back up North and
live with their parents. They
pay less in taxes. So who's left
to pay all these legal bills and
all the other expenses the new
council is giving us? It's going
to be us retired people.
Hopefully, we're able to figure
that out.
Second terms. Regarding
your question about the recall
for city council: I can't wait to
vote for Ernie, Sue and Ed in
next November's election.
When they run, it's on to an-
other 70 percent vote because
they did exactly what they said
they would do. Regarding Greg
Giles' interview of Andrea Mo-
gensen, I'm not very sympa-
thetic that she didn't get paid for
her work. I expect Judge Ben-
nett will agree that when you
take a pro bono case and you
don't get paid, you got paid
exactly what you agreed to.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Readers decry dogs photo

Editor:
When I picked up the your Sunday edition of the Gondolier
Sun to purchase I saw the horrible picture you printed on the
front page of dogs that had been shot by police during an arrest.
I was sickened and horrified.
I can't believe you would have the audacity to print such a
graphic photo. I have decided I will never purchase your paper
again. Once again you have showed poor taste in the things you
publish in your paper.
Really, that was in such bad taste I could not believe that you
would print that photo. Shame on you, Gondolier Sun. I am sure
I will not be the only reader who feels this way.

Editor:
I and a lot of my friends
were absolutely stunned by
Saturday's edition of the Gon-
dolier Sun. Was it really neces-
sary to cover on the front page,
with a picture, no less, the
shooting of two dogs? To say
the least, I was totally shocked
and, being an animal lover,
more than a little disturbed.
I am not upset with the
police, as they were just pro-
tecting themselves. Had they
have found it necessary to
shoot Mr. Siringer, would they
have taken a picture of his
corpse and put it on the front
page? I think not. I'm surprised
that your photographer didn't
take a close up of the poor
dogs, so we could see all the
blood.
If you had to publish a pic-
ture of the dogs, why didn't you
put it in the Our Town section?
The photography is so bad in
that section, we couldn't have
made out what it was, lying on
the grass, and it wouldn't have
been front page.

o print a


photo this past Sunday of two
dogs killed by police officers
was in poor taste. The headline
was sufficient to warn readers
that the story would not have a
happy ending. I have no issue
with the policeman's actions,
but do not think that the photo
was necessary.
Those who truly love ani-
mals as I do will find it difficult
to put this picture out of their
minds.
On another note, although
it saddens me that these dogs
lives' ended violently, it was
probably a blessing in disguise.
It appears that they had been
trained to fight or attack,
which could have resulted in
prolonged pain and misery fol-
lowed by violent deaths.

had been the one shot? I felt
like I was looking at one of

the grocery store checkout.
As you can tell, I am an ani-

the animals were shot. My hus-

What should the next great invention be?


DEREK DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST COLUMNIST


In a closet at home, we
still have the big, brown
Encyclopedia Britanni-
cas that we bought in the
1970s on the installment
plan so our children


wouldn't be deprived.
The same amount of
cash would have bought
us a nice used car.
To get a complete an-
swer from the Britanni-
cas, you had to look in six
different volumes, so you
had to spread the books
all around the room and
look up part of the an-
swer on page 352 of vol-
ume Bac-Cru. And the
next part of the answer
would be on page 278 in
volume Gre-Hom.
Now you can get all of
that for free. Anything I
want an answer to, I can
Google it on my cell phone
and get five answers.


500,000 answers. 5 million
answers. It's amazing.
It makes me wonder
- what should we invent
next? Here are a few
ideas:
How about a chip in
your body that has your
full medical history? Not
just your blood checks for
the past 15 years or the
fact that you have an arti-
ficial leg, but also all the
stuff that's going on right
now, that you don't even
know yet. So if there is an
emergency, or you're just
taking a trip to the dentist,
experts have all the infor-
mation they need, right at
their fingertips.


VEDDER from Page8A


blamed for the problem.
Obviously that is a joke.
But it is unfortunate for
this exposure because
overall we really have
nice beaches.

John and Pam Holic
brought me many days'
worth of the Daily Sitka
Sentinel from Alaska,
where they have relatives
and own property. This
paper had very interest-
ing tide charts. I forgot
how big the tide swings
were in Alaska.

Today's Ism: How
come you never hear
father-in-law jokes?

State College of Flor-
ida, formerly Manatee
Community College, had
the second-most growth
this year of all communi-
ty colleges in the state,
with a 14-percent gain. It
is now the fifth-largest
college with around
12,000 students expected
this fall. The average gain
was 3.9 percent state-
wide.
I assume some of the
growth comes from how
hard our coastal commu-
nities were hit by layoffs
and the real estate bust,
and equates to people
getting training for new


professions. Certainly
the new four-year de-
grees will help.

Blood donation at the
hospital was planned for
this Friday but has been
moved to Sept. 4. Give
and you'll receive bribes
like food and giveaways.

The cafe is closed at
the Venice Art Center but


will reopen once it has
found a new vendor,
which should not be too
far away.

in this paper


How about clothes that
are self-aware? Instead of
saying, "Oh, I forgot to
bring my sweater into the
movie theater," your shirt
would just thicken to keep
you warm. Or if you're on a
long hike, your hat would
become more reflective as
needed.
For the inventive biol-
ogists of the world, here's
an idea: one plant that
would be a self-con-
tained, balanced meal -
all the vitamin C of an
orange, all the potassium
of a banana, all the pro-
tein of a bean and so on.


Here's a brain chip the
world really needs: an
early warning system for
parents that says, "I know
what you're about to do
to your kid, and it's a real-
ly bad idea." It could
even suggest a better
plan that would cause
less collateral damage.
Come to think of it, we
used to have such a thing
when I was growing up
- it was called "Grand-
ma." But most people
don't have one in their
house anymore.
By the way, if you
know any newspaper


publishers, tell them I
want a newspaper whose
font size adjusts to suit
my needs.
Now it's your turn.
First, if one of these great
ideas has already been
invented, let me know.
And if you have an inven-
tion you've been patient-
ly awaiting, let me know
that too, by sending an e-
mail to derekdr@sun-
herald.com. I look for-
ward to hearing your
ideas.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL



Venice loaded with talent

S- -. BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR _ _ _


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Mangrove snappers
are cooperating

It's hot and sticky outside
with thunderstorms in the
afternoon or early evening.
These are two things I know.
One other thing is inshore
fishing early or late in
August should allow you to
bring home a few keeper
mangrove snappers.
I took a walk on the
Venice Jetty the other
evening and they were
catching all kinds of fish,
such as keeper snappers
and a bunch of catch-and-
release snook.
Something disgusting hap-
pened. A fisherman (I use
that term very loosely)
caught a 29-30 inch snook.
He must have been thinking
about keeping this beauti-
ful female snook, and it was
obvious she was a female as
her stomach was loaded
with roe.
I was standing behind
him and we made eye con-
tact. I merely shook my
head "no" and he decided to
throw her back. He went to
the edge of the water and
instead of easing her harm-
lessly into the water, he
heaved her high in the air.
Who knows if the snook
survived. By the way, snook
out are of season until Sept.
1.
One fisherman was using
my "Tuffies" and doing
quite well with these
processed greenbacks. He
told me he only needed one
more keeper to have his
limit.
My friend Bubba was
fishing on the pier and saw
a gigantic redfish swim-
ming in the shallow water.
He tried everything, but the
red just wasn't interested.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to
say goodbye until next
week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at

Venice concluded the regu-
lar season unbeaten last year
for the first time since 2000 and
set numerous records both
offensively and defensively.
It's a lot to live up to this year.
Venice head coach John
Peacock doesn't see it this way.
The third-year head coach
thinks this year's team is better
and told a crowd of more than 70
during a Venice High Football
Fans Club luncheon on Saturday
at Outback Steakhouse inVenice.
"I really feel this year we are
going to be better than last year
and I really feel the product on
the field this year as far as the
talent level at our high school is
the best I've seen," Peacock
said during his 25-minute talk.
"I've been here 11 years and
won a state championship and
we've played in three regional
championships. I think by far
this team has the most talent,
bar none, compared to any
team we have had."
Peacock also knows it's hard
to replace Kent State signee Dri
Archer, who rushed for 1,482
yards on 145 carries in 8 1/2
games with 17 TDs and also
caught 21 passes for 402 yards.

TALENT from Page 10A

"I say this team is a
lot better than last year
minus Dri Archer,"
Peacock said. "That is a
big void to fill is Dri
Archer. Not that the
other kids are not hard
to fill but Dri Archer is a
rare type of football
player that doesn't come
around all the time. You
are talking about the
second-fastest person
in the entire state."
Peacock also knows
talent doesn't always win
games.
"It doesn't always
equate to wins but talent-
wise we are a very talent-
ed football team," he
said. "We probably have
eight Division I football
players on team. We
haven't had eight Divi-
sion I football players in
the last 11 years."
Two players quar-
terback Trey Burton
and defensive end Bran-
don Wilkinson have
already committed to
Division I University of
Florida and University of
South Florida. Other
potential Division I play-
ers include seniors, 6-
foot-3, 215 pound tight
end Beckett Wales, line-
man Brian O'Leary,
running back/defensive
back Justin Grant, wide
receiver Bo Ceravolo, a
transfer from Cardinal
Mooney, junior defen-
sive end Clay Burton and
sophomore defensive
lineman Omari Phillips,
a 6-foot-6, 270 pound
transfer from University
Christian in Jacksonville.
Peacock said the
offensive line won't be
as big as it was last year
but "will be a lot more
athletic and a little
tougher up front."
Venice's offense set a
school record by scoring
385 points during the
regular season.
The Indians, who
advanced to the regional
semifinals and finished
with a 11-1 record, return
Burton, who rushed for
1,186 yards and scored
30 touchdowns. He also
threw for 1,686 yards
with 13 TDs.
"He's got a lot better
this summer," Peacock
said. "He is going to be a
force to be reckoned
with. He is a lot faster, a
lot bigger and stronger."
Also back are O'Leary,
Dino Fanti, Wales, who
caught 20 passes for 277
yards; wide receivers
Josh Boyle, who had 12
catches for 255 yards,
and Evan Boone.
In the backfield this
year is Grant, who rushed
for 167 yards on 10 car-
ries in one half of the
Spring Classic against
Naples.

Peacock talked about

selves.
"One thing about
Venice we are going to
work our kids harder

said. "I think every

which included video shots of most every-
thing Roman, including what might have
been clips from the film "Roman Holiday."
Community Center manager Dorian Mattox and her assistant, Renee
Krause, set up the great hall for 650 revelers.
There was even a bouncer, Franklyn Bryant, who is a regular at all these
parties.
"We've never had a problem," he said.
"This is a great place for their parties," Mattox said. "We had the Forgotten
Prom and many other (WSRZ) 107 parties here."
Food was donated by Cosimo's Brick Oven with the $5 dinner cost going


Roman centurians descended on Venice Saturday night.
They came in limos, SUVs and, in one case, a chariot.
The occasion was the WSRZ Toga Party featuring The Morning Crew, David Jones
and Christina Crane, at the Venice Community Center.
Jones, a Venice High School grad, was at the helm of the chariot, and Crane, a
Venetian for the night, was carried in by two handsome Roman slaves, as their ladies-
in-waiting walked ahead casting rose petals over the path.
As the minions cheered and hoisted drinks, Jones and Crane made their way to the
stage to officially begin the festivities.
Angie Pollock of Venice wore a "kissing toga," which featured red lips all over the
sheet "borrowed" from her daughter's bed for the occasion.
Tommi Stone of Nokomis had one of the more lavish outfits.
"This is my shower curtain," she said, pointing to one layer sand-
wiched between some lace "curtains" and other assorted fabrics
held together with various ropes, chains and artificial flowers.
She said it was her first time at a Morning Crew event, but
she had no problem fitting into the Roman melee.
Deurita Wieczorek, a sea turtle volunteer for some 20
II years with Coastal Wildlife Club, is also a longtime Jones and
Crane partygoer. Attired in a purple toga with gold cord belt,
she was the winner of the What's Under the Toga? contest. She
was at the party with Jackie Brown, a music teacher at
Ephiphany Cathedral School.
"I come to as many (parties) as they have," Brown said.

More parties
Bringing their own golden chalices, Ed Krehl, Christy Brunt and
Tom Krehl came from North Port. Brian and Suzanne Olsen came
from Bradenton.
Mark and Joyce Skukowski arrived in a stretch limousine.
Toga-clad revelers continued to arrive, eventually filling the dance
floor as the party continued until 11 p.m.
Judy Cope of Venice left with the biggest prize a two-night stay
at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa, plus a gift basket
of other items.
"Flash Hengel," another part of the Morning Crew weekdays, was
in charge of the music and special effects,

straight to the American Red Cross.
Party admission was $10. There was a
cash bar.
Known for weekly and quarterly par-
ties, plus an annual cruise for fans, the
WSRZ Morning Crew holds weekly
dance parties that rotate from place to


place around the Sun Coast. But for the
big parties, which are held at least four
times a year, the Venice Community
Center is the place of choice. Mattox
said they just signed a contract with
Clear Channel, WSRZ's owner, for more
parties here next year.

Mental health group affiliates with international organization


FROM VISION PR
AND MARKETING


Sunshine From Dark-
ness, a Sarasota-based
nonprofit whose mission
is to raise awareness of
mental illness and raise
funds for research, has
affiliated with the Inter-
national Mental Health
Research Organization. It
is also affiliated with
many senior directors of
the National Association
for Research on Schiz-
ophrenia and Depres-
sion, the national organ-
ization with which Sun-
shine From Darkness
had been previously affil-
iated.
"NARSAD continues
to do excellent work and


will continue to do so.
However, the direction
and scope of IMHRO is
more in line with our
vision for mental illness
research and the need to
address stigma," said Rob-
ert Peterson, co-founder
with his wife, Lee, of SFD.
"Funds raised by Sunshine
From Darkness will be
directed to IMHRO start-
ing this calendar year."
After 11 years as
NARSAD Florida, the vol-
unteer-driven organiza-
tion, SFD, was formed in
August 2008. By collabo-
rating with IMHRO, the
Petersons think they can
ensure that funds raised
by SFD will have the
greatest impact on find-
ing the most effective


treatments for the entire
span of mental health
disorders.
IMHRO has raised $87
million to date and has
funded mental health
research projects and sci-
entists who have made
breakthroughs that have
helped thousands of pa-
tients worldwide. Because
of IMHRO's significant
strides, groups, such as
the National Institute for
Mental Health, have giv-
en them follow-on grants
to expand their research,
totaling $44 million to date.
Through this cooperation
between the private and
public sectors, IMHRO's
fundraising model multi-
plies research funding and
speeds the search for


cures.
IMHRO's Scientific
Advisory Board compris-
es nine of the world's top
neuroscientists. Program
managers may apply for
a grant in the areas of schiz-
ophrenia, depression and
bipolar research. The SAB
helps SFD choose the most
promising programs to
fund. When discoveries are
made, these scientists
share their results with the
research community.
With regard to stigma,
IMHRO is developing a
national ad campaign
with award-winning act-
ress Glenn Close. The
campaign will bring at-
tention to the devastat-
ing impact of mental ill-


ness. Brain diseases are
the leading cause of dis-
ability worldwide. Major
mental illness afflicts 20
percent of the world's
population, or 57 million
people in the United
States alone. The cost in
suffering is incalculable;
what can be tallied is the
toll in treatment cost, lost
productivity and prison
housing: more than $300
billion per year in the
U.S. Despite these facts,
brain disorders are the
most underfunded disor-
ders in the U.S. today.
For more than 11
years of raising funds and
awareness as NARSAD
Florida, from 1997-2008,
and now as SFD, more


than $4.25 million has
been raised.
The January 2009
Mental Health Research
Symposium, Journey to
Wellness, drew a record
crowd of 1,735 attendees,
filling the Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall. The
Annual Gala the follow-
ing day was a success
with Luminary Award-
winner Patty Duke. An
equally inspiring week-
end is planned for Jan. 9
and 10, 2010. The Lumin-
ary Award recipient will
be Gary Foster, producer
of the film "The Soloist,"
portraying a talented mu-
sician's battle with schiz-
ophrenia and homeless-
ness.

While numerous studies have

involving the natural pigments found in
plants (called carotenoids) may have
discovered the reason why. The four-year
study looked at changes in bone mineral
density at two areas of the hip and lumbar
spine in hundreds of men and women
(average age of 75 years). Researchers found
that carotenoids (including alpha-carotene,

Name a continuation of changes when the
Legislature redesignated the Community
College System as The Florida College
System


FROM FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
EDUCATION


The Department of
Education's Division of
Community Colleges re-
cently got a new name to
go with its continuing
mission to provide Flor-
idians with open access
to quality higher educa-
tion and retraining op-
portunities.
The 2009 Florida Col-
lege System Bill (Senate
Bill 2682), signed by Gov.
Crist last month, re-
names the division as the
Division of Florida Col-


leges.
"Florida's community
colleges have a long-
standing history of excel-
lence, anchored by the
more than 800,000 stu-
dents they serve each
year," said Education
Commissioner Dr. Eric J.
Smith.
"The Division of Flor-
ida Colleges is proud to
support them as they
work to stimulate our
economy through a broad
spectrum of high need,
high demand career edu-
cation programs."
The new name is a
continuation of changes


that began in 2008 when
the Legislature redesig-
nated the Community
College System as The
Florida College System.
The system includes all
public institutions known
as community colleges,
junior colleges, colleges
and state colleges under
the governance of the
state Board of Education.
The 2009 Florida Col-
lege System Bill, in addi-
tion to the 2008 legisla-
tive changes, also autho-
rized name changes for
many of Florida's 28
community colleges. For

Integrative medicine: Red yeast targets cholesterol


BY DRS. KAY JUDGE AND
MAXINE BARISH-WREDEN
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS

Millions in the United States
take medications called statins
to lower blood cholesterol.
These meds, including Lipitor,
Zocor and Mevacor, have
made a huge difference for
people with high cholesterol
levels, especially those with
cardiovascular disease or who
are at risk of heart attack and
stroke.
However, side effects, such
as muscle aches, are common
(as high as 10 percent) with
these drugs. Some alternative
practitioners recommend
using co-enzyme Q10 to pre-
vent this type of muscle pain,


but a recent review showed no
clear benefit from this supple-
ment.
One popular alternative
medicine product for high
cholesterol is red yeast rice, a
dietary supplement that has
been used in China for cen-
turies. RYR contains a chemi-
cal, monacolin-K, that is
identical to the active ingre-
dient in the prescription
statin Mevacor (lovastatin).
And RYR does not seem to
cause the side effects.
A new study reported in the
Annals of Internal Medicine
has shown that RYR may be a
safe alternative for people who
have been intolerant of statins.
In this study, 62 patients who
had stopped taking at least one


statin drug because of muscle
pain were randomized to
receive either red yeast rice
or a placebo twice daily for 24
weeks. All patients were
encouraged to eat a healthy
diet, exercise and reduce
stress, all of which can also
lower blood cholesterol. The
patients receiving RYR got the
equivalent of about 6 mg of
lovastatin daily; by the end of
the study, they had dropped
their total cholesterol by about
15 percent and their LDL cho-
lesterol by about 21 percent,
compared with 5 percent to 9
percent in the placebo group.
And muscle pain was uncom-
mon in this study.
It is not known why RYR
may be better tolerated than


prescription meds. RYR con-
tains a number of plant chem-
icals that may be beneficial in
lowering cholesterol without
causing side effects. Also, this
study may not have been long
enough to detect side effects of
RYR.
Are there downsides to
taking RYR? Yes. RYR can be
contaminated with a kidney
toxin known as citrinin. We
recommend using only RYR
products that have been eval-
uated by independent testing
labs. RYR has also been
reported to cause muscle
pain and liver problems just
like statin meds, though it
seems that side effects from
RYR are rare. Still, we recom-
mend that you be monitored


by your physician should you
choose to take RYR.
And RYR has not been com-
pared with a statin med in a
medical study this would
give us a direct comparison.
Until it is, we suggest lifestyle
changes: a low-fat, high-fiber
diet and exercise to reduce
your cholesterol.

License plate monies to help reduce feral cat population


FROM THE VENICE
CAT COALITION


A grant allocation is bring-
ing good news to those who
run cat and dog spay/neuter
programs in the southern areas
of Sarasota County.
The Key West Cat Society-
Venice Cat Coalition and St.
Francis Animal Rescue have
received a $15,000 grant from
the Florida Animal Friend Fund.
This is the money that is donat-
ed when a motorist purchases a
FAF license plate promoting
spay/neuter for cats and dogs.
More information about FAF is
available on the Web site
www.floridaanimalfriend.org.
Plates can be purchased online
or at the license tag office in the
county's R.L. Anderson Admin-
istration Center, 4000 South
Tamiami Trail, Venice.
The Key West Cat Society and
its partners in the Venice Cat
Coalition, which include The
Cat House and Feral Friends,
are responsible for running the
operational aspects of the pro-
ject, while St. Francis serves as

the fiscal partner and will pro-
vide rabies vaccines for the cats.
The KWCS-VCC already
traps approximately 50-60 free-
roaming cats per month for
spay/neuter using surgeries
paid for by donations, vouchers
from St. Francis and free clinics
sponsored by other animal res-
cue groups in Sarasota. The
grant will greatly expand this
project and will involve certi-
fied expert trappers, new trap-
pers and the general public. An


important aspect of this project
is to expand trap-neuter-return
to places like Venice, Engle-
wood, North Port, Port Char-
lotte and Punta Gorda that are
lacking in such programs.
"We hope to demonstrate to
shelters, animal control officers
and other rescue groups in the
south part of the county that
TNR works and is the only sen-
sible solution for cat overpopu-
lation problems," said Theresa
Foley, head of KWCS-VCC. "We


believe the county is getting on
board with TNR, which is a
major change in its attitude
over the years. Combined with
this important grant, there is
going to be a massive change in
store for cats living in our
neighborhoods."
The VCC promotes TNR at
the Farmers Market in down-
town Venice each Saturday, and
its volunteers are there to
answer questions and provide
help for the free-roaming cats
of Venice. The license plate
program will be part of their
weekly educational effort.
Mary Donohue, former
president of St. Francis who is a
strong no-kill advocate and co-
authored the proposal for this
new program, said, "This pro-
gram will give our community
a chance to lead and promote
the no-kill initiative, whereby
euthanasia is no longer prac-
ticed on any animal except
those suffering from terminal
illness. TNR and spay/neuter
are the keys to ending the use
of euthanasia for other rea-
sons, such as lack of space in


shelters. Progressive groups all
over the country are ending the
use of trap-and-kill to control
cat populations, and I'm confi-
dent we can make the same
changes here."
TNR is a humane way to
help control the population of
free-roaming cats. Almost
70,000 kittens and puppies are
born each day, and more than
3.5 million unwanted pets are
euthanized each year in the
United States. By spaying just
one female and neutering just
one male, we can prevent
thousands of unwanted births.
This grant will provide the
funds to spay/neuter a mini-
mum of 400 free-roaming cats
during the next year. More
information will be provided
about this program as it
becomes available.
To donate to the spay/
neuter effort, go to the Web
site for KWCS and VCC at

Gov. Crist promotes flexible fuel vehicles


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT
OF AGRICULTURE AND
CONSUMER SERVICES

A national consumer awareness
campaign aimed at owners of flexible
fuel vehicles, FFVs, was officially
launched July 29 at the Farm-to-Fuel
Summit. The project is a cooperative
effort between key Florida state gov-
ernment interests, gasoline/E85 dis-
tributors, ethanol companies and sev-
eral nonprofit environmental and
energy advocacy groups.
The Florida Farm-to-Fuel Summit
provided the forum for Charles
Bronson, Florida Commissioner of
Agriculture and Consumer Services,
to announce that the state would be
taking a proactive role aimed at
increasing the use of higher blends of
renewable biofuels, like ethanol, in
FlexFuel Vehicles.
"Our state has developed a com-
prehensive strategy to become more


energy independent with clean, sus-
tainable, and affordable fuel sources,"
said Gov. Crist. "Today's announce-
ment is one more step that our state
can take in the effort to become better
stewards of our natural resources."
"We can stimulate the state econo-
my and create new biotech jobs sim-
ply by using more ethanol. Several
advanced biofuel projects in our state
will use our abundant renewable bio-
mass resources, waste from our agri-
culture processing plants, and trash
from our cities. There are hundreds of
millions of dollars that are being
invested in Florida for these second-
generation ethanol plants, and we
need to develop the market by edu-
cating consumers now," said Bronson.
There are more than 8 million FFV
owners in the United States and
500,000 in Florida. Hundreds of auto
dealers in the state will be selling mil-
lions more FFVs in the next few years.
Project organizers said the program


will be duplicated in states across the
U.S. and can play a key role in meet-
ing national renewable fuel use
requirements.
"The FFV Awareness driver educa-
tion project is designed to locate and
encourage drivers of FFVs to try high-
er blends of ethanol when they are
available. This will help Florida meet
its goals of reducing the cost of and
reliance on imported oil, improving
air quality, and creating economic
development opportunities, all while
reducing greenhouse gases. This is a
win-win-win for Florida drivers, the
state government and the nation,"
said Douglas A. Durante, director of
the Clean Fuels Foundation.
There are currently 30 E85 stations
in the state, with a majority of them
located in the South Florida market.
"Ethanol is the only renewable
alternative fuel available today that is
noticeably reducing our dependence
on imported oil," said Renewable


Fuels Association President Bob
Dinneen.
"Americans are willing to support a
domestically-produced, renewable
fuel over imported oil if they know
where to buy it and if they can use it.
Making consumers aware of their
fueling options puts the drive for
energy independence in their capable
hands. By partnering with the indus-
try, the state of Florida is leading by
example."
The Clean Fuels Foundation and
the FlexFuel Vehicle Club of America
are the project organizers in coopera-
tion with the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The lead sponsor for the pilot project
is the Renewable Fuels Association.
Other project supporters include
General Motors, Verenium, Protec
Fuel Management, Urbieta Oil,
Florida Biofuels Association and the
USDA Office of Energy Policy and
New Uses.

Survivors of domestic violence eligible for asylum in the U.S.


FROM THE GOOD
NEWS AGENCY


With a court filing in the case of
a woman from Mexico seeking
asylum in the United States, the
Obama administration has sig-
naled a shift in immigration law to
make it possible for female sur-
vivors of severe domestic and sex-
ual abuse to seek and obtain asy-
lum.
In a marked departure from the
Bush administration position, the
new policy holds that battered
women do meet the standard of
membership in a "persecuted
group." This change in categoriza-
tion by the Obama administration
recognizes that domestic abuse is
not simply a private or family mat-


ter. Rather, it represents a violation
of women's human rights and
merits consideration in asylum
cases.
MADRE welcomes this opening
in U.S. immigration law, calling for
the full realization and implemen-
tation of this important policy
shift. MADRE is an international
women's human rights organiza-
tion that works in partnership with
community-based women's orga-
nizations worldwide to address
issues of health and reproductive
rights, economic development,
education, and other human rights.
For more information about
MADRE, go to www.madre.org.
The Good News Agency carries
positive and constructive news
from all over the world relating to


voluntary work, the work of the
United Nations, non-governmen-
tal organizations and institutions
engaged in improving the quality
of life. It is distributed free of
charge through the Internet to
8,000 media and editorial journal-
ists in 49 countries and to 2,800
NGOs and 500 high schools, col-
leges and universities.
The agency is an all-volunteer
service of Associazione Culturale
dei Triangoli e della BuonaVolonta
Mondiale, a registered educational
charity chartered in Italy in 1979.
The association operates for the
development of consciousness
and promotes a culture of peace in
the global village perspective
based on unity in diversity and on
sharing.

Camper Caylee Lombardi speaks to a group of visi-

looks on.


In the Smart Moves Fun Club room at the Boys & Girls Club, children 6 to 8 years old learn to make appropriate life
choices while having fun.



It takes a village to raise a child


MARTY DOVER
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Perhaps nowhere in Ven-
ice is the community's con-
tribution to improving chil-
dren's lives more evident
than at the Robert and Joan
Lee Boys & Girls Club.
Located on a large campus
at 920 Gulf Coast Blvd., the
facility is a hub of activity for
some 550 boys and girls ages
6 to 18 in the summer pro-
gram, and 375 during the
school year for after-school
care.
It is more than a safe
haven for children of working
parents. It is a fun, safe place
where children from all cir-
cumstances can realize their
potential under the guidance
of positive adult mentors,
who must pass FBI clearance.
Many volunteers, as well
as the Unit Director Paul
Keim, began attending the


club as children. There are
scholarships available for
families who cannot afford
the fee.
A group of local women
who recently toured the
facility were amazed by the
range of activities and size
of the building. There are
rooms for study, computers,
videos, table games, a gym,
a workout room and age-
appropriate classrooms as
well as the dining room and
kitchen. Under the guid-
ance of chef James Pressley,
all meals are prepared from
scratch by the children.
"These kids have been
showing me tremendous
potential," Pressley said.
J. Mack Reid, president
and CEO of Boys & Girls
Club of Sarasota County,
said, "We're here for all chil-
dren, but especially those
that need us the most."
To do that, the club needs
money and volunteers.
"The community has been
very supportive," Reid said,
"but our biggest goal is to pay
off the mortgage so that
money can go directly toward
services for the children."
For information about
the club, how to help or to
schedule a tour, call Frances
Levinson at 366-3911, ext. 126,
or go to boysandgirlsclubs.

A rumble at
Venice Theatre
The Jets and the Sharks
had a rumble on stage at the
Venice Theatre's third annual
Summer Stock presentation
of "West Side Story" and the
winners were the patrons
lucky enough to get a ticket.
The Summer Stock cast of
college and high school students
is part of the Venice Theatre
Education and Outreach pro-
gram headed by Sandy Davis-
son. The students spend the
summer learning all phases of
staging a full-scale music pro-
duction, from building sets to
costume design, publicity,
acting, singing and dancing.
They learned well. Direc-
tor and choreographer Brad
Wages promised the audi-
ence a professional perfor-
mance and they got it. The
set, costumes and choreogra-
phy could not have been bet-
ter and the cast completely
captured the audience. There
was a lot of sniffing and nose-
blowing at the sad ending.
Local teen phenom Emily
Mounce brought her lovely
voice to the lead part of Maria.
Her ill-fated lover, Tony, was
played by Kyle Luckett, a col-
lege student from Montana
who came to Venice because
of the theater opportunities
here. That is another endorse-
ment of the quality of the arts


in Venice and how far our rep-
utation has traveled.
Thanks for
the memories ...
Today is my last Around
Town column.
For 20 weeks I have had
the honor of writing this col-
umn for Fran Valencic while
she recuperated from surgery.
I am happy to report that Fran
is now ready to get back to
work, and it is time for me to
ride off into the sunset.
This has been a marvelous
opportunity to meet many of
the people who make Venice a
special place in the arts,
social services, business, gov-
ernment, education and more.
I am overwhelmed by the gen-
erosity of Venetians and their
invaluable contributions in
time, effort and funds to this
community, as well as their
capacity to have a good time.
Thank you, Fran and the
Gondolier Sun management,
for entrusting the column to
me. I loved working once
again with Gondolier Sun staff,
and I thank them for their help
and support. Although the
photos and writing were
mine, it was Kurt Ludke who
designed the page layouts and
he deserves a big thank-you.
Fran, get out there and
have fun. You are an inspira-
tion to all of us.


J. Mack Reid, president and CEO of
Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota County,
introduces Morgan Sweeney, one of two
Venice campers who spent a week at the
club in Greeley, Colo., in an exchange
program.


Teen of the Year Shane Sethi is wearing
his chef's hat while helping to prepare
lunch in the Boys & Girls Club kitchen.
He said, "(The club) has given me initia-
tives." He plans to study engineering at
Florida Southern University in Lakeland
starting this fall.

What were they
thinking?
For the John and Mable
Ringling Museum of Art to
lose its director JohnWeten-
hall during such dire economic
times is something akin to tossing
the captain overboard as a storm
approaches.
Wetenhall saved a museum
crumbling from neglect and the
irresponsible financial manage-
ment of state overseers who let
John Ringling's $1.5 million
endowment sit idle during the
greatest economic boom this
country has ever seen.
In roughly eight years, Weten-
hall created an endowment worth
close to $60 million, brought in
other millions and oversaw
construction and renovation that
has very nearly made the muse-
um self-sufficient.
Ranked as the 20th most
valuable museum in America
and the largest university-
owned museum, the Ringling
and its other FSU-run partner,
the Asolo Repertory Company
and its conservatory may be that
university's two most valuable
assets, adding to the prestige of
both the city and the university.
Not that long ago the Asolo
might have been taken to
Tallahassee, where it would
surely have declined in prestige
in a city known for politics but
not for the arts.
While no one can physically
remove the Ringling complex
from Sarasota, its neglect is a
very real danger. I remember a
time of broken windows and
leaking roofs not that long ago.
Under Wetenhall, that changed
and Floridians today own a
unique treasure found nowhere
else a three-museum complex
relating the story of a man and a
city. There is nothing like it
anywhere in the world. If the
university neglects such a
treasure, it will have failed as a
citadel of knowledge.

By JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
Jon Reep grew up in
Hickory, N.C. a place
that is famous for
furniture manufacturing
and as the home of the
pig in the "Green Acres"
TV show.
His comedy act relies
heavily on that down-
home, simple upbringing
and his memories of

Standing" competition
and just as much so
when he agreed to star in
a string of commercials
for Dodge trucks. Reep is
the guy you see hanging
out the window of a


the guy in the
big truck next
to him, "That
thing gotta
Hemi?"
He has also
appeared on
TBS's "Pit
Stop Come-
dy," NBC's
"Late Friday,"
and the ABC
sitcom


"Rodney" as Officer
Gerald Bob, the dim-
witted cop.
He says the Dodge
commercials earned him
recognition and a new
truck.


Dodge and said 'Hey, that
Hemi guy who is doing
your commercials is
driving a Suzuki Side-
kick.' The next thing you
know they sent me one
of those huge, quad-cab
Hemi trucks. But it was
too big for L.A. I couldn't
park it and could barely
get it in my garage."
While many of Reep's
characters are slow-
thinking country boys,
he is far from it in real
life. He has lived in Los
Angeles the last 10
years and said every
time he returns to
Hickory his old friends


to LA they think I'm a
redneck," he said.
Of course, he claims,
he is not a redneck.
He refers to himself as
a "well-read neck."
"If you were born and
raised in a small town,
but now either live or
work in a big city, that's a
Metro Jethro," he says in
his routine. "We take the
good parts of small town
life and apply them or
adapt them to big city
life. For example, I drink
martini's made with
moonshine. They're
delicious."
Reep brings his PG-13-


weekends,
always
looking to
"pick up
chicks."
Reep's
popularity
got a rocket

'Fat Pig' is food for thought at Banyan Theater


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Some people grow up
sooner than others.
Some never make it.
Banyan Theater's final
production for the sum-
mer season, Neil LaBute's
"Fat Pig" takes a look at
four young working people
who may or may not ever
make it.
Ruled by what others
might think, they make
their choices, seemingly
blind to whether those
choices are good or bad.
These four people get
under your skin almost
from the first sentence.


This production is a
perfect combination of
writing, acting and
directing. That each
element is so strong makes
"Big Fat Pig" yet another
must-see from a company
that consistently offers
quality rather than
quantity.
Tom Sullivan (Sam
Osheroff) is a likable
sort who, after a chance
meeting with Helen
(Margot Moreland), a
woman of size, likes her
laugh and wants to see
her again. Helen's weight
may or may not get in the
way of the budding


relationship. Like Tom,
she is a somewhat
sympathetic character
and, as written and
performed real.
Less likable are Carter
(Dane Dandridge Clark)
and Jeanne (Bethany
Weise). Carter flits from
woman to woman and
spends an awful lot of time
on Tom's office couch,
wasting time and causing
grief, because of his
personal outlook on life
and people. Jeanne, an
accountant at the compa-
ny employing Tom and
Carter, has a history of
making bad choices when


it comes to men.
Anyone who does not
form definite opinions
about each of these
characters must have more
hang-ups than the four
combined, so strong is the
presentation of each of
these personalities,
especially as directed by
Greg Leaming.
The modular set by
KirkV Hughes cleanly
facilitates multiple scene
changes in a modish
sort of manner.
Costumes are by Jaye
Annette Sheldon, with
lighting by Michael
Pasquini and sound by


Steve Lemke.
Tickets are $28.50,
students $8. "Fat Pig" is
being performed through
Aug. 23 in the Cook
Theatre at the Florida State
University Center for the
Performing Arts, 5555
North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota. Visit


www.banyantheatercom-
pany.com or call its box
office at 941-552-1032,

Park it for ecology education


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
No matter how many
trees you have hugged,
until you have seen
wetlands and mangroves
up close, your knowledge
of Florida's unique coastal
ecology may be lacking.
Quick Point Nature
Preserve in the the town
of Longboat Key is a
unique educational road
trip destination where
one can wander through
wetlands, wade in the
waters of New Pass and
Sarasota Bay and enjoy all
manner of wildlife.
Just over the south
bridge to Longboat Key on
Gulf of Mexico Drive, the
34-acre park is on the
north side of New Pass,
which resulted from the
1848 hurricane that struck
the area. The mangroves
which grown there along
the water's edge and the
wetland area within the
park help to provide food
and shelter for neighboring
Sarasota Bay. The town of
Longboat Key acquired the
park area in 1985 to
reestablish the habitat in
order to protect the bay by
providing food and shelter
to bay wildlife and aquatic
creatures in the area. The
mangroves, sea grasses and
native plants serve as filters
for the waters of the bay
while retarding erosion.
Photo opportunities
abound. At your feet you
will see the beginnings of
new mangroves sprouting
from the sand. You might
see whelks, conchs and
little crabs. A little farther
out in the water, fish will fit
and dart about. The day of
my visit, someone was
fishing out in the bay and
another man was there
with his young son, casting
their lines over a bridge

Directions
Take Interstate 75 to Exit 207 (Bee Ridge Road). Travel
west to U.S. 41 (Tamiami Trail). Turn right and stay
on 41, which will become Mound St., just past
Sarasota High School when S.R. 301 branches off on
right. Keep to left and turn left on to the John Rin-
gling Causeway, which will go up and over the
Ringling Causeway Bridge toward St. Armand's Circle.
At the circle, turn right and right again onto John
Ringling Boulevard, which goes toward Longboat Key
and Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. There is
a traffic light at Ken Thompson Parkway, which leads
to Mote and Go past the light and over the bridge as
the road's name changes to Gulf of Mexico Drive.
Parking is to the left and the park to the right.


into a small pond within
the park. They didn't catch
anything and if they had,
they were prepared to
throw them back but it was
a pleasant father-son
pastime.
In several places, I
discovered natural picture
frames made by the
mangroves. The views
ranged from small ponds
to, in one case, what
appeared to be a family of
birds out for a stroll.
According to signs posted
within the park, visitors
should be on the lookout
for wading birds like Snowy
Egret, Great American
Egret, Herring Gull, Great
Blue Heron, White Ibis
and Osprey.
Parks such as Quick
Point nature Preserve are
considered important
examples of how people
can reestablish areas
harmed by development.
After the town acquired
the land, ecologists
devised a plan which
included a man-made
tidal lagoon dredged to
varying depths to provide
homes to a variety of fish
and shellfish. The pond's
algae is a source of food
for wildlife living there.
Red, black and white
mangroves are three of the

The red variety is found at
the edge of the water
Since its restoration,
the area is said to be very
similar to the way it might
have been 100 years ago
when Sarasota had just a
small settlement of
humans.
Despite restoration
work already completed,
the park remains a work in
progress. Still there are
stands of Australian pines
and Brazilian pepper, two
invasive plants which have

been targeted for removal
because of their tendency
to spread rapidly and take
over areas of native plants.
Beneficial plants that
are being encouraged in
the park are the Florida
Cabbage Palm, Red Bay
and shrubs such as
Seagrape and Sea Myrtle.
Depending the time of
year when you visit, you
might find clumps of sea
grapes hanging from the
shrubs. Do not pick those
or anything else growing
within the park. Closer to
ground level, again
depending on the season,
you might find Seaside
Goldenrod, Narrow-leafed
sunflowers of a variety of
Morning Glory.
If you go wading from


any of several small sandy
beaches in the park. you
might find yourself in a
bed of seagrass. Expect to
find schools of minnows
there but also an abun-
dance of other wildlife,
some of which you will
not even be able to see.
Years ago there would
have been larger areas of
seagrasses but boat
propellers and storm
water runoff have
wrecked havoc with
seagrass beds over the
years. Ecologists encour-
age boaters to walk or pole
out of grass if stuck there
rather than running their
motors and causing more
harm. New ways to handle
run-off and wastewater
treatment also seems to be


helping. Avoid walking
through the seagrass if you
can,
The park is at 100 Gulf
of Mexico Drive, just over
the bridge to Longboat Key.
There is ample parking in
the lot to the left. From
there, walk along the path
beneath the bridge to the
park. It is against the law of
the town of Longboat Key
to possess any alcoholic
beverages within the park.

Next Greenfield Prize will go to visual artist


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
You can't apply for the
Greenfield Prize but if you
win, you get a $30,000
commission in your field,
a six-week stay at The
Hermitage Artist Retreat
on Manasota Beach and a
partnership with a
professional arts
organization.
Next year's award, the
third, will go to a visual
artist. The Greenfield
Prize was established in
2008 by Sarasota residents
Bob and Louise Green-
field in conjunction with
the Greenfield Founda-
tion, which is based in
Philadelphia. To insure
equality of the arts, a
rotation system was
established that gives the
award in the field of
drama one year, music
the next year and to a
"wild card" field the
following year. As this is
the third year, it is a wild
card year in which the
award to be given to
someone in any discipline
or even to someone in
multiple disciplines. Now
that it has been decided
that the award will go to
someone in the field of
visual art, it is up to the
award committee to find
that person.


Hermitage Executive
Director Bruce Rogers is
the facilitator for the five-
person selection panel of
experts in American art.
The panel, whose mem-
bers are kept secret until
the prize is announced,
selects 30 nominees from
whom the winner is
eventually selected. Panel
members are selected by
Dan Cameron, Director of
Visual Arts at the Con-
temporary Arts Center of

tee in the selection
process. Next year's
winner will be announced
on April 15 in Sarasota.
The first recipient of the
Greenfield Prize was Craig

his project at The her-

The Hermitage has
made an international
name for itself since its
development as an artist
retreat of restored homes
and an old beach cottage
on an 8-acre beachfront
site on Manasota Key. All
the buildings are fur-
nished. There are indoor
and outdoor common
areas, a boardwalk over
the dunes to the beach,
kitchen and laundry
facilities plus internet
access from common
areas. Resident artists
receive a private room
and bath plus meals
during their stay. Scottish
sculptor Malcomb
Roberts was the first artist
invited to spend time at
the site. While there he
designed a work that was
ultimately placed at the
Fruitville Library.
Playwright Romulus


Linney IV was there for
three weeks a year ago
and returned this year to
complete his six-weeks
residency. During his first
stay he and Rogers
participated in a discus-
sion at Venice Theatre
with its artistic director,
Murray Chase, and later
in a similar program at
Florida Studio Theatre in
Sarasota, which is led by
Artistic Director
Richard Hopkins.
Such presentations are
part of the requirement
for resident artists but
also become a legacy that
benefits the community.
That legacy element was
a goal of Syd Adler who
was instrumental in
developing the Her-
mitage as an artist
retreat.
"This is a great thing,"
Linney said when
interviewed at the time of
his first visit to The
Hermitage. "I hope

The Greenfield Prize
goes even farther by
pairing the winner with
one or more experts in
the field to further
develop the work for
public presentation.

Florida Studio Theatre offers


Shakespeare 'as you like it'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Capping its busy
summer in three
venues, Florida Studio
Theatre offers "The
Complete Work of
William Shakespeare
(abridged)" on its
Keating MainStage
through Aug. 23.
While FST fans
continue to smile about
the recent production
of "Shirley Valentine"
and still break out in
laughs from the improv
nonsense in the Gold-
stein Cabaret, it seems


only fitting to cap the
summer with some
Shakespeare served
up in bite-sized morsels
for the sound-byte
generation.
In the span of two
hours, three players will
perform all 37 plays
written by the Bard, in a
form rewritten by Jess
Winfield, Adam Long
and Daniel Singer. The
actors, all from New
York, are Michael Daly,
Brad DePlanche and
Christopher Patrick
Mullen.
That it began as an


improv piece and has
been steadily updated
whenever and wherever
it has been performed,
including several years
in London, makes it the
perfect fit for FST,
which not only has a
strong improv history
but also has a knack
for either finding or
creating pieces such as
this. Another FST hit
based on the bard's
works was "Shake-
speare's Greatest Hits,"
offered as a musical
production some years
back in the Goldstein


Cabaret at FST.
Tickets for the current
production are $29-$32
per person.
FST's box office is at
1241 N. Palm Ave., at
the corner of Cocoanut,
in downtown Sarasota.
It is open Monday from
9 a.m.- 6 p.m., Tuesday
through Saturday, from
9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on
Sunday from 11 a.m. to
9 p.m. Tickets also may
be purchased on line at
www.florida
studiotheatre.org.
For information, call
941-366-9000.

Sign on to sign up for the latest deal from Busch Gardens Tampa Bay


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Sign on to sign up for
the latest deal from Busch
Gardens Tampa Bay.
As the theme park that
grew up from a Brewery
tour and zoo celebrates its
50th anniversary, it is
sharing the wealth in a
manner of speaking.
Florida residents get the
coolest deal the chance
to be soaked at Adventure
Island before or after they
get the old heart pumping
on some of the fastest
rides in the Southeast at
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
By booking online, Florida
residents get both parks
for the price of one and
the tickets are good
through the end of
the year.
Head up to Tampa
before the end of this
weekend for an extra
bonus the Island Nights
celebration at Adventure
Island. Think steel drums,


luaus, key lime pie and
conch fritters. The luaus
occur nightly at Mango
Joes but the party is
throughout the park. Watch
out for the stiltwalkers.
In the park that started it
all, the newest attraction is
Jungala, a jungle-themed
water play area with water
spouts similar to those in
the children's fountain in
downtown Venice, but that
is where the similarity
ends and the thrills begin.
Take a dive on SheiKra,
which was the first true
vertical-drop coaster in the
United States when it was
installed at Busch Gardens
Tampa Bay in 2005. Two
years later it was made
even more exciting to ride
when its floor was
removed. Now, when you
make the big drop, all you
see is the bottom coming
toward you, 200 feet below
the first drop on the ride,
and then there is more.
Not to worry if it makes


you sweat for the final
splashdown will cool you
off and prepare you to get
back in line and do it
again.
For those who want
more than two parks for
the price of one, the
Florida resident annual
pass the Fun Card -


offers unlimited admission
to Busch Gardens through
Dec. 31 for the price of one
day's admission to Busch
Gardens Tampa Bay.

Johnny Leverock's: This is fisherman territory


From the fishing-rod
door handles to the
life-like fish on the
walls, the theme of Johnny
Leverock's is immediately
apparent. This is fisher-
man territory, and the
omnipresent parapherna-
lia does not leave any
doubt of that.
In the entrance area, an
inverted dinghy serves as
the housing for lighting.
The location completes
the picture with one of the
dining rooms looking out
on a marina and the other
with a view toward the
Intracoastal Waterway
beyond.
The four of us, seated in
a booth big enough for six,
were grateful for the
thoughtfully printed
version of the "blackboard
specials" given to us with
our menus. Our smiling
waitress was patient as we
took our time over the
listings, as our sweet
friends offered to vary
their choices so as to give
us a greater variety to
sample.
A loaf of tasty brown
bread came on a plank.
For appetizers, we decided
on the Stuffed Mushroom

with a garlic breadstick on
the side, were a bit
lackluster and would have
benefited from the
addition of garlic in the
sauce. On the other hand,
the Mushroom Caps were
filled with a delectable
blue crab stuffing topped
with a lemony sauce.
While we waited for our
entrees, she enjoyed a
tomato salad: slices of ripe
tomato adorned with
chopped red onion
showered with capers in a
light balsamic vinaigrette
and he had the fresh

skewers of both sirloin and

tempted her. The charcoal

Houdini legend continues in Sarasota


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
With permission of the
closest living relatives of
the late Harry Houdini,
magician Vince Carmen
brings weds Houdini-style
magic with his own
humorous style of pres-
tidigitation and that of his
wife, famous unicyclist
Yvonne Carmen. Joining
them in this current series
of shows at Houdini's
Showplace in Sarasota is
their younger daughter
Erika, a student at
Riverview High School.
Using sketch pads, a live
bird, cards galore, scarves,
coins and a bowling ball,
Carmen shows his dexteri-
ty as members of the
audience collectively
wonder "How did he
do that?"


Carmen's talent has
taken Carmen all around
the world. Whether New
Zealand or Las Vegas or
Reno, Carmen has per-
formed most the classic
acts and, with his wife and
at least one of his daugh-
ters, he has gone on to
create an act that is truly
one of a kind.
He levitates his daugh-
ter. He encloses his wife in
a box and then sticks
knives through the box.
Then he puts his wife in
yet another box and spins
her head around so many
times that audience
members get dizzy. Did I
mention that her body
does not spin?
As good as the magic is,
so is the bonus that comes
with this show -Yvonne
on a unicycle, using her


right foot to kick saucers
and cups up in the air so
they will land on the top of
her head. Eventually the
stack of cups and saucers
nearly reaches the ceiling
above the stage the
recessed ceiling above the
stage. While all this is
going on the girls also
manage to change
costumes more times than
most people can track.
A little girl down front
had the time of her life
when called on stage to
participate. She soon
found herself spitting up
quarters into a metal pot
and then discovered, with
Carmen's help, that she
seemed to have an
unending supply of
additional coins behind
her ears, tucked into her
clothing and even behind


an elbow. She was reward-
ed with a stunning hat,
fashioned before her eyes
from little scraps of paper

Universal Orlando Resort reveals Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit's song list


PROVIDED BY
UNIVERSAL ORLANDO
Along with first-ever
maneuvers and high-tech
innovation, Universal
Orlando's new Hollywood
Rip Ride Rockit roller
coaster is an entirely new
way to experience music.
The coaster's playlist
features 30 hits from
artists that span across
five genres of music and
generations of fans.
Hollywood Rip Ride
Rockit is the only roller
coaster in the world that
brings such a diverse
group of artists together.
Collectively, they have
sold hundreds of millions
of albums. They are Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame
Inductees, Grammy
Award winners and pop
culture icons. They are
the latest and the leg-


endary of the music
world featuring the Black
Eyed Peas, Donna
Summer, Kanye West,
Evanescence and
N.E.R.D.
Some riders will choose
songs because they've
danced to them in clubs
or belted them out in
their cars: songs like
Fergie's "Glamorous" or
No Doubt's "Hella Good."
Others will choose songs
that bring back favorite
musical memories, like
the legendary MC
Hammer, now starring in
Hammertime, an A&E
reality series following his
life and family.
"Riding a roller coaster,
going fast and the energy
that's in my music they
go hand-in-hand," said
MC Hammer, whose song
"U Can't Touch This" is a


song choice on Holly-
wood Rip Ride Rockit.
"So, riding Rockit at 65
miles per hour with the
music pumping is going
to be a lot of fun."
Guests will use a
personal touchpad
mounted on the lap bar
to make their music
selection. They will
choose their favorite
genre Classic
Rock/Metal, Rap/Hip-
Hop, Club/Electronica,
Pop/Disco or Country -
and then pick a song.
Each seat is outfitted with
individual stereo speak-
ers so guests can rock out
to 90 decibels of music -
and yet never hear the
songs playing for other
riders. Their song pick
will be the soundtrack to
their ride and to a music
video they can purchase


that uses on- and off-
board cameras to mix
music, moves and special
effects.
"I think that this is a
really creative use of
music. We're very excited
to be a part of something
so outside the box and for
our fans to experience
music in this cool new
way," added Amy Lee,
Evanescence's founder,
singer and songwriter.
Hollywood Rip Ride
Rockit will feature the
song list below. Each
genre of music includes
contemporary and classic
artists, with songs for
every age group. To hear
samples of each song,

touchpad will appear,
similar to the one guests
will see on the roller
coaster.

Reunion: Luxury and a deal to match


By JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
REUNION Just west
of Mickey Mouse is an
oasis for golfers and
families that not only
draws a 5-star rating
from Expedia but
provides both a vacation
and a residential
destination.
Reunion, a 2,300-acre
resort that features a
water park and three
signature golf courses, is
just six miles from
Disney World making
it an ideal destination to
get away from crowds
and traffic while still
convenient to all of the
Disney theme parks. The
resort has amenities for
a luxurious getaway for
couples or just a fun trip
for families.
What makes Reunion
even more attractive
right now is a two-for-
one night special that
runs through Sept. 30. If
you make reservations
for any day between
now and then you can
get an extra night in a
luxury one, two or three-
bedroom villa for every
night you pay for. Even
another deal is the
"Bailout Blues Package"
that features a three-
bedroom deluxe villa for
as low as $229 a night
through Sept. 30
(with a two-night
minimum stay).
While that may sound
a little pricey in today's
economy still, Reunion
is a true luxury resort -
not a big hotel that calls
itself a resort.
Four years ago the old
Florida, Charleston-style
homes were just sprout-
ing when the resort first
opened its gates to
vacationers. The water

bedroom suites along with a rooftop pool complex and a fine dining restaurant.


park was just a plan on
paper and stables were
built to house horses for
trail rides.
Today, the horse idea
has been abandoned but
the five-acre water park
is a big draw. And those
few homes that dotted
the lushly landscaped
property now number
about 2,000, counting
the villas and condo-
miniums.
It's easy to get a good
first impression. Visitors
are paired with a per-
sonal concierge who will
help you with tee times,
dinner reservations, spa
appointments and any
information you need.
Perhaps the only
drawback to a Reunion
vacation is deciding
what to do first.
Golfers especially have
a tough decision to
make because there are
three courses that are on


par with just about
anything in central or
south Florida Arnold
Palmer's Legacy; Tom
Watson's Independence
and Jack Nicklaus'
Tradition. And, if you
feel you need a little
tuneup, you can sched-
ule a lesson at the
ANNIKA Academy,
operated by LPGA Hall
of Famer Annika Soren-
stam and her long-time
swing coach and per-
sonal trainer.
Sorenstam is taking
time off for a pregnancy
but she can be seen
from time to time
at the academy.
"She is heavily
involved in it," said
Nikki Lindgren,
spokesperson for the
resort. "It has been
open about two and
one-half years and it
does very well. We have
to limit the number of


people enrolled
at one time."
The resort offers
several pools, and six
restaurants including
FortO, a contemporary
chophouse and fine
dining facility and


Families enjoy the lazy river at Reunion Resort's five-acre
water park recently. The park offers a twisting water slide, an
interactive children's play area, a sandy beach, volleyball and
lounge areas along with a Kids Crew program for youngsters.

IF YOU GO

Eleven, a rooftop cafe
serving tapas and small
bites from all over the
world. Eleven is said to
be a great location to see
the fireworks from
Disney World each night.
Golf, spas, pools, a
water park, room decors
that look like they came


out of "Southern Living"
all combine to make
Reunion an attractive
destination for golfers,
couples and families.
