Much amiss at Venice airport


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


As if the city of Venice didn't
have enough on its plate with a
formal Part 16 complaint
pending with the Federal
Aviation Administration, now
the FAA has released results of
a special audit of the Venice
airport, and the news is any-
thing but good.
The city made public the
FAA land use audit on Tuesday.
It has far reaching implications
for the Venice Municipal
Airport further solidifying
the FAA's long-held position
that Lake Venice Golf Club's
driving range is in a safety
zone, and it has to go.
The report, written a week
earlier on Aug. 10, found a
series of non-aeronautic leases
that were not approved by the
FAA, as required in its original
quit claim deeds. The leases
will have to be approved, and
in some cases, renegotiated to
ensure the airport fund re-
ceives its fair share of rent in-
come. Unlike aeronautic leas-
es, non-aeronautic leases are
required to fetch fair market
value. It's a mechanism used so
non-aviation uses don't force

out preferred aeronautic-relat-
ed businesses.
The FAA also wants the city
to demonstrate that the pro-
ceeds from the disposal of air-
port property were properly
reinvested in airport capital
improvements.
The audit even questions
airport boundaries, saying
property maps from 1947
through 2005 "don't appear to
consistently define the limits


of parcels transferred from the
U.S. government via quit claim
deeds or the current airport
property boundary."
Plan required
The city has 30 days to sub-
mit a "corrective action plan"
that explains why it didn't seek
FAA concurrence when it en-

Leases under fire


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

An FAA land use audit dated
Aug. 10 reviewed deeds, leases
and other documents dating
back to the original Venice
Municipal Airport quitclaim
deed in 1947. The audit found
a number of irregularities that
unless corrected could subject
the city to civil penalties over
the following leases:

State removes GED Exit Option


BY NATALIE NEYSA ALUND
BRADENTON HERALD

As of this month, the state
has done away with the GED
Exit Option, an alternative
graduation program that al-
lowed Florida high school stu-
dents in jeopardy of not grad-
uating with their class to earn
diplomas if they met other
requirements, including pass-
ing the state FCAT exam and
GED tests.
The Florida Department of
Education announced that a
formal review of the program
revealed there is no "statutory
authority" to issue those stu-
dents mainstream diplomas.
'As a result, the GED Exit
Option will no longer be avail-
able to students in Florida as
of Aug. 1, 2009," Frances Han-
cock, the state's chancellor of
public schools, wrote in a July
31 memo to school district
superintendents.
That means students must
now qualify for a standard
diploma or other approved
graduation options, including
a GED equivalency diploma.
The exit option program
had allowed enrolled high
school students in jeopardy of
not graduating with their
classmates to get a diploma if
they pass
FCAT and
GED tests.
Other
requirements
included c
they be age
17 or older
and enrolled
in a dropout
prevention Zucker
program.
Students who qualified
stayed enrolled in school and
walked with their class at
graduation.
"That is why it's called the
exit option," said Linda Agres-
ta, who oversees the GED Exit
Option program at Manatee
Technical Institute. "We are
always happy when someone
achieves their high school di-


ploma. The GED Exit Option
program was just another
choice for students to get it."
'Five more'
The Florida GED require-
ments include being at least
18 years old or being grant-
ed a GED age waiver and
passing the GED tests.
In the Sarasota County
School District, 159 students
used the GED Exit program to
receive diplomas during the
2007-08 school year. Statistics
for the 2008-09 year were not
available, district spokesman
Scott Ferguson said. He did
say the average number of
GED Exit Option diplomas
distributed during the 2004-
2008 school years each year
was 154.
Sarasota County School
Board Chair Caroline Zucker
said it wouldn't matter if there
were only five Sarasota Coun-
ty students using the program.
"That's five students more
(graduating) than before.
There are some students who
will only graduate because of
the GED Exit program," she
said. "I think we need to be
offering more options. And I
can't understand why the state
doesn't have statutory author-
ity. If they don't have it, they
should get it."
Although Sarasota County
students also can take advan-
tage of the Performance-Bas-
ed Diploma program, which
includes specialized classes
that allow students to work at
their own pace, Zucker wasn't
sure what, if anything, would
take the place of the GED Exit
program.
"I know staff is working on
things to help students gradu-
ate although it's not like we
just want the students to use
the GED Exit option," she
said. "We want every student
to graduate. But for those stu-
dents who can't any other way,
I think it's a shame."

Credit card companies are incresing interest rates before the law goes
into effect.


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

A bill signed into law at the
end of May may prove benefi-
cial to consumers in the long
run because a main ingredient
will require a 45-day wait time
before credit card companies
can increase interest rates on
balances owed.
It's the short run that is
proving difficult for some card
holders.
The law doesn't go into ef-


fect until February 2010, which
gives the card companies
ample time to increase interest
rates and minimum payments
due from card holders who
carry a balance. The compa-
nies are raising interest rates
and minimum payments now.
On July 1, Christina Lydeck-
er, of Venice, said a friend of
hers got a letter from her cred-
it card company saying she
would have to pay more than
she was paying on her balance
of $800.


"She called the bank and
told them she could only
afford to pay $20 a month
instead of what they were ask-
ing," Lydecker said. "And she
asked if she could put her pay-
ment on hold for a couple of
months while she was in tran-
sition moving to another place.
They told her no. The $20 a
month wasn't good enough for
them."
Linda Wheeler, of Port
Charlotte, said she charges
everything every month and
pays off the balance at the end
of the month. Her friend, Sue
Bassett, of Plant City, said she
does the same thing. Bassett
said she heard the credit card
companies are going to start
charging those who pay off
their bills each month.
"If they do that, I'll get rid of
my credit cards," Bassett said.
"It's a charge card world,"
Wheeler said.
Another woman, who chose
to remain anonymous, said
she doesn't have credit cards
but her cousin does and com-
plained about increased fees.
"She is never late on a pay-
ment, but they raised her rates
anyway, and she was pretty
upset about it," the woman
said. "They don't care if you
pay on time. They don't want
people to pay on time. They
want those who don't pay on
time so they can get more
money on those late fees," the
woman added.
Politician's response
In an e-mail, Congressman
Vern Buchanan said he sup-
ported the new credit card
rules "to protect consumers
from sudden increases in cred-
it card rates by requiring a 45-
day notice and an explanation
before rates can be increased."
When told that credit card
companies are increasing in-
terest rates and minimum pay-

Scallop-seeding volunteers needed


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY
The Sarasota Environ-
mental Aquatics Team is
again partnering with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute and local
volunteers to increase the
local bay scallop popula-
tion. Through a scallop-
seeding project, environ-
mental officials hope to
propagate scallop species,
which in the past had
declined due to overfishing


and poor water quality.
This year's program offi-
cially begins in August.
To track the SEA Team's
progress, 15 scallop moni-
toring sites were established
throughout the county. The
traps from the monitoring
stations are sent to the insti-
tute, where biologists count
the number of scallop juve-
niles, known as spat.
To volunteer for the pro-
gram and host a scallop site,
call 861-5000 and ask for the
scallop-seeding project.

Wise up, lock up
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office is remind-
ing citizens to lock their
vehicles and keep valu-
able out of sight. There
were several auto bur-
glaries over the weekend,
and in nearly every case
the vehicle was unlocked
and electronics such as
iPods, computers and
GPS units were clearly
visible. SCSO officials
encourage residents to
reduce their risk of theft
by locking their vehicles
and removing valuables
from view.
Taping leads
to altercation
On Aug. 14 about 1:47
a.m. Venice Police Depart-
ment officers went to the
Tavern on the Island, 127
E. Tampa Ave., to investi-
gate a battery incident.
Two males had been
injured, and one was


transported to Venice
Regional Medical Center.
He was treated for a frac-
tured orbital bone and
other facial fractures.
According to the police
report: Delmer Smith, 38,
3700 block Bobko Circle,
North Port, was arrested
and charged with aggra-
vated battery on the above
mentioned
victim and
battery on a
second vic-
tim.
The first
victim and
his girlfriend
were on the
Smith dance floor,
and the sec-
ond victim was socializing.
Smith was onstage, stand-
ing next to disk jockey
Michele Quinones, mak-
ing an unsolicited video of
the first victim's girlfriend.
Her boyfriend asked Smith
to stop and an altercation

stepped in and broke the
two up momentarily and
then the fight began again.
By the time police
arrived, Smith was gone
and it was later learned
that he was Quinones'
boyfriend. She called
him to come back to the
scene, which he did.
According to the report:
Smith admitted videotap-
ing the girl and striking
the first victim, however,
he said he was defend-
ing himself after the vic-
tim rushed on stage and


began pushing him.
Video surveillance was
reviewed of the dance
floor, and it showed a
sequence of events con-
sistent with the victims'
statements.
Smith was then arrest-
ed and charged.

aeronautical leases, and how it will change the leases
to ensure fair market value will be maintained in the
future.
City Manager Isaac Turner, in a letter to council
members, said staff will prepare a plan to address
issues discussed in the report and will submit the
plan by Sept. 10.
"Prior to that submittal, you will be given an op-
portunity to review and comment on our response,"
Turner said.
The city has been sparring with the FAA over myr-
iad issues involving airport growth, noise, and run-
way safety zones that extend over sections of the Gulf
Shores neighborhood. Revised RSZs that extend over
their homes, some claim, could decrease the value of
their property.
Safety, too
Safety concerns, not the intended the subject of
the audit, were raised as well.
The FAA recommended publishing nationwide a
standard form indicating standing water is present on
runway 4/22 during and after periods of rainfall. It's
also recommending the city repaint taxiway edge
markings and runway markings, and fix runway
intersection signs and lighting.
"I was surprised first thing they pointed out was safe-
ty," said Nick Carlucci, president of the Venice Aviation
Society Inc., a nonprofit pilot's organization dedicated
to raising safety awareness at the airport. The condition
of runway 4/22 has "gotten worse this last year. It's
unfortunate the FAA came in to do a land use audit and
saw the run-down condition of the airport."
The city had an opportunity to apply for federal
airport stimulus funds late last year but didn't.
Friendship center
Unexpected, was a finding that Venice's Senior
Friendship Center lease was never approved by the
FAA, either. The center, located off Shamrock Boul-
evard, was originally part of a 48-acre parcel donated
under a quit claim deed to the West Coast Inland
Navigation District from the city in 1963 for use as a
disposal area while it dug the Intracoastal Waterway.
The deed contained a reverter clause that stated
when the property was no longer needed by the
WCIND it would go back to the city as airport proper-
ty.
In 1986 the WCIND made an agreement with
Sarasota County to grant a license agreement for the
Senior Friendship Centers for "zero compensation,"
the audit report states. The FAA agreed to the lease as
long as it was temporary. But in 1993, the U.S.
Department of Transportation's Office of the General
Inspector found the rents were not fair market value.
The FAA requested the city to revert the parcel from
WCIND and begin fair rental value revenue collection
by Dec. 15, 1993.
"It appears that this matter is still unresolved at this
time," wrote FAA Assistant Manager Bart Vernance,


author of the audit report.
Jet Center
Vemance went on to make an observation that
could apply to another burning issue the city's
wish to purchase the Venice Jet Center to avoid build-
ing more jet hangars.
"This use of airport property appears to support a
municipal goal," Vernance wrote. 'An airport owner
may not choose to make non-aeronautical use of air-
port property and then willingly undervalue the
property in order to support a municipal goal."
It's the same argument Burton Wiand, the receiver
of the jet center, made in his Part 16 complaint. Wiand
has been pressuring the city to issue permits to build
four new hangars to make the jet center more desir-
able. He is attempting to sell the assets of Art Nadel,
who is in jail facing charges of investment fraud relat-
ed to an alleged hedge fund ponzi scheme. Wiand got
a federal judge to sign off on his filing of the Part 16
complaint earlier this year.
Sharky's lease
A slew of citizen complaints over what the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition called a sweetheart deal for
the Sharky's On The Pier restaurant lease sparked the
FAA decision to initiate the audit, according to earlier
FAA correspondence.
"The city must meet its federal obligations by
revoking, modifying or amendment by use agree-
ment so that the terms ... are consistent with FAA
Order 5190.6A, Airport Compliance Requirements,"
Vemance wrote.
Reactions
City Manager Isaac Turner said the report was
more inspection than audit.
"We knew it was coming. We had a couple of meet-
ings with the FAA and staff members," Turner said.
"We intend to work with them and respond to get
items as closely compliant as we can."
Gary Budway, president of the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition, was glad The Pier Group
contract might be reexamined, but disappointed
other issues weren't brought up.
"They dealt with one major issue, but there is more
than one major issue. All the rest is housekeeping.
For God sakes why don't you look at aviation issues,
like the Jet Center? There are no landing fees. Planes
come and go without any inspections. What goes on
here?"
"The FAA clearly changed their tone," Carlucci
said. "It went from 'we recommend' to where the FAA
is now saying 'we want an action plan, and here is a
hard deadline.'"
Council Member Kit McKeon said the audit might
get some people's dander up, but he sees it as a posi-
tive step.
"This is great. It's what I thought we might see,"
McKeon said, considering the city went through a
prolonged period without an airport manager before
it hired Airport Director Fred Watts.


"It allows the FAA and city to be exactly on the
same sheet of music and come into compliance in
areas where we were not in compliance in the past,"
McKeon said.
"The issues are identified. All we need to do is cor-
rect them. This should be a win-win now that it's in
black and white."
Coalition concerns
Since the election of slow-growth city council
members in 2007 the Venice airport has risen to the
top of troubled airports in the state and made head-
lines in national trade magazines for attempts to
decrease traffic and noise at the airport's expense.
Led by Council Member Sue Lang, who founded
the Venice Neighborhoods Coalition, supporters
defend their actions, calling it a quality of life issue,
arguing citizens have a right to keep the airport small
and noise to a minimum.
The coalition and supporters succeeded in dis-
mantling the city's airport advisory board after the
2007 election, then tossed out a draft master plan that
cost $350,000, funded by the FAA, in favor of a plan
still under review that attempts to downgrade the air-
port code from a "C" airport, which indicates small
jets can land there, to a "B" airport, generally fre-
quented by smaller single and twin-engine planes.
When developers offered a string of possible pro-
jects on airport property, the Lake Venice Golf Course
community joined forces with the coalition to protect
affordable golf. But it hasn't been able to convince the
FAA to see things its way.
In surprisingly direct language, FAA auditors said
the airport safety areas, which cover part of the dri-
ving range, "serve a specific purpose in protecting the
aircraft" another indication they may not budge on
the issue.
"In order for the airport to maintain control of
these areas and ensure compatibility, these areas
should not be leased. Leasing of the safety areas, crit-
ical areas, and object-free areas would place the air-
port in conflict with the grant assurance," states the
audit report.
High profile
Council is already on the national stage for a law-
suit filed against it for Open-Government Sunshine
violations. Plaintiffs are seeking $2.4 million in attor-
neys' fees using a multiplier awarded in special cases
that have significant impact.
The city settled in April admitting guilt after a year-
long battle in which a 12th circuit court judge ordered
the personal computers of three sitting members be
confiscated and forensically examined.
It was the first time an elected official anywhere
in the nation was ordered to turn over his personal
computer. The case involved more than 130,000 per-
sonal e-mails that were found discussing city busi-
ness, much of it related to activities surrounding the
airport.

ments for many card holders
before the law goes into effect,
even those who have a good
payment history, Buchanan
responded.
"Consumers in perfectly
good standing with their credit
card company are under-
standably outraged when that
company hikes their interest
rate based on information
unrelated to the card. That is
why I supported the legislation
signed into law by the presi-
dent to protect borrowers from
sudden rate increases. The bill
would require 45 days notice,
which would give consumers
an opportunity to shop around
for a lower rate."

Bank rate increases

Betty Reiss, spokesperson
for Bank of America, said the
company has increased inter-
est rates for some of their cred-
it card customers. It does not
charge interest to card users
who pay off their cards each
month.
"In April, we notified a small


SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


segment (less than 10 per-
cent) of customers about a
rate increase," Reiss said.
"Some accounts were
repriced because the interest
rate was below 10 percent,
which was significantly less
than our cost to do business
in the current market. Others
were the result of a periodic
review of individual account
risk, which takes into account
an individual's performance
with us as well as external
credit risk indicators."
But consumers had a choice,
Reiss said. They could have
rejected the new rate and agreed
to pay off the outstanding bal-
ance at the existing rate as long
as they do not charge any more
purchases on the card.
"Generally, accounts that
had a rate below 10 percent
went to a rate in the low to
mid-teens," she said.
When the repricing was
based on risk, the increase var-
ied depending on the individ-
ual account.
"The rate change went into
effect on the June statement,"
she said.


Unfair contract
Paula Dumas, of Venice, a
senior vice president at Day
Hagan Asset Management in
Sarasota, said the real issue is
why credit card companies are
allowed to charge 25 percent
on purchases.
"When you enter into a con-
tract with someone and
acquire a loan at a certain rate,
they (loan holder) shouldn't be
allowed to decide in mid-
stream to change the rate,"
Dumas said. "The credit card
customer has a binding con-
tract with the lender, and they
change it at will with 45 days
notice? In my mind, that is
what needs to be addressed."
Dumas said she under-
stands increasing the rates if a
customer is late three times
making payments and has a
bad payment history. She said
the issue surrounding credit
card debt is the same issue as
in the housing sector: people
are living beyond their means.
"The times we're in, no one
wants to carry debt," she said.
Dumas had some advice for
indebted consumers. She said


a person should talk to the
credit card company. If the
company notifies a customer it
is going to increase the interest
rate, the customer should take
advantage of the opt-out
clause.
"Tell them if you have a
good payment history and that
you want to maintain the pre-
vious interest rate. See if you
can work with the company.
"Three strikes and you're
out: give the credit card com-
pany three times to work
things out with you before you
give up. If you don't get any-
where, there are third party
companies to help settle debt.
Some are nonprofits, some
charge $50 and others charge a
monthly fee. But why add
another interest charge on top
of what you owe? You should
try to restructure your debt on
your own, working with the
company. It will look better on
your credit history," she said.
Dumas said people need to
go further. They need to make
a budget and get a handle on
their spending.
People should make a list of


their needs and wants and rec-
ognize what they truly need,
such as food, shelter and cloth-
ing (and not the best labels).
People need to look at their
relationship to money, she
said. "If their perception of
money is scarcity and they
never have enough, then they
will probably never have
enough. They need to identify
where their relationship with
money started and identify
steps to get out of the negative
cycle."
She said if you need to
restructure debt and pay it off,
then do it, but don't dwell on it.
"Think about things you
want, envision prosperity and
soak yourself in gratitude," she
said.
She added, "If you're going to
go into debt for something, plan
for how you're going to pay it off
... before you go into debt. Then
you can feel good, with a spend-
ing plan, versus a budget that is
more restrictive. You'll be build-
ing a positive relationship with
money," she said.

OUR VIEW



Good time for 'breather' on jail site


Is it back to square one in the siting
process for a new Sarasota County
jail?
That's a bit strong. Let's just call it a
moment of reflection.
Or, as county Criminal Justice
Policy Coordinator Wayne Applebee
said recently, it's "a breather," a good
time to look at the jail-siting criteria
and procedures used so far to see if
they can be improved.
It makes sense. Jail siting is a long
and controversial process. It's safe to
start with the idea that few people
want a jail in their back yard, even if
the jail is a relatively low-impact place
for nonviolent minimum- or medi-
um-security inmates, which would be
the case here.
You have to assume a strong
NIMBY factor from the outset and
look for a place that will work for law
enforcement and the taxpayers in
general, while generating the lowest
level of political heat.
Under those conditions, taking a


breather makes sense. And then
there's the fact that the effort so far
has yielded no clear winners.
The process to relieve overcrowd-
ing at the existing jail in downtown
Sarasota has been moving on two
parallel paths.
One would see the creation of a
community corrections center, a
nonsecure facility with residential
housing, treatment and counseling
services aimed at easing inmates'
transition back into society and help-
ing ensure they stay out of jail in the
future.
The county's advisory group, the
Community Justice Commission, first
looked at available buildings that
could be renovated for this purpose,
such as the Osprey Inn.
That fell flat late last month, offi-
cially, when the CJC rejected all sites
under consideration. But that was
only a first step and the result was
not completely unexpected so a
new set of options will be considered.


The other leg is building a second
jail. This would be a minimum-medi-
um security facility with 320 beds in
dormitory rooms. The county is look-
ing for 30 acres, preferably on land it
owns or land already offered by a will-
ing seller.
Three prime spots are near the
county landfill off Laurel Road in the
Venice area. The top site would
appear to be ideal: It is owned by the
county, there is plenty of land, it is
centrally located and just off the inter-
state.
But when the Community Partners
Work Group subcommittee met in
Laurel last month, they encountered
a large group of unhappy neighbors.
Politically, it would be messy. Other
possible sites Buchan Airport in
Englewood, Sumter Avenue in North
Port and a spot on River Road have
even more problems.
So it's time for a breather.
The county has hired a consultant
to review the process. Area land-use


planner Joel Freedman, who is work-
ing with a national engineering firm,
expects to have some recommenda-
tions soon.
Applebee is not discouraged. It is
still very early in the process. There
will be many chances for public
input. The CJC wants to get it right.
With these types of things, dealing
well with small problems early often
means avoiding huge problems
later.
It also highlights an opportunity
for the city of North Port. City com-
missioners have not taken a public
stand on building a jail in city limits,
but the impression is they might wel-
come one in the right spot for its
economic development benefits.
Police Chief Terry Lewis, for one, cer-
tainly wants it.
This is a good time to throw out the
welcome mat, even to start a cam-
paign, if that's the case. The rest of the
county just might appreciate a well-
timed IMBY movement.


Change is inevitable


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


To many of us, the loss of
Kmart in the Jacaranda Plaza is
a sad ending to more than 30
years of Blue Light Specials.
Kmart officially closes in No-
vember.
When Sue and I moved
here, the Jacaranda Plaza on
U.S. 41 Bypass was the new
shopping center signaling the
sprawling growth of Venice.
Kmart, Publix, Crowder's Hard-
ware and a movie theater
called the plaza home.
Today, it's the most blighted
of all our shopping centers. Yet,
what has happened there is no
different from what has hap-
pened to many shopping cen-
ters. While some have experi-
enced a rebirth, others have
not fared so well. Actually,
Kmart has outlived almost all
other anchor stores.
The shopping center across
the street from Jacaranda
Plaza, The Market Place, had
not only Albertsons but our
first Walmart. That one has
now turned into a group of
nice shops with Stein Mart, Of-
fice Depot and Dinette's Un-
limited filling the void left
when Walmart went to the new
growth spot, South Venice.
There was a big shopping
center where Lowe's is now
located. It had J Byron's de-
partment store, a Winn-Dixie
and a big movie theater com-
plex. Beall's Outlet was there
for awhile as was Office Depot.
All of these transitions took
place before Lowe's.
When I moved here, Bird
Bay Plaza sported a Grand
Union grocery store, a fitness
center with nice racquet ball
courts and some other nice
shops. Lots of people loved the
Morrison's Cafeteria located
there. Grand Union gave way
to Leith Furniture, which later
became Save-A-Lot and Big
Lots.
Across the street from Bird
Bay Plaza was a shopping cen-
ter featuring WT. Grant until it
went belly up only to be re-
placed for a short time by
Zayre. There was a Rite Aid
Pharmacy where the Family
Dollar store is now located.
The grocery anchor was Kash
n' Karry which is now Sweet-
bay Supermarket. Radio Shack
has been a longtime fixture
and may occupy the space that
was once a movie theater. The
old WT. Grant building went
through a lot of changes,


including Zayre, Badcock's
Furniture and an appliance
store before finally settling
with T*J* Maxx. Mae's Fabric
was a longtime early tenant. Of
course, the first to grace that
area was McDonald's, which
opened in 1972 or 1973.
On the island, the shopping
centers have changed a lot.
Publix, however, has been a
mainstay ofVenice's first shop-
ping center appropriately
called Venice Shopping Center.
At one time, Publix also had a
separate corner of the center
next to where Beall's Outlet is
now located that was once a
Danish bakery.
Many fondly remember
Woolworth's with its old-fash-
ion soda fountain. Walgreens
was there for a while and
maybe one of the interesting
places was the S and H Green
stamp store where Sal and
Tony's is now. There also was
Adams Houser Hardware.
Southeast Bank was the anchor
bank, having been replaced by
several generations of banks.
The Rialto shopping center
had a Winn-Dixie, which later
became a Food Lion. Eckerd's,
a name from the not too dis-
tant past, was the pharmacy.
Like the Venice Shopping
Center it has had a laundromat
since the beginning. Ntino's
restaurant has been there a
long time. Goodwill, with a
new facelift, is now located in
the old Winn-Dixie building.
Even somewhat newer pla-
zas have struggled.
The Galleria Plaza on South
Tamiami Trail was anchored
by a Kash n' Karry that became
a Super X before finally be-
coming Frank's 12, which is
really only 11 theaters.
Some will recall the Food-
way in what is now Matthew
Currie Ford's Truck Center or
the old grocery that was in the
Venice Nokomis Professional
Building in Nokomis.
It's fun to remember some
of the old businesses, like the
Pewter Mug, where Marine
Max is. That was one hopping
place.
Of course I have left out the
transformation of downtown
and the newer shopping pla-
zas. The downtown alone de-
serves an article unto itself.
The Gondolier was a part of
that history having been locat-
ed in a couple of buildings
downtown.
While it is sad to see the
Blue Light Specials leaving, we
can only hope that the shop-
ping center will get the rebirth
it desperately needs.


By's Crack: I just came
from a Poor People's March,
the checkout counter at the
grocery store.

Member recall is in order

Intolerable. Recall any members of the council? Absolutely
yes. Five members of our current city council have proven that
they have an agenda, which is their own personal agenda or that
of the people who have supported them. It is without question
not in the benefit of our community. Your paper, as well as other
sources, has reported the ineptitude of those who have followed
this agenda and it is absolutely intolerable. To realize with only
two seats coming open in November that we will be saddled with
this majority for another year is no longer an alternative. I would
vehemently support a recall of at least five sitting members of the
city council, and I'm very sad to have to state that the time has


come.

Listen up. Once again, Ven-
ice City Council and the mayor
manage to cost the citizens of
Venice more money and open
the door for yet more lawsuits.
In passing the short-term
rental ordinance, city council
inflicted financial pain on
those who were happy to com-
ply with city regulations. In
addition, the Milo settlement
will allow the very thing that
was a problem in the first place
to exist some 15 years into the
future. I doubt the powers at
Golden Beach will be happy
about this one. The ordinance
will not stand the test of time; it
will be repealed by an attorney
who understands property
rights and legal terms that
were hastily assembled to
implement a useless guideline,
and the lawsuits will begin.
Maybe if council could listen
to its own attorney? Maybe if
council would listen to the
people ofVenice?
This was the political plat-
form of current elected offi-
cials, yet these very candidates
refuse to listen to Anderson,
fire whole advisory boards,
have no interest in public
opinion and continue to ap-
point their friends to key posi-
tions, to extend the list of poor
decisions. The citizens must
understand the implications of

wasted time and money.
Service to our city is in jeop-
ardy, and we will pay more for
less.
Three-hour tour. Last meet-
ing, city council disappeared
for one hour that stretched
into three. What mystifies me
is what they were doing all that
time. At the previous meeting
it was determined that the city
was not going to grant any per-
mits for new hangar construc-
tion. Since then nothing has
changed, so what was on the
Shade Meeting agenda that
was worth talking about?


The Lang proposal to buy
the jet center and supposedly
tear it down couldn't have
been it because under no cir-
cumstances would she allow a
city asset to pump jet fuel into
airplanes at an airport. That
would stretch credulity. Were
they were planning to pur-
chase the lease and rent it out
as something totally unrelated
to aviation?
Doubtful, because that
might run afoul of FAA rules.
But whatever it was, it took
three hours. Time to drive to
Tampa and back; watch "Ben
Hur" on TV; take in "Laurence
of Arabia"; play 18 holes at the
Lake Venice Golf Club; or
maybe, if you're lucky, hear the
mayor's summary of the last
point made before adjourning.
Well, to be fair, only if he hur-
ried. The point is, this is ludi-
crous. We tie up staff, counsel
and stenographers and for
what? Another huge legal bill
with nothing to show for it, just
like the Milo short-term rental
case.
Alphabet soup. For any-
body who is appealing for
help, people should explain
the acronym of the organiza-
tion because as informed as
they think the public is, there
will always be people who
don't know what it means.
They should explain if they
expect to get any help.
Better signs. Haven't we
lost enough boys this month in
Iraq? How much longer can
this go on? Instead of waving
all the banners, couldn't we
have banners with "Thou shalt
not kill" or "Love thy neigh-
bor"? Perhaps that would end
the monstrousness that we are
going through right now. How
much longer can this go on?
Wave some banners that
might bring some sense in
their heads.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Virginia is for memories


Editor:
I am a proud parent of two VHS football players, one varsity
and one incoming freshman. I am neither rich nor poor, but I
know that I am going to be in the stands when my son takes the
field in Virginia, along with his dad, brother, girlfriend and
almost-grandma. Bet, (along with) hundreds of other Venice
football family and friends.
The experience that all of these kids will keep with them is
worth a couple missed days of school, budgeting our money
(nothing charged) and vacation days from work.
I read a comment from a reader that they felt it was a waste of
taxpayers' money. I would like to say to the best of my knowledge
the taxpayers (of which I am one) are not footing this bill. ESPN
is paying for everything for the players, the cheerleaders have
raised funds and the parents that can afford to go are paying their
own way.
Life is about family, hard work, making wonderful memories,
being a good person and experiencing all you can. Thanks to the
hard work of our coaching staff and players, this experience will
stay with them a lifetime. Think of the stories they can tell their
sons when they are VHS football players.
Thank you, Coach Peacock, and your coaching staff for all you
do.
Go Venice!

Blame starts at home
Editor:
In response to the letter
posited by Mike Miller of the
Waterford Companies, I must
say "horsefeathers."
The fact that your company
was built on a foundation of
sand the mere idea that the
good times would never end -
is what caused your downfall.
You are the little pig who made
his house out of straw, not the
rejection of the Renaissance
project, which is what you claim.
Perhaps your project would
have gone forward if you and
your employees had not en-
raged the locals with your
shameless "astroturfing," an
attempt to skew perception so
you could do what you want-
ed, which was to build a
Walmart.
If you truly want to find the
responsible party, try looking in
a mirror. If you are looking for
sympathy, it's in the dictionary,
right between "sycophants"
(which you surround yourself
with) and "syrup," which you're
laying on pretty thick.

Janis Fawn brought me an
Evesham Journal from the
Cotswolds in England. This
weekly newspaper has been
publishing since 1860. It is
chocked full of small news sto-
ries, lots of news pictures and
ads by the scads. It makes for
an interesting read as there are
treasures of news everywhere.
Greg Miller, while surviving
the brutal heat in Nevada,
picked up a Desert Valley
Times from the Virgin Valleym
which seemed sort of interest-


ing for a group of guys on a golf
trip. It's a very nice local paper
with one whole section devot-
ed to the classroom.
I was encouraged by the
recent efforts of the Taxpayer's
League and Gary Budway. I
had grown so accustomed to
that organization being a gripe
group without constructive
ideas on how to save money
for the citizens, which was
supposed to be its real func-
tion. It loved reliving past
problems of individuals or its
perceptions of ineptitude in-


stead of making an effort to
provide constructive thought.
Its look at the benefits of city
council members, especially in
times when the city is cutting
employees and other costs.
This is also an issue that most
of the candidates in the last
few years had vowed to do
something about.

Today's Ism: Why are hem-
orrhoids called that instead of
asteroids?

Jacaranda Library used to


have a nice pond out its south
window. It also can be seen
from Jacaranda Boulevard.
Now, it is so full of hyacinth
that it looks like you could walk
across it. Some say these are
good for the pond, yet I find it
interesting that Southwest
Water Management District is
spending a lot of money in
Charlotte County eradicating
this nuisance. Hopefully, we
can clean it out.
It's great having Fran Valen-
cic back doing her page. What

Subway set for Laurel


Road, 1-75 interchange


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Construction starts next
week on the first restaurant for
the Laurel Road interstate
junction 195. A Subway sand-
wich shop will open near the
Bank of Venice office in the
modem strip mall, Shoppes at
Laurel Square, 3479 Precision
Drive, North Venice, Laurel
Road east of the interstate.
Subway is introducing its
new interior design for this
shop with the new Tuscan im-
age, utilizing deep earth-tone
red and brown color scheme
with faux brickwork design,
said Hostetter Construction
Corp. of Sarasota Vice Pres-
ident Craig Campbell.
Construction in one of the
existing units in the strip mall
is scheduled to start mid-
August, said Campbell. The
typical layout of the 1,500-
square-foot restaurant will
have metal railing guides to
the preparation area.
Two-and-a-half years ago,
business partners Kristine


Boden and Rebecca Baker
acquired the Subway sand-
wich shop in Nokomis Village
Shops at Laurel Road and
Tamiami Trail near Saltwater
Cafe.
"Our existing shop is doing
very well and to us it seems the
Laurel Road interstate inter-
section needs a restaurant so
we think we will get a good
response out there," said Bo-
den. When the new sandwich
shop opens in late October
they will operate both stores.
She plans to introduce a
breakfast menu including
omelets, biscuits and gravy,
sausage and egg sandwiches
with fresh vegetables, in addi-
tion to the lunch and dinner
subs. There will be take-out
and 32 dine-in seats. The shop
will open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
seven days a week.
She is negotiating the only
downside affecting the new
project, the unwillingness of
the Florida Department of
Transportation to share the
existing food signage on the
interstate to include Subway.

Free insurance referral service


FROM CITIZENS PROPERTY
INSURANCE CORPORATION

Citizens Property Insurance
Corporation is encouraging its
policyholders, as well as any-
one having difficulty finding
property insurance, to shop
wisely for the best policy to
meet their needs.
The Florida Market Assis-
tance Plan is a free referral ser-
vice designed to match con-
sumers with licensed agents
and insurers who are actually
writing new business in Flor-
ida.
"Citizens urges its policy-
holders, consumers shopping
for a better premium or those
who are facing cancellations,
to first shop for coverage with


local agents who represent
multiple companies.
"If they aren't successful,
there are options such as
FMAP," said Scott Wallace, pres-
ident and CEO of Citizens.
FMAP's online service uses
a computer application that
stores property characteristics
and contact information about
consumers looking for cover-
age for their property located
in Florida.
The application matches
those seeking coverage with
participating licensed Florida
agents who have indicated
they have private market carri-
ers who can write a policy.
The matching agent or in-
surer then calls the consumer
to determine eligibility and


provide an offer. FMAP has
more than 1,000 registered
agents to review requests and
offer coverage if available.
"Historically, FMAP has
been very successful in placing
customers in the private mar-
ket," said Joe Bouthillier, direc-
tor of agent and market ser-
vices who is responsible for the
FMAP program.
"In 2008, over 4,100 policies
representing $771.2 million of
exposure were placed in the
private market through FMAP
and we expect even better
results for the current year."

Program, log on to www.

Chappel moves framing store south and consolidates


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Gulf Breeze Art & Framing,
1882 South Tamiami Trail, is
moving to reopen at 1978
South Tamiami Trail in Federal
Square, one block south of
Seminole.
"I will be reducing in size
and cutting overheads to con-
tinue in business," said owner
Tom Chappel.
Following 12 years in the
auto business in Indianapolis,
he came to Sarasota to contin-
ue working in the used car
business. A few years later, he
saw an opportunity to start the
art and framing business in his
Venice home garage.
Opening his first retail store
in the Brickyard Plaza on U.S.
41 Bypass, he soon moved to
Regency Square staying 11


years then moving to his cur-
rent location eight years ago.
Until he moves during the
third week of September, there
will be a big inventory reduc-
tion inventory sale. The prop-
erty transaction was handled
by George Huhn of Coldwell
Banker Commercial Realty.
"I'm going back to basics,
custom framing and art," said
Chappel. The store is open
Tuesdays to Fridays 10 a.m. to
5:30 p.m. and Saturday morn-
ings. Call 492-3001.
Ultra Nails moving
Remember the manikin
which stood along U.S. 41 in
South Venice promoting Ultra
Nails & Tanning Utopia? When
owner Lisa Saucier moved the
business three years ago to
1901 South Tamiami Trail in
the J & J Plaza at Seminole it
was retired as it needed cos-
metic surgery.
Now, for personal reasons,
Saucier has to give up her retail
business, but she intends con-
tinuing to offer her clients and
customers the nail care ser-
vices from her nearby home.
"On August 31 I have to
close the salon, but my Ultra
Nails Studio will continue from
home," Saucier said. She will


provide pedicures, manicures,
artificial nails, full set fills, wax-
ing and piercing. Call 321-
1235.
In closing the salon she is
seeking the highest bids for
individual inventory items
including tanning beds, booth,
supplies, showcases and signs.
Call 492-9440.
Waiting to reopen
Paramount Hotels Group,
LLC of Fairfield, N.J., are work-
ing diligently to get the
Veranda Inn on the island and
Days Inn on U.S. 41 at
Shamrock Drive open within
30 to 60 days according to
Pater Marino, senior presi-
dent. Until the motels are
released by the attorneys he
cannot proceed. "Given the
go-ahead I have the linens,
amenities and everything
ready to go as they are viable
hotels," said Marino.
During the transitional peri-
od, restaurants and retailers
located at both motels contin-
ue to operate.
Both locations, owned by
Best Southwestern Motels
Inc. of Venice, closed suddenly
a few weeks ago and the
Peninsula Bank of Sarasota
instructed Paramount to re-


evaluate the potential of each
business.
FDIC seizes
another bank
It's business as usual at
Colonial Bank's two branches
in Venice at 160 Pointe Loop
Drive, Tamiami Trail by Jaca-
randa Boulevard, and an is-
land office at 247 South Tami-
ami Trail. The offices now op-
erate as Branch Banking and
Trust (BB&T), of Winston-Sa-
lem, N.C., who are integrating
deposit records of Colonial
Bank.
Colonial BancGroup, Inc.
announced on Aug. 6, the U.S.
Department of Justice had tar-
geted it with a federal criminal
investigation relating to the
company's mortgage ware-
house lending division and re-
lated alleged accounting irreg-
ularities.
The 346 branches in Ala-
bama, Florida, Georgia, Neva-
da and Texas were closed by
the Alabama State Banking
Department. Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation was
appointed receiver. It entered
into a purchase and assump-
tion agreement with BB&T,
which purchased $22 billion of
Colonial's $25 billion assets.


FDIC assumed the remainder.
This action followed the
seizure the previous weekend
of Community National of
Sarasota County and First
State Banks by the FDIC and
subsequent sale to Stearns
Bank of Minnesota.
Founder goes
Axcess Medical Imaging
Corp. founder and Chief Exec-
utive Officer Stephen Miley,
M.D. has stepped down as the
company is reorganized under
Chapter 11 bankruptcy code.
Business continues as usual at
all Axcess Imaging locations.
Miley was a member of the
Venice Hospital emergency
room team for 15 years when
the company was part of the
Bon Secours group. In 2004, he
invested $10 million in the
most modern imaging equip-
ment setting up AxcessDx
Diagnostics in Venice with a
staff of 25. Earlier this year, he
continued expanding by ac-
quiring the Medical Resources
Company.

SRahal named to All-America watch list


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Cubera or mangrove
snapper off the jetty

For about a month or so,
reports have been coming in
about 8 to 10 pound cubera
snappers caught off the end
of the Venice Jetty. The
reports have been from nor-
mally reliable sources. I
checked with Mote Marine
and other sources and they
said cuberas normally stay
way off shore and some
interesting facts.
Cuberas grow to at least
100 pounds. An 8- to 10-
pounder is a baby. Mean-
while, the gray snappers
(mangrove snappers) only
grow to about 10 to 12
pounds. I also spoke to a few
offshore charter boat cap-
tains and they said the same
thing. All agree these two
fish look almost exactly
alike. Perhaps the teeth or
fangs are proportionate to
the size of the fish and there
is a slight color change in
their bodies.
Now, here is the big ques-
tion. If they are large man-
groves, why are they so close
to shore? Could it be the new
man-made reef just south of
the end of the jetty is attract-
ing them inshore? Maybe
they followed the bait in from
the deeper waters? Normally
a 12- to 14-inch inshore man-
grove is a great catch.
After gathering the facts, I
agree these are very large
mangrove snapper. Either
way, it's great to know that
these great fish are at the
jetty.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at

Venice High senior Dorothy
Rahal was named to the Under
Armour Girls' High School All-
America volleyball athlete Watch
List for the upcoming season.
Rahal, a 5-foot-6 libero, who
has committed to Marshall
University, is one of 14 players
from Florida on the list. The
entire list includes 383 players
from 37 states and serves as a
starting point for the Under
Armour All-America selection
process.
"I was surprised and thrilled to
see I had qualified for the All-
American List," Rahal said in an
e-mail. "Although I love playing
volleyball, it still takes a lot of
time, dedication, and practice to
see continued improvement.
Therefore, to be recognized by
the American Volleyball Coaches
Association is more than just an
honor, it is a reward for all my
hard work."
In November, the AVCA will
name 48 student-athletes as an
Under Armour All-American,
with 24 players being selected to
both a first-team and second-
team.
The 24 players on the first-


team will be invited to play in the
Under Armour All-America
Volleyball match and skills com-
petition on Dec. 20 at the St. Pete
Times Forum in conjunction with
the 2009 AVCA annual conven-
tion.
To be eligible for the Under
Armour All-America honors, the
student-athlete must have com-
plete senior year, head coach
must be a member in good stand-
ing in the AVCA and must use
MaxPreps.com to upload team
and individual statistics.
Rahal said she wants to be part
of the final 24.
"How cool would that be?"
Rahal said.
Last year, Rahal, who also
plays outside hitter, had 425 digs
and 372 kills as the Lady Indians
advanced to the regional final.
Venice opens the season at
home in a Preseason Classic
against three-time Class 5A state
champion Tampa Plant at 7 p.m.
Tuesday, Aug. 25. Plant, who
moved up to Class 6A this year,
eliminated Venice from the last
year's postseason. The Classic
continues on Aug. 27 as the Lady
Indians play Tampa Berkeley
Prep at 7 p.m.

BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Countdown to season: T-minus 9 days.
Venice High's historic season-opening
game on ESPNU is getting closer.
Head coach John Peacock couldn't be
happier.
'As far as our first game, I'm ready to

other games. Everyone is worried about
our first game. That's great. It's great it's
on ESPN. These kids deserve it and this
town deserves it. We are going to try rep-
resent this team and this town as best we
can."
Over the last eight years, Oscar Smith
has a 76-10 record.
"They are used to winning and we defi-
nitely have our hands full," Peacock said.
"Oscar Smith is special. They are fast. It's

Venice isn't intimidated.


"I will put this team up against any-
body," Peacock said. "We definitely have a
lot of work to do."
On the other side, Peacock is ready for
district competition.
"I'm more excited about getting in our
district," he said.
Venice changed districts this year and is
the school with the lowest population in all
of Class 5A.
The Indians are in District 10 with
Manatee, Riverview, Sarasota and North
Port.
"Manatee is ranked above us again for
the third year," Peacock said. "They are
picked to win our district. We are fired up
about that. Venice has never won three
district championships in a row. That's
one of the things we want to accom-
plish."

Businesses suPPendePing mercury


County extends deadline
for free disposal of devices

BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

When a blood pressure machine fell
and broke in a Sarasota medical office,
the company paid $12,000 to clean up
the hazardous waste mercury that
spilled from it.
Some older Americans can remem-
ber in childhood days playing with the
fascinating liquid metal that oozes
from broken thermometers.
Today we know mercury can be
deadly. It's toxic even in small amounts.
Prolonged exposure can damage
nerves, the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs
and immune system.
Yet it is still used in some medical
offices, in blood pressure cuffs, some
esophageal tubes and even in eye
weights.
When Sarasota County's solid waste
department offered businesses free dis-
posal of devices containing mercury,
the response was so good that the
county has extended the deadline to
Aug. 31.
The county sent 1,600 letters to busi-
nesses, including medical offices,
antique stores, thrift shops and clock-
repair shops.
They're the ones most likely to have
items with mercury, said Alison
Eggleston, an environmental specialist
with Sarasota County.
Some parts of the country have
banned items containing mercury.
Here there is no ban, but there is a
hazard associated with having them,
Eggleston said.
Mercury can be found in unex-
pected items. For example, some
clock pendulums contain mercury
because it is heavy and it makes for a


good weight. Thermometers, barom-
eters and even antique fishing lures
contain the metal.
"The bubble of mercury simmers in
the water and makes the lure move
back and forth in a manner that's inter-
esting to fish," Eggleston said.
Costly spills
So far, Sarasota businesses have
turned in 58 blood pressure cuffs,
nine thermometers, two tilt switches,
a thermostat and a few ounces of liq-
uid mercury.
"Mercury has been everywhere in
everything," Eggleston said. "Medical
businesses use it every day and don't
think of it as a hazard. That's why we did
this."
Mercury spills are a topic of some
interest because some hospitals gain
support for mercury reduction by
using spill cost-avoidance as a justifi-
cation for change, according to the
Sustainable Hospitals Project, a pro-
gram of the Lowell Center for
Sustainable Production at the
University of Massachusetts Lowell.
The true costs of mercury spills are
not well documented and tend to be
anecdotal, but the project has pub-
lished a list of potential costs. The esti-
mate for cleaning up three oral fever
thermometers was $5,000 and included
cleaning contaminated air and replac-
ing carpeting in an office, according to
the Sustainable Hospitals Project.
One hospital recently paid $10,054
to clean up a spilled esophageal tube.
Businesses interested in participat-
ing can call the Sarasota County call
center at 861-5000 and arrange for
pick-up and drop-off of mercury.
The free program is not accepting
fluorescent lamps, electronics or mer-
cury-containing lab chemicals.

Pets gone wild


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


Many came from people who moved away and left their pets behind.
Others came from pet adoptions that didn't work out and feral cat pickups for spay and neuter programs at
local animal shelters and organizations.
They are dogs and cats looking for a "furever" home.
The down economy has contributed to the increase in local agencies' pet populations. Some folks just can't
afford to keep a pet and pay for licensing, veterinary fees and pet food.
There is also a seasonal component. Many litters are born in spring and early summer.
Whatever the reason, in this part of our community stray pets need a helping hand. Many animal shelters and pet
agencies are willing to help with pet adoptions to get the animals into homes.
If you want to adopt any of the pets on this page or others not pictured, contact one of these local agencies:

Far right, Leo is a 3-year-old, 63-pound, neutered Husky mix. His
fur color is fawn. He is a handsome boy, but is a little shy at first.
He is a very laid back, loving dog who likes to observe the world.
He loves people, gives kisses when petted and would prefer to be
an only pet so he can get all the attention. Call 475-0636.

End of the line
Theresa Foley, owner and operator of the Venice Cat
Coalition, specializes in end-of-the-road cats and
works to get them adopted into loving homes.
VCC operates with a lot of help from volun-
teers, such as Barb McCarten, owner of The Cat
House, and 13-year-old Brianna Sperling, who
spends a lot of her summer days working with
cats.
The VCC has a program of trap-neuter-release
for feral cats unowned and untamed domestic
cats. McCarten helps with feral cats from St. Francis
Animal Rescue. Feral cats are born in the wild or may be
abandoned or lost pets that have reverted to the wild and
should not be confused with the wildcat species, according
to Wikipedia.
Foley said the T-N-R program is the answer to

She's been waiting a long time for
someone to love. She

they always choose another
cat to take home. Is there
someone out there for her?

overpopulation of cats and it is
free.
"It is cheaper to spay or
neuter a cat than to euthanize
it," Foley said.
The cost to spay or neuter is
$25-$55 with VCC. But other
places can charge from $65 to
$300 for the procedure. The
standard adoption fee is $75, but
it can be as much as $100.
If a person just walks into a
vet's office with a newly adopted


cat, the minimum cost is about
$150 for spay or neuter and to
get the animal up-to-date on
shots. It can cost even more,
depending on the pet's needs.
Microchip for pets
Microchipping pets is an
important measure that can be
taken to better assure the safe
return of a displaced pet. This
is especially important during
hurricane season. Pet owners
can contact their veterinarian
or one of the agencies listed


above for more information.
Kitten class
Mary Riley will hold a pet
adoption Kitten Class to help
people understand what they
are dealing with when they
adopt a kitten. Her number is
488-1769.
Fundraising
VCC holds a fundraising Cat
Walk in October. Last year the
event raised $2,500 to help the
center take care of the cats.


Recently, VCC (doing busi-
ness as Key West Cat Society-
Venice Cat Coalition) and St.
Francis Animal Rescue were the
recipients of a $15,000 grant
from the Florida Animal Friend
fund. This money is donated
when vehicle owners buy a FAF
license plate that promotes the
spay and neuter program.
The special license plates can
be bought online or at the license
plate office in the Sarasota Coun-
ty Robert L. Anderson Admin-
istration Center, 4000 South


Tamiami Trail, Venice.
The Key West Cat Society-
VCC includes The Cat House
and Feral Friends in Venice, and
will run the operational aspect of
the license plate grant monies.
St. Francis Animal Rescue serves
as the fiscal partner and will pro-
vide rabies vaccines for cats,
according to a press release.
For more information, to
make a donation or adopt a cat
from VCC, call 445-4322.

Manatee safety urged for Labor Day weekend


FROM SAVE THE
MANATEE CLUB


The last long weekend of
summer is almost here, and
traditionally, that means a high
level of boating activity on
Florida's waterways.
With at least 60 manatee
deaths from watercraft colli-
sions this year through July 31,
Save the Manatee Club urges
boaters to be extra cautious
and watch out for endangered
manatees over the busy Labor
Day holiday.
At least 22 watercraft-relat-
ed manatee deaths have
occurred since the start of the
summer boating season Mem-
orial Day weekend.
Five of this summer's water-
craft fatalities occurred in
Duval County, followed by
three each in Lee and Pinellas
counties, two each in Brevard
and Hillsborough counties
and one each in Charlotte,


PHOTO COURTESY OF SAVE THE MANATEE CLUB
Save the Manatee Club is warning boaters to watch out for mantees.


Clay, Collier, Flagler, Indian
River, St. Johns and Volusia
counties.
"The number of watercraft-
related manatee deaths in
Duval County is unaccept-


able," said Dr. Katie Tripp,
director of science and conser-
vation for Save the Manatee
Club.
"Even one watercraft death
is senseless and preventable,


but Duval County has had five
this summer, and a total of
seven watercraft deaths so far
in 2009. These deaths demon-
strate that Duval County's
Manatee Protection Plan, MPP,
is failing to protect the county's
manatees. The county must
take steps to keep additional
manatees from being injured
or killed by watercraft in Duval.
"These animals are often
mutilated from propeller blad-
es and blunt force trauma.
Some manatees die almost
instantly from their injuries,
but others suffer for days or
weeks. The saddest part of all is
that their suffering is pre-
ventable.
"It is our hope that if people
truly understand what it means
to hit a manatee and how man-
atees needlessly suffer, they will
slow down on the waterways
and always be on the lookout
for them," said Tripp.
To help safeguard mana-


tees, boaters should follow all
posted boat speed regulations,
slow down if manatees are in
the vicinity and stay in deep
water channels when possible.
A call to the Florida Fish &
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion at (888) 404-3922 could
save a manatee's life, or at least
help biologists learn more about
vessel impacts so manatees can
be better protected.
Florida shoreline property
owners are reminded to get a
free aluminum dock sign from
the club that reads, "Please
Watch for Manatees: Operate
With Care" by e-mailing educ
ation@savethemanatee.org or
call (800) 432-JOIN (5646).
Include full mailing informa-
tion.

New medication savings program aims to lower drug costs


FROM EQUIVAMEDS

EquivaMeds, a new service
that helps consumers reduce
prescription drug costs, has
partnered with The Com-
munity Pharmacy of Sarasota
County Inc. (www.cpsarasota.
org) and will offer free access
to the clients, staff and volun-
teers of The Community
Pharmacy.
Developed by Sarasota-
based Genuity Group LLC,
EquivaMeds helps its mem-
bers anywhere in the United


States save money on their
current medications by identi-
fying lower-cost, therapeutic-
equivalent options and com-
municating the results private-
ly back to patients or their doc-
tors. EquivaMeds has helped
consumers identify an average
of $800 in annual savings on
equivalent-class medications
- even if they're already tak-
ing generics.
The Community Pharmacy
of Sarasota County is a non-
profit pharmacy and advocacy
center that helps uninsured


and underinsured residents
from Sarasota County access
medications they could not
otherwise afford.
"Our service can help mil-
lions of Americans save money
on their prescription medica-
tions. We wanted to reach out
and help those in our own
community," said Phil St. John,
president of Genuity Group,
the health-care technology
company that developed
EquivaMeds in partnership
with local physicians.
Annual membership is nor-


mally $19.95, and comes with a
money-back guarantee for
paid members if EquivaMeds
can't save the member at least
$120.
The patent-pending ser-
vice searches thousands of
equivalent-class medica-
tions, both brand name and
generic drugs, that are up to
80 percent less expensive.
Like generics, equivalent-
class medications can save
money for millions of people
without reducing the quality
of care.


"This service is a much-
needed tool for us to use in
conjunction with our other
programs that assist uninsured
Sarasota County residents in
obtaining their routine med-
ications," Kimberly Chmielew-
ski, executive director of the
Community Pharmacy of
Sarasota County, said. "We
are proud to partner with
EquivaMeds to serve our
community."

SUDDEN JOLTS


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
If you have ever suffered a sudden
jolt and impact, there may be no noticeable
symptoms for weeks or months. The reason
for this is that the spinal discs and ligaments,
the tough connective tissue that holds bones
together, have no pain fibers. If muscle
spasms and inflammation around the nerve
roots develop, this may cause headaches,
dizziness, neuralgia, and loss of neck motion.
Sudden jolts and impacts are often
associated with whiplash injuries that result


when an automobile is struck from behind.
When this happens, the person in the struck
auto finds his body thrust forward and his
neck and head backward. In a major injury,
several thousand pounds of force may be
absorbed by the cervical or neck area of the
spine. Similar though less severe injuries can
also result from falls and body-contact
sports.
If you are suffering from pain in
the neck or any area of your back, you may
be able to benefit greatly from chiropractic
treatment.

Principals to be strict on high school rules


FROM THE SARASOTA
COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT

When students return to
Sarasota County public high
schools on Monday, Aug. 24,
they should plan to follow the
rules.
As part of a continuing
effort to improve the learning
environment, minimize dis-
tractions and promote acade-
mic success for all students,
high school principals in the
school district have commit-
ted to consistent and strict
enforcement of key rules in the
coming school year.
Executive Director of High
Schools Steve Cantees said ad-
ministrators and teachers will


be paying particular attention
to the rules regarding atten-
dance, appropriate dress and
the use of electronic devices,
such as cell phones and music
players. Last year school staff
successfully enforced these
rules with positive results and
principals have pledged con-
tinued enforcement this year.
As they did last year, princi-
pals at the district's high
schools will record and send
phone messages to the fami-
lies of students reminding
them about the rules.
Attendance is a particular
concern, Cantees said. Though
it may not be immediately
apparent that one student's
absence affects other students,


every absence causes the en-
tire class to lose ground acade-
mically when teachers have to
take additional time for review.
All high school principals
are sending telephone mes-
sages to parents to remind
them that school attendance
should be their highest priority
and, with rare exceptions, ab-
sences are only excused when
students are ill. Appointments,
trips and other activities
should be scheduled outside
school hours whenever possi-
ble.
Parents also are being asked
to check that students are
dressed appropriately when
they leave for school. School
dress codes do not allow stu-


dents to wear clothes that are
too revealing, suggest associa-
tions with gangs or convey
inappropriate messages.
Students are permitted to
carry cell phones at school as a
convenience, but district poli-
cy requires that they must be
turned off and kept out of sight
during school hours. Parents
are being asked to set the
example of respecting class
time by not calling students'
cell phones while they are at
school.
The complete district code
of conduct is included in the
2009-10 Student and Family
Handbook that all students
will be given to bring home
during the first week of school.


The handbook containing the
code of conduct also is avail-
able on the district Web site at
www.SarasotaCountySchools.
net.
Parents are being asked to
read the handbook and return
a form to their school verifying
that they have done so. They
also are being encouraged to
review and discuss school
rules with their students.
Cantees said he hopes par-
ents and students understand
that the increased attention to
enforcing school rules is not
intended to be unreasonably
restrictive, but to support a
learning environment that will
help all students achieve
greater success.


High school freshmen to

benefit from planning tool


FROM FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT
OF EDUCATION

A requirement by the
state has helped incom-
ing high school freshmen
prepare for college or the
work force.
Local school districts
project that last year's
eighth-graders will bene-
fit from the statewide
middle school Career
and Education Planning
course, and will enter
high school this fall equip-
ped with a career goal and
a personalized plan to
help them achieve it.
The state's Career and
Education Planning
course, taken in either
seventh or eighth grade,
helps students explore
their interests and re-
search careers. Once stu-
dents choose a career
goal and learn what level
of education they need to
achieve it, they create an
electronic Personal Edu-
cation Plan, through Flor-
ida's online student ad-
vising system at FACTS.
org.
With a high-school
plan in hand, students

Mark Wright, of Ven-

degree in social science

select the right number
and types of courses that
will help them achieve
their educational goals.
Students can select col-
lege or career prepara-
tion programs, or they
can keep their options
open and choose both.
Only courses that
meet the requirements
for those programs and
are offered at the stu-
dent's future high school
are available for selec-
tion.
The plan also encour-
ages students to take rig-
orous courses, including
International Baccalaur-
eate, Advanced Place-
ment, dual enrollment
and honors courses,
which are all available as
selection options.
"Courses taken in high
school are critical to
future success," said Dr.
Connie Graunke, execu-
tive director of the Flor-
ida Center for Advising &
Academic Support.
"Research shows that
while more than 90 per-
cent of students say they
plan to go to college, half
don't make it, and one of
the major reasons for not


going on is inadequate
academic preparation.
FACTS.org, and especial-
ly the ePEP can help with
that."
Once in high school,
the ePEP becomes a
means for students and
parents to check student
progress by accessing
their personalized high
school evaluations.
The evaluations track
steps toward meeting the
requirements for Bright
Futures Scholarship awards,
university and college
admissions and high
school graduation. The
ePEP also provides direc-
tion on the credits,
grades or other require-
ments a student may still
need to acquire.
The ePEP is flexible
and can be easily modi-
fied as a student's inter-
ests and goals may
change.
Students can also use
other tools on FACTS.org
to search postsecondary
institutions and pro-
grams in Florida, apply
for colleges online or find
financial aid resources.

Camp Director Gayle Heskett, left, and teachers Susan Rice and Bobbi Morgan
celebrate a successful Venice Symphony Summer Music Camp program.


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

This year 61 students
came together at the 17th
annual Venice Symphony's
Summer Music Camp. It was
the largest group ever.
Director Gayle Heskett
beamed as she watched all
the musicians perform. Her
daughter, Johanna Fincher,
introduced a new compo-
nent to the camp this year: 15
boys and girls performed as a
children's choir.
"They are not projecting
well," Fincher said, "but they
are singing correctly."
The students sounded like
a choir of angels.
Fincher wants to start a
children's choir in Venice. If
anyone would like to volun-
teer as an accompanist for


song in r

the group, call 488-1010.
Kenneth Bowermeister,
the new music director for
the Venice Symphony, wel-
comed parents and friends to
the summer camp. He
encouraged people to sup-
port the arts in their schools
and their community.
He performed with several
violinists and helped them
make "Twinkle Twinkle Little
Star" and "Mary Had a Little
Lamb" sound like concertos.
Other Venice Symphony
musicians participating in
the camp were Susan Rice,
Donna Smith, Alyson King,
Bobbi Morgan, Marina
Pope, Mike Fiore and Jamie
Marshall.
Jacob Campbell, a long-
time camp student, played a
different role this year. He
helped teach students and
served as an accompanist.
Heskett announced that
in the 17 years the camp has
been in existence, it has
produced five professional
musicians.
Three cheers to everyone
involved in this annual
Venice Symphony music
camp.
Sayonara
Pam and Bob Haney and


ny heart

their committee at the Venice
Art Center deserve a tip of the
hat for a fabulous summer
program. Master teachers
Dr. Mary-Louise Hooper,
Keiko Romerstein, Aiko
Anderson, Penny Hendry,
Linda Beaudoin, Alberto
Cruz, Julie Baxter and
Walter Yovaish showcased
Asian culture.
The center is closed for
its annual summer redo.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Marty Dover. This
terrific lady won the hearts of
citizens in Venice getting to
know the wonderful things
they do and reporting on
them. As I began making my
rounds, people told me how
much they enjoyed meeting
Marty and how they liked her
hat.
Marty was part of my recov-
ery team. Knowing the back
page in the Our Town section
of the Venice Gondolier Sun
was in such good hands put
my heart and mind at ease.
Thank you, dear friend.
Marty Dover is one of the
photographers and writers
who help make Venice great.

Some things
remain free
In a recent article about the
price increase at the John
and Mable Ringling Museum
of Art, I left out one very
important fact admission to
the art galleries remains free on
Mondays. Admission to the
gardens there is always free.
Thank you John Ringling.
Ringling wanted the museum
to be available to everyone and
at no cost.
Over the years, as the proper-
ty has been developed with the
addition of the museum of the
circus, the Tibbals Learning
Center and the restoration and
renovation of the Historic Asolo
Theater and its installation in
the museum's new visitor
center, the costs of maintaining
the museum have grown. The
board was forced to raise its
admission prices. The same
thing has happened at Florida's
theme parks where prices have
steadily risen over the years and
to an even larger degree than at
Ringling.
Prices also are up at Sarasota's
Marie Selby Botanical Gardens,
where admission was recently
raised to $17 per person. Chil-
dren 6-11 are admitted for $6.
Annual membership is a great
option for anyone who wants to
visit either of these sites a few
times a year. In the case of the
Ringling complex, the annual
member fee of $75 would be
paid for in just three visits and
at Selby, four $17 visits more
than pays for the $60 annual
member fee. And annual
members get terrific bonuses,
including deals at other muse-
ums, gardens and aquariums -
some in Florida and, for
Ringling members, all over the
United States.

Brown Suga sweetens with rich harmonies


Let's Go! Page 3


By LAURA A. SCHMID
PORT CHARLOTTE
HERALD EDITOR
Everybody may have
known each other's name
at "Cheers," the neigh-
borhood bar portrayed in
the popular '80s sitcom.
But that bar never had a
band playing there
everybody knew as well.
That's not the case with
the Brown Suga Band, a
band new to Port Char-
lotte that's already
making a name for itself
at several local hot spots,
especially Skipper's Cove
in Harbour Heights.
"They just came in and
asked to play," agreeing
to work for tips, said
Skipper's Cove co-owner
Donna Lukas.
"Now all the locals love


them," added bartender
Kathie Brown.
The locals love the
band so much, in fact,
they stick around long
past happy hour.
Bartender TamiVargo,
who serves as the band's
publicist, said normally
most people who come
for happy hour leave after
a couple hours, but when
the Brown Suga Band
plays, "People will stay till
midnight. They get up
and dancing, moving to a
groove."
That's just the way this
band likes it.
"We try to make it a
home, kind of like a
barbecue in your back-
yard," said band member
Edward Brown, creating a
family-like atmosphere.


"We try to get people
involved, encourage
people to come up and
sing."
The band itself is made
up of family members.
Edward is the patriarch of
the band, joined by his
daughter Robin Brown,
his son Vincent Brown
and his brother John
Brown. Edward and
Robin play keyboards,
and the entire family
harmonizes on vocals.
Sitting down with the
band for a roundtable
interview is like sitting
down at a picnic table at
a family barbecue, with
relatives chatting back
and forth as they answer
questions, laugh at inside
jokes, and tease each
other. And in this family,


members spontaneously
will break out in song,
performing an impromp-
tu a Capella four-part
harmony, with their rich
vocals blending seam-
lessly.
Robin describes the
band's sound as "very
soulful."
The band's repertoire
includes "all the music
you like to hear," Robin
said, including songs
from the '50s, '60s and
'70s, blues, R & B, gospel,
soft rock, beach music
and more. Sam Cooke, Al
Green, Lou Rawls, the
Temptations, even Kenny
Rogers, are just a few of
the artists the band
covers.

musical journey," Robin

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) works


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Nobody does Shake-
speare like Florida Studio
Theatre.
Right up there with


"Shakespeare's Greatest
Hits," a hit of an earlier
year in the Goldstein
Cabaret, is "The Com-
plete Works of William
Shakespeare (abridged)."


This portrayal of the
Bard and his 37 plays is
being presented in the
Keating Theatre by a
three-man troupe loaded
with Shakespeare credits
on their collective and
individual resumes.
Michael Daly has
portrayed Bottom in "A
Midsummer Night's
Dream," Toby Belch in
"Twelfth Night," Biondel-
lo in "Taming of the
Shrew," and Stephano in
"The Tempest," among
others.
Brad DePlanche
performed with the
Orlando Shakespeare
Theatre, Utah Shake-
spearean Festival,
Pennsylvania Shake-
speare Festival, Shake-
speare Santa Cruz and
others.
Christopher Patrick
Mulle was in 23 produc-


tions at the Pennsylvania
Shakespeare Festival, the
Orlando Shakespeare
and others.
That being said, this is
not the portrayal of the
Bard you would expect
after your study of his
works in high school
and college.
Though scripted, this
production seems more
like really good improv,
especially with the
occasional references to
today's world. For this
show you need to "brush
up on your Shakespeare"
but not as much as you
brush up on the Macare-
na and Rap.
Think "Laugh-In" with
three dudes in Edwar-
dian baggies instead of
Ruth Buzzi, Goldie Hawn
and Jo Ann Worley in hair
nets and/or bikinis.
Students of Shake-


speare will know how
much the Bard himself
would enjoy this look at
today in much the same
way as Shakespeare
looked at his own era.
This is not the first time
Shakespeare has inspired
a hit. Think "West Side
Story." Nor is it the first
time someone has
moved Shakespeare's
works into the present.
"Measure for measure,
until you have seen all
his comedies, tragedies
and histories done as
CliffsNotes brought to
life, you are making
"much ado about
nothing."
No "comedy of errors,"
this is pure fun "as you


like it" and a true "mid-
summer night's dream."
Act one covers every-
thing but "Hamlet"
which leaves the entire
second act to cover him
as well as Shakespeare's
153 sonnets "since
brevity is the soul of wit."
Besides, who needs
more than 51 seconds to
reenact "Hamlet?"
"The Complete Works
of William Shakespeare
(abridged)" continues
through Aug. 23 in the
Keating at Florida Studio
Theatre, 1241 N. Palm
Ave., Sarasota. Tickets are
$19-$32 per person.
Visit www.florida
studiotheatre.org or call
941-366-9000.

In his lengthy career,
Hyman has performed

Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge Ij1 .


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Manatees and man-
groves are not all one sees
on a Tarpon Bay Explorer
Cruise from Ding Darling
National Wildlife Refuge.
On a recent evening, a
friend and I saw a cor-
morant atop one of the
Tarpon Bay channel
markers. It turned out that
nearly every channel
marker was a resting place
for one or another of the
many sea birds that call
Tarpon Bay home. The
only other place I have
seen as many birds is
Gatorland, an Audubon-
sanctioned attraction
south and east of Orlando.
In addition to the cor-
morants and hundreds of
egrets and great egrets,
there were flamingos,
white ibis, herons and
pelicans.
We were aboard the J.N.
"Ding" Darling, with Capt.
Randy Curtis and Barry
Litofsky, our guide, and
some 30 other passengers
for the evening cruise in
Tarpon Bay.
"This is one of 550
wildlife refuges in the
United States," Litofsky
told us as we sailed out
into the bay about 7 p.m.
"The first refuge was
named in 1903 by Teddy
Roosevelt. It was not a
national park but was
"strictly for the birds."
You won't find hotels or
restaurants in a wildlife
refuge."
The "Ding" Darling
refuge covers nearly 1,000
acres on Sanibel Island in
Lee County. Tarpon Bay is
within that area and has
an opening into the
portion of the Gulf of
Mexico that is between
Sanibel Island and
mainland Florida in the


Directions:

Take Interstate 75 to Exit 131
(Daniels Parkway/Cypress
Lake Drive). Travel west to
Summerlin.Turn left and
follow Summerlin to the
Sanibel/Captiva Causeway.
Toll is $6 to the islands. There
is no toll on the return.
Continue to the four-way stop
at Periwinkle Way. Turn right
and follow Periwinkle to Dixie
Beach Boulevard, the
southern edge of Ding
Darling National Wildlife
Refuge. Continue north on
Periwinkle, taking the cutoff
on the right toward
Sanibel/Captiva Road. Watch
for the signs to Ding Darling
on the right. The first sign, at
Tarpon Bay Road leads to the
home of the Tarpon Bay
Explorers.

area of Fort Myers. The
refuge is named for
famous Pulitzer Prize-
winning cartoonist J.N.
"Ding" Darling, who was
the father of the Duck
Stamp Program in the U.S.
"Ding" Darling Days: Oct.
18-24, 2009. Visit

"There are loads of
dolphin in here," Litofsky
said. "Over there is an
oyster bar. It formed 30
years ago."
Sure enough, on the
right, what appeared to be
piles of oyster shells.
But mostly we noticed
the birds. Some are there
all the time but many were
arriving with the setting
sun, planning to spend the
night along the bay. The
mangroves seemed to be
their rookeries of choice.
Some of the green man-
grove "islands" were
nearly turning white as the
birds arrived for the
evening.
"All birds swallow fish

head first," Litofsky said.
"They regurgitate the
bones later. When they are
'nesting' they are repro-
ducing babies. 'Roosting'
is just for the night."
He pointed to a cor-
morant with a black chest,
a sign of a mature bird,
and baby pelicans that
were still mostly white
because they were still too
young to leave the nest.
"Charlie (Hurricane
Charlie in 2004) did not
bother the birds," Litofsky
said. "Two days before the
storm, they all left. So did
the sharks. They left the
shallow water for deep
water. The birds went
inland. In normal storms,
neither leave."
There is so much we can
earn from Mother Nature.
"The pelicans arrived
early this winter," Litofsky
said. "They knew it would
be a cold winter and it
was."
Continuing his bird
stories, Litofsky told us
that we would never see a
baby eagle because, "any

Darling Wildlife Refuge.


bird that lives in the trees
won't leave the nest until it
can fly."
Most of the birds were
congregating on the little
islands, which were far
enough from shore that
the raccoons which live on
Sanibel could not get to.
Most of the islands in the
bay are mangrove islands.
There is no dirt, just a
large clump of green-
leaved branches above an
assortment of intercon-
nected mangrove roots.
"The mangroves block
60 percent of the wind in a
storm," Litofsky said.
As we passed homes
along the shore, our guide
pointed out one that is for
sale for $3.8 million or it
can be rented for $18,000
per week.
Litofsky also pointed out
the kayak trail within the
bay. That is another option
for experiencing the
refuge. One can rent
canoes, kayaks, pontoon
boats, motorized canoes,
bikes, trail-a-bikes and
even fishing gear all the
better to explore the
refuge. The Tarpon Bay
Explorers handle the


rentals and give 15 percent
of the fees to U.S. Fish and
Wildlife.
Wildlife cruises such as
the one we were on
operate morning and
evening. The breakfast
cruise lasts about 90
minutes and the evening
cruise closer to two hours.
Before each cruise,
passengers experience a
touch-tank presentation
and introductory talk by a
guide. While you can pet
creatures in the tank, there
is still something special
about seeing them in the
wild. This time of year
there are plenty of mana-
tees in the bay. We saw the
gentle creatures before
and after our cruise. We
also saw some dolphins.
As one of the world's
largest bottlenose dolphin
populations is off Sanibel
and Fort Myers, there
always is a good chance of
seeing them before they
land their theme park
jobs.
We also saw what the
tide does to the water level
in Tarpon Bay. When we
boarded the boat, it was a
mater of stepping from


dock to boat. Two hours
later, with the tied out, we
needed steps from which
to climb out of the boat
and onto the dock. You
may experience some-
thing different as Litofsky
said there are as many as
four tides a day in the bay.
Also different from day
to day is the sunset.
Unless it is raining, it
should be spectacular as it
was the night of our
cruise.
After the evening cruise
my friend and I headed
back to the Sanibel Arms
West. We each had our
own suite in the two-
bedroom unit but the best
part was the famous
Sanibel Beach on the
western edge of the
property. We needed to
spend some time there
and we also wanted to
return to the refuge by day.
No two sunsets are alike,
nor are any two Florida
beaches alike but one of
the best things about
Sanibel is that in addition
to its famous beaches and
sunsets, there also is the
"Ding" DarlingWildlife
Refuge.

Find the most-ecology-minded places to visit in Sarasota


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
What is your favorite
place to "go green" in
Sarasota County?
Through September,
the Sarasota Conserva-
tion Foundation (SCF),
Sarasota County Con-
vention & Visitors
Bureau (SCCVB),
Sarasota County Gov-
ernment, Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
of Venice and the
Greater Sarasota Cham-
ber of Commerce are
hosting a contest to find
the most-ecology-
minded places to visit in
the county which is
otherwise known as a


cultural mecca.
While the coastal area
of the county has more
theaters per capita than
New York City, it also
has some of the most
famous beaches in the
world. Inland it has such
eco-friendly sites as
Oscar Scherer State Park,
Myakka State park,
Myakka State Forest plus
smaller eco-friendly
spots such as Shamrock
Park in Venice, where
one can see gopher
tortoises on land and
then go kayaking on the
adjacent Intracoastal
and possibly see a
manatee or three if
conditions are right.


One can walk or bike
or skate or jog along
Legacy Trail north from
Venice or head out to
Knight's Trail Park in
Venice and shoot some
skeet, which are not an
endangered species by
any stretch of the
imagination.
Because of the growth
of eco-tourism, the
above-mentioned groups
and organizations want
to get the word out that
this area has plenty to
offer to those who think
green when they plan
their trips. Contest
entrants will help with
their suggestions for
their favorite two-night,


three-day getaway spots.
Describe your ideas
for a dream getaway
that is eco-friendly and
within the county. Be
sure to include whether
you would stay in a
deluxe resort, a tent of
park cabin and if you
would swim, surf, kayak
or participate in some
other outdoor adven-
ture. Include the restau-
rants where you dine,
the trails you hike, the
things you do and see
and tourist attractions
you might visit. There
are prizes for adults and
children. Winners will
be selected by celebrity
and other judges based


on originality, variety
and on-line polls of the
public. Note the word
"originality," which
ultimately, is what the
sponsors want to know
about so they can
promote such places
and adventures in future
advertising. From dining
"green" at certain
restaurants to challeng-
ing friends in a paintball
contest in the great
outdoors, if you believe
it to be an eco-friendly
pastime, write about it.
Winners of this stayca-
tion contest will be
announced monthly.
Enter the 18 and under
or adult categories. Be


sure to include name
and email address. Tell
your story in 500 words
or less and include jpg
photos to show how
much fun your adven-
ture is. If you have
video, upload it to
YouTube (send the
embedded link with
entry). Complete rules
and regulations are on
the Web site. Prizes
include sunset cruises,
restaurant gift certifi-
cates and hotel pack-
ages. Visit www.srqE-

Lobster season continues in Florida Keys


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Key West Lob -
sterfest is over for
another year.
That means it is time
for real fans of Florida's
own crayfish to get
down to serious eating.
No longer as prevalent
as they once were, the
clawless creatures are in
season through March
31 in the Florida Keys.
While often served
up with drawn butter
like a Maine lobster,
one is more likely to
find them split down
the middle, stuffed
with crab meat and
broiled.
The meat also can be








HEPSAV IE


found gracing fresh
salads or nestled into a
bowl of pink and
creamy lobster bisque.
During Lobsterfest,
Duval becomes the site
of a giant street fair,
where lobster is king.
As much fun as Lob-
sterfest is, however, I
would prefer to be
there when there is less
competition for my
favorite food.
Nor do I need lobster
served up 87 ways. Give
me a broiled or boiled
crustacean with some
drawn butter, a lobster
bib and plenty of
napkins. It brings back
memories of the old
Holiday Inn in Osprey


(now a Ramada). Back
in the days of its
neighbor, Floridaland,
the motel had an all-
you-can-eat seafood
buffet each Friday. I
still harbor some of the
guilt for the demise of
that buffet and the
present-day scarcity of
Florida crayfish.
Fortunately, one can
still find plenty of
crayfish in Key West
along with piles of pink
shrimp from the Gulf of
Mexico and the conch
meat that inspired the
nickname "The
Conch Republic."

festival with your food,

Portofino intends to recreate the


atmosphere of its namesake in Italy


Situated in the heart of
Charlotte Harbor with
incredible views of
Charlotte Harbor, Portofi-
no intends to recreate the
atmosphere of its name-
sake in Italy, a charming
Mediterranean port village.
Although the tiered
dining room and its
polished wood trim is
attractive, your eye is
inevitably drawn to the
wall of windows where
flocks of sea birds fly by,
ospreys catch their prey
and dolphins play in the
waves. The outside deck
bar brings you even closer
to the natural beauty, but

Restaurant Review

Hours of operation and pricing
are subject to change.
we were there for dinner.
We timed it to dine in the
splendor of a spectacular
sunset.
When the server brought
our menus we were
pleased to see that the
specials and their prices
were in print. The Conti-
nental offerings often have
an Italian focus with a
sophisticated touch. For


his appetizer he chose a
special, grilled Louisiana
oysters ($12), six oysters on
the half shell crusted with
toasted Parmesan, some
chewy, but all flavorful.
Don't miss the garnish, an
exceptional mini-salad of
baby dandelion greens
with an Asian dressing.
Her Shrimp Portofino ($9)
was a wonderful saute of
large gulf shrimp in a
garlic, herb, and white
wine sauce over angel hair
pasta.
The crab cake dinner
($18), his choice, consisted
of two substantial corn-
meal-crusted cakes filled


with delectably creamy
blue crab. She had the
New York strip steak ($20),
12 ounces of tasty Angus
beef, perfectly seasoned
and flame-broiled. Both
entrees came with garlic
mashed potatoes and
extraordinary grilled slices
of carrot, green and
yellow squash.
Dessert choices were
displayed on a tray at our
table. We chose to share a
chocolate cube ($10), a
miniature dark chocolate
box filled with layered
white and dark chocolate
mousse with a cherry
center. All the desserts are


made here and pricey, but
if this one is any indica-
tion, they are most likely
very special.


What makes Portofino
stand out is that both the
food and the views are of
equally high quality.
